Morning Edition - 2/29/08


Wits End
There are times in our lives when we look around and think how has so much shit happened in such a short period of time. Just a month ago everything was coming up roses and in just the last week I am on a countdown to find 7-year old state tax returns or risk paying over $10,000 in taxes; one of my closest aunts lays unconscious on her deathbed; and I have a total of three, recently unemployed, friends. We won’t go into how I’m feeling about my physical fitness progress or whether there’s a disconnect between how I feel about my professional and personal relationships and what the reality of these is. All said, I’m at my wits end. Luckily, it’s Friday and I have the weekend to self medicate, sulk and get it together. Hey, it’s life not a hay ride.

On Blast
It’s always darkest before dawn. Every cloud has a silver lining. You never get more than you can bear.

What other line, thrown around during hard times, makes your skin crawl?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Sorry to hear that you're going thru a rough patch ma dude but that's just what it is, a rough patch. As the song writer said "Trouble don't last always!" (Ha, you have that TDRT! LoL)

~Damnit!

Man, I am sadden to hear that your aunt's health is failing and now you get a delinquent tax note; trust and believe that this is just one of many stubbling blocks you will encounter in your life and as sad as it may appear or be right now "it gets greater later." I assure you that "trouble doesn't last always." Continue to be strong, keep the faith and before you realize it this too will have passed. You will be just fine.

Sorry, man. That craps sucks. I know I would be up a creek without a paddle, because I can't keep up with shyt! So I wish you the best, my brother.

we'll cross that bridge when we get to it or its water under the bridge makes me think of that troll that wanted to eat the three billy goats gruff so anytime I hear someone say either I would like to punch that person in the face or fill a tube sock up with potatoes and hit them over the head with it...o much for making my skin crawl....I have psycho moments when people spout cliche's when I am having a breakdown...

I am thinking about you Cocoa. I am sorry to hear about your aunt, friends and taxes.

If I could pass you an open window, I would.

You'll pull through, Cocoa. I have no doubt in my mind about that.

As for your friends, I can feel their pain. I was just watching CNN coverage of the unemployment report released today. It ain't looking good.
