Productive Day

...for a day off.

It was just one of those days where I had a lot planned. It started out at the doctors for my 6 month visit. Everything is looking great! Since the last time I saw her I'd lost 19 pounds. Okay, not much in 6 months but I'll take it. That little weight loss has helped big time with the results of the blood work they did on me last week. Got my very first flu shot, too.

Grocery shopping after that was done in record time and for a change I didn't go over a hundred dollars. Course, hubby is leaving on Sunday for a week. We're both looking forward to a break from each other. I don't care how much you love your other half, you need time away from one another once in a while.

Then I had to get new tires for my car. I absolutely hate buying anything for the car because let's face it, you don't see anything for your money. And, tires aren't pretty. However, I've learned a long time ago that if you take care of your car it will take care of you.

Afternoon was for me as I got a haircut. Then went home and took a much needed nap. I haven't been sleeping very good lately. Losing someone from suicide has really affected me and I can't seem to get Donald out of my mind. I know time will help.

It is so hard to be in so much pain that you think you can escape it by killing yourself. I myself have been there and realized that it is suicide is a temporary escape from the depths of the hurt. The only thing that the person does not think about are the people left behind. I had an aunt who did this even though she was mentally ill it was hard to understand why. My thoughts are with you and your family thru your suffering.

Thank you everyone...your thoughts mean a lot to me. I've lost people I love before but this suicide is something I've never had to deal with.

Good luck with your flu shot on Tuesday Kimmyl! Are you young enough to get the mist?

You're so right rm2h...suicide is a temporary solution. I'm sorry to hear about your aunt.
