Blog Therapy

I haven't blogged seriously in ages, mostly because I've been so busy with life as it happens that there's been no time to document it.

Over the last six or eight weeks, the stressors in my life have been mounting. Each on its own is completely handleable, but as they continue to add up in a seemingly short period of time, I'm noticing a physical change in my body, lowered energy levels and an emotional unwellness akin to lonliness, heartache and depression.

The biggies are:
Tiki went out in a rainstorm back in July and hasn't returned.
My Dad passed away on September 14.
Nathalie returned to Quebec on September 26.

Each of these probably deserves a novel of a post each, but suffice it to say I'm really not up for that, and it's probably best to keep most of it out of the public realm.

As the last four or five days have gone, my sleep pattern has evolved into something of an 11PM to 5AM cycle with a frenzied sense of "I gotta do it all, and now!" in between.

Today, however, I slept in to the point of missing my 7:30 Chiropractic appointment. Two hours later, I was in his office, ready for a much-needed adjustment.

I then found myself in Chapters killing time before an eye exam at 11:40, wandering around aimlessly looking at books for no apparent reason, sucking back a half-coffee-half-whole cream pick-me-up. Then it was off to COSTCO for some kitty liter because...

I returned home to find a new resident feline in the window:

Meet Sir William. He hails from the Hanna SPCA, and he's the sweetest guy!
(the orange paper in the window is to keep the birds from cracking their wee beaks... Sir William would be happy about that, I'm sure!)

Congratulations on Sir William. Sorry about the other stuff.

Happiness resides not in posessions and not in gold; the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.

It's tough when life throws so many hardballs at you. One can only keep so many balls in the air! ;)

Isn't it nice to know that, as you wander around aimlessly, things fall into place?

Also, I've been thinking of you... I just got my stuff shipped here from my California place. It's been ten months since I've seen it, and among the valuables ~ the two bowls you sent me. I'm gonna take a picture of them sitting on my shelf and send to you!

I know... I still owe you something in return... I'll get to it... don't worry... may take years... but it'll happen! :)
