You know how there are times when you just need your people. You know the ones that know you, really know you. No frills, no masks, no fuss, just you. That is what I need right now. This week has been hard. Despite all that is going on around me I am trying to keep that Christmas spirit but let's face it, this world sucks! There I said it and I feel a little better. I love to hide out this time of year at home, Christmas music blaring pretending all is good in the world unfortunately this week I have not been allowed to do that. Yesterday I had to go to a memorial service for a very good friend whose daughter died. She was 38...young. She committed suicide. I know I can hardly believe it myself. Seems to be a theme in my life this year and I am starting to hate it. Before I headed off to that memorial service I had to make a call to Child Protection. Usually this is not a big deal, I make the call and leave the rest to CPS. This case is different. Sad. That is about all I can say about that. I also hate it. So I am doing what I do to survive. Writing it here. This is my place to dump so sorry if this is not uplifting but I just had to dump. BLAHHHHH....So come friday I am leaving it all behind and I will spend the weekend with the ones I love the most in the world and I can hardly wait. My Christmas music will be blarring and all will be right in the world again.
