Work, Work, Work

I can describe my work in four little words. I Need A Vacation! I can’t wait for the tree day Holiday! I do feel grumbly today! Not only about work, but life in general. 

My family had another cat die yesterday. He was old and sick, but the emptiness is getting to me, around the house. This loss on top of the other has walloped me. This one was expected, but too close to the other. 

I’m grumbly at work, because some how I’m involved in some office politics with another workers problem. I think, Why Me? The Secretary should pick on somebody else, for a change. I’m tired of taking this crap. I got words for myself, Too Nice! 

If only she knew what I really thought! What if someone really knew what I thought and felt? That’s a real concept! I would have plenty to say! Believe Me!

Therapy Pets

My daughter had a beloved pet suddenly die a little over a week ago. He touched each one of us and  added love and a sense of fun back into our lives. Since his death, this home has been sad and empty without him. I think he went in every room and almost covered the square footage of this property. I believe his energy is still running around near us. 

So, my youngest daughter brought her dog over yesterday, that she had adopted from the local shelter 9 months ago. Aunt May, has taken on a new role as our family Therapy Dog or Therapy Pup, as I like to call her. I watched Aunt May doing her therapy, and it was working. My daughter whose cat died, was a lot happier and stroking the dog. Aunt May came to the Rescue, of my daughter. She saught her out too, by cuddling with her. It’s amazing that animals know just what to do, to help heal the hurt and wounded humans. I believe dogs that are war veterans, really are the best medicine for their soldiers, in PTSD. In all cases of sudden death, animals should be sent in as Therapy Pets, for the bereaved. I got my first pet when I was 15, and it would have been really good therapy, to have one earlier in my life. 

My sister and I got our Irish Setter puppy when we were 15. She was our Therapy Dog, before I knew what that meant. She was also a companion Service Dog for our mom, who had Multiple Sclerosis and was in a wheelchair. When our mom was alone, Penny, wouldn’t leave her side. She sensed that our mom was helpless, and that was true. Penny, provided an unconditional love to our mom, when I couldn’t accept, my mom’s long term decline and illness. I had already lost all my beloved close relatives and dad, and couldn’t accept losing my mom too. 

So I totally believe in Therapy Pets. By far, they are better than any pill, and ending one’s own life from PTSD, or anything else. More animals should be trained as Therapy Pets! That’s a Non Profit, I could pledge my heart and money to!

Needing Someone

I’m a person who needs someone or something very special in my life! I was born to be this way, not only for myself, but for others too. Are folks meant to be together? I think so! I’ve felt it so strongly! 

Are pets supposed to be with us too? Yes, I think so too! Both, overwhelmingly need us! This I feel, is So True! My daughters pet cat just passed away last Saturday. He touched each one of us, so deeply. I have a pet void in my heart, but not a human one! 

Since January, I learned to totally share myself with my words. I’ve been living my authentic self, with no regrets. I am, who I am! No Excuses! People can hate me, if they want to, that’s their business.  

But that’s not my business. I’m in the Love Business! I always have been, in that business. That’s what I believe in and the way I choose to live my life!

What I Live For

There are so many things I live for these days. I live for love, Weekends, funny pet memes, future vacations, music, love messages, and hugs! I got to have hugs! Music also makes my world go around! It always has. Talking, cuddling, and spending time with all the folks I love means the world to me. I live for giving and receiving precious love! I think I was made to give my love to my dear love! 

So, I live for the future experiences that are yet to come. Thinking about this Really Excites Me! I know the love I have is real and extra special! It’s the kind of love, I didn’t ever think I would find and experience. It’s a once in a lifetime, kind of love. I feel devoted and so passionate. This love is a dream come true! It’s hard to believe, because love doesn’t happen to me. Heartache happens to me, but maybe there is love at the end of the rainbow! 

This is what I live for, Love and Beautiful Possibilities! It took my whole life to get here, but the best things come to the patient ones!

I do like to communicate electronically. I would rather do this, especially if the subject matter is hard to talk about. If I’m angry, it difuses my tone. I try to limit my anger, because I end up crying and it’s a mess! Having two people crying, could be a river of tears. Especially, if you love that person. 

Face to face communication is always hard for me. The best way to communicate with me, is through touch. But some folks abuse that privilege and my boundaries. I’ve been touched where I didn’t want to be touched, during a school field trip, once. It sent an alarming shock up my spine. It was uncalled for and unwanted. It came from behind me at a Science Museum. 

Again folks think I’m open game for those kind of touches. I’m not! Bad folks literally do or say things behind my back. I don’t need that kind of communication. It’s confusing to me and unwanted!

Laying Low

I’ve learned this year, sometimes to lay low in the classroom. I look at the students coming in over the learning threshold and I size them up. Do they want to learn today, are they going to be trouble makers, or are they greeting me cooperatively? 

I always size people up, whether they are good team players, kind folks, want to run the show, or are open to be friendly to me. What are their intentions? I had some really warm greetings in the classroom and I thought, where did that come from? The warmth, caught me off guard. 

I’m friendly with my work, but I’m  

Still all business. If I’m at work, these days, I try to be on the job. I think I’m a mystery to some folks. Even my mom didn’t know everything about me. She knew a lot though. Moms are really alert and can hurt your feelings sometime. My mom was sometimes like that with her direct remarks. She didn’t know how sensitive and private, I was. 

But mom was right, about me.

Summer Vacation

I’m ready too, for a break from school. During summer breaks in previous years, I worked as a cashier at Target. I did that for 7 years+ and just can’t do that anymore. That’s a good thing! I got a repetative motion injury with my left thumb and Palm. Nursing injured my neck and gave me a hernia. Teaching has finally caught up to my feet. So I’ve been researching what to do about my Plantar Pain. I thought about nurses, with them almost always being on their feet. I spent over 13,000 hours on my feet, doing nursing. My foot, is finally revolting. It’s big business, in the foot care field. Shoe companies, Podiatrists, and foot care products, must make a ton of money! Especially with Professional women. They love their shoes! 

In the classrooms, I look for a place to sit down and rest my foot. In Nursing and at Target, I would melt into my chair at meals and breaks. I hated to get up, when I had to. But Summer, is almost here! Summer means to me, The County Fair, maybe a family camping trip, maybe work, dog sitting, and beach time. I love summer veggies and barbecues. I love The Fourth of July! Summer means going back to the Farmers Market! It means art fairs! 

When I was in NY, it meant trips to The Adirondacks and all the lakes there. My faves are, Blue Mountain Lake, and 4th and 8 th Lakes!
