Already the day is off to a better start than usual. I got up early and enjoyed my coffee and the cool morning air (at least cool compared to now) and was happy to see that we finally have some sunshine. I always do better when the sun is out.
I dropped Zachary off at camp a little later on, then gave in to my desire to shop. BUT I spent less than 20 bucks! I got some necessary items and a new purse ($2.50!) and a pretty ring ($4.00). We didn't have a bathmat in our bathroom, so I picked up a really nice one at Beall's Outlet for $8.00. Everything else I got at GoodWill ~ a pair of shorts, the purse and the ring. The purse looks like new, the shorts are comfortable and fit nicely, and the ring is garnet with silver setting. I was really eyeballing a wicker couch for on the porch, but they wanted $70.00 for it and I just can't afford that. But now I should be stocked for clothes for the summer and fall.
I slept really well last night, I didn't wake up more than once and that was very briefly. I feel like a different person when I get good sleep!
I'm a little saddened today. I had a friend here that took me off of her friend list and I don't know why. I wish I could send her a message but she set her profile to private, and now I can't message her on Facebook either. I wish she would talk to me and tell me if I did something to offend her! Isn't that what friends are supposed to do? Talk it out when there'sa problem? I just don't understand and it hurts my heart. 🙁
I'm excited because I think we've found what we're going to do for my birthday in August. There's a state park here called Blue Springs and it's a few hours away. It's a beautiful spring-fed river that's clear and cold and you can float down it on inner tubes for a couple of hours. We'd be renting a cabin that is fully furnished and has central air and 2 bedrooms. There are enough beds for our friends and their kids to go too, and we're trying to convince them to go with us. There's a screened in porch with a picnic table, a firepit to sit around and laugh and talk until midnight, stargazing and nature trails and so much to do. We can go kayaking, swimming, walking and all sorts of other stuff. I just hope we can come up with the money to afford to do it. It will be about $200.00. Ouch. If we can set aside $50.00 per paycheck we'll be able to pull it off. If not we'll have to do it at a later time when we've saved up some funds.
I don't know what's up with me. One day I'm really depressed, then the next I'm happy, then the next I'm exhausted and sad again. What the heck is going on? I don't understand these fast mood swings and what's causing them. Today I'm being productive and in a good mood. Will tomorrow be sad and slouchy again?
As for SSD, I think I've decided to hire a lawyer. I even found one that specializes in Social Security claims. I'm not one to quit fighting so easily. Sometimes I want to give up on things, but not this time. I'm going to keep fighting until I get what I should rightfully have!
Well, I'm going to do some more laundry, pull out what's for dinner so it can thaw, clean the rabbit's cage, feed the birds and maybe vacuum and mop the downstairs apartment. We'll see how long it will take me to run out of steam, lol. I've got to do stuff while I'm feeling up to it just in case tomorrow's a not so good day.
I wish you all the best, and to that friend that I offended somehow, I'm very sorry ~ please contact me so we can talk it over. 🙁 I miss you!
