Sorry it's been a while.
I've been mired in depression, and it isn't lifting. I'm on meds and hope that some day they will help.
It's just been an awful series of ups and downs...if it isn't my mother, it's Clynt, and if it isn't them, something is happening to me.
Mom is having her first cataract surgery on the 28th, and I've filed preliminary paperwork for Clynt to hopefully get Aid and Attendance pensions from the V.A. Any information from someone who has walked that road would be SO appreciative. I'm getting both "VA will help" and "VA is worthless" comments. We really need the money to help Clynt, so I'm hoping it will be a fairly easy process.
Today, while checking my bank balance, I noted that the state tax board went into my account and removed $500. With no notice. They said "we don't have to tell you". Something about a mistake on my 2008 taxes. I had to borrow $100 to make sure my car payment doesn't get missed. So I have zip left after the bills until the 30th. I swear, whatever god I pissed off in another life is really killing me in this one. I never get a break. I'm still paying on Minnie's legs, Trixie's ear and Christmas. Le Sigh.
I am well aware that many, many people are in the same boat I am, but I tell you, my life has been down so long that I'm beginning to wonder if it will ever be good again.
So, that's why I've not been blogging, and so sorry to be the Debbie Downer today. I AM reading your blogs (Puddles had hives, Pip could sure use help with his bucket list, Bunny is still beautiful, and Kim is still helping Goldens. Dolores is moving ahead with life without David, Frankie and Ernie finally got the snowmans back in storage...and many, many more.) You lighten my day whenever I read you, and I thank you.
I'm still here, so I guess that counts for something.
