Hey, At Least There's That!

"I want to grow a flower for every time someone tells me "FUCK YOU." Then I'll go back to that person and pin the flower on their lapel in a gesture of friendship. And while they are looking down on it in astonishment, I'll bunch up my knuckles and punch them in the face."

I Want Two Apply For A Job At Our Country's Largest Funeral Home,
 And Then Wear A Suite And Noose To The Job Interview.

My crappy, sarcastic mood continues. Our living situation is such a mess, and we still haven't any idea where we are going to move to. We are spending our days panicking, packing, and preparing to head for parts unknown. Will don't know if we will have to get rid of the cats, also known as my babies, and yes, we have hired a lawyer in an attempt to try and get back some of the money that has been defrauded out us. We are hoping to get enough back from the taxes to have key money, and if all this depressing stuff isn't enough, I take my car in Tuesday for repairs on the fender that was smashed last week. They auto body guys say it will look okay, but probably not perfect. Sheesh. Did I mention my car's 1 year anniversary was this past Thursday, April 2nd? Smashed in less than one year. Sheesh. 

But hey, at least it's going to rain this week. 

No, that's not inconvenient. Thanks for asking!

Mood: Okay, But Sarcastic

A Spring Perspective

"Spring is nature's way of saying... Let's Party!"

~Robin Williams

The last week... GOD IT'S ONLY BEEN A WEEK...has been shitty, but not so shitty that I can stop for a moment and enjoy how lovely everything looks. Life has a way of working itself out, so I am hanging on, and beautiful blossoms like this one really helps me to keep things in perspective.

Everything Falls Into Place

Mood: Okay

A Look Back At March 2015 (Never Tell God Your Bored)

"What I like about photographs is that they capture a
 moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce."

~Karl Lagerfeld

Well, March 2015 was a blur... did anything interesting happen? I mean other than in my life? Oh yeah, I remember now... lets not talk about it, shall we? Anyway, I know I usually post my monthly retrospective on the last day of each month, but once in a while I post on the first, and this is one such time. I expect there will be an abundance of new photos in April to make up for the missed posts of March. Life is very interesting, and hectic, and scary for me right now, but fortunately all those things usually make for plentiful photo opportunities, so, STAY TUNED!

And Now, A Look Back At March 2015

A little bit of advice...

Never, EVER tell God your bored!

Mood: Happy

And Then This Happened...

"Accidents are not accidents but precise arrivals at the wrong right time."

~Dejan Stojanovic

And Then This Happened...

As if last week wasn't heartbreaking enough... someone hit my car, as it was parked on a city street, with me in the passenger seat. I was waiting for Alan, he was in our favorite deli picking up some sandwiches. We were starving. We had just got back from a trip to Oakland, to find out some information to take to our newly found lawyer, who handling our case regarding the illegal cottage we have been living in. Honestly, the whole week last week seemed like a true Murphy's Law kind of existence... whatever could go wrong... DID GO WRONG!

But, thankfully, we have our health. We have a roof over our head, at least for the next 60 days. We didn't crash into a mountainside in the French Alps. I was in a fender bender, but I wasn't injured, and the scrap, while hurtful, will be fixed. All $650 of it. I just have to shake my head though, because I haven't even owned it a year, that anniversary won't happen until April 2nd 2015. 

 I am tired. I am still scared about my housing situation. I am looking at my car and feeling hurt, because I try so hard to take care of the few things I do own. But at the end of the day, it's just stuff. My cats, Hendrix, Dylan and Joey are living breathing property, but I don't know if I will get to keep them if I can't find a new place that I can afford, that allows pets. There is still a lot to worry about, and I am, but I can only take it all one step at a time.

10 seconds at a time.

Mood: Tired
