Another year has past by, not much different than the one before. Little steps forward, never leaps. Slow and steady. It my only way. Too cautious some may say. I’m ok with that. I’ve lived through much chaos. I’m looking for peace. Cautiously protecting that possibility.
This year….I have a feeling about this one. I have a purpose. I have many purposes. I’ve always said I’d help others like me. I think it has always been a part of my plan. I’ll never look away when something is uncomfortable. I’ll walk toward you hoping to find the right words, trusting my heart and instincts guide me. You are never alone. I’ve got you.
This is one of the songs that pops up in my head for numerous reasons. Some of the verses ring so true.

This is such BULLSHIT SONY!!! If one child mimics this and hurt another child or worse causes their death, that will be on you. This is seriously so irresponsible! Food allergies are real. My daughter has a severe peanut allergy and if you don’t know what that feels like, it is so scary EVERY DAY! What if someone throws a peanut in her mouth because if this!!!!???!!! This is NOT ok!!!
I had a couple sleepless nights this week. My son had a random asthma attack in the middle of the night that was very, very scary. He has asthma but isn’t affected daily. Actually he’s only had 2 attacks a year apart. It hasn’t really been a part of our lives, until it was. Scary. So scary. So I haven’t slept because I couldn’t stop checking on him for two nights to make sure he was breathing. He’s better now, thank goodness. He went back to school yesterday but I was a little scared to take him and called twice to make sure he was ok. Yes, that scary.
When he went back to school I desperately needed to get groceries. I felt slightly delirious since the lack of sleep was extreme. It was at that point where I was too tired to day sleep (aka nap). So I walk through the grocery store in a daze, knocking random shit in the cart until I felt I had something useable. Then I go to check out with one of the recognizable cashiers….one of my favorites. The carts in front of me went through and it was my turn….I forgot to move forward. She had to tell me to push up. Then she asked me if I found everything I needed to which I responded, “huh”. Followed by laughs and a shoulder shrug. She asked me if I had any coupons and I laughed and told her I’m not that kind of person but I totally respect the women with coupon binders buying shit they don’t need because with their clipped coupon it could be purchased for 20 cents. I explained I was too disorganized for 20 cent unnecessary groceries. I’m literally talking about nothing…I don’t even know why I attempted to talk. Seriously. She told me my total and I put my card into the slot and then stood there in a half awake half asleep daze until it timed out. I apologized. She laughed and entered it again. I inserted my card, then over the loud speaker, blah, blah, wah, wah…card still in card reader…me – Did they just call a code blue in the self checkout? I’m totally serious. Card timed out, checkout lady bent over crying, laughing at me so hard and now I’m laughing too. She asked if I worked at a hospital and I told her no but I watch a lot of hospital tv show so almost. I ran my card again as she told me to push this, that, and the other. I told her I was sorry and she told me I made her day. Still laughing. I pushed the cart to my car, loaded it, and drove home. I got out, went inside, and an hour later remembered I forgot to unload my groceries. Thank goodness I didn’t buy milk.
Code blue in the self checkout 🙄. Wtf?!? Haha.
