I started to use the word "depressed" in my title, but I suffer not from that state of mind. Although I've never been "depressed", it cost me a marriage (25 yrs ago). The ex is still "recovering". I had a difficult time understanding it. Still do.
Back to the post title. Perhaps it's the weather. This cold and gloom is getting to me, despite my little two weeker in Florida. And no end in site. Global warming can't come soon enough for me! I'm an outdoor person--golf and garden and hiking. Hard to do when the weather is like it's been.
Second, the truck (Toyota Tacoma) I ordered in mid December (!!) hasn't even begun to be assembled. "It's not on the production list", I'm being told. Boo hiss. I'm considering cancelling the order and buying one off the lot, even if it isn't what I really want. But I want what I want!
My sister with breast cancer is not doing so hot. I'm worried and concerned about her life. She's lost her hair and is fatigued from the chemo. Only 68 yrs old. I'm close to her, so it troubles me.
My "sustainable farming" daughter and family is consumed with building problems and debt with moving their operation to a new location. It's overwhelming what they have to do. Multi-tasking with time running out (Spring planting) is virtually impossible. One can only do so much in so little time. I help with greenhouse seeding and babysitting (today again), but it's not nearly enough. Plus, they owe me gobs of money, and I mean gobs.
I could add more to my list, but it's "depressing" enough, as is. Still, I have much to be thankful for. Look on the bright side, right?
