Compact companions

When I was younger I tried hard to have friends to hang out or do things with. It didn’t work out. Now when we drive by houses that are having parties- You can tell by all the cars clogging up the street- I wonder just how they managed to do it. I would love to have friends come over, play games, eat food and be rowdy.

I’m just stuck with family and we’re not a big bunch- but what we lack in size we make up in attitude. lol 😂

A night to forget

Times have been rounded since I was sort of out of it but this was how crazy my night was.

12:30am – so tired, eyes keep closing while I’m reading. This is my cue that I’m ready to sleep. Turn off iPad and curl up under the sheets cozy. NOPE- my mind goes haywire and starts thinking about marbles and race track ideas. I’m now wide awake and tossing and turning.

1:10am – give up try to make myself fall asleep, start readying again.

2:30am – I’m starting to pass out. Yea! Get comfortable but now my body has turned into a personal barometer letting me know that there is an incoming front. Wide awake again tossing and turning.

3:00am – start readying again to distract me from the pain.

4:10am – That was the last time I remembered seeing before I woke up the next morning.

Inherited traits

My parents came up to help us with some projects around our place. As the men worked outside, the women attended to the filthy layers of dog hair, dust bunnies and cobwebs that had built up since the beginning of the year – (when all the chaos started).

As we cleaned it became clear that both of us was OCD-ing and they were starting to clash. When I tried to complain about our disagreement she brought up a good point. If I was going to inherit anything I should be grateful it was the OCD and not Alcoholism – which runs rampant in my family.

I do a lot of drinking (non-alcoholic) when I’m depressed since I don’t eat – all my will to move is gone. It’s not healthy – it causes other problems both physically and emotionally for me and my family – who has to watch.

I’m glad I can’t handle caffeine – might as well as give me speed – I hate to think what alcohol would do to me.

Wanted

Housekeeper willing to clean up after 4 dogs, a zombie, a lazy artist and workaholic.

The zombie is allergic to all chemicals and two of the dogs are afraid of vacuums. The workaholic only comes home to eat and the artist stays behind a screen most of the time.

This sounds like a good story premise. lol
