Stuck on Stones

For things that catch my interest at the moment. Expect lots of stones and my brand of geeky.

I want something to go right today.

I tried to get a little extra sleep after getting the kid off to her first day of school this year. First time in weeks I’ve allowed myself to take a nap and I had nightmares.

My therapy appointment got canceled for reasons not my own.

Kid’s bus was late, got an email from the school 20 minutes after she should have been home that the busses had only left 5 minutes before that. Instead of dropping her off near the beginning of the trip like the schedule said they would she was dropped off nearly last.

Because of the above we missed the martial arts class I help teach and she takes.

My stomach has decided to rebel.

Kid just dropped the iPad Air in the bathroom where she wasn’t supposed to take it any way. Going to have to replace the screen and I think I have a glass shard in my finger now. 

I think I am beginning to get a migraine. My hands hurt more than normal and I am missing key strokes that I shouldn’t be. 

I have an upset kid and the other half isn’t due home from work for another couple of hours due to extra meetings. 

My pear tree actually has pears on it!  All of four, but as the last couple of years we didn’t get any I’ll be happy with that. On the other hand there are no peaches on the peach tree and we’ve been getting a lot of peaches with more than just skin over the stones for the last few years. And the apple tree has one apple I could find.

I keep seeing the latest FB thing that basically says ‘oh we are boing so supportive to those that need it, those people that have all ways been there for us probably need us the most etc … so don’t share this copy and past it! I did this for a friend so you can too!’

Right now it feels like a passive aggressive attack every time I see it. I’m not suicidal, so it could be worse. I’m not having full blown panic attacks, just nausea and increased heart rate (when trying to watch the beginning of Thor. wtf brain?!) I’m in a fairly privileged position, other people have it so much worse.

Yeah, I’m bad at asking for help from most people. Given the above responses it is not hard to see why. Add to that the oh you do martial arts but need help lifting the bag of cat litter? insert weird side eye thing here. Outside a few people if I mention that I am having trouble keeping the house clean the advice I get is to take it in pieces from people who know my hands and wrists don’t work right. That have been told that I can’t do certain things, like scrubbing, with out the risk of losing the use of my hands faster.

So I see that post and wonder if the people posting it have actually read it. Actually noticed the people in their lives it describes that could use that extra little bit of cheer or help. Because they haven’t noticed me.

If anyone has recommendations for non angsty, happy ending stories, with good characters I would really appreciate it.

I just need to be able to read it on an iPad. My normal comfort reads are out because I can’t hold the books opens with my hands/wrists acting up.

Mako was trying to eat my toes as Letters looked on.
