Lazing about
...I'm getting old. or I feel like it anyway...it's cold and damp and I just wanna snuggle in the bed and not move. I need to get out of the house...shopping, blech...but I'm too damn lazy to do it right now. Fixed me a pot of coffee and some bisquits and still feel lazy.

back to bed....maybe I can get my toes warm somehow.

My online friend has a quote
that she uses as her signature quote,

Life is not a journey to the grave with the
intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in, broadside, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out and loudly proclaiming ~
Wow, What a Ride! ~ Author Unknown

I absolutely adore this quote! It's so awesome!

I feel like this today...rode hard and put up wet...but still happy.

Touring the damage...
Jared and I went to Intercoastal City today, just to go, to take a look at the damage. It was like walking into a war zone, it was that bad. You know how on TV you see the footage of the streets littered with debris, filth and general chaos that's how it is back there. People's whole houses and entire lives are stacked on the side of the road. Washers, Dryers, hutches, toilets, beds, mattresses, EVERYTHING stacked on the side of the road. On the way back we saw these two guys digging thru the trash, I'm not sure if they were digging thru their own trash, to find something they were missing or if they were taking things. It had me feeling uneasy, sort of like witnessing a grave robbery. Speaking of which, that is the most eerie sight of all. Graves popped up out the ground is one of the things I could've spent my entire life not seeing. It's an awful sight.

We saw our friend's houses, their parent's and grandparent's houses completely destroyed. Big ole boats pushed up onto the land, Houses pushed onto the roads. I knew what to expect, my MIL's house and the area surrounding her are the same way but it's always startling to see the damage.

There were a few people out there trying to clean and rebuild but not as many as there were destroyed homes. My guess is they aren't going back, and I guess no one can blame them. It's distressing enough just riding back there much less going back to live. My thoughts and prayers go out to these people. They are the forgotten ones. There have been no spotlights on their plight, no blaring attentions, no small mentions of them in the papers even. To the world, they are uninhabited marshland, scarcely populated and not worth caring about. To me, they are the heart and soul of this country, the good things in life, the survivors and it's a shame to see them left behind.

The world of the unemployed
I really really like not working...too much...my only fault...I can't spend the same money I used to be able to spend so things are slower...I can't just rush out and buy the first impulse item I see and want! Our budget is tighter but not really as tight as I expected to be. I expected it to be TIGHT as in, OMG! I can't live. We're doing ok...comfortable in fact. Everything's taken care of, the bills paid, the animals (including the hubby! LOL!) fed. I think maybe we're saving a bit of money...all that gas I was spending and all those nights out because I was too tired to cook. I've cooked every night this week and it feels good. I feel good, DH feels good, the dogs and the cat LOVE it (snugglebugs!) even my spastic male rat terrier is learning to sit calmly on my lap. It's really sweet.

There's alot to be said for being a domestic housewife! I LOVE it and even don't mind doing all the housework (which is a BIG deal...if you knew me, you'd understand!)

Hurricane blues...
I decided that the last entry just didn't cover what I've been feeling. I've just been so uninspired...how can you be inspired by destruction??? We went to my MIL's last night and the trip there is why my mood is so foul. I always found that drive so peaceful and it sucked because everything is so devastated. I really really need some beauty back in my life. I'm hoping the rain last night washed away the whole mess but it's just a pipe dream. I work, I work then I ride my horse to escape. I cling to that which I know and try to escape when I can. I've been avoiding things because I've been so uninspired. I get so damed down because I haven't photographed anything but insurance pictures in WEEKS. It's just a horrible feeling. I need inspiration and light and beauty and WARM sunshine...I hate winter anyway...the days are too DAMN short.

Brrr, it's cold...
I wanna snuggle up under the covers and sleep all day...My cat has the right idea, he hasn't moved all day...he's been snuggled under the covers, snoring. I'm bored and tired and just down.

I need a nice hot cappachino (sp?) laced with whiskey. And a BIG Chocolate bar.

This feels a bit like Star Trek
Captain's Log...10-31-2005 Today is Halloween and I'm feeling a bit goofy despite the fact that I don't particularly like Halloween because basically, I'm chicken sh*t. I cringe at scary movies and run away from ghoulish objects. But in the spirit of, I'm gonna be a Trekkie today...(not really but for the purposes of my make-believe life I am...)

Day one
ok, so I've come here via my sisters journal, upon reading it I realized I need a spot to vent, let out steam, contemplate life, love, and the pursuit of happiness. I don't have much to say today as I'm a bit tired and frustrated after trying to figure out a password for this journal. I don't even remember what it was...hopefully it's emailed to me. otherwise, well...I'm screwed and this is the last time you'll hear from me. So I'm off to bed to dream happy dreams and get up early to pack many memories into the next day...
