Just wanted to let everybody know that I'm not sick and I'm not dead, just processing, I think. For whatever reason, I'm just kind of over tired and in a sort of withdrawal at the moment. I think it's almost over, but not quite. Mostly I'm wandering around in a cyber kingdom slaying dragons and other monsters. Terrible to be this way when there are so many things to be opinionated about, but such is life. Gays will still be struggling to get married an serve their country when I come out of this funk. The people of Iran will still be in foment and their maniac leadership will still be saying crazy things. Republicans will still annoy me. Scare mongering about health care will still be going on. Republicans will continue to oppose Sotomayor not on any real principle other than that she was nominated by a Democrat. I fear there will still be 24/7 speculation about poor Michael Jackson whom even death can't protect from hyperbole and rumor mongering and distorted reporting. And on and on. I will have a lot of pent-up opinions to spew when I come out of my cave.
I did get myself to watch Benjamin Button last night. Suprisingly good. Discovered that if I push my comfortable "new" chair back against the wall it can't rock so much and screwed my courage to the sticking place and sat in it. Getting up was a bit rough but do-able. Yippee!
Tiny movement on the renovations front. Signed and returned the contract from Delaware Oppportunities. One day soon (hopefully) there will be walkthroughs with contractors, bids, and then magical transformations.
There hasn't been much sunshine here but here are a few pictures through my now filthy - we've gone way past dirty - windows.
My apologies for vanishing, for not visiting anybody much, for being in a funk. See you Friday for Wordzzles for sure.
