Daily Reminder # 298
Well, we had another exciting day here in Hancock. No more snow, mercifully, though there wasn't as much melting as I would have wished for. Another crisis was averted... or more accurately, resolved. Yesterday, I realized that my hot water was no longer hot. The shower I had planned to take was not take-able. Still, given the fact that I often struggle with accepting that things I know are real are actually real and not my imagination, I hesitated to call Delaware Opportunities to see if they could help. After all, they had done so much for me. Wasn't it ungrateful to think they might have screwed up my hot water? Maybe it was coincidence. Maybe it was just my imagination. (Really. That's how badly my mother screwed with my head. I don't trust the reality of my experience. When I injured my legs years back and I was in so much pain that I was seeing stars... I questioned whether I wasn't just being a cry baby.) So anyway, this morning, I screwed up my courage and called Del. Opp and the woman who schedules things told me that the furnace people were scheduled (nobody told me) to come and work on my furnace later so she would tell them to check the hot water heater too. They came. They saw. They repaired. All is well in my little house again. I think I can really feel the difference all the new insulation makes. Tara's nose is still running and running but she is eating meals again, though still not her beloved crunchies. I can't tell you how guilty I feel about Tara and the crunchies. It's like I ran over a kid's dog or something. The guilt is terrible. I've asked friend who is an animal communicator to see if she can talk us through it. Sorry. I'm just rambling and whining.
Morning update: Tara Grace returned to crunchies last night. Both girls seem to be eating again. I am relieved. We are almost back to our version of normal. Whew. Thanks for everyone who has asked and sent good vibes Tara's way.
Since I'm mostly complaining, I thought I'd share a message from Neale Donald Walsh and God, just to raise the tone a little.... Since I'm a professional procrastinator, I'm not too fond of this message, but I thought it was good to share it anyway for those more redeemable than I am.
