It Says I Am Depressed

Took a quiz over at BlogThings and this is the result. You Are Depressed No doubt about it, you're feeling very down. Maybe you've had a bad day, or maybe you need help. Either way, make sure to take good care of yourself right now. What Mood Are You In? It really blows because I really am feeling very drained. In some respects, I have great things going on but in others, I feel like I am drowning. I really have to gain control of these raging emotions of mine. The worst thing is that not even coffee seems to be helping right now.


It's never safe to be nostalgic about something until you're absolutely certain there's no chance of its coming back. ~Bill Vaughn I was watching TV the other day when I saw this ad for Brotherhood. Michael, one of the lead characters was talking about nostalgia and what it was. His short monologue struck something deep within me - pity I cannot remember exactly what he said. All that remains with me is the emotional effect. I have been feeling off for the past few days but I have been fighting it. Off both physically and emotionally, perhaps due to a variety of reasons. Some of them I can pinpoint, some I can't. When I feel like this though, my emotions tend to overwhelm me and the effects spill outward. I find myself yearning for something. For the good old days, maybe? For that thing that I have always been looking for? For things that I have lost? I don't know. Maybe I just need to drink more coffee.

Telling Myself It's for My Future

I don't remember if I posted anything about this before but I took out an insurance policy that doubles as a retirement plan. I had been looking at life insurance quotes since the start of this year and when I finally found the opportunity to actually get a plan, I didn't hesitate anymore. I pay quarterly so it's not that much of a burden - it shouldn't be if I set aside money every month. I really should do that because every quarter, I tend to have other expenses and forget about the premium. I am telling myself it is for my future AND just in case something happens to me.

Hard Headed

It's frustrating how Jerry can be so hard headed. He dragged all of us to the ER all night 2 weekends ago. He's been on medication for the past weeks. He was fine all that time - he slept well, didn't cough too much. The day he finished his prescription, he started coughing all night again. He said he still felt bad. So I called Borough for an appointment with a pulmonologist. Now he doesn't want to go. " I don't need it. I don't want to go. " Am I missing something here or is dealing with this like hitting my head against a brick wall?

Loving Our Lights

My friends at work have been asking for pictures of the new house but after the move, I couldn't find the cable for the camera so I was not able to immediately upload the pics. I found it a few minutes ago so here are some pics. I decided to post photos of our lights first because I like them the most. The bedroom light The hallway light Kitchen light Living room light Yellow light above the TV
