I'd like to Thank Mette for this Idea on a post. If it weren't for her post yesterday I wouldn't have thought to write this. THANK YOU METTE!
Have you ever done something silly and just had to laugh at yourself? You know, like put the milk in the cupboard and the cereal in the refrigerator. Well I have, and that's what this post is about.
I was driving a 1971 Dodge Dart swinger back in the 1980's, and one of the things you had to do for this car was constantly keep a check on the oil. It somehow used almost as much oil as gas. I had checked the oil on this particular day and discovered I needed about a half of a quart to bring the level up to where it should be. So I jump into the car to go buy the oil. Normally my husband would do this for me, but he was already at work. I drive to the local Fred Meyer store and buy the oil I need. I decided I should go ahead and put it in while in the parking lot. No biggie, how hard can it be to put oil in your engine.? People do it everyday, right!?!
I have the oil the hood is up, and I am going to pour the oil in, but where does it go?
It must go down the same place the dip stick is. I tried pouring the oil in there, but it was way to small an opening to pour without a BIG mess.
I'm thinking Now What? And then I get an Idea.
What if I go and buy a funnel, that would make it a lot easier to pour in without the mess. I go back into the store and buy that funnel. Now I'm feeling pretty good about working out the problem, and coming up with a solution. So, funnel in hand it's back to the car.
I get the hood open and the dip stick out, then I look over to my left and what do you think I see????
I SEE THE OIL CAP ON THE ENGINE WHERE THE OIL REALLY GOES.

Guilt is such an ugly thief
it takes complete control
You think you have it off your back
but it really has it's hold
Whispering all your mistakes
and faults quietly in your ear
Putting you in a state of doubt
in which you really FEAR

Thank You for being
A light in my tunnel
To keep me from falling
although I may stumble
My friends have stood by me
through this stressing time
I am so grateful to have
FRIENDS so FINE!!!
Thank you all for leaving kind comments, support, and hugs.
I am slowly coming back to a semblance of myself. I haven't
been in this pit for years. It somehow caught me unawares this round.

Situational Depression/ My Diagnosis of self
I just realized I haven't posted anything since my "Numb" poem.
I didn't realize I actually felt that way NOW, until recently. I have been hiding in my cave and coming out only occasionally to check on things and then right back to the cave.
I have made an appointment with my Dr. but the soonest I can see her is in October
I know what has brought this on. I have had a significant increase in my pain levels and the flares of fibromyalgia last longer, and come more frequently. That has really affected me emotionally and of course mentally. I've been trying to keep a brave face and pretend all is well with me, and really it is sucking to be me right now. Whine whine whine. That is what I feel like when I say these things, because I know there are others out there who are far worst off then I am.
I just wanted to let everyone know why I haven't posted for awhile. I haven't been writing either.
Not writing is what clued me in to seeing I was in a depression. Situational Depression is what I term it. My situation of health issue's worsening have caused me to be depressed. I will get through and get a handle again (I hope) but it will take time. Unfortunately it's a struggle right now.

WHY do I feel
so numb inside
It's as though
I've somehow died
All I want
Is to stay inside
In my cave
Is where I hide
I struggle daily
just to get up
I've given UP
I am broken
From to many things
So many unspoken
All the hits from life
You see,has taken
Quite a toll on me
I want so badly...
TO BE "FREE"

A Great Big "THANK YOU" to Everyone
who gave an opinion, or suggestion,or
made a comment!!!
The title to this poem has been decided now.
From all of the comments and suggestions,....
The winning title IS...
Young and in Love
Oh, what a thrill
Dancing and laughing
Afraid it's not Real
Along come the storms
Disagreements and strife
You no longer can live
In what's become fights
The love has been buried
It's so badly damaged
By words that were spoken
Causing wounds that need bandaged
"ALL" is in pieces
That once was a whole
There's no looking back
It's time to Go
Nothing is left
So there will be no saving
Enough has been said
Soon we'll be raving!

Today when you come to my blog you'll notice a few changes have been made. These changes were necessary.
Suntana, a.k.a. Carlos, and Chuck, had a few imperfections that he needed to tweak. Of course only he could see these minute imperfections. But, since he is our resident blog designer, and creator I figured I'd humor him. Since he was going to make tweaks and adjustments, I saw my chance to get colored comment boxes at the same time. That's thinking, Right?!!!
Now when you visit you get color to go with your comments. I hope you enjoy the colors!!!
THANKS AGAIN Suntana, er Carlos, ah I mean Chuck!!!

Several days ago I was surfing through my friends blogs reading some of their posts, ones that I have missed, or just haven't had a chance to read yet, when it suddenly came to my attention that I write in one style, and one style only. As my friends all seem to have more than one style of writing, whether it's poetry or other writing. So, I then thought "What if I ask all my friends to help me learn different styles, by leaving their Ideas, tips, tricks, ect.. ways to get started, or anything they think of that will help." And I said to myself, Why "D" what a brilliant
So, now that I have a new modem, and I'm pretty sure the cable is stable now, I will post this, and ANXIOUSLY (in a good way)wait for the responses. I can't wait to know how to get started writing in a different style!
THANK YOU to ALL who stop by!!!! Even if you have no tips ect... Please leave a comment anyway. I love company, and visiting.
