In my head

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change
the courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.

I'm not a religious person per se, but this is a prayer/thought that is important to keep in mind at times like these.

And since there's so much devastation in the world right now, in China and Myanmar and Zimbabwe, here's another that I saw on a bumper sticker: God Bless the Whole World - No Exceptions.

An update on my situation: the first place I put an offer on countered with something way too high and I decided not to pursue it. I had another place I was interested in, and put an offer on that yesterday, but they are concerned about how long it will take my husband to assume our loan, and I don't blame them. It's kind of a black hole right now, and hard to get information from a big corporation. In the meantime, I go to the climbing gym to get some exercise and know almost noone. And I see my husband periodically - I even went out to dinner with him Sat. night - and though it's good, it's also sad in a way. There's much more going on also, and I just want someone, preferably a male, to hold me in his arms and tell me it's all going to be ok, but I don't have that. And so I have to depend on myself. I know I can, but I also feel that evil monster lurking around (depression). Back!!!

I think we all need someone to hold us and saying "it's going to be alright". After awhile, though, you find that feeling inside yourself and wonder why you ever, ever needed someone else to provide it.


However, until then ((((Many hugs))) "It's all going to be ok".

Oh and that's the sign for hugs, not {}

;-)

Thanks Belle!

And Susan, yes, I guess. And so thank you for the big laugh! I'm glad you aren't trying to hug me with {}. !LOL

Susan said...

That'd be a whole different kind of hug there, Nor. I'm not sure if it's possible to uh..in the words of rod stewart "spread my wings" that far..

NoRegrets said...

That would make a great horror movie! Wonder who would want to see it though?

Susan said...

Did you ever see the preview for the movie "teeth"? It was for a {} with teeth deep inside. In my mind it'd be like {VVVVVV}

NoRegrets said...

Or, if it needed braces {^^vv^^}

Never saw that. I did see one night around midnight a show where a woman stuck a speculum up and people could go look inside.

Wow. It took me a while to get the {} references, and now that I get it, I'm kind of nostalgic for when I didn't. Moving on...

Not to be all Susie Sunshine on you, but knowing no-one at the climbing gym means there's lots of new people to meet. Right?

Hang in there. Monsters generally go away if you find a way to cut off their food supply.

I had my first one night stand this weekend with this younger guy who was super sweet and a friend of a friend. Most of it, was us lying around, holding each and talking, and that was exactly perfect. He lives in another town, and I probably wouldn't be able to be in a relationship because of the way we look at the world, but we both were saying how nice that human touch can be with the right person and he was the right person for that.

I'm not pushing you to have a one night stand, I'm just saying it was way better than I thought it would be...For what it was.

NoRegrets said...

Oh, Squirrel, I never thought you'd be Susie Sunshine... And HA about {}. The only thing with meeting new climbing people is that there are SO many criteria - they gotta be safe, interesting, not smelly, don't snore, have good gear, etc.

Churlita, I can understand that. It sounds really nice, especially since it sounds like there was mutual understanding and agreement. Not sure I'd ever be able to have one given the big H thing...

Susan said...

I want a one night stand right now. :( I need to read back in my blog and remember why I swore off sex.

evil-e said...

(((((((((hug))))))))

It's not a real one, nor am I a real man, but maybe it'll hold you for the time being. You just have to ride some of the shitty stuff out to get to the better places.

It always makes me very happy when I see my girl during the week. She gets really down and suffers from depression. It makes me smile that I make her smile.

Why has no one thougt of vodka and it's many healing properties? I guess that's what I'm here for. Ok, I'm on it : tons of mental vodka coming your way - go ahead and get intoxicated :)

NoRegrets said...

Ee - thank you. I will accept such a huge hug in any form...

WNG, with friends like tequila and vodka, you don't need enemies... :-) I like that though - mental vodka!

The CEO said...

{{{NOR}} it'll be fine, really.

NoRegrets said...

Yes, it will, I'm sure. Someday. :-) Thanks for the hug. WAIT! You dont' have a vagina!
