The Dog Is Depressed (and other news)

When it's quiet enough that you can hear the water running through the pipes
is that a good thing? I mean this is what I've been whining for. The silence, the lack of feathered sky and twisting hours. *sigh* The dog's depressed and she's following me around. I can only tell her so many times that this is life. Katy Girl just can't seem to get it. Perhaps the winter's been too long or maybe it's my anger written all over these walls that sadden her. I'm only here for another week and I can't figure out how to fix her. Let alone myself. I asked for someone to grip my life in pressures tense, to hold - and release, to tease my time, I thought stone cradles and salt would clear the hurt or maybe fire could burn it away. The damn dog though,...she copies me. She whispers under her breath like some miserable old grump. God, is that what I sound like? I planned a trip. I wish she could come. At least it gives me something to look forward to. What does she have to look forward to? Someone forgetting to feed her before running out the door, too busy to smile - too tired to run. Who knows. I cried for the stupidest reason today. I hate crying. I hate showing weakness. (Even in front of Katy Girl). Anyway, you ever run in the house? Like to grab the telephone (which I HATE) or maybe to grab a last minute item that you forgot on your way out the door? Well,...you ever do that and smash your itty bitty baby toe on the corner of the wall??? AAGGHH!!! ok. So,...if you haven't - be thankful. That freakin hurts. Specially when you are already so frustrated that gritting teeth and hair pulling were in place. So out it came. I think Katy cried with me. She makes an awful sound. We cried together. I think it felt good. I think we laughed at ourselves after even though I know it's not funny. Being this frustrated cannot be good. Does your head hurt? Does your watch scream? Does anyone else cry once a month just because? Katy looks at me like I have the answers, like the trees grow because of me or something. I'd read her a book but she won't keep her eyes open, she doesn't even want to. *sigh*. Anyway, that's enough complaining out of me. *Peace and thanks for reading, those who have.

This is for Katy Girl. Believe me, she will feel better soon! Just a passing fancy! She had to get it out of her system!
OK, now, I hope you feel better soon. Lots of love and hugs, ME

Does anyone cry once a month for no reason?
Well, I guess we could call it no reason, but I think we become a LOT more sensitive.
And oh YES, I do. Times when I cry at the drop of a hat.

Yes, I've smashed my little toe, and others on the corners of all sorts of things. It does friggen hurt.

Just remember it won't last forever. A few days the sun shall shine again. Till then here's a BIG (((((HUG)))))

SpitFire,

Hey there you. This one breaks my heart. I cry for no dang reason too some days. You just can't help it. Seems as though nothing will ever change and you will be stuck in the funk you are in forever. Don't give up sweetie. It will get better in time. I've missed you around. Drop me a line sometime. You have been read and understood. Take care. ~HUGS~

~Ok so,...it's Sunday now and well, it's quiet again. I need it today. Katy walked with me in the night while it was snowing, we could hear the flakes hit the trees. Obviously I'm not home and well yeah, this place has got trees. Lots of em. Walking at night while it's lightly snowing and oh so quiet can be quite an experience. Ya feel like singing to yourself softly and dragging your feet around in the road to leave trails behind in the snow. I don't know. I think she smiled out there. She may have even had a little zing in her step after a while. Sometimes when it's like that you don't even feel like going home. Oh and my toe seems to be alright now. *sigh*. Ah gee. Normally in that situation I'd just hop around the house cursing and falling to the ground, but I'd be ok. That day all the frustration just came out in tears when I wacked that little thing. Anyway,...I wanted to thank Severn for understanding and Mother Earth for knowing Katy's 'fancy' would pass. Also, I'd like to thank WhiteDove for listening and knowing what that gosh darn feels like and for admitting you cry sometimes too (and for all the listening of me you've been doing lately, you're a kind woman .) LoneWolf, you're right, things will get better, and I'm not giving up, I was just venting. Thanks for listening and understanding so much. I'll try to get a hold of you. And Dopey Dope,...thanks man! Truly. For reading, for being the cheery guy around here, and for sighing with me. *siiighhh*. Whew. Tomorrow's another day eh? *Peace sweet people.

There's something magical about walking at night when all is quiet and the snow is falling. Such peace.

No thanks needed, we all need to vent, we all have crappy days. We just have to keep lookin for the
