IWSG:Stress & Mess


I'm kind of glad August is over, because the last couple weeks have been a little rough. One of the dogs died, we're moving furniture around which means misplaced crap all over until we get something figured out, I got trapped in a car with a friend who seems to like talking about subjects like the coming apocalypse, blah blah blah excuses blah blah blah life blah blah blah. I write so fricking slow. But for the most part, it's going fine in that area.

I just hope nothing too big or exasperating happens in for at least a couple of weeks.

Yikes. Sounds stressful. So sorry about your dog. That is very difficult to handle.

Kate Larkindale said...

I hope things get better over the next couple of weeks. Those little annoyances can pile up on you.

AJ Lauer said...

Send your friend a link to my book - it is about apocalypses and should keep them entertained for a while :)
Hope the chaos sorts itself out soon!
Happy IWSG Day!

@ Kate Larkindale
Just like it's the little things you have to find joy in, you can find stress in them too.

@ AJ Lauer
Hmm, I'll have to check that out sometime.

I hardly wrote or blogged in August. Must be the lazy dog month. I hope September treats you better.

I know August was a fricking horrible month for you. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope Rocket is helping you. I have stuff all over too. I'm switching summer stuff for winter and I'm slower than most.

September is definitely going to be better for us! (((HUGS))) Eva

@ Eva
I wouldn't go as far to say the whole month was horrible, but Poochie dying was painful. Then smaller annoyances were popping up, and it just made things worse.

And Rocket has been helpful. :) said...

Sounds like you could use a vacation. I can't stand a lot of clutter and mess around the house, either. I hope you have a calm September!

Stephen Tremp said...

I love talking apocolyptic stuff. I know a lot of people don;t so I pick and choose my conversations wisely.

M.R. R. said...

@ Lori L. MacLaughlin
I've got a trip planned later in the month to visit a relative, though who knows how that will go. Still, it'll be a chance to get out for a while.

@ Stephen Tremp
Thanks for stopping by.

Losing a pet is a horrible experience--my sympathies. I hope the next month calms down for you.

I'm also glad August is over. Living in Houston has been like living under a broiler. Whether on foot or in my car I tend to head to shade whenever possible. I'm also a football slut (pardon the term) although this season will be a challenge for this grandma. My 7 yr. old will be playing tackle football...first game Sept. 12. Do they make duct tape for grandma's mouths? We also had to put our oldest kitty down in June. Didn't think I was that fond of her but have been weepy every time I think of her. The doggy and other kitty are still in mourning. Sigh...better next month?

Like Stephen I enjoy discussing apocalyptic stuff. I've been hearing some pretty dire predictions of late, but I'm not stocking up on food or water or anything.

The end of August can be pretty much of a drag. I've been kind of in the doldrums lately. I guess it's the end of our vacation tied in with getting closer to the end of another year. Better than the end of the world I suppose.

I sympathize about writing slowly. (And about the other things, including your darling dog.)

Can you say, in your heart, 'Quality is not always quantity'?

...And may I recommend an uncut pepperoni applied vigorously to your apocalyptic friend's head at regular intervals? It might be a diversion, and you can then dice up the pulverized pepperoni and sprinkle it on a pizza. Perferably homemade or, at least, one of the nicer frozen ones that you doctor.

Suzanne Furness said...

I do hope that September is less stressful for you. So sorry about your dog,losing a much loved pet can be tough.

M.R. R. said...

@ Tamara Narayan
Thank you.

@ Terry-Lee Rosing
Let's hope so.

@ Arlee Bird
I can't think of many things worse than the end of the world.

@ Diana Wilder
I could, but I don't think she'd appreciate that. :P But pizza sounds nice. Mmmm.

@ Suzanne Furness
Yes. While I've had time to get used to her absence, I wish she was still alive.

The thing I hate about August being over, it seems Summer has ended. It barely felt like it was even here.
Sorry to hear about the dog. :(

Sheena-kay Graham said...

So sorry about the dog, God Speed dear. I got locked out of the house over the summer and had to wait for another family member to come with the key. Embarrassing to say the least since I was stuck in the walled off back yard.

M.R. R. said...

@ Jeffrey Scott & Sheena-kay Graham
Thanks for stopping by.

Lexa Cain said...

You really have been through a lot. I hope the rest of this month goes better for you. :)

M.R. R. said...

@ Lexa Cain
So far, it's going fine (mostly because not much out of the ordinary is happening). Thanks for thinking of me.
