Good morning everyone.
Today has been one source of frustration for me after another.
I have to say, I now have a clearer understanding of those who act out in angry ways who are in poverty stricken situations.
This morning I have encountered such frustration as I’ve ever seen, and when you pick them apart, look at them one by one, they seem trivial, but when you put them all together they snowball, and next thing I know I’m so stressed, and frustrated I just want to break something.
First, when I woke up this morning, I had a message from a friend wanting info on where to go to get psychiatric help. So, I messaged them back both on messenger, and via text, and have yet to hear back from them. I keep my phone turned off at night, so I don’t know if this person got my messages, and is now seeking help, or if they felt alone, ignored, and have retreated.
Next, I went to make some coffee, and ended up with one more mess.
My coffee-pot is on the fritz, and so I’m having to boil water, and pour through the grounds, and this morning I used a container I thought would make that process easier, only to find out that it was cracked, and that would not have been so bad except that I found out about said crack after it was full of the fracken coffee. GRRRR!!!
Then there’s the problem of being so close to the edge financially that I am struggling to keep food in the house.
Living day to day, hand to mouth is starting to get the better of me, and I can say, “I’m taken care of for this minute, and this minute is all there is, but damn it! I’m simply tired of always having to figure out where the very next meal is going to come from.
I’d like just one day to be able to go into my kitchen, make a food selection, fix said food, and sit down to eat with no more thought than it took you to read that sentence.
I know I should be grateful for that which I have, and I am but dang!!!
So, what to do?
Well, first thing was first. I had prayer for the friend I can now not reach.
Then I cleaned up my coffee mess, and finally managed a half pot of coffee.
Then I washed my dishes, had a jello fruit cup, gave thanks, and decided that I did not get into this situation overnight, and I won’t get out of it overnight.
Oh yes, one more thing…
I’m learning to use WordPress on this computer, have not done it since all the updates, so if a few posts come out weird, just be patient, I’m working on it.
Yeah! I needed one more thing to frustrate me this morning.
Well, this is the frazzled, and frustrated Patty, and King Campbell A.K.A Bubba who hardly becomes so saying…
May harmony find you, and blessid be.
