I realize that I am very, very sensitive and that I wear my heart on my sleeve. I have been being told this for as long as I can remember so it must be true, right? It is true and not just because I have been brainwashed into thinking it is so but because I live it every day. What I hate though is when I get blindsided. I get my feelings hurt from a totally unexpected source in an unexpected way. Wow, that really bites. I just want to curl up into a ball and stay that way for a week unless someone brings me pizza and fudge then I will get up for those before I huddle up again.

If you don't get why I am the way I am, that is fine, but it is YOUR issue. Don't try to push it off on me. Leave me out of your sordid affairs. If I befuddle you then either as a caring question or just figure it out for yourself. Don't crap on me just because I don't meet your expectations. There I think that sums things up nicely. My feelings are still hurt however but then I guess that's how the ball bounces, right?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well, we had an adventure last night. It was supposed to get down to 47 and I was already chilled to the bone so I asked Steffie about kicking on the heat. Poor Steffie, she clicked a switch and it sounded like the whole central heat and air unit was being destroyed. Then she tried to turn it off and it wouldn't turn off. It just kept blowing, cold air into the already cold house. I was grateful for warm blankies. Steffie was grateful for Pandora because the central heat unit that would not turn off kept clanging around like a one man band on speed. The unit is right by Steffie's bed(just outside, of course)but Pandora helped her to sleep some.

This morning I called our heat & air company with our tale of woe and they said they'd get a guy out her this afternoon. Then I called someone to help me pay for this repair because I have exactly $18 and chump to my name. I am glad that I have people willing to rescue my a**.  The H&A company had someone out here within 2 hours and by the time I got to the back door when I found out he was here(granted I am slow)he already knew what the problem was and called the office to see how much the part would be so he could tell me what the cost would be. I almost fainted. I then called my guardian angel and told them that I wasn't a "cheap date" which made them laugh. I told them the estimate which they thought wasn't too bad all things considered. I like it when guardian angels have such good attitudes. A check was delivered to me. The guy got back from the warehouse with the part and in about 30 minutes everything was fixed and the repair dude was on his way. I am just glad that this part did not decide to go haywire during a winter storm event or on the coldest day of the winter like what happened when our last heat & air unit died. Now, that was fun. It was 19 degrees that night. Woo hoo!!!

I am very lucky that I have people willing to help me when times are hard. I really don't know what I would do otherwise. Well, I do know actually. I would live without heat and air like I have in the past. I am old and more ill now. It would be much harder on me but that is just what I would have to do. This is why I try to live an attitude of gratitude because I am loved and have people willing to help me. I am blessed.

Ciao!

Ardee,

You are one of my favorite people of all time, so I hope that if / when I ever hurt your feelings, you could [gently] let me know. I'm just sayin' because I would never mean to and I would want to apologize. I might be a butthead sometimes, but I do have all the right intentions.

I am so glad your heater is fixed! And I'm glad that if the heater had to go on the fritz, albeit in a very noisy way, it did so on one of the least cold nights. Bless your guardian angel[s] for coming through! YAY!!

(All in all, I think we both are pretty lucky people. You may be luckier than I am, but probably 'cause you're nicer. :D )

Mer, you are way too kind to me. We are both very lucky. I think I got "luckier" mostly because of circumstances. It could have easily been the other way around. I think that life is just a roller coaster and we all have good times and bad times but in the end it balances out.

I assure you that it was not you who hurt my feelings and the person who did really did not mean to do so but I get so tired of "stuff." That is why I just vent sometimes to "let it go."

I am so very lucky about the heater being fixed. It was more money than I could ever come up with on my own that is for sure.

Hugs, Ardee-ann
