Therapeutic Thoughts


I got caught up on the Embroidery of the day. 
I went out for Taco Tuesday with my gals, it had been a month or so. I messed up last week, so it was good to get back to correct order of things.  Our $1 tacos have gone up to $1.50, but that's still a pretty sweet deal. 

My S.A.D. lamp arrived. 
I've been feeling in a rut, so I put out on the interwebs, aka FB, for some ideas. I've been in a rut, and more that one person that I care about has talked about being a winter funk the last few days.  I thought I'd put it out there where they could see.  3 or 4 people popped right back and suggested a SAD lamp.  Even my mother in law, who prompted the discussion has one.  She is very ready to get back to Florida with Dad, but they have to make sure of a few things before they can skip town. If they get the OK, I volunteered to help take them down.  But what to do in the mean time? 
Thus the sad lamp. 
I don't actually remember ordering it.  I remember looking at them, researching different perks, and then yesterday it popped up in my email that my lamp was on its way. 
I guess that was a sign that I needed the lamp. 
How big is my funk that I don't remember pushing play on the order?! 

Meanwhile, I saw this gaggle of geese as I left the neighborhood to go get Sam today. 
Something caught my eye.  A white bird!  
What white bird is tootling around with a gaggle of geese? 
 I pondered this as I drove to the school and back. I thought about that whale, the 50 mHz one, who has no one else to talk to? 
He must be so lonely. 

When I got back to the neighborhood, I was so sad for this single white duck (or goose) that was cruising around with these jerky Canadian geese all alone in the world.  In my head, he was lonely and sad, with no one to talk to. But by the time I got back, there were two!  
Well, that got me thinking.  We're not alone. I'm not alone.
Even when we feel really lonely, like in the winter, when we're stuck at home by ourselves, no one to talk to, feeling Sad.  Just know that you're not alone.  Somewhere there's another white goose or duck.
Nope, you're not alone.
