tooty fruity sky

tooty fruity sky
flying high
kaleidoscope of color
whizzing by

colors draw me
into their spell
soothing my worries
relaxing my shell

focus on the positive
try not to cry
let my mind wander
to the tooty fruity sky

it's friday and my body and mind are yearning for a good long sleep and a day or two in pajamas. so tired!

dad is hanging in there although he has not responded well to the antibiotics prescribed to fight the pneumonia. hopefully the new meds will kick in today today. it looks like he'll spend at least a few more days in the hospital. he seems to have given up but we're hoping he will fight back once the meds start working. i'm sure we have some tough decisions ahead regarding his ability to come home. 

i'm feeling sad and a bit overwhelmed. i'm smart enough to know all the reasons but too tired to push them completely aside. i love working but it's times like these that have me wishing i didn't have to juggle a full-time job and life in general at the same time. 

thanks for all your sweet and encouraging words on my last post! ((hugs)) to all of you sweet friends!

i'm really sorry you and your family are going through this. they're tough times. very draining mostly emotionally. i would prefer physical exhaustion.

i hope your dad will get his fight back. the drugs might be affecting his mood. goodness knows being in the hospital certainly must be. the in between you might have to consider is a difficult decision, especially for your mom. but, it could be ok. i know you are a person with a root in positive thinking, which is a good place from which to start. sending you lots of hugs and positive thoughts. xo, c

What a great picture and poem. It is hard to keep a positive frame of mind, sometime, but you always seem to manage, Julie. I hope your father responds to the medication. In the meantime, snuggle with the pups, wear warm jammies and rest over the weekend.
