There are lots of moments inbetween what I do some days that not everyone sees, or what I don't allow people to see, as who wants to hear about the "down times" in a persons life all the time? Sympathy I do not seek, but what I do appreciate always from my family and friends is simply understanding and caring without judgement placed on something that is far from my choice of being.
Between my degenerative disc disease neck pain, whole body pain from the Fibromyalgia, and headaches, there are days I can't even bare as it catches up with me and wears me down. Really truly, "the collapse is a downer", which I find rather depressing when it happens more often then naught.
I was up from 3 am, finally going back to bed at 7:30. Murphy was at my doorstep again as just as I began to drift off before 8 am (I think I emailed the VON SMART gals about 5:00 am to say I wouldn't be at exercise today) when of course the phone rang twice and someone sent me a text. I gave it another go finally going into a bit of a lull then giving up after another phone call to finally getting up around 10:00 am.
Other then attending to the needs of our "Checkerboard Aussies" I didn't get much done other then a pot of Beef Soup for my "Crabby Cabbie's" lunches.
After this was made I went back to bed about 1:00 pm. Who other then my dear Rob called just before I headed off into a slumber, after I had called and told him I was going back to bed. I did manage to sleep until around 3:00 pm, until AGAIN who else by my ROB called and woke me up again !!! Jeez how do you not hurt someone when you love them so much ... not easy some days is it? Ha !
My poor guy was having "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle problems and not such a great day himself. It started with a flat tire after he had been over working Saugeen Shores for a bit, then after while driving a fare, a Rad hose blew, spewing anti-freeze up over the windshield. Oh man ... poor guy had to borrow a screwdriver from someone on the street he was on to give it a temporary fix.
He did come back home up to our mechanics to get the spare tire off and put on another permanent one. We really need to ensure the "safety" of his Customers, as that is a "Number One" priority of the "Crabby Cabbie" !!!
When Rob dropped back home to get a new tire, he had also brought me in the mail, as of course I had still been in bed.
Oh yes, the Slow Cooker Turkey Dinner we had last night was totally awesome, even though it was rather late by the time we had sat down for it.

Can you believe after spending most of my day in bed, which I hate doing no matter how necessary some times, I am still TIRED !!!
Before I "sign off" here, I need to let everyone know how much I care about my Family and Friends, those in my life daily in person or not. I can NOT stress enough how comforting it is to know when you have friends or family who care ....
Speaking of friends, a Facebook Friend of mine posted some info regarding the sending of a Christmas Card to one of our Countryman or woman who is serving on our behalf. I blogged about this last year, and here it is again this year. Remember when doing your Christmas Cards to address just one and send it off to the following address:
