Padded Walls, A Ravenous Lion & Dory

That is what I need right now.

Just me.  Quiet, serene even, temperature controlled 4 white padded walls all to myself.

I am not crazy...(although I guess that depends on who you ask and when)....but some days, this sounds so delightful not only for my own sanity but for my families sanity as well.

On the exterior all is well. 

On the interior not so much.

I sometimes feel like I have a ravenous lion inside just chewing and clawing on my innards trying it's best to claw it's way out.  And anyone in its path, watch out.  It is THAT time.

Yesterday, not a good day on so many levels.  Tired. Hot. Cranky. Argumentative. Sad.  Pretty much sums it up.

And then I lay there last night tossing and turning going over the day, more sadness, guilt, prayer, so today, tired, not off to a very good start.

And then I think of Dory.

Hey Mr Grumpy Gills
You know what you gotta do when life gets you down?
Just keep swimming
Just keep swimming.....

And that is what I do....

Just keep swimming.


  1. Oh hon, what can I say but 'snap' or perhaps 'ditto'. We both just keep swimming along don't we?

    Keep smiling :-)

    1. Yes, that is what we do. Thanks Fi! You keep smilin too!

  2. {{{hugs}}}

    I don't usually hug ravenous lions, but I don't think you'll bite.

  3. Thanks Jill! I needed that! I won't bite, you, others maybe...LOL.


I *heart* comments!
