30 Years Together

The Turtles – So Happy Together

Today’s Quote: “It’s what you do for each other that will make you happy or what you do to each other that will make you unhappy.” — Dr. Willard F. Harley, Jr., Love Busters

The secret is, “Take care of each other.” Or as Bill and Ted put it, “Be excellent to one another.”

Today is a special day and I so wanted it to be special. Then why do I feel more depressed than I have in quite a while? I feel as though the entire weight of the world is on my shoulders and I’m getting too tired to carry it. That’s all I’ve got to say about that.

My medication issue has been resolved. I was able to call and make an appointment for my physical for the 10th, which is a couple days before my medicine would have run out. The doctor can either renew it or get me enough to get by until my regular visit on the 20th. Yay, I can go back to taking my full, recommended dosage. I didn’t take my evening dose last night or Sunday night and my blood pressure was way too high this morning. I don’t know if it was because I missed a couple pills or everything else. It will be good to be back on it, one less thing to worry about.

A Greater Insult

A biker walks into a yuppie bar and shouts, “All lawyers are assholes!” He looks around, obviously hoping for a challenge.

“No, I’m an asshole.”
