The Summer is Ending

I have not been communicating this summer. I have been trying to keep my equilibrium enough to stay on my feet during the days.

I scheduled all the medical exams for myself and the offspring. There were quite a few I anticipated, and some I hadn’t. Those yearly exams and the “I’m old now” exams, were not exactly enjoyable, but knowing all the tests came back normal makes me happy. The unexpected  – 4 wisdom teeth pulled for one offspring, two separate tooth surgeries for another offspring, and a hospital visit, were slightly stressful and quite expensive.

I think it’s a good thing I hadn’t planned any vacation during this summer.

The most traumatic adventure of the summer was the beloved vehicle being rammed on the driver’s side while an offspring chauffeured the human. They had been having a lovely day. They both agree it was a great day prior to the accident. Reminds me of the old saying, “Besides that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?” Both thought the play was divine – though they really hadn’t been to the theater.

When the police arrived on the scene, they asked where the bodies were. They were certain someone had been ejected from the vehicles. Fortunately everyone was wearing a seat belt. Unfortunately, both vehicles were totaled.

The loss of a beloved vehicle is tragic, and it takes time to heal from the loss. However, I did NOT lose a loved one. I am immensely thankful for that.

I think the best message to gain from this summer is – get the best insurance you can, doctor visits and car repairs are expensive, the insurance makes it more bearable.

Take care of yourself and have yearly exams – the earlier something is found, the more likely to have a full recovery. Same thing for cars, get your oil changed, have the service done, keep your tires inflated. The better you care for your vehicle, the longer it will last – unless, of course, it is t-boned. The fact that you just got new tires and your oil changed is kind of ironic when your car gets totaled.

Anyway, I have given up on communicating simply because I have been trying to breathe. BUT summer is coming to an end and I must start doing something other than simply breathing.

Today I started reading blogs again and felt I could write something. Hopefully I will have it all worked out by September.

Tomorrow I am car shopping. Wish me luck!


I love gardening and magical beings. My profile is a garden ready to be created,
