I Practice Gratitude Except For This One Thing

I just can’t stand the Fall & Winters in Seattle.   Although I’ve lived here for many years & I can’t even afford to move the lack of sun this time of year is awful.    I’ve taken to talking to my Doctor about getting a sun lamp through the VA.   I’ll need it.  

It’s no wonder the Pacific Northwest turns out such sullen types.   And it could be the reason that I favor shows filmed in Miami (like the cancelled show Burn Notice) and Magnum PI.

Out of all the poor choices I’ve made in my life the one I regret the most was returning to the Pacific Northwest!   I’m stuck here for now.   However the day I move not ‘if’  but when someday my new city doesn’t even have to be a sunny locale.   I just want the H*** out of this State.

So for now how I’ll keep my sanity is to work on getting that passport together for  future trips up North, where I hope to make some intelligent, nice friends.   That part has been real difficult.   I would stand a better chance at winning the Publishers Clearinghouse Sweeps.   No idea where you meet nice quality friends who aren’t gorging themselves to death with food as comfort cause the obesity rate here is off the charts!  I’m still plodding along.   First step those math classes to what I hope will be towards an A.A. degree.   Where I hope to transfer OUT of here to anywhere that isn’t the Pacific Northwest.   I don’t know how I do it!   But it sure explains why some people choose to end their lives or delve deep into drug addiction.   Lucky for me my addiction is Barq’s root beer & Little Debbie’s honey buns.   I also pray ALOT!  I’m not ashamed.   It’s whats kept me sane.   

So kids here is how to stay sane when you live in what could only be described like a constant bad scene out of a movie .   Where the majority of adults here are nothing more but little children occupying a grown up body, where the weather totally sucks your soul out through your body & family is just non existent.

1. Read lots

2. Seek refuge in good music preferably of the relaxing kind

3. Watch lots of good movies of whatever your favorite genre might be

4. Pray like there’s no tomorrow cause your life just might depend on it.  I’m not joking here.

5.  Keep busy, occupy your time

If I seem to have forgotten something?  Oh well I’ll put it in the next blog.

Until next time boys & girls.

Be good.  Stay out of trouble.
