Stuff in the neighborhood

 It is a beautiful Fall morning, here in Wisconsin, USA. The frost burns off quickly, as the sun is still strong.

Johnny Cash Hurt

Hi there, World! It's me, Jane. So, here goes another post, about nothing much. I am learning so much about myself, lately. Honestly, I thought by the time I was this age, ie; ancient, I would've had it all figured out. But, no...

Yesterday I smiled all the way home from work. Um, I had to walk, because my car is still in the shop. I smiled all the way uphill. I have given up people pleasing. Yay, me! I stood up for myself, for once, and I felt okay about it. No more putting myself last, and worrying about what people think. I am not some second class citizen, and I deserve to be respected. I know who I am, and I am comfortable with my priorities. Family comes first! If someone has a problem with that, then it is their problem, not mine.

I smiled, and my heart was light, for the first time in a very long time. Changes, big changes are on the horizon. This last health scare made me think. I guess my body knows when to put on the brakes. Thank you, body! Okay enough of this rambling. Here are some pretty pictures, I took this week.

Here it is, another post, because I am the least consistent blogger in the entire blog universe, probably.

Yesterday I was dizzy, and my blood pressure was 180/131. Yup, stroke level! So, of course I left work, and headed to the emergency room...nope, I drove home, first, to pick up my loving husband. What happened? My fuel pump went out, on a highway, and there I was, crying, dizzy, scared, and alone. Yup! So my Husband tried to start the Jeep, which we do not drive, because it is iffy, and of course it did not start. He walked to me, and I cried... So...I walked home, and my Husband dealt with the car, tow truck, mechanic, and all that, and I waited for him, called a cab, and went to the hospital. Two hours later I arrived, still dizzy, and with elevated blood pressure. Okay, so what now? Not much.

I am home, again. No solid diagnosis. Who cares? I am not dead, and that was the point of all of this. Listen, I NEVER call in sick! I am stressed out, and too old for this job. I feel like I have to make a change. I am scared, and tired, and my blood pressure is not under control. It's time to pack it in!

Okay, now for the pretty pictures! I am a creative person, and no matter what, that will always be.
