Life calls me. My mind is being beckoned to many different places, and Disneyland is not one of them. These are not happy places. My ill father, my weary/sad mother/hero, Little Boy, MRI/tonsilectomy, vet visit for the dog, imminent trip to Oklahoma, college tuition, how to pay for it all. If money were never an issue, life would be much much easier. I would hop on a plane and be with my mother while she goes through this difficult time. I would write a check for several thousand dollars to pay for MRI/tonsilectomy and the vet, and I would pay college tuition so daugher does not have to get a student loan. I would not worry/care if I'm getting a bonus this month.
But life does not work that way. At least not for us.
But, fortunately my blessings far outweigh my "unblessings" and I will count those instead of my dismal checking account balance :)
