note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling.

I'm... tired.

It's been a long day. My family was definitely under attack today. And I'm exhausted.

My chronic pain has been really bad this past week. I have something called TMJ which makes it hard to chew. So, I'm considering going on a diet of milkshakes and smoothies.

I didn't get much sleep last night due to nightmares about lions eating my head. No joke.

And I was really angry this evening because of everything. Everything was going wrong. Nothing was working out.

I know God is faithful. He's with me.

Now here's to a better day tomorrow! And three cheers for fragmented blog posts that make NO sense! :D


  1. Oh, poor Sam. :( I'll be praying for you, ok? **hugs**

  2. Ah, my dear sweet Sam girl. I'm sorry you're day was so filled with pain. Don't you just hate that? Psalm 103 has helped me a lot. Love you!

  3. Wow, ow! I hope you feel better, pain is not good!
    Have a better tomorrow :)

  4. I'll be praying for you, deary!! I know the feeling of having bad dreams. Last night I dreamed Aragorn was saying to Legolas "Legolas, what do your Elven eyes see?" and he saw Sauron's teeth. It replayed over....and over...and over...Oy. I need some tea.
    ANYWAY, you probably didn't need to hear shall be a better day!
