Just read a very accurate wisecrack and thought of you.
"I have a mind like a steel trap--and sometimes I have to chew off my leg to get away from it."
Not sure if you mean that's good or bad...............
Anything entering a steel trap gets crushed and mangled............maybe that is what I do.....................maybe that's what I'm doing now as I'm writing...... pretty destructive that - don't think I'm a destructive person. I'd like to think I'm a constructive and good person. Well, I guess we all like to think nice things about ourselves a?
Wolves chew off their limbs when caught in a trap .... strange really - "Canis lupus" - how appropriate!
I think I am doing exactly what you have said...
I guess, if I were a wolf - I would be a Timber Wolf right this minute. I just chewed off one limb to get away from the crushed and mangled ............... have a fighting chance then, instead of being in pain and waiting for the trapper to come finish me off a?
I came home this afternoon after the funeral - and slept for an hour. I've woken up and my heart is trying to jump out of my chest. I wasn't expecting to feel that so this is why I'm writing.
I'm here to say what's in the steel trap - if I can't say stuff here - I can't say it anywhere - nowhere else to say it out loud so ....................... sorry, just been bumped into another thread...
Phone call (actually - it happened yesterday but I couldn't deal with it then!!!!!!!!) - phone call this morning - my house is sold! Why now? My buyers have a buyer....want to complete by end of March. My beautiful house has been on the market since last August - 3 days after it went on the market I had a buyer. They needed to sell their houses to buy mine. Now they have a buyer - everyone's good to go. Oh dear!
I had found a house (with the man I am still in love with and not with!) - I put an offer in on it which was accepted. However, that was when we were together and were planning our future together. Haven't looked at any other houses. Stopped looking until I had a buyer and won't be able to look for a little while except on the www.
Don't really know what to do now.
Don't get me wrong - the house selling is a good thing really - new starts and all that - it's not a home any longer - it's just a very beautiful country house and the ex-husband wants some dosh - fair enough really. Need a new start. Not got a problem with that - that will be a positive move forward. Just...don't know where or how to do it right now! No high drama - just selling a house.
Haven't told anyone about it yet .................... just told the estate agent I would talk to them on Monday to let them know whether to instruct my conveyancing solicitor.
OOPS - chewed off another leg .... that leaves with me 2 now!
It's been a sad day today. Tomorrow will be a happier.
TODAY = DONE
TOMORROW = SOME FUN
you're right - mind like a steel trap!
