Good, but just for a moment

In a bit of good news, I have concluded that the fall did not make me sad. So I can fall all the time, which is a relief because I already do.

I decided it wasn't the fall because I can't really remember it, but I still feel sad.

It's not like I am drowning in despair. I have had fun with relatives this week -- my oldest sister came down from near Boston to take her daughter back to college and her oldest son joined her. My middle sister was here for a bit, too.

Let me say for the record that I am very glad my niece goes to school near me.

I went to the mall with her and my little sister and had fun. I also learned something odd. All the purse manikins in Nordstrom were naked. If I had no clothes, the first thing I'd buy would be underwear, not a purse, but whatever.

But it is like someone tosses me a life preserver that works great for a little while. But as soon as Game of Thrones is over or the last joke is told, I start sinking.

The bad thoughts overwhelm the good ones. I am not sure why, and I don't like it.

I think that sums up life for a lot of us...in varying degrees and different contexts.

Remember: you are loved.

Yes, but my sister is not giving up the TV on Grey's Anatomy night. Ned Stark was in trouble!

I know, though.

you are not alone. There are times when I feel like just calling the Donovan children to come over so they can cheer me up! So at least you have them around to lift you up. And don't start regarding Grey's Anatomy. Your brother will be totally on your side!
