Worrying About Every Single Thing in the World

with 4 comments


Of all the months in 2008, none got to me more than December. The laundry list of worries seemed to go on for miles, and no matter how hard I tried not to think about them they still kept me up at night. Still, I got through, I survived like those people on Survivor: by eating rats and forming unethical alliances. Er, not really. But I made it, and that’s actually saying a lot. I just hope I never see another December 2008 again…

Did you see the sky
I think it means that we’ve been lost
Maybe one less time is all we need
I can’t really help it if my tongue’s all tied in knots

  1. Chunky words in a white font swirl around my bed at night, too. “Jury duty” isn’t one of them though. It’s more like, “Call your mother”.

  2. Haha, awhh, luckily that crazy month is over and it somehow swallowed january with it. I can’t believe it’s almost february! Scranton is looking for snoooow this week, possibly 6-8 inches! I’m thinking I’m done with snow. I’m ready for warm weather again!

    That happens to me a lot, lots of big white words blaring at me like a spot light. The number has diminished though. Here’s hoping.

  3. Pam: Is “eat less sammiches” one as well? Sometimes I get that one, too.

    Tara: Clifton’s getting snow tomorrow. Boo. I love it (and will probably go take my picture in it as it is happening still), but I’m ready for a break.

  4. My pants don’t fit very well at this time of year. So yes, “eat less sammiches” is in there. 🙂
