I hope everyone gets their act together, Ann , and that you are not terribly inconvenienced anylonger.  The climate by you must be damp and cold this time of year.  I hate the thought of you sailing the Irish Sea in a beautiful, pea-green boat.

Hang in there sweetie!
LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A

Thanks guys.

The one thing keeping me going is knowing that eventually, my situation will improve. I feel like I'm hanging on to a yo-yo for dear life, one minute happy and confident, the next anxious and fearful. I'll be glad when it's all over. It's not an ideal situation at the moment but it could be worse - as the duty social worker made clear the other week.

You're right Bear, at least I'm safe, warm and (sorta) secure. The cats too - even if they do think I'm sleeping in the garden! ;D

Hugs,
Ann

I think the feeling of being on a yo yo is pretty common to a lot of us.  My doctor finally told me I should just stay on the wellbutrin because it elevates my mood and makes me able to get out of the house.
I know this is a difficult time for you ....and the kitties.  They are such creatures of routine arent they!!  Ours...lets see its 3PM so he is napping from 3 to 6 and then dinner is at 6. LOL

Hehehee... if he's anything like mine, he wakes up and TELLS you it's dinner time. RIGHT NeeeOW! ;D

It's occurred to me to ask for a little something to keep the depression at bay, but so far I think I'm winning. I used zopiclone for a few nights so I could get some sleep, but I don't like waking up next to it in the morning. ;)

I know I really don't have much to complain about, but the not knowing where I'm going, or when - I'm finding it difficult. I think I'll feel like a new person when I finally find out.

Only thing I can say is that this Wellbutrin makes me feel like I just smoked a whole pack of cigarettes and I'm ready for action!! lol (No wonder it works to stop smoking) But you are the one who can determine if you need an anti depressant or a mood elevator......right?
Yup....he will come here to where I am on the computer and announce its dinner time.  Then he watches Kurt prepare our evening meal. Has another nap and then joins us for some TV before bedtime. He announces its time to get up at 6:30 AM but I put him on snooze until 7:30 or 8.  Then I start the coffee pot and he goes outside with me to get the newspaper.  This is when he gets to sniff the side of the house to check for good scents. Today it was 12 degrees and I refused to stay out with him so I got the paper and went back in the house.  30 seconds later he was trying to get in.

Bear,

Fred is in charge of the wake-up call - that job has always fallen to the youngest in this family. He's always the first at the door in the morning when I get home from the B&B and if he knew how to get out of the house and find the B&B, I'm sure he'd be on the roof outside my window every morning. LOL

How do you put your cat on snooze? I'd love to know that little secret! ;D

Cheers, Bear, thanks for the kitty chat.

Snooze
Buster is a big cat.  He weighs 20 plus pounds.  He intimidates some dogs.
He jumps up on the bed and stands with his front paws on my chest and his face in mine...sniff sniff. So I reach out and push him down and he turns as he goes down and ends up along side of me head facing the foot of the bed.  All our cats have done this not in your face lying in bed.  Sometimes I lie there stroking his back and fall asleep with my hand on him.  He doesnt seem to mind.  But still , this only lasts for a half hour then we repeat it until I am up.

Bear,

I do that to Fred, but as soon as I fall back asleep, he starts tickling my nose again with his paw. That's his preferred method of human waking. If I pull the covers over my face, he sits on my head and kneads the blankets. ::)

All of this makes for some interesting reading.  I know somehow everything will end up for the better, but how is certainly an interesting chapter in the Anne Chronicles.

Dear Ann

In relation to your newest blog entry and your on going living/life situation, I have a mantra for the week, it is simply the number 7, per your request. If I can send the power of 7 from my home here on the southeast coast of Australia to you on the Isle of Mann , hey it's the least I can do. Hang in there. I'm sending you warm, cozy vibes for your own place and a better bed. You and your beloved cats will be in your own home, together, soon.

Ann,

I'm thinking of you and sending warm, positive energy your way - no mean feat considering the snow still lingering at my house.

I hope things work out soon.

I've been wondering how this saga was unfolding.  I can't begin to imagine how stressfull this is on you.

Frankly, the best advice I can offer is this:

Move into #7 and double dare them to force you out!  That'll teach em to mess with our Ann!
