Time management. I need to balance my time for work and my passion. So far they haven’t come to a real compromise. Work doesn’t like passion’s face and only wants to punch it to death because passion looks like a stupid hindrance. But passion is where I find my meaning of life.

Also knowing where my life will head to. There are still too many uncertainties ahead, so many decisions to make.

I still miss my family even though I have a very rich life with friends.

Stress and anxiety.

I am very good at planning, being organized, and looking at life logically. But then, usually at night, I get these waves of doubt, fear, and dread about everything in life.

I’d like to be a little more carefree so I can devote energy to actually enjoying myself.

Existential nihilism.

Which notes to wipe my arse on, £5…£10…or £20
Oh & no, we don’t currently have staff for that…

the van needs a starter, and I don’t feel like crawling under it.

In the moment, nothing, except riding out the latest heat wave here. UGH.
In the big picture, health and finances, but… what will be, will be.

I’m in the wrong career, but it looks like that’s about to get better.

The shit health bill in the Senate will be a very big problem for me if it passes, but I don’t think it will.

I’m so lucky, I don’t have any serious issues for myself. My biggest problem is wishing my son was able to earn a living wage so we wouldn’t have to supplement his income.

I also am extremely concerned about my oldest son who suffered a severe stroke 10 years ago and still has multiple health issues.

@YARNLADY Both sons have apparently been blessed with a great mom, and many people can’t say that….

YARNLADY's avatar

^^thank you.

stanleybmanly's avatar

Replaced the starter. moaned and bitched about it all the way.

PullMyFinger's avatar

OK then, @stanleybmanly….good job.

Anyway, I need a ride to Home Depot on Wednesday, and MY starter still won’t….you know…..help with the ‘starting’ thing.

Can you help a brother out….??

stanleybmanly's avatar

uh..ah…um.. is that the doorbell?

PullMyFinger's avatar

God DAMMIT, Stanley !!

(OK….I’m sorry…..go ahead…....I got nowhere else to be right now…..)

stanleybmanly's avatar

I’m sorry, but Wednesday is the day I take disabled orphans to the zoo. I wish I could help you out.

ragingloli's avatar

I assume it is just a coincidence that wednesday is lion feeding day.

stanleybmanly's avatar

I never noticed the coincidence. But I resent your implication that I feed orphans to the lions. I merely deliver the groceries. The zookeepers have specialists who handle the feeding of the animals

Coloma's avatar

It’s easier to lead blind children to the lions den too. Blind orphans are the choice of zookeepers around the world. LOL

ragingloli's avatar

The mute ones are better, though, because they do not scream around when they get mauled.

stanleybmanly's avatar

For a while I had the concession on the old folks homes for weekly “visits” to the zoo. But the codgers are cranky and difficult to corral. It was costing me a fortune in batteries for the cattle prods, and the zookeepers complained incessantly on the tough as shoeleather stringy entrees the lions struggled through, and huge dental bills draining the zoo’s budget.

The biggest problem facing me right now is whether or not the lump on my elder dog’s back is a sebaceous cyst or something more serious. After shaving the area, judging color and temp, palpating it, closely watching his reactions and watching the cyst for a couple of days, I tend to go with sebaceous. It’s about the size of a fifty-cent piece across. Not very deep. It is soft and doesn’t appear to be venous; I see no capillaries through the surface. It causes him no discomfort when I palpate it. It needs to be drained, cleaned and probably sewn back up afterwards with a couple of stitches. I have no local anesthetic in the house right now. So, I’ll be calling on the vet tomorrow.

janbb's avatar

^^ Oh no – not Sam! My Prince had several of those over the years that were deemed benign so hopefully Sam’s is too.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

^^ WOW, lol. I can’t believe you remembered his name! Thank you, Jan.

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

Right just this moment I have cheezies in my teeth.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Espiritus_Corvus guess animal disease isn’t your specialty ~ Oh well, hope it’s nothing serious.

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

Having a shortage of problems.
