So, I successfully dropped Matt off at his new placement. There were positives and negatives to the program, but I did not have much choice. He seems OK though, and like he understands what the world is expecting. It was super hard to say goodbye again. Super. I left Matt & Cal in the middle of the flash floods. It was crazy. Freeways were closed, mud slides, you saw it all on the news, I am sure. Unfortunately my travels took me in the exact line of the storms. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100123/ap_on_re_us/us_stormy_weather I spent the night in Vegas and then into my home, Northern AZ, where there was ice, snow, and sleet - the worst storm in years and I had to follow it? But I made it through. I must have gained 6 pounds in that car ride, so I took the dogs for a long walk today. I fell on the gravel and split my palm wide open. It was deep, and meaty. I thought I was going to pass out. I walked the mile back home with the 3 dogs tethered to the other hand and went to go get stitches. OMG. PAIN. I know this all sounds so negative - so I keep pondering why negative things happen to people over and over. I mean it seems like once one is in that negative sphere, negative things that are totally out of one's mental control happen - like storms or stiches. The only solution I can think of is that once negativity surrounds our aura - it takes over. The only remedy is positivity?
