I think someone should figure out a way to have a lending library for the kindle. I won't just buy every book out there on kindle, I look for the free or really cheap ones. I'm used to borrowing books and returning them, at no cost. Really special books are purchased for keeps, and books on the bargain table at Barnes and Noble are purchased. Of course those are usually read and then given away for others to enjoy. Can't do that with my kindle. It's a whole new thing for me to explore, this kindle. Someone should figure out a cyber lending library. I'm sure there's a way to do it. If anyone cared to try.

Oh, and some of the mental turmoil has abated. Don't get me wrong, there's no difference in most (if not all) of the situations that were churning in my head, but I'm doing a little better with reacting to and processing those situations. I knew from the get-go that it wasn't the situations that were stressing me, but my reaction to them. So, I don't know how or where, but in the last 24 hours I've regained a small bit of my usual inner calm. I'm not completely back to normal, but I can tell I'm coping better, and feeling a little more like myself. shew! :)

Ugh - my shift key is sticking. If I miss a capital letter just pretend - it's a pain, lol. Do you KNOW how hard it is to type in passwords?? You know, the ones which show up as little bullets or asterisks. And they include a variety of lower case, upper case, numbers, and symbols? And you can't see that the shift key didn't work, lol!

Read a great quote today from Rob Reiner. I feel like sharing it, so here it is:

"Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix, but ultimately all you can do is fix yourself. And that's a lot. Because if you can fix yourself it has a ripple effect."

True that.



  1. Love the quote....thanks for sharing it. It resonates well with a lot of stuff I've been exploring lately to do with taking responsibility for our thoughts/emotions. I think the quote is right too about the ripple effect. It can be interesting to see it in action.

    love and hugs xxx

  2. hugggggggg
    I loved the fact that he used the word ripple - since I am one of Paul Wesselman's happy Ripplers! :)

  3. Good quote about fixing yourself.

    And, yes, typing in those passwords can be a pain in the neck.


  4. Glad you liked the quote. I do miss the "good old days" when passwords were 4 numbers or a small word long. Now, for safety, they have to be longer and all manner of weird keystrokes, lol. Drat those hackers!
