Blog on September 2nd
|Mary and Colin here,
I'm here and Colin is with me in spirit for the day.
I've had a rather challenging overnight but I'm better now. I was chatting with a friend, Carlo, about going to Italy for a few weeks or maybe a week. It would be nice to spend some time there. I've not had a chance to visit Italy but I used to think of going to Rome to visit the Pope (John Paul II) when he was alive. Then later I thought of joining a Franciscan group that would go to Assisi to spend a few weeks trying to study something of Francis of Assisi and seeing the sights and all that. I wouldn't mind going to either Rome or Assisi. Some other places in Italy to visit for me would be Venice (and visit Harry's Bar where Hemingway spent time), Padua (where my Lola could be visiting the patron saint there whose name is Anthony), then St Pio's home town of Pietrelcina and then Florence to visit the lovely piazza and see the statue of David, then Genoa where it is near the water where my friend lived for a while and then he moved to another city. I would like to visit a lot of the cities in Italy.
Other places to visit in Europe include Paris and some cities in Spain and some places in other parts of the EU. I would like to visit Ireland the other countries of the UK but it might not be possible due to some political stuff.
I am a bit in need of food so I could go back home to eat something. I had a box of spaghetti and I don't have any sauce but I could make something with the spaghetti - something that I could make up in a pinch. I don't have much oil but there's some peanut oil that my Dad discovered and I saw it has expired in 2012 and he used it this morning to make eggs and he seems to be fine, haha.
I am not happy about having the realtor visit this week. I don't like that the house is so bad and yet I am not sure what I need to do. I guess a few people in my Family don't want me to sell this house.
Then I might have to cancel this realtor visit.
I just saw this article about Depression and beign "too in your head" and that could be true. I hope that the times I get to be out and about will remove from me that idea that I have to cater to what thoughts I have in my mind. I think that people are too introspective and it isn't good. Too much thought will be saddening and it will be alarming your Family.
I have had a few issues with some bitch that is bullying me around and I cannot get rid of her in my thoughts. I don't pay her much attention but it's a difficult thing.
I tweeted about her.
My friend on FB is no longer a FB friend and I am sad about that. I won't chase after people on FB now. I think FB is sick. I wish it would be better.
