OK … I know what time it is. I do hear all of you giving me internal quiet crap for being up and writing a blog. I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ so much for all the bday wishes via Facebook, my blog, email and Twitter. It made my day so much easier. This day reminded me of Christmas. I did not get emotional on either day. I thought about Amanda but kept myself busy enough that she didn’t intrude on my main thoughts, otherwise I would have probably been a mess. I did go to the casino to de-stress. It is there that I can occupy my brain and not think about all the stuff that is coming through my computer. But … you know that song … ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ .. of all places to hear it … yep, at the casino. Usually the place is so noisy with the pinging of slot machines but you can hear the music playing clearly in certain areas. Well, I guess I was in one of those areas. I try to think of other things if I am out in public and hear the song. In my car, I just plain old cry.
BBBB and I went out for dinner. While we were watching the hockey game (woohoo Canucks), a man came by our table. He asked me if I was Carol Todd. He stood there and couldn’t say anything. I knew what he wanted to say but couldn’t. So I just said thank you. He nodded and understood. He explained that he had no right words. I could see that by looking at him. It is those thoughtful moments that give me the ‘warm and fuzzies’. People caring and taking a few moments out of the busy lives to come up and say something (or even not). Amanda was helping me tonight. Just as I got a call from a person at CYMH, the penny machine I was playing hit a bonus and it won about $330.00. Woohoo!! Thank you PS for giving me a great bday present.
That’s it for now. Tired. Oh .. have a meeting with a NDP person next week. 🙂 Great that it follows on the heels of the health minister in Victoria. Good also to hear all sides of the coin. Hey Amanda, we are flipping them all over for you.
Night for now… xoxo
