As is per usual for this week’s Spin Cycle, I procrastinated and waited until the morning it was due to write it and turn it in. This week’s topic is on things you can’t live without. I guess I wouldn’t even get this done if it weren’t for Father Time.
The smart ass in me wants to say that I can’t live without life- and obviously this week’s events clearly have put that in the forefront of my mind.
However, I don’t think Jen quite had that in mind when she thought up this week’s subject so I’ll see how short I can make this list.
While I would manage/or am managing to survive without the following life just wouldn’t be the same if you’re me:
Zach- really this one should be self explanatory. He treats me better than anyone ever has. Loves me more than I believed it was humanly possible to love, and puts up with me when I have psychotic woman moments (which are few and far between).
Horses- God’s original therapist. I don’t need to say more.
My trusty, cast iron skillet- My mother doesn’t have one, and do you know how many meals I’ve cooked since I’ve been here? Two. Dos. That’s it. She was so excited to have me around; then I go and disappoint because cooking in her pots and pans is simply not the same. Plus she keeps different things in her kitchen than do I, so every time I want to cook something I have to go to the grocery store first. Not something that the woman who hates to hook and un-hook her horse trailer really enjoys doing. I am, however, still alive and probably weigh less for it!
The internet- it’s my lifeblood. Ok, well not really. But I do love it. I can shop on it, talk to and keep up with friends with it, and now I can see Zach on it via Skype and the nifty invention known as the web-cam!
A Cell Phone- Maureen covered this one nicely.
A big truck and trailer- obviously I need this so my therapists and I can go places and hang out.
I’m also inclined to add the sun to this list, because I’ve seen it so infrequently lately that I now know, I could never live in Seattle.
What is it that you couldn’t live without? I’d love to know!
