I have to say that my life and the world around me has been... challenging... of late. Without going into too many personal details that I'm not yet ready to share, suffice it to say that there are many beings, two legged and four legged alike, that have some serious health issues. I have been dealing with one for several months; two others for the past month and I found out about one today which has broken my heart.
You know how you can keep things together until someone asks you sincerely, "How are you?" I was doing fine. A few tears here, a cranky comment there.
Then, tonight while eating a simple pretzel with some dip... not even a hard sourdough type pretzel... I bit into something that wasn't pretzel. I spit it out to see that it was a piece of my tooth. Half of one of my teeth, to be specific. Yes, I broke my tooth on a friggin' pretzel.
That was IT. It was the straw that broke this camel's back.
Life just sucks right now. I'm sorry. It just does.
