Feeling kind of blue

When I put my cards together this morning, I realized that they were both predominantly blue.  Then I thought it was appropriate.  We did our taxes, and had to pay in to State, but will get some money back from Federal.  I just can't imagine how it is that we have to pay in when I take several exemptions and feel like so much of my check is already withheld.  I live in the capital city and many times hate to get involved in the politics unlike my son who wants to be a Senator, but people in WI want to recall our Governor because of the changes he has made; however, I don't want to pay even more in than I already do.  Then when I have been working I have had several patients that have been VERY sick with cancer and dealing with end of life issues which is depressing when the patients and their families are so sweet and then I have also had some demanding and unappreciative patients/families that make you question why I still want to be a nurse and take care of OTHERs.  Then I feel guilty about and sad about it all.  My best friend is dealing with her husband having a pacemaker placed and only having limited time due to his heart function and she is having some coping issues so we are going to try to escape for a Girls Night later this week.  My husband is continuing to deal with all of his cancer pain and we are trying to adjust his "nerve"medication Lyrica to try to help with it.  My daughter is having panic attacks about getting a summer job so she can pay for college next year to the point of giving herself diarrhea and she has lost weight.  My son is turning 16 this coming week and feels he will no longer need me for transportations so he has become very sassy.  So life seems to suck today, hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Lisa I hope tomorrow is a better day for you, and that Lyrica helps your husband with the nerve pain. I am taking it myself and it seems to help along with the codeine. Love your card and that sentiment is just so cute. Thanks for playing along with us at Bearly Mine Challenges.
