Prompt for the Day: “Sacrifice”

The fearful people at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose “Sacrifice” as the word for our artistic work to be centered on.

Where to begin?

Since leaving Colorado, have literally sacrificed my career and sanity!  Am no longer able to find employment in my chosen career field.  Haven’t seen my sanity even lurking in the shadows for years!  Spent a few days locked up in the loony bin after contemplating suicide.  (Do not call a good friend to say your final good byes before your attempt!)

Heard someone pounding on the front door of our house.  Figured some idiot motorist was having car problems, so I answered the door.  Turned out to be an officer from the local police department coming to take me away to the insane asylum.  My friend’s husband had called them while she kept me on the phone.

My body finally gave away my ability to walk permanently shortly after coming home from the nut ward.  So now am a permanently disabled unemployed person who’s mental state is iffy on a good day!  Even my best friend, a cat we had adopted while living in the Chicago-metro area, passed away back in 2010.  At least I never ran my wheelchair tires over his tail!

Please Help Fight Terrible Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

Prompt for the Day: Daily Ritual

My personal daily ritual in blogging begins with a visit to the Daily Post which is from WordPress.  Today they suggested we write about Daily Ritual.  Humorous if you consider my daily ritual begins with a quick jaunt over to their site to inquire what the daily post is for the day!  That’s a case of shameless self promotion, if I ever saw it.  They must have been some of the gossip girls you here about on T.V. all the time.  At least my daily rituals do not include killing a sacrificial victim of some sort!  No blood lost or shed in my daily rituals!

No virgins throats slit high atop of a mountain here.  No mountains, in the first place.  No virgins in this household either.  Guess that puts us shitty out of luck, if that is a required component to the ritual!  Could always sacrifice a neutered cat, considering he is pretty well worthless other wise.  He just eats cat food and makes messes.  Sheds his grey fur all over the house.  When he is not buy shedding, he barfs up the fur he ingested while taking his vigorous baths.

Apparently, the animal likes to be petted, but after you finish petting it, he has to take an instantaneous bath to remove your sent from his fur.  How dare you make his fur stink by putting your filthy hands all over his body?  The cat’s daily ritual includes many vigorous bath sessions of slurping noise and slimming slobber all over his coat of grey fur.  The animal literally drives me nuts!

At least the cat has finally stopped biting me all the time.  He now has started to try to chew on my husband.  Keep telling the stupid animal that we are both bigger than he is, but he does not see it our way.  Considering my husband is over 6 feet tall, you think the four year old animal would have noticed this fact by now!  I wouldn’t hold my breathe on the issue.  He is an extremely dorky cat!
