Where can I invest in one of those bubbles that human beings who are to afraid to venture outside live in??? I need one.

The world is frightening & danger lurks around every corner. I just don’t really need to be a part of it anymore. A padded, air conditioned bubble will do just fine for lil ole me. Maybe a window for visitors.

My Garr ended up in the hospital Monday.Β The phone rang & my heart just sunk. Every time the phone rings I assume the worst because I am a really positive, upbeat person. But this time I was right. Details aside, it was the scariest thing & a v close call. It’s really opened my eyes to the fact that NOTHING GOOD CAN HAPPEN OUTSIDE.

So I guess I actually need a two person bubble. Cause I can no longer let that man out of my sight. A doggy door, too. Topanga will need access for nap time. I’ll need plenty of outlets – for my cell phone in case of bubble emergencies & a computer to blog.Β Meaning I’ll need a kitchen. & someone to deliver groceries. That should do it, though.

I will also take a matching straight jacket.

    Sorry you had to go through a scary situation. Sometimes I feel that way too. Hope everything is well now. But good food always is a good comfort.

    Sorry you had a scare…we’ve been there too unfortunately (with one of our sons)… very frightening – but you (and he) will recover because God is bigger than everything (I think that was a Veggie Tale?) Be safe sweetie… πŸ™‚
