But when the world seems to tip on its axis, ack comes to mind. Along with a couple of other words that do not seem appropriate here.
Sydney says: It's like sometimes you just don't fit in your own box.
Yeah, I get that.

It is so hot in the northeast, they have actually issued a heat warning, so my granddaughters, who came overnight for a riding lesson today, won't be doing that today. Their teacher cancelled, this high heat and humidity is not kind to her horses, even if the kids would go for it.
They were about as digusted as Sydney.
My poor grandson has been up all night after a bad reaction to anesthesia for a simple wisdom tooth removal, and my daughter has been frantic. No one likes to see their child sick.
My mother is fading before my eyes, and from one day to the next looks sicker and more frail.

It's time to take a look at what I can do. A quick run to Walgreen's to see if they have swim goggles, and if that doesn't work, maybe a finagled quick trip to Target.
Wait. I'll call K Mart, it's on the way to the studio.
Time to go through my summer clothes. It's mid July, chances are if I haven't worn it yet, I won't. Chuck it.
When winter comes, the same routine will happen again.
I still have strips to be sewn. There is still a warp on the loom.
The refrigerator needs to be cleaned.
I have a book from the library. A good one.
The girls want to renew their kumihimo skills, if we can find their kumi looms.
There are things to do, life to be lived. Things to be grateful for, and more positive than negative.
Whatever is annoying, I tell myself, "get over it".
Life goes on.
