It’s hard to let go of people – especially if they’re blood. I’ve been in this tug-o-war with wanting to do what’s right and well, letting go and walking away because after a while you just get tired of dealing with pure, unadulterated nonsense in your life.
As therapy has taught me – sometimes you cannot do anything to alter the course of another’s thinking — especially if they’ve built it into their own convenient truth. And when it’s their truth – nothing you can say or do will ever be right.
I’m not sure if getting older has anything to do with it, but I think there must be some chemical released that just makes you ultimately reject utter nonsense. I just don’t have time to deal with it any more and especially when it became vindictive. I’m not allowing anyone to derail my journey back to being the old, fly-by-the-seat-of-his-trousers, happy, go-lucky, silly Bryce.
We learned one very important thing on Saturday during FSU’s 62-7 route of Nevada: Jameis Winston doesn’t get down on himself easily. I must admit, I became anxious and nervous when FSU fell behind. It’s that feeling most Seminole fans have had to deal with the last few years. And it’s not fun.
Winston isn’t like any of our former QBs from the last few years — unlike those, he stepped back into it and made things happen. He wasn’t rattled – he returned to the basics and secured his confidence and then lit it up.
I think it’s safe to say that our running game is back as well with Freeman, Wilder and Williams — it’s just going to get better as the season goes on. And the ‘D’ – which is top-heavy with underclassmen — they’re growing up fast and getting better by the play.
Of course, this was Nevada – an FBS opponent. It’s hard to understand why FSU is playing Nevada, Bethune-Cookman and Idaho this year, but hopefully the last two do not become stumbling blocks for FSU. I’m really hopeful for this year — and of course, I’m hopeful a few other teams we have to play end up ranked in the Top 25 to spruce up our end-of-season resume.
I’m so hooked. David Tennant, whom I love as an actor – especially as the 10th Doctor – has managed to capture the essence of his character DI Alec Hardy and make Doctor Who fans watching wince frequently.
He’s not the funny, go-lucky Doctor — instead, he’s an often arrogant, smug bastard that makes you want to reach into the screen and pop him a good one. And that’s what makes him an outstanding actor because of his ability to transform – completely – his image from previous roles he’s played.
Anyway, the first series is just pitched in eight shows — and it’s captured my attention from the start. It reminded me of AMC’s The Killing … They’ve thrown every wrench they can to keep you from figuring out who killed 11-year-old Danny Latimer, but I think I’ve figured it out — and we’ve only two shows remaining.
I believe Danny’s killer is DS Ellie Miller’s husband and I base that upon a few subtle things he’s said or done in previous shows — and in the upcoming show, his son Tom smashes up his own laptop in an attempt to prevent any data recovery. I don’t want to guess why he’s the killer, but I believe him to be the killer. And we’ll know for sure in two more shows.
Broadchurch doesn’t end — its been announced that they’ll return with a second series and that is pretty exciting! Broadchurch airs on ITV in the UK, but in the US it airs on BBC America. If you have BBC America OnDemand, you can catch up with all the episodes before the final airs.
And of course, there is my sweet Nica. I talked about her condition here and now we’re on this slow-paced recovery. She’s back to her old self, but is still so very thin. Our new vet has shared that older dogs have a hard time putting weight on quickly and because of what she went through — well, this will take a few months even to put on three-to-four pounds.
Those of you with dogs can appreciate why this upsets me. She only weighed just under 10 pounds when she had this dramatic 4.5 pound weight loss; however, she’s eating ‘raw’ food now — scrambled eggs, cottage cheese, boiled chicken and veggies.
She’s no longer lethargic and she’s back to wagging her tail non-stop, carrying around her babies and barking again. I must admit, I cried the first time she barked again. I’m thankful to God and of course my parents and friends who’ve been supportive through this moment in time. Also, thanks to those of you from here who’ve taken the time to email to check up on her! 🙂
I know she won’t be here forever; however, she shouldn’t have to leave earlier than her time because of some incompetent, young and arrogant vet who doesn’t deserve to practice!
I hope everyone is having a great Sunday thus far and that this week will be smooth sailing … I know I have to get back in the habit of scribbling my thoughts down — it helps me debrief at the end of week — and it’s cleansing! 🙂
