First World Problems

Oh, how I faced so many issues already today and realized how quickly they could be resolved.

My stomach was growling this morning.  The cure for that was breakfast.

I was cold.  The cure was to turn up the furnace.

I was sleepy.  So, I stayed in bed longer.

Oh, man – I was thirsty.  I filled my water bottle and drank it down.

It was dark.  I turned on the light.

The dishes were piled on the counter – I stacked them in the dishwasher.

The dog was looking at me longingly for food – I gave her kibble.

I really didn’t want to see the snow falling – I turned away from the window.

David couldn’t find what he wanted for lunch.  Kevin took him to Subway before school.

How many more cures can one possibly find in one day?

First world problems.

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.

  1. I remember reading this quote once: “When you’re expecting everything to go perfectly, even a run in your panty-hose can achieve the dimensions of a tragedy.”
    And so we in the “first world” have many major problems. 🙂
    I really like this one, Stacey.

      Ha ha – oh, Christine that is so very true! Funny how one can lose perspective so easily, eh? When you think you have it bad (me) and I feel sorry for myself, I have to just pause and remember how lucky I really am. Thanks for reading this, Christine.
