Mothers Day is on Sunday.

Normally, this is one of the two hardest days of the year for me, the other being August 31st.

I cant stand TV anymore. Reality shows are driving me crazy. That Idol show gets news coverage about every time it's on the air... mainly because the main guy is a complete jerk, and the washed up Pop singer sounds a little bitter. The Disney shows are talking about teen girls being jealous of Tomb Raiders "Double D Body" in shows that are supposed to be appropriate for 5 year old kids. I don't want my 6 year old talking like that!!! Adult TV shows are filled with vulgarity instead of intelligent conversation, and bullets, blood, and bodies rather than anything of substance.

I dont have many friends. I run alone. I work out alone. I shop alone. I live alone. I have no company, night or day. What happened to me? I used to be such a people-person. I don't answer my phone anymore unless it's a call I'm expecting. I walk past people on the street and look down at my feet rather than smile at them like I once did. I dont smile at strangers anymore, and I never entertain the complaints of the person behind me in line at the department store. At one time I took it as a personal challenge to make someone smile if they weren't already. I did that everywhere I went. Where am I now? Am I so engrossed in my life that I dont even see the outside world anymore? What could I possibly be concentrating so hard on?
