Hey! Sikik Grace Eegeesiak here. Hope this finds you well; sorry for not writing; just haven't really felt like writing in here lately. Been really depressed; my friend Jenny and I got into a huge fight; she is now not speaking to me, doesn't want to have anything to do with me.
I don't really go anywhere; don't have a working vehicle, and my sled's busted again; it's at my friend Pete Equaliq's house, where he is trying to repair it. Broke the one runner clean off when I ran over a huge rock that was sticking out; didn't see it until I was right on top of it, and by then it was too late! O, what a horrid noise it made!
Days are starting to get a little longer, warmer, too (if you can call 20 degrees "warm"; it's better than what we had: temps in the sub-zero readings; too cold for man or even nanuqs!!). Auroras starting to flare up in the sky; aurora season is upon us once again. When I see the auroras dancing in our night sky, I think of Mother and Father; I get sad because I still miss them so much!
Have heard from Jenna Doucet; she's busy with her two sons, and she doesn't go out much either; her health won't allow it at times. I know what she is going through: she and I both have MS, fibromyalgia, and you never know when they are going to act up. Some days are good, others bad.
Today is a good day for me; can see halfway decent, not hurting too badly, MS down to a dull roar. Can just use the cane today, but still feel shaky, so I am taking it easy. Tomorrow may be the day where I use my crutchse or my chair; or maybe just stay in bed altogether if my eyes act up; the double vision makes me dizzy, sick to my stomach; am not worth a hill of beans!
Heard from Louisiana Sandusky: like Jenna, she's busy with her brood. I was sad to hear that she won't be adding any more children to her family, but maybe it's for the best: she and Bill already have 63 children; they have more than enough. I guess she figures that someone else needs a chance; if I know her, if she could, she'd take in all the hurting children of the world; then she'd have 100 children, and I don't know if she could handle that many!! Sixty three is more than enough in my eyes! LOL
Well, it looks like it is going to snow again; sky lowering, turning darker, wind picking up again. No aurora shows tonight. Guess I will make myself some soup, then go to bed, call it a night. Nothing on tv, and have read my books, some more than once. I need some new books, need to get to the grocery store when I get my disability pay on Tuesday; am getting low on food!
Take care and may the spirits bless you! Will write in here another day; hopefully I'll have something more exciting to write about!
~Love, your Inuk friend, Sikik Grace. :)
