A lot can change in a year.
I know this, I accept this.
It is safe to say that my life is much different this year versus last. Don’t worry, I’m not going to subject you all to things that are done, put away and forgotten.
This is a post about how MUCH CHANGES IN ONE WEEK!
Last night, two dear,sweet, wonderful people that I love DEARLY, broke off a 2 year relationship. I ache for them both.
Mary Ellen’s divorce came through on Friday (HALLELUJIA!!!!!!). She is a free woman. I ran around with her to pick up the papers and get her named changed on her paperwork. She deserves every good thing in life.
I am not working anymore. My husband asked me to quit my job. He only did so because he knew it was what I needed. A way out, and he gave it to me. Long story, but I kept waffling, not wanting to let people down, wanting to be stronger, not realizing that I can’t juggle my boys, life, injury and babysitting. I am also a wuss at this job and angry people that I don’t know were beginning to tear me to shreds inside. So, Jon agreed to be the bad guy instead of my wuss-self. He’s lovely.
Here is a hint: If you are enjoying relative peace and quiet while your boys are home and keep hearing the rustle of garbage bags, you just might want to check it out. Chances are, they have mutated into the superhero “Plastic Man”. Just an FYI…James is apparently one step closer to moving to SoHo with Antoine and fulfilling his dream career of being a Gimp Bouncer…
The blog world also changed a lot.
So far, two of the blogs I read have been DELETED. Gone, POOF!
Davie and Betty are nowhere. Davie had a huge blog explosion with family and deleted, but I have no idea where Betty is or why she went. I am also having difficulty finding Little Red Boat. It keeps telling me the URL doesn’t exist. I have a feeling this is a technical problem, though. I doubt a well-read blog of five years would just vanish. Who knows, though?
Two of my reads also went on Hiatus, many of my reads don’t update a lot lately (Yes…it is the pot calling the kettle, “BLACK”).
I blame the summer. There is so much to do! See! Plan! Party! Vacation! For myself, the quiet, “ME” time that I usually have is gone because my boys are here all the time. I am sure that once fall and winter set in, people will return to their blogs with vengeance.
In the summer there just isn’t as much desire or time to write and read. I have to say, though, that subscribing to BLOGLINES (Thanks to Betty, wherever you are!!!!!) has saved me as far as checking my blogs. It is a lot like an email account. You list your blogs and it tells you whenever the blog is updated in any way. I HEART IT!!!!!
Trying to use a computer with this pesky shoulder is also a change. While I am in a situation that I can type and not put stress on my shoulder blade, it is still annoying to “Get in the position” to do so.
I’ll cope and deal, though. That is what you do with change, right??
