Still here

Hi everyone. Yes, I'm still here. I've been reading posts and answering a number of them so I didn't think things could be too bad yet. RL is trying to kill me right now and for the first time in many, many, many years I had thoughts of running away and that shocked the hell out of me. House issues, work issues, tons of projects and no end in sight. Conferences that usually give temporary relief have been canceled left and right. In the midst of this my two furry babies (Lido and Munch) had their second birthday and I had an article published in a garden association publication and it didn't faze me. All I can see is the stuff that isn't working out and still needs to be done. *whimpers*

*squishes you very tightly* I hope and pray things get better for you soon, honey!

Thank you. No matter what I can always depend on you for that special squishy hug.

BTW are you going to DC next year?

*squishes more*


Yep! That is the plan! I hope we can meet up!

I hope you have a room already. I spent part of yesterday scrambling to find something.

Congratulations on the publication, that's wonderful. I'm sorry other things are bringing you down so much that you can't enjoy it.

*hugs* I hope you will feel better soon.

Thank you. *hugs* It's amazing how much just getting it all out helps and of course the responses from flist aren't bad either. *grins*

I'm sorry so many things aren't working out for you and in a way you can't enjoy the goos things in life.

I hope all the worries and workload will get better (managable at the least).

*hugs tightly*

Thank you. I needed that. *hugs*

It's a bit like everything is meant to be done all at once, isn't it? Ick! Just remember to breathe, slowly :)

Congrats on the article!!!
Oct. 27th, 2010 06:06 pm (UTC)
All at once - yes, that's it exactly and more keeps arriving. *stills and tries to breath*

The article is a nice surprise. I had no idea what they planned to do with it and then there it was. Now that I have had time to think about it I'm a bit proud of the whole thing.

*squishes you*

Drop everything and make lists, then make lists of your lists, then make another list of nice things to fit in between the bad things.

Then go have a bath with candles and chocolates and forget all about the lists!

I'm afraid to make a list. It might scare me to know just how many things I have committed myself to.

I tried the chocolate even before leaving work. It helped for a little while.

The secret is to add lots of little things to the lists - like make drink, eat chocolate, read LJ - and then once you've scored them off you feel like you've achieved something :) Then, encouraged by the warm glow of success, you can try something else :)

Hey you, darling *huuugs* Good to hear from you. And congrats on the article!

Hope things get less hectic for you soon!!
Oct. 28th, 2010 01:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you and thank you. I need all the hugs and compliments I can get right now. *hugs*
Oct. 28th, 2010 04:05 pm (UTC)
Well you know you can always count on your LJ peeps to give you tons of hugs and support!! :)

i'm so sorry! i understand how things just go crazy and you're under water before you know it. can i help??
Oct. 28th, 2010 01:16 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I knew you would understand. I just have to wait a few things out and perhaps it won't be as bad as it seems. The control freak in me wants everything figured out now and the shy person in me doesn't want to do certain things the would help speed things along. Does that make sense?
Oct. 28th, 2010 10:58 pm (UTC)
it absolutely does! it's a sucky place to be, but i can relate, i think. i don't have the control/shy thing as much as i have the angry/calm thing. lol. :-) i'm here anytime you want to vent!
Oct. 28th, 2010 06:12 am (UTC)
Want to join me under my rock?

Sometimes RL sucks donkey balls, doesn't it? *huggles*

I usually escape into some story for awhile and forget about it all. Silvan suggested chocolate and a warm bath. I opted for chocolate, an empty house and some mindless TV. It helped until hubbie came back home and got peeved at the kitten's for fighting.
Oct. 30th, 2010 12:30 pm (UTC)
You got published???

Wow! Just wow!
Nov. 1st, 2010 11:37 am (UTC)
Thanks. You still online in the evenings? I'd like to chat again.
Nov. 2nd, 2010 07:41 am (UTC)
Yes I am back on in the evenings. I have returned from Japan and all is back to normal.

I hope to be able to chat soon.
