I know I haven't been around much lately and I am going to do my level best to get in here and update a bit more about what's going on in my world - mostly because I want to lighten my load just a little bit - but I am trying to figure out a way to do so that keeps my negativity out of the universe, because I certainly don't want or need anymore of it. Needless to say, February has been a doozy. Doozy is a funny word, and that's actually not even what I'd like to call it, but I'll just leave it at that.
Sorry for bailing on BotB and 4M this week. Last Wednesday, something happened that I can’t really talk about at the moment. Between said event, trying to make sure Estate expenses are paid, and schedule changes and open enrollment at work, I am under the most stress I’ve been under in quite some time. None of it is even remotely close to being over, but I’ve been forcing myself to stay busy, return calls, mail necessary documents, and any and all manner of navigating wildly different yet equally nerve-wracking situations. This new normal is exhausting, but I’ll be around, and back to posting shortly.
First off, the BotB results should have been posted on the 8th, but I forgot that that fell on a Saturday that I was out of town. And is't really even somewhat of a miracle that this even got posted at all. I stepped into the shower at about 10pm, after my four hour trip home, and promptly managed to get some of the fancy tea tree oil shampoo my sweet Mama gifted me into my eyes. I spoke in tongues. I saw undiscovered colors. My eyes have never felt so fresh or clean! Unfortunately, it didn't clear up my vision. And the shower happened after Ari lost his mind after being let out of his kennel.
Look at this; I'm jumping back in with both feet, and on a week with a pre-determined theme at Monday's Music Moves Me.
The theme for this week comes to us from Robin at Songbird's Crazy World: "In honor of Valentine's Day, we will have love songs. Songs about falling in love, songs about being in love, songs about missing the one you love, even songs about losing love."
January is finally over.
Whew, what a long month. I mean, I'd seen all the memes and everyone talking about how long January was, but it seemed to be going by pretty fast for me. Then about the middle of the month, it all slowed down. Way, way down. It didn't help that I was sick for literally the first three weeks of the month. We also seemed to get all four seasons during this time as well. But now, it is February at last!
