Alright, as you may have noticed, (the few of you that still read this blog) I've been absent from these parts lately. Not entirely though. I still read some of your blogs and comment here and there, but for the most part, my blog has been silent. (except for posting sappy poems and reveling in the Texans' victories -minus last week's debacle!!!) I have been dealing with a lot of inner battles. I'm also trying to grasp the notion that the day after tomorrow I will turn 47 years old. Let that sink in will you?
Yeah, I can't believe it either. That's sooooo close to fifty, that it makes me sick. Really. And perhaps that is why I've been so quiet (in the blog-o-sphere). Aside from the age thing, this past summer I said good-bye to someone that was a very important part of my life and now isn't anymore. You've heard that saying, "Surround yourself with positive people and purge the negative ones out" ? Well, I purged. It was a long time coming and even though it hurt worse than when I had kidney stones, I did it. And I'm better for it. Or I will be. Just as soon as my heart is happy again.
My sister told me I am going through a mid-life crisis. Mid-life. Seriously. What the fuck??? The thing is, I don't feel old and I certainly don't think I look old (God bless my parents' genes) but it's there. My age. And to add insult to injury, I'm single. *GASP* And don't have any children. *GASP* Not even a pet. -Now that's just sad.
Anyway, my married friends never fail to remind me of this and as for my family, well there are a few of them that have formed prayer vigils in the hopes I might find a beloved and miraculously be with child, so I can live happily ever after like them.
But anyway, enough of this. I just wanted to give you some sort of insight as to what's been going on with me lately and also, to welcome this wonderful month. And it will be wonderful because I said so and because I know so.
Hope all of you have had a lovely day and wish you a fantastic rest of the week. Come back, I'll redeem myself, I promise. :)
