check it, toto

so i wrote this post not too long ago (and, as a sidenote, i would put a link to it on the word "here," all fancy like, but i have neither the smarts nor the energy to find someone with the smarts to do so. please continue.) about appreciating the tempo of my life, regardless of whether it can be described as rapid-fire or glacial. i wrote that then, when my life could be described as the latter, and i was secretly hoping things would pick up. well, here i am to tell you that your mother was RIGHT, ducklings: you must be careful what you wish for. jeeez louiiiise things are crazy right now. seriously, crazy. and if you and i talk on the phone more than once a month, then you know all about it. and if we don't, it's probably better that you don't ask, or care, for that matter. because being my friend right now, sadly, involves nursing me through damn near every day that goes by. i'm not self-reliant right now, i'm not head-held-high right now, i'm not as invested in anyone else's life as i should be right now. i am an attention hog and, unfortunately, it's necessary. so what i'm saying is (again, can i say what i mean in less words? ever? i could probably highlight several "heres" right about now.), friends, just bear with me. it'll all come out in the wash. it always does, and it always will. and i promise that sooner rather than later (please please please) i'll be boring again and i can be better. until then, thanks if you're sticking it out with me. : ) xoxo

you can only appreciate the calm after you've weathered the storm. you don't have to assure us that you'll get through this unscathed; those who really know you wouldn't expect anything less. xoxoxo

Hey yo- it was excellent hanging out with you on Saturday. ;) Let's do that again, yes?

deep breath and good thoughts! hope the storm passes quickly and doesn't leave much damage...

and a new skill...ready?

to add a link to a word in a post, first find the link you want and copy the address.

then go back to your post and highlight the word/words. and then click on the thing at the top that looks like a world with an infinity sign, and a box will pop up. paste your link in that box and say okay--and ta-da! linkage.

:)
