Just one quick thing

I know I have been distinctly un-fun recently.  I am really sad and struggling with a lot of stuff right now.  I had to shake off tears as I walked back to work from lunch, and it wasn't because I had spent my lunch hour reading about the many ways you can set up a budget.  Although that sure didn't help any.

I want to thank you, before I get too deep into my self pity to remember to do it, for being there for me.  For reading my endless rants, believing that I can do better, and letting me know it.  You are appreciated - those of you I know, and those of you I don't know.

It will get better.  I know it will.  And I am going to do things to make it better for myself.  But I will still need to heal and process.  Please be patient with me.  Someday, and hopefully soon, I will start going out on truly horrible dates and have lots of funny stories to tell.  But for the next few weeks, I'm going to probably be wallowing a little bit.  Stick with me.

I don't read your blog for the funny stories, though they're much appreciated. I read to find out more about you and the world you're living. Don't worry about it. It will be great to watch you crawl ouy of this an even better person. The fact that even funnier dating stories will ensue is merely icing on the cake. :)

I have to agree with Mark.

I come to hear more about you and how your are doing. Even in your wallowing you are funny. :)

plus getting to see you come out of this a happier person as a whole is a cool thing.

btw - I've done tons of budgets - ping me if you want help or suggestions.

Uh, hello. there have been times in several of our lives when we have definitely been un-fun, and althought you might have whined about hanging out with us then, you did, and to that we owe you big time....but even if that CAtholic guilt thing didn't kick in for some of us, we'd still do the same for you because we know that you rock.

I used to wish that my life would be free of all the drama and I'd count down to some point in time when I thought it would be. I've finally come to the realization that there will never be NO drama, it will just be different drama.

PS. I'm happy to serve as DD if you want to take Elusive's recommendation of wine and more wine.
