So….I’ve been MIA for a few weeks. I’ve been overwhelmed by so many things.
I was so very overwhelmed by your outpouring of support and caring comments and emails. I don’t think I can every properly thank any of you for that. It has meant so much.
I’ve been overwhelmed by the sheer number of posts still left unread in my Google Reader. I’m sure they are all beautifully written and pee-my-pants funny as usual….yet I’ve had no time to read them. I have no idea what is going on with all of my bloggy friends and daily reads, and that makes me feel crappy. And kind of lonely.
I have been overwhelmed by all the work on the house that needed to be done in such a short period of time to be able to sell it. It’s officially been on the market for two weeks now, and we still have stuff to do. It’s like the never-ending makeover!
I’ve been overwhelmed by the return of too many aspects of my PPD, and am dealing as best I can with my change in medication. But I’m so very tired all the time. It’s like I’m being forced to be lazy, if that makes any sense…I don’t like it.
I’ve been overwhelmingly overwhelmed by my 2 year old’s refusal to eat. There have been a few ups and way too many downs. This is the worst rollercoaster ride EVAH! (Hi Sara, Jennifer and Heather…picked this word up from you…hope you don’t mind me using it!)
I’m overwhelmed with guilt for the fact that my wonderful brother and his wife had a beautiful baby boy on July 14th…my first nephew, and this fucking house-selling shit hasn’t allowed us time to make the 3 hour trip to see them. I didn’t even post an announcement or pics or anything on my blog! What kind of a sister/sister-in-law/aunt am I???
All of this made me feel the need to unplug. Completely. I haven’t posted anything. I haven’t read anyone elses posts. I’ve checked my email every few days just to see if there are any emails from our Real Estate Agent….but I’ve only read about 8 emails in the past few weeks, and I rarely reply. I haven’t been trying to be rude….I just need to completely cut off from everything and everyone.
But I feel like I’m coming out of the cloud now. It might take a while before I’m back to almost-daily posts, but for what it’s worth I’m glad to be back.
I apologize to all of my fave bloggers who may have feel like I abandoned them. I promise I will be reading again soon…I may not comment on every post, but I’ll definitely be leaving a few words here and there!
