A Crappy Week

I’ve had a lot of really crappy stuff happened to me this week (not family), and I really feel like my spirit has been broken in pieces.

I’m going off to regroup and hopefully, with the help of my medications, I’ll be able to make you laugh come next week.

But right now, I just have to get myself back.

Picture 54 borrowed from “hyperbole and a halfwho described most of my life this week. She’s fabulous.

I wish I were in a position to start all over again – in a different place, in a different time…my urge to run away is very strong right now.  However, we know that’s not an option for me, so I’m just going to see if I can repair what’s been taken from my spirit.

I need to decide how to change direction without losing all I have.  Or maybe I need to accept that it can’t be changed for a long time.  Regardless, I need to repair my disappointment.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and that all your dreams come true.

So sorry to hear you had such a poor week. But that's what tomorrow is for - hope it is a better day for you. Hug your pups - they usually help make things feel better.

Oh my sweet Barbara.
I wish I could help you look for yourself. Where can we look?
I bet you are hiding in your heart.
You have a beautiful heart with so much love.
Let me sit beside you, and lets look for "you" together.
We all love you.
Yes, maybe tomorrow, but right now take my paw.
love

Sounds like we have been having the same week. So sorry you are so down. I have felt that urge to run and run and run too.

Wish I had great words of wisdom for you. Just hang on to your dogs, they will pull you through. :)

Oh Barbara, I am so sorry! I know I am not terribly forthcoming on my blogs...but I can relate to the feeling. Those were/are the times I want to "get on a bus to Thunder Bay" as I put it in my (paper, real) diary. I don't know why Thunder Bay but that's what it was.

I send you a virtual hug and I wish I could have you over for coffee. Hope you feel better soon

Hi Barbara, I'm late getting here, but I hope you feel better today. I'll tell you a secret that I left work yesterday because of a 'meltdown' where the doctor I work for saw me and sent me home. We all have those days, and I hope you can find your inner spirit and strength and find your direction. I'm sending you lots of good thoughts and vibes!!

I am sending you big slobbery Dane kisses to makes you feel better.

Bummer you had a bad week. Sorry to hear that! Hopefully the meds will kick in and start doing their thing soon!

I have a funny story--I put in the number of comments on my Awkward Family Pet Photos giveaway blog post into random.org and your comment came up!! So congrats, hopefully the book will cheer you up some! And I swear it came up the very first time I did it, I didn't rig it in any way! You're a lucky lady today. Send me an e-mail at riley.acd@gmail.com with your address and I'll send it to the publisher!
