Dear My Friends,

I've been sort of in and out around these parts--I've had a lot going on in RL lately, good and bad. I've been reading but not commenting much, sorry y'all. I'm struggling not to spend my entire days sad-sleeping, and some day soon I will explain why. It's really silly and the kind of thing that would make most folks roll their eyes and mutter, "get over yourself." But to me, it's a biggie.

Good news--I think I'm going to make my BB deadline if I start writing RIGHT NOW. And this grandma thing is really not as horrible as I imagined it would be, especially if you don't change diapers or give bottles. Also, BG is a way better mom than I ever was. Sadly, the situation is not without drama, so I have my fingers crossed she rises above the crap. My best friend of 40 years spent the month with us so I did stuff, and that was fun. She also kept me from totally throwing a shoe these last couple of weeks. I'll post a pic of us if I can find one that makes me look lissome and youthful. ;D

Miss you. And whatever it is, I am sure you'll figure your way through it. Roxy's just don't quit.
And yeah to BB! Get writing girl, time's a wasting.

Thank you!! ♥ It'll all work out, sooner or later. :)

I'm working as we speak...so to speak. :D

*Hugs* I don't like to hear that you're "sad-sleeping". I hope that things improve.

No surprise BG is a good Mom - she had a great teacher <3

I know they will, I've just got to give it time and work on it--I'm not kidding, it's really a *silly* thing, not earth-shaking at all. Mostly embarrassing, really...

*HUGS*!!! Aw, thank you so much! She makes me so happy--I want the same for her! ♥

Aw, bb!
*hugs you tight*
I'm here if you need me. Always!

HA, yeah, diapers and bottles are mom-stuff. I'm done with that! Elf says 'never' to kids so i hope she sticks to it.

I'm glad you had a friend there! That will rock.
*smooches you*

*CLINGS* I know! My friends are the best!!

(Nods) I know about the sad-sleeping. I'm being good about answering the alarm, though some days it's hard.

I'm glad you had a friend there to do fun things with. And I so agree with no diapers, no mom-stuff. Tickles and giggles and making silly hair-dos, that's a gramma's job.

::wafting cheer in your direction:: Does that help?

And yay, BB! There's just the bare, the slimmest, the TIniest possibility I may get my own draft in on time. But I'm not counting the kudos yet.

I really need to force myself out of bed--and keep myself from going to bed as soon as the sun starts to drop.

It helped a *lot* to have my friend here. I'm afraid I was grumpy a lot of times but the good thing about having been friends for 40 plus years, she knows to ignore me. And if I get too bad, she checks me. :)

It does! Ah, the scent of cheer! ;D

omg, I have every body part crossed in hopes you make it!!!!

and speaking of wafting cheer my way...

*huggles* When you're ready to talk, we're here to listen.

hee! Glad you're enjoying being a Grandma. :) Loves ya! ♥
Apr. 20th, 2018 02:28 am (UTC)
I know, love, and it means everything to me. *HUUUUUUUUUUUUGS*

I kinda am, and I didn't forget I owe you pix! He's cute in a damp and drooley way. ;D Looks like his grandpa--sans beard.

I'm sorry to hear you are feeling blue. Sending a hug.

Old friends are the best. They know when you need a hug and when you need a slap.
Apr. 21st, 2018 12:49 am (UTC)
She does know--she's the best. I miss her so much! :(


Thanks, beloved! Oh, and Story is now up to 32,000 words, so I think I've got this!

*hugs* Hun, you don't have to clarify why and how and what, you certainly don't need to worry about us rolling our eyes, we NEVER do that. And I ever catch someone doing it to you they'll get a slap upside the head, simple. Feel better, and I'm glad that despite the drama the Grandma stuff is going well. Many loves and we're here if and when, okay? xx

I know that I can tell you guys things that I wouldn't tell folks offline because everyone here has a real understanding that stuff happens, and it's okay to grieve or curse or kick stuff around and it doesn't make you a bad person for it. I'm more myself here than anywhere else. :)

*massages a little lotion onto your slapping hand*

Apr. 21st, 2018 10:27 am (UTC)
I am too, I understand that completely. Some days I want a nervous breakdown moment but know that the out there people will just huff at me and tell me to wind it in, so I come here and boom, y'all get it, and me.

LOL! I wouldn't encourage me, I'll put rings on round the wrong way, and everything ;) x
Apr. 20th, 2018 09:55 am (UTC)
*big hugs* We're all here if you need us. But yay for lovely Grandma duties and friends.
Apr. 21st, 2018 12:54 am (UTC)
*Thank* you so much!! ♥

I'm really blessed in terms of friends and family. And that includes all my family here. :)
