I’m back, Maybe.

I’ve not posted in a while. I’ve been too sick and tired and miserable to write anything I’ll let other people read. Most of my writing has been ugly, dark and whiny the last few weeks, and I won’t inflict that on anyone.

The combination of being pregnant, stuck at home (as in no vehicle and no public transit stuck), far away from friends and family, missing them and the city I used to live in, and the Genius Husband working 11 hour days and weekends, combines for a lot of unpleasant emotional breakdown and a lot of frustration.

I’ve come out of the funk a little bit, one new friend has helped, and perhaps some perspective, so I will survive, and maybe even write things I like again.

  1. Hey there… just found your blog, was scanning over it and saw this entry– specifically the part about being stuck at home, far away from loved ones and a husband gone for most of the day. I’ve spent most of the last three years like that (my husband’s in med school), and I *know* how painfully lonely and sad that lifestyle can be. It just sucks. We’re home now with family for the summer, for which I’m eternally grateful, but he still has three more rotations to do this autumn, which means I have three more months this year to enjoy that lonely-bored-stuck feeling. I try to tell myself to meet the challenge head-on, that what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger, blah blah blah, but it’s hard. Goodness, it’s hard.

    Anyway, sorry to blather– I just wanted you to know you’re not alone, and that I hope your situation betters soon. Oh, and congrats on your impending bundle of joy!

    Wishing you much joy and many blessings…
