Work trip to Paris. Hmmm.

My plan for the weekend is to deal with my major life crisis somehow.

Seriously, I feel hybernated 24/7.

I keep asking myself "What's next? What's all this for?" and can't find the answer.

Also about a month ago I had a severe plantar fasciitis to the point that I couldn't step on the right foot. I got treatment, spent about two weeks healing it.

Now more or less ok, but it still bothers me after workouts.

But it's nothing compared to emotional pain that is haunting me.

Sorry about adding more drama.

I like the idea of buying back stuff you sold Tynesider, there's something symbolic in that.

I'm so glad my working week is over, I actually like my job but it has been stressful this week and I have made no plans beyond ten pin bowling tonight. One good thing is that the clouds have lifted so it not so monochrome everywhere.

I'm taking my life back, piece by piece. It's not an overnight job, it's going to take time, but as long as I've got you guys, I can do this.

Enjoy bowling.

I'm absolutely horrible at bowling. My hand does this where it turns 45 degrees before I am about to release, meaning the ball gets a 7 - 10 split.......on the next lane!

You never need to be sorry darling Midnight.....I think there is just a lot happening and I know I am a bit overwhelmed.....I think a lot of our collective energy is heading Gilmer's way right now.....I wish that with all of the love we have we could make a miracle. ♥

Just so glad to see you....it has been a tough month for me. I am almost alright now....struggling to recover from pneumonia. Grateful that Nick is well again....so we do get miracles....not always the ones we choose though....

I wish I could choose right now.
I selfishly want another person i love to be alright.

Suze

Most of the time I'm good.

I'm here in the mountains, and believe it or not, the sun is out (apparently rain from Hurricane Florence won't show up here till Tuesday).

I feel totally relaxed now.

Yes, Venus.

A lot has been happening this summer in SR land with the entire spectrum of life challenges.

Glad you are recovering from pneumonia and Nick is doing better.

It's honestly hard for me to imagine what kind of emotional turmoil you've been through. I remember when my ex used to drink I was so hell scared because I didn't know what to expect. I remember I was pretending to be asleep and my heart was racing like hell (My, oh, my, was it really me?).

Suddenly a person you think you know becomes a monstrous stranger.

And you are in a foreign country.

As for me, as usual all my issues are inside. I can't show my pain without being exposed to comparison "It's not that bad compared to...", I can't demonstrate it as a legit reason to hurt. But it hurts.

Just like I used to tolerate those relationships with my ex waaaay beyond the tolerance limit, now I am tolerating not respecting myself enough to gets my guts together to change my job situation. Because "it's not that bad...".

Yeah, I am selfish too.

((((((( MB )))))))

I'm sorry. I fear I was a little insensitive in my post above. I had assumed that Florence had weakened and hadn't hit land yet.

In fact, she has hit, and there is already loss of life and horrific flooding and damage in the Carolinas.

It was clueless of me to say, "La-de-da--here I sit with sunshine in the mountains--maybe Tuesday I'll get a couple drops of rain! All is well with the world!"

I'm praying for all who are affected by Florence.

@Tynesider, it may or may not surprise you to know that I have "Blue" on my MP3.

I've never seen the video, though! Those women are great dancers! (Except maybe the purple fuzzy one.)

+1 on the replay loop/ear worm with Tynesider, Gilmer and Midnight.

I never understood why they give those horrible hurricanes such lovely names... it just doesn't fit the misery and destruction they cause. I hope it won't get much worse. It makes me feel very lucky to live in an area without any real natural hazards.

Midnight, I tend to think that I don't have a reason to feel as bad about things because others have it even worse. I guess we both know that it's silly to think that way, but I can relate. But you have every right to want the best for yourself and to work for it. Even if it's not THAT bad...

Also Vman, well done for staying strong last night I wanted to post then but I was too tired.

Today I felt physically recovered from that hike and continued renovating my kitchen which I started just before I had the accident. And well, then I had the accident so it had to be postponed. I think I will spend most of my weekend doing that...

Loved seeing so many nice photos again, keep em coming

Hahah I have horrible memories of my mum dancing in her slippers through the living room, the radio on full volume, singing that song with a cigg in her hand I was probably 9 or 10 years old and until I saw that happening I loved the song. My mum's dancing changed that immediately, I was just too embarrassed

Hi Purps! Have fun with the doggo, they are so much fun but so exhausting when they're not trained well!

I’m going to a yoga class this morning, I’m feeling a need to stretch a bit but I don’t feel up to anything too strenuous
