It’s Only Temporary

Regular readers will have noticed that I’ve been MIA recently. All I can say about the past few weeks is to quote that old Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times.”

Let’s just say that sometimes, one’s ‘times’ are a little too interesting. Between hurricanes, work, a new gastic ulcer, a broken clothes dryer, and barely avoiding an attack the other day by a very nasty dog, I’ve been a little farmisht and farmutshet lately. And those are just a few of the highlights (lowlights?). Nothing insurmountable, really, and only temporarily life-threatening. Just a bit of a pile-up and a consequent melt-down.

Even Amazons need to rest, recharge and stay out of the fray now and then. So, although I regret that Life, with a capital L, will continue to keep me away from this blog for perhaps another week or two, I do have a vacation coming up. I promise I’ll be back, in my usual fighting trim, as soon as I can. In the meantime, now’s your chance to browse through The Vault and check out a few posts you may not have read yet or revisit a few that you’ve enjoyed in the past. You might also visit a few of the able and articulate bloggers in my blogroll.

In the meantime, stay well, stay out of trouble (except the fun kind), and gird your loins against the upcoming Pinktober onslaught.

See you soon!

  1. Even Amazons need a rest so they can full gird their loins on their return. Be well Kathi!

  2. 🙂 Yes, indeed we do, Sarah! Love to you & Ronnie.

  3. I know you will be back with a vengeance, although I will miss you! Sounds like life is, indeed, interesting.

    Yes, let’s batten down the hatches for the pink attack!

  4. Miss you!! Don’t you hate when life gets in the way of your plans? Important to just take on what you can; do what needs to be done, the rest can wait. We’ll be here when you get back!

  5. Good luck with your “repairs.” Get some rest, get recharged and come back when you’r ready, although I hope we don’t have to wait too long! Hugs.

  6. I know the feeling. Post Masquerade & the passing of Judith left me farmutshet too!
    When’s vacation?

  7. Thanks, everyone. Some of the ‘repairs’ are fun. The ulcer is steadily improving, the house is getting tidied up, the dryer will be getting fixed shortly, the bathroom & kitchen are getting a bit of a facelift, and I have only seven more days till vacation!! Plus, the weather is fantastic. This is a beautiful time of year in southern New England, and I’m planning to focus on the color orange during the month of October. 😉

    Holly, if Judith is who I think she is, I am so very sorry to hear about her passing. Let’s talk soon. xx

  19. Hah. Another path crossed. My daughter is living in Cambridge and teaching high school in Boston's Chinatown. She did her student teaching at Brighton HS, where we trudged through the snow and found the one high-security entrance to visit her classroom.

  20. It’s great to read something that’s both enjoyable and provides pragmatisdc solutions.

  22. Hi, Pat, thanks for stopping by. I know, I hear you all. You want more Matt and Angel. Thinking about it, once I finish my WIP’s, I may revisit these two. I can certainly identify with the Calamity Jane title. Although, it’s not our fault, we’re just too busy and too fast to pay attention to things and well…we sometimes trip.

  23. I’m so glad I found my solution online.

  24. There are different kinds of Radio Controlled AirPlanes. like Dynam Hawksky with its brushless motor is the perfect trainer for beginners, who want an rc plane that they can learn on, but is also capable of impressive stunts The Dynam Super Cub PA-18 is ready to fly with all electronics pre-installed. Based on the Piper PA-18 Super Cub, this, 2.4GHz RC, 4 CH rc plane, looks great in the air and are suitable for beginners..Nitro Air Planes are light weight and durable.

  25. The forum is a brighter place thanks to your posts. Thanks!

  27. Information is power and now I’m a !@#$ing dictator.

  28. Thanks for the shout out. I thought that this show was going to be a little boring, but it actually was very entertaining. I loved the new dances they performed and it was cool seeing the judges favorites. Any of the top four could have won and I'd be satisfied.

  29. Howdy would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a fair price?

    Thanks, I appreciate it!
