Hot Mess = Me

OffendingCurb Yes, I'm a mess! In more ways than one some would say. Let's see, the most important problem I currently have is that I recently broke 2 fingers. Whoever said "Nothing good happens after 2 am" is dead on. I was at a party thrown by one of my co-workers and had a little too much to drink. I left the party to get some food in me, and came across the big bad mean corner (see picture). Sigh.

I really don't remember falling, but I remember lying on the ground saying to the poor guy with me (that I had known for about 6 hours at that point), "Please make sure my dress is down, and I am not flashing Halsted." I have my priorities, people! And he did. He also literally picked me up off the ground. My hand was mangled, but I managed to wait to go get x-rays until the next day. Yeah.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg of my mess. I have quite a bit of personal stuff that happened all Libby around the same time – swine flu (not sure if that's what it really was), dumped, found out ex-husband is getting remarried 2 days from our original date (this in itself was not a big deal until you factor in that I was just dumped!), found out some fun medical things, raging hormones, and car trouble. Then I had to go and break my fingers. At this point, I'm laughing at life saying, "Bring it on!" How much worse can it get, right?

There are some bright patches in my life, but I don't want to jinx it. (*wink wink*) At least I looked cute at the party before my hand became the size of Texas!!

So, needless to say, there is no knitting. I'm lucky if I can get dressed the proper way in the morning! I'm in a better place now, so don't worry about me. I'm channeling my energy into writing a book, which is currently on hold since it hurts to type. 🙂

With that…until next time! Hopefully, there will be some knitting!

Oh, that sucks!! I swear, I have been having a really sucky July myself, so I think it’s something affecting Aquarians. My crappiness just improved, so hopefully yours will soon too. Focus on the “bright patches”!

I hear you on the onslaught of issue. From experience though – don’t ask “the” question. Hopefully the good stuff will start to come.

(hugs) a little sunshine helps the rest of the storm pass a little quicker. glad you made it thru able to view some of the humor. being dumped is no fun, been there, done that (more than i’d like to admit)!
