in which our heroine loses her grip temporarily

hi everybody -- sorry to be so absent. I'd been whining about being too busy and too stressed in my sporadic posts on this site, and what happened was that it all caught up with me. I had what I suppose is a minor nervous breakdown, inasmuch as I lost my cool and quit my job, and just generally stopped functioning properly for a while.

While in the midst of an insane 4 month run of unceasing work stress, I got engaged, planned to move back to Boston, and bought a house -- and those are just the good things, I'm leaving out the bad things like sick kittykats -- all of which generally turns my life upside down and which I really didn't have time or energy to actually participate in. Which is pretty uncool.

So I quit my job and threw all the cards up into the air. As it turns out, I'm not really quit, since I've agreed to work less than half-time for the next 3 months, in order to keep my big stressful insane project on track for success, since a) there's no one else available, and b) despite copious amounts of specification documentation, apparently I have invaluable project knowledge in my li'l ol' brain. We will decide after the 3 months are up whether or not I still want to quit, but at least I will have some time in which to live my actual life as it's transpiring.

So perhaps in between moving, and fixing up two houses, one to live in and one to sell, and finally living with my fiance for a wacky change of pace, I may be able to find a little time to tell y'all about my lunch at Frontera Grill with spleen, and my dinner at Marigold with C, and this year's thanksgiving extravaganza, and hell, all that great chinese food i was eating in california way back when. Stay tuned.

Oh Yeah !! I did that. Sure felt good afterwards, that's for sure. It was tough picking up all the broken pieces though. I burned my bridges, I didn't go back.

I wish you some peace and clarity. If not today, maybe tomorrow. Hang in there, we're pullin' for you.

I hope the less-insane pace lets you recover your balance.
