No.

Oh, my lovely readers....and commenters....how I adore you all.

I'm sorry I didn't get to respond to everyone...(yet)...

But life....oh, it has SO knocked me down...and then danced the funky chicken on my battered body for good measure.

I am knee-deep in life's crap....too much to handle...and there are not enough hours in the day- -

I'm exhausted...and don't mean to be cryptic.

Sometimes, though...life is simply not fair.

I'll do what I have to do and can't wait to happily and gratefully fall into the comfort and security of this place...once again.

One day at a time...setting my sights on the weekend...

....wait for me!

Lou said...

I can be patient Kathryn. But not for too long :-)

Shawn said...

Hang in there Kathryn.

WannabeVirginia W. said...

hang on tight and don't let go... it will all fall into place xoxo

Gavin said...

I know that feeling. -hugs- But I know you can do it. (: Especially with all us cool peeps around. (;

Picture Imperfect said...

((((Kathryn)))),

Sweetie, I'm thinking of you! I'm sorry things went wrong for you today. Sending you big hugs and lots of chocolate! (and whatever else you desire!!!)

~Penny

Heather said...

One day at a time is all anyone can do. Sorry you had a tough day, hopefully tomorrow will be a bit better.

Gillian said...

I'm in the same place at the mo.

chickasauras_rex said...

Thinking of you Kathryn. Hope things pick up for you real soon.
xo

dailyseeking said...

Your blogs make my day; you are very talented. Get better; life only moves forward.

Runnergirl said...

Hi Kathryn - your priority is to sorting things out for yourself and kids, not us readers!! (We're probably more patient than the kids anyway!!!)

Hope it all works itself out soon.

nashashibi said...

I'm in a strange mood too, check out my latest post i think most people are going through a phase

BlackLOG said...

It's always darkest before the dawn. Take what ever time you need, you deserve it....Don't worry no one will be deserting you and if they do I will send McG round. A couple of Hours with him on there chest and they will be begging for you to let them back in...

susan F said...

(((Kathy)))

book*addict said...

Like everyone has been saying don't worry about us..although we will miss you greatly. But as long as you'll be back, then we'll be ok.
Sending you a gift basket of the best hugs and kisses on this planet (all from my daughter who is the QUEEN of such things).
From my all-time favorite inspirational movie, Meet the Robinsons, KEEP MOVING FORWARD!! (yes, I know, it's a cartoon, but it's still pretty great!)

Spot said...

I miss your blogs and comments! But we'll all still be here when you get back. =]

♥Spot

lifelove'n'wine said...

I miss you muchly, but will always wait for you! Here's hoping that life eases up on you very soon!

Lauren said...

Hey there! I definitely know where you're coming from. I send you all the patience, hope and mental faculties I can spare. If it helps, life goes in waves and you never stay stuck in shit forever. I roll my eyes when my therapist says it but when I'm really stressing, it helps. Hang in there! Take some time to breathe. You will make it through.

Tinkerschnitzel said...

I'm stuck there too, so don't feel bad about it. Kiddos and the daily crap of life are more important. :)

MJ said...

Dear Kathryn,
How sweet you are to think of us, however we are not your top priority.
Sending you lots of strength and patience - for it is but a trial that you will over come.

Gingerella said...

Sometimes it all just hits at once, doesn't it? Keep wading through it, it'll get shallower eventually. Hang in there!

ValleyWriter said...

Keeping you in my thoughts.

Dreamfarm Girl said...

Ditto to all the above! Take care.

Mark Price said...

See you then on another day.

JD at I Do Things said...

I'm so sorry, sweetie. Take all the time you need. We'll still be here.

Cynica Sarcastamos said...

Kick butt and take names later. I'm with ya!

"So if you wake up with the sunrise,
and all your dreams are still as new,
and happiness is what you need so bad, girl,
the answer lies with you."

Straight Guy said...

Keep the model sustainable. You have to live life before you can blog about it.

Take as much time as you need. No one is going anywhere. Not me, anyway.

Tina said...

Loyalty is my watchword. I'm not going anywhere.

Loredana said...

We'll wait, we'll wait but take longer than the weekend and you'll be deleted and forgotten forever
;-)

hee hee hee

Clandestiny said...

Kathryn, I can only tell you the truth. Those that want to be here will still be here no matter how long you are away and those that don't won't be. But that's ok. If someone doesn't really want to be here wouldn't you want to say "thanks for what you gave and I hope you find what you're looking for, go with love?" I for one will be here when you return.

I do wish I knew what it is that's hurting you so right now in the hopes that I could help somehow but you must do what you feel is best for you. If there is anything I can do to help please let me know! Until then I will keep you in my thoughts and send love your way.

Lou said...

Hope everything's OK and 'see ya' soon. Lou

Oddyoddyo13 said...

Don't worry Kathryn; things never stay bad. They'll pick up, and you'll be making us all need a change of pants real soon.

Jen said...

Sorry life has gotten you down. Your faithful followers will be here when you get back.

Wendy Blum said...

Hey, Kathryn, I have an award for you at my "place" lol.

Lily Johnson said...

You are a survivor dear.Take it easy.

Sports15 said...

Feel better! Eventually things will turn around...

Alicia said...

Kathryn,
I'm so sorry that you are going through a hard time right now.

They say what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger, but I know that sometimes we are just damn sick and tired of being strong.

But what other choice do we have right? We're women, we're strong by nature.

Whatever you're going through you have lots of people sending positive energy your way and hoping it all turns out well, me included.

Take your time and come back to us when you can.

Collette said...

Oh Honey, take what time you need. We'll be here. I have nothing better to do, right? LOL! Take care of you first. (((HUGS)))

Clandestiny said...

You're not back yet but that's ok. I really hope you're doing well! I was given an award today with instructions to pass it on to other blogs and yours is definitely one that I think deserves it :) You take good care of yourself but when you do get back pop by and grab your award, ok?

Jan said...

I ditto what Collette said...we can wait...take care.

Gay Guy said...

Kathryn,

Hoping very much that things are feeling more hopeful and that you are feeling more like your fabulous self. Let us know.

Isabella said...

I hope it's getting better. Life just happens doesn't it... My thoughts are with you.

Allegria said...

Oh Kathryn--I was worried about you. I wish we could have a good together a cry. Sometimes there are simply not enough tears when we cry alone. Hugs.

Erin@TheLocalsLoveIt said...

Sending you a hug and and a strong margarita.

Tia said...

I'm sorry you are struggling.

carissajaded said...

Kathryn I am missing you and I hope that things are ok in your world! Big Hug!!!

Smileyfreak said...

Heya Kathryn! Hope all is well :) Looking forward to your return

jmberrygirl said...

I'm sorry it's hit you, too. Email me if you would like to comisserate. I could write a whole different book on the events of the last four days! (Besides the novel, which has made me puke already.)

Kathryn said...

Lou: Thank you for your patience! As you know, it's a comfort knowing someone cares whether you return...or not!

Shawn: Thank you! I'm hanging....I'm hanging! I'm freakin' swinging in da breeze!

WannabeVirginiaW: Thanks, sweetie! That's just what I did....hung on with all I had. I know challenges in life are supposed to make us stronger...but YIKES! I'd take "boring" any day!

Gavin: Yeah, you peeps are beyond *cool*....you guys totally RULE. I honestly don't know what I'd do without you.

Kathryn said...

Smoog: Thanks, sweetie. I wish it had only been one day...but it's getting better. Throughout it all, I'm always aware that things can be worse. And I feel truly blessed to have such wonderful people here!

Heather: Yup...put one foot in front of the other. And pour yourself another....just don't do both at the same time! Right?

Gillian: Aw, I'm sorry to hear it. I wonder...is it the time of year, or what? I know a lot of people are sick as well...that sure doesn't help! I hope you're doing better, sweetie. I'm checking in at your place right now...

Kathryn said...

chickasauras_rex: Thank you....I really appreciate the kind thoughts. It means a lot to know ppl are rooting for you when times are tough.

dailyseeking: Thank you so much! That is so nice to hear...it really is! I think we've got a lovely community here in blogville...and I'm so glad we've found each other.

Runnergirl: You are so wise, my dear! And yes...you've definitely got more patience than da boys, since they usually have none. Although, they're getting better.
I think. Maybe not.

nashashibi: Ah. I agree...it seems that many ppl are feeling out of sorts. I'll be glad when things finally settle down...for all of us!

BlackLOG: Thank you...it's been a rough patch. It's getting better, I think...and I'm gleefully happy to be back "home".

susanF: Thanks, Sue! Sending a cyber-hug right back at-cha....

book*addict: Thanks, sweetie. I STILL have not seen that movie. I'm a little behind...but I'm putting the song "Little Wonders" on my iPod right now, as I head over to visit you.

Kathryn said...

Spot: Thanks, honey! And thank you SO MUCH for all that texting! You did an excellent job of keeping me company....it was so lovely to have someone to go back and forth with during all those waiting room hours.
You made the time go by much faster!

lifelove'n'wine: Aw....I missed you too, sweetie! I tend to be a very all-or-nothing kinda gal, so I haven't even been online in days and days. Imagine my surprise (and glee) when I saw 95 comments in my blog inbox!! Now, that's loooove...

Lauren: You are absolutely right, my dear....although, it's very difficult to see the light when you're lying face-down in that tunnel. Your cyber-gift of patience, hope and sanity are greatly appreciated! I need all the sanity I can get, as I don't always have much of my own...

Tinkerschnitzel: Oh, I hope things have improved on your end, sweetie. We all deserve a break, dammit!

MJ: Thanks so much for the wise words of comfort. I DO prioritize....but I love my place...and all of you...you're my comfort...my distraction...my vacation on a screen!

Gingerella: Very well put! Yes, I much prefer wading in the safer, shallow end of the pool....it's not nearly as comfortable when I'm in over my head! Great analogy!

ValleyWriter: Thank you. We're getting there. I'm just so glad to see *any* sign of my boring, *normal* life.

Dreamfarm Girl: Thanks so much. I've missed you guys!

Kathryn said...

Mark Price: Yup...another day. This has probably been the longest in-between postings for me...ever. I didn't like it one bit.

JD at I Do Things: Thanks, sweetie. This was one tough week. I've never been away this long....even when on vacation, I still managed to have posts on auto-post! I feel so out of touch w/o you guys!

Cynica Sarcastamos: Sounds good to me! You've no idea how close your "kick butt" remark is! We're getting there...thanks for the understanding!

Kathryn said...

Straight Guy: Thank you, sweet man. It's unfathomable to me to not be able to talk, read and comment here...and at everyone's place. It's my escape...my therapy...my HOME. I'm completely discombobulated without it...and yet, I'm still not 100% back. Tomorrow (11/18...actually today, for it's after midnight) I shall resume here. I don't want to rush thru any comments or visits! Till tomorrow, all...
Again, thanks so much for the patience. It's meant a lot.

Kathryn said...

Tina: Music to my ears...and I feel exactly the same way, which is why it's so hard to be so absent for even a short while!

Loredana: Groans (mimics knife being thrust into heart dramatically)...that's JUST what I was afraid of!!!!

Clandestiny: That a beautiful, sweet comment! I didn't mean to be so cryptic....and I've explained as best I can above in the post of 11/17. Every now and then, I must face the reality of my son's life-long struggle with autism...and subsequently ours....a parent's work is truly never done and our love is eternal!

Oddyoddyo13: HA! Thank you so much for that laugh....I needed that! I certainly enjoy supplying the laughs...instead of the silence...any day!

Jen: Thanks, sweetie. I can be an unbelievably insecure little thing....and so torn between all the things I love. Thanks for the support!

Kathryn said...

Wendy Blum: Aw, thank you sweetie! How kind of you. I'll be right over-

Lily Johnson: Thank you, honey....I'm trying. We're *all* trying....it's always something, right??

Sports15: Thank you! My son is feeling better, so I am as well. It's just been a roller-coaster ride. Hopefully, all will be back to "normal" soon.

Alicia: I appreciate the comforting words...I really do. This is probably the longest I've ever gone without posting and checking in...and even tho I was doing what I knew I HAD to do, it was unsettling not having my blogbuds to "talk" to! Thanks for cheering me on!

Collette: Aw! Hugs right back at-cha, honey....your kindness means more than you'll ever know!

Clandestiny: Thanks so much, sweetie....I really appreciate your thinking of me! I'm *almost* back to "normal" (whatever that means)...and have commented and thanked you at your place. I'm honored!

Jan: Thank you. It made the stress a little easier to bear knowing that I had people who honestly wanted to hear from me again!

Gay Guy: Thank you, sweet man. Your compliment is gratefully accepted....I just hate being so out of touch with everyone. Things are slowly improving....I think.

Isabella: Yeah. And sometimes, life just plain sucks. Fortunately, it rarely stays the same...which can definitely be a good thing.

Allegria: Aw....yeah, plenty of frustrated, angry tears. Then, trying to put on a brave face for my son. Just another of those times when it sucks being a grownup.

Erin @TheLocalsLoveIt: Thank you! Finally, someone thought to include a cocktail! Now, THAT'S someone who KNOWS ME! Ahhhhhh.....

Tia: Thanks, sweetie. We're getting through it. Little by little. The lovely comments from all of you have really helped.

Kathryn said...

Carissajaded: I've missed you guys too! I'm about 70% back...and just hope life continues to settle back down. I miss "talking" to all of you!

Smileyfreak: Hey! I'm pretty much back....although I've got a LOT of emails to still wade through. But, it's so very nice to be missed!

jmberrygirl: Aw, honey! Are you STILL sick? No...it can't be! I'm heading to your place now...
