Gone For A While

First, I’m a bit disappointed that our fundraiser isn’t going better. Perhaps it was the late preparation. Perhaps the few people who don’t like us are putting out Karma vibes. Perhaps I was just expecting more from the nearly 500 email addresses to which the announcement went. Either way, I’m bummed.

Second, with Ari’s arm broken and mom’s arm broken I feel like the house maid. I mean, not only is mom NOT able to help, she also requires extra help. Help for which I lack capacity, to be honest. And, when I express that, she approaches me like a bad daughter and mother…as if I should take after her door mat tendencies and put myself last in my life. Yeah, selfish me wanting to have a hot shower every 3 days.

Third, I am at least 2 weeks behind at school. I’m guessing the professor support will begin to wane as I ask for more, so I’m busting my ass until 2:30 am trying to catch up then getting up early to take care of everyone and everything around here.

So, I’m going to stop writing here for a little bit. I’m guessing I’ll be back after the quarter ends.

Oh, I have been having a bit of fun over at the Boerboel Blog. In my few spare moments per day I’ve been enjoying the glory of that site seeing more hits in its first couple of weeks than I have here in 2 years. Plus, I get to brag about the birth of our new puppy there.

I’ll be around. I do think of you all. I know that bloggers are usually the type to snub the “absence makes the heart grow fonder” anecdote, but I do still hang around even if I don’t comment or post.

  1. that sucks about your mom’s arm… I didnt know she had even broken it.. you just cant catch a break.. Wish we could do more to help you guys out.

  2. You’ve got a lot going on right now. Take a break. Don’t feel guilty. Nobody can MAKE you feel guilty. You are entitled to rest and a shower… and a hug and a prayer and good karma. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Hang in there girl! We miss you too, and I try to check in often as well, even though internet access here in your native Boerboel country is quite dear.

    A new PUPPY?!? My, but I’ve missed a lot! Congratulations, and I’ll be sure to try and check out the site!

  4. Hmmmm…. I donated and it isn’t showing up. Maybe it takes time between making the donation and payment clearance to show? Not sure if that’s the case with anyone else.
