Ms. Cranky-Pants Has Left the Building...

Well, she's on the porch, anyway, with my foot on her ample behind, ready to give her the heave-ho...

It was a rather icky week, I have to tell you. Lots of stuff went on, none of which I'll blah blah blah about, as it will bore you silly (and probably make me cranky again). But it was definitely a crap week. I saw this quote the other day (I've no idea who said/wrote it, so if anyone knows, please tell me)...

"If you looked inside a girl…you would see how much she really cries; you would find so many secrets and lots of lies, but what you’ll see the most is how hard it is to stay strong when nothing is right and everything is wrong."

Melodramatic, I know. Have I mentioned that I'm not generally a drama queen? I'm not... really. But when I read it, I started to cry because it described exactly the way I was feeling. Pitiful, eh? I know everything's not wrong, but sometimes it feels that way, doesn't it?

But I can only be cranky for so long. Then I get on my own damned nerves. And that's where I spent a good part of the weekend. But... tomorrow starts a new week... and a new mood (damn it). Hopefully I'll be able to think of something clever, funny, or interesting to write about... or at least to keep you all from snoring before the end of the post.

Thanks again for checking up on me... you guys are the best. I'll catch up with you all soon... XOXO

Glad to hear it! I've missed you, and I've been a little worried about ya', too.

You never bore me silly. Never.

And I understand all of this so stinking well that I get on my own damned nerves, too.

Big hugs to you, my dear friend. I'm glad the lights are coming back on in your side of the brain. The lights are a little dim on my side!

Hang in there and, when you have sorted it all out, let me know the secret.

That's a great quote-I've felt that way many a time.

Here's to a great week!

I think that if we would only feel happy all the time, there would be something seriously wrong with us.;)
A complete life is only experienced with a plethora of emotions and feelings. We need to feel sad, melodramatic, angry, frustrated, even desperate in order to know when we feel happy and content.;))
Glad you are on your way back to the other end of the scale, my dear friend.;))

That quote perfectly sums up women! Or at least me...and you!

I think I know what would cure you...a trip to So. Illinois!

Come on Diane- what do you say?

dianne said...

Life gets us down sometimes and we just have to deal with it in our own way...we all need some 'time-out'.

Take care dear girl, hope you are feeling happier soon. ♡

I definitely know the feeling behind that quote, melodramatic or not. Just know I'm here, thinking nothing but good thoughts for you.
Much love
xoxo

So nice to meet you, Diane, and nice to know that your downturn is becoming an upswing. Such is our days on the rollercoaster of life, I suppose.

And thanks for the quote. I'll have to print that out and stick it on the refrigerator for my own daughter.
