when life gives you lemons...

why is it when something crappy happens, there's 2 or 3 or more crappy/pain-in-the-butt things that happen soon after?  they always comes in huge waves, so that it makes one big happy crappy party.

at least that's the case for me.

then it seems like 5 million different things need to be addressed, fixed, attended to, etc. in addition to the day-to-day i'm supposed to stay on top of, to the point where i could easily get overwhelmed and let the waves overtake me.

when this happens there are 2 things i could do.

1. shut down. a.k.a. ignore all the problems, hide, shopping therapy, lock myself up in a room and never come out until the 2nd coming, turn to alcohol, turn to drugs, turn to some other sort of addiction, run away, relocate and start a new identity...

2. take the bull by the horns and roll with it. a.k.a. trust that God is in control of the situation and seek his wisdom, strength, grace and mercy to help me get through it.

i know option 1 is much easier.  i've even chosen it a few times.  it sure makes the problem(s) disappear, but they never really go away, do they?  eventually it comes back and you're faced with the decision (again) to choose between option 1 and option 2.

so, the past few months have been a doozy.  i really want to keep this blog updated, and not just with photos but with actual written content as well.  but life is taking over and it's taking over now.  there's just been a lot going on (you know that happy crappy party i mentioned, earlier?) that requires a lot of me not being on the computer.  and the times i have to myself have primarily been used to catch up on daily obligations that i'm falling behind on.  as a result, by the time i'm actually "done" for the day, i'm REALLY done.  my brain and my body is maxed out, and my soft bed lures me in before i can even say "facebook."

i'm not abandoning this blog.  once the "dust settles," my goal is to get back on a regular posting schedule, but at this point the posts will seem a bit more sporadic. a little here, a lot there, or none at all for a few weeks.

i just have to tend to a few things...so that the waves don't end up overtaking me.

oh man do I know what you are talking about! it's been one thing after another here, to the point where the new identity option is sounding pretty nice... (don't you take the street where you lived and your middle name to make a new name?) But I know that this too shall pass and once again I won't turn to gummi worms for comfort! =)

I can so so so relate! I keep making new resolutions to keep up with the blogging - but life just keeps getting in the way, and I just need to sleep things off! The new identity thing sounds rather appealing, to be true... :)

Take care, dear Prasti!
