* ♪ I'M WORKING MY WAY BACK...♪ *

Well, I've begun my way back. Back to my "normal" self. (Hey, I hear those snickers out there. I know I'm not "normal," nor would I ever want to be! Ha!)

Eeeeek!!

People tell me I've been through a lot the past couple of months. I really hadn't looked at it that way, especially because of the sorrow and sickness some of my friends have been experiencing lately. But, however, all the worry and tension and grief that I thought I was "handling," hit me when I let my guard down, and it finally took a bit of a toll...

And now...I'm working my way back...to myself. And it feels really good to smile and laugh and be goofy again J

  1. As one who had her own challenges to work through, I know it's not always easy to do that. While someone else's challenges may be "heavier" than ours, what we are going through still matters to us, and it can take us awhile to work through things.

    That said, now that I am back to blogging, I hope you will be around more too. I have missed you.,

    Love and hugs,
    Patti

    Nice to see ya back.

    That photo of you should be the basis for a meme. I can easily imagine that being posted here, there, and everywhere, with a variety of different statements, observations, and complaints superimposed upon it.

    Maybe I'll go to the website 'I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER' and try to get the ball rolling on that.

  6. Welcome back. Experience tells me that we keep going while we have to, and then have a spectacular crash.

  8. That photo looks like you have one giant gold earring, which I soon realised is a doorknob behind you :)

    1. River, this is SO funny, because when I originally posted this, I even made a comment about it not being an earring, but that it was the doorknob!! Here's that old blogpost: https://beckypovich.blogspot.com/2012/11/sigh-of-joy-relief-happiness-disbelief.html#comment-form

  9. You know I'd show up here, just to see my Becky with her doorknob earring. I have looked all over and just can't find a pair in any of the chic stores. Next stop, Lowe's. Yes, it's my favorite photo of the genius creative writer who hasn't been the same since that quirky accident. xoxoxoxo

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
