Where have all the Furby's gone?


I am trying for this period in my life to NOT become a drag for my blog friends, and recently, I am having trouble being very positive. It's almost like the bouts of depression that I have been through in the past, the difference being that i don't FEEL negative, but everything AROUND me brings out negative. I am just completely and utterly exhausted, and after awhile, that gets to sounding pretty whiny and negative, and lets face it----NO ONE loves a complainer. There was a movie or play on Broadway once titled "I'm dancing as fast as I can" and for me, that sums up my life. I am dancing...and i can dance no better, no faster, no more thoroughly, just no more....and until I can be a little more positive, I think it's best if I limit all the wisdom that comes through these fingers and keyboard, as I am afraid that you all will give up on me. This too shall pass...this too shall pass...this too shall pass....


I went out last night, and I really wasn't up to going---but H has to work tonight and all day and evening tomorrow, and I wasn't about to sit in this house all weekend long...so we did go out for awhile, and i had a good time, but the whole time I was there, I wanted to be home, laying down. How's that for exciting? We got home about one...pretty early, but I am tired this morning. But today is a short one at work, home at three...and I intend to be lazy this weekend except for the bike riding I plan to do.


I hope that each of you are having a great weekend, I will be around....and I will especially be commenting on your pages.....:). Out.

hey you...

ya know... i'm feelin like that too. that's pretty much why i didn't post my usual "gazillion" posts for the day.

we both can't just up and quit posting jamie. we are what makes the blog world go 'round!

(ya know grandiosity is NOT one of my traits...i was being sarcastic)

but really... you'll feel better after ya have some down time...which i am sure will be comin your way soon. you deserve it. and i hope so much that you don't have to cancel or postpone your trip! you really need that.

it;ll turn around... it always does.

hang in there.. ok.
i hope you have a good day.

I just want some days where I stay in and do absolutely nothing. But that is nearly impossible.

JYankee said...

everyone has those days or weeks...things'll always get better one way or another...just gotta hang on during the "down troughs". hang in there... no need to be "positive" just for us.. we're always with ya thru thick or thin...

Hi Jamie! It makes me sad that you don't feel comfortable sharing the down days stuff anymore. Do you REALLY think we'd up and leave you?? Heck no!! I mean you guys suffered thru my whine for about three straight months there - but you also get to see me feeling better now (lets hope it lasts)! The whole thing we do here is encourage and support each other, if we only share the fluff, it's pretty hard to do that, and not very therapeutic either. Please know that you can share what's on your heart and mind, I would worry about you more if you WEREN'T feeling down right now - Lord, Jamie you got so much stuff on your plate, both at work and home!! As Soul says, it's gonna turn around, it does, but in the mean time we are here for ya! I am so glad today's a shorter day. You are far more powered up than me if you can get to bed at 1 AM and still make it out the door for work. I used to do that in my youth! :-) Now I don't even know what 1 AM looks like, unless I'm sittin here at the computer with insomnia. You take care up there, and do take it easy this weekend. Please don't let your workplace overload you with more than you can possibly handle. You won't enjoy the money much if it kills ya. It really sounds at this point like your boss is dumping an aweful lot in your lap - not just work, but the worries. That sucks!

I tend to be like you when you I go out. I LONG to be home. I tell myself to stop this and enjoy myself, but I always prefer being home, laying sprawled on my sofa reading, talking to Bing or Liv or both and relaxing.

Plus, I am getting old. I am 49. I can't go out and hit the tinsel anymore the way that I used to. Now, if I don't get my eight hours sleep, I am a person to be contended with.

Hang in there. My mother had a theory about August. She always said that it was so hot that by the end of the month, you felt like a used up dish rag. So...let go. Give in to one small craving, like an oreo. It will make you feel a little wicked and that will help you feel better....

i caught you a fish!
do be do

crap... how could i screw up my own favorite line???
what i meant to say was:

I CAUGHT YOU A DELICIOUS BASS !

simonsays said...

Guys, thanks so much for all the support and kind words that I get from you...you all know i don't think you would leave me because I whine...but damn, that even gets old to ME, just to type the same damned thing over and over...

I will be around, I am just trying to come up with some positives, and really, I have many. MANY. I came home to a clean house today,the laundry done...who could ask for more? H had to work tonight, but he stayed home and helped me out today...And my spirits are higher than this morning, i got a little accomplished today at work...and that helps. I am going to go out and ride out my frustrations on my bike, at least until my legs quit and that could be soon---I am in a little (lot) of pain today...catch you all here later!

simonsays said...

Soul---that line that you love is from Napoleon Dynamite---right? I haven't seen it, but ALL my kids quote it, word for word. I think I'm right...anyway...thanks for the delicious bass----actually, I could go for some bass this evening, but I want the one that is already filet-ed...how the hell do you spell filet with past tense? Oh, well...teehee

simonsays said...

do be do...

why does that make me laugh so much? Nearly as much as "he chokee", "he chokee"...oh oh my...

SOUL: said...

jamie... yes it is from napoleon dynamite ... you must watch that movie. it is the most stupid thing in the world... but if you want to laugh.. you will ! if you don't laugh "with it" you will laugh at it". it is just great.

anyhow... i hope you have your very own furby !!! if not, i will be sure to bring you one, if we ever get this party on the road !!

it never matters what it is that brings a laugh, as long as it does. right? do be do.. i caught you a delicious bass...he chokee!! whatevah.. right?

glad to hear that you rode your bike.. and moreso that you are gonna still be hangin out with us!! cuz i would miss you.

I'll read anything you decide to post. Love your blog!

Amanda said...

Jamie, I hear you, loud and clear. As you know I decided to limit my output too, but for some reason that didn't work the way I hoped it would.

Our sanity comes first. If people have a problem with that, they are always free to find something else. Tough but true.

Portia said...

part of the reason you are inspiring is because you share - vent, whatever - the issues you are dealing with even though none of us can really help you. and you get up every day and go to work in spite of the pain, in spite of the fact that you might make money but nobody can compensate you for the BS you put up with or the number of jobs you do over there, and yet you do it anyway. and you're hilarious! and an awesome mother! you deserve to vent and this is the perfect place for it. i would always rather read whatever's on your mind than wonder where you are or if you are okay. thanks for being so diligent about posting!

I feel the same way this past week. I think it's the impending change in seasons.
