Break: A (transitive) verb for doing nothing

This seems to have been the longest week of the year. I blame the new MLTL cancer kerfuffle, a particularly dastardly full moon effect and my horrendous work schedule.

Something's gotta give, and it's been my blog. I just need a few days to gather my wits, well what's left of them, and I'll be back.

MLTL, who weathered a colectomy, should have things coming out of the usual places in the usual manner and will likely be coming home soon.

Lord, help us all.

I've taken to jotting down MLTLisms to keep us all amused. As soon as I can form a coherent sentence, I'll be sure to share them. Today he was speaking to his long deceased brother, which any hospice nurse can tell you, is sort of a freaky situation, or, it's the morphine talking. Time will tell.

See you soon, my friends, and hopefully with a new shawl to show off.

I hope your break has the desired effect - or at least your stress level goes down! I enjoyed the music a lot - I'd never listened to Gnarls Barkley before :)

Take your time...life is more important than blogging. See you when you've caught up on your down time.

Nothing like a cancer kerfuffle, to put every thing into a muddle - love the work kerfuffle. Take care my friend and a try and find some relaxation time.

Rudee, I hope all gets better for you. I will be here when you return. Rest and renew yourself. I look forward to seeing the new shawl.

Brenda said...

I can relate to that song, and feel your pain on all the craziness of a life too busy. Hang in there!

Take care of yourself too. I know that's a tall order, but at least try.

Knitty said...

Definitely better to take a break than be the one who breaks.

Good thoughts, prayers and positive energy headed your way. My little squirrel cage here has a powerful generator.

Take care of yourself.

Keeping you all close in my heart.

Hang in there. Dad used to have conversations with long dead relatives in his room. We almost could hear the others speaking.

We will all be here. I see Rudee who is seeing herself coming and going. Hope MLTL does well. What do you know smoking cats. Love ya gal.

My god. Rudee. Have been off the computer for a while and not kept up with my blogs. So very sorry re the (skeery sounding) colon Ca. Whoa. My mother in law also took very ill with SOB and fever at the end of last week. She was taken (finally) to the hospital and put in CCU on dopamine and the works. Next day they did a scan and to the shock of everyone, her liver was full of tumor. She has had a rapid decline. As I type my husb is flying from Hawaii to Mississippi and hoping to see her before she dies. Satting in the low 80's on 100% and barely responsive to accuchecks now. This is going to be a huge loss for him. All the very best to your fil's recovery....and hang in there my friend. xx

You definitely have to prioritize right now. I'll keep sending positive thoughts for you and all.

Hard times. I really appreciate your honesty when writing about MLTL and am impressed and moved by your ability to put kindness above dislike and frustration. You've made me very thoughtful.

Gail said...

Thanks for your well wishes. Hubby seems to be immensely improved. This, they knew when he had his attack and it was scheduled later.

Hope all is well or at least a little kinder for you.
