waiting on the front porch

she just stood there on the front porch waiting for her will to come and get her she was packed she had a suitcase full of noble intentions she had a map and a straight face hell bent on reinvention she was learning about please and huge humilities then one day she looked around her and everything up til then was showing and she wondered how did i get here without even knowing where i was going? ~ani difranco

my absence can be explained by the word "ow"

okay. i am here, but just barely.

i got sick with a fever on saturday that magically turned into migraine-from-hell on sunday, which has been off-and-on, (but mostly on) since.

this has made doing anything, really, beyond lying in bed and taking long showers to beat the tension out of my body, almost impossible.

can you believe i don't even own a bottle of advil?
that will be remedied shortly, i can tell you.

you know what's ironic about this whole situation? i am sucking up sleep from everywhere - (got some hidden under your couch for safe-keeping? found that. put some in the medicine cabinet behind the toothpaste? that was gone on sunday) - and yet i'm still tired.


i'm sorry if i've been absent from your blogs lately - i looked at them yesterday but was literally too exhausted to comment. but today i should finish an assignment and then my last class and then be DONE, so i'll be back in full force once my brain fits inside my skull properly.

Oh, honey, I am so sorry to hear that you got sick! If I could package sleep up and send it to you, I most certainly would! Hurrah for school being done today though. That is so wonderful.

I have missed you, but I am glad to hear that you are okay and on the path to recovery.

Love to you.xoxoxoxxo

oh dear, so sorry you have been sick but finding sleep everywhere is likely the best thing to heal yourself and exhaustion takes time to meander off ...

hope you feel like a million dancing snowflakes soon :)

warm hugs!
