Overload.


It has been a rough go lately.

And to be honest, that is an understatement.

That has been the major cause in lack of posts.

I have had so many things, mostly unhappy or unpleasant things, consuming my life that I just didn't have the desire, time or energy to write. And definitely not try and write the way I like to write on this blog. 

I thought I would try something to kinda get out of the funk. I think if I just get it all out there, I will feel more genuine to myself. And that always makes me happier. And I think will result in more blogging.

My health is still not better, although it seems to be getting better. For example, I can go hours without pain now. That's good! And I will take what I can. :) But the honest truth is I have been sick since the first week of February. That's three whole months of being sick. And I have been in pain every day since February 28th. 

I had to say goodbye of someone that had been in my life for a year. Ultimately, this was probably for the best. But, it's just difficult to no longer have your best friend, the person you told ALL the things to, the ridiculous things, the funny things, the frustrating things. I miss my best friend. Profoundly.

This semester of grad school has been ridiculous. I have never had such a disorganized class with unrealistic expectations. For example, on a quiz, I answered a questioned based off a direct quote from the book and I still got it wrong. When I presented this to my professor, she still said it was wrong. Apparently, I am supposed to know what in the assigned text is correct and what is incorrect ???? Also, a 30 page study guide for a 20 question quiz? I die. It ends this week. Yippee!!

While on spring break for work my mama graciously took me down to St. George for some sunshine and relaxation because she knew how hard life had been for me. While there, I was informed I would need to find a new place to live within a week or two and be out entirely practically within a month. Goodbye, relaxing vacation. :(

Between grad school, autoimmune failure and work, I had to apartment search. And roommate search. 

Then, between grad school, autoimmune failure and work, I had to start packing and moving furniture {that won't be coming with me}. Frown.


And, finally, throw in there extreme unhappiness being directed towards me from external sources, a police officer showing up at my home looking for me but not telling me what he needed, being summoned to court, my brother-in-law being extremely ill and my grandfather likely to pass away any day ... I just haven't had a lot to say.

And now, I think you might understand why. :)

But, I am still happy. Just exhausted and hoping some relief comes soon.

That stinks like a family of skunks living in a week old tauntaun at the garbage dump in July. Here's hoping the sun breaks through the clouds for you, and you get a little rest and peace very soon.

Do you know how much I love that you ended with "But, I am still happy." I am not so good at staying happy through trials. I think it says a lot about your inner strength. :)
