Back and gone again

I'm back, sunburned and bug bitten. My trip was uneventful and (mostly) relaxing just as it should have been. I'm busy this weekend with a friend's wedding that includes a weekend full of wedding-related activities. (Which explains why I'm up at 7:00 am on a Sunday morning. Have I ever mentioned that I'm not a morning person?)

Tomorrow morning early, very early (again with the not a morning person bit), I'm leaving on business travel. So I'm going to have to wait a bit to catch up with you all. I hope when I do I'll find an overabundance of happy posts.

Getting in touch with myself

I told you what the counselor had to say about the 6 weeks, but here's the part I didn't tell you.

The counselor suggested I make time everyday for things that are important to me, things that will help me get through this. For example, she said, I might want to schedule time each day to cry. Or go for a walk. Or write. Or maybe for some "personal sexual time." Um, what was that last one again?

She told me the idea was to do things to get back in touch with myself. But she must not have explained it precisely that way, because if she had actually said I should use personal sexual time to get in touch with myself, I would have been in hysterics. I mean, really.

Forget the personal sexual time, what I really need is to schedule time to read blogs. I'm way behind. And it's only going to get worse. I'm off to the lake and will be without phone, TV or the Internets for more than a week. I'm sure I'll have lots to catch up on when I return. Until then, best to you all.
