"Your biting sarcasm wounds me, Madam..."

Monday, March 24, 2008


Hi there.

It's been a few months.... uh. I meant to call. But i've been, you know, kind of embarrassed. Cause it's been so long. And i didn't really know how to come back and be all, "hey!" as if nothing happened. So i've been sitting here wondering how i'm supposed to be all, "hey," and then i figured that i'd just come right out and say it.


I'm back.

To be honest, life has been kind of sliding down the shit mountain and i've been quiet because i know no one wants to hear 300 words of complaining every time you come here, so i figured i'd keep it to myself. Believe me, I've been doing YOU a favor. Because i'm a nice girl like that.

So here, in list format, since you've been asking, is what has been going on round these parts for the past 3 months:

  1. Cousin G is still getting married, i am still a bridesmaid and at this point i have spent upwards of $1300 so that she can get married.
  2. People keep asking me when I'M going to get married without really understanding that not only can we not afford to get married, we totally can't afford an engagement ring.
  3. The Boy has been a mess lately with a herniated disk that has left him, at times, incapacitated. Without health insurance, he is pretty much fucked.
  4. I had to take this semester off from school because i am teh poor.
  5. I got an invitation to my 10-year high school reunion. 'Nuff said.
  6. The Boy's 92 yr old grandmother fell in her house (and couldn't get up) and went from hospital to rehabilitation nursing center last week. Currently, this woman who had been so sarcastic and sharp is having a hard time keeping everything in her brain that was there last week.
  7. My credit card debt is so high that my friends ask me how i sleep at night.
  8. I have gone off the wagon with WeightWatchers and realize that i have probably gained back everything i had lost since last year.
  9. Stepping in dog shit on Friday night made me cry.

TA-DA! Welcome to the Sunshine and Roses Webpage. Where everything is happy and bright until you step in an unsuspecting pile of dog-pie and you lose whatever semblance of control you had that was keeping you from sobbing into your low-fat chocolate milkshake.

And THAT, my friends, is why i have not been Sharon The Sharer these past couple of months.

I'm thinking i need to get this shit out somewhere, however, so i have a feeling i'll be back.

  • Yay! You're back! I hate it that things are not going so good for you right now, but (and how cliche can I possibly be?) things WILL get better. They will. In the meantime, go have a lot of ice cream; that always makes me feel better. (New blog, by the way, just so you know. I, too, was gone for a while.)

  • Oh my. Well. Things will improve, certainly they will. I know that's NOT HELPFUL and you maybe want to punch me for saying it, but I do believe it's true.

    That being said, I'm glad you're back. I'd almost given up.

  • Despite the unfortunate nature of things, I'm glad you're back, and happy to listen to you vent to your heart's content. And I'm sorry about all the crap that's been going down. But I really believe that a shitstorm like that can't last forever. Here's hoping things pick up soon.

  • Dude. Could be worse. I thought you must be dead.

    No, bad joke, sorry. I hope for better things for you.

  • Sorry Q1 of '08 has been such a relentless crapfest for you. You've gotta figure that at some point the karma will even out though... right?

    (in the meantime, let your sarcasm be your umbrella)

  • Dude, really it sounds pretty lousy, but at least vent here. That's what the internet is for.

    And for what it's worth, I'm glad you're back.
