The lights go out and I can't be saved, tides that I tried to swim against

Remember how I said September sucked? Well, you would think that I would learn from that, and not challenge the universe.  But apparently that lesson didn't sink in, because October was even worse in many ways.

The worst of all of it was having my dad have a stroke while I was in the midst of a cervical cancer scare.  I'm fine, and he's doing remarkably well, but the stress of the two events combined, plus the reality that we had to cancel our trip to England and the guilt I felt over Jay missing that once-in-a-lifetime trip, just about killed me.

OK November, how about we have a complete turn-around, where a month goes smoothly and pleasantly?

And December? Don't even try to piss me off.  You have no idea what you're in for if you try.


  1. Oh Lisa, you're a good swimmer and you're not alone.


  2. Lisa, it's the one-two punch that gets us. There's always something, but when there are several somethings at once we feel like we're drowning. At least, I know I do. I hope you can find a bit of light each day. Sending love to you and Jay.

  3. You really did taunt the Fates in September. Don't you recall our group's luck in Octobers over the years? The biggest one was our "taunt October" spaghetti dinner where Jon had the motorcycle accident afterwards.

    Respect October!

    As for November, please do not add any further burdens upon my spiritual sister!

    And December, please respect her birth month, especially since it may her one opportunity to play with a full deck (yay, 52!) ;)

  4. Lisa, you're beautiful and wonderful. I am sorry the universe has been shitty recently. Breathe when you can, know that I'm listening for you. Hugs.


  5. Lisa, you are an incredible, vibrant, loving woman. Keep on keeping on - or my version, keep on hugging til your arms fall off.

  6. Too much, too much! Lisa, you are in my thoughts.

  7. I've never met you, and it's amazing how much I find myself thinking about you and sending you good vibes. Here's hoping November and December behave themselves (but if they don't, you will manage; I promise).

  8. *holds you in the light*

    Oh man. That's just awful.

  9. *hugs* *hugs* *hugs* *hugs*

    It's all I've got. They're all yours, sweetie.
