A Rare Melancholy Interlude  
Back from vacation, such as it was.  If I'd known a month ago I'd have to be getting a MRI on my wrist, I probably wouldn't have gone, so all I could think about all weekend was the money I was stuck spending that I didn't have to spend.  Fun fun fun.  Today's my last day off before I go back to work, but it's not like I can go do anything.  Mowed the lawn, will try to finish season one of Downton Abbey, and get as much done on my het bigbang as possible.

Normally I try to make my posts entertaining to read, because I don't like reading boring sad posts from other people - no offense, but I have enough shit to deal with in my own life, I don't really care to read about anyone else's if it's not at least going to be a good story.  But I don't have the energy to try and jazz this one up.  There's also stuff going on in my home life, but I don't post about that stuff, and there's no real way to talk around it - suffice it to say that I am as bummed as I ever get, and sort of looking at my life and wondering when it all went wrong, and wishing I could go back ten years and do it all differently.

ETA: Had a wee creys in the shower and am feeling marginally better.  Am trying to remind myself that I have a roof over my head, food in the pantry, and am in relatively good health.  Not having money means I can't stop at Wendy's on my way to work, or go to the movies, or buy a DVD or a book, not that I am living in poverty.  I am going to make myself a hot chocolate and look at it from the perspective that, looking at history, a hot chocolate is a huge luxury.  How many human beings have lived and died and never had a hot chocolate?

*distance hug* I'm sorry, babe. I'm glad the shower made you feel a bit better. I know you're not going to want to PM every person who comments, but I'm also here if you want to talk.

Oh, I'll be updating at PFTT sometime today. It's not the end of the world or anything, it's just...blergh.

*hugs* if you want 'em

I can sympathize with the feeling of looking at one's life and wondering how it got to be a bit of a mess.
If you ever want to talk, I'm around, albeit more or less a stranger as I am.

Hope whatever is wrong with your wrist gets better quickly and things get better where you need them to.

Hot water and chocolate are excellent restoratives. Hope things are/get better.

*belated hugs* Sorry I'm so late on this post, and I'm sorry things are shitty :(( I'll be around today if you want to talk.
