One is the Lonliest Number

For some reason, I felt really lonely today. It happens to me sometimes (it's wierdest when I'm actually *with* someone), but today I was just ill prepared to deal with it, probably 'cause of the stresses of the week.
Fortunately, I had to return a call from my brother and he and his girlfriend pepped me up a bit. Enough to get through the rest of the day. I'm really looking forward to seeing them tomorrow.
I will be going up to Ft. Collins with my sister to help them move. What I decided to do was stop be the hospital where my aunt is and leave a card with the nurses. It shows her the magnitude of our caring without intruding on the space she needs.
Until then, study study (not like yesterday, when I ended up feeling like crap and going to bed early).
Thanks for coming by and sharing this space with me!

I hear you. Your Auntie is still in my thoughts.

Once the holiday/testing crazies are over, would you like to get lunch some day? I'm always up to really "meet" an on-line bud.

Sure, I'd love to. Sometime in January would be great. Something to look forward to! :)

I haven't heard anything recently about Auntie Ruthie. I'll let you know if the nurses say anything when we go to drop off the card today.

Sounds great. Good luck getting your brother and his Hot Chick moved.

I rarely get lonely, but I often get overwhelmed with large numbers of people. This time of year is really bad for that.

That's not to say I don't ever get lonely, I'm especially prone to it when I'm away on business and only have a hotel room to keep me company.

Hopefully tomorrow will look up! (Not much hope for the day after... I do not heart Mondays)

Saturday was good, Shawn, thank you. Monday, as you predicted, is not fun, but what can you do?
