I'm Recycling

Ahem.

Where to begin? What? Oh. At the beginning you say?

Okay. Here goes:

I've recently separated from The very lovely Husband (collective gasp) after almost 12 years (yes, he tolerated me for THAT long) and we now have a mortgage AND an apartment to pay for (have I mentioned I'm a social worker not a neurosurgeon?!) so life is not easy some days...in the craziness of all this change, I've kind of lost of my blogging mojo and I'm focusing on making sure my kidlets remain happy and I'm just generally trying to keep my sh!t together...I'm feeling rather uninspired in my cute new flip flops and sundress (Shut up. Retail therapy is too a thing!!).

But, amidst the crap, I've got some (good) news - - - I'm recycling! Because I am at one with the earth and all that jazz (insert jazz hands here).

Here's the dealio, yo! I'm gonna re-post one of my oldies for you each week and for those of you who have not been with me since 2000 and freaking 8! You're so 2000 and late! (Holy crap, why am I not famous yet!!??!!) The posts will feel just like brand spanking new! Yep, it's true. And for those of you who have been here forever (Oh how I heart you big time), you can re-read them again for a laugh.

When I find my mojo, I'll be back. Deal?

On a serious note. My readers are the bestest peeps in all the land and I love, love, love LOVE writing The Colie Chronicles which I will continue to do...forever and ever. Amen. Thank you for always being supportive, for appreciating my twisted humor, relishing in my many levels of insanity and for making me smile.

I'm forever grateful and someday hope to buy you all a mojito.

Oh my, Colie!! GASP f'realsies. But I had a FEELING this is what you were going through :(. Not that i find it unusual to cry in your car outside of Starbucks (/the mall/my eyebrow waxing place/on airplanes/while walking the dog, etc.), BUT, that is something I mostly do after a breakup. I KNOWS you will be okay, but know that we (your fans/friends - frans?) are here for you as you navigate the inevitably messy, weepy, complicated, griefy, sad/exciting (sexciting?), painful/hopeful (popeful?) and ultimately peaceful world of moving on. Supertight loving (virtual)hugs of love coming your way. I know your life is totes full of lovers, but I would lie crying and drunk with you on the beach any day. XOXOXO Cat (Fawcett)

I'm here now (and have been for the last few months), and that's what counts, right? Sorry I can't find that burger wallet yet.

Chris said...

Mother of Christ, you just keep pouring it on.

I am really sorry things had to go the way they did, but wish you all the love in the world to get you through.

Mama Sarita said...

I've been your reader as of January, thank you for thinking of us while dealing with this heavy situation. I look forward to your recycling and your light at the end of this shitty tunnel! Much love.

Hey girl. Well, I am sorry that things are a bit of a mess in 'real' life, but I am glad you have you back here. We really missed ya! And I am sure we will all enjoy the 'recycled' post. That is very earth friendly of you :) I'll be thinking about you in the mean time. In a non-creepy way of course, lol

Sherri said...

Colie said...

Schwa backwards upside down e - you have been and I'm very thankful.

When I finally get my burger wallet, I will buy a mojito in your honor and drink it happily.

Colie said...

One more thing Schwa - I am still waiting for my mint leaves stuffed in the PB jar. Sheesh. Get on it man!

Colie said...

@Chris, Lindsay & Mama Sarita - thank you so much for your kind words. My bloggy peeps are the bestest!! xoxoxo (one for each of you!)

Colie said...

@Sherri - thank you so much. I'm going to try to recycle each Friday so keep checking in :)

@Lori - You don't need a coupon honey but I will make you cash it in because that's hilarious!!!! We seriously need to plan a real life mojito meet up/tweet up one of these days! I am too poor for the Blog conferences...sob sob

Missing all that's been going on with you makes me now despise moving to WordPress. I was so used to seeing blog updates on my page but stupid WP doesn't have that widget. It's also my fault for not spending time to visit each and every blogger that I heart.

Just came across this post of yours and...I'm sorry Colie. Pretty anemic response but my feeling is that you are one, very strong, lady given all you've been through. Keep your wonderful spirit bouncing and jabbing anything and everything that gets in your way.

Hugs, my friend...BIG ones!
