It's not you, it's me...

...lots of nice people have sent me nice requests, suggestions, and what have you lately. And I appreciate it. I like to hear news and such from the many interesting people that I know. However, if you have not heard from me, it's because I'm completely overwhelmed.

You know that sense of overwhelm where you actually can't remember what you did a few days ago because it's all a blur, because it's all too much?

And I've been sick. Can't imagine it's all related ;)

So the little things have slid. Sled. Slud.

Every hello feels like another item on my to-do list.

I'm working on crawling out of this hole's not an immediate thing.

So it's not you, it's me. I'm overwhelmed by life right now. I won't be forever.

To begin my upward crawl, I cleaned the house this morning, within an inch of its life. It was a move in the right direction. A few piles had begun to form. I've acquired a terror of piles. I know it doesn't help to stress one's self out with self-punishment, but I just can't handle those ADHD piles anymore. And so I killed them. A few more to go...I'll savor the destruction. Today is the Day of the Dead after all....


  1. I have never been formally diagnised, but all three of my kids have so not much of a stretch to say that I also have ADHD. I totally hear you on the piles. When they get to be too much, we have to purge the house. LOL
    I'm the worst at returning emails and RSVPing to invitations. It really ticks my friends off. They don't have ADHD so clearly they don't get it. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Katy -- I hope you feel better soon.

    Here is the way I view bloggers. That it is enough for them to write their thoughts. Responses are optional.

    It is VERY easy to get overwhelmed with this stuff. Boundaries are so important. Not that I do so great myself. Just to say that I would enjoy your blog even if you never responded to comments, etc.

    Take care, dear.
