Falling apart.

11 Jan

Hello. My boyfriend left me. I’m a wreck. So is he. This wasn’t easy, but apparently it’s necessary. We both hoped it wouldn’t be, so if you feel compelled to lend us your support, we both accept it. Thanks. That’s pretty much all I have to say about it, being both somewhat private and still numb from shock. But it will likely result in either increased or decreased blogging. Hard to tell at this point. I promise to post SP7 info and knitting progress as it occurs, but I’m more of a curl up in a ball and hide than a throw yourself into your work type of person. Plus I’ll be running around with friends and my last semester of school and trying to find a job and most likely planning a move to L.A. or Philly. Don’t worry though, me and upheaval, we’re best buds.

At least there’s yarn.

The yarn for my dad’s Drunken Argyle vest arrived today. And now that I’m not going to that adorable two year old’s birthday party this weekend I can get to the lys for the needles I’ll need. At least there’s that. And now it’s time for some Excedrin pm. ‘Night all!

    I’m so sorry. And I’m a curl up and hide person too. Do what feels right, and take care.

    Wha…. huh?
    I am both sorry and appalled. For you and the kitty mostly, because, while I quite liked the boy, it is you who are my primary area of concern in this matter.
    Fuck L.A., join me in the May 2007 exodus to Portland.
    In the meantime, COME to L.A.!! I will…. find you vegan treats. Which is how you know I love you. You can bring the kitty, even, as I now have a house full of cats and one more CERTAINLY won’t matter.
    Curling up into a ball is all well and good, but might as well do it in a thoroughly distracting environ, no?

    Ellie, I am so sorry to hear this – I hope you are okay. I hope you can find some comfort… *hugs*
    I received your package, and I thank you so much for sending that beautiful yarn. I am just amazed by those colors – how did you know they were my favorites? Beautiful. You mentioned in the note that it was custom yarn – can you tell me where you got it? I really love it. Thanks so much for thinking of me.
    Take care, sweety. I will be thinking about you~

    You definitely have my support. Breakups are hard. Curling up into a ball is nice but I hope we don’t completely lose you from the blogging community. Post as needed.

    Morgan I would love to! Unfortunately there’s this pesky last semester here to contend with and it starts Tuesday. Now if I switch to online courses, you’ll be getting a call. And thanks everyone!

    My sympathies on the break-up. Even when “necessary” it hurts. A lot. I know.
    Don’t move to LA, unless you’ve already fallen in love with the place. I spent 18 years growing up there and am 14+ years worth of happy I don’t live there anymore. Job-wise it’s probably much more promising than say BFKings Beach,CA, where I am moving away from… But LA is large, Pasadena is cool, as are parts of West and North LA la land…buena suerte.

    Oh, sweetie, I’m so sorry.
    Hide as long as you need to, and you can always e-mail me if you need to talk. *hugs*
    In other news…I can’t wait to see your drunken argyle! I love that pattern, and I keep thinking about making it, but those wee little needles!

    Thanks again to everyone! And Imbrium, can you believe I’m actually looking forward to those little needles? Ask me again 3″ into it, I’m sure. But there’s something about those perfect little stitches that is so damn satisfying!
    Mary – I am in love with LA (I’m a Los Feliz kinda girl), I think I’m the only person I know who is. I lived there three years and definitely miss it and my friends, who are apparently forming an exodus to Portland.
    Morgan – Who all is involved in this exodus? And know that your past talk of juice bars is enticing. One thing Austin does have is the best damn fresh grapefruit juice ever.
