This had been that kind of week. Busy, frantic, full of things you have to do, rather than things you want to do. I will be away from my blog for a few days, and (gasp!) won't even be able to READ your blogs. I may just have withdrawal symptoms, so if anyone has a prescription for Valium, please feel free to send me a couple.
Before I tell you where I'm going, I first want to tell you how wonderful your comments have been. After I got that miserable email, I really did feel horrible. I know I shouldn't let that one anonymous person get to me, but that proved impossible. Even though it hurt, your incredibly supportive comments helped more than you could possible know. I loved each and every one of them. They were funny and smart, just like they always are, and each time I read a new one, the bad feeling got pushed a little bit farther away. If you haven't read them, you should go back and check them out. Really amazing.
I mentioned to a couple of people this week that I should just quit blogging about my own issues and just post a topic and let you all discuss it. Your comments are so often funnier and more clever than anything I ever say. Maybe my talent lies is finding things that inspire you!
We are packing up and leaving for a big race. The race is one of the rare three-day races, and thus we must travel Thursday. I am driving about 3 and a half hours tomorrow afternoon, and then will be at the race on Friday. Then, I'm abandoning the kids to race the rest of the weekend while I drive 6 hours to Boston for a Saturday Boston Bruins game. I am a huge hockey fan, and this is a dream opportunity to see them live, FOR FREE! I was given the ticket and will be going there with a big group of people that I really enjoy spending time with. I will be home sometime on Sunday, and that will be the first time I'll be able to check on my blog buddies.
I'm used to be connected to the internet at almost all times, so this is going to be a hard four days, but I will be having fun, so I should be okay. I'm thinking about trying to make contact with my birth mother again, so next week I'll be looking for your advice (again - I know, I take advantage of you!)
I hope you all have a nice weekend with lots of time to do those things that make you happy.
