So Long, It's Been Good To Know You...

I've not been much of a presence on LJ lately. Very few posts, and even fewer comments, no matter how wonderful the fics were or the manips. RL's been rather raw for me, and now I have to leave. The landlord decided not to renew my lease. Wonder if it was the five months back rent I owed? **shrugs**

Anyway it's a sort of good news/bad news deal. Good news is I'm headed back to New York (home of my beloved Yankees whom I will see on an almost daily basis, and my sons whom I will not see quite so often) on Saturday. Bad news is the internet and cable goes bye bye tomorrow before 5 o'clock.

I have withdrawal shivers already.

I've slept ten hours in the past week and probably won't pass out again until I find myself in the new place that my cousin and brother have rented for me until I can get back on my feet. Here's to the establishing residency rigamarole.

I'm frantically tossing the remainder of my stuff into three wardrobes and taping boxes shut like a mad box-taping thing.

Thanks for bringing sunshine into what I've allowed to become a miserable existence. As my birthday approaches, I'm hoping this move back home is the best present I can give to myself. See you on the flip side, babies. With any luck, I'll be back in touch soon.

Will anybody even notice? Will anybody even care?

Oh absolutely and will notice. I miss your beautiful and encouraging comments already. I'm a slack communicator, and I really hope a fresh start does give you renewed enthusiasm and hope. Take care and I look forward to when you can come back. (And to when you can write.)

My greatest desire is to be happy and calm enough to write again. I miss it, and I miss the connection with readers. But I'll always be a fanfic reading junkie. **laps up your kind words and holds them dear** Counting on coming back strong, life willing.

Oh yes we will! I'll keep you on my list so that one day, when you can return, you'll one day magically appear. *hugs* I'm so sorry you are falling on bad times. Just remember to keep breathing and hopefully things will get better soon. But you do what you have to do. *more hugs* We'll miss you!

Thanks for your kindness, Sharvie. Will try and remember to breathe. I find it does indeed come in handy at time.

Better is of the good, and at least I'll be near my kids. Now they'll have no excuse for not visiting. *mwah*

I'm going to miss you. Due to my rather insane life, I haven't been keeping up with LJ at all. But I have noticed you've been one, and I will miss you!

I know I'm not alone in the crazy life sweepstakes. It's oddly comforting. Hopefully things will ease for us both.

Hi, you don't know me; I read mostly from Sickchicks so I'm not on your friends list and I don't remember if I've ever commented on one of your postings or fics (I read mostly Spangel and you write everybody). I do remember though that you are a person with a kind and generous heart who always thinks of others - thinking back, even when you were obviously having troubles of your own. I hope things work out for you, and that you come back soon. You will be missed.

Thank you so much for your kind words. They're a great mood lifter as move-day approaches rapidly. Oh well, who needs sleep anyway, right? And gotta love SickChicks - brings together a marvelous bunch of people. *hugs you*

I am thrilled that you are heading back to NY and that you will be near your sons - I remeber you mentioning that you missed them. Thank goodness for your cousin and brother who are helping you with renting you must be relieved!!

I will notice that you are not around (already had)- please have a safe move (what about the kitties?) and once you are settled please touch base even if it's just a hey there - I will miss your wonderful comments and support! Will also hope that the move inspires you to write some more Crazy Eights *winks*

HUGS

PS the icon is my new baby who moved in with me in January and has taken over everything!

Yup! New York is where I want to be. And I am absurdly thankful for my family's help.

The kitties are coming with me. It was a prerequisite that they be allowed in the apartment. Almost cost me a new place to live, but I won't leave them. They're now 13 years old. They send purrs and pats to your new baby.

And yes, I want nothing more than the peace and inspiration to write again. So glad you still want more of my little ficcie. **smooches you**

We've noticed.

Take care of yourself. It seems that you've been wanting to move back to NY for some time, so I can only hope this is going to work out for you.

And, yes, we will</a> see you on the flipside. Here's hoping it's really soon.

Can you believe I'm already suffering from internet withdrawal, and they haven't picked up the modem yet? It's a hard knock life, indeed. I'm hoping for a return soon, too. Got it planned, but you know what they say about plans...

Relishing your kind words.

Good lord! An out of country move sucks - been there, done that in my very distant past. Moved from NY to Israel. Had to throw out most of my childhood stuff, too. Only, how can I still have so much as I'm tossing out more now? Ah well, I'm still of the opinion that it breeds whilst I sleep.

Good luck on your move, too - and we'll meet each other online again. **smiles**

Every time I raise a glass and say "Bottoms Up" I'll think of you and Spike. They're irrevocabally linked in my pervy little mind. **grins**

Will be back as soon as I can, and hopefully stronger and happier. *mwah*

Thanks, hon. I hope I enjoy the new place, too. I'm moving in sight unseen, much like I did here. As long as the door locks, and my stuff fits, even if it lines the walls, I'll be okay with my kitties.

Yep, your comments, your stories and your baseball posts have all been missed in recent months. Like everyone else, I wish you well for the move and hope that when life settles down, that you'll be back. Rest assured that you won't be forgotten in the meantime, however long that might be.

Take care and good wishes.

I've wanted to move back to NY for so long now. That I am happy about - just not the circumstances. But... hopefully changing them will be of the good and better things are in store for me and my kitties. And a smooth move would be a blessing, indeed. Thanks for the kind thoughts, love.
