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?

I wish you a good start at the new place and I truely belive you will get back on your feet real soon.
Aug. 12th, 2005 02:13 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for your kind wishes. I'm gathering all the good vibes I can get.
Aug. 12th, 2005 09:04 am (UTC)
I'll certainly notice and care. Hope that the good finally works out for you, honey. We'll be here waiting.

Aug. 12th, 2005 02:15 pm (UTC)
Miss you so much, Josey. Hope things are going well for you, too. Hugs you tightly and hope to be back online soon. And happier days ahead.
Aug. 12th, 2005 09:16 am (UTC)
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.)
Aug. 12th, 2005 02:23 pm (UTC)
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.
Aug. 12th, 2005 09:26 am (UTC)
Oh! I will miss you, who else will whisper sweet Spuffy and kids stories. Hope everything goes well for you during your absence *hugs*
Aug. 12th, 2005 02:25 pm (UTC)
**sniffles** It's good to be missed even before leaving. Thank you, baby. Will be back as soon as I can. If not sooner.
Aug. 12th, 2005 09:27 am (UTC)
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!
Aug. 12th, 2005 02:46 pm (UTC)
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*
Aug. 12th, 2005 09:36 am (UTC)
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!
Aug. 12th, 2005 03:31 pm (UTC)
I know I'm not alone in the crazy life sweepstakes. It's oddly comforting. Hopefully things will ease for us both.
Aug. 12th, 2005 09:37 am (UTC)
I wish you the best on your new start and I hope that everything works out for you. I hope you take care; you will be missed.

Aug. 12th, 2005 03:32 pm (UTC)
**holds onto your sweet thoughts tightly** I'll be back as soon as I can.
Aug. 12th, 2005 09:41 am (UTC)
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.
Aug. 12th, 2005 03:51 pm (UTC)
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*


PS the icon is my new baby who moved in with me in January and has taken over everything!
Aug. 12th, 2005 04:21 pm (UTC)
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**
Aug. 12th, 2005 10:36 am (UTC)
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.

Aug. 12th, 2005 04:24 pm (UTC)
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.
Aug. 12th, 2005 10:39 am (UTC)
I wish you luck in your move.

It's always daunting, i'm selling my house and moving back abroad so i know exacty how you feel.

Please keep in touch xxx


PS HAPPY BIRTHDAY for when it comes
Aug. 12th, 2005 04:27 pm (UTC)
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**
Aug. 12th, 2005 10:39 am (UTC)
You're going to be missed a great deal. I hope things start to look up for you soon. Sending positive thoughts your way. *hugs*
Aug. 12th, 2005 04:31 pm (UTC)
From your mouth to the PTB's ears. Better would be good. I'd settle for better. *grasps positive thoughts and tucks them away*
Aug. 12th, 2005 10:41 am (UTC)
Well, I've missed seeing your name around, and I hope that once you've moved and things have stabilised a bit, you'll be back.

Aug. 12th, 2005 02:28 pm (UTC)
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*

*Hugs*, Andrea.

I hope we'll see you here again soon and that the move home is a positive one for you.
Aug. 12th, 2005 03:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks, hon. Will be back as soon as possible. And the move has to be a good one - I'll always feel like a New Yorker in my heart.
Aug. 12th, 2005 10:58 am (UTC)

I hope the move goes well, and that the recent bad times soon become a distant memory. Take care.
Aug. 12th, 2005 04:40 pm (UTC)
Wouldn't mind looking back on this with other than fond memories. May this be the worst that life has in store for me. Hugs your kind words tightly.
