you wanna hear about stupid? try this on....
i don't know what to do with myself because the love of my life is gone. i am happy that he is seeing family and friends - but i am crying my stupid eyes out over everything. i go outside to water all of our veggies - and that is food for our future and i just don't care. i could barely wash the dishes from yesterday. i want to scream. i want to join my friend Stephen who has a good series to watch.
and then my new magical and wyzardry friend, lotta joy, sends me a note to let me know that she has finished jambaloney's portrait. have a look at the portraits that she has done of famous people on her blog. she has an incredible eye for detail. and she has amazing talent!
and then she sends me a snippit of jambaloney's eyes?!??!?!? thanks Dana...that has really helped with the crying, you darn nutter!
man she is talented.
can you guys help me? i am trying to pay her peanuts for her time and she just won't let me. can you all hammer her and make sure that i can pay her? pleeeeeeez? she has taken the time to draw a beautiful portrait of the man i love....and she won't let me pay her $50 lousy bucks. i need help here, peeps!
the woman's got me bawling my eyes out. it's almost enough to end the friendship.
i can't wait to share the finished product with you all.
ack. ack. ack. Beth, i need some hairball remover fast!
Why in the name of all that is holy to you (jamie) did you not go with him?? I have been around my wife almost 24 hrs a day for like the last 3 1/2 years. I am going nuts. We are almost at the point of no return. (the big D)ReplyDelete
My god women enjoy the time away from him.
Just send your friend the money, if she sends it back send it back to her, or barter something for it. A cooler full of frozen fish from the river.
frig Rob - you are like one of my bestest internet friends ever!!! thanks so much buddy! i am just going to send her the money! now i just need to sweet-talk her address out of her...i think it's gonna be like pulling teeth but i am pretty strong!ReplyDelete
Rob, dear friend, i wanted to go with him. but i can't leave our gardens and cats for 4 days. just can't buddy. but gawd i wish i was with him.
buddy - i don't enjoy anything that doesn't involve him. haven't been able to for about at least 8 years. he is my life Rob. like he really, really is.
thanks so much for stopping in and commenting....thanks buddy!
Her address is care of Pioneerpreppy. 2009 Gimmecash Road at sureIwillgiveittoher Mo. really it is. Send it along and I will make sure she takes it.ReplyDelete
As far as your codependency issues all I can do is suggest you make me a nice gift along with a picture. Something in leather I think. That will get your creative thoughts flowing.
I would normally suggest an ice water bath but you swim in Canada so we know that won't help.
I know I don't need to tell you Kymber but for your readers who might get offended the above was all sarcasm and she likes it.
bahahahahahahahahaha! oh yer bad PP! but smart!!! and funny! oh man yer a nutter but i love you anyway!Delete
ever think of clone copies?ReplyDelete
Wildflower - i have been trying for years. still no success! but i have about a hundred girlfriends all waiting for me to be successful so that they can have a jambaloney too!Delete
When my Darlin' Man goes out of town, I always end up dragging one of his dirty tee shirts out of the laundry basket, put it over a pillow and go to sleep snuggling that. Poor substitute, but it helps me sleep!ReplyDelete
Not a poor substitute at all. If it helps, the I say go for it because it worked until hubby comes home :-)
Kymber, this is a great suggestion!!!!
Lamb - for years before we moved in together, i used to get him to sleep in the same t-shirt every night for a week and then i would get it from him. i loved sleeping in his t-shirts! and i have been wearing and sleeping in his t-shirt for the past 3 days! but it i hadn't thought of it already - thanks so much for thinking of that!Delete
Sandy - thank you for your sweet friendship! i agree!Delete
If the drawing of the eyes did all that to you, I guess I'm just going to have to email the entire preview....heh heh cuz I'm nice like that.ReplyDelete
lotta joy - i can't believe what an amazing job you did of his portrait....simply uh-mazing!!! and i can't wait for your permission to share it here! thank you so much!Delete
hehehe - ya right!
It's not stupid at all. You realize how much a part of your life Jam is, and you appreciate him, even when he is not there. That seems to me to be a worthy ideal for the rest of the world. May we all feel that way about our mates, all of our lives.ReplyDelete
oh Jane - you really get it. it is so hard to do even the smallest things like eat right now!!!i can't believe i feel this awful....i think it is because we really do spend all of our days together. we don't interract too much outside of the Manor so this is our life...our lives. he's gonna be home tomorrow night at 1am-ish....oh that feels like so far away!!!! xoxoxoxDelete
Hey hon - you'll get through this separation anxiety real soon. You're more than halfway there now. He's coming home in just a bit.ReplyDelete
Jane's right - it's not stupid - it's called LOVE ! And you aren't alone - we all love you too ! So wake up from that nap , eat and then call me.
I love you sis ! xoxoxoxox
Helga - thank you so much for being there for me....the talks with you and A and Connor have been like a balm to my sad, sorry soul. he's back tomorrow night and i just can't wait. i hope that i didn't talk A and Connor's ears off - i would love to talk to them both again. and of course my dearest friend. i love you so much! xoxoxoxoDelete
Jeezzz Girl you are certainly going thru alot of that hairball remedy this weekend.ReplyDelete
Some people don't like to take money. It makes them feel good about themselves and gives them a warm fuzzy to do something for someone else. I know this because that's the way I am.
Speaking of being self sacrificing, since I am such a good person I will volunteer at only the cost of a plane ticket the next time Jam goes out of town to come up and take care of your cats, gardens, hell I will even visit with Jam's fish on the river and make sure his canoe doesn't get too dry. Just think Kymber it's only one more day til he comes home.
Meanwhile if you go too stir crazy, check your email.
Beth - i need more of that hairball remedy - bahahahah! ya - lottajoy is not going to take any money so now i need to somehow sweet talk her address out of her - NOT gonna be easy!!! and then i will send her something sweet. oh how much would i love it if you came up while Jam was away??? next time he goes i am getting my friend Helga and you here - you two would get along famously!Delete
oh and he's not home until tomorrow night at 1am....so it's still 2 full days - ackckckckckckckck! woops, another hairball. checking the email pronto. thanks hon. xoxoxo
You ain't got nothin' that 50 years of togetherness won't cure! Just go through it a day at a time and he'll be back before you know it.ReplyDelete
thank you Mr. Smythe! i hope that in 50 yrs i'll be darn sick of looking at him. i just went out to feed the birds and got eaten alive by bugs. i have to go out and water our gardens so it looks like i will have to slather down in deet and i hate that stuff. oh well...watering kills a good hour. thank you Sir! your comments here are always very appreciated!Delete
Somehow, I doubt if you'll be sick of lookin' at 'im!Delete
Mr.Smythe - you should feel bad about staring so deeply into my soul! bahahahahahahah! you are so right tho...as you always are, Sir!Delete
Hey Sweet Kymber,ReplyDelete
I sent you an e-mail.
Jam is your soulmate (which means two together = 1)....just my thought.
So it's not silly at all.
How sweet of Lotta Joy to complete a portrait of Jam, she's a talented Lady. So if she won't accept your money, why don't you make something crafty for her. Kymber, you're extremely talented yourself. Just a thought :-)
Sweet Sandy - i will check the email pronto - thank you so much hon! i feel kinda like a kid or something....imagine...this much drama and he's only been gone for 2 days. i used to leave him all the time when i was working as i did a lot of traveling and i hated every minute of it. so now when he is gone i just kind of fall apart.Delete
Sandy wait until you see the portrait that she did - simply amazing! yes, she is very talented. and yes - i am going to send her something in return. not sure what yet. but thanks hon!
Oh dear. Zen hugs to you, sounds like you need 'em. :-) The other half of your soul is out of reach, I believe you are allowed a bit of.... hold on, I'm with Rob.. why didn't you go with??ReplyDelete
I also bet you are in major planning stages of the grand welcome home ceremonies, eh?
oh Elizabeth - thanks for those hugs - i sure do need them. that's exactly how it feels - like half of my soul is 1,000 miles away and i am just not functioning. i didn't go due to the extra expense and because i can't leave the cats and gardens for that long. no one here gardens and so they wouldn't know what to do. and on top of that, we all live so far from each other, asking someone to feed the cats and water the gardens would be asking a lot. and on top of that, everyone here is in the middle of lobster season, working long hours 6 days a week. i wouldn't even consider asking someone to have to come here 2 every day to take care of the cats and garden.Delete
there will be many planned grand welcome home ceremonies. but he'll probably come in the door and i will just start bawling and lay on him on the kitchen floor for several hours. poor guy!
ok, that makes sense. still sucks though!Delete
would homemade fudge help? i am willing to send your choice of flavour :-)
Elizabeth - i am just getting to this...what an awesome offer! he has a sweet tooth like you wouldn't believe...and he will eat any kind of fudge. me, i like roast and gravy! bahahahahahah! thanks for being so sweet - we both really, really appreciate it!Delete
While you say you cry, and my heart feels for you, the story also makes me smile because I can feel the love and companionship you have for him all the way down here across the cyberspace. What a wonderful person you are, the world needs more loving, caring people like you.ReplyDelete
Make those gardens beautiful, put up some food in the freezer/fridge and make a great meal for him with stuff you harvest and took care of just for him. He'll be home soon, I promise!
Big hugs from down this way!
ah 1st Man - thanks so much. and your hugs are very much appreciated - send some more - i need them! i am heading out to water all of the gardens in a few - need to slather on some deet as the bugs are really bad today. i can't wait till he gets home....i just feel so unsettled in my soul. i think you know what i mean!Delete
I know your sadness.... It always sucked eggs, when Senior left for 6 + months on deployment. I remember one year he was gone 356 days out of 365... no kidding! thank God we did not have kids back then,or I would have been going insane.ReplyDelete
I did the tshirt thing as well, I would put one over a pillow and squirt it with his cologne and sleep with it every friggin night.
So cheer up buttercup! JB will be home soon..
Oh for pete's sake. Let the nice lady give you a gift...I guess I'm gonna have to fly up there and spank your little bottom...and I hit hard.ReplyDelete
careful Stephen she may like it. kymber just don't tackle jamie to hard. Remember he is not as young as he used to be. Give him lots of water or gator aid. let him come up for air every now and then.Delete
No folks no earthquake in N.S. but the earth did move. bahahaha evil grin.
