Hitting the Road...Again

But this time (mostly) by choice. First, I have to suffer through a wedding (could the timing be any worse?) tomorrow. Then I'm off for a mini-vacation to the beach with my mom. I am totally prepared to let her baby me as much as is maternally possible.

I just need to get out of here for awhile. I even have plans to get out of town again next weekend. Just trying to stay busy and surrounding myself with people I love and who love me.

I must admit, though, it would have been really nice if I could've asked SCL to help me get to the Metro this morning. One of the downsides of this whole breakup is missing his helpfulness. He was really generous about things like that. Sigh.

I'll probably be blogging at some point, but it might also be a nice break for me just to chill out on the reflection. We'll see.

Thanks again to those of you who have been awesome. And to those of you who haven't been, I say, "Go fuck yourself." Seriously, that would be a better use of your time than making someone who feels like shit feel worse.

Talk to you all soon.


  1. Have a wonderful time and yay for getting away from it all!

  2. I just wanted to say that I'm going through something similar and read your last few posts from my phone where it was hard to comment. I literally exhaled out loud reading some of those idiotic statements. I think people just cannot handle someone in pain and thus say such noncomforting things. Thank you for drawing attention to the fact that those of us reeling from a broken heart need kindness and empathy.

    So anyway, I'm just writing to say I'm thinking of you. You're not alone. hugs at this difficult time.

  3. Krysten at After I Do asked us to come show you come blog love today. I don't know you so I won't try to dole out advice. I hope that you enjoy your time at the beach with your mom; they really can be some of the best comforters in the world.

  4. New to your blog! And sending you hugs and support! Break-ups are so tough!! Hope you have a fantastic mini-vaca, and definitely enjoy the loving momma treatment :)

  5. It's eerie how similar you situation is to what I went through months ago. I went to a wedding fresh off my re-break-up. It was serious bad timing, but at least being with family helped some.

    I hope keeping busy helps you! The vacations sound lovely.


  6. Just came over from After I Do and read back a few posts. I'm so sorry that you are going through this. Breakups suck out loud. What also sucks is people thinking they are helping, but really just making it worse. I'd love to offer you some brilliant words of advice, but I don't think I can say anything better than your friend did. Enjoy your vacation and mom time. I'll be checking back in to see how you are doing.

  7. Hope you have a great weekend!


  8. Just came over from After I Do and just wanted to say 'hang in there'!
    Won't wish you a great weekend, cause I bet it will be anything but great, but I can at least wish that you get a few moments that isn't all that bad and that it's not all tears and nausea.

    Best wishes from Oslo :)

  9. Hi there. Was sent here from Krysten's blog. I had the intention of leaving a few encouraging words, but after reading a few of your posts I got completely sucked in and had to read everything. (Your writing style is amazingly candid and's like hearing from a good friend)

    After catching up on your story I can only hope that your posts start going the way they did after the first break up. More kickball and bar dancing please (and maybe even a few dating site flirtations). I was so amazed by how you were able to recognize your feelings and in the midst of the hurt and anger still continue your life.

    This time might seem more final and more devastating, but (this is without knowing you at all) I think you are more than capable of trudging through the mess and finding yourself a stronger and happy person at the end.

    I really wish you the best and am sending tons of good thoughts your way.

  10. I'm glad to hear you're going to take a mini-vacay and get away from it all. I don't know how your relationship with your mom is, but with me, she's definitely someone who would be the best woman to cheer me up and help me get through this. (With a lot of ice cream and chocolate, as well!)

    I would suggest just taking a breather from the Internet for the weekend. Just step away and focus on your surroundings more. (Just a thought!)

  11. It's so great that you're going away for a bit! Have an amazing time and I'm sending you tons of positive energy!! I'm so happy that I stopped by your blog tonight:)
