Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

Tuesday, February 13, 2007


Things have not been going so hot for your friend Swishy lately. Yesterday started off sucky and turned out mostly OK; today started off OK and turned out sucky. It's definitely worse when you think you're going to have an OK day and then it goes to shit. I guess I should automatically expect sucky and then I'll be pleasantly surprised, huh?

(Look out, the scorching rays of my sunny optimism might burn a hole through your screen!)

I think everyone hates this time of year. I went to see Ayelet Waldman a few weeks ago (fabulous, by the way) and she said that February is the absolute worst month. I used to hate January more, but I'm starting to think she has a point.

I'll post something bright and cheery later. In the meantime ...

I kinda like February, but March?!! AHHHH! Not a single school day off and the month drags on forever! And it's yucky outside.

I hate winter

Expecting the worst and being pleasantly surprised has been my m.o. pretty much since day one. It's served me well. ;) Hope today goes better for you!

I agree - winter blows (except for about Dec. 23-Jan. 1. It can be wintery then. After that, hit the road, bucko.)

I'm kind of liking winter at the very moment. Today. I won't like it tomorrow. But right now we're stuck in the house with a ton of snow and sleet outside. Cool because I've got a house full of junk food and nothing else to do. Tomorrow is another story, though. I'll have to get back to life and I won't be happy if it's still icy outside.

I'm looking forward to spring, too.

Yes, February definitely does suck. Let's just say all of the snowy, cold, dark and gloomy days suck!! Can't wait til summer. Oh, wait, that means swim suit season!! Maybe I can wait!!

Well, I don't think I have a favorite or worse month. February is just another month, as long as you don't expect anything, you won't get dissapointed! LOL Yea, ray of sunshine coming right back at ya!

As a wise old friend tells me, You can start your day over whenever you want to. And of course when she tells you that, you want to flip her off and say F'You baby. And she knows that is what must people want to do, so it's kinda funny now.

Or her other saying "Boy, God must think alot about me today if he thinks I can handle all this" based on God will never give you more than you can handle.

yeah I really love hearing that from her when I'm really crank, depressed or just wallowing.

But mid winter sucks, I don't care where you are, it's still winter. Florida is hyper sensitive to seasons as there usually only slight changes..

My husband insists that I'm pessimistic, but I call it being realistic. I must say, I'd rather be prepared than be unpleasantly surprised. And if things go better than I imagined, all the better.

Hope February starts looking up for you!

I ADORE Ayelet's books. I emailed her once after reading one and she wrote me back which pretty much made my day.
