Hellish Weekend

 This was a weekend from hell. Saturday was filled with pain from my tooth, but also because a dear friend of more than 25 years basically told me to jump off a bridge and that she wanted nothing more to do with me. I was absolutely shocked and still am.

I would love to give in to anger and rant, rave, and bitch, but that would only be giving in to more of the pain that exists in the world and I refuse to do that. Instead, I'll honor her request, take her out of my life, and try not to hold her irrational behavior against her. Much easier said than done, though, and it caused me a lot of stress. Stress that came out in...

Funeral of a Friend

It's a funeral for a friendship, so I am placing a
lovely memorial stone on it. R I P

Pain. Pain from my tooth - I'm suddenly starting to be really happy that I can get this taken care of on Wednesday. I don't think I got more than two hours of sleep in a row for the entire night, waking up in so much pain I was rocking with it and tears were falling. Mid-night, I finally gave up and took more pain pills. Then I was finally able to sleep until a little after 8 am, even though I did wake up several more times. Last night I only took two pain pills and managed to sleep relatively well, waking at midnight, but then going back to sleep until my alarm awakened me. I'm still upset about my friend, but a day off has allowed the worst of the pain to begin healing. And playing LOTRO for much of the day yesterday, hooking up with one of my fic-friends in-game was wonderful and very helpful. Now I need to rewrite the story I wanted to post on Wednesday. I'm VERY not happy with it. I'm going to scrap more than 90% of it and rewrite, it will be much better as a result. It's the beginning of a new week, let's all hope for a good one.

*huggles* I'm so sorry about your crappy weekend... tooth pain is just, ack... I think, it's so much worse than anything else because it takes less time for the pain to go from the tooth to the brain than say, a broken toe. As someone who has had too many tooth issues, I can totally say I feel your pain (though my coping mechanism usually includes a lot of swearing and slamming of cabinet doors...) Looking forward to more in-game fun this weekend -- which I hope will be a pain-free weekend for you!
Hey Zhie, one of the few highlights of my weekend was getting to play in Middle Earth with you for a while. That was fun.

I usually don't swear or slam doors - I have to be extremely angry to do that. I have a temper that can burn very hot, but it's over very quickly.

I hope to run into you again this Sunday. I want to crank my Minstrel from level 12 to 20 so that I can get her a spring fest horse also. That means DH will bring in Gwumpie and he'll pull me through levels with him. I'll have to go back and do a lot of leftover quests on my own afterwards, but I'll get my horse. Crazy, but my Noldo really needs one of those blue roan horses :-) If you have someone you want to get up fast, this would be an excellent time.

Sounds like a plan -- you'll get to meet Bainith, my RK. He's at 12 or 13 at the moment, so this looks like an ideal time to finally get him going in levels (he's my secondary for RPing, but has spent way too much time chatting at the Prancing Pony to actually get quests done)!
Sounds good. Our plans are always loose, so I don't know when I'll actually be on. But you're very welcome to join us and we'll see how far we can go before I lose interest, strength, or initiative - LOL.
