Only The Lonely

I really didn't have such a great sleep last night.  When one doesn't get the required amount of sleep one's body and mind requires on any given day, it can sometimes make for a pretty "blah" day, can it not?

"Then you end up feeling and looking like this ALL day long."

"Then you go out to find three more inches of snow has fallen.  Despite how tired you are feeling you still can register enough to admire the beauty of it all.  Then get a "chuckle" at your very pregnant Aussie girl trying to run down the lane way."

"The morning, like my mood, was a little blustery, however the day did turn into something a little brighter then I was feeling."

"I really did feel happy at this wonderful Happy Mail I received from dearest Virna, over at Craftmates.  Postcards from her September 2012 trip to Spain and new Coffee cozies for my "Crabby Cabbie" and I, that she had made herself !  Thank you so very much Virna, I will open the gift packs with our new cozies in them when my "Crabby Cabbie" is home with me.  xx"

I absolutely LOVE the Craftmates, as each and everyone of those four girls are "Out of this World" lovely !  How would I know this? I took it upon myself to go meet them in person HERE.  

Please take a moment to introduce yourself to the Craftmates, Virna, Aimee, Irma and Bebsy by *clicking* HERE.

I took the time today to do a post on our "Checkerboard Aussie" Blog, as I had received testimonials from Forever Homes where two of the "Spectacular Six" Checkerboard Aussies 2012 Litter rule the house.  Please take a little boo over there way to see how happy and smart everyone is making out, just by *clicking* HERE.

However "blah" I have been feeling today, I still had to feed myself.

"I was happy it was something other then my usual PB sandwich on 12 Grain Bread.  I was living it up today with a Chicken Whole Wheat Wrap ! "

What could possibly be wrong with me, other then being tired? let me tell you ......

... I am feeling lonely and missing my Best Friend, my Soul Mate, my husband !!!  I am missing any sense of what resembled a routine we used to have together... I really miss our kibitzing and bickering (second nature to us some days), even our up in each others faces, person to person, arguing some days ... that really is the height of missing someone now isn't it, when you even miss the disagreements?  

This morning before I had gotten out of our bed, Rob had his arm draped over me ... absence does make the heart grow fonder, as it felt so very "good" having that contact.  Mind you, we speak to each other over the phone quite frequently throughout the day, but really it is far from the same as having the personal connection.

Tomorrow is Sunday.  Tomorrow morning Rob doesn't get home until the "wee" hours of the morning.  Tomorrow I will try my darnedest to be quiet and let him sleep in.  Tomorrow he will get up for a couple hours then fall back to sleep in his chair, wake to have Dinner, then fall back to sleep again.  

The next day is Monday and it begins all over again ....

I know I am not alone in how I feel, but I am tired, I am feeling lonely and I need to have an early night to bed with hopefully some much needed sleep, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".


  1. Lovely photos ! I hear ya on the lack of sleep I have to take a pretty high dose of sleeping pills as I have had insomnia for years and sometimes they don't work so I know how you feel ! I love PB sandwiches to lol ! Hope you get a good nights sleep !

  2. my husband as well as farming 150 acres, training and boarding horses works seasonally as a heavy equipment operator and is also a professional musician. In summer he works 12-14 hour days at construction sites, comes home to farm chores and plays gigs all weekend at weddings, community events and bars.I rarely see him- and oh how the loneliness sets in something fierce! By October I feel unsure I could pick him out in a crowd! LOL. Then suddenly about Dec 15 most of it comes to an abrupt end and he can spend many weeks at home with little outside distraction save the horses. We just soak each other in.
    Hope you get some sleep and time to reconnect soon!

  3. Went and checked out the Craftmates, & let them know how I found them. ;) I so hear you on the lack of sleep thing. Thank you for your pictures, through which I am having winter vicariously.

    Hey, you know about dogs, right? Is it something they teach puppies in puppy school on how to untie people's shoes? (I just hope ours don't learn how to tie the two shoes together while I'm sitting at the computer...cause I wouldn't put that past the little ... um, dears. Yeah, that's it.)

    Did I say I understood the lack-of-sleep thing? Happy Sunday, my friend.

  4. I had a lack of sleep thing last night, must be excited about somthing....wink, wink!!!

    Hope last night was a better night for you.

    Must pop over to the doggies blog.


  5. Hi Cindy,

    Thanks so much for sharing our blog!

    I hope you have a wonderful Sunday with Crabby Cabbie.

    Take care,

  6. Aww... Too bad we're not closer to each other! You could come hang out here! There's never a chance to be lonely! lol!! Love the Craftmates as well! :) Such talented women!!!

  7. Lack of sleep can really suck the stuffing out of a person. Try to have a snooze when the mood strikes you until you get back on track.
    We haven't had any new snow since that big dump a week or more ago. Tomorrow (Monday) might bring a bit of fresh stuff though.

  8. Oh, my poor friend, hugs to you!! I know how lonely it can get. When Hubby was in school, he would leave at 7 in the morning and come back at 11 pm. And than there was homework...I hated it! I do hope you have some good sleep tonight, at least!

  9. My husband and I are on opposite shifts, he works steady afternoons, so I get a glimpse of him for approx 1/2 hr each morning, all week, then weekends he's working his 2nd job. It's rare to find a nigh together but when we do we make it worth while and appreciate each other just a wee bit more. Hang in there, it's rough but you are not alone...all those snuggly big furry 4 legged lovable creatures we share our homes 2 definetly give me comfort when feeling blah. Hope sleep finds you soon! :) I know that feeling too... lol :)

  10. I've had that feeling going on for a few days now....


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
