What a week

The boys came in Saturday; I went back to school Monday.  We have had two huge Christmas dinners, Mollie cooked one and we headed to my sister’s the next day for another great one.  I’m so lucky to be surrounded by people that can cook.  I feel like I’m in a whirlwind.  The boys are heading back to the city this morning, Mollie is driving them to the airport by herself for the first time, which makes me a little nervous, but I’m sure she can do it.

I’m a little out of it.  Being out here keeps me feeling normal and when I have to be away for even a few days, I really miss you.  I’m down about some stuff that’s going on in my life.  It’s nothing Nick or the kids have done, but I still have to deal with it and I have no idea how.  Hopefully I can figure out what to do or maybe I’ll be able to just let it go.

I just want to thank everyone for being so loving and supportive out here. My family here feels more real than the people I see every day. You all mean more to me than you know.

Christmas 2.0 and 2.1 clearly were successes.
And I haven't heard about some teachers for a long time, so school cannot be bad too. Only a few more years to go.
Usually the best solution for all kind of problems, is just letting it go.

I feel the same about the blogland family. I find myself thinking and worrying more about people thousands of miles away that I have never seen, than about most people close by that I have known for years.

HI PK, sounds like you have had a nice family time enjoying your extended Christmas celebrations. I hope the things that are getting you down right now resolve themselves quickly and in a satisfactory manner.

I too feel the same about my blog friends. I miss everybody when I'm away from it too. It never ceases to amaze me the connections I have made and how close I feel to everybody here, who I have never even met. This family feels more 'real' to me than the people I see every day too.

I'm sure that we all know what we mean to each other.
I value this community highly.
Love and warm hugs,

In some ways, our blogland friends know us better than those closest to us IRL and are less judgemental and more supportive. Here we can let ourselves go, vent, rant, carry on til it hurts and we still feel that love coming back to us so it's no surprise we feel closer.

Happy you enjoyed the visit and that things went well for the most part and as to everything else, this too shall

Congratulations again to you and LJ and Colin.

(((hugs))) PK, I hope you resolve the things that are troubling you (....maybe Nick could help?).

I know what you mean about our chosen family here. They know our deepest hearts...far beyond the people we are born to.

PK, family we are. Hope that things work out and if we can help, write it down and you will get all the love and support you give us here in blogland. Hugs

So happy to hear that Christmas' 2.0 and 2.1 went so well.

You are right, the family here in blog land is sure something aren't they. Hope everything works out with whatever is bothering you. Let us know if we can help.

What a wonderful time, PK surrounded by those you love - just remember, we love you too. :)
I would be completely lost and sad without my blogging family. In so many ways, as was said above, you all know me more intimately than my friends here. In a more truthful way than my extended family.
I am quite mushy about you all!

I want to let it go, but it's not going. I'm feeling worse. I thank you all for being here for me.

The family time has been great. This will resolve eventually, I hope without permanent damage. I love that I can say anything I want to out her. Many time you all agree, but you don't mind fussing at me when you think I'm wrong. That's a special relationship.

I did love my holiday!

At 9:39 PM, Blogger PK said...

I feel we are the senior citizens here and there are wonderful people joining all the time.

At 9:51 PM, Blogger PK said...

It's strange but true - I know many of you know me better than those I work with and talk with daily. Thanks again for being happy for my boys

I'm not sure this is something Nick could help with. He would say to let it go, but, well, I just don't know. I love family you can pick yourself!

At 9:56 PM, Blogger PK said...

I know you would all be supportive and just knowing that helps me so much.

Christmas was great and the boys hope to be home for Dec. 25 next year. They tell be being in NYC it's always like Christmas is coming, but the day never arrives. You all help by just being here.

I'm know exactly how you feel. I'm the same away. And it was great being with my sister and family too.

PK,I am SO HAPPY you had some good family time with your grown children. That is wonderful to read about. I wish you the best in dealing with your other issues you mention. Thankfully we have our blog friends, as you say, to feel like another family and be supportive and loving. Just sending you a hug!

PK: You know you blogger friends will always be there for you. Bloggerland is like a like a family. Sending many hugs your way that everything will work out.


At 11:20 PM, Blogger PK said...

I appreciate the hug, I can always use one. All the children really do seem so grown up these days. But I really like the way they turned out.

I'm a little sad right now - without all of you out here I would be devastated. Thank you
