It's Not You....

Since most of my life at the moment consists of all things bathroom-related (delicately getting in and out of bed to go to and from on my walker, stuffing myself with all things fiber to try to "make things happen" -- and being continually disappointed with the results), I am going to step back from Dating is Warfare for awhile. Unless you guys really want to know about my bathroom habits, pill intake, and nap lengths, and I suspect you don't.

Judging from my last posting - and the fact that I even thought it appropriate to post at all-- and my overly sensitive reaction to people's comments and opinions, I think it's time we take a break until I'm in a better place. Nothing personal. It's not you, it's me. I promise, I'll call you soon.

If you really miss me, I will be posting here and there at my ChickenheadsKnit blog since knitting will be my new best friend once I get the bathroom thing settled and I stop having double vision from all these painkillers.

Otherwise, dismissed.

*Thanks to those of you who sent me supportive messages this week. Very thoughtful (and helpful).

Wow - I just read the comment that upset you, and I have to say that I completely disagree with her concerns about the hip shower. I am currently planning my bridal shower, and can assure you that my fiance hasn't the slightest clue as to what normally happens at a bridal shower(and quite frankly he couldn't care less). That doesn't make him or Wine Guy any less of a partner - it just makes him a guy. We can't expect guys to think the way we do, and we can't expect them to demonstrate their love in the same way that we do. I don't really know if Wine Guy is ready for a commitment, or what you should do about your relationship but I don't think its fair to hold this against him.

I wanted to wish you the best of luck with your recovery, and hope that all goes well for you with whatever you choose. We'll miss you, but you should take all the time you need to recover.
