Wednesday is "Quiet" Day.

The following quote is taken from the movie, "You've Got Mail. It's where Joe Fox flakes on going to meet Kathleen Kelley for the first time.

"I am in Vancouver.

He stops... Hits the delete button and erases the message.
He starts typing again:

JOE (V.O.)
I was stuck in a meeting, which I
couldn't get out of it, and there was
no phone.

He backspaces to erase "there was no phone."

Screen now reads: I was stuck in a meeting, which I couldn't
get out of it. Joe sits there thinking for a moment. Then he
starts typing.

JOE (V.O., cont'd)
The electricity went out in the building
and we were trapped on the 18th floor and
the telephone system blew too.

He stops and looks at it. Then he types:

JOE (V.O., cont'd)
Amazingly enough.

He sits looking at it.

Then he deletes the whole thing.

Sits looking at the blank screen.


Then he starts to type again.

JOE (V.O.)
Dear friend: I cannot tell you what
happened to me last night, but I beg you
from the bottom of my heart to forgive me
for not being there.

He deletes "for not being there."

Then types again, after "to forgive me".

JOE (V.O.)
-- for what happened. I feel terrible
that you found yourself in a situation
that caused you additional pain. But I'm
absolutely sure that whatever you said
last night was provoked, even deserved.
And everyone says things they regret when
they're worried or stressed. You were
expecting to see someone you trusted and
met the enemy instead. The fault is


As Kathleen and Christina walk down the street together.

JOE (V.O., cont'd)
Someday I'll explain everything.
Meanwhile, I'm still here. Talk to me."

Quiet: The state of little sound.

In case you haven't noticed, it's been pretty quiet around here at the RTH Times.

I'm at the height of my winter blah period and am still very stressed about life.

So stressed that I'm nauseated on a regular basis because I've made myself so sick about it all.

I know this isn't good for me. The last time I was this stressed was the month before I married Brandon. There was a ton of life changing events going on then as there are now. I was very happy to marry Brandon and am still very happy about that decision. But planning the wedding and family drama that went with planning the wedding sucks. I wasn't as nauseated when I was planning the wedding, but I still dealt with it.

Long story short, I don't really like to talk about it. But I need to talk about it. But I don't want to be Debbie Downer on a regular basis and right now that's all I've got.

So with that all said, I've chosen to get away from the blog for at least this week.

I'm still reading your blogs, just not commenting. I'm hoping to pull myself outta this slump soon.

I am finding good outlets. Thank goodness for Gilmore Girls. It gets my mind off things and I go to a happy place.

My puppy also makes me smile. I love that about animals. They know when humans need some extra lovin'. And she's been very happy to snuggle with me these past couple of weeks.

My husband has also let me cry and puke as much as I need to without complaining.

And by the way, I'd like to take this time to say: Seriously!! I get stressed really bad and it shows in the form of puking????!?!?!?





But as soon as I do it, I feel better.

I can handle the crying. I don't like it, but crying I can do. I'd be happy to cry every last tear I had if it meant I didn't puke.

And now, that this post has become way longer than necessary, I'll close.

I'm here. I'm still listening. When I start blogging again, it will probably be very opinionated. Just because I'm not blogging doesn't mean the ideas have stopped rollin' in my friends nor has Sarah Palin's mouth it seems.

Hope this finds you well friends.

With love,

I have wondered where you have been. I know that it is very stressful not knowing. I remember when TJ and I were waiting to see about grad school and law school. It was so stressful. It consumed my mind and my thoughts. Will be praying for you friend. Hey, at least you might loose some weight from all your puking! I know I know. Not worth it.
