I'm a Bad, Bad Diva

Much like this chandelier, I'm off-kilter. Tilted. A little bit skewed.

No, I'm not tipsy, drunk or stewed. In short, I'm on vacation. And I hope to have righted myself by the time you're reading this.

Will anyone be surprised if I admit that I haven't got a ready store of posts for you while I'm gone? No? Right! I'm a bad, bad Diva ... and its not because I don't care - I do. I really do.

It's mainly because in the weeks before I travel, I go crazy. And not the fun, hey-let's-do-shots-and-pretend-we're-25 kind of crazy either. I mean flat out, someone-call-the-authorities-lock-this-Diva-up-and-throw-away-the-key crazy.

Let's just say I have issues. I have issues with leaving my nest. Maybe its because I'm a Cancer, or because I'm a natural born worry-wort, but leaving home pushes every anxious button I've got ... to the extreme. The week before departure is a blur for me; a tortured haze of tears, Advil, and massive infusions of chocolate. That's just how I roll.

The only saving grace is that once I'm actually gone, I'm fine. I know I will relax and enjoy the holiday ... so long as I survive the 72 hours beforehand.

Suffice it to say that between crying jags, and what seems like 500 pounds of laundry, I haven't exactly found the time to write. Hang in there with me and I will return, sometime after Labor Day weekend.

Until then, be good - and if you can't be good ... call me, we'll go for drinks!


p.s. - Sadly, no, that's not my dining room. This picture was taken by mistake, in part of the building where I work. Kind of spooky, isn't it?

Where can I get a prescription (w/ refills, please) for massive infusions of chocolate? Sounds like a cure-all to me!

Hope you have a great vacation.

Hey Diva dear;
We readers don't care that you've taken a well-deserved vacation...just that you come back well-rested, happy and ready to post your adventures. Hope it's all going well and that you and the husband are enjoying every moment.

I, too, tend to fret before a vacation. You want things to go right. To be fun. Lucious. Memorable. And then a million things you never could have imagined make it all worthwhile. Bring us back some umbrella drinks!

Enjoy your vacation. You've earned it.

And even if you had put blog posts in the hopper, you wouldn't be able to answer comments, so why bother? Enjoy the rest and we'll see you when you're back.

Hope you're having a great time.

Ditto, I'm the same about leaving. Then when I get to my destination everything is fine. I'm just now getting back on track after a 4 day trip to Florida. Have fun and take time to smell the fresh air.

A while ago, I went on a 3 weeks vacation. You need that from time to time, to unwind, reload your senses etc.

Have fun!
