Wow. It’s really been 3 months since I’ve updated this blog? No wonder no one reads it. Just wanted to give a shout out to my new bestie #JennyLawson @thebloggess ! She doesn’t know yet that she’s my bestie so please don’t spoil the surprise. I just finished her hilarious book #FuriouslyHappy. I know, I’m late to the party, but what a great book! It actually depresses me a little cuz I’ll never write that well, but I’m depressed all the time anyway (like any good writer worth her ink), so what’s a little more? Still, even tho I’m nobody, I still can’t recommend this work highly enough. The joke about the hampster still makes me laugh out loud (don’t criticize me until you’ve read it). #BrenéBrown wrote, “You’ll laugh, wince, writhe in discomfort, cry, then laugh again.” God bless her, but Miss Brown is clearly NOT mentally ill. I never writhed (wrothe?) in discomfort, nor cried, but I did commiserate, howl with laughter, and smile in sweet recognition when the darker stuff came. Thank you, Jenny, for telling me I’m not alone in that dark hole, for extending a hand to hold when things get tough, and for giving me permission to live–just the way I am.
