Ch-ch-ch-changes!

Yes, I have been neglecting blogland again. I have good reasons.

#1- I've been self reflecting. I need to make some changes in my life. I mean if I am not happy alone, how can I expect anyone else to be happy with me? My job eats away at my soul daily. Don't get me wrong...I do enjoy teaching kids. But it CONSUMES every bit of me...emotionally, physically, and mentally most of the school year. I'm not your average class room teacher. I am a special educator, and I love my kids. Sometimes that love leaves no room in my life for anyone else. So...I'm thinking a career change is in order for me to have a life beyond my work.

#2- I'm still absolutely head over heels in love...with my dog! All spare time goes to him and our adventures in the dog park and PetsMart! I still haven't met anyone of interest at the dog park. I take that back. I've met interesting people, just not ROMANTICALLY interesting. I meet very nice young couples and elderly ladies. And before you ask, yes we go to a couple different dog parks for some variety.

#3- I've injured myself yet again. I over slept last Wednesday and was running late for work. I pulled into the parking lot just as 1st period was beginning. In my rush to get into the building, I just fell face down onto the sidewalk. No, I didn't trip...I was walking and then I was splayed across the concrete, breaking my phone, my pen, and my ribs. I continued to work Wednesday and Thursday in pain. Finally, Friday breathing became almost unbearable. I let HR make me a doctor appointment (yay workers' comp!). The doctor put me on work restrictions, but my administration said that I couldn't perform my duties with those restrictions. And now I have a forced vacation until the doctor releases me to work again. My friend, Angel and Demon, says that God sent an angel to trip me so that I could have a mental vacation. Should've had that knee surgery last week, as originally planned, so I could at least collect short-term disability!

#4- I've not met any men from online or elsewhere. As a matter of fact, I haven't even cared to think about dating, or even sex. I must be sick!! It recently just dawned on me that I've had no man or sex drive for several months. I blame it all on #1!

#5- My damn blog has been attacked by spammers!! Every time I log in, I have crazy sex sites that have left comments as anonymous users! Has this happened to anyone else? How do I shake them off?

Hey suga! Sounds like you needed a reprieve, we all do from time to time. Miss "seeing" ya :-).

Oh, I get those strange comments on my other blog. Not sure why they bother, but also not sure how to deter the bastards....

Yikes! Sorry to hear about your ribs...hopefully they get better soon.

I had to switch to a word verification system because of spammers. Haven't had any weird comments since I made the switch.

I get a sick feeling when I consider going back to school. However, more power to you if you go ahead with getting your PHD. I'm not sure how you are going to fit it in and around work. You don't have much time to breath as it is.

I'm glad your enjoying your new fur baby. I can't wait to meet him. Let me know when your fall break for 2010 is going to be and maybe we can plan for you to fly up.

I remember a time in the past when you were sex drive-less. Stress, I think it is all just stress and one huge drawn out mental fart. You know me, I think sex will fix everything (even if it is just myself I'm having it with).

Take time for yourself. You need to heal the outside and the inside. Huge cyber hug just for YOU!

It's good to "see" you too Curvy!

Thanks for the advice Chica!

Angel, I know school will be tough along with work. Well, it will be easier if I'm not teaching freshmen all day. But I have to do something to get out of the current situation! Otherwise, I will be in this same condition FOREVER!

you are absolutely correct in that you MUST love yourself first! I'm sure it's the reason I have had a lot of luck in dating. Men are second to me. :)

I'm dating a wonderful guy and we go to church together. I don't know if you're religious but there are always tons of hotties at our church. Try to find a contemporary church in your area and there will be men!

I've been hit by spammers too. Put a restriction on your comments that we have to type in an anti-spam word or something.

I always just delete the spammers, but you can use a Captcha, maybe?

I think it's normal to go through a funk every once in a while and not be interested in men/sex. But maybe you are sick :)
