I couldn't make this shit up if I tried

So, my horrible, faulty picker struck again.
No move to CT. In fact, the visit ended prematurely and I found myself back in Cincy a day early.
But it's not all for naught.
Thank GOD for training - it's keeping me sane. And friends - they're keeping me company, keeping my head up, calling, texting, emailing, answering the phone when I was in hysterics. And FB - it's making me laugh. And dad - he got me on a flight home pronto. And mom - she listened to me babble. And my brothers - they're checking in on me. And the woman on the plane - she handed me tissues and encouragement. And him - he gave me a reason to finally quit a job I hate. And to the other woman involved - she totally opened my eyes.
I always say that everything happens for a reason. And I still believe it. My stuff is going into storage this week. And I'm headed to the beach to visit my brother before going north for Musselman. And then, who knows?

Life is a mystery. Not where I thought I would be either. Enjoy the ride and just play along. Things will turn around real soon. Sounds like you have some awesome support.

wow, that's a lot of chaos! I also firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. And it might take a while for the reasons to show up, but anytime something bad happens it always turns out better in the end. Maybe you need to come down south for a bit? Im' in the midst of a ton of chaos right now too. Feel free to call, text, or chat me anytime you want a friendly ear.

Hi Amanda. Whatever is going on, (sounds like relationship problems) sorry to hear that you are going through this. Hope you are ok. All that training should keep you strong.

RockStarTri said...

So sorry. That just sucks.

Things happen for a reason girl--you know that from reading some particulars in my blog--I know things will come to a full circle and leave you in a place with happiness, sanity, and understanding (and if not--then just some extra aggression to put into your kick ass training)

I don't know what happened, but I am so sorry. I'm glad that you have some good support there. Know that we (your followers) are thinking about you and wishing you the best.

OMG. What a fucking piece of shit! I really hate the saying, "Everything happens for a reason," but be glad you found this out now rather than later. You are such an attractive woman, I'm sure that you will have no trouble finding a hot replacement! Stay strong!

xoxo

Forget all of the negative crap. You're leaving Cincy - any idea where you're headed yet? What's something cool on the horizon that you can look forward to?

Mary IronMatron said...

You did hate that job! :) And you can go anywhere... that is amazing! (and scary, yes.) But there are some cool places to try. Hope you're okay.

sorry to hear of the chaos going on, and your so right- exercise and training REALLY help keep one sane at times like this. An exciting new chapter (or chapters) are on the horizon, and I'm sure it will turn out FABULOUS (there, I got to use the word fabulous today ;)
time for a long run with some good tunage on the ipod huh? melts things away nicely.

This may sound strange, but as a father I can't think of anything that I would rather do on fathers day than save my daughter, and give her the love and comfort she deserves. Kudos to your dad.

As bad as this whole thing turned out, you've managed to put a good spin on it by looking at the positives. Yes, this was for the best, it was just a really shitty way to have it happen.

Christi said...

Wow, sounds like a lot of chaos but a lot of great people to get you through it! Keep your head up and I will keep you in my thoughts!

Colleen said...

Big hugs! :(

Make this an adventure of a lifetime and you won't regret any of your decisions!!! (although you shouldn't anyway...)

Big Daddy Diesel said...

I feel sad for you and angry at him. Not to put it meanly, but I am so glad you found out sooner then later.

But, you have such amazing family and friends to help you through this, its good to her that they are taking care of you. Only time will heal this.

Amen. Everything does happen for a reason, and you sure as hell will come out stronger on the other side.

Hope to see you at Musselman. Come stop by the Smith Opera House in Geneva (that is where the race meeting is this year so you'll have no choice!) for the Musselman Arts Triathlon. I am one of the Directors working with Jeff. I will be playing piano on Saturday, and racing on Sunday.
