Monday Musings

Confession: last week was really crummy.  I've obviously known for a while that a move back to the States was in the cards, but publicizing it on the internet made it incredibly real and close in a way that it hadn't been before.  So I spent most of the week wallowing in bed, picking fights with Jon, eating pizza and take-away, and generally feeling sorry for myself.

Sometimes you've just gotta do what you've gotta do.

But I declare here and now that I am done wallowing and that I will own the rest of my time here in London.  I declare it!

I have something planned for every day this week - I go back to work next Monday - including tea and a wander at the V&A with a visiting friend this afternoon and lunch with a new blog friend on Wednesday.  I cannot wait to get out of my house and enjoy all that this city has to offer in these early blossoming days of spring.

Jon and I are going to make our own bucket list of things we want to do together before the end of May -  of course I'll share it with you, dear readers.  And I will devote myself more wholeheartedly to you and to this blog, which I'm afraid has suffered a bit as I've toured through the doldrums.

Therefore: onwards and upwards!


  1. You're not alone in the wallowing boat, I was right along side you. But you so right, the best thing to do is to pull yourself out of it and do some fun things. And look at the weather this week too! Oh Betsy, don't worry. You're not making the wrong decision, its the right one for now until you figure out your next step. Chin up, love.

  2. Be sure to visit the Chelsea Physic Garden if you haven't already. It will be wonderful now. Love you!

  3. I think we all need those times where we feel down and out, and it's hard to remember it is okay to feel that way...we've all had our moments during emotional times! Enjoy London. That pajamas quote is too funny x
