Going offline for a few days

I’ve finally reached the end of my ’emotional rope’ today, and decided that I just want to go away for a few days and act like an ostrich, stick my head in the sand, and let the world go by. I’m OK, really, but just feel emotionally drained from all the stress I’m under at the moment.

Today was the final straw when I went out to a dead car before work – another $67 that I don’t have later, I reinstated my RACV membership and got my car kickstarted again, but obviously things are more serious and I have to take it to a true mechanic and get it looked at. It’s possibly either the starter motor or, hopefully, just the car alarm system playing up and draining the car’s resources. Today at work I just used the key to lock up and it’s been starting up fine … fingers crossed that’s all it is. Anyway, I’m not taking any chances and I’m taking public transport to work for the next week. Luckily I’m on ‘normal’ shifts for the next 8 working days, so that’s an option.

I burst into tears this morning before the RACV man came … then every time someone asked what was wrong this morning at work I got all teary again – all highly unusual for me. The financial stress has finally worn me down. So, if I’m not online for a few days don’t worry – I just don’t feel like blogging right now, and I hate being miserable online … I’ll be back again when I’ve perked up a bit.

See you again soon 🙂

  1. Probably a very good idea to take things a little easier and look after yourself, Anne. No one needs the added stress of car troubles and more $$ spent on repairs. Sending you warm thoughts!

  2. Sending you lots and lots of hugs hon.. You’ll be missed, but take time to recharge and re-evaulate and we will all be here when you get back.


  3. Oh Anne – what can I do to help… Please ring me – I don’t like ringing you as I am always unsure if I wil wake you… It sounds as though you could do with a check up as well… You take care now… Lots of love and hugs… Sharon XXXXX

  4. Hang in there Anne … I am sorry you are dealing with auto challenges. Those are the worst. (Anne)…another cyber hug for you.

  5. Hi, first time commenting in your blog although I’ve been reading for a while.

    My friend was having lots of trouble with her car battery. Turned out the little light in the boot was running 24/7 and once that was repaired the car went back to normal.

    Crossing my fingers it is something that simple for you.

  6. Oh no! You need hugs and margaritas! I hope you realize quickly that you miss us (and we will give you all the love and support you need)!!!


  7. Anne, it’s just awful that you’re still dealing with electrical issues with your car. So often these things are just a quick fix, once they figure out where the problem is. Hang in there and be good to yourself! {{{{{Anne}}}}}

  8. When it rains, it pours, indeed. My poor twin. It breaks my heart to read of your troubles. I wish I was there to help. *hug*
