wallowing

Everybody's heard of 'the calm before the storm.'

Then there's 'in the eye of the storm'.

But what do you call the dullness-by-comparison period after the storm?

My friend has gone.  The house is sooooo quiet.

When you've talked non-stop for 48 hours you'd think there'd be nothing more to say but no.

All I can think of is the 1001 things I didn't get to say (because I was saying something else at the time!)

I know I'll bounce back.

Probably tomorrow morning when my girls get all excited about the applique I spent this evening sewing onto their new undershirts.

But for now I am wallowing in my poor me puddle.

I want to move to Nagoya where the AFWJ ladies seem to have a blast- party a week it seems.

I want to conquer my fear of driving on the expressway so I can actually get out there and meet some people!

I want everyone to move to Matsumoto!

I want to eat too much chocolate, 
watch sappy romance movies 
and wallow in my poor me puddle.

Wallow, wallow, wallow.........

I'm glad you had a good visit with your friend.

And I agree, those appliques do sound cool! : )

I hear you! And frankly if you feel poor enough to be wallowing that sounds like a stupdendous way to do it! Chocolate, romantic movies....a perfect combination in which I rarely get to indulge these days. I am so glad that you have a friend here in Japan who is worth pining for after her departure. :)

It`s understandable...wallow away! Then, take your own advice and conquer your fear of driving on the expressway. It`s your ticket to friends, fun, and freedome!!!

I felt like that after mum's visit to Japan in 2006. I also felt like that when Sara left after her weekend stay!!

But as you said, you will bounce back, so chill out, watch those romantic movies, eat lots of chocolate and I'm sure in no time you will have another guest coming to visit!

Oh, and your right about wanting to move to Nagoya - me too!!

Although, I do like where I live... rofl!

Thanks for all the sympathetic support- just what every wallower needs! DH is one of those terribly practical people 'fix the problem or forget about it' so his answer was 'we could go to Saitama next weekend'. So sweet but not really practical!

The girls were no help as they were fellow wallowers, missing their live in playmates. :)

I have a new wallowing prevention/ minimisation technique though- be thankful for what you've got, not resentful of what you haven't. So I am appreciating the time we do get to spend together- and looking forward to meeting again!

Wallowing is usually a good way to start the "feeling better" process. It is always hard when you have had fun with people and then they go home.

ooohhh.. yes please move here, you don't need to live here to attend the parties = )


After wallowing you can't go any further but UP, so turn that frown upside down "giggles"

I'm a goof.
