Where Did Everyone Go? Chanel. Blogging. Tissues, Lots & lots of tissues.

I blame the contents of this post on my cold, and take no responsibility for what follows:

I came across some beautiful images today on Bryanboy and Stylebubble. I pulled one from Susie's page, it's the awesome bag. As I was watching the Chanel video that Bryan posted, I started thinking about where my life has been and where it is now. I'm at a point now where I know that I will never again have the fabulous opportunities that I had when I was younger. That's not necessarily a bad thing, it's natural. My age is showing more and more all of the time, it's harder to do things that were never a challenge to me before. C'est la vie.
Most people that I meet today would never suspect how choc full my life has been with adventure, traveling, art, clothing, makeup, parties, ect., ect., ect. Looking back, I'm glad that I always put my children at the forefront of it all and chose the simple life......the really simple life.....ridiculously simple. And I have a very good man.
See that photo of me? That was 20 years ago, before Chanel, before Dior, before Entrecasteaux. I was content to be a "cheerleader" then, and I'm happy to be one now. But today, with my horrible cold, I'm feeling a little blue......a little isolated & removed. Stop crying, look, here's a tissue.
I miss my blogger bad girls:
Girl Interrupted
Vic of What Were You Thinking?
Prunella de Ville
Phat Mama
Lulu's Sandbar
I'm probably forgetting a few, d*mn cold.
Where is everyone? (Stop hogging the tissues, save some for me)
And why don't my followers comment anymore?
This is my pity party, and I'll cry if I want to. After all, isn't that part of blogging?
Shed some light, be brutally honest. And while you're at it, could you open up another box of tissues?

I have been reading blogs regularly still, just haven't been posting or commenting as much.

Like I said in my post today, I have lost a bit of my 'mojo'.

I am feeling a cold coming on too. And it's not cool.

Erin, I guess it's just that time of year, for colds. I am feeling a bit better, but get a little dizzy whenever I stand up. At least my throat isn't burning anymore. Two boxes of tissues so far, and counting.
Coldeze helps. And decongestant.
Thanks for commenting. Hope your mojo comes back soon.

Rain makes me sad and sluggish : (
But I do love that picture of you, from what I've seen, you have always been so beautiful.

Karli, I can't imagine you sluggish. Mellow maybe, but never sluggish.
I can't believe how much rain we've had, but I'd rather be sick with it raining.
Thanks for the compliment. xo
