Sorry I haven't posted in forever.  Life has been crazy.  I have been crazy.  I went to the doctor because I started to get hives and he said, "Maybe you've been under a little stress lately?"  Ahahahahahaha!  HA!  Ahem.  So after I could breathe again after choking on ugly laughter, he said, "Maybe try not to be so stressed?"  I'll get right on that, chief!

Anyway, I send you all ♥ and xoxoxoxoxoxo and I'll try to catch up with everything on LJ soon.  For some reason tumblr seems easier to keep up with; probably because it doesn't have nearly the level of engagement as LJ (which is obviously not a great thing, but certainly does make it easier to dip in and out of in times of high stress).

As my tiny contribution of seasonal content, I'll say that I've been singing, "This is Halloween!" ever since the ritual watching of The Nightmare Before Christmas on October 1st.  Only now I sing it "This is Penny-ween!" for our Penny cat, who goes all wide-eyed, tail-chase-y, pounce-on-her-bumblebee-toy now whenever she's serenaded with it.

xoxoxoxoxo to you!

Oh, you can just stop being stressed, simple as that! How funny that I didn't realize that was an option!

*Hugs* I was just thinking about you earlier!

I got our Mr. cat a proper adult sized Kickeroo and he is crazy for it. I don't know why I ever thought the little kitten sized one would be any good. (I actually forget when I got it, it might have just been for foster kittens.)

Also, I made the Butternut Squash and Caramelized Onion Galette from Smitten Kitchen and it is sooooooo good. So good. And not difficult, just fiddly and a bit time consuming. But worth it! :-)

*hugs hugs* YAY! Penny loves her kickaroo so freaking much; I'm glad your kitty boy loves his!

That does look delicious! I made a crazy time consuming lasagna last night that was super delicious, also featuring butternut squash! Roasted Butternut Squash, Rosemary, and Garlic Lasagne. I recommend it about 10000% x infinity.

I'll have to try that galette! You know what was weirdly refreshing about that entry? How few photographs there were, lol! I like a few tantalizing photos, but man, the scrolldown to get to the recipes on food blogs nowadays -- and get off my lawn, kids!

This has been the season of stress for everyone it seems! My work stress hasn't given me hives but it's sent my menstrual cycle into a whole new level of cray-cray. Where is the "stop the stress" button? Anyone finds it press it for me too, m'kay?

Ah, sorry you have work stress and menstrual suckiness! *squishes* For you, I shall leave a large plate of cheese fries!

I'm sorry life has been crazy and stressful. I hope it calms down soon.

Thank you so much! :*

Ha, I shall have to pass, as I CANNOT HAVE ALCOHOL FOR TWO WEEKS as part of this whole, "let's play guess why I have hives!" food-diary keeping experiment. DDDDDD:

Aaaack! I am sorry to have inadvertently possibly contributed to the whole hive situation!

No, no, no, I don't mean to make you feel badly! I'm just venting because I'm feeling whiny that I can't have anything to drink this weekend and for the next while. Pooh. *kicks things* You're fine! <3

Aw, you poor thing! And I totally know what you mean re: Tumblr. I'm pretty much never on it, but when I'm stressed/feeling like I have no energy for interaction I hang out there.

It's so easy to hop on and off the tumblr train for sure!

Heh, stop being stressed out! Get right on that. *g*

I agree about Tumblr. I've been hiding from LJ because of the interaction required (when that's usually what I ~want) because these last few weeks have been so busy that I can't interact anymore with someone, even if they're only online. I can still find time to scroll through my dash, though, because the most I have to do is like and/or reblog something, and you can tell by the number of reblogs (down a bit) that I haven't even wanted to be that engaged. o_O

Haha, right? *dusts off hands*

I get this so much. The interaction can be marvelous, but sometimes just too much to add on when there is lots brewing. *hugs* I know you have plenty keeping you busy with stress of your own.

Doctors can be a bit dim in that regard. I have rarely known anyone who was under a lot of stress who could easily do very much about it. While it is sometimes a choice, it's not usually the kind of easy choice like that of deciding between eggs or oatmeal for breakfast. It's usually more like give up my children? Give up the love of my life? Abandon my ill relative? Give up the career I worked 20 years to get somewhere with? Give up my volunteer work that is actually helping someone?

It's so true -- when stress is present in high levels, it's generally unavoidable, or at very least not easily reduced.
