Lag Time

I'm so excited the lag time between what I'm feeling and letting it out is getting shorter. Yet another friend is having a baby. The most recent tally: One baby is now a couple weeks old, the twins are due Monday, and Cutiepie's mom is due in the spring. I am ok with where I am most of the time - sometimes it just creeps up on me. So, I'm going climbing tonight to clear my head - never mind the broken toe!!!

Ah, a baby boom booming all around you. I bet you are the coolest auntie ever.
Here's to climbing right out of any lingering sorrows.

Lag time can be a very handy thing.

I wish I'da found some earlier today, myself.

Congratulations all the way around to those folks who're being graced.

*hugs to you*

I don't call it "lag time", I call it "processing". But that might only be because I can only focus on one thing at a time - I'm told it's a man thing. I hope you enjoyed climbing with your broken toe. C:)

Everyone around me is having babies, too. It makes me happy for them, and happy that I am not having a kid!

Most of my friends are having babies too. And I had a dream on Tuesday night that my girlfriend was pregnant with triplets. I called her later. She's not.

Lag time - good for you! I think my lag time is getting longer. That should probably be a red flag, shouldn't it...

everyone around me is lamenting that their teenaged daughters just called them "bitch" to their face. i must be old.

Laura, well, I likely could be cooler. The pain in my foot washed that sorrow right out of my heart.

Mel, I know. It's finding the right balance of lag time that's important.

Craig - men do take longer to process. But generally it's a manageable timeframe. I'm talking a lonnng time here. Once I found out what movements I could make I was ok.

Suzanne, there must be something in the east coast water.

Squirrel, I guess 'tis the season for babies. What a scary dream! As for the lag time, well, depends. It could be a good thing.

Nah, you just have old friends. ;-)

Your lag time is climbing. My lag time is running. And I'm sure we both need lag time about different stuff and maybe one same thing - trying to find a lifelong partner in crime. Sigh.

What I mean by lag time is the amount of time it takes until I allow myself to realize and accept what I am feeling because of a particular situation.

My meditation/cure for the feelings is climbing.

And for me, since I just got out of a marriage, I'm in no hurry for another lifelong commitment. I do harbor the hope that I will find one thought. And the thought of dating is giving me the heebie jeebies.
