I’m going through a mild case of ‘pitypause’ again.

Not to be confused with menopause – there are no night sweats, but mood swings are similar.

Pitypause comes and goes – symptoms include sadness, insomnia, unusual desire for cake and decreased desire for conversation.  Which, for this Chatty Cathy is quite eerie to those around me.

Yes, pitypause affects others.

There is a cure.

It’s called ‘Count-Your-Blessings’.  It’s effective 99.9% of the time.

I was in danger once more of losing my last marble this weekend.  So I took action!

The marbles I bought a while ago,  to replace the ones I lost during my last bout of pitypause, have been safely placed in a happy looking bottle.


I’m keeping a close eye on them .  I think it apropos to place them next to light.  My marbles need all the positive energy they can get.

If  someone you know is going through pitypause – be patient, offer an ear, a hug and push cake at them … from a safe distance.
