I need to start posting here again. So much has happened in my life ... and in your lives. I miss my friends! I always think I'll read everyone else's posts first and then I'll post something, but I never seem to get that proverbial round tuit. So I'm going to try to get back in the habit of posting first, and then try to catch up with everyone.

I don't know that I'll ever catch up with the last year or two of my own life. I have to learn to post shorter entries. Once I start writing I can go on for hours, and that's the problem. I'm going to try to post something every day, even if it's only a few lines and try to keep it to a few lines.

I think that means you're happy to see me posting again?
Apr. 18th, 2011 09:09 pm (UTC)
YES!!!!!! But you hadn't posted in over two years, so I never expected to see you back!!

Good, I'm glad to hear it.

Did we miss our dinner date?

Yes, we did. I hadn't talked to you since we set it up, but when I called you that afternoon to confirm you apologized and said you had to have "re-surgery" and were dopey from pain meds, and we'd talk in a week or two. I thought of you all that time, then got distracted by family health issues and personal health issues, and forgot.

Give me a call so we can reschedule!

Welcome back!

Thanks, Carol! I hope you and yours are well!

Oh, wow! I was just thinking about you and hoping you were okay... and here you are! *hugs*

Yes, this! I mentioned the lovely lady to my husband just yesterday and said, "I should call her!" I LOVE it when the universe aligns like this.

I am *so* glad to see you, Sunny!

I got a call a few weeks ago and the caller ID said only "Canada" and a phone number. I thought, "Could that be Shannon?!?!" But it was a telemarketer. :(

When things settle down here I'm going to get fiber optic service, which comes with unlimited calling to the US and Canada. But meanwhile I still have my same old long distance service, so give me a call! My number is still the same.

You changed your username! But one look at your journal and I knew who you are. :)

I've thought of you too, and of all my friends here. I dunno what's wrong with me. Self-destructive, I guess. Have to overcome that and get involved again, I've missed you! Hope things are going better for you than they were when I left!

Welcome back!

Thanks, Leslie! It's good to be back. I'm going to do my damnedest to fight the tendency to be reclusive that has developed in the last few years!

Good to hear from you!!!

Thanks, Libby! I took a quick look at your journal -- I'm so sorry to hear about the breakup. =hug= I didn't read enough yet to find out why, but if there's an entry or time period you want to point me to, please do.

I also saw what you wrote about your aunt. I don't know what the family is doing to her, but it sounds awful. I was widowed at 37, and I founded -- and led for over 6 years -- a peer support group for younger widows/widowers (which could have included her if she doesn't feel she fits in with the grannies). If you're looking for some insight into what she's feeling and experiencing and whether she's behaving appropriately for her situation, feel free to call or email me. I can't tell for sure without more information, but I'm willing to bet that the family is being much too hard on her.

good to see you back :) *hug*

also, scroll back a few entries in my journal - you'll know it when you see it!

SQUEEEE! As soon as I read that I knew exactly what I was looking for! Congratulations!

The son of a friend of mine got a job with Google last year (in NYC, where he wanted to be) and every time she told me about the latest news in his hiring process I thought of you. I'm so glad you finally made it! =hug=

thanks :) i'm very excited about it!!

Now that you'll be living in the US, I expect that eventually you'll visit Washington, DC, which is my neck of the woods. When you do, don't forget to let me know when you'll be in the area!!

Good to have you back!

Thanks, Phoenix! I haven't seen you around much lately -- are you downstairs most of the time? I don't see CZ much either these days; I guess he found someone else to handle coffee. I sure appreciated him providing coffee all those times when he couldn't get a volunteer!

A couple of other friends also said they'd thought of me recently. Maybe I somehow perceived that energy and that encouraged me to post? I don't believe in anything supernatural (or even that there is such a thing) -- but I do believe that there is much that we haven't discovered or even conceived of yet. "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

Anyway, it's good to be back. I'll try to follow your mother's advice!
