Haha!!!!! I have a friend like that! We should give them each the others number and let them at it

(((hugs))) to you and Fifi, too, Juana.

my dad died over 11 years ago, and there are times when it still feels pretty fresh.

((((X,Juana,Rou))))

In unrelated news, I am not looking forward to getting up at 5am.

Aww. I'm so sorry ((((b-wavy)))). That is tough.

I was told that things wouldn't seem real, for quite some time, by many people. And that it will hit you hard, at different moments, for many years to come. I believe it. It's natural to think of things you want to say, ask, do and then think... Wait.

My dad died 4 years ago, this past March. Yes, it does seem pretty fresh at times.

Fifi, I am here for you if you ever want to talk.

I hate that so much

My Oma passed away this past Christmas Eve. I still drive past her apartment and go to call her to see if she's home and if I can pop in.

Typos. How do I type the word but when I meant to type the word plus? That is the one thing that baffles me the most about my typing. It's not just a few times that I do that. I could or just take it as something I need to work on.

People going back and picking apart my sentences actually helps me. I do have a lot of knowledge to share but it doesn't always come out sounding knowledgeable. I totally get how that is off putting and confusing. Who wants to try to translate a bunch of well meaning gibberish?

Sometimes there is more underneath the surface than appears at first. I feel like a fledging learning to fly for the first time. It is a new and often terrifying thing to try to interact with other people. But I just had a lightbulb moment...most people many not understand me but do 'get' me when they know me.

I have found this to be true.

It bothered me to no end that my father wasn't alive to see Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows."

Well, I got a lot done this weekend, but then I fell asleep at a weird hour: five o'clock on a Sunday.

Oy.

I should have worked this weekend after being out of the office for 3 days last week. But I did not. I do not want to go to work tomorrow. Yuck yuck yuck.

On another note I think our industry is picking up. In the past month I have had 3 headhunters contact me. I am not looking but it is good to know the job market might be getting better.

Hugs to all who have lost someone! It should also be said that there will come a point when you'll have lots of lighter moments as well. For a long as I remember, my mom had a habit of writing her name on stuff in permanent marker - I guess from years ago when you'd lend stuff to other people? She *really* wanted to make sure she got her stuff back! A few days ago I ran out of masking tape and remembered I had brought a roll from her house when we cleaned it out last year. I found it and when I went to get some off the roll, there was her name written inside the cardboard tube. Masking tape, people! I just had to laugh...

Probably the best episode of Downton Abbey in a long long time.

That was difficult to watch. Superb acting by Sybil, Cora, Tom, Thomas and Violet.

My mom died 21 years ago but I realize everytime that I look in the mirror she isn't gone. I see her looking back at me the older I get.

The Steel Magnolias remake has been on so many times and I'm yet to watch the whole thing. I love Queen Latifah.

Who am I trying to kid? Maybe I am just an immature, naive jerk who isn't capable of learning or growing. I'd do better to keep my mouth shut rather than show my ignorance.
