Oh, I'm okay. He doesn't live on my block, fortunately. And to be honest, the people he lives beside aren't very nice, either.

I predict he'll be back in the pokey or the booby hatch before long. Of course, I might be there myself (booby hatch), so I sure hope I don't get him for a roomate. Crazy women and crazy men are generally separated, right?

Sorry about your possum situation. I feel bad for the possum --- I think they're neat-looking. But a dead anything makes a mess.

Why does such a wonderful country have to have such an awful climate?

Canada, I love you, but you're too cold.

I could do great things if I got it. Great things, I tell you. Things I couldn't do without it.

Okay, guess I should stop bargaining with Fate...



Does Fate like rainbows?

This guy...he could hook you up.

Am I crazy for wanting to apply for an internship for something that I have no plans of going into (most of the internships more or less revolve around hospitality), just because I'd get to speak French? And live in Switzerland for a month? And because it sounds like fun? Oh, and because meals/housing are paid for?

Crazy? No! Adventurous? Yes! Go for it!!! What incredible stories you'll have to tell your children and your grandchildren for years and years to come! Do it do it do it!!!

Well, well, well. I see you've returned, Mr. Frosty. Not looking so golden right now, are you?

Hah.

My mom told me to think of it as my grandmother thought that my birthday was a great day. A day that she can finally rest and go to heaven.

While I don't really believe in heaven, I appreciate the idea that she thought of it as a great day to have some peace.

I still have some issues with my lack of seeing her, but then again... I'd probably be mad I saw her and left before she passed. That I didn't spend enough time. I will always have regrets, but she knew I loved her. And I can't dwell on the regrets. I should dwell on the great things.

Random lady at Panera Bread: "You have beautiful eyes. I noticed them from across the room."

Wow! Thanks, random lady! And to think I thought I looked horrible today. I needed some cheering. I didn't get the job I wanted. Bummer...

Love it! You deserve it. But I completely understand how you feel. You're still that same person 50#s ago on the inside of your head in those instances.

eche & phoenix, I have to give most of the credit to my husband. Without his support and constant motivation to keep me going I may have given up (I'm gooood at making excuses!). I hate to even say it, but I did it the good ole' fashioned way...diet and exercise. I changed how I cooked and what we ate and I got off my lazy rump and exercise 5 days a week (30 minutes treadmill and some light weight exercises). A few months ago I started counting calories and that jump started about 15 more pounds to depart it's comfortable spot on my azz. I'm sort of stuck again and would like to lose about 15 more (uhhh, hello, it's the holiday season!), but I'm so thankful to be able to shop in the misses section again I'm ok where I am too.

If I can do it...mercy, anyone can. I hope I can help someone one day like my husband helped me.

And thank you both!!

Ohhhhh no, I feel like a moron just typing it in this one! It's a hard thing because you're proud of yourself, but holy crap you don't want to be that annoying person who won't shut the heck up about themselves. My main motivation is hoping it would inspire someone else that they can do it too! Which again, is annoying. You know how some folks give you the side stink eye like you're bragging on yourself and they're thinking "I wish she'd shut the hell up already."
