Too quiet, I know I've had some login issues (I swear I logged in - but no, it did not take it seems), people are busy, the site is slow, everyone has too much stuff going on IRL, blah blah BLAH.  I get it - I do.  But "understanding" does not equal "happiness" in this instance.

<shakes fist>

So hey!  Let's talk!  You can tell me I don't know, whatever you would like to.  How you are, where you are, what's going on, etc.  Or you can take the easy route and just play along with the title of the post instead.  Or you could do both!  It's totally your choice!  And I may even be able to resist making the buzzer noise if you choose wrong!  (KIDDING!)

What is your favorite or best whatever?  Movie, song, book, quote, inspirational saying, item of clothing, facet of your personality, animal, word, food - whatever!  GO CRAZY!  BE DARING!  THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!

Um...so I live in New England, you guys know that, right?  And while our winter hasn't been too awful, it's still WINTER, and the last week or so has been insanely cold, and I've spent possibly a little too much time holed up inside and not going outside unless absolutely necessary - and maybe, possibly, I am beginning to feel a tiny little bit of cabin fever, and am close to SNAPPING.

This is not a good time to be all silent, I'm just saying.

Come out, come out, wherever you are...

Kim

(I feel guilty for threatening you up above there, so I feel like I should point out that me snapping in this situation really only amounts to me being far more chatty than usual.  Um, so not really a super threat or anything.  Except maybe for those who do post in because possibly I might end up like, POUNCING on them or something.  Oh hey - that's the way to spark some conversation, right?  WHO WANTS TO GO FIRST?)

(HELP ME.)

It all gets better, Tam.  You'll see. Time will do its work and you'll get through this.

Our small boy was a shocker, too - but the very nicest sort of surprise.  :)

Hugs,

Kim

BC BABY!

There you are - I was thinking about you, wondering how you're doing.  :)

Yes, my beloved Pats - who unfortunately let me down this year.  But that's okay, we can't win them all, and we'll have more chances in the future I'm sure.  It just wasn't our year, that's all.

I'm excited for the Super Bowl this year.  I have no skin in the game, so it won't make me anxious to watch, and I have really been enjoying watching the 49ers this year - that QB kid is something special, and really fun to watch.

But, as always, all of the Super Bowl excitement I have is tempered with immense sadness that it's already the end of the season, and that there are too many months until it comes back in the fall.  *sob*

I'm happy you popped in, BC - I hope you're doing okay, my dear.

RBM,

I remember that I always thought that she was so pretty, and she seemed so nice, too.  :)

I read that her daughter has taken up Lambchop nowadays.

I'm putting along with life. Some days are better than others and I don't cry anymore. I look forward to the day when I do not think about him. The little guy was quite a shock, at least for me. We were married for 22 years when we had him! I had my hands full with the first 3 at the time and didn't think I could handle one more thing. In all honesty, he is the best thing to ever happen to our family. I could have had 10 kids if they were all like him. What a blessing!

Hey Kim! Been awhile since I've been on..., too much trouble...Grrr. So you're from New England? As in the Patriots? That would be my fav football team :) My fav day of the year would be Superbowl Sunday....So, as u can see..., I'm giddy about now :) yes that "m" word is creeping in a little too close for comfort. Sleepless nights make for a not so happy mom/wife, but they deal cause I tell em the worst is yet to come...Lol. I'm hanging in there with XAP. He's had changes in his life which he flaunts all over the dept, so it's hard to escape at times. But I played at work, so now I have to deal with the fallout. Happy Super Sunday to everyone! Go Niners!

Shari Lewis, was an attractive lady.  Gorgous red hair, before red hair was poplular.

If she was living she would be 80 yo, unfortunatly she passed away quite some time ago.

She was a joy to us youngsters. And...........maybe even a dream for a young boy.

We only miss what could have been. I know I don't miss what it really was.

RB love -

What a great poem that is.  I love it.  :) 

YAY for a home day for you!  I am happy that you were able to do that for yourself today.  And I think it also speaks to the idea of trusting yourself, too - you allowed yourself to take the time you needed today, without feeling upset or torn or guilty about it.  :)

Won't is a different sort of thing from can't - for sure.  I get what you're saying about the difference, and I think that it is a big corner to turn, so that's awesome, RB.

I know the text was a setback for you, or that you felt as though it was.  But, you are still maintaining forward progress, so maybe, it was not as much of one as it initially seemed. 

You're doing just fine, RB love.  And you will continue to do fine.  I know it.

Rainie love!

I am SO happy for you with your project!  I think this whole experience will end up being SO good for you, sweetness.  It sounds as though it is already giving you a bunch of positives, that is awesome.  Yes, I know - I am sure there are some not-so-awesome things about it, it's a lot of work and takes up a bunch of time that you probably don't really have to spare.  But, it sounds as though the trade-off is very worth it, and I hope things continue that way.  :)

I like your perfect day idea, I may have to steal that one for myself.  (In my DREAMS.)

Hi so glad!  :)

So it seems as though at least a few of us are "ladies of a certain age" and are going to be dealing with the "m" word stuff (or already are).  I don't like this, any of it, just figure I will put that out there.  But we can commiserate with each other, right?  :)

What did you think of The Hobbit?  Did you like it?  I did.  It felt like being able to visit with some old friends, and it made me smile.  :)

I remember Lamb Chop!  And you can call me Kimmychop if you want to, I will answer to just about anything.  LOL

I am a nicknamer myself.  I can't ever seem to find just one and stay with it - I use a variety.  My small boy has a dozen or so names that I call him (all very sweet ones, of course), and he learned very early on to answer to all of them.  He is at the age where he is beginning to pretend that he doesn't like them, but I know that deep down, he really does like it when I call him things like um, "pookie" and "sparks" (short for sparkle-boy, of course).

Um...yeah.  I have a problem.  And you think that you are weird?  HA!

;)

Kim
