OMG I'm so excited that people are still here who remember me! Cookie, I sure thought about you over your anniversary, and even though we haven't talked in awhile, I REALLY missed getting to see your beautiful face & your super-cool hubby.
Sky, Maggie - I'm going to try to at least say 'hi' more often...I have missed you all so much. I love that I've found a few ppl on facebook, but even on that I hardly ever write much in one sitting. And yeah...I'm still in Bullhead. Still hate it...LOL, but it's better than Toilet City...err....I mean "Las Vegas". View Thread
ugh! i don't remember how to use this board, but i stepped away for coffee, came back, hit refresh, and now can't find what i was reading 3 min ago! AM I AN IDIOT OR WHAT???? I don't remember the title and didn't catch who posted it...so then i look for my post and "nada". I give up...going back to bed with pain meds & a blindfold so my eyes think it's still nighttime.View Thread
oh, and yeah - you can carry a gun into starbucks, but legal medical marijuana users will still be prosecuted by maricopa county pig-sheriff. smart state we live in, eh? love you cooks. gods i hate it here.View Thread
it's so hard typing much anymore, but i think about you guys all the time, and reallly miss everyone who isn't able to make it over to FB. i haven't checked email in months bc it's so difficult to get through & try to reply. i miss being able to sit up and wriet like i used to and post every day here. i hope everyone is doing well, and if anyone responds, i hoe i can find this "discussion" again in the feed. lol
oh Cookie!!!! I am so sorry to hear that you have yet another painful and miserable health problem on top of everything else. I was so hoping to find you feeling better. I've missed you like mad too. I had been trying to call you, but I've been a complete troll about email...haven't even checked it in I don't know how long. I do facebook b/c my kids are on it, but other than that I just sucked big time re keeping in touch. I hope you don't hate my lame-flake azz. We moved a few months ago, then had such terrible wifi that we'd go as long as weeks with no connections that would last longer than a minute then drop. I wanted to incinerate Mohave County and dance on it's ashes i was so mad..lol. We went out and bought a whole new gigaplexy-fi-thingy that seems to be pretty smokin' so far.
My gosh I'm sorry you aren't feeling good at all. I wish I could help. Luv you bunches. ~ SView Thread
Hey all my old bp friends...I know it's been sooooo long, but I've been thinking about you all for quite awhile now, so I told myself that today is the day. I went OOC for so long after my sis died that once I realized how long I'd stayed away from the board, the more self-conscious I felt about coming back again. (like..."everyone's gonna think i'm so rude"...or "what does SHE want?"...and kinda similar things in that vein).
I decided to just suck it up and see though, because I have to say...I am convinced that NOT posting regularly and staying in touch w/ my pals here has had at least something to do with my significant lack of progress or even feeling like much other than human flotsam. When I isolate, boy do I go all out. The last year has really taken the cake though. I wonder if I won the title? Or earned a black belt?
Anyway, for me it's been pretty much status quo as far as bp, pain & the other issues. I've hung out quite a bit on facebook, because that's where my kids are all the time, along with a bunch of my cousins, and lots of people I'd lost touch with over the years. I even found that my great-aunt, my grandma's youngest sister and last surviving sibling, is on FACEBOOK! Not only that - she is a wiz and master of almost every freaking game~~~ How cool is that, when a 70-something woman kicks butt in both farmville AND mafia wars? She's awesome.
Right now I'd really just love hearing how all of you are and have been.
GRRRR!!! Now tell me this doesn't suck - I had a whole reply to everyone all typed out, and even remembered to "control/c" so I wouldn't lose it....but what do I do??? I hit DELETE by mistake, so it disappeared anyway! So now I'm too irritated to even try to re-type it or remember what all I wanted to say, so I'll just let it go with the "thank yous" to everyone for your support and for being the bestest
Oh yeah, and if this isn't one of the all-time thrills of phenomenal proportion, I don't know what would be - I just bought a pair of Via Spigo black leather boots, box and all, with the "clearance" sticker still inside the left boot (that's right - brand new!), clearance price - $279, retail $429. What did I pay at the thrift store, you ask...2 bucks. That's right - 8 quarters. 10 dimes. Yes, it's true. I confess. I'm a labelslut. Pitiful, eh? Yeah... But I'm so damn happy I could sing. And do the Snoopy dance all day long...or at least until I have to leave to go to the tdoc today.
(doing that virtual "walk of shame" back into class after skipping school for months now) hope nobody minds
wouldn't it be cool to rename this board "BP-A-Go-Go"? No? okay...sounded good in my head for a bit...
i'm so sorry i've stayed away without any contact for so long, but for some reason this morning, after i decided to come back and at least say 'hello' and 'how's everyone?', my wireless is being a hosebeast.
i've missed all of you very much. i fell into such a funk after my sister died that i still can't seem to pull myself out of. don't know why some people seem to set time limits on you based on what theirs might be given the same. Yanno?
ugh...wish i had more to say at the moment, and hopefully i'm finally ready to jump back in with ya'll, albeit slowly, methinks.
weather? 70s and low 80s.
(you know i can't resist throwing in a cheeky line whenever one pops into my head)
hugs & muahs to all who want them, regards and blessed be to everyone.
I just want to tell everyone how much I've appreciated reading your thoughts and sentiments regarding my sister. I know I have been terrible about writing back or replying to the boards. I don't handle death well...I never have, and never seem to no matter how much time passes. With my own sister, it's still unimagineable to me, often to the point where I don't believe it really happened. I can convince myself of as much in minutes when I think about it enough.
Her funeral was yesterday, and I'm still pretty shaken. However, all your words and hugs have meant the world to me this past week. I can't thank you enough for being such dear friends.
