Hi Mags, glad you'll be around more.
Itchy, thanks for that long post, makes me think.
More and more as I contemplate what I want to "do with my life", people tell me how lucky I am that I don't have any responsibilities, no kids, no obligations to anyone but myself. I agree, I am lucky, I have many options open to me. But what they don't realize is that it comes out of years of being sick and unable to have anyone in my life, really. So while I'm glad to be where I am it's also with the knowledge that I'm kind of starting from scratch.
Again, a position I realize a lot of people would kill for.
I feel almost overwhelmed with choice, sometimes. For now I'm going to enjoy living a life that I've dreamed of many times in the past, and be thankful that I'm here, somehow. It has not been an easy road, but I'm getting to a place where I respect myself and want to do what's best for me. It's always been about chasing love, filling some empty space. I think it's time to just enjoy being on this "spaceship earth" and let all the other crap slide.

It's Friday everyone. Sweet, sweet Friday.

Hi Overs!

Glad to hear you are on the mend, Mags.

InPar, sometimes I think that too much freedom and too many choices can be overwhelming and paralyzing. I like your thinking about enjoying being on spaceship earth. Some of us find satisfaction in helping others or getting involved in our communities, etc. it doesn't need to be a direct f2f but can be in a supporting roll. That can add a different dimension to our lives.

I must credit our friend Itchy for the "spaceship earth" comment. But thank you Saskia.

SW your pug wizard picture gave me a good laugh.

Hi guys fly by post today as away to work shortly

Love the new avi Wolfie & the pic - the things people do to their pugs!

Drake I hope the good Lady O doesn't allow dressing up? Other than her formal robes and crown of course!

Remember your treats for the kids tonight 2treats per kid - which I think is a not bad exchange rate.

A rainy morning here in Milwaukee. Hope the little ones don't get rained out for trick or treat. Outside of Christmas, this used to be my favorite day of the whole year! We used to go all over town and wouldn't come home until our bags were full of candy.

Have a great Saturday, overs! And don't forget to set your clocks back (for those that didn't have to do it last week).

Oh gosh I can't believe Halloween is barely on my radar this year. How things have changed.
Have a great fun day though, all those who are celebrating and doing fun stuff. I'm moving. Which is pretty awesome. And nerve wracking.
Looks like snow here for the kids tonight. That's a bummer, I remember how much it sucked to have to put a big parka on over your costume. Kinda defeats the purpose! Or try to incorporate it into the costume, put it UNDER it somehow. Haha. Oh, memories.

HRH is highly opposed to it herself, but she enjoys a good costume on others. She does don a neck scrunchy to celebrate holidays. We have the scary Halloween one with bats and ghosts now.

Morning overs

Had not one trick or treaters last night! I bought goodies in for the occasion too!

Inpar all the best with your move. Things have a way of working out. You're doing everything right.

Love your picture with the two wolves and your avatar Wolfie.

You know, it's only since becoming sober and being responsible for myself I have one regret. I didn't have children. Didn't want them years ago, was too selfish, self - centered and I was scared I'd give them an unhappy childhood, as I had had. It was all about me.

Only now, now I've found this peace and happiness I've opened my eyes to life. I feel differently now. I'm not filled with grief and I'm not unhappy just sorry that I was so mixed up I stayed away from having a family. Such is life and I'm so pleased at least, that I don't drink and can see life clearly.

Have a good Sunday
