Thanks for the good thoughts guys.

I feel you, purps. Last week I was early to work everyday, worked on the house, was really productive. This week, making it to work feels like an accomplishment.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Mornin' everybody. Happy hump day.

Oh Purp. Fast food? I do weekend food prep. That way I have homemade fast food for the week! I do love Taco Bell Gorditas though. With the fry bread.

Got my startin' fluid and gettin' ready for the day. Have good one friends!

^^^Lol you guys^^^ plus yesterday I took an unnecessary trip to the post office ~ after hours thinking I could use the 24 hr self-service kiosk to send some packages out...."Temporarily unavailable due to technical difficulties"

Just some mindful crap....the normal funk I get into when I haven't been exercising regularly....or maybe this is the life that I deserve....today I'm scheduled to get training on how to operate a forklift....

This sounds absolutely terrible - I hope the pain goes away pretty quickly. I know that many of us on here try to stay away from the strong, addictive pain meds - guessing that is you.

I hear the rest of you on the technology frustration - experiencing that in spades lately.

Purps - FORK LIFT FUN!!!! Awesome stuff

Yeah, I am sick as a dog from OTC pain meds. And gosh this hurts.
I won't get anything stronger though, ever.....I can't. As the day goes on it just gets worse and worse.

Repeat post...all went to plan...one semester off for surgery, then

Sincere thanks folks. That is one thing I would not have accepted last year- positive feedback.
Well space cadets, today was THE day..not as profound as seeing my son, but one I have been working towards for 7 months for.


I started art school today.
Life drawing (nudies). My anxiety was up gewtting there- but a student from last year saw me and came up to hug me (!!), several others also said hi, that I am looking well- were interested in my recent history, two agreed with each other- thast I look happy, whereas last year I did not.

One lady is going to miss some lessons for work, and announced to the teacher and class she would get my email and I can be there as a resource. I did not mind, apparently she saw something trustworthy in me from the class we shared last year. I did 'warn' the lecturer by phone of memory and pain and burns, and I coped really well, considering the anxious piece of wobbly jelly I was last year. I kept pace, did not forget anything and understood when the lecturer helped me along.

I dun good folks.

I hope anyone who is not feeling at peace and healthy with stuff- gets what they need.

Too tired to be profound.

Dang, PHX. It sounds like the pieces are falling where they are supposed to. I'm really happy for you.

Sometimes life gets in there too, but we have found that we can survive that too. Go figure. I feel like we are growing up or something.

Have a great day, my March friends.
