I just wanted to let you all know I am going to be taking about a week off from sending out any mail.

I just got word that the human remains found in North Carolina was in fact my friend. I need to take this time for myself and grasp the concept that he passed on. My heart hurts and I am left breathless.

I will be back. Thank you for understanding.

Take good care of you and try to stay strong...

Sassy, I am truly sorry for you and for your friend. Please be kind to yourself right now and take the time that you need. You are in my thoughts!


I have news that surprises me...I have just been taken off of my blood pressure medicine--after 24 years!! I have been dieting and exercising (successfully) and it is now taking me in a pill-free place. Here's the funny part; it is actually so low that if it does not stabilize I will need to do something to boost it! I never had a cardiologist talk to me about 'dangerously low' blood pressure! I guess all of those 86/54 readings had him a little concerned--but in a good way!

Oh wow! Good for you for getting that high bp controlled. As to the low bp, I have that! It's controllable, fortunately. My best advice is learn your doctors requested symptoms, and report them! Don't be a silly, USPkittie "Im fine, fine"......(im passed out). That was years ago, I actually listen now

Take care of you InsomniaCT!

Thank you ladies for all your understand and support. You are all in my heart. I am making it through my days but not without tears and sorrow. Taking this time to honor his memory is bringing me comfort. Hugs to all of you.

Thank you Angela

I am doing a little better today. I think it is finally sinking in that I will never hear his voice again. Because of the horrible circumstances around his death, it will be months before his remains will be released to his family because a full forensic analysis is being done to figure out what happened to him. I have realized that I need to keep my mind occupied so I don't continue to cry and just lay in bed. So, I am cutting my break short and getting back into this full force.

Starting today, my son has PSSA testing for school so I will be sitting in a hotel all day waiting for him to complete. I will have to do this for today, tomorrow and Wednesday. He goes to an online charter school. That is why he is testing at a hotel. So now is a great time to catch up on letters and cards.

InsomniaCT ... I am so glad to hear your blood pressure is down. That is amazing. But now you have to get it back up. You know, if it's not one thing, it's another. That's how it always seems to be. But way to go and stay healthy friend.

Thanks again to all you lovely people for the love, understanding and support you have shown me through this difficult time. My love goes out to each and every one of you!

Sassy, dear, please make sure to grieve enough about your friend. It's absolutely necessary and there's nothing wrong with it, okay? It's not a sign of weakness....

Thank you dear. I understand and will take time. I just can't stay in bed all day and cry. I have to get up and get things done. I am going to do something in his honor this weekend and it will be a good healing project for me. I know he would not want me to sit around and cry for him. That's the kind of person he was. He would want everyone to celebrate life and his memory.

Sassy, My hope is that your friend had the opportunity to be doing something that he truly loved when he passed away. No matter what, you need to grieve the way that makes sense to you. Doing something that honors his memory is a good thing--it can help you to feel more connected and also say goodbye.

The hard thing (for me) about grief is that it isn't linear; you don't make it to step 7 today, step 8 tomorrow and so on; today may be step 7 and tomorrow is step 2...with time it does become less painful. For now give yourself the opportunity to grieve, celebrate, remember, laugh and cry. Maybe now that we actually have something that looks like spring (here in the northeast), you can have other friends of his over and have a BBQ to celebrate the end of a miserable winter, knowing and cherishing a mutual friend, and saying goodbye.

Take care of yourself, Honey.

Yep, yep, yep, there are uber lots of stickies

Hope everyone is doing excellent. I am in stress-filled, major major busy week. This weekend I am Hospitality to every soul in a 13 story hotel. (800+ rooms, 3 people per room avg) Broken bits of me be damned, I have much groceries, many noms, wow!

The good news? I'm making liquid nitrogen icecream by the vat fulls. Huuzzzah!

Have epic moments everyone.
Ria

WOW! USPkittie... sounds interesting ... ? Hope all goes super well ... um with everything. Especially the ice cream ... Gotta love ice cream ...

Week chuck full of appointments for me ... doctor this, doctor that. Nope ... "you can't put a band aid on that doc, I've tried" ... FAIL! Everything about getting better makes me better ... not sure if that makes sense to anyone ... but it makes all the sense to me!

Hope all you ladies are enjoying the day ... each new day is a gift ...

Miss y'all ... I DO!

Goddamnit....I'm a bitch today.
I'm tired, one of my fucking cats was shitting in my bed earlier and I'm so fed up with some of the threads at PTO...

But the funny thing about life is: It goes on, huh? Still on vacation...
Get to talk a lot to some of my pals lately..that's a lot of fun...next year I'm going to enter the States for the first time in my life...
Until then I'm constantly running out of money or so..

Now does that make any sense? I don't think so...

Anyway, just wanted to wish you all a nice day..

Seems everyone is having ups and downs as of lately. Happy dance for the ups

As for myself, I am right there with Miss Meeow. I am in super Bitch mode. There is so much going on and every day more sh*t piles on. Just when I think I am caught up or getting ahead, here comes life's PIMP HAND! Bitch slap to the mouth. I know I will come out stronger in the end but damn, this chick needs a break.

I am also considering a major life altering decision. It's something I have been thinking about for a while now but it's so confusing. I'm not going to go into detail or ask advice on it because it's really only something I can decide. I think I just needed to put it out there that I am conflicted about a major decision so my mind could breathe a bit.

I hope everyone takes a moment to love themselves and have a great day. I may not be posting as much but I'm always lurking. I know, I'm such a creeper!

I hear you when it comes to up/downs. My "old" boss gave his "2" week notice (really only 1 lol) and his boss delegated my old boss's responsibilities to me.... not sure if that is good news.... or bad..... I get more work w/ no title or pay.

Hey...

Is everybody okay?
I'm going to visit one of my best friends today. I'm sooo nervous already, haven't seen him for months (even though he lives only 200 miles away)...

I don't know...did not feel much like writing lately. Had a few discussions with two of my boys...but at least we could talk the major things out on phone...
Well, one of them is talking about his crime in one of his upcoming letters and now he's afraid of me leaving...guys!

Yay! Some excitement for you today! Have fun at your visit!

Tomorrow is my friend's memorial service. My heart sinks lower into my stomach with each passing moment. I am driving there by myself and fear I will be too ipset to drive home. Deep breaths and lots of tissues!

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

I am glad that you are able to attend his memorial service. Hopefully this will help you finding closure one day...

You know, more than 8 months ago my love passed away...it still hurts like crazy, but it will get better...you will get better dealing with it. Cry as much as you want to cry...it helps...


I tried to work out earlier (pilates) but these damn cats don't like it..
They always interrupt me because they want to lick my feet...argh...
