Where The Hell Have I Been?

Three words: World Of Warcraft. Todd will not leave the computer now that he has his new game, World Of Warcraft. If he does leave the computer, Mason quickly takes over, as if they are working in shifts. Damn you, World Of Warcraft, damn you!!

...But even though he may sit at the computer a little too long (or a lot), I've been thinking a lot about how happy I am with Todd. Since I've had a bit of writers' block lately, I thought I'd give a little "thank you" to two of the people who helped me get things back to the way they are.

Of course there is my sister and her family. They are always there for me, so they go without saying. Everyone knows how much they have helped me, so I guess it's two other people.

1. Sarah. She spent a lot of time just being my friend and listening to me complain about how unhappy I was without Todd. Then she moved. Instead of fading out of my life, she made sure to keep current with my problem, and at one point, even gave me a deadline. She told me to fix the problem that night as soon as I got off the phone with her, and that she'd call me the next day. I didn't want to disappoint her any more than I wanted to disappoint myself. I didn't hear from her the next day, because I had spent that very night and next day with Todd. It was a good feeling, though, to look at my caller ID and see that she had tried to call...twice. Thanks for keeping me motivated when it matters most.

2. Jenny (my cousin). The two of us actually got to go out together one night, which doesn't happen often. Again, I was sad and missing Todd. She said something to me that was simple, but really made an impact, "You only have ONE life. This one is yours. You have to do what makes you happy." After I dropped her off that night, I called Sarah. We then had the conversation I mentioned above. That night it was fixed.

So, while there have been many people who were concerned and did more than their fair share to fix my life, those two were the ones who finally drove it home. Thank you both.

Dude, Where's My Sidebar?

Just kidding. I know where it is. Sarah knows where it is...she put it there. Other than that, how do you all like the new look?

Well, I'm on my way to the wonderful, fabulous casino...and note to Jen: It's not a problem if your bills are paid and you're only spending $20! Then it's called recreation. You should go once...then you can hate it.

A Little Something For All You Knitters

Look Who Hasn't Posted Since January






Apparently this is the team I'm on. I'm glad I'm on a team all by myself. Go Wisconsin!!! As soon as I get the camera back from the brother in law, I'll post the picture of THE HANDBAG I'll be working on...which is really a bag to put my knitting stuff in. Isn't it just like me to start the olympics late?
