oh yes, good old friends are one of the life's most wonderful treasures.......sounds like such fun Ruth!

Oh Ellis! I thought I was the only one who felt this way.......I sometimes crawl in bed with a book and she will come and jump on the bed and want to chat with me and I will think on one hand "sheesh......I need to be alone", then that makes me feel guilty! so I end up having her lay down next to me with her own book - sort of a compromise, I guess.

I just don't want her to complain about me to a therapist one day when she's an adult!, lol - but maybe all people do that!


Thanks again for listening.

Terri

Glad you got back with your friend Ruth! But it's a good job you didn't go to Dim Sum or Ellis and I would have been mad that you went without us !

Terri-BELIEVE me, you aren't the only one!!! I need "me" time, even if it means staying up until 3 am to get it!!! Also, I have said things that had me thinking, "That's one for the therapist in 10 years." before I was even done saying it!!!

Ellis-Bad year I know, but think how much better it is NOW than it was just under a year ago..... (still 5).....and it is going to keep on GETTING better!!!

Ruth-Glad to hear you had so much fun!!!

Mauvais-How are you doing sweetie? Missed you.

Yeah, Terri... Dentrassi is another prime example of the "I love you kids but get the **** away from me right now" Mom.
She stays up until 3, I get up at 5.

Funny you should say that...I do the exact same thing with MY daughter! I was in bed last night with a book. DH was at band practice. DD came into my bed and was unusually chatty!! (in other words, telling her to read with me wasn't going to cut it) It took all I had not to say, "Get out of my bed, I'm having a quiet time!!" I lay there juggling between having a nervous breakdown for lack of "me time", and hurting my already psychologically damaged daughter. I gave her half an hour before sending her off with much love and many hugs.

She's already dumped her shipload on the psychologist. If she has more to dump later, that's fine. I'm doing the best I can now. I think.

Hi chickies!

I haven't been around as much lately-I've been fighting off a bout of depression. Anxiety over hearing about the government job mixed with bad feelings about my current job what can you do? I haven't been sleeping well either.

Everything else is going well though

Mauvais, I'm so sorry you've been depressed. What can we do to cheer you up? Some rough jokes? Some hugs? We'll see what we can dig up.
Don't be sad, sweetie... we love you.
xoxo

Thanks Ellis!

I feel better already!

I actually wished that my boss would drop off the face of the planet the other day and that's not like me to be so mean!

Mauvais


(HUG) - January is a tough month of the year and it's been so cold and I think it just plain makes us ornery and lots of sad news on TV. Sorry you've been down, but each day it's staying lighter a little later....... imagine your boss is a just a pumpkin


Thinking of you.......... hugs and chopsticks,


Terri

Where am I? oh geez... it's the happy and grateful... ah well...

I think we've seen this one before, but it's good for another giggle.

A woman meets a gorgeous man in a bar. They talk,
they connect, they end up leaving together.
They get back to his place, and as he shows her
around his apartment, she notices that his
bedroom is completely packed with
sweet cuddly teddy bears. Hundreds of cute
small bears on a shelf all the way
along the floor, cuddly medium-sized
ones on a shelf a little higher, and
huge enormous bears on the top shelf along the wall.
The woman is surprised that this guy
would have a collection of teddy bears, especially
one that's so extensive,
but she decides not to mention this to him, and
actually is quite impressed by his sensitive side.
She turns to him... they kiss... and then they
rip each other's clothes off and make hot
steamy love.
After an intense night of
passion with this sensitive guy, they
are lying there together in the
afterglow, the woman rolls over and
asks, smiling, "Well, how was it?"
The guy says:

"Help yourself to any prize from the bottom shelf."

HAHAHAHA!!!

Mauvais-Yup, things have been pretty bad here too. This is a rotten time of year, and hating your job just adds to it. Don't isolate yourself too much though, it only makes it worse in the long run. (Believe me, I have done this REPEATEDLY!!!)

Mauvais - I hope you are feeling better. Jobs do suck, don't they? I don't know if it will help for you, but when I am really diliking my boss, I try to remind myself that I like him as a person, just not as a manager. It is the only thing that has saved me from telling him so very nasty things.
