Popping in with good news :D

Cleared one of the hurdles at work - Got 4 drivers back from leave and one new driver. This will hopefully relieve at least some of my stress 8) :D

I don't care whether the glass is half full or half empty. I want to know what's in the glass!

One of these days I will stop biting the bullet ... I will put it back in my gun and shoot

Aww Ivy vines, you are definitely not alone on that. I decided I wanted to write when I discovered that I could actually express myself logically, and even make sense when I write them down. I am incredibly awkward at conversations- and that video you posted of the speech, is totally me in front of people.

I think this is why I need a close group of friends, so I have a place where I can be myself. This is partly why I haven't enjoyed church lately- cause its all casual conversations with people I dont really know, so its always awkward and I say stupid things.

So I guess we could just have coffee and dont talk...perhaps just read? hehe

Awesome Possum. - that's just the first thing that came to mind, and not quite sure cause I never say that.

Really glad for you Timmytot- hope things continue to improve for you!

Holly thanks for the encouragement- and I think those are my favorite winter pics yet. I think if I was allowed I would live in a frosty gingerbread house. Snow is the closest thing we have to magic.

Good news, Tim-now maybe you can stay on here more :wink:

JP I missed you by one hour? Now I know when to check -IF I'm awake at that time, heh heh.

Ivy, I write better than I can speak with someone (that's not saying much). I always forget words and my thoughts fly away. Maybe tonguethaid will change names with me.

Shann, look what you did by coming back! I entered the challenge. :shock: I enen posted on the challenge discussion. Yikes. The trouble is I'm very insecure about it and prob'ly won't hint. I wish we could use pseudonyms on the challenge. :roll:

Blessings all and goodnight,

Tim, so glad things are looking up for you!

Ivy, I don't remember you being awkward in person at all. But I know what you mean... it's easier sometimes to express things in writing, especially if you have time to go back and fix it a few times. :P


Boy, my day was crazy. Had to get up early for me (considering I haven't been falling asleep until 3 to 5 AM) but nothing ended up as planned. Drove around a bunch but didn't actually do much today. Did get a nap and got to go to critique group with Randy Ingermanson tonight (but didn't bring anything since I didn't know for sure if I was going).

That spot above my hip is really bothering me again. But tomorrow I'm going to get a professional Myofasial Release Massage before work, so I'm hoping that will help resolve some things.

Patty, did you get my email back about the poem? Hope it went through. I didn't get a message from my boss today, so you never know if things go through or not. :roll: BTW, if you really wanted to, you actually could use a pen name on FW.... But I'll bet your story is better than you think. :)

Late night once again, taking me lunch and checking in to say hi.

Been working some on my book, getting reworked, and even found a couple places to add things in a bit. So it is getting there. Never be perfect, mainly because it is mine of course, but anyway.

I will be having a couple days off and am going to CoosBay to do a little shopping tomorrow. Will have the laptop with me so I can write and maybe even get online for a bit.

So.. is anyone up to night? :shock:

hi, birdie, yes I got it but haven't had a chance to answer my emails. Thank you so much.

Ok, it's almost 5:30 my time, so Sparrow are you still up?

Pup, are you out to lunch? Oh, that didn't sound right. :mrgreen:
