Mich,

I'm here but there are tumbleweeds blowing around in here. It's a ghost town.

red,

I am doing "ok". It has been a LONG day on many levels.

I was just spending some time reflecting on the last year or so of my life, and was thinking of the people here. There are many that were involved on various levels that I just wondered how they were.

My posting has dropped a LOT, and there are MANY reasons for that. Some happy and some sad.

My life is going ok. There really has been some great things happening in my life. However, there have been some not so happy things as well. I am doing ok though.

I am hoping that you are as well...

Love to you,

Mich

Bevdee...

Yes, it is a ghost town in here lately. I don't know...just a lot to think on.

I miss you (((Spitfire LEADER))) a lot. I am sorry to hear the pain that you are facing here as of late. It breaks my heart to hear the tone of sadness in some of your posts. I wish that I had something great to say...yet, I do NOT. I just want you to know that I care, I love you and I am here listening...!! I think of you often...

Mich

Mich ~

Glad to here that you are doing 'ok'. Sometimes the day goes so fast that I feel like I never have enough time to do the things that I want...let alone have to do.

I have noticed a lull in posting by alot of people....perhaps they are in areas where the heat is draining their energy. Perhaps they are rushing around trying to get kids ready for the new year. I really don't know ...they must be doing something.

I do read your postings, though I don't contribute very much. It has been hot here as well...heat index is triple digit. Ah, to be back in the North right now!

How is the corrections officer thing going?

red,

I went and did my application today, and got my assessment tests done as well. I have to wait for those scores to be posted in order for me to be able to register for classes. I am pretty excited about the whole thing really. The assessment tests got me down a little bit. I don't know...just kinda weird how I feel about that...

I want to be a corrections officer, and I will. It is my heart. I admit, there are fears there..but I am glad that I am moving forward to do something that I want to do. I haven't lost too much excitement in all of it. But, as I said...there are definitely fears.

I have fears with school, and fears with what the rest of my life will hold. I think that it will be a tough job. I worry a little about how I will be treated...but, I won't let my fears get the best of me...not this time.

We will see, time will tell.

How are YOU doing?

Mich,

Sounds like a rough job as well. Will it require you to subdue a prisoner once in awhile?

Following a dream is scary...I know...doing that right now. But we got to have a little faith in ourselves.

What does this assessment entail?

At the moment...I think I am doing fairly well. Need to address my long term suppressed anger or rage at my abusers. I have been considering options...like beating up a pillow or pounding on my bed. Rising has suggested quite a few ...and I really like her suggestions especially the one which has to do with PAINT.

I always wanted to do two things...be an archaeologist and to be a good artist. Haven't done the 'Indiana Jones' thing yet...but I am a good artist...even though I still have fears in my heart as well!

(((Mich)))....LOL...love the title.

I'm doing okay....thank you for asking. I haven't been around much but I do pop in from time to time to check up on my friends here at AAC.

I guess I've just been trying to live my life without taking it too seriously ya know? I did that for far too long and it did nothing but make me miserable.

For the most part, things have improved but I'm still a perfectionist and still....nothing can be perfect. So goes the internal struggle :o)

I'm glad things are going well for you....and thanks again for asking about me. It made me smile.

Now....where the hell is that Shaney?

Love,
Lolli

ps. Hello there my bevdeelicious friend 🙂

Oh by golly, IT IS LOLLI....

Good to see you girl. I am glad to here that things are going good for you. I TOTALLY understand what you mean by trying to not take life so seriously. I need a lesson...lol. Do you have the time to teach one?? There would probably be SEVERAL people here that would sign right up.

I was just thinking about a lot of the people here, and you came to mind. You helped along my journey here, in ways that I could probably never explain in words. I know that we didn't always see "eye to eye"...but....I grew from it all.

Thanks for being you, and thanks for posting and letting us know how you are. I don't travel too many places around here right now...got a lot on my own plate, but...just wanted to say hey, and see how some of the old timers were doing...

Glad that I did, and glad to hear from you. I have missed seeing you around. Take care Lolli...

Mich

I never responded to your - "It breaks my heart to hear the tone of sadness in some of your posts.", and I meant to. Thank you for saying that. The great thing you could say? That was pretty great, Spitfire. It's nice to have you twirling in my corner.

It's a summer reunion!

Hi Mich, Scared, Bev, Isis, et-al!!!

Hey, am I the only one who remembers a kids show called "Isis" way back when?

It was a kind of proto-Xena Warrior Princess.

Isn't that just like WD? Always giving up his age. I'll not tell, but I do want to tell ya'll a story.

I was in the checkout at HyVee the other day and the cashier (young girl, first day by the look on her face) rang my groceries thru and then said "Would you like to use your senior discount today?" I said my doc said my body is 80 is that good enough to get it? She looked at me funny and I said "Honey, I am nowhere near ready for that, ask the girl behind me if she wants to use hers. The girl behind (my sis) said "Hey, I'm 2 years younger than you". I winked and we all laughed, but OMG. My mom asks for her senior discount not me. What if I really do look that old. My youngest says "well mom you have nothing but light grey/white in the front, darker gray in the middle, and the poof ball is brown still. I wear my hair up coz it's so curly it's a mess if down. And WD is definitely older than me.

I've been working really hard on my rehab. I just graduated from rehab for the 4th month and I am able to hold my head up by myself most of the time. As the day wears on I do still need the brace but it gets better. My right arm which I have not been able to lift other than to straight out in front of me now can reach straight up to the Heavens. It's been 4 years since I have had my arm do that. I have a long way to go, but I am so hopeful. Oh, and I found another girl her in this small town doing rehab on her shoulder also so we are gonna do our home rehab together. Keep each other accountable. That will be good for me.

Mich, sorry you felt abandoned. Feel free that if you ever need someone you can call out and someone will answer you, maybe not the person you were looking for but someone will.

HI RB, Bev, Lolli, Isis, and of course our fav. WD 🙂

(((red, WD, ISIS, Bev, Mama)))

Truly Mama, this one wasn't about me really feeling abandoned. I just wondered how everyone was doing. I miss you guys, and I was wondering how you were all doing. It is just quiet around here.

And Mama, I don't think you look old enough for a senior discount...:o)!!

Love to you all...

Mich

Mich:

Thank you. My mom says you are only as old as you choose to be. SShe acts like a teen at times.

I'm glad you were just inquiring and not feeling abandoned. Ya know, you've come a very long way from when you first came here. I'm proud of you.
