Keeping up with the Joneses...er...NanoBloPoMoers...

I have something that I promised I would post for myself before the end of this exercise in blogging every day for a month. I was going to attempt it tonight, but, again, the day has gotten away from me... there is too much "house stuff" to do... and I really need to sit and spend the proper time to do this. I have thought and cried about it all day. And the naivete-no, that's wrong- the innocent narcissm of a woman (more of a girl) on a message board has brought to me to the point where I need to post it...for myself. If I am to ever deal with it. I don't mean to dangle a carrot for those who read here. I am just tired and really meant to write tonight. I am upset that I didn't set aside the time because writing here lets me walk away from "duty" for a while. I appreciated your gift ideas. Thank you so much. I like the ornament idea and I just might be able to talk James into it.

I have been waiting until the last minute to do my posts too. Blogging is starting to feel like a chore worse than dishes. Whose idea was this anyways? LOL. Only a few days left and then we can go back to blogging for fun. I can't wait to hear this story.

Aww. The proberbial carrot? You carrot-dangler you! Keep us in suspense....just kidding. ;) I understand. Take your time. Post things when you are ready.

The ornament idea sounds great. It seems like everyone in my family is taking the guess work out of "what to get for who" gifts. They all want gift cards. Sigh. But that's the perfect gift to give someone you just don't know what to get, but it sure does take the fun out of opening gifts. Oh well. At least shopping will be quick.

Hey you sound pretty good tonight and I'm happy to hear it. Did you get what I sent you yet? I hope it's not lost in the mail. Uhhh...snail mail!

When you are ready. Only when you are ready.

Thinking about you today and hoping it has been a little bit less stress and that you find some peace and hope waiting right outside of your heart.
You are one very special lady in my book. May lots of love and only kindness surround you today Laura.

Just wanted to say I was thinking of you too. I went to my first out of group grief gathering. There were five of us from teh grief group met for dinner. I mentioned you and your blog. You are holding up and each day is a step ...big or small...that you can be proud you got thru.
