    Let's get this party started my fellow beepers!!

    Weather -- hot, hot, hot

    Sleep -- Excellent -- 8 consecutive hours -- woo hoo!!

    Mood -- Good

    Plans -- Off to work, really need to get a lot done in the next few weeks. I hired a temp to help me and hope it goes well

    Life is on an upswing, everyone got a bonus at work, my twin sister is coming to visit next week, and I'm spending a lot of time with the previously mentioned "geeky" guy.

    I'm starting to like this guy a lot -- unfortunately, I am so GREEN when it comes to relationships that it is a quite stressful. This weekend I did a complete "no-no"...I disclosed my bipolar condition, and I'd only known him for 2 weeks. But, it turned out to be a really good move. I was getting super anxious and I couldn't sleep and he definitely picked up on it. So we sat down and had a talk. He was uncomfortable at several points, but then he shared about his own bout with depression and asked several questions.

    The rest of the weekend went SO much better. I was much much much more relaxed and we had a great time. He even made lobster for dinner on Sunday! So, we have plans to see each other soon. We have a lot of fun together and I just want to enjoy it and not worry about how long it will last

    PS -- I will now refer to him as just "G" (his name starts with a G), instead of, "geeky."

    Good morning, troopers!

    Weather - 56 and cloudy, but supposesd to get to 75 - lovely!

    Sleep - good, but only 4 hrs, so went back to sleep on couch after up a half hour and slept for 2 hrs, and now I'm wide awake. Taking provigil was a necessity this morning!

    Mood - pretty good

    Plans - too many that I don't know which to choose. lol One thing that I think I'm getting really close to finally doing is calling Cathes husband/doctor to let him know of my concerns. This week it will have been 4 weeks since she talked with me about having a FMRI on my brain and said she would get back to me. I have reminded her once in between, but she has still dropped the ball. There are also several other like incedents that I will share with him so that he doen'st think this is a fluke thing (though even if it were, it's still not good) If I do it, what i would have to do is call them, ask to go to his voice mail, and then wait for him to return my call; which means I would have to stay home until he calls. More than likely, he would call me back during his lunch break. I have butterflys in my tummy just thinking about it. I haven't made the call yet, so no praises until I actually do! lol

    Bptwin - best wishes to you with your new relationship!

    Cookie - be healed, girl! You know if I could just say the word and it would happen, I'd of said it a long time ago; but I lost my special healing wand! Darn! I hope you are physically comfortable tonight for your dinner!

    Forgiveness is letting go of the hope that the past could have been any different --Unknown

    Okey Dokey,I'll try to post again.

    Hi Everyone,

    BeeRJ,so nice to see you. As always,thank you for the beautiful picure.

    bptwin,so glad things are going well with he who shall now be called"G."

    Weather: Fog with sun breaking through,right now. ugh!

    Sleep: Stayed up late. Woke up too early.

    Mood: I'm better today.

    Plans: We rented some goats. Yes,rented. They are working to clear away pastures that aren't hospitable for cattle. They come with a Great Pyranese Dog. He's the leader and guides them and protects them.He is so huge. He's as big as our mini horses! The goats brought some of they're kids. They are so darn adorbs and make the cutest little "meep meep" sound. I want to just kiss 'em,but we're not to go where they are because they are "working." We aren't supposed to interact with the Dog either,because he is "on the job."

    I'm ending this because my computer is acting strange,

    Good morning my friends!

    Weather: Very nice for August

    Sleep: I didn't get my after-work nap until 4 pm, so I slept a good portion of the evening and 9 more hours at night. This is the best sleep I have had in weeks. Both my kids were visiting and even though they were gone all day and evening, I love them being here.

    Mood: Pretty good. I want to get so much done, but the body is still aching, so I have have to put limits on myself. My moods are more positive when I accomplish something. This is not a good thing because I just can't match what I used to do. I wish I could get over that.

    Plans: Today is my son's birthday. I don't' know what we are doing because it is totally up to him and he is unpredictable. All I know is that he wants to eat mass quantities of fish. You can go broke feeding that guy!

    Sending hugs to every one, and double hugs to those who need a little extra. You know who you are.


    Debbie - I'll be waiting for your answer!
    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
