No Longer MIA

Ladies and Gents, May I present, ME!!!! I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaak!I know I've missed a lot of your discussions lately and probably won't get to them either. But my time and energy is limited, so I will respond only to new ones that interest me as they come into my inbox. I also want to thank all of you who have given me best responses. I nearly - no I DID fall off my couch when I saw them all! I usually make a habit of thanking those that award me best response, and sometimes keeping the convo going that way, but there are so many I'm behind on, that these comments here will have to suffice by way of thanks. In a way I started my life all over again today. My illness really made me stop and rethink my life's priorities and the things I want to devote my energy too. So it's not that I don't value every little word you all write, but I can't engage in convos with you on all of them. So if I don't respond to every discussion, it's not that I no longer love you, it's just that I've decided it's really ok to be picky. To those of you I have corresponded with off site over the last few horrible weeks...... May hugs and much love and appreciation for your support, the laughs and the steadfastness of your friendship. At this point I should ask you all a question to make this a discussion, but there isn't a question that would make sense really, so instead I leave you with this:

I'm pooped from cleaning up all the monkey poo from the party last night and everyone left me alone for some reason..hmmmmm..so your Magesty..your Honor..this place is now yours again and now We can rest! Glad your better and didn't fall in a Lake with your feet in cement

I'm glad to see you back spark, you have been missed. Yes, we do need to prioritize our lives. I did the same thing when I got really sick. Odd that it takes that to make us really think about things, huh! I know that time may be limited and as I do what I can I try to do what needs to be done first before some of my wants. I also try to get wants in there too, for what is the sens ein life if we don't get what we want sometimes or do what we want? No sense that it. I do hope you are doing much better. Many blessings my friend.

Good for you Spark. I'm so glad to hear that you are going to do things that make you happy. Like I said before it's a shame it takes us getting sick and dying, or almost dying to make us realize that we must take time to do what will make us feel good. I bet your hubby did think you had gone silly. It was enlightening though. My hubby learned a long time ago not to worry about me in what I do. He says he never knows what I'm going to do. lol.

LOL, try dancing in the rain or just walking in it. I love that to. When I was in Taiwan, the ladies come running after me to bring me and umbrella, I politely refused and they think I'm crazy for wanting to walk in the rain. LOl

Lovely to have you back dear sparks. Your tales have been sorely missed. Nothing like laughter and insanity to brighten your day. You honesty and straight down the line attitude is also refreshing and should be imparted to everyone. I am sorry to hear that you have been ill, and hope you are well on the road to recovery. Good on you for being really picky, there is certainly nothing wrong with that. In fact sometimes it is a necessity in life. To many people waste energy on things that are really of little importance in the greater scheme of things. If we all let the little things slide there may be no need to fight.

You are SO smart Lou. That's why I love you! LOL I couldn't live without laughter. Might as well roll me in a sheet and shove me into a ditch if you take the laughter out of life eh? So from now on - I am determined to have fun. So glad your attitude is in the right place. Now let's PARTY!

well hello there doll face! it is always good to see you honey. i am glad you are feeling better so you can grace us with your wonderful presence. what is wrong with being picky. you should be able to pick and choice the post you want to reply too. that doesn't mean you don't love your friends or don't care about their current post, it just means you don't have anything to add. and that is fine too.
