Hi Honey, I am Home!

Over the past week, I have been seeing posts from a very dear friend from Mylot that has been on hiatus as I have been. Seeing her brave sometimes controversial discussions brought me out of my own hibernation. Then last night I was visiting FB and that made me realize just how much I truly missed all of my friends on-line. What made me stop posting was my own fault, as I was internalizing and making some of the Mylot politics and issues of friends personal. Things that really were not mine to take to heart as I was, made me lose the fellowship and joy that I have always experienced with social sites such as Mylot. I have missed you all. For discussions sake, how is it that you all handle issues within social sites and not make them your own? How do you keep the joy of contact with out burdening your own spirit? What is new with you? What juicy gossip have I missed over the last ummmm 2 years?

I only come back to post when people like you write discussions for me to respond to. But the politics was always easy for me to avoid. Once I hit the little X in the upper right hand corner of the screen I was no longer bothered by anything that went on here. I did get a little caught up in a few things that truly were none of my business but when you make connections with people over the internet it is hard to just sit by and see injustice happen to them. I never lost contact with those here that have become like family to me. It's the cutest thing when my avatar calls the fish "grandpa". lol I'm glad to see you back. I've missed you :c)

((CYN)) So good to hear from you. You know what, at the time I just stopped posting I was having major drama in my own family as well. Sometimes I let my emotions carry me away because I care for friends (on-line and off) so very much. Then when I can not immediately deal with an issue or see injustice I have no control over I tend to shut it down. Essentially that is what I did with Mylot, not just with Mylot but other aspects of internet socialization such as Skype. I dug my heels in and decided that I would concentrate on the things I could control mostly work. And work I have been doing. It is what gets me through. I have missed you as well Thank you :))

Can I believe my eyes??? MWAHHHHH XXXX I am so very pleased to see you here again. Did you ask a question? Oh yes. Well I try to remember that it's just cyber. Except that increasingly it's not. I now know so many of my friends personally and have met a few too. We Skype, ring, write and of course FB and myLot. We all seem to get on and that's what's most important. As to gossip. Well she did, but she didn't, he almost did and then changed his mind. He and she got married and then the dog married the boyfriend. I think that's about it. LOL. XXXX

2 yrs? No friggin' way you been gone THAT long, Angel. Have you? I know I've sure missed ya and wondered where the heck you gone to..yeah yeah..I know, I SHOULD of PMed ya..I'm bad for not doing that. I never forget my friends thou, even if we don't talk much at all, I am STILL thinking of ya. Sadly,I've lost a few friends due to my big mouth and still think of them as well even though they are around still..here in mylot but mostly over in FB. Sorry but, I don't have any juicy gossip for ya and I told ya a bit about what's been going on in my life over at the other place. Head to my notes in my profile over in FB for a sneak peek on my life told in those 'getting to know ya' notes. eh..maybe you will find some juicy stuff over there, never know.. lol Any other questions..just ask, Angel I've took my own hiatus from this place as well for almost a year. I'm still not back here full force but have noticed a few of my friends have returned as well according to my inbox. just haven't gotten around to responding to them all yet.

Maybe not quite 2 years but well over a year. LMAO I admit that I have come into mylot with out really signing in just to read a discussion from my email. So I guess that is kind of cheating. Yes, I am bad about PM's as well. So I do not hold that against ya! I am talking to you over on FB so I will go back over there where we are having a discussion LMAO.

Welcome back! I don't know, lot has changed, people come, people go. One positive thing, not gossip, is GoAskAlice. She's one of the Admin people here and she posts discussions on how to improve the site. And some things really have improved. I take breaks when I get burned out and then come back after a while. PS darn it, I didn't beat the lamb here, he is fast! :-)

Hi there ((DAWN)), yes that is what I was doing taking a break, gosh I just did not mean for the break to be so long. Time flies by me any more. I told the lamb that I have always read my notifications so I have kept up somewhat with everyone that way.

I avoid people or topics that do not add joy to my life. With this many users it is easy to find those who lift you up, or give you a laugh. We have had rumbles and good times and missing friends and returning friends and people who say they are leaving but then come back. That is why I do not delete friends. MyLot has had an admin member visiting with us, to find what needs to be improved. I understand we are in for a big upgrade. I am glad that you are here to join in, and I hope it is good.

Hello Gerty :))) Thank you. You know I really did not call myself leaving just one day I had enough and did not come back in. Then time was just passing, and before I knew it I just had not been here in over a year. So I just jumped back in today with both feet, and it is wonderful to get caught up with everyone. LOL I really had to look to figure out how to start a new discussion it had been that long since I had.

It is easy to understand you being confused. They change things around on here pretty often.

Welcome back! Angelwhispers. I hope that you have a wonderful time back here! The only thing that is going on is the usual stuff. We have a monitor name GoAskAlice. She is here to answer any of our questions and suggestions on improving myLot. We have given her information that she needed, so sooner or later we may see the improvements that will be made to this site. Other than that, nothing is pretty much new with me. Oh, I did move into my new apartment 3 and 2 weeks ago. I hope that you have a great time while you are back. It is good to also hear from you. Cheers and Be Blessed!

hi angelwhispers welcome back, missed you .Yes its so e asy to get sucked in when bad things happen to our mylot friends, and i have been angered at times for some who had insults hurled at them here but lately its been really wonderful,no body acting mean or insulting any of my own mylot friends. I was away for 11 months and cameback about five or six months ago once I got my computer and monitor out of storage. I am now stuck in a retirement center as we were evicted after my son lost his job. but we will be fine once he gets employed again. others are also out of work too. We will be having some changes made here on mylot sounds exciting but hope they do not make too drastic a change.lol. hugs from hatley.

As I have said I have kept up with everyone as I have always continued to get my notifications, and I do read each and everyone of them. I have been aware of your situation with housing and the loss of your sons job. Just know you have been in my thoughts and prayers. It is wonderful to hear from you as well. Again Thank you
