Allright. I'M BACK!!

  1. Okay. I'm done. I've wallowed in self-pity, cried, threw my little hissy fit and I'm finished. Thanks to all who sent support my way, you all are the greatest!!

    I've come to realize that:

    1. I am not a hideously ugly pox-ridden beast. I'm not sentenced to a life ringing a bell in a cathedral tower just because there is not a single solitary man interested in me. I'll be fine.

    2. The season is here! Time to act like it and stop thinking I should sit in the desert and watch the tumbleweed blow by because I have to go to all these functions by myself. SO WHAT??!!! I'll be my usual sparkling self! I think that's why I keep getting invited back - that and because of my extraordinary culinary skills!

    3. Starting my new job Dec. 9th - yep, call me crazy, but this job is not helping to actualize all my skills. I'm a case manager, I must case manage! So, to the acute care hospital to DO MY THANG I go! I sparkle when I shine, did you know that? Plus the pay and benefits are better!

    4. Thanks to a very insightful person on this board, I realize Emma will not be worse for wear because I'm all she has. Nope, single Mom's do a great job! In fact, I think she has a WAY cool Mom!

    So, (playing Rocky music) here I am, hear my roar, panties no longer in a wad and ready to fly off when appropriate!!

    Hey Vegas,
    Welcome back. It appears the fog is lifting for a few of us. Heather got her house, you are feeling better, there appears to be some semblemce of hope in my career path, Stargazer is back to her normal sense of humor...so...things are looking up at least.

    I missed you.
