Good Sunday Morning 5/16/04

  1. Good morning, though I don't know what's so good about it, since I don't have my coffee yet! LOL! Can I tell you guys how great I think you all are again? The smoking support here is just fabulous and I can't imagine a better place to get it. I would be afraid that if we started a thread for support in quitting, that it would get trolls and mean people and we would all end up fighting again. That's one thing I don't get....some of the mean things that come out of people's heads instead of support and caring.

    So, for the question of the day today: Were you ever treated meanly by a "bully" or were you one of those that bully others? Or did you just stay out of everyone's way? I was treated badly by a few people at a few different times. It just depended on how mad they were at me in the present time. For some reason, I seemed to be one that they thought they could pick and choose which days to like me and not like me. I also was very horrible to my best friend at one point when another girl didn't want me to talk to her anymore. I didn't. I hung out with the other girl instead. One boy called me "thunder thighs" all through school, hence my eating disorders. I'm happy to report that this boy now is very large and has no room to talk any longer.

    Today, not many plans again. I think I'll hang out here most of the day until Bryan gets home from work around 5. Right now, he wants me to go make his lunch, so I guess this is going to be short and sweet today.

    Hugs all around....

    Good Morning Kim, and everyone else in the northern hemisphere, and good evening to any of us in the lower half of the world.
    Had a great day at the park, had our picnic lunch with our chicken, potato salad, waldorf salad, fresh baked bread(well I baked it yesterday) and what was left of that chocolate cake. The neighbour then sat at the park with dw and chatted while I took my older 2 and her 2 kids and played on the swings, threw the frisbee, played some cricket and basketball.
    All in all it was a wonderful relaxing day, just what I needed
    Now for the question of the day. At school I was a vertically and horizontally challenged child (short and fat). I was bullied daily by one person. He left town when I got to the 8th grade, and that was about the time I started to grow and got seriously into sport. Some 3 years later, this person returned and was standing asking one of his old friends what happened to that fat little kid. His friend pointed to me and said "There he is"(I was now about twice his size). He decided not to pick on me anymore.
    Anyway, have a wonderful day my friends

    Good morning!!!! I'm sick and tired of work. Tonights it's my 3rd 12 hour shift, then a four-hour trauma inservice after that.

    I was a bullied child for being "different" and gay. Almost daily torture from 5th through 12th grade. It really messed me up because I stuffed a lot of anger and feelings, and because didn't learn to trust others. I internalized a lot of it, thinking maybe they were right, I was a worthless so and so. It took me into my 30s to be open to the fact that someone could love me. But I'm well now.

    Here's ya some hot coffee, Girl !!! One for me and one for you... since we're the only ones here thus far...

    Nope, never have been a bully.. too softhearted. Always take up for the underdog. Have I been picked on? You betcha !!! By my own MOTHER all those growing up at home years... but that's a whole 'nother thread. Forgiveness is a healing thing.. works everytime.

    Let's see.. going to go over the kitchen real good again today, and hone my list of groceries and what-nots for my family's visit which I need to pick up tonight at the store... and of course a pretty bouquet of "welcomeflowers" to set in a vase in the kitchen...

    ... then tomorrow is my BIG frenzied cleaning day... go through ALL the rooms again, dust, vacum...

    ...put out the new couch pillows,throw rugs and DARE the hubster to walk on them with "just mowed the grass feet"... :chuckle .... sweep off the porch again, vacum out the car, (dh will wash it)... and that should pretty much take care of things. Tues. a.m. I change the bedsheets in both rooms for company, and get myself ready to go to the airport to pick them up... whooooot !!!

    So you won't see me here after tomorrow... and tomorrow will have very little time. So enjoy me today, 'cuz it's all you're gonna get for awhile !!!

    Wow Jnette! I love playing with photos! I can't wait to get started on my scrapbook some more, but Bry has to get me some more photo paper and I'll soon be running out of ink! Still cheaper than having all the film developed! LOL!

    Good morning Kimmy. Here's your coffee. Lets have a cup together. I'm really tired today, So I probably will have to go back to bed soon to rejuvinate. I agree with you about the fight thing. It's too draining to begin with, and it's just too upsetting. That's why we nee all the smilys we can get. We feel better if we can and will put on a happy face.

    In answer to your question? YES. Have you ever seen how a bunch of chickens will pick of a smaller one until it no longer has feathers, and then they begin to pick at the poor chicken's flesh, making it bleed? That pretty much was my experience in school. I became a loner. I built up such a wall of self-protection, I refused to get involved in their groups, etc. Until my senior year. A lot of things changed then. The classmates were more mature, and what little they did know about me saw that I loved humor, and music.

    Good morning Tweety. You see? I was where you were too, my friend, but I learned to not only let it go, but to forgive them as well. Now I have a bunch of them for friends.

    Scrubbers, definitely true that what goes around comes back around. We get back exactly what we dish out; good or bad. Just like a boomerang.

    And Jnette, I was tired when I logged in here, now I'm exhausted and out of breath. Your smileys did it. Sure could use a bunch of your energy. You did a great job on your photo.

    So until later,
