    expanding on what your avatar means to you..

    Mine changes often. I think mine right now is a bit ambiguous. The full quote is "'I've always looked for the perfect life to step into. I've taken all the paths to get where I wanted. But no matter where I go, I still come home me." When I first read it, I immediately thought of going out, searching for yourself but finding out that no matter what you do, at the end of the day you are your parents, your past, etc. It's as if you can go out and get drunk trying to forget your past but no matter how drunk you get, at some point in your stupor a small part of your brain will go back. For me it's that moment when you're laughing with your friends, not a care in the world, and the life of the party. Then something smacks you and reminds you of all your troubles. When I first posted it a long time ago, someone wrote that it (not in her words) brought comfort because she thought of the comforting things in life - friends, family, your home. The same things that in my second paragraph I describe as the things you want to run from. Just call me Susie Sunshine.

    What does your avatar mean to you?

    I have long admired your avatar and have even searched for a copy, never finding one. Now I know why.

    What does your avatar mean to you?

    I change them with my moods. When I really dislike our president, I'll put one up about him. Right now, I'm sick of this war, I'm sick of my family and friends doing FOUR or FIVE tours and each time coming back just a former shell of themselves. GI Joe is just a fairy tale.

    Anyone interested in a prayer thread?

    Good news nursebaby! Will keep you in my prayers that everything works out. compassion, zoe and others are in my prayers too. Well, a miracle occurred last Sunday morning. And yes, I do think this was a miracle. First, the Friday before I had a horrible nightmare where I opened a window to look out, and there I stood with a devilish look on my face. I woke up, thought it was scary and went back to sleep. I have lots of strange dreams and no time to analyze them. Sunday morning comes around and I wake up, without alarm going off, at 10a. Without thinking or knowing what I'm doing, I'm brushing my teeth, putting my contacts in, doing hair and makeup and putting on a nice outfit. Then it hits me: oh, I'm dressed for church. Wow. I haven't been to church in this century. So I go and I love it so much that I joined. My mom has been praying that I would go back to Catholicism and I guess her prayers were answered. I told her and she's very happy. And I'm excited to go back! Ok, got to get off here so I can go to church in the morning.

    What's to love about Fall?

    I love nothing about fall. I think the leaves are ugly, the trees without leaves depressing, the snow suffocating. I don't suffer from SAD or anything. lol

    Good morning! Joe, good luck on writing your paper. I love it when you can use your old stuff. Makes it go faster. Grace, you're making me jealous with your gorgeous views. How I love the ocean *sigh*. Nothing planned today. More cleaning. I did the bathroom and kitchen last night and now it's on to the bedroom and living room. I've got so much laundry to do that it has seeped out of the closet and is not in a big pile on my bedroom floor, over flowing the basket. I WILL do this today!

    Post your list

    I faked baked and called my mom. Working on a bottle of champagne so three out of eight isn't bad.

    Post your list

    She cracked the code, so to speak. Not so child proof after all. This is also the girl who climbed out of her crib at 9 months in the middle of the night, crawled over the gate, scooted down the stairs and was found sitting on the kitchen island eating cheerios. She also thinks it's funny to climb on the table and swing from the chandelier. So, no chairs at db house.

    TGIF 10/3/2008 Good Morning!!

    Oh, there is nothing more satisfying than finding a good place for your books. I still have my first copy of Charlotte's Web, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Bell Jar. I sold some of my books only to spend that money on more.

    Post your list

    My youngest niece does this. It's hilarious and disgusting at the same time. One time I found her with the lid up, standing on the overturned wastebasket lapping at the water like a dog. I can't keep up with 4 kids under 3. Yes, xanax helps. And I pop one or two before they arrive. Ok, my list: 1) get some good sleep. More than 3 hours. 2) Figure out why the hell my iPod won't sync new songs on my computer. 3) Call my mother. 4) Post office 5) Fake bake 6) Clean, I mean really clean 7) Do about 10 loads of laundry In reality, I'll fake bake and call my mom. I'll shoot my iPod before I figure out how to fix the problem that is really peeving me off. Oh, I guess I need a number 8: Buy gun to shoot iPod. Remember to buy bullets. And after all of this shooting, get drunk!

    good luck with that. i had an ercp done years ago and i'd rather give birth to triplets vaginally with no drugs - but then again, i'm not a mother so i don't know what that feels like. i think what made it bad for me was that the nurses doped me up and the dr was very late so by the time he was ready the drugs had been through my system. i'll say a prayer for ya. ((((sabby))))

    What?!? She can't be one already! Wow, time does really fly. Can't wait to see those pics. Supposed to work tonight but I asked for low census. We've been slow so I *pray* I get it. I have too many things to do. I still need to read a book and write a paper on it this week and my nieces want to spend the night Friday and stay Sat so I won't get it done then. Plus, I work Wed and Thurs nights. I did clean out my fish tank (finally). I hate doing it because my fish are aggressive and they get really antsy when I do it. Have a great day!
