No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Let's Blog, Already!

Time to get back to writing and blogging. I've had plenty of days to get through the gradual withdrawal from WORK. It's hard to believe this year's season was even worse than normal.

I've managed to convince my Yahoo email to get my notices, even though Qwest will not pass them through our email. This should help.

In the meantime, two friends dumped me off their flists frostbit_sky and heartofslash. Not sure if they did cuts or what, because I haven't been around. I've had heartofslash on my flist for years. Oh, well.

I'll never get the friends list thingy, but that's just me. I come and go at LJ, and I have for years, but I'm still here. Sorta. And I've never dropped anyone, unless there was some sort of ugly situation. Luckily those are few and far between.

We took a gorgeous drive up the gorgeous Gorge tonight. We finally are having a few days of summer. While the rest of the country cooks, we're barely in the 70s.

I've got to get myself to get back to unpacking boxes. There's still lots of work to do!

Yay! for starting blogging and writing again.

I'm glad you had a nice drive. :)

Sorry to see people dump you. I've never understood the reasoning behind dumping a person who isn't active -- it's not like they're blogging too often, after all. (grin)

But I don't get it, clearly. After all these years here, both you and I have less than 200 friends. Yet I know I get tons of hits every week -- so go figure on that...

Anyway, GREAT to see you here again! (woo hoo) And I'm excited to see you WRITING again, of course!

I'm not keen on it being called a "friends list," mainly because of the hurt feelings it can cause when someone is dropped. Would we be so concerned if it was a "reading list"?

Anyway, I've been dropped a couple of times, though the only way I could tell was because my number dropped so it was obvious I didn't have much in common with them to begin with. People change fandoms. Often, that's all it takes.

Glad to hear you're writing again!

Good for you, it was another pretty day and Saturday is going to be even hotter. Gary and I had fun playing doubles last night and Eugene played with Nancy. We needed to win our last game to make a little money, but lost and they did worse than us.

Hope the cribbage goddess will smile on us today and let us qualify for the playoffs. Nice to see all of the people.

I will not go Sunday unless I qualify, but I am going to play the Saturday night, unless I feel too tired.

Have a nice day and enjoy the sunshine.

Glad you are getting some you time back!

I find it difficult to get back here when I haven't been for a long time. I check out facebook then don't make it here.

But facebook can get boring and if I want to write something that I wouldn't want my aunt to read for instance then lj has way more freedom for me.

Getting out of the habit is a strange thing.

Hi Marilyn, remember when we spent all of our time here?
