    • I gotcha, Kuno, but grieving is no excuse for eating shit.
      I miss her now in a way I never did when I was alive. Strange, but true. I think a large part of it is that I finally found my connection with her; found it 2 weeks before she bought the farm.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          • Naiad... 1. You're right grief is no excuse to eat crap-and this is why you are a far greater person than I. 2. Never lose who you are-I like you more and more with each passing day. 3. I really appreciate your directness-it is refreshing and inspiring-THANKS

            The end, Happy Sunday

            • 9/30/2010 is when I begin a new challenge. I'll continue this one until the end of Mark's challenge, so from the 30th to the 6th, I'm essentially on 2 challenges. That's fine, because my next challenge is an extension of this one. My next challenge will involve both PB challenges and personal challenges that relate to the extra time I'll have without work.
              In preparation for this upcoming challenge, tomorrow I'll be doing some massive clean- up and organization in my life. My closets (including the scary lab closet, full of projects and hobby stuff), my lab, my bookshelves, the kitchen. Especially my lab and bookshelves. I may do a mural on my white board to get rid of some of this emotional stuff. I'unno. I'll figure it out tomorrow. I will also then list any book duplicates I have (that aren't already claimed) for those who may want them. And godsdammit, I WILL get my posters and painting up on the walls of my lab (tomorrow or within the next challenge period).

              • Manda-
                Thanks, I needed to hear that stuff. Except that I'm not stronger than you. You're strong in your own ways that I've never had to deal with. I cave too. The idea is to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back on the damn horse. It needs to know who's boss.

                  I understand-Didn't entirely mean it that way I mostly meant in that specific case... my weakness is foodage. I look for excuses to eat a bit of crap here and there-but don't we all?

                  Thanks! You're an excellent friend and I am glad my comments helped

                    • Naiad,

                      I'm so sorry for your loss! After losing both my mother and father within a years time, I found I needed something to help me in my grieving process. Someone suggested I start a journal about each. I focused the majority of my writing on all the positive memories, lessons I had learned from them, and times or actions that meant the most to me. As I went along, I gathered mementos or some of their personal effects and wrote of what these these things reminded me of.

                      I have to say, that for me, this was key. I may be sad about them being gone, but I now put more focus on their impact in my life and the wonderful memories I have.

                      (Hugs)
                      Starting Weight/BMI: 184/29.7
                      Current Weight/BMI: 130 /21.0
                      Ultimate Goal: 125/18

                      • After getting my Grok tat and not doing anything about it for awhile, I have placed Grok in his (temporary) home.

                        He's sitting right on top of that spinal bone where my neck and shoulders meet. I call it "Grok Hunts Hair."
