Why Does Myspace Always Jack Up My Computer?

I can't stand that place! I swear, I wish my nieces and sister and other family members would just quit contacting me thru that thing. But they all love it. Me... got no use for it except as a cheap way to stay connected to my dearly beloved, far-flung family. Every time I try to go on there my computer slows waaaayyyy down or freezes up entirely. Anyway.... enough about that...

I walked a whole mile and a half today! That was just righteous! It felt so good. I don't know why or how or anything, but I've been feeling so good lately. I feel boisterous, bouncy, silly, giddy as a kitty drunk on catnip. I'm likin' this feeling. I hope it never goes away. I don't care why or how, I just like it. Right now the world is full of beauty, love, happiness, good things. After feeling so low for so long, this feeling is 'over the moon' fantastic!

So.. what have I been doing? Besides turning 42? Not much. Walking, exercising with Gilad, whom I adore. He's freekin' great! Does stuff that even out of shape me can do. And it's fun. And he doesn't bully or talk down to you. When I get back from FL next week I'm going to purchase some of his cd's. I found an eBay store that sells them fairly cheap. I just don't want to get them now and then the mailman leave them on my porch the whole time I'm in FL. The heat surely wouldn't be good for them.

And I'm all excited about that too. Family reunion in FL, that is. My aunt/sister Tina found a place out in the woods, it's a historical landmark. Got a pavilion and a dining hall with kitchen and showers/restrooms and a private campground on a small lake. Gonna have karaoke (sp) dancing, perhaps a live band, don't know about that yet. Lots of good food, friends... and the best part is my sister Martie and her girls are going to come! I'm so excited I can hardly breathe when I think about it. She hasn't been to a family reunion since about the mid-90's. So, so long... Can't wait for everyone to see them. So far, only Tina and Donald and their boys are the only family members who have seen them, besides me, since the year 2000 when Mom passed away. And that was only her and John cause they didn't bring the girls to the funeral. If I could do handstands and back flips and all that stuff, I would be doing them. This is gonna be such a fun time. A fine time. I'm happy to be alive, actually. This is going to be good.

I got a dozen big floppy brimmed straw hats that I am decorating for me and some of the other "ladies" and I got a couple dozen Chinese folding fans for the heat that I plan to share out. Won't be enough to go around, but... first come first served, as the sign says. HA! My sister and I are going to go in together and put up a salad/fruit bar for our food contribution. I'm excited to be working with her on a project again, even if it is only shopping for and then assembling food. That's lots of fun too. We've been emailing back and forth, bouncing ideas back and forth. That's fun.

I think I mentioned that I walked a mile and a half today. And I felt good afterwards! I still had energy to cook supper. And now I'm ready to get to work on my hats. It was great tho. I finally found my thumbscrews so I had some good music to listen to again. You know... those little external memory things? Thumb drives. That's the phrase I was looking for. I jokingly started calling them "thumbscrews" with my son and now I usually can't remember the "proper" term for them. I thought I had lost them, and I was a sad, sad girl. But they turned up the other day, upstairs with the other computer. Whew! Like I said, I was gonna be a sad, wretched little girl if I had actually lost all that music.

Speaking of music: here's one song that I found particularly bouncy during my walk today:




Technotronic ~ Move This




By the way... Something has changed in my life, I like the color pink, now. Weird. I feel all "girly" and silly and stuff. It's good tho, I've never been a "girly-girl" before. I feel kinda silly and self-conscious about it, but... there it is. It feels good to put on makeup and paint my nails and buy a new outfit and shoes and stuff.

I feel good!

:D That's my big smile knowing that you're feeling on top of the world.

I'm having a pink thing too. I have never liked to wear the color and now I even have pink sneakers! I don't wear pink often though, but I do like it now. Girlie pom-pom fun!

It's so nice to have a positive outlook on life. With my anxiety, when I start feeling good, I start wondering when the next bad thing will happen. I've got to stop that and just enjoy. I'm happy for you!

I've had the same experience with pink. I couldn't stand it when I was younger, and now I have a pink messenger bag, a pink rain jacket, there's pink on my sneakers. It's sick!

No pink on my sneakers yet, but I do have a couple of pink or pinkish, shirts and a pink skirt. A HOT pink skirt! It is a sickness, I think. :)

Anna, I am so like that too. Everytime things are going well or I start to feel especially happy I begin to wonder where the trouble is, or from what quarter it will come. That's just wrong. We should just enjoy the times we feel good and let it be. Easy to say, ain't it? But honestly, from a health standpoint, I felt so awful for so long, it's just a relief to finally feel good for a change. So I don't remember to worry. :)

I refuse to even sign up for MySpace :) I keep telling everyone "oh well.. just email me or you can call me LOL"...

Ah so exciting to have something to look forward to! I dont' remember the last time we had a family reunion.. but that's probably a good thing.. I'm not too good with crowds! LOL So nice you are really getting into it as well with the hats which are BEAUTIFUL!

GREAT SONG!!!!!!!!!!!! I know some people will find it funny.. but that just brings me back to a lot of good memories. And yes.. perfect walking music :) Keep at it!
