  1. You stole 295 cookies!


    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took 296 cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the numbers so each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!

  2. Hello! Long time, no read.

  3. Thanks. I haven't been reading anything lately, and have been missing it, but couldn't quite work up the gumption to pick something of my own. I think this might help. I have wanted to read the Lady in White, so am hoping it gets picked, but am sure I will enjoy whichever one gets picked.


    Thanks for the good thoughts- things are still tough, but I feel a bit more emotionally stable this week.

  4. I'm so glad you joined us at A Reader's Group. I thought about sending an invite, but I didn't want you to feel obligated with all the other stuff you have on your plate. Please don't feel as if you must contribute if it gets to be too much. Okay?

  5. Thanks for the encouraging words last night. I love talking to you. Sorry I had to hang up so fast- I didn't get a chance to hear how things are going for you. I hope things are going better. I am thinking about the whole morning-time thing. Thanks for your thoughts on that, and on the mom-sisters situation. You are a blessing.

  6. Hi Jean,

    Are you sure you really want to know? lol, sorta. I am okay. Hanging in there, but really stressed right now, with teen angst, midlife crisis angst from dh, and hormonal angst from me. I am trying to get the art business up and running, getting class descriptions written, class samples made, etc. so I can begin teaching workshops in November. Also trying to get art made to sell, etc. My mom's health is tricky, I am trying to manage mine better by exercising and eating right. Doing respite care again, about 20 hours a month, supervising the kids' school time, forcing them to still do household chores on top of 7 to 8 hours of online school a day. Trying to make sure meals get cooked, laundry gets done, and bills get paid with not enough money coming in.


    I am sure I am forgetting something, but this is what it is like right now. I just about left the whole lot of them two weeks ago- sometimes I feel like the only thing holding me here is the commitment I made 17 yrs ago- when I was a whole different person! It is hard right now, because I am just not feeling the love for or from any of the three of them. But I am hanging in, and calling that good for now.


    How are you?


  7. Hi LB - Saw you were online and wanted to see how you are doing.


    - Jean
