Thanks for the support everyone. Made me feel better. Sorry I missed you last night Nerd. I think I left work right before I got that and didn’t get online again until much later. I called my friend to come and give me a haircut. Nothin’ a good girly chat, a haircut and some cold beer can’t make feel better. Sorry, I had to rub that in for FireChica’s sake…the beer part. :)

I was just feelin’ crappy yesterday and my boss’s comments couldn’t have been more poorly timed. It’s just so insensitive and judgmental. Oh well, I’m over it now. Feeling better too because I heard from my FF this morning and got the go ahead to buy his ticket today. So that’s pretty exciting and reassuring. Then I start to think about things and him coming here and I get nervous. I know I’ve already mentioned this but it is just increasing it seems as the time nears. It’s one thing to adjust to your FF when it is your home together and you see him here and there… but the adjustments involved in him coming to my home, where he’s never been, and not having seen each other (except for those 2 days) for five months …well, it’s a little overwhelming. And the thing is, I’m not worried about me necessarily, and my happiness. This is my home. But I want him to be happy while he’s here. I don’t want him to be uncomfortable. And I think part of my nervousness too has to do with the fact that he comes in the DAY of my championship bout and that is always crazy and chaotic and I won’t get to tend to him as much. There will be sooo many people that day I will have to introduce him to and I know how old that gets, especially when you JUST got in town. Anyway, just some more venting. Thanks for listening.

The Indian story was great, Nerd. Do you and Firechica know each other outside of Family Said? Just curious.

I can’t offer much in the way of movies lately. Haven’t seen too many. Might try to go see Seabiscuit today. Anyone seen it? The book, Ghosts of Fire, is good, like Firechica and I have both said. It jumps around a bit, but the author is very interesting, articulate and perceptive. Next I want to read Fire on the Mountain. I need to read that B. Kingsolver book first though. As far as music, my new favorite CD is the new one by Coldplay. I’m so in love with them. They are very mellow and yummy. It’s soooo good and it gets better the more you listen to it. His songwriting, voice and piano playing are very good.

Thanks for the story BLM Bob.

Where is Poet? Tonya? Time for roll call.
