What a year

Wow is all I can say. I remember how scared I was writing my first post last year, on the eve of my HSG. While I said originally that all I wanted to do was have a journal for myself, I was still terribly scared about mean comments and just generally being out there for the whole world to see. I felt incredibly alone, entering a world that I did not know. Almost like being in a completely foreign country without a guidebook, not knowing the language, customs, or what to do. I remember going to my first TOOTPU gathering and leaving there saying, "wow, they were all normal" And realizing that made me normal too. So instead of being alone and scared, I stumbled upon an amazingly strong group of women, without whom I would not have a shred of sanity left. I have been so fortunate to form some wonderful friendships, both IRL and in my laptop. So thanks to all of you.

And now for my pseudo-devastating news of the day....blogger has been blocked at my work. I can no longer click through to read anyone's blogs during the day. How am I going to take my mental health breaks during the day?? Or congratulate someone when they get their second line or their match? Or hug them when it doesn't work out? Totally sucks.

I'm not in half as snarly a mood as I was yesterday so this will be a much more even kneeled post, with far less four letter words. Went for another walk today, that's 3 times in 3 days! Go me! And tomorrow is the last day of summer session at school. Which means that even though I still have to go to work on Monday, there will be no students there and only about 1/4 of the staff. Much more peaceful. And I can flex my time a little so I can sleep in (yeah!)

Dr's appt tomorrow morning, here's hoping I didn't put on another 7 pounds in 14 days like last time! I did spend some quality time with my guys Ben and J.erry earlier in the week. They are just such good friends to me!

Thanks again to all of you who listen...I hope you know just how much it is appreciated

You can use Google Reader - works the same as Bloglines. I can email you instructions on how to import your blogroll from Bloglines.

HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!

And Google Reader beats Bloglines hands down (IMO)!

Okay, so you'll have to get a laptop to keep at work, with one of those wireless broadband things they keep advertising on TV. Forget the cost, you need your blog reading!

Happy one year birthday to your blog!

Stupid people at work, thinking you actually wanted to WORK instead of read blogs. Sheesh!

I'm so glad you are part of TOOTPU. I agree that it has made a genuine impact on my level of sanity.

Blogger blocked - that stinks! I wouldn't blog if I couldn't get to it from work...I don't use the computer at home at all really.

HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY to you!
