Oh, I'm so sorry I forgot everything you were facing - both ends of the spectrum with joy and sadness. Tell us more about it all if you feel like it.

But there's no need to apologize! We missed you!!


p.s. You know, I've been thinking about starting a new Beach Party thread, but I'm having to curtail all my "fun foods" right now and I'm not sure I could manage it! I'm thinking about it, though!

I'm sorry for your recent losses. I know depression can make physical pain as well. I think it has been a shocking week losing many celebrity figures as well. They are always in a better place, even though I know that dosen't fill the void. I have lost so many people to cancer sometimes you just have to know they are not in pain anymore and whatever may lie on the "other" side will be so much more peaceful. If there is anything we can do, even if it is just to listen please let us know. ((hugs)) At least there is some happy news as well. Weddings are always wonderful. Nothing better than to know 2 people have found their soul mate. The world can always use more love.

Hi Chartreux:

It's good to have you back, but I'm sorry that you are hurting so bad!

Congratulations on your daughters graduation. My oldest son just graduated from our local community college, and is going on to Cortland University (Upstate NY), for his Bachelors and maybe even his Masters. He is the first child on either side of our families to go to college, so we are incredibly proud of him.

I hope you are able to get some rest and recover in time for the holiday weekend, and that you are able to enjoy it with a low pain day!

Char wow, you have had alot on your plate. I do hope when you see the dr next week he can help. I am so sorry to hear about loss of the loved ones, it just so hard. It was good that you had the graduation party and wedding going on, a little distraction some times can help. Hugs coming your way.
