    When you say Marty, I think of Mr Alien from The Point of No Return...

      That doesn't matter, because once you're fit again you'll lose it no problem

      And that has to do with..... what? Our Martin is not a 'Marty'

        You bet I will lose it. I told my husband to call the guy Martin and he did. I don't think the guy liked it though. I was just pickin' on you. Whew, don't mess with Jumble's Martin.

        Heading out, taking the kids to the mall. I'm going to rent one of those scooters that you can ride around in. Watch out people here I come.

          I don't really know why I don't like him being called 'Marty', there's nothing logical about it............ I just don't like it

          Oooooh! Those things always look like such fun! Not fun if you're stuck in one I guess, but still...........

            Oh, wait.... I need the money to do the awesome things
            I'll tell you why, and all though it starts out as a downer, it won't end up that way - trust me!

            Well, working since I was 18, going to college, enjoying most (not all) of my life helps. Also having saved (but not enough) money helps. But to be totally honest the reason why I did this is because my mother passed.

            I couldn't have been more devastated. Her doctors (all of them) said she would survive her cancer. She did, but the treatment was too much for her and it killed her. I was filled with anger - more than I can express. But each night (although I don't really remember it much) I felt my mother come to me as I slept telling me anger is not the way to live. I needed to open and blossom. Mind you I was also approaching my 60th birthday - so if I was to blossom I needed to put a little rush one it!

            Slowly the anger left me but I didn't know what to do to "blossom." Then it came to me, I love to write, I've been writing all my life but never did anything with it. So I started writing short stories then longer stories. Then one day I woke up and had the answer. I was amazed. It was so clear. I would move away for Seal Beach (So. Calif) and move to somewhere I would be happier - which was the Seattle area. (I first looked into Vancouver, but I was too old for them - that's another story). So I started packing. Then I gave them 2 months notice, told my friends, my family, my cats (they were coming with me) and made it happen. It was the best thing I could have done.

            Everyone thought I was crazy (except me and my mom!). Now, everyone realized it was the right thing to do. They all say I seem really happy (I am) and that I'm doing very well (absolutely)! I've even sold a few very very short stories. And, now I am writing a book. Actually I'm rewriting it...and rewriting it....that's the way it goes sometimes. A murder mystery and I think it is good. I hope to sell it and make a little money. And I have a second book that needs to be edited as well and a third and forth one (and a possible fifth one). They are only in the beginning stages but I have the ideas for them already.

            This is the life I was meant to live.....it just took me 60 years to realize it. Then for icing on top of the cake....I met Jumble and Sarai and all you Woohoos...... Life couldn't be much better (except the cherry on top - selling my book - which I believe will someday happen).

            So now you all know (a portion of) my story. Probably very typical of most. Thing is one lesson I learned along the way. Life isn't over until you take your last breath. So don't EVER give up on it.

                It will, definitely

                And that's something I've learned this last year, and I don't intend taking mine for a good while yet.

                My life was a lot different from yours. I've spent most of it taking care of other people (kids, grandkids, minded kids etc), but Michael taught me that I matter, my life matters, and it really is about time I started to enjoy the things that I love doing, and dong that with the people that I enjoy being with

                I just wish I'd been able to be with him all those years ago (neither of us was free), because I'm sure my life wood have been so much happier and gone in a totally different direction. But it's no good looking back at what might have been. Best to look to the future and do the best I can with it. Which I fully intend to do

                  Maybe because he doesn't refer to himself as Marty? I don't know if he does or not But I've never heard it.

                  I won't! That's an amazing story for the ending, that you're still experiencing (so ending isn't the right word!). Better late than never to blossom. I've never read your work, but I hope you get your book! *hugs*

                  I recently learned not to let work stress me or worry about a career -- it does nothing but give you wrinkles and a sad face. That's not what life is for.

                    Wouldn't you know it....I spill and everyone has left. Oh well. No, mustn't do that, I must behave (sort of)!

                    Oooooh, someone did read it....my mistake.

My range of motion is good, need to continue my physical therapy. The screws (that attached my new ligament to my patella and femur) aren't dissolving quickly, so another month with my knee brace locked at zero degrees. That means no driving! I thought I would have some sort of motion by now with the brace. Ugh! Oh well, it will come. At least I can walk around strait legged, soon with no crutches.

                    Everyone....get your track shoes on and watch out.

                    Bree - have faith....I would think if the doctors were really nervous about it you would be taking the test now instead of chatting online. Here's hoping they are just taking precautions!

                      He doesn't. He always says 'Hi! I'm Martin Wood!'. I've only ever heard RDA call him 'Marty', and you know how I feel about him

                        One short story was published in such an obscure magazine that it went out of publication about 6 months later. As for the books...they have yet to be published. I am just starting to "feel my way around" so I can find an agent and then sell the book. Here's hoping!

                          I love life stories.
                          As long as it's not ''Oprah style'' with clapping people in the background. I love life stories from WooHoos.

                          It was a very long morning at the doctors. Got there at 8:30 and got home at 11:30. Complete physical. Good news is my heart is extremely healthy. Doc was happy with the 24 lb weight loss too. My blood pressure is too low for anything helpful with the migraines so I am still stuck taking the two pills that stop a headache from becoming a migraine (some of the time ).

                          The not so good news is that when a doctor is feeling your neck and says the words "that doesn't feel right" your heart kind of leaps into your throat. Especially since your big bro' had tongue and throat cancer. When I get back from vacation (possibly before if they can schedule it) I will have to get an ultrasound. There is only one specialist that she trusts to do the job right so I will have no choice but to venture into New Haven. I don't like driving into New Haven.

                          Other than that all is well.

                          Can't wait until next year! I finally get to meet my fellow WooHoos! "bounces*
                          Yay on the good part!
