    Morning Woohoos.

    Today is an anniversary day for me. It's the 7th anniversary of my mother's death from ovarian cancer. It's one of those odd days. I always commemorate the day with a donation to charity in her memory. Usually I choose a cancer-related charity, but this year I chose something new.

    I haven't shared my stories on the thread as those of you who've been around longer have, so I thought I'd share a blog entry I wrote last May on mother's day. Over here. Revisiting that entry today seems fitting since it still captures my feelings on the subject rather well.

    *big WooHoo huggles to all*

    Mom:
    [SPOILERS]
    Beautiful tribute to your Mom MoB *huge huggles*

    I understand exactly what you mean when you said that you knew when she left. My Mum passed away on a Sunday morning while I was at church. We were singing one of the hymns, and I just knew.

    While we were visiting family this weekend we went to my Mum's grave to lay a Christmas wreath on it. She always loved the real ones made with holly, so I was really pleased to find the little old traditional greengrocers where we used to buy them was still there It's been almost 7 years now since Mum passed away from leukaemia; as the kids get bigger, I miss her more every day *sigh*

    And yeah! on Tesla and J-Yo.



    I don't know. It's just sometimes when you catch up you read all the advise and experience and lovin' and life lessons and get all ''Ok, life can suck but this is the way to deal with it...''
    *huggles Woohoos* *nods* This is a wonderful thread


    Although having said that, it's also a thread that talks waaaaay too much! I figure if I carry on multi-quoting the next 30 pages I'll be here until after Christmas

    So...... is Friday on? *bounces hopefully*






    Vigilante
    Spoiler:
    I know what you mean, but I think I'm right

    Hm. Now that's the one thing that I didn't much like Unless they're going to follow it up with some interesting twist, I don't really see the point of it being there *shrugs*

    And I knew that bloody 'priest' was a bad 'un!





    Thanks Don't think I've had any dreams since SE

    Ah, I see. Yes, we're a veritable well of advice and experience.

    And lovin'
    That's because now you've met the real Man, dream!Martin has no appeal for you now

          I tried. I did, but because Sanctuary is that awesome, all my artwork turned out to have a different dark haired man in it...
          Seriously. Tesla just keeps showing up in the art to steal Martin's momentum.

          Being original is difficult when you can't stop quoting your favorite tv show, For crying out loud!

            Indeed it is

            Talk too much? Us? I have no idea what you're talking about

            You know, you might actually have something there

            Comment


              Totally forgot.

              *runs around nekkid* He he!

              And we don't talk a lot! We just...babble...drool...thunk...goggle....smoke...party...etc. You know...those are all different kind of things!

              Also I feel productive today(although I've been on the couch for most of it): I made a wallpaper, send in the last stuff or my VISA(and getting it really soon, since he put it in the mail today), updated my blog, replied on a bunch of emails, stalked my dad on the email, read a few fanfics and watched so far 3 episodes of Farscape!
              Now only if I could get myself active enough to wrap the Christmas presents!

                Some of us obviously just have too much time on our hands

                Actually, as it's Tesla/J-Yo I can just about see your dilemma................. but who says you can't make Tesla art for Martinmas? There are no rulez on this thread, remember

                  I miss my mom as well. She passed a few days before Mother's day which makes it hard each year. Kicks cancer also (and her stupid doctor for being so damn aggressive).

                  Now I must make the big decision....to go or not to go at Xmas to my brother's house. I probably should go even though I look like I've been dragged to Hell and back, but I'm so tired and feel lousy. Can't wear a mask! Hmmm. As much as I really would prefer to stay in bed for the next week until this passes...... I suppose I have to deal with my "family" obligations. And sadly, that is what this feels like.

                  I don't feel well enough to deal with anyone right now, but my s-i-l basically scolded me for even thinking about staying home! I'm not sure she is giving me much of a choice. Holidays can be such a pain. Can't we legislate against all holidays and make them days of relaxation and contemplation instead....unless you have little kids then you can celebrate Santa!

                  Did I ever mention: I HATE BEING SICK!!!

                      It makes me sad that I didn't have a mother worth missing In an odd way I miss...... not missing her

                      Laurie, you have the right to decide what is best for YOU! If you really don't feel like going you shouldn't let your s-i-l make you feel obligated. You DO have a choice! I believe that everybody should be allowed to spend their Christmas any way they choose. I know you want to see the little one(s), but you can always go for a visit at another time can't you? Take care of yourself and do what you really want to with your Christmas

                      Edit: *waves to 12 guests*

                      One really has to wonder what is so fascinating about this thread sometimes........... why don't some of you come in and tell us?

                            Hmmmm! wonders what goes on here behind the scenes to get so many guests interested in watching!

                            Ah Jumble, if it weren't that simple. I was "my fault" that Mom didn't go up for Xmas on her last one....I was healing from some surgery and had a complication....I told her to go but she wanted to be with me just in case. So she never got to see her Grandson.

                            Although it hasn't officially been brought up, it has been skirted around the edges a little always making me feel like a #@%@[email protected]# for not pushing her to go up there. She never got to see him again. My brother flew down after I told him she was a lot worse than he thought, but my s-i-l was a little ill and my nephew was in the middle of the police academy and it would be about anohter 3 weeks before he could get away. She never made it that long. So taking off anything just brings up hard feelings, something I can do without. Maybe I should move to another country and then I wouldn't have to deal with this.....I really don't enjoy Xmas very much anymore!
                            As for visiting at other times......not so much!
