Thread of Today VI

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Today I worked 12 hours, came home and unloaded hay bales, then cleaned puppy pens, then fed animals, then answered emails, then got on torc!

Tomorrow I plan to copy Ninui and take a nap.

LadyKat..how the heck are you? Feeling better?

Sorry to see that you left this beautiful area, Witchwench but am glad to know you are happy where you are now.

Got a break from the rain Today. Supposed to be rainless for the next day or two. Can always hope it's true

Today I only managed to do a couple of things on my to do list.

But I also did a few things NOT on my to do list, so I guess that counts.

Today I gave the road construction stop sign holder two slices of hot pizza...I unrolled the window and asked him how long it would be, then I gave him pizza. It was a fun day.

I wish I weren't so lazy.

Today a family member of mine passed away. I still don't know all the exact details of why, but what I do know is that it's absolutely devastating.

Aww, thank you :hug:
It's been rough. Last night I listened to "Into The West", which was both comforting and a little bit heart-wrenching - and what do you know, the tears I had been holding in all day started flowing as soon as I was listening to that song. I think I needed that, though: I had been trying to hold it in, to stay calm outwardly, but it was unbearable. I'm trying to have some time to just sort out my feelings today. Thank you all so much for being here. :TORC:

Thor'n I'm so saddened to hear your news. Death is an awful thing, and especially when it is so unexpected makes it all the more difficult to accept. I will leave you with a :hug: and one of my favourite LOTR quotes: "I will not say do not weep, for not all tears are an evil."

Thank you so much - we are doing our best, and we're making it through. It's been hard, but we're all comforting each other. Thank you so much.

Tolkien always has a way of making me feel a little better! Thank you.

Today I got my shiny back. I am a happy camper !! Thor-n- has only 153 more posts to get to his first 1000th post.
Am equally pleased to hear you and your family are doing well. Please come by and talk whenever you need to. Someone is always here on the boards.

Today I went shopping with my sister.

All the stores have their Christmas stuff out. It's like Halloween and then BAM!--- Christmas!

There is no Thanksgiving. :roll:

Today I am agreeing with LK. Thanksgiving got swept under the rug or something. It was my uncle Steven's favorite holiday

Today I got almost nothing done.

Spent most of the day waiting for my idiot landlord to show up and check out the leaky pipes in the bathroom.

Thanks Witchy. It took him almost 4 hours to complete the job.

Only twice as long as he thought so I guess that's not bad. :P

Sorry about your heater, but it's good you were able to get a new one.

You're right----much too cold to be without heat.

Today I am trying to decide on which chore I want to do first. Not that I want to do any of them. If I don't decide soon, I will end up not doing any of them. :D

Today I decided it was time I said "hi" again.

My main ID remains inactive and despite several attempts will unfortunately likely remain so. But at least I still have this old account kicking around :)

So... hello.
