It's been a while...

I've been having rather a tough time lately, emotionally, that is, so I haven't been blogging much. I can't seem to shake the feeling that since I have a terminal illness, there's very little point--silly, I know; it's like saying that everyone dies someday, so what's the point in living. I know intellectually that it's silly, but depression isn't always amenable to reason.

Anyway, I got kicked off eBay about a month ago because my daughter, who had been kicked off herself, listed with my account (and my permission, of course). This is no biggie, except that I miss the people on my eBay groups. A couple of them have sent me emails saying they're concerned about me, and I can't answer the emails since I can't use the eBay mail system. If any of you happen to check in here, I'm alive and still doing okay, and I appreciate your concern.

John and I took a couple of foliage drives this weekend. I was pretty grateful to John, because I know how much he hates to waste energy, but I was about to implode. It was nice to see the beautiful fall foliage in the Connecticut countryside.

Oh, and one wonderful thing happened...I met two miniature donkeys! We were driving down a country road and saw them, and I made John stop. They came right up to the fence and gummed my fingers, which I was sticking through the chain links trying to pet them. I think it was because I had just eaten an apple and the juice was still on my hands. They are so freakin' adorable. Plus, now I get to cross off another one of the 100 things I wanted to do in 1,000 days (see right hand column for url)--I had put 'make friends with a donkey' on there, thinking there was a very slim chance I'd run across any here in Connecticut. Just goes to show, you never know!

Well, I'm going to work on getting some creativity and humor back into my life, and I'll be sure to pass it along if I succeed. In the meantime, happy autumn!

Hello May!

I wanted to tell you this a long time ago...when I first saw you at Ebay. You remind me of my Aunt Mary, features are quite similiar...and they call her May!

Also, I think you have an awesome blog. You have an incredible way of writing, just an excellent writer!

Well, I'm gonna go look at some more stuff at our CAAT Ning site. I want to view some more artwork from everyone. So MUCH to see!

And the eBay group has moved over too. The A&AE group, hosted by Jillian, is over there now too!

Come on over! If yer not there yet!

Good to hear from you May. I know what you are talking about with the fall foliage - I live in Upstate NY and it is stunning. Glad you got a chance to experience it. Your new kitty is sooooo cute. I love cats and love visiting my mom's and sister's cats when I go home.

I need to consider getting one. Happy Halloween and Take Care!

Hi May (waving) I wondered why you had disappeared to from Ebay. I hadn't seen much of you on Facebook either. I bet you didn't have "kicked off Ebay" on your 100 things in 1000 days LOL. You are such a rebel!!!

Caat is on ning also. it is here:

This is another one I belong to. It has challenges etc (you don't necessarily have to list them on Ebay either: http://ata-challenges.ning.com/

Stay in touch.

Hi Lynne and Leola,

I answered both your comments, then Blogger told me it was offline!

Anyway, I'll just say thanks, Lynne, and I highly recommend your getting a kitty or two. They're much more loving than they're given credit for being!

Leola, you hit the nail on the head. I have always been a rebel :-) I'm on the CaaT ning list, by the way; I just need to post once in a while!
