Anniversaries, presidencies, tacky money and dancing giants. [Jan. 20th, 2009|10:18 am]

[music |Lean On Me, Ironically.]

Hey all.

I'm sad to see that some friends have left me behind, but I suppose it's what I deserve for being out of contact as much as I have been. I want to apologize for those friends who have still stuck it out with me. Life's been throwing some blows my way, and I just haven't been able to find real stable ground, so I intend to post more often. I miss you guys like crazy, so I hope you understand that sometimes real life gets in the way.

Five years ago today my Mom died, and truly, I don't think the ground has been stable since. But I guess that's part of getting older, as much as it hurts.

It's a little bittersweet for me, given that the inaugration is today, I really pray that hope has a chance, and that things will get better. I think it's possible. Something has to change, and I think right now this is our best chance. So I'll raise a glass, no - two glasses, one to drown the sorrow, and one to welcome a change. I won't disclose the order of glass-raising.

For those of you who have stuck it out. Thanks. I am so glad to have you as friends, and those who have left, I understand why, but I'm still sad to see you go.

And.. really? This actually exists? That's sooooo tacky and awful. It makes me sick.

So... to make up for it. A caption contest of ginormous hilarity.

Happy Inauguration Day!
(((hugs))) I am sorry for your mother's loss. It's hard...
I hope you are feeling better and that you are healthy.
How is your dad? How is Little Random?

Thanks honey. *HUGS*

Dad's doing good, and Little Random is great. He's excited to bring Grandma some flowers at the cemetary today. He woke me up this morning with those words actually.


I picked up some nasty ear-nose-throat thing on the plane, or at one of the airports, I think. But my immune system is kind of always at risk for that. I had a great time in New York overall though, and so if I'm sick now, I guess it was worth it.

How are you and yours? I'm sorry it's been so long since we've chatted. I think of you often. *Hugs*

there is a dollar coin out there of the same variation... absolutely ridiculous.

we have renamed our change jar 'the obama jar ' out of protest...(previously 'the diaper fund') but i guess you can like him if you like, more than enough people agree with you.

I'm still here.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom--I lost my grandpa (mom's side) seven years ago--I miss him so much.

As for Obama, I will be watching cautiously and hopefully--one to see if he is up for the challenge, and two to see if he is as bad as my dad said when he said "I think we've elected the antichrist"

And I'm sorry about your Grandpa.

And I sure hope he's not the Anti-Christ. Then I voted for the Anti-Christ, and that would blow. ;)

How was your trip? I hope everything went well. I know dealing with the death of a loved one is difficult, and I'm sorry.

That commercial was definitely tasteless!

Yay, Obama!

I'll be thinking of you as you toast a day of sorrow and change.

I'm really pleased to hear your Dad's doing well and I'll be still here sitting around ready to comment when you post - I'm not going anywhere!

I'm so sorry about your mum. My parents and I are in the works of doing the whole will/living trust thing, it scares me to death. :( *hugs* Bittersweet indeed this momentous day is.

Caption: "And then I had to spoil it all by saying something stupid like 'I love you'..."

"One, two, cha-cha-cha, three, four, cha-cha-cha"

And I'll drink a whole bottle of wine, half for forgetting the past misfortunes and the other half for future celebrations, all of ours!!!

I believe in quality, not quantity. I still don't know why you chose me as a friend, but I'm very grateful that you did. I'm not going anywhere, either. I love your posts, no matter how infrequent. I rarely post, but I do comment.

Happy Inauguration Day. I watched the ceremony live this morning - it was so inspiring. I wish we Canadians had a leader like Obama right now - instead of our nasty, small-minded, schoolyard bully. I can't even bear the sight of him.

I just passed the 25th anniversary of my mom's passing. It's tough being without your mom. {{hug}} Whenever you're missing her most, give Little Random a big hug and know that she knows you've done good. xoxo

Thanks hon. That's how I usually get by. :) It's always harder this time of year, though, December - January is always pretty much crap. I wish I could not always get in a funk, but I can't seem to help it. *hugs*

And yeah, bully's are no fun. :(

A lot of us are still here!

Try to think of what your mother would want for your life. She would want you to move on, to remember her but to live your life with zest and love. Live life, love life, enjoy every day and enjoy every sandwich. Do all she'd want and expect of you. She would want you to be happy. Be happy.

We have a real president again. We have someone informed, engaged, thoughtful, understanding. Gone is arrogance and incompetence, and a fool surrounded by more fools. There is hope after all.

And yeah. I know. But somehow that doesn't make the hurt less. I know it should, logically I get that, but my heart doesn't seem too. Wish it did.

And I know, right? I hope things get a lot better now. Here's hopin'.

You have our condolences on the loss of your mother. Five years isn't so long when it's someone who took care of you since the beginning.

And on the lighter side of life.

I'm not going anywhere, especially when my LJ friend needs a little support. Hang in there. I'm sorry for your loss. My mother's own anniversary of her passing is coming up on the 30th so I feel what you're going through. I do hope changes are coming our way. I'll do what I can to stay on the brighter side. Your posts always make me smile. Feel better soon. :)
