Dear Flist,

If you haven't already, please go check out the auctions going on over at [livejournal.com profile] rescue_rowan. You'll be seeing this a lot from me over the next month or so as she tries to raise money for her move. There are some amazing things for auction, things that would make perfect Christmas/Yule/Hanukkah/Winterthing/etc. gifts, and you'd truly be giving a gift to two people at once if you purchased them.

Direct donations are also very much appreciated via Paypal to:

rowangolightly (at) gmail (dot) com

Thank you for your generosity!!

Da Bob


Dear Amber,

I know you are feeling pretty vulnerable right now. It will be okay. It is not a reflection on you. What will be, will be. Breathe, hon. It is what it is, and you can't control the actions of other people. Wait a few more days, do what you have to do, and don't let current events spoil your memories of the experience, if you can help it.

You Are Worthy.



Dear Devon (aka Smog),

This time eleven years ago, I was hooked up to monitors and an IV that would encourage you to make your entry into this world. You didn't make an appearance until almost 8 in the evening, and you changed my life. It's crazy to look at you now, all gangly legs and freckles, and remember that you were my little turkey baby, my little peanut, my little bullfrog. I miss the baby you were sometimes so hard that it aches, and I admit that I occasionally dread the teenage years ahead of us, but mostly I love the tween you are now, even when I'm frustrated with your rare rebellion.

Don't grow up too fast, and don't pull away too soon.

I love you so much,

Mommy (always)


Dear friends from Pub Night,

Don't forget to journal the bookcrossing books you picked up last night, if you don't mind. You can stay anonymous, or if you want to see where the books go when you are done with them, you can register. I'm apocalypticbob there, too, if you want to use me as your referring member. If you join, please add me over there, too!

If you journal the books, I'm far more likely to keep bringing them to Pub Night and giving you dibs on free books...just saying.

Love ya!

BookCrosser Bob


Dear Calendar,

I'm torn, looking at you. I know there are awesome things ahead, things I'm looking forward to attending, friends I'm looking forward to seeing, and yet, there they are. All those red letter days, those pre-printed words glaring up at me from the page, reminding me that I am, once again, alone for the holidays. I'm frantically filling my days with activities to avoid actually thinking about it, but that really doesn't work and we both know it.

If it weren't for the weather, I'd be ready for January already.

No love,

Hit a bad spot last night. Called my system into play, and thankfully [livejournal.com profile] okcountrygirl was available to talk. Doing better this morning.

Frustrated because I fell in love with a dress on eBay and was going to buy it for The Longest Night Ball but the bidding has gone higher than I was willing to spend, so now have to come up with plan B. If I were more confident in my sewing skills, I'd make myself something, but I just don't know if I'm up to evening wear. Garb is one thing, evening wear is another. Still, I'm going to go look at patterns to see if I can find anything I think would suit and be within my skill set. I just really don't want to wear garb or a dress I already have. Yeah, technically I could wear the black cocktail dress I wore to Kim's wedding/ RENT, but I'm vain enough that I'd like something new when going to an event where everyone else will be dressed to the nines.

Had Smog's birthday party yesterday, and it was a lot of fun. Took him and a couple of his friends to play laser tag at Laser Quest in Tulsa. Great place...very enthusiastic employees...just a blast. One of the boys' mother wound up coming and hanging around with me. While the boys were in for their first run (I bought them two runs each), she and I decided it looked like so much fun that we added ourselves to the second run. I had never done laser tag before...it's a great workout, even though you aren't supposed to run. You get to chose code names and everything. Since I had been joking with one of the employees about Twilight (he asked if I liked it, I replied that I did, he fired a toilet paper gun at me, I joked that I had breasts and was obligated to like it, he fell down behind the counter in hysterics) I chose the code name Fang, just to further pick on him. Too funny! I'd definitely like to get a group together later this winter and go do laser tag again. It's $8 a person per run, and you'll really want to go twice, but I think they have group rates if we can get enough people interested. Sometime after the holidays, expect a laser tag outing. I took the boys for pizza at Pizza Hut afterwards, and then we went home, dropping off boys as we went.

Shortly after we got home, one of Smog's neighborhood friends came over and asked if he could spend the night. I allowed it, and considered going over to Stillwater to see New Moon, but I figured the theater would still be crowded and I'd like to wait until the crowds die down a bit.

Had a second date Friday night with a local guy named Alex. I'm still not sure where it is going, but we had a good time and I think we are going to see each other again. And that's about all I'm going to say about that at this time.

The next couple of days will mostly be spent in preperation for my trip to Texas this coming week. Going to be a long drive and a busy weekend, but a lot of fun, hopefully. We need to get our TRF tickets ordered, so we need to determine how many days we are going. Must talk to [livejournal.com profile] ladyniniane about that.

I'm trying to decide if I'm coing up to Pub Night tonight. On one hand, I REALLY want to see [livejournal.com profile] the_jenny_of_oz...it's been way too long. On the other hand, I'm so freaking exhausted. After talking with [livejournal.com profile] okcountrygirl last night, I went and laid down and pulled the blanket up over my shoulders and was asleep before I could turn off my bedside lamp. It was more like passing out than sleeping, and it wasn't incredibly restful. The night before, I slept well and hard, but not nearly long enough, as Smog woke me up at 7 am to talk about some commercial he'd seen on TV (he almost didn't make it to his own birthday party.) I'm trying to decide if I'm up for a third late night in a row.

And that's what's going on with The Bob. What's going on in your world?
