Always I have considered myself as an open person. There are some things I don't offer for safety's sake. After that, I share whatever I think my benefit someone or is at least worth a try. 99% of all that is from my own experiences and quite personal. However since I have started my self awareness blog prompts, I have found I'm not quite as open as I have thought.
The blog prompt is: Day 09 Ā® Someone you didnĀ't want to let go, but just
Answering this, I discovered this is about someone I felt deeply about and it is difficult to let anyone know just how much. Because of this, I blogged in my private journal instead. So I apologize to my buds because my intention was to share something with you about each prompt. Today I just could not do it. I know everyone will understand, but still, I feel bad about wanting to keep my feelings on this topic to myself.
Have any of you ever had a similar experience? One where your intentions were quite good, but things turned around for you in the end and you found you couldn't do it. How did it make you feel?
And now for a technical update about how SP site can't make up its mind when it lets me do which action it wants to permit.
Since Monday I have been able to huddle, but still can't post in the team forums. Yesterday I couldn't add anything to my other goals which was frustrating when trying to continue on my streaks!! One day I also could not comment on SP member pages. I also couldn't get the bonus points from the wheel and the login spinner would go so far and stop and just sit. Then it would go around again with the same outcome, finally it finished spinning and logged the points for me. This entire thing has been so frustrating I have simply wanted to scream. Most likely the entire thing is my own fault anyway. I have been praying for help being more patinent. I probably don't have to mention that I'm not much of a typist and my spell check on SP hasn't worked in months. For someone like me with typos, this is a tragedy!
Does everyone have plans for father's day this Sunday? Is it celebrated in other countries at this time, too or even celebrated at all? Bob got his presents from me early. Yeserday we picked up the blue-ray player I had chosen and today "Saharra" in blu-ray arrived in the mail. He connected the unit and watched the movie when it arrived. He was really surprised with both gifts. I want to take him for a nice dinner, but the place I want was closed to anymore reservations when I called last week. So, I asked him when he'd like to go. I didn't tell him where, but he knew! I guess that's because it is one of his favorite places, but it is a ways away and we don't go there very often. It is sort of a buffet. You have a choice of a meat, then there is a salad bar and a hot veggie table. You can order off a menu if you'd rather do that. They also have a terrific dessert bar for those who wish to have it extra. Since I can no longer eat sweets, I don't even have to think of it. However the reason people drive there from all over and Bob loves it so much is because they serve what I have been told and read reviews about is the lamb they make is the very best you can get. One lady who travels all over the world told me she had eaten in some of the finest restaurants in Europe and North America and hasn't found any lamb as good as they make. I'll take their word for it as I rarely eat meat any more. You can also chose to have salad and veggies only, too. Most likely that is what I'll do. If you only go once, but can't finish they permit you to take it home if you wish to do so. That policy works well for me since I have to test so many things to see if I can eat them. I found Ranch dressing is no longer an option for me as it burned my mouth so bad tears can to my eyes. Most of the time I use cottage cheese as a dressing. Once in a while I'll use blue cheese on the side and dip into it rather than let them go all over. I end up using a very, very little of it doing it this way.
How do y'all feel about buffet's in general? This place keeps cold things cold and warm things quite warm and change things over every hour so it is always as fresh as possible. And believe me it is all so good, most of it goes quickly and this isn't a problem. That said, I know it is at others and I refuse to eat at those.
Peace and Love and blessings to each of you. I thank you for all your love and support.

Today is D-day for Americans. 12 years ago on this date, Bob and I met face-to-face for the very first time!! So it is an anniversary of sorts for us. I had a therapy appointment today and when he mentioned it to my doctor, he said his wife is the same way and he concedes to her and they celebrate.
Before I tell about other things, I have to mention after three plus years, I'm going to be getting a new doctor for my therapy and I'm not going to see him until the end of August. My doctor now is moving across the state and I must say, I'm going to miss him tremendously. He was my fourth doctor at Shands and we clicked immediately. When he left the part of Shands where I was a patient, he took me with him to another part of UF where he stayed until now.
To tell you an example why I liked him so much is when I was going through all my treatments and couldn't get to see him, he had Bob email him a weekly update on how I was doing. Then when I had to go to the hospital and they needed info on his records, he text messaged with Bob to be sure they got the right info right away!! I have said it before, but I have had the greatest doctors caring for me. They all get to know us and personally interact with us and that is simply unheard of in these days.
We had a celebration of sorts. We went to Red Lobster for lunch. There was way too much food and all I could handle was a cup of soup, most of my salad, and one bite from my entree, and nothing at all of my dessert! Needless to say, I stayed within my nutritional tracker points for the day.
It was another day with an upset stomach, too. I wish I could locate the triggers, but I can't seem to do it as it is so random - even with the time of day.
We stopped at a Walgrens to get some medicine to help me feel better. We stayed until I did and it put us home later than normal, but it was still light out.
Bob even gave me an anniversary present or two or three!! A new blouse, a new pair of jeans that I'll blog about later in the week, and a bookmark that is breast cancer positive words in holigram form. Everything is really nice, but that bookmark is beautiful!!
When we first met on that fateful D-Day, I was visiting my friend in the Twin Cities and he drove from just south of International Falls to meet me! I was with C and her hubby at the time and I had my former Sgt. check him out with his local PD. Sometimes it's good to have been in law enforcement! Anyway, I wasn't afraid of meeting him nor being alone with him. When I first saw him I knew right away who he was. We were both nervous and like teenagers, blushing like crazy! But I have to say, we were driving from the airport to C's home and when I asked him to stop, he did so right away and I knew I loved him and he was THE one!! You see, my ex never stopped on a trip unless we needed gas or he wanted to - it never matter about what I wanted or needed for that matter. So this was a very welcomed change.
When I think about how quickly everything happened between us, I'm amazed. He has been wonderful to me and for me. I'm sure most of us feel our husbands are special, but I'm lucky because I know mine is. My entire family feel the same way and have told me how happy they are to see me laugh and smile so much and how they know by the way he treats me that he really loves me.
It's late and I need to finish here and do some emails, then get some rest.
Thank you all for being my buds. I am so blessed to have all of you along with such a good man. God really knew what he was doing when He brought all of us together. Just as Bob came into my life when I needed him most, so have all of you. This journey wouldn't have been quite so successful for me without any of you.
Peace and love to each SP Bud.
