Frozen Toezen

Wow,
It was nice to know that I wasn't alone in the way I was feeling yesterday. Big time thank yous for showing concern and care you guys... I had today off from work but went out of town to visit a friend. We spent the day helping the installers put in his new fireplace and then afterwards, me, him and his wife and the kids went to dinner at some very nice Italian bistro for which I was way underdressed... (I was in a sweatshirt and jeans)... It didn't matter, we had a very relaxing dinner. Just what I needed. Tried to do some work on my computer but it decided it needed a vacation too. I just got home and am very tired and the best thing is that I have tomorrow off from work too... I am, quite possibly, the happiest man on planet earth. Just being able to get some much needed sleep is exciting to think about. Getting excited over sleep... now that is a sure sign of old age, isn't it? I can't wait for spring to get here. I live at a lake (Lake Erie) and took a stroll on the pier today. It is so relaxing to do that but when it's ice cold and the wind is blowing into your face from off of the lake, it makes it a bit difficult to truly appreciate nature and it's splendor. Instead, all I'm thinking is "what in the world am I doing out here?" Only closely followed by:other random questions: "who invented liquid soap and why? Is it okay to yell 'movie' in a crowded firehouse? Why am I standing outside near the water, freezing my poop chute off and thinking about crap like this when I could be inside my house being nice and toasty warm???" Yes, I am a dork!

Mik, if you're unsure of your identity (whether you're a dork or not) please, do this test: http://www.csua.berkeley.edu/~sarahfsk/dork.html

Well, you're a nice dork ((hugs))

How old are you, Mik? I'm in a mid-life crisis and I turn 30 this summer.

Sorry I wasn't around yesterday-hope today is better

I am a 41 y/o (going on 12) DORK... okay, maybe not that bad... Let's just say I don't take myself too seriously and I can find reasons to laugh at myself. Maggs, I hope that you, in the midst of your mid-life crisis, find the strength to battle. Reading your posts, I am impressed with how well you are able to articulate what you're going through so clearly. That tells me that you can survive this. You know the old saying: 'The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step...' Well, I know you are going to make it Maggs. And when things are at their worst, find reasons to laugh. I know that sounds crazy, but then who ever said normal was perfect?? I know through personal experience that humor as a counter balance won't make your problems go away, but it can diffuse some of the pressure that builds up... YOU control your future Maggs, your future doesn't control you...
