Sorry for being quiet lately. Honestly not terribly much to report.  A few dates, a new dungeons and dragons campaign, snow, renewed motivation to be better, etc.

@amberwaves
Dear Amber:
Wowzers......   my eyes are very happy to see your new post on your thread.
It is always wonderful to see your Avatar picture and read update posts of my favorite forums Redhead!!!

.... and yes, as @KathyLauren  mentioned it is so wonderful to hear your words about your social activities, and your renewed motivation.... 

Your update was short and sweet but I am so very glad that you checked in to let us know that you are still alive and kicking.

Hugs and many well wishes, 
Danielle

Hi folks sorry to be so silent lots of things going on but not much that I'm at liberty to discuss or that is very interesting.  Just checking in to let everyone know I'm still alive and kicking.  I'll be posting a more detailed update later today or tomorrow.  Hope everyone is doing well.

I'm not really kicking butt by any stretch.  I've worked hard to become a good person, but life does seem to be kicking me in the nuts that I wish I didn't have over that fact.  Honestly, I'm tired of trying to be a good person.  It seems to me that the who get ahead in life are those who are self centered. Currently reevaluating what I want to do and be.

Still working my crappy, low paying job.  No really good options have presented themselves.  I have until June to get the more situation squared away.  Lots of things to do and no time to do it.  The Amber #2 situation is still unclear.  Side income has been less than stellar.

I've got a few ideas and plans about how to move forward, but I'm not 100% sure I'm up to any of them.  I let myself go this winter and I'm back up to 240.  Not pleased by that at all.  Luckily the weather is slowly getting nicer so I should be able to rectify that in time. I still look okay, but it's not where I want to be.

Dating has been fun.  I do enjoy the excitement of meeting new people.  I've had lots of interest so I get to be the picky one for the first time in my life.  Unfortunately my busy schedule keeps me from really filling up my dance card.

Long time for an update. Truth is life has not been kind.  No better or new job yet. Put on weight due to stress. We lost the house.  My birthday is tomorrow and all I can think about is all the wasted time in my life.  Not that anyone particularly cares or likely more than barely remembers me here since I fell off the map months and months ago.

My Dearest Amber
OH, STOP IT !!!!!
I do indeed remember you, you are my favorite Redhead and you are not forgotten and I do care for your well being, and you must recall that we communicated very frequently last year and early this year but you indeed kinda stopped posting on your thread and on other threads.   

I am so saddened to read about your troubles.... I hesitated to bug you more that I did with my PMs and with my reply comments to your postings....   I sensed that you were in a difficult place in your life with relationships, your job, and your wife and family!!  I could not find all the words that I wanted to say to you to support and encourage you through your difficult times recently.

Tomorrow is your Birthday
and that alone is reason enough to celebrate and be happy for at least ONE DAY.
I am wishing you a VERY H A P P Y   B I R T H D A Y  
.... it is your own unique special day.

Please feel free to VENT here on your thread.... venting, writing out about your feelings and issues that you are dealing with is very good personal therapy... and as I have told you in the past, we are your biggest fans here, we will rejoice with you when you have good news to report, and when the news is not-so-good we are here to lend your our ears and to give you our shoulders to lean on.

Please come back more often....  you were gone for almost 4 MONTHS and you were indeed missed not only by me but surely by others that have followed your thread in the past.

MANY HUGS  and  more hugs....  wishing you the best as always,
Danielle

I thank you Danielle for the kind words. Truth be told the last few months have been some of the most terrible of my life.  I mostly choose not vent about it.  Unfortunately the future does not look particularly positive.  That certainly does make it hard to celebrate your birthday.  I'll honestly be amazed if I even make it out of bed tomorrow.

Hi Amber

I hope you do make it out of bed and not just tomorrow.

Happy Birthday...I hope you can manage some sembalance of happiness for it.

I have been a little preoccupied over the last few months myself with couple of little issues I have been dealing with. Maybe have a vent anyway...might at least make you feel a little better.

Welcome back and please share with us the things that are troubling...none of us may be able to help in a real way but you never know there are a lot of great people on this site and apart from that you may well just feel a little better for it.

Take care

Liz

Hi Amber,

Happy Birthday, girl! 

I still remember you fondly from our chance meeting in Dr. McGinn's waiting room last year.

I wish you all the best, and hope things start looking up for you soon.

With kindness,

Terri

Thank you ladies for the birthday wishes.  You have all literally succeeded in doing something my father was completely incapable of doing despite being my neighbor.
