Wow... it sure has been a while!

*squishes f-list*

Hello, my dears! I know it's been a very long time since I've been around, and I have definitely missed you.

I found that I needed to distance myself from LJ for a while because it had become a bigger part of my life than was good. So while I've been gone, I've made friends with real life... can you believe it? And for the most part, it wasn't nearly as bad as I'd feared. Hee!

So what's been going on? Well, in brief...

Work continues as usual. I got a new job last summer (same company, different department), and I still have a lot of training to do to really feel like I'm a productive member of the team. The good thing is that I've learned a lot so far, and I'm still collecting my bi-weekly paycheck! heh.

In January I turned over a new leaf re: eating and exercise. To date, I've lost 49 pounds! Yay! I still have a way to go, but I'm thrilled with my progress so far. I feel so much better, both physically and emotionally, and I've recently started buying some new clothes to go with my new body.

Kids are doing well... both now graduated from high school and working; the younger one is also attending community college.

This week I'm on vacation, and I'm thrilled to be spending the time in California with the darling and ever-lovely skyblue_reverie. We've had a corking good time so far, and I still have another day or so before it's time to go home. I'll post a full report when vacation's over.

Yesterday we spent the day with rivers_bend, which was super fun. We saw butterflies and Iron Man and two Supernatural episodes and hung out and gabbed and ate dim sum and pizza (not at the same time... ewwww!) and had the best time evar!

Enough about me for now. How about you... what have you been up to? What's new and fascinating in your lives? Tell me all the news!

*big hugs and smooches*

I iz soooo happy to be here!!! :D *squees and twirls*

*hugs* Man, has it been a while - I was worried about you.

I'm alright. Life is better, and while it could be even better, I'm alright.

Recently I've been obsessed with roleplaying at LJ RPs. Lotsa fun. O3

Awww, you're sweet to worry. Like I said, my absence was due to a much-needed reality check.

I've really missed LJ! I'm going to see if I can successfully balance real life with this place.

Perhaps I need to start an LJ Anonymous group. "Hello, my name is MsLiz, and I'm an LJ-aholic."

Glad to hear that things are better with you. Sure, things could always be better, but if you can see any improvement at all, I call it a win. :)

Your kitty icon is adorable!

Good luck with the balancing act! Hopefully it'll work out this time and we'll see you more often. :)

Thanks!

Hello! I'm so happy to see you again! I was away for a while too between last August and March and I was a bit worried about coming back but it's still lovely, but now you have come back to post, I really feel like I've come home!

I'm totally with you on finding a balance between real life and LJ - found the need to do that myself, I need a reality check too, shame mine only came after being locked up in hospital!!!

Hope you're having a fun holiday :D it sounds as if you are!

Take care,

Luv Claire! xxx

Hi hon! I'm really happy to see you again, too! You are definitely one of the people I missed bunches while I was away.

Aww, the hospital experience sounds not very pleasant at all. I hope it helped and that things are looking better for you now.

I've been having a complete and utter blast during my holiday. The worst part? It's over today. Boo! We'll be leaving Sky's apartment in about 15 minutes to head out to the airport for my return flight home. I'll make a full posty on our doings in the next day or so.

Yay, you! *hugs close*
