I'm trying to focus on positive thoughts, she's a really lovely person and I know she will be OK.

edit: she wasn't OK... If anybody has any book or website suggestions about how to support friends and partners through grief, I'd appreciate a PM.

Am so sorry for your loss.

There are so many grieving this one.
Such a vibrant person.

Today was the "goodbye" before they cremated her. I know many are struggling to even wrap their minds around the fact that she is gone still.

Doing great.. just got back from a 10 day road trip. Totally kicked ass

however, I did learn something, I hate travelling and not doing. Sitting in the car and driving place to place, without a lot of time to play in some of my new favorite locations simply left me wanting more. I have more trips to plan to most locations we visiting. Rock climbing, mountain biking, kayaking and hiking.. Time for some adventure trips.

Doing great, decided to start dating again. jenn and I are talking again about seeing each other on as romantic level. She and I have another date at the end of the month. I am also talking to someone I met in okcupid. I responded to a unicorn hunter ad but only on a friendship level. The 4 of us have Bern having great conversations and plan to play magic tomorrow.

N and J are officially bf and gf now, even though they have been together a year and half, she finally asked for the title.

I created a profile a while ago on OKC just to see what the fuss was all about. I went back recently, didn't even put a pic up because I didn't think I'd stay... But I just found this really cute/awesome/OMG guy and did something I NEVER EVER did: I sent him a message o.o

Thumbs up

Work is going well (the asshole assistant manager got fired) and I have a few possible romances brewing.

Feelin' alright.

Left the attic fan on overnight and woke up to a crisp, chilly bedroom and a taste of Fall. Can NOT wait for my favorite season to get here...

I am doing great. I am supposed to be going to the gym at 6, but I think I am going to get back in the bed. Especially since I have to work this morning. Maybe I will try it again tomorrow while the duckies are at school.

I hope everyone is doing well this week.
