So I've been reading my friends' pages and it's true - they no longer journal, just as I no longer do.

I need to start writing every uninteresting event which occurs. If I can't read you guys, I suppose I can always go back and read myself.

Today was another auction day, and I won't expound on that. Kelsey had to go to work early this morning, and has school tomorrow, so I'm hoping between now and then, she'll finally get some sleep.

We also won't discuss her driving and how many cars she's been through. I'm an excellent driver, so we can't blame this on /me/. :> I'm just glad she's safe each time.

I'm having trouble with a lot of neighbors who find "my yard" the perfect area for their freakin' dogs to do their business. I don't know what it is about this lot - besides my rock of power - but I'm sick to death of tromping through dog shit to get to the laundry, and have made it a point to SIGH and COUGH loudly when they're around. Mitzy's owner is about 7389473289 years' old and thrice daily screams C'MON LET'S GO, as if Mitzy speaks English. HELLO BUDDY, BUT THEY HEAR YA IN ETHIOPIA; DO YOU HAVE TO KEEP SCREAMING COMMANDS IN /MY/ YARD? I'm /really/ tired of him. Since I am, however, a dog lover, I resist any type of serious revenge, like OH I DUNNO RAT POISON? Can't blame the animal for the owner's stupidity, eh?

Nevertheless and despite what I'm saying, today's a fairly good day for me. It seems like the cold I've been fighting is almost gone, and I actually got a good night's sleep last night. Miracles never cease, especially when you're looking for them.

NOTE TO FRIENDS WHO READ THIS: Pleaaaaaase start updating. Maybe we can all inspire each other to write, eh? I'll try to keep up if you guys do. My friend's list is like a ghost town. I'm happy to see, however, that one of my formerly quiet friends is updating seriously. :D He's a good writer, so I enjoy his entries. And as usual, Ayoub and Writerwench are keeping up with their daily goings-on, too, with all the birthdays and phone calls and meals :D :D Everyone else seems to be quiet. Did Live Journal just become too boring, or were we all disgusted with anonymous comments? Hmm.

I really should do some work today, but am totally unmotivated. I'm through with today right NOW and plan elevating my right leg and watching movies on Netflix for the rest of today. Those movies, however, only go so far...I think I've watched all the highly-rated movies, and now it's slim pickins'.

Here's a recent pic, for those who haven't seen me in ages. And this was AFTER a hair cut. Yikes.
 



And that's about all for today, or for now. :> Be cool and remember that if I can update with nothing to say, surely you guys can, so that I may live vicariously through you :D

Nooooooooo. Reading your journal is like being reacquainted with an old friend :) :D Same with Writer Wench. :) Both of you guys are in Anglund, ironically. Maybe it's just the U.S. Live Journalers who are sick of it? LOL :)

Nice icon. lol :D I'm going to try and update as often as possible, even when I have nothing to say (today is a great example!). You should update - I noticed you haven't been lately (you and many others). What happened to us? All of my friends used to update frequently during the day and now nada. Did Facebook do it? I know I have a LOT of real life friends on there, and it requires one sentence only when you wanna :D Too easy.

I havent been updating much at all lately but its not LJ, its me. If I updated I would spend pretty much every update whining and no one wants to hear that so I just refrain. So, same old same old with me lol

You know, I was thinking that very thing today, while pondering what kept me away. I have more whining than joy going on right now, but you know...these are /our/ journals. I saw we whine all we want, rail against our collective storms and let the friends fall where they may. lol :D

How are you doing? How are the girls?

Im the same lol Shoulder is slowly getting better but it wont be better before the PT runs out. Kinda screwed on that front. Oh well.

Kids are ok, just going through the motions really. Britt is getting super freakin tall though. She needs to stop growing lol.

What happened to your shoulder?? Which is it - your left or right (I guess that makes typing hard, eh? lol).

Have you posted recent pics of your kids lately? Both of your girlies seem like they'll be tall! Tall is good :D

They dont know what happened to my shoulder exactly, neither do I, but somehow I ended up with a combination of AC arthritis and Tendinitis/Tendinosis of the Supraspinatus (its a muscle in the shoulder) and that combination has pretty much screwed my entire left shoulder. I lost range of motion by almost 75%, was in agony constantly, and pretty much couldn't function at all.

I have 100% range of motion back if I point in front of me and to the sky. I have 50-65% range of motion pointing directly out to my left side to the sky. In other words, I cant raise my arm above my head if I try to do it from the side but if I do it in front of me I can. Now, I only ever have pain when I twist the arm wrong or twitch the muscle wrong, or swing the arm wrong, or actually do something to the muscle complex. Before I didnt have to do anything and I was in agony day and night. So PT is working, but I only have like 3 sessions left before the year rolls over and so doth my deductible which is too high for me to pay right now so I cant continue. Oh well. I know the exercises, its only the steriod treatments that are the thing that I will be missing out on.

I've posted pics of Britt on my FB. The big brat doesnt let me take pics of her anymore lol

Wow. I'm sorry to hear that about your shoulder. It's amazing that you didn't feel whatever injury when it happened. I feel you on the deductible - I'm paying $60 to the freakin' V.A. monthly now on meds. It's crazy.

I'll have to go to your Facebook and see them. Kelsey wouldn't let me take her pic now for love or money. lol :D Okay, maybe money. She's in college now and working, too. Poor thing. :>

I'm sorry, did you say your life was uninteresting?

Very, very, very uninteresting ;p

Hiya, dollface. :)I know I should update as well. I just have a hard time lately thinking I have much of anything worth sharing, ya know?

See, we're ALL feeling like that. Let's blame it on the economy. I, for one, shall. lol :)

Don't EVER make another comment in my journal again, you psycho. The fact that YOU'RE STILL READING MAKES ME SICK.

What's with the dogs shitting in your yard? Can you turn the hose on them, or yell at their owners or something? That's seriously gross!

Heehee... well, I'm a shameless updater, totally obsessive about logging my days. Basically that's because my memory is becoming a little frail, so I HAVE to write down what I've done in order to remember it!

They're too lazy to walk their dogs to the dog area, and I have a wide patch of yard by my condo. Ugh.

I'm terrible about remembering stuff, too, and yet still, I'm not journaling about it. Plus it's all bad stuff, so... lol.

Nice picture! :D

It's funny because I've been involved in this therealljidol contest for the last year or so. The pro is that I update at least once a week (which is more than I would do otherwise). The con is that I'm less inclined to update between LJI entries.

I'll try to write a few more things a week, though. :D

Is it a contest? I'm out of it! Maybe we're just all burned out of LJ. I've been doing this since 2002. Yikes.

Disclaimer: Typing this as-is from my HTC Evo phone. Gotta work in the morning, so I won't bother correcting any mistakes. Very uncharacteristic of me, I know. That said....

Life is full. Full of friends, work, family, and more. It is an ongoing adjustment, but one I'm enjoying. I recently noticed Twitter isn't posting to my LJ like it's supposed to, so I need to look into that. I doubt anyone reads my LJ anymore except amagpa, but I promise to try and write in it more for you.

PS. You can read my tweets if you want (@jesusrock7), along with whatever pics are on my Twitpic account. Anything not addressed to someone else appear automatically on my Facebook as posts as well.

You don't have to write for me, girlie - write for you :) I've noticed that Twitter doesn't post anymore, too, nor does Facebook. Hmmmm. I hope you're doing well. :> I don't think we're on each other's Facebook pages.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
