Exactly. A vacation, NOT a guilt trip!

babe, you were a much happier girl when you were pouring your time and energies into that huge dressmaking project of these past few months. you've not had sufficient time to readjust physically and emotionally to your former daily routine. recognize this "down" feeling for what it is, a temporary hitch, and you'll soon regain the healthy outlook of your base. is there another outfit that's just begging for your dressmaking skills and attentions in the near future, by any chance? please forgive me if i come across as pedantic--it's my social worker background....

The first thing you need to get rid of is the guilt. Guilt is pointless. It accomplishes absolutely nothing! It just ruins part of your life.

Getting old sure beats the heck outta the alternative. I don't care what is wrong, it beats pushing up daisies in the cemetery!

In my retirement, I do nothing I don't feel like doing. I don't have a moments regret and wouldn't know guilt if it bit me in the butt!

Relax Babe! Ease your mind, kick back some and enjoy doing nothing but breathing! It's good for you!!!!

You should see my yard! I haven't mowed it in 3 weeks. I think I saw a Giraffe's head out there above the grass! I couldn't care less! I'll mow it when I feel like mowing it and not a moment sooner!

I have a twin!? It must be an imposter. Catch it and tickle it until it reveals it's true form. (Now that creates an interesting mental image.)

I just downloaded a new puzzle game I purchased. After about 5 minutes, I started hearing audio only ads. Has anyone had that happen?

I restarted my computer and turned the sound back on and haven't heard one since, but that really rattled my cage. Audio Spam???????? NOoooooooo!

My other vent involves the puzzle games.

I've have Super Collapse Puzzle Gallery 2, 3, 4 and 5. After reaching each million I had been able to post my score and it is ranked with global scores by other players over the last 24 hours. It's been fun comparing my scores with others'.

A couple of days ago I stopped getting the Global scores. I contacted GameHouse Support, (twice), but they weren't able to help.

I hadn't made changes to my computer recently, so I:

Changed my virus protection program
Re-installed one of the games
Did a System Restore to before the problem with the games as well as before the last two automatic updates

Nothing worked. I finally tried the GameHouse forum and posted a question about it, but I have my doubts about getting an answer. The forums aren't very busy.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, I feel a little better.

The 7 shade trees I received for free from the city all came in 5 gallon containers. I was expecting larger trees in 15 gallon containers. I'll be dead by the time these trees mature and provide enough shade to my house.
