~ Anniversary? Celebration? You bet! ~

Photobucket

Well... I started all this so I guess I best do an entry, eh? Well actually Guido started it by reminding me it was coming up. LOL I just thought it would be cool to do an entry... thought it would be cool for everyone to do one. I just did one for the first time since before Christmas. Ummm and yeap Guido again! Thanks Guido :) I guess it was the fact that I actually went back and looked at my journal. Yeap, not even sure everyone knew they got it over. I was notified while I was in the hospital with my heart. I never went to look. Sure, I scanned through it .. lots of pictures are gone. They are on photobucket so not sure why that happened but oh well, probably the size of the graphics.

Graphics... OMG.. Can you believe what I did? How many I made? Hmmmm and I will admit I thought I was pretty good ::evil grin:: Thank God they are backed up. I might rehash a few. I don't have it in me to do that every night. It was a blast but it's time to move on to something else. Ummm live the life a little more and tell it less........

So I went back through some of the entries.. it was fun. I remember things that happend to so many of you. Made me so greatful I met you all. The support you all gave me when I lost my sister. So many of you made me smile and remember... that I will never forget. Ohh and Pat's birthday is coming up. I still miss her every day. I want to pick up the phone... ::sigh:: When word spread I was sick.. OMG.. ya'll brought me to tears and let me tell you, you did help me get through it. WTF?!? throw me for a loop. Took a bit to get up and moving , then I fell. Geeeze talk about luck. But hey all is good... I'm getting back into things... and I feel great!!

Guys.... don't want to celebrate the downfall... lets celebrate the rising.. we had a blast.. if you didn't you wouldn't have stuck around :)~ Ok ok so the trolls... the drama.. but again we stayed and fought through it. I'm proud that so many of us have stayed in touch.. ok so it's facebook more now... but I sometimes think the fast jab or update lets us all know we are alive..... it's easier.. faster. I for one have missed everyone and hearing more about their life.. and I am trying to get back into the reading phase. I've done a few drive bys but not nearly enough.

Ohh and as an FYI I did purchase the Elias Football girls. The players not the cheerleaders... lol.. I am pressuring him ever so gently on Facebook... I want hockey girls too.... yeap I friended him LOL soooo ya know that means I will be doing a few tag offers. Football first so I can pimp him out... I'm even gonna enter a contest using one of his football girls... then he'll do hockey .... ya think? Lets hope

Hugs

You know I am up for hockey girls!!! LOL. Possibly baseball later maybe??? Glad that you are doing great! I have missed the entries though.

ADB said...

Photobucket is the culprit, they bump your pics off if you don't log in every 3 months or so. The big date was 21st August!

Indigo said...

Glad to see you posting again hon, missed your words. I'm one of those people who are seldom on FB.

I can attest to the fact, we grow stronger with what we endure. You've grown in a new direction and it suits you wonderfully. (Hugs)Indigo

Valerie said...

Memories =). I am grateful, too. I have met so many wonderful people over the past few years. I have seen their strength and courage and they have amazed me. I have also made so many wonderful friends. Time marches on, though. I am glad you are still blogging, Donna. Too many have stopped. Take care and God bless, Val xox

Hi hon, Hoping you'll remember me. It's been a long time between postings,and for quite awhile I lost sight of everybody. I have my "Let's Chat" now, but it used to be "Hey Let's Talk." When AOL shut down journals and I imported mine, for some reason they didn't go through...lost them all, except the story journal.
It is so good to see you back. I loved your graphics but enjoyed too reading about your family. Missed you. Have an awesome day.

Missy said...

Hey Donna. yes indeed, you did make some cute graphics. I still have all your tags in photo bucket :-)

Take care

Time has marched on Donna but memories always linger. Good ones as well as sad ones too.
It's good to know that you are well and enjoying your life. YOur heart scare will have made you take a closer look at how you live your life from now on. My cancer did. Always look on the bright side of life....
YOur tags were amazing! You are a clever lady.
Take care.
Hugs
Jeanie xx

I think we all miss our AOL journals but I suppose we should be thankful for the number of friends we met and kept there. If journals had never been then we'd all still be oblivious to each other. I'm so glad I met you through journals and though we've never met you're still as much a friend to me. I loved your graphics and still have a large store of them I've not used yet. Happy anniversary to you and your journal! I'll try to get round to doing an entry. Jeannette xx

Connie said...

I think your graphics were the first I saw when I came online.I think I asked for evryone you offered. I was ashamed of myself for being such a piggie,LOl. Then when you animated them,WoW..I knew it was magic. I had a blog (THAT word-)even back in J-Land days,but didn't do much with it.Have one that I can't get into because I am no longer Maxsox5..LOL

Lisa said...

i will always be grateful i was lucky enough to have met you thru Jland....you are the BEST.
and i love you.

Hollie said...

I have always loved your graphics & of course the wonderful pictures you take. It's so good to see you blogging again. I love FB, but I think blogging is more up close & personal. Love ya!

Missie said...

I don't remember if I gave you the link for my new blog.

Thank you for your friendship and answers to my many questions about graphics and things. I miss the old AOL J-Landers, but things always change here, on line. :::SIGH:::
