Mean People Suck

I've decided that mean people suck and that's usually all they do. I had an interesting week filled with some bitchiness, some reality and disappointment but such is life. I left an online support group which I loved out of principle and despite the reason, it still stings. Oh well, life goes on. Along these lines, it was truly a matter of principle..I wouldn't let someone disrespect me or people close to me in real life and this was no different. I just wish it didn't matter. I guess in the end it doesn't because the people who matter most in my life are here. (sigh) I realize I've been bad with updating this blog considering there is a lot going on in my life but sometimes things just get away from you. Life is good, I can't complain. Recently I met this great young woman who works in my same field. She's stunning, bald and still laughs at life through her chemotherapy. I told her to slap on some big gold hoops and she'll be setting fashion trends for years to come. If you have to be bald, pray you have a nice shaped head (unlike my ex, who I affectionately called egg-head). Work is good and I've been doing more consulting again. I just wrote a curriculum for NYS Early Intervention on Cultural and Linguistic Diversity and it passed first review with one suggestion to add in a sentence. The woman before me got ripped apart. I felt bad for her, good for me....NO REVISIONS!!!!!!!!!!! How fabulous am I? So I sit here waiting for MP (aka man person) to arrive so we can leave on our first weekend away together. I hope I don't kill him ;-) I'm getting ready to pass the 14-month mark of waiting for fortune cookie aka Mei Ling and I estimate I'll be waiting another 10-14 months. I can't until it's my turn but right now I'm happy to celebrate with Michele and Chuck, currently in Vietnam picking up baby Benajmin and Nic and Tim will be going to Vietnam this summer to pick up baby Zubin. I'm very happy for them both. Well that's it for now.....til next time

I've been wondering what was up with MP... a weekend away, you'll ahve to email me offline and let me know what kind of weekend you've got/where you're going... a married person like me needs to live vicariously through others :)

Yahoo! My snarky ass friend is back to blogging. I've missed you so chickie. Tell me more. I miss the updates on the MP, though you certainly can email me the details and not put it out there for all to see. LOL. Now that I know that you are writing again, I will be sure to check in regularly.

Where ever you went for the weekend, I hope you have a great time. You certainly deserve it with all the stuff you've had going on lately. And you will surely have to let me know when you are local again. I hear Delmonico's calling our names. Hugs & Bugs!

I am so glad to see you blogging again. It sounds like you are busy and busy trying to feel better. I hope you do feel well soon. I am so sorry that you had to leave a support group. That just sucks. Please know there are people out there who care about you and route for you in life.

And, I hope you have a fabulous weekend away!

Beth, You are SO right. The special ladies above your post are the reason I have the support I need. As I told my gal pal Nic the other night, she is the sister I never knew I always wanted. I started this journey ahead of her and her baby boy will come home this summer. It's all about the people you meet along your way, how they enhance your life, etc. If you ever want some Chinese lessons or culture, my friend in Denver in a doll and knows of little Shayna Punim.
