I've noticed recently that a lot of people are opting to take a break from blogging, and some even from being on the computer. I can't stay off the computer because my editing business revolves around it. But I do think I'll join the TAKE-A-BREAK party and not blog anything for a short time. I may or may not CHECK blogs, but I most likely won't comment even if I do. And it's likely I won't be emailing much. It's been a TOUGH Summer here, and we still have at least 3 months of it to deal with. (Yes, OCTOBER is a SUMMER month as far as Houston goes - UGH!) I've been tempted to do this for some time but couldn't stand the 'withdrawal' from interaction. I think I'm good with it right now so it's time to see. I suspect I'll actually DO more - read more, create more, play ping pong more ...! And with that, I wish you all a wonderful rest of August and possibly September just in case I really DO make it that long without giving in! HUGS TO ALL!

One more time, I'm posting quickly. But I AM feeling SO much better and I can't tell you how tremendously much I appreciate the love and support my Bloggy friends have shown me. Turns out I had caught a stinkin' old virus in addition to being in the middle of a Lupus flare. The two combined to kick me straight into that Bipolar meltdown. HOWEVER ... the Lupus flare has settled down, the virus is 90% finished, and the Bipolar is once again under control. Those who truly know me, KNOW I hate feeling unsettled. I LOOK for stuff to make me happy, so having my joy yanked out from under me didn't thrill me. Note: I KNEW I was on the mend yesterday morning when my coffee tasted good to me for the first time in a week. Ahhhhhh! LOL! Anyway, I am going to SLOWLY catch up with everyone. And before I close this, Wednesday the 1st was my official weigh-in date. This nut has gone from 260 of May 7th to 221 as of August 1st! I have to say, I'm PDP! (Pretty darned proud!) I purposely choose NOT to show you actual before and current after shots until I have met my goal weight. However, in THIS picture (below) taken a few years back, I weighed around 225. Therefore, this - minus the 'longer' hair - is about my current size. So you will know, I ALWAYS airbrush my photos because I have VERY reddish skin from the Lupus. (I heard that, you sillies out there. You said that's because I'm a REDSKIN, right? BWAHAHAHA!) But the rest is plain old unadulterated, unfiltered me. Plain as dirt, and eyebrows thin, thin, thin thanks to chemo in the past. NOW I will go and try to get all my weekend stuff done EARLY so I can have Saturday and Sunday to craft and read and play and ... and ... and CATCH UP ON EVERYONE'S BLOGS!!! Again, this nutty Comanche genuinely thanks each of you for caring. As Ellen Degeneres always says when people applaud her, "Right back atcha'!"
