Reminiscing with new friends

Well, now that Sci-fi on the Rock 8 is over,, I get to sit back and relax a bit and try to write down all the fun and exciting things I’ve seen and done over the weekend.

Mind you that it’s been 3 weeks since all the excitement actually began, but I can honestly say that I felt that this one seemed to flow smoother then previous years.  Mind you we still had some things come up that we had to work around, or alter, but it all worked out in the end.

Our guests this year were awesome.  This year we had Erin Fitzgerald, Aron Eisenberg, Mike McCarty, Michael Hogan and the lovely Musetta Vander.

All these guest were lovely, fun and hilarious to chat with.  The weekend was just too short, wish they were able to stay longer.  I got a quick lesson in Qigong.  I tell ya right now,, unless your mind is closed, then you’re not giving this a proper chance to work.  I was iffy at first, but found the short time I had, it surprised me.

In fact, a few days ago I was having some pain on my right side that just wasn’t going away.  Well, not totally anyway, it would come and go.  I left it alone all day until I went to bed.  I laid there, and thinking of what Ms. Vander said to me, I concentrated on that one place.  Within 10 minutes is was gone.  And the best part, it hasn’t come back.  I know what I’ll be doing on Monday.  I may be a totally different woman by the time I’m done. 🙂

I hope they all come back again at some point.  If not because of the Sci-Fi event, then if they come here for some vacation. 🙂  There’s so much more of the island they haven’t seen.  And for those of us that know just how big Newfoundland is, they will be in for a treat if they do venture back.

I think the best part, albeit sad part too, was when we had to take them back to the airport for their trip home.  We didn’t leave right away, we had about an hour (or more) with them, but my daughter didn’t have school that day so she had to come with us.  I have pictures of her with each guest, and I want to personally thank you all for not ignoring her.  She enjoyed the whole experience, especially the poutine, lol.  Though, now when we have it as a treat she will sigh and say,, “I miss Musetta.”

If you get the chance to meet these awesome people, do so, you won’t be disappointed.

Well I’m being summoned by my daughter to watch a movie.  I doubt it will be any of the Hobbit movies, I got her drove nuts with them.  LOL

Until next time.

Fun times, amazing friends

Well today was a very interesting day. The kids had a snow day.  They love it.  I on the other hand,,, well let’s just say what with a hand that’s not 100%, shoveling can take it’s tole.  And with my hand hurting no matter what way I move it, I haven’t been able to commit to doing much writing.  Which totally irks me like you wouldn’t believe.   I was hoping to have so much written to have ready for it’s launch at Sci-Fi on the Rock 8 in May, but I don’t see that happening now.  Not with my hand the way it is.

I know, I know,,, if I’m able to blog, I should be able to write.  To tell you the truth, I’ve lost my inspiration.  Especially with that one bad review from my first book.  I know I shouldn’t let it get to me, I had myself all prepared for the bad comments, but when it came to actually reading what they had written, it hit me.  Though, thinking back on it, I find it convenient that they say all this nasty things with a fake name.  I mean, really???  How lame does someone need to be to hide behind their computer screen, use a fake name, and be mean to someone who’s new to the writing scene.  At least I had the balls to put myself out there, with everything I do.  What has this person ever done that they could be proud of.

I need to thank my many friends who PM’d me in Facebook to voice their support.  You guys are the best buddies ever.  You all are never very far if I’m feeling down and need a great pick-me-up.  Case in point to an awesome friend who had me literally jumping up and down in my kitchen, laughing out loud.  Literally. LOL  It’s a good thing I was alone at the time, cause I think my family would have thought I was nuts.  Paco.  And I just giggled again as I typed his name, Paco. 🙂  My crazy, sweet, awesome friend, don’t ever change.  🙂

He posted a picture of what the weather was like at his location.  And it was nasty, snowing really bad.  So after I read a couple of comments, I had to make one.  And wouldn’t you know it,, he actually done my suggestion and posted the picture on my timeline.  (Laughing as I type all this again).  The suggestion was to make a snowman, with sunglasses on, a Cuban cigar, and a beer.  Bless you Paco, that really made my day yesterday.

For the past week or so, I have been helping my daughter’s (who’s 10) fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.  The name of the fundraiser was Jump Rope for Heart.  I’m so proud of her for wanting to take this on.  And I want to thank those who were able to donate online.  I know not everyone seeing my posting on Facebook and Twitter could help.  But I am grateful to those who shared the link to help spread the word.  I’m proud to say that in total, she’s raised $160.  🙂  Most of it was from online donations, so to those of you who donated, bless you all. xoxo

I apologize for spamming up Facebook and Twitter timelines, lol.  But I think anyone who’s child shows any interest in something, to support them the best you can, and to give it your all.  And I hope that she knows how much I’ve been there to back her up on this, and hope that she does something like this again in the future.

Anyway, thank you all for popping by to read my thoughts.  I hope you had a nice giggle, or found some sort of inspiration to do something for a worthy cause, or to help someone less fortunate.

Until next time.
