however, today was a good day with marianne, brooke and haylea. we went up to oakbank for the horse-racing carnival, and it was something i've wanted to do for a few years now. it was perfect autumn weather, for once this easter, and even though i didn't win a single bet, it was definitely a nice day out. hooray for friends, they're my saving grace, and sparkleoflife, i miss you.
i'm sorry if i'm not around online much anymore. i still read when i get the chance, and comment when i have the time, and i love you all so very, very much and appreciate all your support; but sometimes there's just not enough hours in the day for everything. so if i'm not around as much, it doesn't mean i don't care; it just means this has to wait until i have more time. i understand if this makes you want to delete me; but to the people i'm particularly close to, i hope you'll remember that i'm still here, still on email (firstname.lastname@example.org... or ask me for my work address if you want it), and still thinking of you.
and thus ends the public service announcement. carry on :P
