I'm so sorry that I haven't responded to your messages. I just signed on a couple days ago for the first time in almost a year and discovered I actually had messages in my inbox! I sent you a friend invitation but haven't heard anything back yet. Don't give up on me yet. I'm still working on navigating this site. Skeezix
I went to the chat room and I did not see you in chat nor the list of active members so I guess you logged off.
How's things going? We are having high winds and snow squalls today, but there are periods of sunshine as well. The front should have moved further east in the next couple of days to give us a break in the winter weather. When that occurs, I'll drive into Denver to get some groceries and run errands.
We had 5 inches one day and two days later 7 inches, the next night 2 inches, and last night one inch. Meanwhile its snug as a bug in the home.
Hope all is well, and I look forward to your notes and our exchanges.
I'm in the Mountain Time Zone. Generally speaking, I watch the news/weather till about 2230 and then I get on the radio (I'm a ham radio operator) for another hour or so. Then I do a final check on my email, and log into WV. If someone is there, and they want to chat, I'll stick around for another hour or two.
I look forward to chatting with you and Thank You for your invite.
Thank you for your note. Sorry for your loss as well.
Nice to hear you are in the "neighborhood".
I think I am still in shell shock here. My hubby was perfectly healthy one minute and dead the next. I am mostly out of the denial phase but, just so damned sad that at times it is unbearable.
I have not yet come to anything resembling normal and feel most comfortable in isolation. I have friends and family willing to help but, I find when I am near them I am more distressed. So meanwhile, I am lurking here on this site and a couple of others. I do find some comfort in reading the posts. I guess because unless you've been there you can't possibly imagine the likes of this!
Welcome Barbee; I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I hope you will find the same comfort and understanding here at Widowed Village that I have. In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat. Post and join in chat when you feel comfortable. It is nice to be among people who "Get It"
