Not surprised and Busy Day!

I thought this was hilarious. I know I have an odd name and it is very rare. I've never been able to find anything with my name already on it. You know like cups, pencils, key chains or stuff like that. Occasionally I can find my nickname, but not my real first name. I came across a link to "How many of me" are there and out of curiosity I clicked the link and put my name in. Apparently there is only 1 person in the USA that has my full name (first and last) and I'll bet that single person is myself. LOL There are supposedly 1545 or so who have my first name, and 47,728 who have my last name. I found it very funny that there is no one else in the USA with my full name. I wasn't surprised either as I am quite used to having an unusual name LOL
LogoThere are
or fewer people with my name in the U.S.A.
How many have your name?

I'm still giggling over this. LOL

Well today has been a busy day. Right now my pain is at a 9 and I will be taking a nap after I finish this entry. Lets see I did lots of laundry, washed , dried, folded and put away. This included 3 blankets (2 queen size and 1 twin size), 1 lap blanket, and 6 sheets (5 queen size, 1 twin and 1 crib size). I emptied all the small trash baskets and replaced their bags (wal-mart bags come in handy for these LOL) and Bridgette insisted on helping me carry the larger bag I dumped them all into around to each trash can then out to the trash can outside. I took in all of Bridgette's new pants, shorts, skirts etc as we had to buy size 4T for her height, yet she is so skinny she fits in a 3T. So I took all the bottoms in a little bit. I went over all my son's math work and found that he hadn't done the things he told me he had done, so today has been a math marathon for him to make him do everything he skipped. I did some picking up in the kitchen and my bedroom.

A few days ago I went back on the cross stitch forum that I loved so much. When my depression got really bad after my adopted father's funeral last summer, I withdrew from everything. No boards, email lists, or blog entries. Now that I have been doing so well in keeping up with my email lists, facebook and blogs I decided it was time to add that posting board back in. I really like the people on the board, they are so friendly, supportive and just wonderful. I was a bit nervous as to how they would react to my having been gone for so long, but no one seemed angry. Instead they were all very warm and happy to see me back again! They were very understanding of my depression and how it affected me. I am really glad!

Ok time to go lay down, sitting here hurts too much.

  1. Hey, it's DraconicWench from the forum. We would never be upset with you for a hiatus.

    I also live with chronic pain. I have what is called intractable migraine. I've had head pain everyday since July 2005. If you ever need someone to talk to that understands, send me a message.


Thank you for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog. For people who are chronically ill and/or in constant pain, it can be difficult to socialize as frequently as we would like to do so. Talking with others online is a way for us to socialize, chat with others, make new friends, reach out to others in similar circumstances and many more positive effects.

Knowing that someone has read my posts and commented on it, helps in many ways. The biggest two being that it helps ease the feeling of being "alone" and that no one could possibly understand. Secondly, it reminds us that others truly do care and that just feels wonderful!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog, it really does mean a great deal to me and is helpful too!
