How feel you?


"How feel you?"

"Cold, sir."


I'm very, very sad about my friend Rose. Her decisions concerning the cancer that is consuming her have brought her to a place I've never seen - it makes my heart hurt. *heavy sigh*

I'm tired of political posturing by both those in high office and those that surround me. I have a very low tolerance for rude behavior and injustice and honestly, my frustration level is very high.

I'm well pleased with how the trooping went this past weekend, and was thrilled with being able to spend time with people I enjoy in a different venue than the norm. I cannot describe how I feel when I dress as a Jedi - just love it.

Parenting and homeschooling three teens is difficult - that's all I'm gonna say about that. Actually, marriage is harder.

I'm forty-five, feeling rather dumpy and always cold. Still trying, without much success, to figure out how to age gracefully.

Truthfully, I'm tired - but I know it's all my own doing. I don't have to take on so much and I blame no one but myself.

But, even though I'm not feeling on top of the world, I know I have every opportunity to change my outlook, correct those things that seem out of balance, re-prioritize my commitments and make things better. I'm ever thankful for all that I have been given and will never take for granted all those that love and care for me. For in the end I know that I have been blessed beyond measure, more than I deserve.

"How feel you?"

"Ready, Master."

This blog is most interesting to me because it touches on so many different places and all are short and to the point (easier for me to understand haha). I think you're one of the best people I know so whatever it is you are doing keep doing it Master.

PS...age gracefully? You look better than a lot of the 35 year olds I know!

Some people think aloud.
You feel aloud.
That's a distinction that some might not make, but I think there is a big difference between the two. My friend, I appreciate that you've chosen the latter.

I love the way you set your thoughts between bookends, so to speak, in this entry. Nice progression, dear one.

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…

Confession

I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.



So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
