A Real J-Land Get Together!

Well, it is nice to have something really enjoyable happen on a random Tuesday in November. This morning I had my first J-Land get together, with Sara, and  her two kids AJ and Cady. You can find her at http://journals.aol.com/ceschorr/LifewithoutLaundry. I had a great time. We sat together, drank tea, and watched/played with the kids as we talked. I am quite shy in real life, but did not feel constrained at all.  

When I started my journal, it never occurred to me that I would get to know real people through reading and writing, let alone meet people in real life! Sara is a completely unexpected blessing, with whom I felt immediately at home. I played with transformers with AJ, and watched Cady move busily messing up one spot after another, and I realized how long it's been since I watched kids play. They are good kids, polite and demanding in equal parts(a very good combination, in my eyes).  

 Sara is a calm mother, and an interesting woman, quick and bright and struggling with 2 kids and MS, and running a home, and cooking and all those other things Rene and I do as little a possible. I am really looking forward to getting to know her better.  

 I am trying to keep as busy and active as possible, without overdoing- a tightrope walk with the chasm of wiped-out exhaustion waiting for the smallest slip. Today is too busy, but tomorrow is slower, and Thursday a friend is coming up to help Peggy do some plumbing. I am going to sit in a chair and watch!  

 Blessings, Margo

That's what I love about J-land, somewhere along the line we become family.  It really is a blessing.  I'm glad you had fun with Sara.  Sounds like you had a good visit.

Oh, it is so good you enjoyed yourself.  You are right, do not overdo it.  I always feel like I want to have coffee with you and chat.  

I also like Sara's journal.

Take care~

Wait a Minute!  Ae you saying that all these other Journals are written by "REAL" people?
 Well, that shoots my 'SPAWN OF SATAN' theory all to hell!
