Survived... sorta

I've made it past another birthday, now in the final lap of this decade. My misspent thirty-something years. Next year I get to start my midlife crisis right?

Can honestly say at least some of this year was good, but equally true much of it really sucked. Health, work and relationships all were filled with serious downturns. Enormous pitfalls and looming avalanches abound. Disappointments galore, mostly in myself, and I'm not sure I've even handled the worst of it yet. Wish I could assume the coming year would be an improvement, like when you've already hit rock bottom, and say "How much worse could it get?" But I know better than to tempt the fates, there's still plenty and can and might go wrong.

Just handling the days as they come. Do my best to be a useful Dad, since I really don't want to mess that up, if possible. Everything else will get juggled somehow. So yeah, if I don't post for months at a time again, that's probably why. Feeling enough broken and whiny that I kinda get bored with my own thoughts, not likely to put them down here. Miss the good times, ready to move on now.

I'm still online most of the time, easy to find if you care to look, so will hopefully chat with some of you, just not likely here.



Happy birthday, dear Fred, many spankings to you! Love you much and wish only good things for you from here on out. I know you don't ask, but if you ever need a friend, you have many, including me. xox
Thanks, it was fun hanging out after D's birthday. Sorry it doesn't seem to happen often.
You are an amazing dad and fantastic husband. Love you a ton! Sorry I wasnt able to do much on you actual b-day but hopefully this weekend will make up for it a bit.
You ARE a great father. And you ARE a great friend. I'm one of the lucky ones that gets to talk with you everyday and see you in person.

It's been a hard year for both of us. But know that you can count on me, just like I know that I can count on you.

Scratch that. You are not just my friend. You are my brother.
I love you so much, my dear friend! Like Dark Meat said, you are more of a brother to me than a friend, really. I've known you over half my life and you've always been a steady person to turn to for advice, a hug or support.

If I want to chat with you, where do I find you, since you aren't on FB?
I'm still on AIM 24/7, but also on G+ and Twitter, so I'm not hard to find. This has links to most everything major - http://about.me/FredBrown
Ah, I'm never on G+ and I use my Yahoo for IM. I'll try to remember to open my Gmail so I can chat with you :)
I've got yahoo too, but its always connected at work by default, so only handy when I'm there, which account are you using since I don't seem to have that one on my list?
