    Soooooo happy for the episode Laurie

    Granted. Listening at o’dark thirty Wog-a-bout may not have been the best timing. But kept me alert and aware of my surroundings. Lol.

    Have sure missed our connections.
    Your sure great fun!!

    I’ve been super busy but am FINALLY getting accustomed to my schedule and creating new routines. So yay for that.
    Things are relaxing.

    I hope you & all other BC’s are lovely Laurie

    Your a busy gal. But, I’m SO glad your living and seeking out all your aspirations!!!! Yaaaaaay mark being an enabler.

      Hi Dawny, hope your Halloween was fun! Glad you liked the episode. I hope the BCs are off having fun too, pretty quiet around here 😉 I’m stoked to hear you are getting used to your new schedule and things are working out. I feel SCREEEEEWED today! Here I am with insomnia where I wake up too early, and due to the time change is is EVEN DANG EARLIER! Yikes! And all of the classes I go to last until 10 or 11 at night. OMG, what a pickle. Oh well, we all have our challenges. I told you Mark is on his diet plan, and he’s lost 10 pounds. I am on the SAME by default, and I’ve lost 0 pounds. Whoops there it is! LOL. My bod just loves this weight, so I have to have a sense of humor about it. Doesn’t seem to even care if I feast or famine. Maybe I’ll work it into my stand-up routine. xoxoxoxoxoxo

        Wow. Awesome Sauce!! I forgot about the diet. Yaaaaaaay mark kudos to him!!!! As for us….. What’s meant to be? *sigh*.
        I hope his loss n your maintain is not effecting you mentally.
        I’d be lying if I said I’m in an okay place on that front…..

        Insomnia is the worst! Maybe you can catch a nap.
        Despite your busy active life I sensed from the episode maybe your missing the show makings. 🤔 Hmmmmmm. Lol

        Today I celebrate 21 years of marital bliss…. Er. Uh. Well. Yah. Lol. February is officially 22 yrs weeeeeee.

        Happy G’day laurie

          Hey gal, thanks for answering my answer! Yes, I miss the show, and I’ll probably keep to my once per month schedule with the bonuses – I can’t STAND to pay for something I don’t use, and the bill for the podcast storage (where the episodes are archived) happens monthly and there’s enough room in it for a new show or two Hah! But mostly I miss the interactions and that was on the slippery slope already when I finished up. So I know I was ready to move on, and the BCs were too. Doing the monthly update lets me still say hello to new BCs and keep my toe in the pond. Alen Standish told me he’d love to see me start a new show all about my acting and comedy adventures, and that might be fun, but I just don’t have time right now. I am so slammed with practice and classes as well as evil house work etc. Hahahaha. But I am enjoying life, and while I WISH I would be the one dropping pounds, I’m not surprised, and very glad Mark is succeeding. I also have zero diet mentality, because I’m not on a diet! I’m just supporting Mark. xoxoxoxox

            so glad your evading the diet mentality!! i thought about it after I hit send… marks’ 10#.. makes me remember, when I first started, the losses came easy too, coming from a place of ‘less healthful’ eating/choices..

            Great idea when you have more time to start a new show on the acting, voicing etc.. that will be great, can’t say I’d be a true follower, but I do love to follow you, your a GREAT gal with GREAT motivation, support, understanding and you HELPED ME SO MUCH crawl out of a place of diet hell prison that I’ll be FOREVER grateful for =-)
