Emily your life is a greek tragedy right now, are you sure you are up to it? I can switch things around so you can do it later on if you would rather, I dont want to put anymore stress on you! I am SO sorry all these aweful things are happening all at the same time! You are amazing for handling all of that! I hope things settle down for you and let me know if you really feel up to it. ((HUGS))

Emily hi!

Thanks for keeping up to date on the things going on in our group and guess what, you may be up a week earlier for your guestblogger post, as of now I have not had a confirmation from next weeks person and if I dont by friday night then she is skipped, making Juliet next who is right before you! That would put you Wednesday as the 26th-I will let you know if that changes of course but I am giving you a heads up with your question to give you time. Make sure you check out other peoples posts if you are worried about things.

Your question is- Of everything you have written thus far what was the hardest for you personally and why?

You may want to go back to the discussion and reread the guidelines and now I am just taking your post in an email and pasting it in for everyone as Blogger is not cooperative-so PLEASE confirm with me that you will be able to do it as well as send your post when it is done to sammispals@yahoo.com

AND would you like me to add the pic on here for it or you could give me another with your post-its up to you.

HI Emily!  I am just outside of Nashville in the northwest corner.  Have been here a couple of years.  Moved from the coast of South Carolina.  Thanks for reaching out!  Good to know I have a kindred spirit nearby.  Bren

OK, Emily, not sure where the first message went I sent you.  I pushed the wrong button.  Still a novice to many of these sites.  Any who...happy to connect and become friends.  Pattie

It's a bit overwhelming at times trying to keep up, isn't it?

I'm in Charleston and temp for the week in high 50's to 60.  Glad I made the move south.


Happy Day! Pattie

I meet my writing mentor at the B&N in Bridegstreet all the time.  Actually, I am very familiar with every B&N in town because I'm kinda hooked on Starbuck's caramel macciato  :-) Let me know when you're in town.  You can email me directly at kimekofarrar@yahoo.com.  I don't know any of the Stanley family but I've heard of Stanley Construction.  Karen has blown past most people, myself included.  My brain could only take so much..  Talk to you soon!

Hi Emily, small world isn't it!  I'm an ME and I work for the government on the arsenal.  I also graduated from UAH.  I was just in Brentwood over the weekend.  Glad to meet you..

There I go again, writing about my dogs and politics.  Guess many of you know my interests by now, or rather, two things that stir strong passions in me besides my husband.
