Hello there Anne. Yes I remember you. I'm still running with that shoe!
You realize that was a decade ago? I got on BAN in 99.
This site has stalled out mainly due to lack of advertising. It takes a lot of time and work to keep it up front online, and we all seem to be off and running in whatever special shoes we wear these days.
I decided to go back to school again a couple years ago. Just finishing up the program now and on to clinicals. My youngest is graduating high school this year. Life has changed and is kind of perpetually 'odd'. No more marriage. No more house. No more raising kids. Lots of hot flashes. HA! Going in such a new direction. I'm so far out of my comfort zone that I've become zone-less. Not sure where I'll be next year with no particular ties anywhere. I'll follow the job. Hope to live lighter and travel more when I can.
Still talk to Bartholomew. Still in touch with a handful of the BAN people.
To answer your question, these days I'm getting support from the Daughters of the American Revolution. Don't knock'm 'till you've tried'm. They're a terrific group of old glaggies. And some of'm have been around the old block a few times.
I am so delighted to see you are there! Once in a while (maybe once a year) I drop in. The login isn't intuitive so I give up when I can't sign in...this time I kept at it. I have a few logins so it's frustrating.
Yeah, I'm up for some trouble I'm on the East Coast now but my oldest 2 live in Portland and Coquille, OR...near Marie. BoyHowdie??? I thought only us SE Alaskans used that one...Don't ask me about that Palin person...
Marie, No S^*t you are the recipiant of the other wolf stiletto??? That IS COSMIC!!! I look at mine all the time and think of you all.
Rose, my youngest is 18 this year, too. I went back to school & got my accounting degree. Still with my husband but I'm neurotic. I should have left...maybe. Life is wierd.
Bart, Bart, Bart...your stuff was brilliant.
I haven't been across the pond since way back then. Afraid of bad memories. I need to go with good friends.
It is amazing how much time has passed and how much time has not. Relative stupidity? ))
No hit & run here...I'd love to get together.
How do I go ahout giving you my email address?
Love you guys....Hug yourselves for me.

Going back to school was the best thing for my self esteen I could have done. What are you doing your clinicals in?
I don't doubt that BAN saved my life...emotionally, if not literally. I LIVED in that web site for a long time. Then finally I just had to distance myself from all of that pain, but I missed you all.
I'm in Delaware now; when I first found BAN I was in CA. Are you still in Minn? MizM, are you still in OR? I was in PDX in March. Let me know how how get in touch with you and I'll look you up the next time I'm through.
I'm showing my email address so you guys can feel free to get in touch.
