I wish I were writing a post about all my glorious exploits from Shadow Lane and Las Vegas. I wish I had some exploits to write about. But I spent the entire weekend in my hotel room and I didn't play once, not even with M. Not once. And it sucked. I ventured out for the vendors' fair on Friday, the dinner on Saturday, and a lunch on Sunday: about an hour per day. Other than that I was stuck in our room, sick. I am really, really tired of being sick. It's ruining important events and getting in the way of my life, damn it.

I know I'm whining. I know lots of people who wanted to go to Vegas and couldn't go at all. I know lots of people who struggle with chronic illnesses far worse than mine. I am grateful for the loving support of my friends and my wonderful husband. Truly. But it still sucks to feel broken all the time.

This so sucked for you and it was so unfair you were sick. Just because other people get sick too doesn't make your illness any easier.

I'm glad you were here to have girl talk with, but sorry you didn't get to place.

Pab and Bridget say they're glad they were glad for the time you did get to spend with all of us.

And there *will* be other parties. I promise. ::hugs::

Iris, I'm so sorry you couldn't participate fully at SL and even more sorry you've been ill. You're absolutely right that it doesn't help much to realize it could be worse, as that doesn't change how much it sucks. I hope you're starting to feel better.

Big hugs,

You were definitely missed this weekend and I'm just glad I got to see you for a little while on Friday night. I hope you're feeling better soon.
Hugs to you!

As one of those who couldn't go at all and wanted to, I think you got the worse deal with going and not being able to do anything, so I think you're totally justified in being upset.

I know this has been a hard spell for you, sweetie, and you know we're all praying for you to get through it and back to your normal vibrant self.

Lots of hugs.

Sorry you were ill-I had been hoping to get to know you a bit. Hope that you get stronger, quickly.

Thanks, everyone.

It's been kind of sucky, but I'm really grateful for all the love and support. Maybe I'll use some of my down time to do something radical, like post something here. :-)

Thank you for posting my work. My job is keeping me busy, so I'm not sure when the next installment is. But I did start it.

Sorry to hear about your illness. We have a person with chronic illness in our family and we really like the site:

Anyway, I hope you feel much better, and soon!
