Just Sittin' Here Alone at Home - Missing You and Thinkin' of You Tonight

Good evening, Everybody

This is rather impromptu but as sometimes happens, emotions got the best of me and I decided to reach out to you this evening for a "touch."

I'm not one for bearing my weaknesses too much but I was feeling particularly lonely this evening - cold weather has settled into Texas, the house is dark and the pots are cold, as Carlos Santana used to sing. The wife is at work and no Sundance, of course, he's in Doggie Heaven. It's just me and my thoughts again - as strong as I am or appear to be, it can get lonely for me sometimes, so I thought I would dial into the Semi;Colon link and just say that I love you all.

So, I began working on my Christmas cards for you guys from the list that was generated earlier - inside each card will be something special that I am working on right now for each one of you - it is very dear to my heart and is my gift to you this year.

I'll give it away if I go much further, but it's the gift that will keep on giving for years to come - anyway, this gift got me teary eyed (what's new, right?) and it made me think all about you and so I've been working this evening on this project so that I feel more closely connected to you. It makes me feel less lonely.

The gift in and of itself is emotional and once you get it, you will understand completely.

Anyway, still here with you guys - day by day, and mile by mile!

I'd be happy to work on for you if you want to PM me your address - I've got about 20 in the queue right now and it takes some time to put it all together and get it out while there's time - I missed alot of time from the surgery - knocked the wind out of me, literally.

HO HO HO!!!
-Santa Craig

    Sorry your feeling lonely
    Sorry your feeling lonely Craig, I know sometimes I feel lonely when there is a house full of people. It is the nature of having the beast within I think. Please know you can reach out to me anytime and I will be glad to talk with you. You are a great friend and I wish you all the happiness in the world. God Bless, Patti

    How funny you just wrote - I'm working on your package this very second :)

    When the party starts, I'll be ready with you and Phil - we'll bring Brooks along too!

    Thanks, Man! Just feeling a little disconnected and this gift tugs on the heart strings - you will see.

    ooohhhh!!!
    Cheer up!! Go to a website that will make you laugh for awhile. I was browsing you tube for some Christmas songs to download and came across this song

    "girl's don't fart" on youtube

    my grand daughter who is one, got so excited!

    I couldn't copy and paste the website. I got this new MAC computer and the old control c and control don't work, the right click of the mouse doesn't work either.........

    Thanks for the Christmas Card! I need to get started on mine, but I need to download the list again, my other computer went kapute with the Christmas Card List.

    Hi Craig,
    I am sorry you are

    Hi Craig,

    I am sorry you are having a rough night. We all feel the way you are feeling now; luckily we don't all feel that way @ the same time! Tomorrow will be a better day. A lot of people missed you while you were away! You are a great advisor/friend to many on this forum. How cold is it getting in your part of Texas? I am from Canada & always think of Texas as warm!

    Take good care!

    Hi Craig,

    It must be the winter blues - you Texans are not use to the cold. I heard it snowed in El Paso today. Cheer up - people love you!

    Sorry you're lonely
    Hey, Craig.

    I'm sorry you're feeling lonely tonight. I find that when I'm alone, that's when my thoughts can run away with me.

    I'm glad you reached out here, because you are very special to us, and we always want to be there for you.

    And you have me intrigued. I can't wait to get the card!

    *hugs*

    You can't still be lonely after all these responses I hope!
    Hey Craig,

    Good to see you back here again! I was just thinking about you today while hanging out at Stanford Hospital. It wasn't the hospital that did it, just thinking about the board in general and you in particular.

    You've piqued my curiosity about the Christmas cards!

    I'll keep this short - just wanted to say "good to see you again" and hang in there. We're all pulling for you!

    Hi Santa Craig
    I think even Santa can get lonley on these cold Texas nights. I was just thinking today when i tried to go outside that I am glad we don't live up north! I am not liking the cold.

    Monday's are tough days because everyone here goes back to work, that leaves me with the cats, and they just lay around. Today I turned on all the lights got it toasty warm and started looking for my colored pencils! (we had to put things away because we had company for Thanksgiving) Tomorrow after I go to the Dr's office for lab work I am going to get a pack of fabric markers, and I am going to color and do fabric experiments! I can't play in the dyes because of the cold water thing, but I can color with markers. We will see what happens!

    Take care Craig, I will draw a Big Smile on my fabric for you!

    I have really enjoyed reading your posts in the two days since I joined this group. I am sorry that you are feeling lonely. Seems to me that night is worse for that. Something about the dark, I guess. Just know that the sun will shine tomorrow and your worries will seem lighter. How wonderful it is that the very people that you strive so hard to support are right here to give back to you when you need it. That is what this is all about. I don't know how to instant message you, but I would love to be included in your Christmas project. You sparked my interest and it sounds like you have put a lot of thought into it. I will learn how this all works in time.
    Warmly,

    Hi Craig,
    Yeah, the dark

    Hi Craig,

    Yeah, the dark house and cold pots will do it everytime. It is starting to get cold here on the East Coast as well. I'm sorry you were feeling loney and pray it was just for a moment. I'd love to be included as well.

    Hey Good Buddie
    It's got to be hard being there alone while your wife is at work and you sit with your thoughts. I get teary eyed some days too, especially when I read some of the posts and have quiet time to think about everything that has gone on and going on. Keep your chin up kiddo, can't wait to receive your card with that special touch you always add. I've been working on mine too. Wow there are a lot of names on there :) Have a great day.

    Hi Craig.
    Hi Craig. Watch some funny movies - Christmas Vacation, Charlie Brown Christmas, The Christmas Story. Jay Leno is always great each evening. Sing some songs - "A Holly Jolly Christmas", etc. Staying busy works best for me and trying to help others online. You do a great job at that!

    You know you're never exactly alone when you can come on here, it's ok to be alone, sometimes you need to be in your thoughts just to learn how to kick the bad thoughts away, and learn how to revert your mind back here and to the good thoughts. I like to be alone sometimes, but not all the time myself, my family doesn't like leaving me alone, but then I feel guilty and make sure they aren't making me the reason they have nothing going on, when I want them too ;)

    Now I hope you didn't spend alot of money on getting me a thing, I will crown you lol...

    It's definitely wonderful having you back here, I missed you so much, we all did, I always enjoy your posts, you make everyone feel so good, and I love it, we have alot of smart great men on this board! Phil, Clift, Brooks, Adrian, John, and so on and so on, it's so good to see the family growing with all these new people, you are all a great welcome here, and good to see everyone getting to know each other.

    I hope today is a better day for you~ today is my cleaning day, and to make turkey soup out of my leftovers!

    Hugsss!

    I'm here for ya!!
    Believe me I know how it is. I'm alone all day too and sometimes the thoughts in our head just get to be too much for even the strongest of person. Just remember we're are not alone, as you are not alone. We're all here fighting the fight TOGETHER. Together we are stronger alone we aren’t so much... LOL. Remember you are NEVER alone in this fight even at times it's may seem that you are. We got your back!!!
