    A reasonable request.

    Hi. If you have a problem with something I've said, please let me know. Maybe a little private message or an email? I'm pretty easy to contact.

    Sorry you're having board troubles! I hope everything works out...

    FWIW, I've never had a problem with anything you've said...

    Did I miss something? I'm not unhappy with you and don't know why anyone else might be. I'm sorry you are feeling this way and hope whatever it is gets set straight quickly and easily. ((( )))

    I missed something as well. Hope it works itself out.

    I'm sorry you are having board troubles. The only thing your recent posts have done is make me laugh.

    you're pretty cool in my book lady

    Don't worry, I'm feeling kind of insecure today too....I think maybe sometimes I should just keep my mouth shut.

    I like reading your posts. I can't think of anything that you've said that I would have been offended by.

    Jeanne - I get major board insecurity. I don't write particularly well and I am not that creative. I also don't talk a lot, so I don't end up posting a lot, although I lurk a TON. I think sometimes my comments don't come out quite right. I am such an accountant. To top it off, I NEVER get PMs. You'll never see a thread that says, "RobinC, Time to Clean UP..."

    Wow. It's so easy to get centered on someone who may or may not dislike you, and it's easy to look past all those people who love you. Thanks for setting me straight, guys.

    Robin I love your posts when I do see them

    I think I'm just feeling a little post challenge-euphoria let down. Sometimes I think people get tired of me being a cheerleader

    Robin...I am like you in some ways.....don't talk a lot but good listener...can be shy at times.....and yes sometimes my wording does need some editing and have the tendancy(sp) to use a word in the wrong context or is it content. . Oh, hey, Robin....please clean your area!

    I sent you one a few weeks ago!

    JeAnne, I just don't like cheese. Ick. OK, I like bleu cheeses. That's about it.

    We love ya! Sometimes it's hard to be understood on a BB- things don't always come out the way you mean to say them. Occasionally they have to be clarified, but hopefully we can get over them with a kind, quick explanation if needed. (I think many of us have been in the same boat at one time.)

    Just keep doing what you do best- making this BB a special place!

    I think the whole board is just going through its natural funk. Everything has been a little edgier lately. I certainly don't mean "YOU"...just all they way around.

    A little late but here all the same. I saw reference mentioning things being heated on the boards but I haven't noticed anything.

    I always get a chuckle out of MK's posts.

    Never have a problem with you. You always crack me up.
    Life is all about a$$; you're either covering it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, behaving like one, or you live with one.

    I know this thread is all about MK

    But you guys have really made me smile today. I've been in a funk lately and I think this was the first time in a while that I've giggled. Thanks.

    BTW - I can understand not liking cheese. While I personally love the stuff, we all have our own tastes. Me, I hate yogurt. Can't stand the stuff. I can cook with it, but I will never pull out a spoon and dig in on a carton of the stuff.

    Like everyone else:

    As you know, I have no problem with PM's. And, like you, I would request a reciprocal courtesy before a post taking me to task.

    Mary Kate, your posts regularly make me chuckle, and laughing makes me happy. My most recent favorite Mary Kate-ism is "light chocolate ark frosting." Don't know why, but that really made me laugh. You're ok in my book, girlie.

    I know this is veering off the topic of this thread, but Jeanne, I doubt I'm alone when I say that you are VERY much appreciated! I would think that being a cheerleader would be very tiring, yet you continue to inspire and encourage. It's ok to take a break from time to time when you need it, but there are LOTS of us here who read everything you have to say and glean so much from it. I may not be a regular on TMIWTB thread at the moment (taking a break myself), but I lurk there and still learn so much from you. Just wanted you to know.
    We figured there was too much happiness here for just the two of us, so we figured the next logical step was to have us a critter.

    I *think* I know what you're referring to, Mary Kate. And honestly, I found the post humorous - as I do so many of your posts ('Eat Chocolate Sausage Meat?') - too bad it got deleted. (Or am I just completely wrong about all this?)

    (((((Mary Kate))))) and more hugs to anyone else who's been feeling insecure (and don't we all sometimes?).

    MK, I like you!

    And Robin, I love your icon. Cracking Toast!

    Speaking of insecurity, I see tons of places where I want to respond to something, and I don't because so many people have already said what I thought. (Maybe that's not insecurity...)(What's really sad is that I wondered if people were going to think I was silly for writing that.)

    OK, Mary Kate...now that statement I have a problem with!

    Really, I love cheese, all kinds, EXCEPT blue veined. For the life of me I can't imagine how you like blues (Ick, and more Ick!) and not anyothers. How'd that happen ???

    JeAnne,

    Nope, not tired of you being a cheerleader.

    You are an amazing lady. You have worked very hard to overcome your weight problems, and bared your sole to all of use to help us help ourselves. Keep it up!

    You are a large part of the reason I finally got off my lazy butt and started working out. Now, I feel better, look better, and have more energy to do things with my family.
