Hi all,

As you all know we have lost Orchid to paradise island and the last get together SFBayAreaMBer X - A's vs Giants was cancelled due to lack of interest. We met as a farewell dinner for Orchid at PFChang.

Since most of SFBayAreaMBers has moved on ... *LULU*, J.R., T1, and SuperMom. The rests fell out of the bandwagons. In the past we have activities to fillin out time and keep in touch. This time, I would like to organize a get together aim for the new MBers that are hurt and needed help.

Date : 11/13/2004
Time : 4:00pm - whatever
Place: Metreon

Let me know if you are interested to come & send email to inside_hacker@yahoo.com for the exact meeting place & give a chance for all of us to read your posts.

ok ... honestly, how many times have you been to the beach since you have been there ? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="images/icons/tongue.gif" /> .

At the last week of the year, I have a vacation and I might show up there <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" /> . Office is closed, no 2 D ... , I am a single man <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" /> .

You could try to call 'em, but they are all busy w/ their new found lovers <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" /> .

Hmm ... where is home for mr.Orchid ?. He has not even sleep on the bed yet. I guess he better maximized his chance while he could earn some $ here.

Just thought I'd pop in with a quick howdy. Life in South Carolina is mostly good, sometimes challenging. I am working very long hours, H is feeling very frustrated by not having a job, and now caring for his father who has moved in with us. Kids are okay. House is incredible.

We're fighting tonight, which always sends me back to MarriageBuilders to remember what to do right!! Hope all is well with you guys - and for any new MB'ers in the Bay Area: I encourage you to meet up for some sharing time!

KS41,

thanks for poping up here ... funny, the locals don't even reply, yet. I guess both of you really miss it ... lol!, thanx for the support.

Yeap, M is work but it hould be getting easier not harder. If it is not getting easier it means that both of you need adjustments. Moving is very stressful, w/o job is also frustrated plus now he has to care for family memeber ... he has a lot. You are also in the similiar stress not to mention stress from kids. Keep fine tuning on 4 gifts of love, ENs, LB$, Time & Honesty.

Hang in there and Vent in here <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" /> -rh-

Hmm...something told me to stop by here.

With the exception of Orchid and KS41 who were able to recover their marriages - I think our SFBayAreaMBer gang turned out to be a divorce support group.

Yep - I've moved on. My divorce is final in less than two weeks. Too bad Orchid and KS41 won't be here for the party. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" /> But I'm insanely jealous of both of your new homes. I really wish I was learning to surf in Hawaii, or enjoying the Atlantic coast in S. Carolina...better than this crazy city where the median price for a home has skyrocketed to $647,000!!!

I don't know if you are planning to come or not. If no one else is coming I would canceled it since I don't want to be a third wheel <img border="0" title="" alt="[Roll Eyes]" src="images/icons/rolleyes.gif" /> . I will be driving from SJ around 3pm, Townsend has a gig that day, boundaries in dating.

I know Kamara promise to come ... I dunno about oaktown.

You have been avoiding us 4 2 long <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" /> . I would organize it if you could make it.

Well, at the most, I'd be there from the 13th-17th, though I *might* arrive the afternoon of the 12th.

I usually don't go for the whole week. Will need 2 see the schedule before have an answer for you.

Hello Redhat, Orchid, et al. --

I'm going through the unpleasantness of the divorce process, and have simply been trying to keep sane. There's not much to say to post -- and I feel all out of advice. What I'm watching is the spiritual dissolution of someone I loved, denied and enabled by everyone -- the shock is a deep one. Not mentioning what it's like to be tossed out on my a** at my advanced age! Still trying to organize the rest of my life. And pray. Pray hard.

I'm doing my best to cut loose and move on, even though the nastiness of this process keeps pulling me back to the scene of the crime. So I haven't come to this Wailing Wall lately (not a disparagement at all! Wailing Walls are very useful!) -- but I do think of you all.

Sure. It would be nice to get together. As you know, it's some distance for me. But in December, I expect I'll need to do some Christmas shopping. Can't do it all online!

2long: ahhh, AGU.org convention. Let me know. I would try to fit in our schedule to yours <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" /> . 12/12 nite would be fine too.

A.M.Martin: yeah, you has been MIA for 2long 2.

SleeplessInSF: It is very informal;we are trying to get to know each other and hope we could share resources & helps. We usually eat dinner there and stay until we are kicked out <img border="0" title="" alt="[Embarrassed]" src="images/icons/blush.gif" /> .
