Summer Cleaning  
I just did a very thorough friends list sorting. For quite some time, keeping up with my friends page has become lower and lower on my priority list, and now with most of my Internet access comprised of a dial-up connection, it's become even more insignificant on my list of things to do when I'm connected. I feel bad about skimming and skipping all of the time, so I had to reduce the number of entries I'm seeing on it.

For that reason and the fact that I want to limit my friends list to as few people as possible for closeness reasons, I've removed a lot of people. It's nothing personal against any of you--none of you have done anything to become untrustworthy or uninteresting, I just feel that we've grown apart or that we were never all that close on a personal level to begin with.

I hope none of those I've removed are offended, and feel free to stop by now and again to let me know how you're doing--I'm certainly not opposed to little, "Hi, how are you?"s, but I just don't have the time or resources to keep up with a lot of different people's lives anymore.

Stata buon, all of you. :]

It’s completely understandable and not at all surprising. We have drifted apart quite a bit, unfortunately.

Yeah, unfortunately is definitely a good word to use.

I'm thankful for my excellent memory, though. You can be sure I won't forget the impression you've left on me, and please do stop in to give me little "Hello, I'm doing well, how are you?"s every now and then--here or on IM. :) :)

I left an impression? ^^;;; Thanks, that is quite flattering :3

Melody: stampcomeseptember on July 2nd, 2006 01:15 pm (UTC)
Of course! :) You're quite an interesting person, intelligent, pleasant, and fun. And being so completely different from me in many ways, it was always enlightening to speak with you, too. :)

Heh ^_^;;;

Hey, I completely understand--I've been having trouble keeping up with my flist, too, and I've been thinking I need to do a little trimming of my own. Best wishes. :)

I'm glad no one who's said anything to me so far has been at all hurt. Best wishes to you, as well, and do feel free, like I said, to say hi again sometime. :)

at least your still hosting my site.
<3 ya for that!!! =]
Melody: mecomeseptember on July 2nd, 2006 01:06 pm (UTC)
Of course that's the case, sweetie! I'll do that as long as I have a domain and you want to have a site there. :) <3

It seems you've had a lot going on lately yourself, so I'm sure you can understand my need to streamline things in one way or another. Please don't have taken it personally. :]

I'm really glad that you kept me on your friends' list, but I totally understand what you mean.

How do you like your new house/town/job?
Melody: magiccomeseptember on July 2nd, 2006 01:09 pm (UTC)
Oh, it's been fantastic here. I can say that this is the first job where I've really felt like I'm meant to be there. And I don't think I can beat the commute at all. ;D The summer's just starting to pick up now that we're finally getting some nice weather, and I'm really looking forward to the village events for the Fourth. :)

I'm not surprised...
One of these days when I give up my delusion of keeping up, I'm going to do a clean out as well.

I'd still love to meet up one day now that I'm based in NY again so let me know if you're interested. *HUGS*

I've still got your blog friended over on travellingcari, let me know if you want me to take the link down.

Re: I'm not surprised...
Oh, I'd definitely like to meet up with you, still! Where in NY are you now? Back in West Nyack or elsewhere?

And definitely don't take me down from your site if you'd like to keep the link up. That's completely up to you. I don't mean this to be a "You're not my friend anymore!!" kind of thing at all, so if you want to link my site, I'm happy to be linked. :)

Thought of you today...
Was in Setauket. Last minute and not in a people mood with all that's been going on but we'd planned to walk around Port Jeff and/or Stony Brook before the skies opened. Thought of you and wondered if I'd wander into the bakery by accident because I couldn't remember where it was.

Next time when I know more than 1/2 hour in advance that I'm going I'll e-mail you. I think I'll be out there more this summer. Hopefully. Friends of the family had their three grandchildren over and kids can be a good distraction.

*HUGS* Hope all is going well.

Re: Thought of you today...
My bakery isn't hard to find--if you go down by the ferry, it's near the corner of 25A/Broadway between the bank and Village Hall. :] Big white building with a red sign out front. If you're in the area again, do just stop on in! I'm there almost every day, usually working the morning shift and done around 3pm. And if you don't see me at work, just give me a call on my cell--let me know if you don't still have it and I'll e-mail you--since I live just across the boat dock parking lot from the bakery. ;]

And right now I have very intermittent Internet access--this is the first time I've been online in two weeks! So calling me is a much better bet than e-mail.

I hope all is well with you, too. And I hope the non-people-seeing-mood wasn't due to anything lasting and/or serious. *BIG HUGS back* :)
