Thank you and RIP...

Thank you so much to all of you for your support. Yesterday was a hard day for me. I don't know why I took getting my period so bad. I knew there wasn't much of a chance of getting pregnant this month. I guess the fact that it was 3 days early?! I don't know.

I'm really nervous for next week, but it's really out of my hands and I want to deal with whatever we find out the best I can! You all mean so very much to me, I appreciate all your support and wonderful uplifting comments. I don't know what I would do without ICLW and all of you, so thank you!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!

Yesterday was such a sad, sad day. I was sadden to learn that Farrah Fawcett had finally lost her battle to cancer. I never really watched any of her shows, but I did know about her struggle and long time love with Ryan O'Neal. It was so sad. But I can only hope she is up in heaven and living without pain. RIP.

Then came the most shocking news...Michael Jackson is dead. I am still not able to wrap my mind around this concept. I know I wasn't a fan as of late. But Michael Jackson was a huge part of my growing up. This album was my very first record. I remember listening to it for hours, dancing my butt of in the basement. Whenever I would get to the end of Thriller, I would run to the top of the stairs cover my ears and hum. I hated that evil cackle at the end of it.

Then the videos. I could sit and watch him dance for hours. He was such a talented man. He was truly the King of Pop.

It's sad how his story turned out. His obsession with his looks, the molestation charges, his odd behavior, his strange protection over his children, and even more horribly his untimely death. I had just learned that he was making a comeback tour and was excited for him. Now, I am filled with nothing but sadness. What saddens me the worst is I know there will be TONS of jokes about the man we all lost. He was a very talented man, a little strange, but I believe he had the best of intentions. I will not take part in poking fun at this horrible loss, instead I will watch ALL the specials I know will be running in the next couple days and hope that he is in a better place, free of all this judgment and pain that I know he must've experienced. RIP Michael Jackson, you will be terribly missed!

I was totally shocked when I heard about MJ yesterday, too. It just doesn't seem right and it's so surreal. I can't believe that he's gone.

you are a good person.
One that actually practices what she preaches. That is so rare. I admire you.

I am also sad.

That was my first album too! I'm sad but I think I said goodbye a long time ago. He just kept getting more and more away from the guy from Thriller and Off the Wall and I couldn't stay with it..

So sorry AF made an extra early appearance. No time is a good time, but early? Come on. Best of luck next week with learning about the results on your hubby.

Thriller was my first album too. And he was my first celebrity crush. Oh how I loved him. It has been so sad to see the 180 his life took. I hope he is resting in peace.

I was another one shocked with MJ news. Sorry to hear AF found you early.

Michael Jackson's Bad album was the first album I ever bought. I still listen to it. It's a legendary piece of work along with thriller. When I heard of MJ's passing it didn't affect me. I was surprised I thought I would be really devastated. But then I realised the MJ that I loved, that I admired and was in awe of died along time ago. I never saw that man again the way I used to in his bad/thriller days. But nevertheless it is still sad and I hope he finds the peace he was never allowed in life.

It was a surreal day. And I can completely relate to how difficult it is to wait for results. Hang in there, we're all pulling for you!

Thanks for your "crooked pinkies" comment on my blog. :)

I too was saddened to hear of the deaths of Farrah and Michael Jackson. Like you, I have many memories singing to Michael J's songs and trying to mimic his dance moves.

Good luck to you and your DH.

It was a surreal day, one not easily forgotten.

I was shocked as well to her about both MJ's death as well as Farrah's. It make me so sick to hear people disrespect the dead. Whatever happens was then. Lets have some respect for both of them.

Thanks for your advice and thoughts over on my blog. I understand the feelings when AF arrives, even when you think you don't have that great of a chance this month, it's still tough. I will be praying for your meeting next week.
