    Well I just got home from the March on Austin. What a day! It was amazing. It was fascinating that there were all ages, genders, orientation and ethnicity. Everyone just bonded together in a common cause. There were so many people it took us an hour and a half to just get out of the park and begin to march. People were on roofs of buildings waving signs, people giving out free hugs and a baptist church, not even on the parade route was giving out water!I am so glad I went because it was such an empowering moment. I got to hear Wendy Davis speak.....very inspiring. I'm also sunburned and exhausted. It was 78 degrees with no shade or breeze but so worth it. Before Clay ran for office I had no interest in politics but now I'm marching in parades. Thanks Clay!

    Thanks to Google, I have fixed the "Like" problem! You may now like up to 25 posts per day. Sadly, as if we have 25 posts per day...c'mon Clay, give us something to talk about...

    Sleeping in the afternoon, in the Park Hyatt hotel, the door is open , no bugs, it's raining a gentle rain and no humidity in Colorado! That's wonderful but you know what makes it better? It's free! We are on our free trip to CO, that my daughter won. It feels so good and is really what I needed!

    Just popping in to say thank you for all the good thoughts. It helped a lot knowing people cared. He is no longer suffering or unable to live a normal life and that's what I am choosing to focus on. I am telling everyone that the saying "Life is short eat dessert first" should be heeded by all! So many things got put off for later, because life got in the way, and unfortunately for him there was no later!

    So, Friday I took the afternoon off to shop for my mom's birthday present, and cut the grass. I started some light cleaning and then Saturday got into the heavy stuff. Also went to the market and grocery store for all ingredients needed for what cindilu2 coined our "Thanks Birthday Going Away" party. My daughter arrived Saturday with a steam cleaner, and we proceeded to do the couches that the dogs have destroyed (what a chore!) and the carpets upstairs. Then I made a broccoli casserole, pumpkin pies and two batches of cupcakes. By the end of all of this, I wasn't even thinking straight, I was so tired, so no wonder the cupcakes didn't exactly turn out the way they should have. Sunday was more cleaning (yeah, it was dirty!), preparing veggies, icing cupcakes, and of course the turkey, which was stuffed and in in the oven by 6:10 a.m. There were 10 of us in all at two tables, and we ate on schedule at 1 p.m. Craziness! But we celebrated my mom's 78th, my ex's 50th, my daughter's impending trip to England, and of course, an early Canadian Thanksgiving! It was a great day, it all went off as planned, and I think everyone who was being honoured really enjoyed themselves. I went to bed for a nap yesterday about 4 p.m. and was in bed for the night by 9:30 p.m. I plan to lay low this week and eat left overs.

    Since it's so slow at the moment.....an update on me, and my surgery! On February 20th, I'll be going back to work. I've thoroughly enjoyed the time off, and I'm not really ready to go back. On the other hand, I'm bored at home, and getting a little stir crazy. The hip itself is good, but there's still some swelling around the incision -- mostly the muscles trying to get back into place. I haven't driven since before the surgery, so I think this week will be driving slowly around the neighborhood to get those skills back up to snuff. I'll keep everyone posted if anything changes....

    It's been a good day! Listened to Clay this morning, and just got back from a trip to the gym. Walked two tenths of a mile!

    Remember that guy who tweeted a picture from "The Meredith Vieira Show" saying that it was great to see Clay at the taping? We finally know a date -- Wednesday, May 11. YAY!

    You have to love a guy that uses monolithic and obfuscate in an interview and knows what they mean!

    Omg. You like me, you really like me........but wait what does being a mod really mean? Does this mean I get the key to the executive bathroom? An office with a window? Well I'd like to thank my mother and my father and all,who made it possible for me to be a mod! You'd think I was watching the oscars or something. ???

    Hi guys. Now I'm in Morgantown WV. Only three hours tomorrow to Northern Cambria PA and I'm there till Sunday when we are off to Niagara Falls. Once we have scattered the ashes I will breathe a sigh of relief. Last night I was taking the box containing my dhs urn up to the hotel room and a really friendly dog started sniffing it. His owner said you must have something good in there! I just smiled.

    Some thought he won, some thought he lost , some thought it was a tie, some noticed his hair, some misunderstood what was said, some ran stories with those misapprehensions, some tried to correct them. Just another day in Clayland!

    I think this is really funny..."Clay Aiken: He's Smart, He's Cute, He's Your ... Next American Congressman." http://fusion.net/Culture/video/clay-aiken-smart-cute-nextamerican-congressmen-761856?utm_campaign=&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter

    You know what I hate? It's when someone says we have a meeting in the office at 5am and I come in at 4:45, to open up and put the coffee on and they don't show up till 6:15!

    I watched it live last night, turned it off after the skit where the girl jumped his bones, and went to bed to sleep on it. I haven't read anything elsewhere, I just wanted to put my thoughts down here before I did. I was so thrilled when he came out singing and swinging! OMG how much do I love full body, belting-it-out Clay Aiken? I was jumping around my living room, I was so excited. This is the entertainer I love! OMG I've missed him! So happy. And so articulate on the couch. I was thrilled with Arsenio as well, for talking about their friendship and being honest about his own feelings. Great, great interview. Clay looked wonderful, those green eyes were piercing. And then the career question happened and that kind of took the wind out of my sails. You know, since gala, I've felt as though Clay was saying goodbye to something. I didn't know what, and I was still very hopeful for the future, for Broadway, for something that involved "fans". These past ten years have been so much fun. I've made so many wonderful friendships. Of course I want it to continue. But I think it's clear that that chapter has come to and end (or at least I'm pretty much convinced that it has, at this point). Perhaps Joseph was meant to be a last hurrah. I kind of wish I'd known. It's like eating that box of Smarties and not realizing you've already eaten the last one, you go looking for just.one.more. I do hope that Clay blogs again, lets us know more of his future plans. Not because I think he owes us anything, but I'd like to know more details, if he is able to give them. We all come to points in our lives where we feel the need to change paths, do what's right for us, and our families. Things change, nothing lasts forever. I'm very sad that entertainment seems to be ending for Clay. He's never shied away from the fact that his first love was working with those with disabilities, teaching, those sorts of things. So I'm not shocked or anything, that he would choose a more philanthropic path. I don't know what the future holds, I don't know that he'll never sing again, but it seems as though there won't be any more inexpensive 'concerts' or events that people who don't have disposable income will be able to attend. It's no secret that I've funded most of my Clay trips with a credit card. There's no way I can do that when the price tag is in the thousands. If I'm wrong, I'll be the first one in line. I woke up with a John Lennon song in my head this morning. It was written after the Beatles broke up, when the fans were freaking out and crying about it ending. It starts off with a long list of things that John no longer believes in, culminating in "I don't believe in Beatles!" and ends with this: The dream is over, what can I say? The dream is over, yesterday I was the dream weaver, but now I'm reborn I was the walrus, but now I'm John And so dear friends, you'll just have to carry on The dream is over Good luck, Clay, in whatever you choose to do. I'm a fan for life. I will follow your path with great interest, and I will also follow my own. Thank you for ten wonderful years, and all the friendships that they helped to form.

    Happy birthday gbmifan! Good news for my son's finger, we visited with the surgeon this morning and no surgery is necessary. Just some physical therapy and taping fingers together, and he should be able to start playing baseball again (in a limited capacity) in 3 weeks.

    I'm convinced that FCA is the last outpost for the sane and responsible Clay Aiken fans.
