    There Is No Place Like Home.........

    I love being at home. It is my refuge. It is where I am most comfortable. It is where my family is. I would much rather be at home than anywhere else.

    I hate being a home body.

      My home is my "safe place". I am 'me' here. A different me then most people know. Here, I am free. I don't live in constant fear, anxiety, or stress. I did when ex was here but he's gone now. It is better. I am lonely & figure unless 'mr.right' is on this...
