    Can't Do It All Anymore

    I'm feeling overwhelmed. I have so many things I need to do just to survive and I just don't have enough time and mostly enough energy to get it done. I have a non life threatening illness that saps my strength, my home is somewhat of a wreck (and I hate living this way). I need...

    Whn I Was Younger.......

    I use to wear sun dresses & pretty skirts. When I was younger I wore jeans & pretty tops.... I don't do that anymore. Now I wear bulky tops that hide my assets. Joggers that are loose around my legs. I NEVER wear dresses or skirts, too easy for a man to toss 'em. I don't...

    I Hate Insurance Companies

    When I was younger I had some nice cars.  A couple of mustangs and then my pride and joy.  My 1980 Toyota Supra.  It was a car way ahead of its time.  I could do 95mph in 3rd gear and still had 2 more to go.  I drove everywhere as fast as traffic would...

    It Was All Ruined For Me.

    I really want to do things that I used to... but I can't, at least for awhile (I hope). He ruined that for me. 90% of the things that I loved have some sort of a connection to him and I don't want to remember. The memories all just hurt too much... I can't listen to music I used...

    But My Brain Still Can!

    What's that about? A few weeks ago I was out with my boys; one of 'em jumped over our cooler while he was running and so I did to. Carried that fricking bruise for DAYS. I used to run, and hurdle, and.....and I couldn't even clear a cooler. What is up with that...

    A Limited Shelf Life

    I still remember the first dance costume I ever had when I was just four years old.  I would put it on and wear it around the house every chance I got.  Even from the age of four, I knew that I loved to dance, and for the next 24 years, it was the only thing I truly...

    I Suppose This Will Go Unnoticed, But It's Important To Me.....

    I saw a question on EP last night.  My heart was so sad over this that I couldn't get it off my mind today and wished to address one answer in particular.  The epeep asked if we had the choice, would we be logged in to EP or be out with friends.  Most of the answers were the...
