    Too Much Time In Front of the Tv Or Computer

    I love my TV, and I spend a lot of time on the computer, whether I'm on EP or one of the poker sites. I really don't get out as much as I should. It's a big problem and it just doesn't seem to get any easier.

    Work and Home, Home and Work

    We take care of my father-in-law who is paralyzed from a stroke, and we have a toddler, so it's hard to get away. But my hubby and I plan to start going on dates again, even if we have to twist some arms to get a dad- & baby-sitter!
