    Always Someone

    There's almost always someone around me. Sure, they have their reasons to keep track of me, but I need some space. I have to have my alone time. There's almost always someone close to me when I'm at home. I would really like to have some time for myself. Just to be alone. Just to...

    Idle Thoughts About Feeling Free

    I want to know what it would be like to not have to share a bed with anyone for several weeks. I want to sprawl out and sleep in the middle of a big bed, and sleep under a heavy quilt to keep me warm. I want to be lulled to sleep with music playing. I want to leave the...

    Sometimes I Just Need Space

    My first husband was a very distant person.  I had more space than I needed.  He kept his feelings to himself, so it was difficult to guage if he was upset, angry or even try to work out any problems when he just would not open up. I spent a lot of years as a very...

    Second Chances

    Sometimes giving someone a second chance is giving them an extra bullet for the gun because they missed you the first time. BE careful BREAKUPS Aren't Always Meant To Make Up, Sometimes They Happen To Give You A Chance To WAKE UP

    I Rarely Get It

    Space that is. All morning long at work, I get very little space as I care for very young children. I love kids, but they don't give you much space. Then the rest of the day I am with my two small kids. My daughter especially is always on me, like a cat. I love that she...
