    It's 9:00 PM and I've been at the office

    since 8:30 this morning. I'm feeling a little rough as I walk out to my car...out in the lot all by itself. As I walk feeling tired and defeated, I stumbled upon this cute little guy...Instantly boosting my mood.

    I certainly do and then some.

    And when I do take a break, I want to relax and have some fun...that's why I am here. I am desperately seeking a friend and partner to chat and cam with on skype. I need adult interaction so badly.

    I have a long list of deadlines to meet

    before the term closes in two weeks. It is like doing the last sprint to the finishing line. I cannot afford to slow down. I need this final burst of energy. With this much to do, where do I find time to feel bored?

    Yep my job has no benefits,

    sick days or vacation. It's 24/7 365 days a year. I have no pay in money anyway. I get it in the love of my family and the satisfaction of knowing I've meet their needs. My full time job is being a stay at home mom to now 6 kids and a wife to my husband.
