Back Where I Grew Up.I've moved back to my childhood home and I'm not happy at all. My mother drew the plans for this house and my footprints are in the basement. However, everything has changed. This used to be a thriving little town and now it's all but dead. The nearest Wal Mart for goodness sake is 30 miles away.
I owned 2 businesses before moving back and now I'm bored. I have a beautiful home, or rather it used to be. It needs a great deal of work and it's to much for me. I've thought of selling and moving but this is "home".
My marriage is lonely so I depend on my dogs for comfort. "Crazy I know" but I could do worse things. The grass is up to my knees and my husband is finished doing yard work. Won't do it. Won't dig a hole for me to plant a rose bush in. My Son is in the city where I lived and I have two beautiful grandchildren. Their other grandmother sees them everyday and I see them maybe every 3 or 4 wks. My Son is by a previous marriage and there isn't a great deal of "love" between Son and Husband.
I'm just very lonely. I'm outgoing and love to be around fun people and now I'm isolated. I'm hoping to find friends in here who understand. I know most of the people in here are young and I find myself trying to give "Motherly" advice. I enjoy all age groups so its okay with me.
The format keeps changing in here and I have to stay on my "toes" to keep up. Some friends come and go but I met a wonderful friend in Australia and we e-mail.
As to me staying here in a small town, who knows. We'll see.
