My life sucks right now.....


The wedding went well, no crying like I thought.  I do feel a loss though.  My oldest daughter no longer needs me. She has her husband now. I'm happy for her but sad for me.

little green pill

I can't live without them these little light green circles. When I was introduced to them because I couldn't sleep, I didn't know much about them.  Now, two years later I can't live without them.  Twice a day I popped one. I tried to cut down, to wean myself off but… Read full post »

Watched Eat Pray Love.  Wasn't as good as I thought it would be.  I did like the Eat part because it was in Italy.  (I am Italian and would love to go back for another visit.)  I'm now listening to the audio of the book.  It's a litle better but still… Read full post »

What is the pull?

I just watched the trailer for "Eat Pray Love".  Why do I feel this pull with movies like this?  I can't even describe the feeling.....can someone explain it to me? Does anyone know what the feeling is or experience it too?  Do I identify with the movie, do I wish I… Read full post »

 Wow. What a difference a month makes.  Maybe Dr Laura is right.  If you keep being your husband’s girlfriend he will be your boyfriend.  I did it and it worked.  I didn’t like doing it, I resented it and kept saying to myself I was tired if giving, giving, giving/… Read full post »
