That reminds me...I need to go to Trader Joe's and get some mac and cheese balls.

I could live on those things.

I don't eat meat, and they have a lot of protein and that is how I justify it!

If we ever move away from TJ's I will have some serious mourning to do.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

SO GOOD. I want them right now. I try not to eat them too much, and usually just have soy mac and cheese with panko and it's kinda the same thing, but just biting into those things...sooooo good.
...Look forward to Faith? O_o
I know how exciting that must be for you.
Yep, she goes from Angel (season 4) over to season 7 of Buffy.
Just found out tonight from our neighbors we apparently live in a prime trick or treating neighborhood and they bus kids in to steal candy..I mean trick or treat.

I only have two bags. We ain't gonna last 15 minutes!

Maybe we should turn the light off and just eat the candy I bought ourselves?

It's hurts my soul to admit but ...

I actually doubt that I will ever love anyone the way I loved my ex. It's been 4 years and I've still never met anyone quite like him. He made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. And made me feel so special, loved, and valued. Plus we had so much fun together and I could be 100% myself around him.

My mom once told me that people wait their whole lives to find the love that we had.

So why did he have to fall in love with someone else ...


This is a sign in my town. What if I needed a prayer, say, Saturday at 3:42pm??

Thanks! .

My Mom said it was her favorite, but she's biased, lol.

The pink unicorn will do well with little girls, and the Polamalu will do well with football fans.

ETA. The cat/lion wasn't hard to make. It was just time consuming.

Those are so fun! I wish the folks at my job had some spirit... everyone I work with is soooooo lame and too cool for school too do stuff like this.

We have a pretty fun, creative group. There are lots of artists, writers, musicians, photographers, and other creative types.

Most are there since those fields usually don't always offer enough to make a living and rarely have benefits, so the side job is needed to get health insurance and to stay off of public and/or family assistance. We have good benefits for part time staff.

There are only a handful of folks like me, retired from the first job and working at the second.

I know it feels that way sometimes, but you can if you allow it to happen. It will take you by surprise, most likely.
You need to stop yourself from romanticizing what you had. It doesn't help for you to think that you had some kind of epic, once-in-a-lifetime love. Think about the things that were wrong. If you're not together and he's with someone else, it means you two weren't perfectly matched. It means there must have been some problem at least. If he can find love with someone else, so can you, because you ARE that special, beautiful woman who deserves to be loved and valued. You may not find another man you love that way, but don't fall into the trap of thinking that you only had one chance and you somehow lost it.

Next time we hang out, I'm ending it. The only day we both have together, and he's blowing me off to watch football alone all day ..... and in the same breath telling his friends how amazing I am. WTF??? YOU TELL ME I NEED TO GROW MY HAIR LONG (because he hates it short) AND NEVER TALKS TO ME!

It just gets to the point where you get tired. Tired to the BS, and tired of feeling something only to have them dissapoint. At some point it feels better to be realistic that true love doesn't happen for everyone. And that's ok too, I can still be happy ...

ETA: I've spend much too long dating guys I didn't really like only because I WANTED to like them I'm trying SO hard and meeting so many people. But it just never quite works out .... I miss feeling loved and adored so much. Like you have a partner who has your back no matter what. He stood up in front of all his friends who were teasing him about his pet name for me and said"I love my ____ more than anyone, you all are just jealous ..."

ETA:
It's actually only recently I've began to think this way ... it's been 4 years since we broke up. And at first I thought of course I'll find someone else. JERK! But it's been fours years and nothing ... again, been trying very hard and meeting a ton of people. But nothing close. Eventually, you have to get over the idea of deep love and begin to believe in settling ...

I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
I so wish I had the kind of social life that included having plans on sat nights. I love my kids but after they go to sleep I am beyond bored,and an occasional adult conversation sounds great
At 2:40am I woke up to a bug zapper in my bedroom. When I cracked an eye to check it out it was the heater shorting or something. I lept out of bed and turned it off, the one thing I like about those heaters is they are controlled individually. It was sparking blue every few seconds and in between I could see the metal was orangered-hot.

The SO had me turn the power off in the house until he got home. Hopefully it's just a loose wire and an easy fix.

I think sexual attraction is often mistaken for more. To me, deep love is something that is lasting and requited. If someone cheats on you so early in a relationship, and you can't overcome that obstacle together, then it probably can't be the deep love you thought it was, because it wasn't for them.

I think what is required for marriage (assuming this is where you want to head some day) includes some of what people look at as "settling." Obviously, there does have to be love and attraction and mutual affection, but you also have to look for elements of stability and paternal instinct and other things which may not lend themself to movie romance. I also think that that new-love romantic feeling will fade a bit over time and as you build a family, and that's OK - not demanding it constantly is not "settling."

I'm not necessarily saying you should settle for THIS guy based on what you said about him, and I'm not necessarily saying you are being unreasonable, but I do think you should ditch the "deep love/settling" dichotomy and maybe look for a combination of the two.

I have discovered that it's surprisingly enjoyable to pretend to conduct a song using a chopstick.

It is also a way to avoid doing the dishes.

My mothr and I just had a full out argument about my resume because "it's too crowed." She doesn't think I should include what I did in each job because interviewers will ask. I mean "everyone knows what an exchange teacher does."

She also wants me to combine my volunteer experience with my professional experience because chronologically it makes sense.



It is too early for this ****. I haven't even had my breakfast yet.
