Is it our hearts or our spirits that suffer the most!

Hearts are broken every day, unfortunately but "such is life".  With resourceful use of our time, hearts mend and pieces of it will always be reserved for those we lost and loved.  I fear for my…Continue

Is love essential to happiness, something two people can grow into (or out of)? Does "friends first" work, or when two people who are good friends get intimate, does it always spoil the friendship? …Continue

Yes, I can imagine so Rocket! I have now received the Probate Trustee papers so I am on the clock: 90 days to do what they told me to do. Yikes, I hate deadlines. The new rules started January 1, 2015 and my girlfriend who went to a seminar on this scared me about the consequences etc. Fines/jail double the tax. Wow!

Anyway, I will deal with it one day at a time. Hope you have a great summer!

Hi Everyone!

What a different feeling coming back to Thunder Bay with no home....lolol.   I have a lovely furnished apartment and will begin to settle in once I recover from my week in Nashville.

I know that I have to get into the storage unit and purge again since I now have a better grip on what I really need and what can go to the SallyAnn.

I eat when I'm stressed too, Linda..... fortunately my life this past winter was great with no stressful incidents....fingers crossed.

You gals who are caregivers for elder family members or helping your kids and g'kids,   please remember to take care of yourselves first  or you won't be any good to anyone!!

Warm Hugssssss.......

Hi Pat and everyone,

Not much action on here. I suspect everyone is dealing with their own stuff. Just had my aunt's memorial last Tuesday. My father in law has been diagnosed with early dementia and has had his licence suspended. He is having a hard time dealing with this change to his independence. I am seriously considering retiring at the end of August. There is only my daughter, my son and myself to help them. And my daughter is going back to work after her maternity leave. We need to be around for family. I have been eating my way through this latest grief period and I know I'll have to get back on the "food wagon" although I am not there yet. So I am hoping that you are all doing well. Hugs to all, Linda

I had to sign in again.  I guess this sit just doesn't like me.  I had planned to unsubscribe and then re-join but I can't even figure out how to that.  So I guess I'll just have to just keep checking and posting - even though I have to come on site to see any replies.

Hi Ladies,

I don't think there is any activity. I am still dealing with my stuff. At least my father in law is much better. My mother in law just celebrated her 88th.

I am so happy that it is finally warming up. Hugs everyone!

Hi Pat,

This site does seem to be having some issues!

Hope that everything is going well for you!

I haven't been checking or posting lately because I'm not getting notice about any posts.  When I do try to post, it never shows up.  I got an awful shock today when I logged on to find that there were about 8 pages of posts.  The reason I came on today was because I was going to unsubscribe and then sign-up again with different info to see if that worked.

I have had this problem for over a year now.  I have it set to send me notices but as soon as I log-off it turns that off but when I turn it back on it goes back to FOLLOW again.  I have gotten a new lap-top since I got the last message (last Sept) so it will be interesting to see if this message appears.

I do check FaceBook every day. If you want to keep in touch please feel free to friend me. Hugs, Linda

Oh my goodness Linda!!!

You sure have your hands full!!!!   Life can sure come up and hit us in the face when we're least expecting it, eh.   My sincere condolences my friend.

I seem to be in FaceBook a lot but just with my friends.  I've had a very busy winter, and will be heading back to Thunder Bay at the end of April.   I'm very seriously considering making a permanent move to British Columbia next winter.

Warm hugsss Linda.... Please take care of yourself!!
