I with you, Ann..................bills come first, husband wouldn't like if I went out and had meaningless sex, for that matter I wouldn't like it if I went out and had meaningless sex, indulge too often in a nondiet.

1) Ackkk...I just lost 71 lbs that took me almost all of 2012 to do and believe me, a few fun dinners with friends WILL make you fat!! It will me anyway!! No thank you!! I can indulge maybe twice a month and then it takes several days to undo the damage!!

2) DH and I would love to go on vacation right about now to someplace tropical, but paying the bills gets in the way!!

3) My credit cards are paid off except for what I charged during Christmas shopping. That will be paid off, too, in a few days!! Credit card bills are way too stressful for me!!

4) I have no idea what celebrities are doing and don't even know who the current ones are and I don't care!!

5) So thankful I found my sweet husband 4½ years ago that ended my dating that I hated doing, 3rd marriage for both of us!! I pray that we both live long healthy lives together; we already have the happy part going for us!!

6) Approaching 30?? LOL!!! I'll be reaching 70 in a couple of years and my writing takes place right here gabbing with you gals!! I highly recommend retirement!! :)

7) My husband and I do approve of amazing meaningless sex...with each other!! LOL!!!

8) My biggest fear is dying too young! That's one of the reasons why I lost the weight. I don't want to miss anything!! Now I'm taking better care of myself!!

9) I let go of the past when I had to buy a whole new wardrobe in smaller sizes!! WooHoo..Yay me!!

10) The rabbit. Now that does sound interesting and, yes, I do know what they're talking about!! I was widowed 11 years before I met my husband! Wink

I don't use credit cards and I have non-diets too often ...LOL As for the rest of the list- ummm...no thanks. I would never cheat on my boyfriend to have gross meaningless sex- aren't people afraid of catching something nasty? I could never afford to just book an exotic trip- that would be a dream!
I don't rely on my boyfriend to make me happy- he just does! He adds happiness to my life!

Well, clearly these ideas are for a wealthy, single woman.  Me? I'd love to take a dream vacation, but somehow paying the bills comes before booking a flight to an exotic locale.  And my husband might object if I went out and had meaningless sex with someone.  But I do take time to do what I want and I indulge myself with a nondiet often. ...Too often.  But I think two out of ten isn't bad. As for the others, I think I'm too old and too married to do them now. But I don't think I'll miss anything by not doing them.
