My beloved, wonderful, smart, funny, helpful, generous, interesting, easy going, fabulous brother has been in town since Monday afternoon, first time he's ever stayed with me without his wife or our family.

We've done nothing but fun things, in a very relaxed way.

I thought you were totally over w/ Mr. Smith--why are you even bothering to see him?

I guess you have to either just be who you are and be your authentic self? If that means being alone but then spending time with other people then so be it..

I think as people we do fall into patterns and habits and as we age you know that saying right?? We get comfortable and we cant seem to conform to other people's way of living.. we also get set in our ways..

I feel that I have done so much work in my life with taking care of houses, husbands and kid and people that I really dont want to do that anymore.. I used to take care of a huge house, a mental husband, five kids and work.. and I did that for almost 11 years. So BTDT and dont want that anymore..

Marina; I do think you have set up a very nice life for yourself so if I were you I would probably enjoy the people while they are there and then be happy when they leave.. no matter if its your brother, parents, friends, men, etc.etc..

Oh; yeah; why are you still dealing with Mr.Smith?

Yes Marina, inquiring minds want to know how Mr. Smith got back in the picture?
