hope you all are doing well...I am back on the board, back to trying to figure what the heck I am suppose to do with my time....I do not want to make a sappy vent but I am just having a hard time. I am far away from my mom and sister, the kids are off doing their own things and have their own friends and my dh is never "here"...I swear that he is having midlife crisis himself and getting more stupid as time goes by...I am trying to find other things to do for myself but not much to do in this small town...can't really do much at my kids school as they are very particular with what you can/cannot do...WHATEVER...I do not go to church ...and my winters get very cold and windy and did I say COLD?...lol anyways, take care and hope y'all have a good day...

Welcome back Susan! Lots of good ideas here, can't think of anymore. Would be nice if you could find a friend or two. Hope things get better for you!
