All the things you've been through have made you stronger. I hope everything goes well for Leo.
I'm sitting here crying...Hubby has been working two jobs, and gets home from the second one at 1am...sigh, I've been alone, missing him all day. When he walks in, the dogs jump all over him...he has time to get something to drink, and I try to share my day with him in 10 minutes..and he has to be in bed. Don't get me wrong, I feel badly that he has to work so hard and so much, but I'm really lonely. I don't have anyone to talk to all day...and I miss him.

Thanks so much...I'm trying to find a job, and I think I got one today at "Halloween City", of course it will only be temp, but it's something...oh, and I am going to be in a play with our local theater, and our first meeting is in Oct., so I am trying to find other things to do. With the new pup in the house and still being trained, it is hard to get out for more than a few hours. I'll be okay...I really hope I get this job, then hubby can quit driving cab and have time to find a normal PT job at night. On I go....lolAwww. A big hug from me too!!
Your situation seems to be changing from week to week! 2 steps forward, one back.... That is a lot for anyone to handle. You will get thru this! It's just another challenge. Can you do any volunteer work during the day or are you also job hunting yourself? You do need some adult attention! LOL. I remember when I was on Maternity leave, some days my biggest excitement was some cute commercial on TV I had taped to show him. I was lonely for adult attention!
Connect with close friends, neighbors. Are there local groups that play cards? Euchre, Bridge? Dog walking groups or parks? Find a way to get out of the house with another adult so you don't go mad!! lol The USA is going to come out of this mess so much stronger than it was before! You just have to lay the foundation again and the positive in all this will be that you have all reconnected with family and friends, what really matters. And jobs are being brought home again from China and India, call centers that should never have left are coming home. Look in that area for work, companies that have call centers. Just ideas. Up here in Ontario, Canada it is not over yet either! In Aug 2010, we had 13% HST slapped onto everything we do. But it has a domino effect for 2011 too. Hockey, dance lessons, horse riding, everything fun!! and then also the electricity bill, water bill. We really struggled with that all last year... We are now facing the closing of Horse Race tracks and that will effect 60,000 jobs, and 13,000 horses. That is coming March 1st 2013. My daughter works at a track as a waitress to make ends meet as her second job, and I work with horses. 2 in our family will be effected.
TFK's new CHAT room is almost ready to go live... you will be able to come in and chat fish and anything you want. We rarely stay on topic by the way, and you can private chat with someone on the side if you wish. We're hoping it will be live within a week. Keep checking on it... I try to be on there every couple of days. My daughter is 26, you can always bounce stuff off me, or vent for that matter!! Chat soon!!
I am so looking forward to it too! It will be a way to get out of the house, meet people and have fun! I'm so glad I got the nerve to try out for it.The community play will be fun. I always had fun doing dinner theaters at my church but now that we stopped going they may not let me participate. They let people from out of state participate so why not me?
LOL...I still need to name him! And I ended up using my old stereo console..it holds three tanks! Pics are up in Betta pictures...though still no new guy pic..I tried taking some but he's still in the bowl and none of them came out!Your 8th betta! lol You know we want pics. I hope you can find a table at a yard sale or maybe you could find one at a thrift store.
Thank you Teresa...why is it when we feel like this that kind words make us start crying again..maybe it's just cause we need to know someone cares...bless you hon.Aww, Kim, I'm so sorry. I wish I could reach through the computer and give you a hug. I'm sure Cody was ok with his nails being clipped. Losing one pet is bad enough but two is really hard. You don't need to feel guilty. You gave those fish a wonderful, loving home and I'm sure they knew it. I
t must be hard having your husband gone all the time and in this economy making ends meet is difficult. You've got us here on the forum and we're always here to listen to you. I'll keep you in my prayers, my friend.
