    From Yesterday's thread:

    Got my apartment yesterday.

    ... I don't know all the state laws here in Texas but I do know how strict they are with business owners. Hubby would get half of ALL assets if I had a business when I filed for divorce. Not going there. Just like I won't try to buy a house, property or etc until I divorce.
    Congratulations! and, smart thinking re: getting property and etc. Now are you sure he can't get at your checking/savings?

    Just got a call from #2 son who has been hanging around LAX for 3 days trying to get on a flight to Hawaii . . . he is flying standby . .
    Amazing ...

    What have they done for 3 days then? Hope they at least had some quality time...

    Well, our kids have to figure out their "other parent" on their own. Hard to let it be but it's true. Sigh.

    ... my dr diagnosed me with CHF..
    Cholesterol up, CHF, family history, plus your GI hx - guess if you want to reverse the ticking clock you need to make some huge changes. I can understand mourning over a Whopper but - as we said before, "off the pot" -

    As to the BF, maybe he got hit w/ too much info too fast - and over the phone no less. I just hope he doesn't keep hopping back and forth with the "we're over" and "we're not" - that hurts more than just a plain old breakup... Sorry Bethin...

    ... Oh... my new admission... LOL !!! Her license plate said TWEETY. And her house was plumb FULL of Tweety figurines, nic-nacs, pictures, etc. ... Never guess who I thought of the entire time I was there...
    Hmmm... (drumming on my chin...)

    Quote from stevielynn
    ... on the way home from mother/son day, a mountain lion crossed the road in front of me and jumped over a fence . .. .it looked like a young lion. I just keep thinking about it.
    In a worried way or a general way? How close was that to you? I'd be nervous about Spidey ...

    Quote from Joe NightingMale
    ... And get out the electric radiator, as I don't think the steam radiators are on yet (hopefully the landlord won't wait too long). Good night.
    Umm, weren't you the one getting the A/C's out again the other day? Sounds like OUR weather!

    Good tomorrow morning. I don't have to stay up tonight!

    It's not yet ten o'clock Wednesday night here.

    DD just gave me a stack of magazines she is finished with. I'll look through them before taking them to the waiting room at work.

    good morning!

    thanks for starting the thread, zoe!

    good to see you, space!

    i *had* to do some shopping tonite.
    for me, even!

    we're helping w/some music sat., and we're supposed to wear black skirt w/solid color pastel top.
    well, i'm a red or black or bright color person.
    i don't have any pastel tops.
    or, i didn't until tonight. :d :d
    found three (on sale, too!) that will pass muster.
    very hard to locate [color="plum"]solid [color="lightblue"]pastels (with winter looks in the stores now), and especially to find a style that looks ok on me (read: doesn't make me look heavier than i am!!).
    i can wear the three i got when we play for the gathering place recording, at the studio, too.
    no red, no green, no prints allowed in the studio.

    so, i accomplished something tonight, eh?

    bethin, i agree: give bf time to think.
    and you, too.
    did your md venture an opinion of what precipitated this in a 27yo?
    and, how are you feeling?


    y'all have a good day (no more cougars)!

    He says he could be attributed to my mvp which can cause chf. But I had lost tons of weight to prevent that from happening, and I really watched what I ate. No fried foods, nothing packaged. Still felt yucky and so swollen. Waiting for the lasix to kick in so I can lose the water weight.

    It's soooo over. While we were yelling at each other I learned that he hadn't been entirely faithful. Great, now some a-hole threatens my self esteem yet again. Absolutely NO MORE MEN for me! Never ever ever again. I tally'd up my cheater and beaters

    Beaters: 1
    Cheaters: 5
    Nice guy: 1
    Emotional ****wits: 7

    My ratios aren't looking too good. I called yesterday regarding becoming a nun. I have a meeting in 2 weeks.

    Hey, but I'm ok! I'll get through this just like all the other times. The only thing is, with CHF I can't drink.

    Can't go out with my friends - they're all married or married with kids. I'm emotionally stunted.

    I have a meeting at work from 8a-4p. That will fill my time. Then I need to look for a new gym to work out at. I like the ymca, but the one closest to me doesn't have a pool. There's other gyms but they are more expensive and don't have yoga.

    Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!!

    *pokes head in*

    Hey there, zoe, spacenurse, and dianah!

    Sitting here studying for entrance exams. Somehow I forget how much information (mathematical, in particular) can be forgotten after only a few years out of routine studying.

    Makes me a bit nervous.

    Ah, well, 'tis life.

    Hey, diary! You stay awake! I need you to help keep me procrastinating like I shouldn't.

    bethin - You know you're in my thoughts, don't you? :icon_hug:
    And a nun? Really? You never use any smilies, so I can't tell if that was a joke or not.

    Oh bethin - what a loser!! I begin to think that all men are scumbags!! I really hope this is not the case - I do want to get married and have kids - but I think all the nice guys are taken....sighhh....where are the guys who like strong, independent women??
    Bethin - I am sooo sorry - I wish I had better things to tell you.

    Morning Zooz and Grace.
    Zooz - procrastinate away!!! I'll be here all night long!!

    zooz, no I wasn't joking. I dunno. Maybe there isn't that perfect someone out there for me. I'd rather be with a group of people who love me as I am. And I can still adopt. I would be able to go to third world countries like I've always wanted.

    I'm meeting with a local nun while she's home on leave. She's my dad's best friend from hs. I met her once and I walked away thinking "she's a nun??" She was not what you would think a nun was. She wore jeans, flip flops and played poker. We discussed how hot Bruce is when he sings "dancing in the dark". Super cool person.

    Diary, I had this conversation with my best friend's husband. One night we went out drinking and I asked him why I can't get anyone. He looks me over and says "you're cute, great personality, super nice, not too thin, but not fat. You look like Marilyn Monroe (her figure)." I mull that over and then I ask "is it because I'm independent, and I take no crap?" He hem hawed around that one before responding yes. He says women want to be rescued, well men feel the same way. They want a woman to rescue them and they know they won't get rescued by strong, independent women. We rely on no one. We're fine in new cities by ourselves.
