Yesterday, my 21 year old daughter moved back home. I think we all have mixed feelings about it ... I love it when she's around, so I'm OK with it ... Marty (hubby) loves having her here also, but finds her lack of housekeeping frustrating (as do I, but not as much as him) ... even though she hasn't said it, I know she is disappointed. The condo she was sharing with 2 other girls sold, and she didn't have adequate time (or desire) to find an apartment she could afford on her own, or suitable roommates. This is temporary.

I had another vivid "ex-husband" dream ... the one where he taps my shoulder from behind and when I turn around, he kisses me so passionately, my knees feel like buckling ... WHY do I have these dreams? I guess having been married to him for 20 years, that might explain it ... but these dreams ... I wake up wanting him ... I'll be glad when enough years have passsed and the dreams stop.

Looks like a crisp day outside .... not a cloud in the sky ... no breeze ... but I know it got into the 30s last night. I have to work today. I will be so glad when the holidays are behind us. It's kinda hard to talk with folks about diet and exercise when their families are waiting at the turkey feast for them. Tis the season for New Years resolutions though, so ... THAT is on my side ... Next year, I'll be sure and take vacation the day before Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve day ... not a good day to motivate someone to eat right and get some exercise. Did I mention I'll be GLAD when the holidays are over???

Speaking of work, gotta hit the shower and get busy ...


  1. My 21 yo may be may be moving back home too. Her lack of housekeeping drives me NUTZ. Maybe she is more mature now that she has been on her own but I doubt it.

    As far as dreaming about exes? I used to once in awhile and it would frighten me because I truly did NOT want to get back with him. He and I are decent friends now and I haven't thought about him in "that" way in about 4 years.

    I'm glad the holidays are done (well mostly). The only thing left is a party at BFF's that all I have to do is show up, eat, drink and sleep. Oh and bring a 5 dollar bill for Texas Hold 'em.

  2. I didn't think I wanted him back ... he really hurt me ... hell, we hurt each other, truth be known. But I really did love him ... suppose I always will. We've been divorced for 3.5 years.

    Eat, drink and sleep? Sounds like the life of a dog! heh Enjoy ... I "get" to work tomorrow till 9pm ... that'll be fun! "Hello, this is Marcy, your nurse ... can you stop doing that keg stand for a minute and let's talk about your blood pressure?" ... Happy friggin New Year!!!
