You know, BlMoon, I feel the same way as your friend. I worry about hurting people's feelings, not being approved by others, having my choices critiqued, etc.... I have let those things run my life for too long. I had to acknowledgement that last night. Not letting people know that I am back put me in a trick bag. I was called and asked if I could allow a young woman with a couple children stay in my apartment because she is escaping an abusive husband. I had to say no for obvious reasons, but I started feeling guilty about it and then had to think, " what the crap am I feeling guilty about??? There's a lot of people who could help her. If I can, I will. But you see my point. There's a lot of things that people up here want me to be involved in, it would take most of July m free time. I was busy doing a lot for others, and I didn't mind, but I didn't have time to do stuff for me. That's why I am incognito for now. I want to concentrate on getting my life wrapped up here. I'm known as "the Baby Whisperer" up here, most things that folks want me to do deal with talking care of kids. I love kids, but I don't want to do anything now. Just move. It's just ridiculous! I feel like bolting, but I have to get my car repaired First. Ugh!!!
I ready to be reborn, start over, reboot.
I hope you are having a really great day. Still have personal and familial issues, but personal is taking time. Tell me about what you are doing now.
Have a REALLY, Really wonderful day. I value your friendship and the insightful words you give me. Have a great rest of the day!! ️
I guess you're right, Water girl. I have to admit that in the last couple of months, I have been really irritable and short on patience lately, and impulsive. Perhaps I need to ground myself.
Hi @peacemaker! So sorry for the spam over the long weekend. They snuck up on us while we were away, but we'll keep a close eye out in case they're around the corner.

@tuliplilly hey! Yes i do use the adult coloring books and penciles. I like all kinds of pictures, I have everything from fairies to landscape. I usually get mine from a hobby store got some from Walmart but they dont seem to have the variety they used to. I think I have close to 200 books lol and have been known to tear pages out and send to people for no reason or I've sent a book or two. I've recently gotten into diamond art its alot like color by number but with stones. Its fun and its time consuming but relaxing. I still color often as well. I'd post pics of my work but don't know of allowed or how lol. Let me know if you have any other questions I'd be more than happy to answer and chat with ya!!!
@jodomi I'm just seeing this, and I'm very sorry for the late reply. I wasn't real close to my moms dad as I just met him when I was 16 (I think) and didn't spend much time with him before his passing. I was close to my dads parents spent every summer with them. My moms mom was super close to her as she would watch my daughter when she was young. I'm so glad that my daughter got to grow up with amazing people. They were extremely artistic and musically inclined. I've recently found that I am too. Just wish they could have seen it. Thank you all so much for taking the time to help me with this.
