Not a psychic & you may already know this. Certified mail is usually used for notice purposes in legal actions or before legal action is taken, proof of delivery of a purchase or something innocuous as a letter from your homeowner's assn telling you to cut your grass. There has to be a return address. When you go to pick it up at the P.O. you have the option to accept or refuse to sign but state so beforehand so the receipt is not removed from the envelope. If you refuse to sign it, the mail is returned marked, "refused" which tells the sender you saw the envelope or package. Refused or unclaimed mail will appear to the sender that you are most likely at that address; and the sender will probably follow up with resending it by regular mail.

RE: Can someone ease my mind on who is sending me certified mail
RE: Could anyone interpret dreams please?
I enjoy doing this & went to dreammoods for reference. I looked for date, July and calendar:
"To dream of a date, as in a particular, month, day and year, represents the passing of time and past events. The dream may also be a reminder of a special event, appointment or important date in your waking life. Also consider the significance of the numbers in the date."
Did you actually see a calendar or the numbers which you interpretted as July 3?
"To dream of the month of July, signifies hope, knowledge or productivity."
"To see a calendar in your dream, represents the passing of time and past events. The dream may also be a reminder of a special event, appointment or important date in your waking life. "
RE: WHY DO WOMEN ACCEPT MARRIED MEN?
Wow, that's so surprising that a lawyer would put himself in that situation, especially, a divorce lawyer and with an employee or subordinate. Perhaps, he has a prenup with the wife with no out clauses such as infidelity and partners who tolerate possible sexual harrassment cases. That is really not smart on his part or the firm. You're right, it's hard to understand unless you've walked in someone else's shoes. Don't be so hard on yourself. There was probably a good lesson in there for you. Life's not easy & we all have our own journey. Good luck to you.
AuntBuck and Jenever7,
Thanks so much for your support and motivation. I really do appreciate it and it does help to share with others. I've been busy with getting the house ready to list with a realtor so I've not had time to get online lately. I will be checking your threads and will post back here when things are more settled and I know in which direction I might be going.
Have a wonderful week ladies.
Thanks for the shot in the arm Jenever7. I have so many influences that are throwing the age card in my face at this point, be it friends or a particular job interview that was a slap in the face. For a Leo, that's hard to take sometimes. My appearance does not give my age away but on paper I cannot lie. I graduated with only an associates degree in 1984 in legal assisting. However, perspective employers seem to overlook the fact that I am proficient microsoft office, trained more than 20 people in one office, and have done everything from payroll to research & writing of complex legal documents. I've always done what was asked of me to the standard expected or above. It's such a shock to me to not be appreciated anymore and I don't know what I've done to deserve it.
That's just how competive the job market is and it's more brutal in the area in which I reside. I had one perspective employer (appeared to be similar in age to me) say: "you graduated in '84, that was before computers wasn't it? I just have so many resumes to go through and my last employee was a recent college grad & was just so sharp. Ahh, I just don't know."
I had been used to more friendly interviews that had nothing to do with my confidence. I do feel I need to get into another field where I have more independence, to be my own boss, or perhaps a more liberal, corporate atmosphere. Thanks for the encouragement. Wish me luck.
Wow, thank you for being so generous in sharing your inspirational story. It's funny how so many of us strike a common chord with each other on this forum.
I do seem calm because I have come to a resolve to make some changes in my life. Like you, I know it's the right time. While I'm getting the house ready to put on the market I will continue to look for a job here knowing that once the house sells I will probably be leaving the area. I did work for 30 years as a paralegal, while raising a family, and up to Aug '08. That is when I moved here with my husband per his career move. The economy in this part of the state has since the 80's been on a down turn. I've not been unable to find a comparable job. So I've been doing volunteer work which has been satisfying. However, I expected to but have not made any real connections for jobs or friends at these associations. While I am so ready to make some changes, I feel that it probably won't be in the area in which I am currently residing.
I see myself relocating to the state where my children live and getting a realtor's license there. The economy is better there and I feel I have the skills to make the transition easily. I'd also would like to continue my education to complete a bachelor's degree & perhaps continue further. I've always liked learning. I would do this, of course, for me alone as there are no guarantees that any degree will further a career for me at my age.
I feel better already just talking about it and visualizing it makes it seem achievable. Thank you again for your kind words of encouragement, insight and good, practical advice. I wish the best for you, your children and your continued success in your journey in life. I feel fortunate to have this forum and caring people such as yourself to discuss our issues and to be sounding boards that we all need. These are tough subjects that are not always appropriate to discuss with your closest friend and you need other perspectives.
Peace, Light and Blessings to you.
Thanks for responding. I'm sorry for the vague post. I was writing from my heart & attempting to search within me at the same time. I feel as though I've lost control and direction of my life. I've chosen to support & follow my husband's career but always felt my input & efforts contributed to his/our success. Somehow along the way & within the past 3 years he no longer takes my advice & makes decisions without consulting me. Now I'm doubting my ability to make any decision and what's worse is I can't remember who I was or what I wanted prior to having a family. My three wishes would be
1. Have a career again (would need to go back to college & can't make a decision on that)
2. Live near my grown children or have the freedom to see them more often
3. Have an emotionally supportive partner again
I consider myself to be a lucky person & have been blessed with a good life, children. Most people who know me would think that I would be crazy to leave a good man & after 30 years together. It may also sound like empty nest syndrome but I was fine with life until we moved 2 years ago to an area where I did not want to go. He said it was the only option he had at the time, but of course, it was the only option he would consider. Against my judgment then & since he has made many decisions that were either desperate & not thought out. I can't continue that pattern & I know we will have to separate. Further, I feel selfish & I'm guilted by wanting to leave when faced with problems that can be fixed. Most likely he will find a job within a couple months, our home will stay on the market, the monthly mortgage will be paid, he will be relocated and I will have the option to stay in the home until it sells or go somewhere else. I saw this scenario in my head two years ago when we made the first move & feel this time I will not go with him. What remain are future decisions.
Thank you so much for listening. LL
I've not started a topic for a long time & the website doesn't make it easy. Not a user friendly site, but I'll adapt.
I can't find my purpose or value anymore no matter what inspiration I seek whether from within, meditation or advice from others. Not helping is the fact that my husband quit his job last week without consulting me & without a job to go to. I, nor he has been in this position before. In the past, problems seem to motivate me. I don't seem to care anymore & am afraid where this might lead. He has equated his job status to his self worth. I have assimulated to his beliefs (being a supportive wife) & did not think that I would be here at this point with him. I could embrace the situation and feel that it is a new beginning knowing that we will lose everything we have worked for but will have new beginning.
He has not listened to me & nor have I been involved in the decision making within the past 10 years. I've felt my input or spirit slip away as a matter of being supportive. How far should a spouse continue to support the other? When do you know that there is no value there any longer?
