I stand on the beach alone,and gaze at the misty blue... I wish I could pause this moment forever...

This is the only place where I dare to exhale that I know I will be alone for the rest of my life. I won't tell it anywhere else to any living person. On the few times I said something the hearer was moved to tell me I am wrong and to try and comfort me by telling me I am wrong. Based on whimsey and only whimsey they tell me I will meet someone. Stop and think. Add up the facts. I will be single for the rest of my life.

I don't want comfort in it, I just want someone to say "you're right." And then, if they absolutely must try to make the awkward situation better then they can say 'and I know you are strong and will be happy."

Not "oh no you'll meet someone." Not "STOP SAYING THAT. You can find someone if you want to."

Help me to embrace myself, as a single person, who can find happy moments and worthwhile work. If I seem to be getting lonely just remind me that being single for the rest of my life isn't the worst thing that could happen to me.

Blow'd Up

This depicts the very reason I want so badly to go back and vacation in the WDW area every chance I get. The drama and fun! The spectacle! The explosions!!

Maybe we can find a way to just squeeze out a week in the Fall.

minnie ears at Splash Mountain

Tonight I was unable to quickly state how many times I've been to WDW... can you imagine?!

So after thinking a bit theres:

first time
2nd time (we went in August for a full week)
anniversary with just my (ex) husband
time with my sister
time i took my eldest son who had never been at all
then the time I went with my girls and David
and November 2008 when all the kids came along

'7' times!!

But don't think I'm done going to WDW. Nope. I'll be back some day. There's always the graaaaaandbabies. Heh.

Funny... usually.

This is a GREAT photo. I love that the boy is laughing open mouthed at something he finds obviously hysterical. The girl is amused as well, but she is intent on keeping her eyes open while she enjoys the humor.

it reminds me of when I was out earlier today. Something funny was said. I was driving. As we all know, laughter is the best medicine, and good for the soul, which I agree with in theory.

But I was driving. And laughing alot like this boy. I couldn't help it. My son retold me a story and it was THAT funny. So funny in fact that my eyeballs nearly burst out of my skull from the force of my hysterical laughter. I think I pulled a gut muscle or something. We almost died in a car accident.

Then I stopped laughing, wiped the tears away. popped my eyeballs back into the sockets and thought a 'sad thought' untiil we arrived at our destination in one piece.

Now don't let this stop you from cracking a joke next time the mood strikes. Just don't do it while someone else is driving.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.

I am where I do and am not where I don't. Not what I was or will be, just 'me'.
