Do you smell bleach?
And Diet Coke?
Hello. I sometimes smell oatmeal, too. :smile:

I smell Purple Salvia & Blue Lobelia blooming.
If only you were a guy & said those things to me...we'd be on our way to the altar (or elsewhere)...
It made me teary that you would remember such intimate details.
(Long time no talk, terry...I still don't have your email address!)

Land's End has own brand backpacks with electroluminescent lights in a variety of colors for $15 with free shipping using code FREESHIPPING and pin 530553055. Thanks slpmom
Fen is just so sexy when he gets down to business, isn't he? Heh.
In other news, Dad goes in for his heart operation this Thursday, February 28th. I took some time off work to take Mom to the hospital (which is in downtown Boston) as she doesn't drive to/in the city.
I am on three committees...the activities committee, the web site committee and the reunion committee at that separated, divorced and widowed support group thing I go to.
I've been asked on two dates, but nothing/no one special and am getting better with the "let's be friends/I'm not ready to date" speech. It is really difficult to find someone that provides satisfactory intellectual stimulation. I have heard some corny lines lately...too embarrassing to write here.
I've started a book club. There are about 15-20 participants. We are on the second book, The Glass Castle. If any of you like to read, it is a NY Times Best Seller and is a page turner...
I've decided to drive to Kentucky (with Fen's prodding) the week in April that will be my one year anniversary from the separation and coincidentally includes Robert Smith's birthday (pending nothing get scheduled for that time i.e. court). I've always wanted to go...the rolling hills, the hay bales, the horses, the rising mist...and tons and tons of green grass. Believe it or not, I haven't had much time to myself (to figure out what's next) & am looking forward to being alone...
My 3 cats are fantastic. I love them dearly. All of them sleep on the bed with me at night which is helpful as it makes the bed seem less empty. I still sleep with a vertical pillow to divide the space. I've also made some breakthroughs with the most skittish one. I've gotten her to lie in the crook of my arm, expose her belly for rubbing and she in turn rubs her head against my chin or cheek. We just need to work on the time a little bit better...2 and 4 am are not mutually convenient times.
Understandably, I still have those feeling sorry for myself, what a sad-sack of *bleep* days. When I see a pregnant woman, I get a little queazy...wondering if that is the one...
I miss everyone. I am thankful for those who have kept in touch. It means a great deal to me. I feel you are all true friends. Until next time...
