    I remember reading this book to my children and not to long ago I actually saw one of my grandchildren reading this same book.

    Today I feel like I'm living the title of this book. To much winter, to many new aches and pains, to many people who aren't here anymore that I'm missing today.

    So I'm listening to my favorite music, junking out on the junk foods I can still eat, and allowing myself a five minute pity party every two hours.

    Tomorrow will be a new day, but today I feel just like Alexander with his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day! :eek:

    Well cheer up, Babs...when I get into a funk I let the tears flow...I can cry very easily and it helps. I actually prefer winter and am happier this time of year than the hot summer...I have more energy now, get lazy in the summer.

    My favorite books to read to my younger grandsons were llama, llama..red pajama and some other titles that I've forgotten. There's quite a few of these llama llama books. Sadly the author just died last year at age 50 of brain cancer, I think.

    Also, be happy you got a Honey, most of you on here do...I don't and I have to deal with everything myself. ...my latest was my gutter...in all this rain one part pulled away from the roof. I've been trying to get someone to fix it but they're all swamped now because of all the rain. Today when Alfonso came I asked him if he could help me...he said "yes" like he always does...I wanted to kiss him but I just gave him $40 and although I still need to probably have someone come out, I can now wait and not worry about it.

    I told him I appreciated him, just felt like saying that today.

    Anyway, I'm not saying you have it easier or harder than me, just felt like adding that...everybody is entitled to a pity party is my motto.

    We all have bad days @Chrissy Cross and as long as I don't have them every day that's okay with me. I just wanted to feel free to share this part of me here too. :) I'm not the kind of person who wants to pretend they are always nice or always happy, etc. not even online.

    I don't like winter anymore as the cold weather brings to many aches and pains to my aging body now and makes me feel so tired all the time and with the new health issues I've been dealing with since last December I'm having a rough time of it right now. All of us who are aging have these days and we should be able to say so if we feel like it.

    I'm thankful for my Honey and for all of my family and friends. But a person can be surrounded by a spouse, family, and friends...and still feel so alone at times. In spite of all my blessings my life is far from perfect....and I want to feel free to express that here too. :)

    I'm glad you did, I am the same except for the winter part. Fresno is just toooo hot in the summer and thankfully my aches and pains aren't affected by weather.

    I was just trying to cheer you up @Babs Hunt ...guess I failed. :(

    Very pretty! Red isn't easy to do!

    Lol, now you're talking! Although if I were to drink it would be vodka something for me...it was my drink of choice back in the good old days.

    Yeah! I thought that was a good drink to have since I was getting plenty of vitamin C with it! :rolleyes:

    Ha ha! True, now that I think about it my absolute favorites were Bloody Marys

    Have you seen how far those have come...with the bacon, etc on the skewers.

    When my sisters and I get together we have "Virgin Bloody Mary's" when we go out to eat together....as no one wants to be the designated driver!;)

    And boy they really are making them fancy now!

    IMG_4110.JPG I have no problem coloring my hair red, this is the color I used Light Golden Brown, I have so much red pigment in my hair that unless I use one of the ash browns I always end up with red hair. :)

    I've tried to color my own hair a few times but because it's long and I can't see the back of my head to do just roots after a few times it's a disaster.

    I get highlights done now mostly when I go to my daughter's house, her stylist is good with blonde and not outrageous in price. With highlights you don't have to do it as often.

    The last time I colored my hair I did go to the one who cuts my hair and has been my stylist for years. It cost me $130. with the tip. I don't think coloring my hair is worth spending that much of our hard earned money on. And I would ask my daughters to help me...but they are all so busy working and raising their own kids now, etc. But the box of hair color costs just a few dolllars and if I leave my glasses on when I do my roots then the rest of my hair is not hard to saturate for 10 minutes with the color. I just do it like I'm washing my hair and make sure the color gets all through my hair. It was not hard at all this time and it came out well too. My hair needs a trim as it is pretty long right now and I was afraid one box wasn't going to be enough but it worked out just fine.

    I paid about $145 last time for cut, roots and highlights but I don't go that often...every few months or when something special is happening.

    My hair is many shades of blonde, plus I need 2 boxes. My sister does her blonde by herself and it's really nice but her hair is short.

    What I really wish I could do today is just pack my bags and get in my little dream car God blessed with and hit the road to Florida and the beach!

    I havent seen him in at least 6-7 years, and the reason we split was alcohol. :(

    He's in Ohio now...that's where he's from and spent his whole life there, just moved to Fresno to be with me 8 yrs ago. His family is all in Ohio too.

    Something to think about for sure....I could use his help so much but I just don't know if it's worth the stress.

    But oh how I love my alcoholic @Chrissy Page and he may not be perfect but I'm not either. He's my Honey and I'm keeping him as long as God gifts me with him. But I think you have posted before that your ex drinks and you weren't happy about that... all I can say is you are a grown woman and you know what you can put up with and what you can't ...and that's what you should base your decisions on.

    I think you are feeling that lonliness right now too and all the things you have to do seems overwhelming to you. But it might be better to hire a handyman to fix things instead of getting yourself in a "fix" with a man you know isn't right for you.
