  • 3rd Dday and 32nd wedding anniversary

    Monday, May 12, 2014 | A Positive story

    Our 3rd Dday anniversary (Discovery day that my husband found out about my affair) and our 32nd wedding anniversary are only 4 days apart.  Sunday was our Dday anniversary and Thursday is my wedding anniversary.  We spent this last weekend at a bed and breakfast in honor of both.  It was a wonderful weekend.  There is nothing like spending all that quality time focused on each...

  • Well I completed my goal

    Saturday, April 26, 2014 | A Positive story

    yippee !
    As most of you already know, I gave up sweets for Lent. The dirty half-dozen--cookies, cake, pie, candy, donuts, and ice cream. Now that Lent is over, I must be careful not to start to indulge in sweets too frequently. Will aim for one normal portion once a week. 
    Thanks for your support. Love to All.
    xo Judy

  • My husband and I, because of snoring and I guess just generally sleeping better, sleep separately and have for years. 
    He has very strict rules concerning his mornings.
    1. I cannot arise before 6 a.m.
    2. If I should awaken prior to  this time, I am to use the upstairs bathroom as Mother Nature often calls upon awakening and he doesn't want to be awakened. (NOTE: Should he awaken prior t...

  • Doing okay

    Thursday, March 5, 2015 | A Positive story

    I'm really doing okay. I really am. I still have so many things to figure out, like where to live, how to make money- you know the hard stuff. But I am so much better just by not being with him.
    This feeling I've had the past 2 days is freedom. The huge weight of his control over me is lifting. I can come & go as I like. I can sleep & eat as I like. :)
    I have applied for an apartment that...

  • Starting over again

    Monday, March 9, 2015 | A Positive story

    I am happy & I am sad. I saw him on 3 separate occasions this week. A good friend of ours died so we were both around the family and at the funeral. It was weird and uncomfortable being around each other in the same group of people that we were always together with. We were like doing some kind of dance, slipping back in forth from acting like a couple to acting like mere acquaintances. And t...

  • How Do They Write Lyrics So Beautiful?

    Wednesday, June 24, 2015 | An Inspiring story

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pufMSqzG1g
    "Goodbye Is All We Have"
    I'm soaring the sky
    I can hear the birds and man they don't lie
    How you gonna catch me, when I'm this high
    I'm moving on
    I got the words to a brand new song
    How you gonna catch me, when I'm this close
    [Chorus:]
    Gone tomorrow here today
    Just in case you got somethin' to say
    I'll be leaving with the rest if
    Goodbye is all we have

  • Love Oldies but Goodies -- Musically Speaking

    Tuesday, January 6, 2015 | A Positive story

    Was driving back after Christmas and pulled into a Flying J on the way home when the gas light came on.
    You may not know this, but Flying J always has the cheapest gas in my state. It is also a truck stop I noticed, complete with showers adjacent to the bathrooms, but I digress.
    They had a bin of CDs near the register and I couldn't help myself. I had an hour left to go and I was bored and needed...

  • To new beginings~!

    Monday, July 1, 2013 | A Positive story

    I got rid of an anchor in my life and I am moving down the waters freely now. I broke up with my controlling boyfriend last week and never would I thought that I'd be ever so content. I have been flaring up less this passed weekend. My new place is great. My roommates are friendly, fun, laid back and just plain awesome. We had fun going out on the town saturday night. This is the life that I miss...
