Re: Thinking of removing myself from my adult children's lives

First, thanks for the replies. I've been thinking about this a little and I think the answer lies somewhere in-between, probably something like Kay Kay is stating.

Thinking of removing myself from my adult children's lives

I'll try to keep this as short as possible. My husband passed away close to 11 years ago. My daughters were 19 and 23 at the time.

My eldest is married to a wonderful guy who is in the Marines...

Re: A question regarding never married/no children individuals

Well putting your interests first isn't always bad, agreed. Being as my kids are grown now and gone, I do a lot of that myself. But, the descriptions I'm seeing here don't come close to describing...

Re: A question regarding never married/no children individuals

A question regarding never married/no children individuals

I will start by saying that I spent the majority of my adult life married with children. We therefore naturally spent a lot of time around other married couples, with children.

Since my husband's...

Re: A favorite quote that I try to remember, but sometimes forget

Re: A favorite quote that I try to remember, but sometimes forget

I like all of those also. All true! The first quote and the one's I listed below all came from a show I watched, Revenge, which followed the same theme as "The Count of Monte Cristo".

Re: Am I Being Awkward?

Glad it worked out. I'm not sure what kind of relationship Ged and Poppy have. But if it's a girlfriend/boyfriend intimate one, it wouldn't matter much if the other person was a talker or not. I...

When at a crossroads “go with your gut”. Intuition always has our best interests at heart. It is a voice that can tell you who is friend and who is foe, which ones to hold at arm’s length and which...

Re: Need some advice on not repeating mistake

You are right KayKay. Nothing illegal to report. But it wouldn't surprise me to see her on the news, that's for sure. LOL I will just have to steer clear of her. If she's as out there as I think...

Re: Need some advice on not repeating mistake

I have one other question for those reading this post. Given her temper and disposition, should this be reported to the rental office? I do not say this with the thought in mind that they could do...

Re: Need some advice on not repeating mistake

Thanks Knot2loud. You and the others are all right. I guess I just wanted reassurance on this issue.
