I am home for a few weeks after having major surgery and, having a lot of time on my hands I started to read a lot of blogs. The more I read the more I thought that I might be able to do it too. I could write down all of my thoughts and the funny things that happen to me and maybe, I will make someone laugh and maybe, brighten their day a little bit, or not. I might not be as funny to others as I am to myself. I mean, I really crack myself up sometimes but I notice that most of the time I am the only one laughing.
I'll tell you a little bit about myself. I live in a very, very, ultra small town in Missouri. In fact if the road didn't curve I could stand in my front yard and take a picture of the whole town. Yeah, the little curve in the road makes the town look larger. Yeah, right.
I have been divorced for the last 13 or more years and I was surprised when I realized that I had never, ever, ever, lived on my own before! My sons are full grown and have families of their own and they really don't want to live with good old Mom and I just haven't found anyone that I want to give up my freedom too (now that I am used to having freedom). I was scared at first and didn't know how I was going to do it on my own but it has turned out to be so good and I am so happy to be alone that sometimes I'll burst out singing and there isn't anyone here to tell me to shut up! It is wonderful.
I can't be called a "Cat Woman" because I never really got very attached to cats but, dogs are a whole different thing. I have six Chihuahuas! They are so awesome! I love that they are small and cannot get on the dinner table. They all sleep with me so there is no need of an electric blanket in the winter and if they are in my way they don't get mad if I give them a little push. In fact they don't get mad at me for anything I do. I work 12 hour shifts and they are so happy to see me when I get home. I left them home when I went to Oklahoma to visit my sister and her family and, although they didn't like my best friend coming over to check on them they didn't take it out on me when I got home. Are you noticing what I am saying here? If I had a partner and left him like I do my dogs there would be lots of problems. Am I being selfish now in my old age? I am thinking that once the old age hit me I got tired of putting myself last all of the time.
I hope that my bad grammar and spelling (I am using spell check but, sometimes things slip by) hasn't put you off. It has been a long time since I have been to school and I must admit that I was not a good student at all. For me school was all about boys, boys, boys.
Well, I will post this now and see if anyone reads this thing.
