I'll talk more about my job choices on a different day. If we continue to all get to know each other I can provide some REALLY unique insight on a few things. Oooo I got secrets, to be sure. Not relationship stuff. My wife and I are putting each other through the ringer at present, but it'll pass, and one day well be gracious to one another again. Long road.

About to call it a night. Ate a big dinner. Got kids baths, did all the weeks laundry ( (sucks mega- butt doing it sober), now cleaned up and about to flop out for the night.
Got my 4wlr out from under the house to start working on tomorrow. I'm no mechanic so it's gonna take a while. Got to replace a joint that's broken and sucking air into the fuel system. Doesn't really run, it just kind of coughs sickly like schlep-car from the "wonder bug" kids show - late 70s early 80s ( cough cough).

Anyway, will waken to DAY 14. Each day is a milestone for me, it feels like. This is so hard, and I hope, rewarding as I'll get to live my life instead of suffering through it from a painful choice.
If we didn't drink today, then that day was a gift. I'm thankful, and I love you guys. Y'all help keep an old USMC veteran, daddy, 2 job worker, ( struggling husband),
Straight, and I appreciate y'all.
You all
You'uns
Youse guys.
Hell , I don't know !! Lol

Good night JL. That was a beautiful post. I'm turning in also. Wishing sweet dreams to all the doodles on this side of the world and a beautiful afternoon to the ones on the other side of the world.

For the non Yanks, "slammer" is jail, and I don't know about where y'all* are from, but in the US, it's a really f-ing scary place, even as a female. I don't dare imagine what it could be, as a male. I could write an entire novel on my night there, but I don't think I will, unless I can think of a REALLY good pen name.

As a type 1 diabetic who was taken away from her insulin, it made things even worse. But I survived, and the toughest broad [= "lady"] in the cell even hugged me at the end. The Higher Power works in mysterious ways? [Or maybe I'm scarier than I think. LOL]

I need to re-wire my thinking into looking at it more positively, as I have in the past. Another problem is the neighbors here… they make being outside a much less favorable experience than at my old place. They make a sh*t ton of noise, daily. This used to be a rural area, but it no longer is -- they're not very up to speed. Putting up a massive fence recently has helped, YES! Anyhoo, rather than get all angry and drink [while gardening - not super safe], I just decide to go do something else when they act up. It still sucks, though! Do you grow many Aussie native plants? Another Australian botanist that I know here in CA asks me "WHY do you grow those weeds?" LOL. Your native birds thrive on them, so why grow anything else over there? I wanted to study botany at Uni, but my dad didn't think I'd ever find a decent job.
Gardengal! I never got a chance to respond to you X
Sorry to hear about your nasty neighbors. That would really upset me. I love that my home is my sanctuary. We have a lot of natives here but I tend to go for the more cottage garden style exotics. My husband loves natives. We have lots of mountain ash trees and grevillea.
There was also heaps of hydrangeas, rhododendrons and ferns already established when we bought it.
I'm really just learning but enjoying it a lot. I tend to always be drawn towards magnolias. I think they are stunning!

Ooohh i'd love to know your chickpea masala recipe please auggie?

Really struggling with this right now. The snooping has been more than I could imagine. Long relationship, no cheating on my part or anything even close to it. Would love to be in oblivion.

Hey everybody, me again. I just wanted to share that I am getting my recycling out in a timely and adult manner, and for once I'm not staggering down the driveway drunk at 2:00 a.m. dragging the recycling bins.

I used to be very jealous in my relationships, it took me time to realize that if you go looking you will find. Even if it's nothing your brain will warp it into something. It was all rooted in my own insecurity. I'm sorry you have to deal with that.
