Hi! I am a boomer child - grew up in the late 50s and 60s. The world has changed a great deal since those days. My body has too! I'm on a weight loss journey for health reasons. My daddy died of a heart attack when I was 9 years old and my mom has had a heart attack and open-heart surgery. So I am exercising and eating healthy to protect my heart from its genetic legacy.

My daddy died of a heart attack when I was 9 years old and my mom has had a heart attack and open-heart surgery. So I am exercising and eating healthy to protect my heart from its genetic legacy.

I'm married to my high school sweetheart. We have 3 grown and married children and 7 grandchildren, 4 girls and 3 boys. They are the light in my life.

I am a retired elementary school teacher. I tutor students during the school year now and do lots of reading.

Donna,, her breathing is now affected,, badly so. INSTEAD of throughly cleaning,,,, she buys an AIR FILER Machne !! Can you BELIEVE THAT??? makes NO SENSE to me !1 She has her cat box,, so FULL of PEE and POOP- that there's NO LITTER SHOWING,, its ALL SOLID !! that POOR CAT !! he's getting ALL STRESSED OUT !! His fur in coming out ,,, according to my GD,,,, who has FORBIDDEN me from going over,,, she KNOWS how EASILY i get infections.

I feel so BAD for the cat,, but, he's older,,, and not that well,, he'll soon pass on,,,,,, than she'll probably get even WORSE,,, cos she'll be "totally alone". She WILL NOT and HAD BETTER NOT EVER get another animal,, but she is AWARE of this ! she got this cat,, when her D was in kindergarden. my GD was to take him with her,, but the place she lives in does NOT allow animals. The place is nice,, and is owned by someone she knows,, so the rent isNOT much,, they are saving for a house.

With the DIRT,, the CAT POO,,, WIZZ,,,, and ALSO this past summer,, she FOUND BABY MICE !!! U KNOW if she's finding BABIES,, the PARENTS are ALSO there !! She NO longer tells me about her place,,, she KNOWS ALL I DO IS FLIP OUT ! its a subject we can NOT talk about. I am SURE the walls,,, over near the closet,, and continuing around the room,,,,, which is 12 X 11,,, I KNOW it HAS to be BLACK MOLD,, for she never has cleaned that in 8 yrs,,,,, and throws down wet towels there, to "dry" on the floor,, hitting the walls,, that is NOT good !!

I WATCHED her being raised,, her Mom had 9 kids (hence why she needed another Mom,, friend,, and our relationship esp since her Mom died yrs ago) the house she was raised in,, was VEry, VERy CLEAN, ,, NOT OCD, but quite clean. Her Mom did very well,, now here's a part of the prob,,, her Mom did HER cleaning,, she was #8 of the kids,, and yet,, she was the baby (not her younger sister who was quickly more woldly),,,, so Mmmy took care of her,, yet both her parents drank,, heavily,, and she felt responsible to keep them apart,,, and to be "ALWAYS HAPPY" so that they would be,, and they would NOT fight,, LOL It didn't work, but she was a CHILD and did as children do "If I behave well,, they won't fight,, its MY FAULT" though of course it was NOT her fault,,,,, than she married,,, had a S,, he died of twisted bowels,, at age 2 1/2 so she got even worse than she was,, than she was in the car accident which almost killed my GD,,,,, so yeah,, she does NOT cope at all.

Wanna help her move when it happens? I AM NOT DOING SO !!! I've ALREADY FLATLY TOLD her,, I've done that ENOUGh and I AM DONE with it !

Awww TY for LOVING my page.

Brrrr on yesterday !!! Sounds like you were ICE COLD to the BONE !! I was earlier on today,,,,, i had to go out to an appt,,, and it was POURING OUT as HARD AS IT COULD BE !! In less than 5 seconds I was DRENCHED !! the wind was blowing about 20 MPH,,, so yeah,,,, it SHOOTS right thru you !!,,, the weather IDIOTS kept saying "Its almost 60 ! Its GREAT " !! Apparently they have NO brain, and only look at "the temp and NOT at the AIR Feeling,,, "Wind chill" which most likely bought us near 30s.

So did ya evah warm up? I am SOOO FORTUNATE in that my landlord pays for my HEAT and ALSO My electricity ! WOOHOOOO !! yeah the rent is more for it,, but it's SOO WORTH IT !! Where my friend lives,, where I WAS /MAY ??? go back to,, the luxury apt,, when I can,,, 3 or 4 yrs from now,,, IF it works out,,,, if she's not living there,,, I prob will stay on this end of city. I do NOT like that end,,,, for it's near the mall. (LOL For MANY EONS of yrs,, it was the ONLY Mall in Maine ! LOL),, now there are 3. IMAGINE ??? !!!!!

My friend is ALWAYS COLD ! I am ALWAYS HOT ! She's the one I had felt so bad about being possibly evicted,,, now she can't afford her rent,, and also to pay bills,,,,, she's been a GOOD LITTLE Ostrich and PUTTING HER HEAD INTO THE SAND and INGORING IT !! Now it's at a crisis point,, today I MADE her go to the Housing place in the city and fill out an application. I HAD b4 back in the summer,, had she of KEPT that appt,,, most likely she'd be able to KEEP her car,,, and PAY her bills. But, she KEEPS saying "I DO NOT WANT TO MOVE" She KNOWS NONE of us WANT to move her ,, ,she's a PIG,, and we ALWAYS end up cleaning up YRS OF GARBAGE ,, and tub, sinks, stove, fridge,, cos she NEVER cleans them,, she's been there for 8 yrs. NO FREAK OUT WAY am I going to "help her" ,, she can CRY ALL SHE WANTS,,, I AM NOT going too. She told me,,, b4 her inspection "I haven't vacumned in a YEAR " !!!! She thought that was GOOD !! HUH???? I do not have rugs,, but, I SWEEP my floors,, at LEAST 2 or 3 times a week,, in the winter DAILY. I can NOT IMAGINE !!!
