Every Day Conversations / Stronger together
« Last post by haidyl on Today at 04:32:06 AM »
Do you at times find it hard to push yourself out of the comfort zone until you find that person that you become accountable to? It hasn't been easy for me to exercise regularly on my own and now I am thinking of a gym membership. Are we always stronger together?

I totally love long drives but I know a number of people who dread being behind the steering wheel. CountryMom, do you get that adrenaline rush when speeding? I will join you and MaryB for that road trip.

Our Empty Nest Marriage / Re: Married and Lonely

I think the whole point of marriage is companionship beyond friendship. We cut off friends and devote our all to this one person and the least they can do is to reciprocate. The fact that you have been together for that long is a pointer to how well you understand each other. It almost feels like a unique approach (that I can't figure out yet) will bring out his soft side.

Our Empty Nest Marriage / Married and Lonely
« Last post by MaryB on Yesterday at 10:52:22 PM »
What a dangerous combination,  marriage and loneliness!   
Sometimes I get beside myself with frustration.  Married 40 years and lonely.   I cant talk on the phone, or have friends over, or go visit to "just get out"...   because I'm married..  and he does not seem to understand needing companionship.  Argggggg  I get so angry over it.. 
No nothing can be done... I'm just complaining.  Anyone else married but lonely?

Wait....what app is this that tells you the money your  list will cost?  I must have that..   please!!!!   :039:


Yes,  I have to plan too.. Even planning I run out sometimes.  When it's so hard to plan and stretch a dollar, then you cook and people you cook for say,  I'm not hungry or I'm not in the mood..  I want to ping them!!!  It's like that is a meal I could have made another day then..  they do not understand how hard it is to be responsible for every meal every one eats.  I'm tired of it.  I'm going to run away, and you're driving!   :13:

Every Day Conversations / Driving

I LOVE to drive. It's probably my favorite activity. I find it very relaxing and it totally clears my mind. I often take the longest possible  route home on purpose. Everyone I know always complains about driving and finds it to be a massive chore. Does anyone here share my love of driving?

Thanks, Mary! I have only been able to handle very small meals due to the issues I'm having with my stomach. I would say I used to eat double the amount of food per meal that I eat right now, but I eat more often. So essentially it's the "eat small meals several times a day" diet plan. It also doesn't hurt that I had to cut out chocolate, candy, chips, soda, etc. If it were my choice, I'd still be eating tons of candy.  :rofl:
