Was a single parent for 12 years. Worked night-shift, to be home for kids to get them off to school. Got little sleep and lost my social life.. I have never recovered. Just moved into a senior community, and like it here.
I still have trouble being around the people in the clubhouse. Everybody has little cliches. Haven't found me one or sure if I want one. My Apt is modest but very comfortable. I downsized to next to nothing. Strangely, I find that a comforting thought. I like this website. Scads of fine folks.
