Hey there WD - my friend!

Wanted to give you a quick update on the family.

First of all, my son and his wife are doing wonderfully - stalker babe is still in jail, and we are hoping she will remain there for a long time. My daughter-in-law gave birth to triplets a year ago and the twins are now two! And... they have just found out that despite her use of birth control, she is expecting yet another set of twins. After much discussion on their part, they have decided that this will be the end of their baby making years, and she is opting to have her tubes tied after the birth in seven months.

My daughter, as you know is up and walking, her last surgery having been a huge success. She is busy working and helping her husband with his practice, but her most exciting news is that she has decided to complete her degree. She has, however, made the additional decision to change her degree, and although it will involve more schooling on her part - she has decided that she wants to become a counselor that works with abused families. This is such a big step for her, but she is very ready to do this!

All is well, busy with work and all. I hope you are well, and life is treating you with kindness.

Love,

Z.

Hi Mama & SD,

No, I don't mind either of you popping in at all!

Yes, this has indeed been very good news for our family.

We are all doing well, just keeping busy.

How are you both doing?

Z.

Hi Z:

I'm doing great- can't complain about a thing. Business is thriving, bought a new car, and I am dating. Nothing promising yet, but just that fact that I want to date is HUGE. So- enjoying life right now. Sooooo much better than before w/ the exbf. There really is life after a-holes.

Thanks for asking. SD

Hi SD,

Yes! There is indeed life after A-holes! Although I have not been in the dating arena for many years - I do recall one guy I dated years ago - total jerk... and my surprise when later some of the guys I dated were... dare I say it? Well... they were NICE!

Some I had fun with, and went out a few times, a few I went out with and though there might not have been a spark romantically, we became friends. One guy that I dated oh so many years ago - after my first husband died and I had relocated to Texas; I just ran into him! No kidding about two weeks ago. He is doing well. Married and divorced, has two daugthers and life was kind to him. I was so happy to hear that.

What kind of car did you buy?

Glad to hear you are doing so well.

Z.

Hi Z:

I bought a BMW!! I've always wanted one, decided I'm not gettng any younger (turned 50 this year) and so I went for it. I absolutely love it. Its white w/ tan interior- quite the nice ride. Much better than my 15 year old Toyota. We only live once, right? And if don't treat myself well, who will?

As for the dating, I'm on my third bachelor since starting this in January. Its been sort of fun- I'm not looking at getting serious very soon- so I've just been practicing dating skills, and trying to find the healthiest relationship possible. With someone I'm attracted to, of course! I have learned so much in the nearly 2 years here at AAC- my eyes have really been opened as to what I should expect. It is so much easier now to detect problems early on.

I'm so glad you're back. Used to enjoy your posts so much and you are truly an inspiration.

Thanks, SD

Z,
Saw you were back and just had to say hi! Your posts were such an inspirataion to me, and you were such a help through my divorce.

Zinnie, I met a wonderful man on eharmony and I am so happy with him. We do plan on getting married, possibly next summer. We even plan on getting married on a roller coaster and having the reception at the amusement park! He is everything I could've wanted and more. Our families get along great, and I don't know what other qualities I could have wanted in a partner.

Didn't mean to hijack the thread, but I had to say hi!

Glad to hear you are doing well too, and it was great to see you back!

Love, Ladyace

Hi all!

Please don't anyone feel as if you are "hijacking" my thread - no one is - this is a place of sharing and I'm so happy to hear from all of you.

Ladyace,

I am so very happy for you!!! That is wonderful, and I am so pleased to hear that you have met someon that treats you with the respect you so deserve.

SD - a BMW?!?! Wow - good for you! You know, sometimes we have to realize that we only live this life once, and if we can afford it and not cause others discomfort then sometimes - darn it! We DESERVE it! I am so very proud of you as well - and here is hoping that you will meet someone as wonderful as Ladyace's new man. Even if it is only someone to date for a short time, or a long time - make sense?

Right now, I am traveling with work, and I have "time" to fill - before when I was working and traveling, I was so overwhelmed with work due to a very inefficeint co-worker. NOW, she has been replaced with a new lady who is absolutely AWESOME, and we get along wonderfully. I am learning so very much! I also have some time to read and post here - so I get to "catch up" with some old friends.

As you can see - we have had some wonderfully good news - sadly, mixed in with some bad. I lost my brother and my mom within seven weeks of each other - both fairly suddenly. That is what brought me back, dealing with their deaths. But, as we all know, live does go on.

I hope everyone is well!

Love to all,

Z.

Zinnie...sorry to hear about your brother and your mom. I am glad to hear that many things have brought you happiness of late, though. How is that taco-loving dog of yours?

Glad to see you here again. Take care!

HI Ready,

My taco loving dog? Well, he is same as he ever was! Still his silly little self. I am traveling right now with work, so my husband has sent me some pictures of him today - and boy did they make me laugh! He is the silliest animal I think I have ever owned. We now have three dogs - of course LOUD, the beautiful Miss Pee Wee and now the Nosey Inspector... who is a refugee from the New Orleans shelter. He is a cute little guy, who idolizes the LOUD guy - and like his "older brother" loves tacos (well, actually ANY food) as well.

How are you doing?

Z.

Zinnie,

Doing okay...a year since my divorce was final, and I'm getting used to being a single mom. My ex is continuing with his crazymaking, but for the most part he leaves me alone. Unfortunately, he has directed his anger at our daughter, who doesn't know how to deal with it. So not fair. My son has cut all ties to his dad, and sees him once a month or so, but only on his terms. Spent last week with my baby sister and her baby, which was great. How is your health? I hope you are well, and your little dog(s) too!

Hi Ready,

Well, good for you! Isn't it amazing how once we are "out" of a situation, we can look back at that person and realize that lots of what they do, is indeed "crazy making"?

However, I'm so sorry to hear that your ex is taking his anger out on your daughter. How old is she?

My health? Well... much to the dismay of many, I took on this job which was going to entail me traveling for a year. Then, I was asked to stay on for another year, and I am now traveling not only the US, but the world - and guess what? My health is doing wonderfully! I have to still have blood work run every three to four weeks, and am on "maintenance drugs" anti-cancer meds if you will - but truthfully? This is the best I have felt in years! The work itself is enjoyable, and the best part of it all is not only am I working with one son, but sometimes both of them, and three of my brothers!

Thanks for asking!

Z.

what a wonderful job you have! travelling, and spending time with your sons! Probably better medicine for you than any doctor could have prescribed.

My daughter is 12, and codependent like me. We will work through it.

Glad to hear you are well!
