So a friend calls me because his cat has cncer and he needed to borrow $2,000 for the operation. I ...
HippieChick58 comments on Aug 18, 2018:
My heart cat got sick several years ago while I was still married to the father of my children. It was Thanksgiving weekend, my ex's parents were visiting. When we realized the kitty was sick it was late in the day, the inlaws had gone to bed and my 3 teenagers were desperate that we had to do SOMETHING. So kitty went to the Emergency Vet. The inlaws reported to their son in the morning that they thought we (kids and me) were fighting. No, just the clanking of the cat cage on the way to the car. That kitty visit cost around $1000, followed by another $600 to the usual vet. And the ex says "is it worth it?" I said "could you look at your daughters and tell them there is a price on the love we have for this cat, and how much we will spend to make her better? If you can make that decision in front of your kids and justify it with them..." It is hard when your fur babies are sick. How much money is too much? Hard, hard call.

I have visited a few adult entertainment shops in person, but most of my purchasing has been done online. I have a few toys, used mostly solo. I have shared the adventures with a few lucky guys, but it has been a long while. I have had vibes for years, even when I was a "good xian woman." God wants us to be happy. My ex did not make me happy.

HippieChick58 comments on Aug 18, 2018:
When I meet someone I assume we are both free agents until we have a discussion about being exclusive. Until such time as there is an agreement that we are exclusive I don't ask if he is dating and I will not discuss if I am dating. If it is a long distance relationship I really don't discuss if I am dating or very much else. And since I don't really have a dating life it is pretty much a moot point.

My children all had a few rough years, but are amazing adults and we're close now. My middle daughter is going to be my guardian and conservator when I need that. My oldest and youngest have needed me for new mom questions. Even when my challenging child was in her horrible teenage years, even when we fought like cats and dogs, or moms and daughters; she would always take a few moments and tell me she loved me every day. They tell me now they're proud of me for facing life's challenges. And I am proud of the strong women they've become.

HippieChick58 comments on Aug 18, 2018:
I agree. If you are "too nice" people will walk all over you. You have to have boundaries. Use the "When you..., then I ..." model. When you tell me I'm dumb, then I think you're don't care for me." I don't think interpersonal relationships can be free from conflict. BUT the conflict needs to be resolved in a healthy manner. I am really good at identifying the "elephant in the room" and bringing it out into the open. I've been asked more than once if we really have to talk about it, and I always say "oh hell yeah."

I have slept alone so long I'm not sure I'll be able to adjust, but I will give it a good try when the situation presents itself.

Is living together an acceptable alternative to marriage?
HippieChick58 comments on Aug 17, 2018:
First of all, if you are the parent you don't get to just walk away from the kids the law has something to say about that whether or not you're legally married to the other parent. Marriage does not prevent a parent from taking off. My oldest brother is a deadbeat dad. Being legally married did not stop him from disappearing on his wife and 5 kids. The working issues need to be resolved but rarely does any woman stay at home with the kids anymore. Who can afford it? Why shouldn't dad stay home if mom can earn more money and support the family? Property ownership can be done with two individuals not connected by marriage. College for the kids, again something to be discussed before you get them started. There is no real reason to be married in this day and age. I will never remarry, but I'm a long way from considering more kids.

And she runs down the stairs and brings it almost to me, and we repeat. Then when I'm downstairs, she will drop it to the basement herself!
