So great to hear from you!! I have only been to Colorado in the winter and it was a snow paradise but hear so many great things about it in the warmer months! On my list to check out! Hope the move went well. I'm so used to the new format that it doesn't feel new anymore. LOL Once you use It regularly, it's no big deal. (to me, anyway). Yes, my boys are growing up. sniff sniff. But still young enough that I'm driving everywhere and being their 'support' system. They are my joy in life! Come back and visit after you get unpacked!!!
Well, that's exciting! Colorado is beautiful!! Are you going to take up hiking and skiing? :)) I know moving can be stressful so hopefully you'll settle in and get back to feeling 'normal'. anyway, glad the move is over-- I've been wondering where you were! Have a great day!
Hello! I was so glad to see a post from you on the forum! You've been MIA and am glad you are back . . . stick around, okay?! Hope all is well with you and you are STILL the happiest girl in the world!!
You deserve a big bear hug!Love your comments lady!you tell ppl what they need to hear.....just like me!:)
Aww TTinKK, i had a stressful day today, and was a little bit down for a bit, so it made my day to have read the note you left. I too really appreciate your work here and I pray that out time does help. It feels really good when someones tells you that it does , once in a while , that's for sure.. It truly is a labour of love. Thanks again TTinKK. xo Liz
HI there. I believe I have seen awesome posts from you where you list all of the negative effects of alcohol on the body...a much more detailed list than I have seen elsewhere. If so, do you mind sending it to me via PM or posting it on a journal so I can copy and paste it? Thanks so much!
You deserve a big bear hug!You so very welcome!I consider myself fortunate to have your contributions in the forum!i know you give a lot of ppl MUCH food 4 thought!
TtinkK I am such a fan of yours, when i see your name i can trust that the message is dead on what needs to be heard. Thanks so much for your note. It means so much to me coming from you. xoxoxo Liz
Thanks for a great answer! Maxy Pamela
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I just wanted to tell you that this just breaks my Heart. I have lost many, but many years ago I lost my lil brother..Someone came up to me after a couple of weeks and told me I should be over it!! WTF..You never get over it..A piece of your Heart is missing forever..It may ease up a bit but it will always be here. Just hold onto the Good Memories..I am worried about his daughter. She might have to reach out for some professional help because I fear she will see this over & over in her mind..OMG I am truly SORRY..I send my Heart filled Prayers out to You & All the Family..
Bless & my the Lord Hold you all tight right now..Tears!!!!
Hi TtinkK, i saw your post on the relationship thread. So true. We do see things eye to eye don't we? Great to hear from you. Hope you're having a great day~ I am finally getting ceilings put in in our basement shangrala and don't have to hear the white noise from the guys upstairs. Life is good, I'm in heaven. I hope this note finds you well, my friend. Liz (big hugs) xo
Just a quick note to say hi!

You are in my thoughts and prayers as the new year begins.Wishing you and your family a happpy, proseprous ,peaceful and content new year.
Happy Holidays, I hope this note find you well!!!!
Merry Christmas!! Happy New Year!!!
I'm not really sure what incited you or the other people that responded negatively to my posts. I was looking for some specific responses to questions that might have factored into keeping me alive, and seemed targeted because I refused to be weak. Well, I've quit, no thanks to the group.
The time to consider your responses is before you send them, not after. I'm not sure what the purpose of this group even is at this point... but the perspective on those coming here to "seek help" should be reconsidered. It is not at all inviting, sincere, helpful or nurturing, and I can see people dying from this type of "support".
I hope you are doing very well.
I am good!!! And my mission is in progress(now it is in its initial stage.....but I am positive I will achieve it); :).
Take Care,God bless you!!!
Hope you have a great day, and thanks for being so sweet.
Same here. Keep smiling darling.
Hello darling! I pray your day was lovely and if it wasn't I'm sure you'll have a better one tomorrow :)))
LOL! Thanks. She would like that even though she can be a little meanie sometimes but she's wonderful, you'd love her and I'm sure she would do the same.
Thanks so much, I look forward to yours as well, like I said "great insight" and I have been getting in enough trouble and get involved with the wrong ppl for a long time so I know stuff LOL
Tink-you are welcome and I am so glad you have a good marriage now. I consider myself successfully married too! My husband and I have worked through problems and always listened to one another.
John Gottman has done amazing work and research on marriage over the last few decades and has identified four key problems that lead to divorce... he calls them the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. These four issues include: criticism, defensiveness, contempt and stonewalling. Contempt for a partner being the most crucial indicator of divorce.
Here is one really good book by Gottman: The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work: A Practical Guide from the Country's Foremost Relationship Expert

Well, thank you lady for joining the Divorce and Break up forum!
A big WELCOME to you.
Thank you, ma'am. We are all doing well. Our oldest graduates high school this Friday so we have family showing up. Ought to be a lot of fun. Dee Dee and I are doing well, real well in fact. She is now seeing the therapist that helped me see the light and is gaining all kinds of valuable insight.
Thanks for pulling for us. It means a lot!
Oh, I'm still going on about me, ha ha. Yesterday I gardened for a huge chunk of time. Don't know if it really counts as a true work out but I am sore as all get out today!
Oh, so fun to spend time with your daughter and granddaughters! Sounds like a perfect weekend. Wow, I'm impressed with your work outs! I was for many years a work out maniac myself . . . it was my 'thing'. I had a rocky first pregnancy and things kind of ground to a halt. I try to fit things in but not like I used to and when I try to do some of my old activities, I have to really remind myself that I am not in great shape because I get totally carried away. I try to do it like I used to and pull a hammie! I look forward to adding more and more though. I do love to swim and do a good deal of that. And we do all kinds of things as a family--- bike ride, backyard soccer games, etc. Fun
How are you doing? You say you are a fitness freak . . . what is your favorite thing to do fitness wise??
anyway, hope you are having a good weekend.
Thank you for everything! Thankyou so much for what you said and this is so true...and I must say....what you said is right...and I must say I loved my life as his wife and sometimes I walk around lost...it is strange...I dont want him back but I think it would be nice if he wanted to come back then I wouldnt feel so much like the rubbish he threw out with out a second thought....
Just a quick note to say hi!
Wow, you had to shave your whole head? I would have too.. (my BF told me I should and I said.. "OK, only if you're willing to buy me a few EXPENSIVE wigs") I didn't realize how fast my hair grew until I had this small section of hair shaved.. WOW it grows really fast.. It almost covers my incision.. I have super thick hair... I need my texturizing shears to take away some of the bulk. I told my BF about you (hope you don't mind.. I just told him what you had to go through) and he was super glad to hear that you are well now. Your story truly is very inspirational! I do hope you are doing very well!! PM me to chat anytime!
Thank you! I really appreciate your kind words! I am ok, still recovering from brain surgery :) hope all is well with you as well. Have a wonderful day/evening
Ps I enjoy reading your opinions/advice as well. I must say that I agree with everything you say.
