One thing, for sure, that I wouldn't change in my life is staying home and raising my little girls until they were both in school. I loved having babies, tucking them in at night, singing to them, sewing pretty dresses and Halloween costumes, having birthday and slumber parties...
I also enjoyed being a homemaker...it was my profession, so to speak. I gardened, cooked, canned, made jellies, painted, hung wallpaper, made curtains and slipcovers, did a little plumbing and electrical work, learned how to swing a hammer and put things together....

The other, really important thing I wouldn't change is saying yes to Kim.

My romance with Paul.
He's brought love, friendship, safety, happiness, smiles
and contentment to my life.

Oh yeah! Romance!
I miss the butterflies I used to get in my stomach from a simple kiss.

I know this sounds silly... but after 9 years
I still feel those butterflies. I still get that giddy feeling when
Paul walks in at night. Love is still in the air.

I'm with you, PDS, Lou and I have been together for 7 years now and I still get all sappy from a simple carress.

Cora, when my kids were young, like yours are now, I was too exhausted to feel anything like butterflies. I had the kids, I was going back to work, my husband and I had a home to run. Romance was perfunctory, to say the least. When they got a bit older that was when the fun started again. You'll always cherish these years, and you should. But, hang in there, you won't be pouring milk forever.

can i restart from day 1?

it has all been such a great trip, and it keeps getting better. i've been incredibly lucky, or blessed, or both i guess.

i've always thought that i must have saved a busload of nuns from a terrible accident in a previous life.

even in the darkest despair, there's always a perspective, always a way to look at it and smile and maybe laugh. many of my friends say that that's the irish in me.
