I have never had an alcoholic drink. I didn't want my children to ever see me drunk. And as a teenager, we didn't drink in those days. We were law abiding. By the time the last ones left home, I lost any interest I ever might have had. I have outlived two husbands and never had any interest in training another one. Too much work.

I love this thread. Nearly every post in "what are you doing" brings a different activity and takes us off in a new direction. Happy digression with no guilt or scolding for being off-topic. I also love its cousin, "stray thoughts," a marvelous mix of ideas and opinions. A great way to keep the ol' brain awake.

Getting ready to go to work to put out a small catering for 50 people. Then off to visit my aunt in the hospital for an infected knee replacement, hope to get home by 3:00 to get some catering quotes done for a wedding & a bridal shower.

I would have loved to visit anyone in Calgary when I had kids and never would have missed them. I went away once for a weekend for a wedding and never thought of them at all. Their father was quite capable of taking care of them. I thought I was in heaven.

Trying to wake up...a bit late for me, but the furry one picked on Shrek this morning instead of me.

Currently ignoring the cats pestering for attention to be a brat. He woke me by wacking me in the face with his paws and I figure if he can snub me when he's annoyed with me I can do the same to him. I'll cave and pay attention to him in a moment.
