Merlot, both my husbands were drinkers. So I can certainly relate. After a while you shut down. You go through the motions of a marriage, but not the emotions. My first marriage was 12 long years. Then he died of Alzheimers. My second lasted 14 years and he died of cancer. The alcoholism only hastened his death. Both times (and I hate to say it) I felt releif. Both husbands attended AA. But it didn't stick with either of them. Though they kept trying. I just wish folks would attack drinking like they have smoking. Have you ever heard of anyone having a cigarette and then getting behind the wheel and wiping out a whold family in a crash?

P.S. I dont have any Snickerdoodles for him. I don't do sweets for my home. I give them all away. Would an apple pie do? Although I do have a two pie, pie maker. I will let him loose in the kitchen.
Deal, I'll tell him to pack.

SB, can you move it inside? I have my rowing/recumbent bike machine in front of the TV upstairs, and it makes it so much easier to use, especially during Big Bang or other fave programs.

I would be freezing my butt off in our garage, and your weather is similar to ours!

I just want you to know I am not looking for a husband. Not even someone else's. You will get him back in a hurry as soon as the week is up.

It's not so bad out there it's a small garage attatched to our small ranch home. It's about the only place it will fit. By wintertime it may end up in the middle of the living room though. I usually go to the gym but sometimes it just doesn't work out that way.

I just want three days of the bed all to myself and the bathroom! I'll be missing him by the second day.

LLBean sells petites, this one doesn't drag behind me and the sleeves are not too long. I got the Black Watch plaid, it's very nice. I just hope it's not too hot to sleep in.
Sometimes I have to force my daughter to think. She will see an item of clothing she wants to buy for me. Then she will ask, "Ma, what does the P stand for?" Well, it doesn't stand for wet undies.

Hibernating are we? Have fun.

Alas, I wish I could wear flannel - made myself these wonderful oversize pj's and top for my recovery time after one of my surgeries. Put it on once and that was it - it doesn't breathe and my claustrophobia went bizerk!
