I can relate to that. 2 days ago, I got a bill in the mail for $3000, then I needed to go to the store but could not get a ride.

Then I got a ride and managed to put together a meal to cook. Just as I was about to make it, husband called and said he would be at work all night, so everything was wasted.

That same day, my boss called and said my hours would be getting cut due to the slow season. And I just overall had a bad day and broke down and cried.

Now I feel stupid because nothing that happened that day is really that bad. And the next day, everything turned around and I had a great day.

Infact, I called the collection agency for the $3000 bill and plead my case and got it reduced to nothing!!

Bottom line is that weight builds up on your shoulders sometimes and you must cry or vent or sleep to get it off.

DS, sorry to hear about your glasses, I understand. I broke mine last year. From your posts you sound like a great guy, so don't let that woman get you down. Auntdot is right. Just start doing the things that you enjoy doing, then you will be more likely to meet someone that has the same interests as you. Good Luck.

SC :)

sush,
be grateful you have and know how to use a computer. many people don't. be grateful you have glasses to see, there's lots of bilnd folks out there that would give anything to worry about the cost of glasses. be grateful you have cats to love, and love you back. it is a special and unique bond that only you and your cats share, no one else. and be grateful you have us, because we think you are cool, and look forward to "seeing" you here everyday...

Sushi, you are by all reports, one "H" of a cook!

Many women are not (please don't start on me here!) and there will be a lady that will literally kill for your talents, and maybe, or maybe not, share some of your tastes, if you can just have faith in yourself that it will all come around for you, if you just stay "up" and honest...

Try spending a Saturday morning shopping for a really good supper on Sunday...and doing the "prep" work...

Saturday night, figure out the "phasing" the 'morrow will cause, and how to get around any unexpected issues...

And shine those shoes like you had a million dollar deal to negotiate on Monday, pick out a tie, press that shirt, and wipe down that suit...

Take two Advils and go to Church in the morning...

Invite that underpaid Pastor and his wife, and the best looking lady with no wedding ring for dinner with you, as you are "up" for a "gourmet" experience...

You will feel one "heck" of a lot better, be "recovering" from what little "ails" you, likely have one "heck" of a good time doing this, establish a good relationship with your church, and get a really good pattern for going on with life, a lot more happily than you seem...

Its all about "positives"...

PM me if you like, I'll do whatever I can to help...

DS,
Don't make me take you out to the woodshed! I'd hate to tan your fanny!
