My husband died on Aug 28, unexpectedly..I have a grief counselor- her husband passed away at 47 years of marriage too and so, she traveled this path. I do have a grief group, 4 widows 1 widower.…Continue
I got my little calico cat, Mika, from the SPCA in June. She is 5 years old and a delight. She was in the SPCA for 7 weeks and after several visits I decided to take her home. I am sure she was waiting for me, she is just so affectionate and loving. Barbee, I have lots of squirrels in my garden and she loves to chase them (don't think she would know what to do if she actually caught one).
Pets, yes! I rescued a cat in July. She's "about 3-5 years old" and was very well trained by her previous family. She's super curious about everything and has to investigate every little noise. She purrs so loud, it is surprising the neighbors don't hear her. We have a herd of deer who come into the yard (sometimes up to 16 of them) and she runs from window to window watching them. Getting her was one of the better things I've done for myself in recent years.
Barzan you are so right pets are a blessing. I rescued a dog a few months after Jim passed and as the saying goes "I didn't rescue her she rescued me" and it is so true. She is such a great companion. Always there no matter if it is a good day or a bad day. I can laugh and I can cry she remains the same. And never tells me that I need to move forward or get on with my life. So between work, kids , grandkids, netflix, this website and my beautiful dog my mind stays busy and I exist. Thanks for being here.
Faolan and Barbee - I'm with you. I try to watch mostly comedic or romcoms for the same reason. I need to keep my mood boosted with laughter and happy endings. There is so much drama and horrific things happening around us that we need all the buffers we can find.
Thankfully, I have my kitty, Milo, who also provided lots of entertainment with his antics. Pets are great healers.
Have a blessed day.
We got the first month free on Netflix and then it is $9.95 a month. When we go to the theater, the senior rate is $10.50 per person. A BIG difference.
As to what to watch, I prefer romantic comedies partly because they are so predictable and light-hearted. If there isn't something to laugh about, it hardly is worth the effort! Laughter is an essential part of my day! Of course, there are plenty of biographies, dramas, mysteries, and serious topics to view, but laughing helps keep me sane. Long live I LOVE LUCY re-runs!!!!!!!!!
Must check out Netflix, there are very few programs on TV that I enjoy these days and the news is so depressing, I don't watch it anymore.
