"One day after work I put on my fleece bathroom on top of a t-shirt and sweatpants and now that's what I wear most evenings.  My robe is very comforting as is my electric blanket. "

"I am sorry not to be able to join you.  I looked again at the map and it's just too far for me.  CrazyWidow, let me know if work brings you to the NW corner of the state.  It would be great to get together!"

Hey Laker - Welcome to Widowed without children.  I do some travel writing, and hopefully this winter will be doing some travel writing to Lake Erie!  I live in Lancaster, PA.  Maybe we could meet up?

Hi Ann, welcome to WidVille - I hope you will feel as at home here as I do ... I've met some really amazing people through this site and feel as though I've known them all my life.  I'm glad you joined the "suddenly widowed" group (I'm in there too because my husband died of a stroke ... and like you I guess the warning signs were there and I missed them - but you know, hindsight is a great gift, but it is a painful gift, because you forget that you didn't have that hindsight WHEN you missed the warning signs.  I went through tremendous guilt until I realized that x
