"I have heard many say the 2nd year is the hardest so be aware that this is common. Fortunately for me it wasn't. I felt like I had been through all the firsts without him and survived! Not that it isn't hard. It still is even 6 1/2 years…"

"I had a super emotional experience on Monday and I thought I might share it with all of you to see if anyone has had any similar experiences. I was cleaning a spare bedroom that I call the "cowboy room". It has lots of TJ's old stuff…"

"I don't leave the house either when it gets cold.....you know, like in the 50's! I am true desert rat...I love the heat. To me the perfect temperature range is 100 - 110. I do snivel a bit when it get above 110. I won't even put on…"

"That map really puts it all into perspective! I agree that Yellowstone is beautiful but I am partial to the Grand Canyon. I lived up there for 5 years and got to see so much of it!"

"Phoenix, AZ. Hard for me to travel as I have too many animals but would definitely consider it if in the Western US."

Sandy commented on Soaring Spirits's group Born in the 60s
"I like both movie ideas! But for me it is nearly impossible to travel with all the animals I have. Heck, I can't even get away to go to Camp Widow. But, I have been fortunate to have 2 widows that I met on twitter come here to Arizona to visit…"

"Mary H Do you have a trusted male friend or neighbor that could help you in getting quotes for repairs? Maybe one of those people who told you in the beginning that they would help if you needed anything? Now might be the time to call on them. I…"

"Mary H.....I would be miserable if my house was 60! I woke up this morning to 68 in the house and quickly cranked up the heater and crawled back under my electric blanket. But.....I live outside of Phoenix and love the summers."

"Well, weren't you all chatty last night! I go to bed early so read everything when I got up this morning. My husband died over 6 years ago so I no longer get the pity looks nor does anyone ask if I am OK......they just assume that I am. And…"

"I am with you Michele....I too wish I would have had the luxury of waiting before making a decision. Like I said earlier though.....moving was really the best thing I did for me. Bob - brussels sprouts made me cry in the beginning. My husband LOVED…"

"For me I had no choice but to move. I could not afford the house we had on my own. My husband passed October 25, 2009 and I closed on my new home March 10, 2010. It was a whirlwind! I intentionally purchased a repo that needed lots of work. I am…"

"Mary - I am just over 6 years out and I know that I have aged physically and mentally. I am not the same as I was before. It wasn't until recently that I have begun to actually try to reverse some of the physical aging (i.e. the weight gain).…"

"Hi Wendy! You are so early into this journey. My husband died October 2009. Dip your toes into dating when you are ready and not when friends think you might be, and you may never be ready. It is for you to decide. But as far as boundaries go I say…"

Sandy replied to Mary H's discussion Dating Again for those Born in the 60s in the group Born in the 60s
"I agree that we are kind of stuck in the middle. Although, I do find that dating at this age is WAY easier than when I was young. No games and I know what I want and more importantly I know what I don't want. I do enjoy dating but I really…"
