Its such a lovely day but spending it alone is the pits.  Seems harder and harder to connect with friends, not that I have a lot of friends and I am missing my hubby so much.  I try to keep busy, but there are more hours in the day than things to do.  Will be so glad when the snow is gone.  Anyone have any suggestions how to meet people?SandiSee More
