Hello Friends,

Chastise me if you will, but you are still near and dear to me despite my abrupt and lengthy absence...  Life left me little option given that time was no longer on my side.  Earning a living for the first time in many years, required all my energy and determination.  It was a battle to stay afloat and I've survived to tell the tale.  

During the nearly two years of my departing from A/U, significant changes have bombarded me.  Mostly better than not, but all change takes adjusting especially being older and not always wiser....  I moved to a new home out in the countryside not far from the town of Ithaca, NY.  Mountains, green pastures, farms, chickens, sheep, goats, horses, and many dogs & cats surround me.  For a suburban gal this is a new adventure.  A dear friend of mine shares my home and expenses.  Surprisingly, this arrangement has worked out much better than I expected, we seem to compliment each other quite nicely with only minor bickering now and then.  My daughter moved in with her boyfriend just over a year ago and has been holding her own.  Much, much better arrangement for both of us.  Grown children need to challenge themselves and their parents need a reprieve.  (Although the worry never seems to lessen.)  Living on the edge financially is always filled with fear, but so far my health has held up after a life saving surgery a couple of years ago.  Hopefully I'll be able to push through for quite some time yet.  

Now that I'm able to catch my breath now and then, I would like to rejoin the conversation here on A/U.  Look forward to meeting new friends and catching up with old.

Good to hear from you, Sydni, and as always you have a great image to share.  Websites are not important, your life, health and family are always of primary concern.  

Sweet of you Doone, we're buddies always!

Good to hear you have been keeping well, you sure shall meet many new people and welcome back to AU.

Nice to meet you Onyango and thanks for the good wishes.

Nice to meet you too Sydni and most welcome

Sydni, you've been sorely missed. Sounds like you're in a good place, I'm very happy for you. =)

Wouldn't jump to that conclusion Neal, but happy to hear from you!!!  Certainly have a  new perspective on how to survive with not so much and the devastating effect that the bleak economy has had on the middle class and working poor.  

I'm now an entrepreneur!  Have a full time housecleaning business going and have been able to provide work for others for a decent wage.   I find the work and just give them the jobs as they become available.  No benefits of course in this line of work so that's a serious issue.  Even being laid up with a bad cold is a loss of wages and going to a doctor is out of the question without insurance....  

(Here I go again, I'm on my 'soap-box' preaching about all the inequity and injustice.)

But glad to be back with you <3

Health care is a necessity, not a privilege. It is as simple as that. 

really, really glad to see you here...

Kisses and hugs baby.

Glad to hear that you're doing well,, and, happy to see you back. :)
