Thinking of Going to a Happier Place....

Anybody wanna come with me?

You Are Aphrodite!

A total shining star with a ton of admirers

And no wonder: you live life to the fullest!

When things get bad, you can easily take off to a happier place

But occasionally, you need to deal with problems head on

Hump Day Quiz


You Are a Realist

You don't see the glass as half empty or half full. You see what's exactly in the glass.

You never try to make a bad situation seem better than it is...

But you also never sabotage any good things you have going on.

You are brutally honest in your assessments of situations - and this always seems to help you cope.

And spot on for me. You?

Snippets from the sea....
And when I say snippets, I mean little bits of information that come every few days.
We are operating on a need-to-know basis apparently. I need to know. And The Bird is doing her best to appease her mama.

Sigh. This empty nest business is a lot of work.

The Best I Could Find...

aquarius.html.pngWhat occurs now makes you more aware of what you need, feel, and want in your relationships. If you are unhappy in your personal life, this is brought out now, and you'll need to face what is causing your dissatisfaction. Differences in personal style, tastes, and ways of expressing affection may emerge. You also feel amorous and loving and, if your personal life is going well, this is a time to really enjoy and appreciate it.

It's a good thing I have a job to go to....

The bane of the only boy-child: having to "chat" with mom:
Unless, of course, he needs to do something with his car...

He really is the best boy ever. And we both miss The Bird, who reports that the flowers in Croatia are unbelievably beautiful. Ah, the vicarious trip.....

The Bird is reporting in from Naples. Not too impressed, but what a difference a day makes:
And we have her brother. Her chatty brother. Not.
And mama? Just plugging along.
