    I think I need to get out....

    I think I need to leave this week; my husband just showed me how unstable he is, and I think this might escalate. I posted last week about what happened then; well, things have been alright this week. He was sad Monday, Tuesday better, and seemed fine by the end of the week. Last night when I...

    What just happened?

    I feel like I'm going crazy tonight (and I apologize, this is going to be a looong post). My husband and I have been married for six and half years, the first five of which were pure hell. He was suffering from depression and a series of bad jobs; during this time he was *very* controlling; he...

    Clothing problem

    I suppose this is a good problem to have, but NONE of my work clothes fit! I was getting ready for work last week, and my pants were hanging around mid-hip. I tried a belt, but they look baggy everywhere, and I can't wear them. The problem is I can't afford to replace my suits, and I've got...

    Shoe Inserts

    I ordered a gorgeous pair of black heels, and they just arrived today. They were comfortable for all of 5 minutes before the balls of my feet started to ache. I've got some Dr. Scholl's inserts in them now, but they aren't cushy enough to offset a 3 inch heel-- any suggestions for other...

    Stepmother issues....

    Warning: this is a bit of a vent! I'm not certain what has come over my stepmother recently. Lately, it seems like she has been going out of her way to start fights and create problems. Case in point, Christmas! My sister and I started trying to figure out Christmas plans in early...

    Punching bag?

    Does anyone use a full-size punching bag? Any tricks to it or things to watch out for (like breaking my wrist!). I'm under incredible stress these days, and I need a stress-buster. Especially one I can tape pictures on }( TIA

    Anyone from Boone, NC?

    I will be relocating there in June, and I'm having a hard time finding an apartment (not a lot of interet sites to look at). I will be able to go down in April, but other than that, my time is tight. I'll only have a few days to look, so I'd like to narrow my list down as much as possible. Any...

    Weight Loss

    I bought a new scale recently (after tossing my old into the trash this summer), and was amazed to see how much weight I have lost since Christmas: 13 pounds! I knew my clothes were fitting better and I've had to replace some of my pants because they are too big, but I'm surprised at this loss...

    My interview in Philadelphia went very well-- thank you all for your helpful advice about the city. I'm really glad I didn't try driving downtown. The traffic was bumper to bumper, and the streets were confusing! The cab driver dropped me off at my interview with no problems. They called...

    Do you blog?

    I'm curious as to how many people here blog. I contacted an old friend recently, and he sent me a link to his blog. I've run into them before, but his was really neat-- lots of music, his artwork, not too much personal information. I'm thinking about trying one myself..... For those of you who...

    Marriage update

    Update since last post. I decided to make an appointment last week with a marriage counselor and made the mistake of telling my husband. I was very careful not to be confrontational and said there were some things I needed to work on and wasn't happy about, and wanted to fix before they got out...

    Marriage question-- long

    I need some advice. I have been married for 4.5 years, and over the last few months, have found myself thinking about leaving. We don't fight or anything, and he's not abusive. But, there isn't any...emotion in our marriage. I'm not sure how to describe it, but it's like living with a...
