 Hi, I'm Linda/lcat and what is keeping me going is my boyfriend is coming home from a vacation and I want the house to look supper clean.  I've worked hard for 12 days.  I've cleaned the bath from walls to ever thing you can clean.  Scrubb the walls in the hallway.  Scrubbed the kitchen and every applicance.  Did the floors.  Waxed my hardwood floors and polished the kitchen floors.  Every evening about 6, I'm dead.  My body thinks it is going to die.

But during the day, I work for a while and them come to the comp.  I'm now waiting for the wax to dry.  After this I will go and try and do some kind of work on the bedroom, for a short time.  Oh, I forgot...I did his carpets in his car.  This car was his work car and he works in the steel mills....so you can imagine how dirty the carpets were.  To my surprise, what the store said would work,,,did work.  The carpets with hard work came clean.  This is the last day I have.  He is coming home tomorrow.  So, wish me luck.

Wow Linda...that's a lot of work!! lol 

Today I'm not up to much, and I'm feeling pretty good, but my anxiety is getting the better of me at times. I've been pretty worried about financial issues and all since our baby will be here in 6 months or less and my husband seems to be blowing it off...ugh! Hopefully things will start looking better soon and I can relax a bit haha.

Hi All, Sat my BF came home and was teasing he was leaving in two days, so I could get more done.  He was very impressed about the house.

I was, too.  I was so tired by the time Sat. got here, a fly could of knocked me over.  All I did on Sat. morning was shop and finish folding towels, shower and wait for him.

The house was all ready, and my floors look wonderful.  I was ready for a break, so it is Sunday and I'm taking it easy, sort of.  I'm cleaning my room, some but no killing myself.

Hope all of you have a mine weekend and enjoy yourself's.

HI im Rhoda but allot of people call me rho.  So far so good today but I have been up only for 2 hours.  I'm going to go tanning sometime today I think after my daughter gets off work so she can go with me.  What is keeping me together is I am texting back in forth with my niece about her graduation on Thursday.

Have a great day

I don't think you're weird. I have dreams of my uncle a lot...he's always telling me that he's there for me. He died when I was 9...he was the only person that would protect me since my mom was a drunk and her boyfriend was abusive towards my sister and I. When he died, I took it very hard and felt so responsible for it for many many years. I too suffer from PTSD, Bi-polar disorder, depression, and anxiety, and I do have a few OCD tendencies.

Men! lol I've still got about 6 months to go, but I can't even afford my dr visits...I have state insurance, but my dr charges for urine tests($11) and then $40 for U/S's and he wants me to get one done every 3 weeks starting on the 17th.
