Three words to describe your social life?

Boring, stagnant and lonely.

(I think I spent all of my energy, for a long time, raising my son. Now that he is off on his own a lot more, I am finding myself a bit too isolated.)

    Single parent since my daughter was 6 years old, my husband died in a car accident. Alone by choice. Have a small group of trusted friends.

    Life circumstances, sometimes teaches one from an early age to be self sufficient. My younger brother died when I was 10 yrs old, my mother passed away just after I turned 13 yrs old and my older sister married just before our mother died.

    At thirteen none of the relatives really wanted to finish raising a teenager. They talk about where I should live after my mother's funeral service. All 15 aunts and uncles had an excuse why they could not help raise me. I was furious, I jumped up at said "I don't want to live with any of you, I want to stay with my dad!" Well, I guess you know best, one uncle said and all the others nodded in agreement.

    My dad put his arms around me and whispered to me "I am so proud of you today!" Dad wasn't home very often always at a bar but he always came home after it closed and he went to work before I was up. So you see I learned to survive alone, at a very early age.

    My dad passed away a the age of 60, one year before my husband, died. Risks a plenty I have encountered and what a wonderful life I have had thus far by trusting myself!

    Being alone, is not so bad, actually in some ways it is rather selfish but I love spoiling myself, my daughter, grandaughter and I cherish my few close friends!
