    I have missed you crazy Annie. How are your daughters? And work? And the two litre bottle of coke? And see, I just woke to pee now. Lol.
    Some things never change, eh?
    Love you…

    1. Ahh ! The plight of the overactive bladder ! Cursed thing !
      Nice to hear from you. I am struggling to survive but I have some ideas to make some changes that make me feel more FReeeeeEEEEE! WEEEeeeEEE! Once the tax refund comes I will be able to breath a little and have enough to start working on the ideas I have to work for myself.
      I hate working for other people. I hate living with people that suppress me.
      I feel suppressed at work and at my house and that is why I have been spiraling down into this depression. But I am going to work on the business ideas first. Then I will have ground to stand on to make other changes.
      I hope you are doing well.
      Much love,
      Annie

        I know how you feel as per the suppressing. It is not easy but I know you’ll tough it out. I wish you all the best this period… you are not alone…
        Love…
