  2. I find myself hiding many Facebook postings lately.  
  3. I am having a blast growing vegetables on my tiny patio.  At the end of the day, I feel like I am really doing something that matters.  I mean, I know I do anyway, but there really is something to seeing food growing from a tiny seed that you planted!
  4. Time is flying by.  My kids are are nearly adults, now.  Sometimes I miss the kid stuff.

  21. I can never watch Apollo 13, Jaws, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind enough.
  22. I dream of owning a dog.
  23. I need to be nearer to the sea.   It is a living, breathing entity; the waves its breath going in and out.  
  24. I don't miss drinking alcohol.  Not one bit.
  25. I am finished with toxic people.  
  26. I sometimes wish I didn't have to have that hysterectomy.  I sometimes wish I could have another child.
