Re: life IS good/family


Well I've known it would be this way all along.  I knew when I was 15 that I didn't want kids.  And after two broken engagements (a blessing in both cases) I realized I prefer being alone.  I bought a small house w/ a managable piece of land and resolved to have all the really heavy work done in my forties.  I'm almost there w/ four years and 5 months to go.  The maintenance is less strenous and will be ok as I get older.  I stay active and have no inclination or desire to change that.  And I do have the family I've chosen which makes all the difference in the world.  So I believe I'm on the right track.  I could be wrong of course, but I hope not.  And hope springs eternal, n'est pas??

:-D
