  1. Hello, Deva! Hello, buffettphan! I'm still around. These days I mostly lurk but I stop by once or twice a week to see what's happening. I keep thinking I'll get back to being a more regular participant, but then life gets in the way. I have to admit when the old recipe thread resurfaced recently it brought back a lot of good memories! Anyway, I saw my name and had to respond.
  2. Hello, R.S. Martin. This is interesting to me. I would also have difficulty destroying a book of almost any type. (Well, I did destroy one that I found in my father's belongings that was extremely racist and violent.) When I deconverted, I kept a few bibles and other religious books that had some meaning to me outside of the content. However, the majority of the bibles and religious books that I owned went straight to the second hand bookstore. I never really considered the fact that they might help indoctrinate someone else. I just dumped them along with all of the other used books tha
  3. Nice going! It sounds as if you really handled this well. I think under the circumstances, I would have had difficulty not jumping up and down with excitement! I'm really happy that you were able to have this intimate discussion.
  4. Hey, Margee!!!! I'm going to try to hang out more just for you!!! This thread made me laugh out loud today! I love the pictures and yes, the upside down one made me stand on my head too! What a beautiful group of people... in so many ways...
  5. Btw, Margee, I think florduh sounds like a guy. Of course, my voice is pretty squeaky so everyone has a low voice compared to mine!
  6. I don't get around here very much anymore so I'm not very well known, but I'll share a current picture.
  7. "Atheism helps you deal with and accept reality..." Blood, I couldn't agree more! Margee, I know how much you went through with your mother-in-law and how difficult it was for you when she died. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement and support! (And thank you for that adorable cat picture!!!) Honestly, I do take time to do things with friends and I take time that I need for myself. I know that I have to have balance in my life or I won't be able to be there for my mom when she needs me. Once I move her to the memory care unit life should be much simpler as she will be a lot c
  8. Thanks, buffettphan! It feels good to be here. All those little memories of being with her and feeding the turtles and enjoying the things she says are things you'll never forget, and things that your sibling who isn't there to help will never have. You'll have lots of sweet memories, and bittersweet memories, and some really sad memories, but you'll never regret having spent that time with your mom. I know it's also exhausting, both mentally and physically, but in the end, it's worth it. This. This is why I do it. Thank you, amateur.
  9. Thanks for your kind responses, bdp and amateur! My heart goes out to both of you. Unfortunately, bdp there is no way to really prepare for or fully understand the impact of "elder care" until you are actually dealing with it. I had no idea how all consuming it would be. And, amateur I am sorry to hear that you have had to deal with the death of both of your parents. Some people seem sad to think that there is no after life and no hope of seeing a family member again some day. But for me I felt nothing but peace knowing that my dad was no longer suffering and that I did not have to feel
  10. It's been a long time since I stopped by to visit on Ex-C. I swing through and read a few posts now and again but I rarely post any more. I can't say exactly when or why it became so difficult to find the time but somehow it has. I've spent a lot of time over the last year and a half dealing with family issues. In fact, caring for my mom and dad took over a huge portion of my life starting in March of 2014 when I noticed they were starting to have difficulty managing their own affairs. Up until that point, I visited with them almost every weekend and I usually brought in lunch while I
  11. Congratulations, Ro-Bear! Hopefully the youngsters will heed your advice. :-)
  12. I miss you guys! (Said in a gender neutral way.) And, now.... back to work!!!
