Hi! I'm Irene. November is a hard month for me because 3 generations of my family died. My grandfather, my father, and my first husband. Last year was the first time that I didn't fall into a deep depression. Thanks to anti-depressants. I'm usually in bed for days being miserable.
It feels like I'm reopening my spiritualality. I started a scrap book to save prayers that I really like. I included pictures of the area where I grew up (El Paso, TX) and also pictures of the hospitals where my kids were born. I'm going to write stuff with it.
I have 3 children ages 22 (his birthday is today - November 5th.) He is also and Iraq Veteran. The 4th generation to serve this country (his a Marine - Semper Fi!) I have one daughter who totally looks like me and has the attitude also. I watched her one time listening to music and she does the same hand motions I do. Tripped me out! My youngest is 17 and so ready to get out of high school. Their father died November 25, 1995. I grieved for 12 years when his death anniversary came up.
I live in Tacoma, WA, but grew up in El Paso, TX. I'm 46 years old (damn!) I stay home now to take care of myself. I have needs, and wants, and dreams. My adventurous side has come out and I'm going with it.
Well, that's about it for now. I figure I'll edit later. Bye!
