At the End of My Rope

I'm at the end of my rope! My dad used to say that all the time. So much that it lost its meaning over time even if he had good reason to be hanging on to that rope's end. Now I am at the end of the my rope. Nothing has happened to put me there, just life. I'm tired, so tired. Midlife Crisis?

I used a lot more words before those words were spoken, such as I'm tired

I Did Pretty Good

Not too long ago I was talking to my ex husband's wife, my son's step mom. This is not a rip on the new wife post so don't get all I hate my ex husband's new wife on me. I like this woman. If I was going to be replaced by anyone I couldn't think of a better person to replace me. Of course, she
