Aww, sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear that your plans have been shattered and your life turned upside down...right when it was your BIRTHDAY!

I do hope that you are counting on your friends and family to get through this. I wish I had some wise words, but all I can give is a few warm hugs.

"Tanti auguri" to your genitori. Just a few years longer than us (34). It doesn't mean we always agree with each other, but over the long haul it's better to be together than apart. Our children also incentivise us to stay together.

Funny, I was reading an interesting article in The Economist magazine today, with some fascinating conclusions, which made me think about, and sympathise with, some of our fellow diarists who are single-parent families. Bringing up kids is so much more challenging for them:

"Middle-class kids growing up with two biological parents are “socialised for success”. They do better in school, get better jobs and go on to create intact families of their own. Children of single parents or broken families do worse in school, get worse jobs and go on to have children out of wedlock. This makes it more likely that those born near the top or the bottom will stay where they started."

To come back to your question, it also says:

"There is no such thing as a perfectly compatible couple, argues Diane Sollee, director of smartmarriages.com, a pro-marriage group. Every couple has disputes, she says. What matters most is how they resolve them."

End of sermon.

Sunshinecity - So sorry to hear about your wedding. It's been a year since my wife walked out on me, and I've stopped looking for an explanation. Even when you hear one, it won't make sense. But, God made us strong creatures so rely on your friends, protect your heart, find humor and laugh when you can, and soon a new (smarter) man will come into your life.

Oh, and Happy Birthday. ;)

I was all dolled up and everything too!!! ( Not sure why the broody face... I wasn't in a bad mood at all)

I have one book to finish and two more waiting for me... am I ever gonna catch up?

Hey, you men out there... do products catered to women and the women's side of the cabinet ever intrigue you??
This, my friends, is wild strawberry scented body lotion... trust me when I tell you... Good enough to eat!!

What's with the hot pepper? It does not look like a strawberry to me.

No matter, I like hot as much as I like sweet. Hope you have someone to share it with soon and that it does not burn either party.

I had to run an errand for my brother today after work.
I found myself being there a bit early, so I thought I'd take the extra time on my hands and use it to take a few pictures.
Might make for an interesting subject, rather than my usual boring macros... (You know I'm left to last resorting when I start posting macros!!)

I was in the town center or the "centro", as we Italians call it, right behind Piazza Navona, where the famous Fountain of the Four Rivers by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and the Saint Agnes basilica, by Francesco Borromini.

This is a beautiful area of Rome, famous for its Baroque architecture. Many tourists are taken back by the majestic beauty of this piazza and tis surroundings. I will admit, it never ceases to leave me breathless either!
And I was planning on moving to where??!!?? F*ck that!
LOL

BTW, did you know that Rome was pretty much built with cobblestone? Yeah as pretty as it can look, us Romans HATE it... try walking on the with heels or riding your scooter over them...
UGH LOL

I have this thing where I often see funny shapes amongst the clouds... you know when the cloud formations seem to produce an object, or animal? It's a specific physical ability of mine.. I think the medical term is called Imagination...

Anyways, I was at work and I looked up outside the window for a second, and low and behold there it was.... a DOG!!!

I see a dog in the sky

Take a closer look...

Awesome cloud.

Cobblestone is terrible for me to walk on in the dark... Madrid is like that- I lose my balance when it gets dark, and even when sober I walk like a drunk fool on uneven ground like cobblestone plazas.

bunæn PRO Posted 11 years ago. Edited by bunæn (member) 11 years ago
First of all, Good Grief! You're getting so many comments, I have to page back to see what everyone is talking about. What is it coming to, two pages per photo?

Anyway, cobblestones are like some older women, cute from a distance. They have them for a good portion of the road to our home in Mexico. And I remember when a good portion of one of the main highways leading into our town was paved in cobblestone--and this is in California.

dRiViNg oN tHeM wAs LiKe tHiS!

I can see the Scooby-Doo-ness in that cloud, fer sure. I saw one the other day that looked like a little lamby.

I started to get carpal-tunnel from paging back, so I never got to the Italian woman scolding. I'll save my wrist and google it later. A reproachful mexican woman is something to behold. I love it because I like my women the way I like my coffee--bitter.
sunshinecity 11 years ago
LMAO, yeah bitter women make for interesting... yeah for an interesting relationship, let's say LOL
The scolding... I'm not sure where that came from, but it wasn't from a photo. I think it was from me telling Elf off for not having visited sooner!

I think it's my amazing Italianness that attracts the comments., who knows. Maybe we need a survey? LOL

Ahhh, rootbeer. I remember that from a trip to the States a long long time ago. We don't seem to have caught on over here in Europe. (Not that I really drink sodas either... But still.)

Nice graphisme with it, and love the look of the fruity goodness a few days before!
