The days of being overworked are gone

45 years ago I was so overworked and harassed, I just didn’t know where my life was going.

I had a baby, I had a daycare in my home, with 5 other babies/children during the day.  In the evenings I would go selling door to door, and also did baby sitting.  I had a husband that was an alcoholic, and didn’t bring any money into the house.  Those days sucked.

This was 11 years of my life, until he died.  It took years, but my life turned around, and now I am retired, living in Florida, and spending time at the beach.




  1. I’m so glad you life is so much more pleasant now. I’m a childminder, but have cut my hours down to only before and after school. You must have been worn out with all that work and having a husband who didn’t help matters 😦

  2. So glad you are seeing more of the sunny side of life. I know how you feel. My husband had addictions that eventually led him to committing suicide. I am stronger from it now, though. I am glad you are, too!
