    @MsMelodyBee:  *HUGS*  Come vent on here 😉  It’s some of the best therapy ever.  As for your mom, she sounds batshit crazy.  Why any parent would ever want their child to suffer is beyond me.  As for something to occupy your time, I think it depends on what you’re into, for example, I like crafting or trying new recipes.  Have you considred moving?  It just sounds like you’re unhappy where you’re at, but hopefully that changes for you soon.

    @MsMelodyBee:  You poor thing! I voted for re-arranging the bookshelf because I enjoy doing such things. Of course, I’d also re-arrange the DVD’s in the house alphabetically, just to throw off my SO, who thinks they are currently arranged by genre. 

    Sounds like you need a new hobby. Have you thought about taking up cross-stitch or possibly something online, like a book club? I don’t know if you are into either of those things, but that’s what I do when I get bored. I don’t live out in the boonies right now, but I have, and I know how utterly boring it can get. Cross-stitch is far more active than it seems with all the counting and keeping track of things. And..well reading is just fun. 

    I dont’ really have any other awesome suggestions, but I hope you find something to do to entertain yourself!

    @MsMelodyBee:  …were we seperated at birth? I believe we have the same mother.

    My mom always asks about my shithead ex I broke up with 2+ years ago…and it started when my current BF made it clear (nicely) he’s not going to kiss her ass…or text her…or call her everyday…or take her out to dinner weekly. Crazy shit no sane mother would expect from her daughters guy. Or anyone, actually.

    Basically, my mother thinks she is Paris Hilton.

    @MsMelodyBee:  Yup, ’88 🙂 My mother is also a “domestic engineer”, except she doesnt care for cleaning…or cooking. Just buying over-priced designer bags. She isnt’s so great on hair and makeup, but does spend a good part of the week pestering the nice folks at my plastic surgeons office :-p Hopefully they don’t start botching my face to make up for the inconvenience of putting up with her antics!

    @MsMelodyBee:  We don’t live together. My DVD’s are arranged by genre. He’s got 40 bazillion (exaggeration) DVD’s and I have yet to figure out how they are arranged. I think he just got sick of attempting to arrange them and he put them all on his bookshelves. At the moment, he’s busy collecting more cigars than any person should ever own and crowding out book and movies to make room for the humidors.

    Oooo woodworking! You should take some tools outside and find a branch and whittle! That sounds like great fun. I took pottery once and I LOVED it. 

    I get the book thing. I tend to stick to certain authors though, and I’m way less disappointed. I don’t know what you tend to read, but if you like novels about the future/romance/cop stuff, you should try JD Robb. It’s a dang good mix, and I adore the books. Also, JR Ward for her Black Dagger Brotherhood series. 

    OK, I’m going to go now, before I give you my entire book collection. -hugs-

    Are you sure there are no like minded people in your area? I live an hour away from the nearest town, so I know what living in a small country town is like, but I’ve made one really good friend from here and I got along really well with another woman who lived out here until she moved away. I’m sure there must be someone in your area that you share common interests with. There seems to be a fair few ‘social group’ type things here too, snooker or dart competitions (not really my thing at all, but maybe there’s something similar you enjoy).

    I mostly fill my time with horse riding, reading, studying, crafting (DIY projects for the wedding keep me super busy) and watching movies. I think the trick is to find activities you enjoy that you can do alone.

    Another idea might be to buy a wifi stick/modem so you can visit family and still do your course. They’re pretty reasonably priced if you shop around, I get 16GB for $40 a month, or you could get a prepaid one.

    Alternately, puppies are pretty good company 😉

    Also, I’m really sorry about your mum. She sounds horrible.

    If you are a dog person, it sounds like this would be a perfect time to maybe adopt a puppy? It sounds like you are home alot and live in the country so plenty of space to train/walk/exercise!! Or adopt a dog from a shelter!

    How about scrapbooking? I know that I always have a ton of picutres that I am meaning to put into a scrapbook or even an album, but I never get around to doing it.

    Hard-core spring cleaning?

    Maybe you could take up running? or opposite end of the spectrum – cooking and baking? I bet your busy fiance would appreciate some great homemade meals!

    Come do my laundry, and we can have coffee. I’m an ’88 girl who likes to cross stitch too!

    And I’m lonely too. My phone just went off, and I was so excited. Yeah, it’s my alarm. Not cool
