      My name is Tuesday Larken and I am Fab40s newest "expert."  I am not exactly an expert on middle age, family, life, love, loss or anything really. I can't tell you how to fix any of these things because, like you, I have been too busy living through them. Think of me more as a case study that is still in progress.  I will soon be sharing my journals here every week.  

      My job is to encourage the women here to participate more, and to draw new members Fab40 by focusing my stories on all our experiences and relationships. Because my diary is by definition a work of fiction, it can represent all of us. My life, my friends and other characters will be based on all of you.  

      Before I start my job, I would like to know what you think my life should be about. Should I be married or divorced?  Kids, no kids?  I can't b everything to everyone but the other characters can help me cover a lot of ground, so fire away! I want you each to see something of yourself in me or someone I will meet and write about.  

      Like my tagline says... it is to be "one woman's journal, every woman's journey."  Will you help us plan the route?

        • Great to meet you Tuesday!happy

          I love this concept!  The husband should also be very handy around the home and be able to communicate his needs and wants to his wife in a caring, gentle way and therefore maintaining a happy home.  The son could be an older teen or young man and trying to find his place in the world, not sure which avenue to pursue.

          This is going to be awesome!estatic

        • I think you should be married with no kids. Your husband should be a caring man who wants to spend lots of time with his wife but yet we each have our own “ME” time. He goes on 3 day fishing trips, I stay home and enjoy the quiet with my pets and just do what I want.happy Oh and there’s a catch, we both sleep in seperate rooms but we like it that way.happy

        • Hmmmmmm...sounds to me as if we are creating the perfect mate. And I have to say - I don’t necessarily believe in that (at least right now!)  He needs to have some flaws to make this realistic. He watches porn in the basement?  No, too creepy.  He overspends? He is texting his ex-girlfriend too often for your liking? Also, what do you think of making this your second marriage, so we can deal with some real-life issues with your fictional ex-husband?

        • Well my story isn’t so perfect. It shows we sleep in seperate rooms. A perfect situation would be that we sleep in the same room and cuddle everynight...lol

        • You‘re divorced, single with kids.  Work would be better if the evil, unsupportive, and incompetent boss disappears and the exceptional one steps in.

          You want to believe that there’s someone out there for you.

        • I think being on the second hubby is a good idea.  And sleeping in seperate rooms?  Hey, that happens in way more homes than you would think!

          Hubby owns a cafe?  Nope, if you‘re in the food business, you‘re married to it.  That cafe is not something you own, it’s your mistress.  Which is a great way to create conflict in a marriage!

          You need to have his and hers and possibly their kids.  Five? Six?

          Or maybe you ought to have someone in the family with a severe disablilty, in a wheelchair perhaps?  Struggling with addiction? Severe depression?

          Just my take on life.

        • I was hoping for more votes on no kids either. Not everyone has kids. But hope you come up with something good.

          Oh and the seperate room thing, I know a few couples who do that and yet they still get along great. It’s just something that happens or there’s other reasons for it. happy

        • Tuesday, we do the seperate room thing too and it works well for us most of the time.  Complicates life when we have company...

        • Same here, we do get along better. We use to fight over the covers and I was a night person while he had to be in bed early for work early mornings and then his smoking got to me so out I went.

        • Mine wouldn’t like separate bedrooms either but sometimes he resorts to the sofa because he can’t sleep and doesn’t want to disturb me.  When our children move out when ever that will be...if ever...I’ll have those rooms set up as a guest room and one of our extra bedrooms.  

          Why not let them still have kids but let the kids be grown and out of the house....empty nest syndrome so to speak...
