    I like that flavor! Leave me alone!

    It's not so much the spicy that gets me. It's the entrance of toxins into my stomach and the inevitable consequences. Especially the BDubs I went to in Cincinnati....I don't think they washed their hands.

    But like a moron, I kept going back....

    But I believe you are where you want to be right now......happy for you.

    You got that last part right- I'm happy for ME.

Lucky for me, they were only 2 and 4 when the ex and I seperated, so they really don't know mommy and daddy "together". All they see is mommy "happy"(and even that is debatable) with their step dad and they see daddy happy with Julianne(who they ADORE) and it's helped my relationship with my children so so much.

    Buffalo Wild Wings

    Yeah, it always ended up the same. But I kept doing it.

    Probably not what you're talking about, but for some reason that was the first thing that popped into my mind.

    Oo.... I can see how that'd make you not want to come back... yet lure you back to the table anyhow.

    Mine would be getting into a relationship that ends up the same as past relationships. I always try and learn from any mistakes made from the past and...I dunno, thats pretty much it.

    PS: I LOVE to drive fast on freeways

    Not There Again......No Way!!!!

    Have you ever ended up back in a situation, relationship, place or whatever that you swore you would never, ever return to? To me it's one of the most frustrating things in life.

    Some examples......I swore I'd never get back into a position that was primarily finance related, and sure enough, it happened. It was not translated to me very well by the leader of that group and because organizational changes were being made, I had limited choices at the time.

    And for some reason I have this recurring dream of moving back to a house we once bought that we thought had structural issues (which after some time and effort we proved otherwise). But until we did the due diligence, it was a bit tiring, and we thought it may cost us some serious bucks. Why I am faced with ongoing dreams about the place ticks me, because when I'm sleeping it sure feels real!!!

    Another example.....I hate driving on fast freeways and on the edge of mountain roads. Both driving scenarios make my knuckles "very white", my legs rubbery, and my heart race. BUT, seems like every couple of years we go somewhere that I must engage in those drives, or we don't get to where we are going to. And each time I wonder, "how did I end up on this road????"

    I have many more examples.......like getting injuries because I push my limits. Or, like this past week when we were moving one of our kids.....and not giving ourselves an extra day or two to finish jobs, because we assumed that each activity would go according to plan and on schedule.......yeah right!!!!

    And I am sure many of us have made the mistake of getting back together with someone, and having it all fall apart "very quickly", because of the same old things......like George in that Seinfeld bit, where he returns to his old girlfriend.

    What about you? Have you ever fallen back into one of those places or situations that you swore you would never go back to????
