The CBS morning news show just confirmed. My Bauers, Spauldings, Coopers, Shaynes, Lewises, Boudreaus,Riveras, Wolfes, Marlers, Winslows and assorted others have only six months to live. They are terminal. I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm going to cry through every episode for the next sixth months. I cried myself to sleep last night.

What other show can I watch for my treadmill? It was my carrot. I despise doing my workout, but I can't watch my show unless I do it from the treadmill (unless I'm sick or have a whole stash of vacation ones to catch up on). What else comes on every week day with never a repeat - ever - with out fail? Nothing but another soapie or the news. The news IS depressing. Another soapie would be like moving to a new town. I'd have to get to know everyone from scratch. I wouldn't know their histories or their little secrets. And then it would get canceled, too. *sigh*

This is just wrong. It's been part of my life for 26 years. Longer than Jeff! There are still eight cast members who are the original actors who were on the show when I started watching it in 1983. They've left and come back a few times over the years, but they are my constants. Beth Raines Spaulding Lemay Spaulding Bauer almost Spaulding again had her first child when I had my first child. And amazingly enough, little Lizzie Spaulding didn't go through the horrors of Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome like a lot of soapie kids. She's a little older than my son is now, but not a lot. She just had to endure childhood Leukemia, shooting her mother's abusive boyfriend, and growing up in the Spaulding mansion with her psychotic grandfather.

I have to go to work now. I am in denial. This can't really happen. What am I going to do?

Nothing lasts forever...

Nothing.

Including this tiny posting streak.

I am bitter.
