"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

I echo the good wishes for all our college students. I hope this year brings you nothing but the best. Being an NPD parent I throw in best wishes for all of us who are seeing are kids off to another year of k-12 class as well. We survived another summer :cookiemonster:

I think that's my positive. One more summer is safely in the books with no major incidents. Let's here one collective sigh of relief.

Hi all, its a hot day here on the Palouse. One of the few remaining before the Polar Bears settle in for the extended, exceptionally long season. So i'm going to celebrate by heading off to the water park with my niece and nephew. Sounds like a cool way for them to spend their last day before returning to school.

Have you had a class yet, Matt? If not wait until the real fun starts before you judge how well things are going. :evillaugh:

I'm has ready as I can be for this year. I think I've made a committment to do well and have this be at least as successful as last year.

first the bad news. I wasn't paying attention on the morning bikeride and was thrown head first over the handle bars after slamming the brakes on has hard as I could. I'm happy to say the brakes work. The accident was kind of my fault because I was staring behind me at a girl going the other way when a kid came out of nowhere. The kid is fine, I think. Meanwhile I landed face first and broke one tooth and chipped another. It hurt like f--kinh heck. The good news is I admitted that I was in pain and made an appoiontment with the dentist. He put me on drugs and I'm not worth much for the rest of this day. But at least I admitted I was in pain and did somethihng about it. For me this is a rare positive. Don't count on me joining in on the chat, highly unlikely.

I hope I'll be alright, Bikerboy, we'll see.

UVA is going well so far, there are some ups there are some downs. I met several new people, but also had many boring lectures and slept badly one night. Classes start on Wednesday.

Don't ask me how I managed to cut and paste one of my old posts into this thread last Thursday. This is what happens when I try to sneak onto this site in the middle of the night and get surprised by BF coming out to see what I'm doing. :bricks:

Other than that, things have been going smoothly on the relationship front, with no major incidents lately.

Anyway, I hope whatever the dentist gave you took care of your tooth pain, Tony. Ouch.

Also, congratulations everyone on making it to 1000 posts!

I actually got off my ass today and investigated some of the resources people have been telling me are available in my community. It looks as though I might not have to go through this alone.

Glad you explained that one CB, I thought I was loosing my mind (OK, lets clarify, what was left of my mnd!).

Two positives, supermom strikes yet again. After years of fighting at bedtime, I finally have this thing figured out!

Number two, my number 1 baby starts school tomorrow. He's growing up. Also a good thing as it forces my ex to follow more of a "normal" schedule as far as the kids are concerned!

Hope you are ok Tony!

I'm "out sick" again today and to make up for the pain of my broken teeth I'm treating myself to a massage. This is interesting because of my not liking to be touched, so we shall see how this goes.
