Congratulations, Friendly! Keep it up. I like I actually smiled at a stranger rather than looking at my feet or turning away. It feels good.

Learning to keep a sense of humor is a big part of healing. This morning I was tested on this point. Make that a final exam without warning. Last night something happened and we were without water. I was afraid the pipes had frozen after asking the kids to check all the faucets. This turned out to be a big mistake. It seems my son decided to leave the bathtub facuet on so we would know if the water came on. Sure enough the first thing we found out in the morning was our water was back. My oldest made the discovery of a flooded bathroom and upstiars carpet. It seems my son neglected to remove the stopper from the tub. :wazzup: The full extent of the damage is not yet known. I really am trying to keep a good humor about this, but its not easy.

Yep, Weiss, those kids really test the humour stakes!

Today it is a rainy morning again - keep it coming!! The mud is wonderful and there are puddles for kids to jump in! Looking forward to a day without kids after a busy weekend.

Good job, friendly! I had two friends call this weekend. They were people I hung out with, but I had no idea they'd be there for me in a crisis. Then I remembered the same two had been great during my illness two years ago. It's nice to think of two friendships I can develop more deeply during this time.

Last night I attended a community meeting and listened as a lot of people talked about a subject in which I feel very passionately. It was difficult to listen as many spoke out in favor of a course forward that I honestly cannot support. However I listened and spoke more from a point of view of coming together, or at least that's how I felt and what others seemed to believe. This is a topic that had the risk of bringing out much of the old anger so I feel relieved that did not happen.

My eldest son was in a foul mood when he got up this morning - abusing his little brother who fled in tears into his room. The day had the potential to de disastrous. But this evening was a pleasant surprise with him giving me a KISS (of his own accord!!) when I had to go out for a work meeting. And I still got my bedtime hug.:biggrin:

Congratulations, friendly!

Balbrenny have you asked your son if he was aware of changes in his mood during the day? It might be interesting to know if he can see what's happening within himself.

I had a wonderful weekend of reading and working on various projects that are meaningful to me. I needed some time to heal the soul and it feels good.

Another glorious sunrise to start a week of giving thanks. I'm not entirely sure what the motivation was but last night our family had a wonderful discussion about how people can take different routes toward a place of healing without one being more right than another. The common denominator my son felt has to be is seeing the people and staying away from thoughts of evil. Most of us in this community probably agree with this but its sometimes good to remember the basics.

Keep it up friendly. I'm still pumping caffeine into my system even thought its break week. I know how hard it can be to quit a habitt. I'm feeling positve today because I have plans for nice quiet Thanksgiving and a chance to just be with friends. I need that so much. Plus, my new monitor arrived so I'm not looking at a cracked computer screen. Trust me when I say this made me very happy.

Whew! It feels good to have the time to read all of the neat things people are doing and feeling!!! Yahoo!!!!

I was so tickled when my boss invited me to Thanksgiving dinner at her house with her family last Friday. It felt soooo good. Yesterday, my son asked me what I was doing for TG. I told him that I had plans with friends. He told me that his father ... my husband ... is having his girlfriend over for TG and he didn't really want to be there. I told my son that my plans could be changed. No problem. Yesterday afternoon we picked up a couple of Cornish Game Hens to have for TG!!! I'm delighted to have the opportunity to spend the holiday with him this year. Still, it does feel kind of weird that my husband is having his girlfriend over for the holiday. I'm working on letting it go.

I woke up at 4 am this morning stressed about work. It is so hard for me to be new. There are so many things to learn. It so feels that many of the mistakes I make, I shouldn't have. Nevertheless, I just keep putting one foot in front of the other, doing the best that I can. There are a couple of things that I'm very uncomfortable with and can't get the bloody concepts to gel. I so dislike not knowing what I'm doing ... I just want to know everything, perfectly NOW!!!

It had been kind of a tough day. Late this afternoon, the boss asked me if I was coming back tomorrow. I replied, absolutely ... if she'll have me. She said that she's looking forward to it.

It felt good that despite feeling like I'm not getting some of the stuff that I'm still welcome back. Especially because I am there as a temp.

Cheers!
Life
