TC, my son waited until 6pm to go to the pool because it was too hot to go earlier (and he still had to put on sunblock)!!
My other son is into going to natural pools locally but didn't go today as it was too hot for the walk down and back up. It is now 1a.m. and I am sitting in a sleeveless top, with all the windows open, with a cool bag from the freezer on my neck to stop me from sweating. I don't feel guilty. I feel envious - I don't like it this hot!!
Today I did some hard thinking. I spoke with my sons re. our options as to where to live when the property settlement comes through. And I have made a decision. A huge positive for me - bipolars are terrible at making decisions - and I'm a Gemini as well
I've decided that no matter what it takes, I will rebuy in the area where we now live. If I did not have children, I would move far away - I have friends in other towns that are urging me to move and I don't want to stay around here - too many memories - too many people that know me as part of a couple. Personally, I would like a fresh start.
Financially, this places a huge burden on me that, at 50 years old, I don't want. I'd also like to live nearer the coast instead of an hour's drive away. But I want to do what is best for my sons. My youngest has been accepted into a local high school which he really wants to attend and my eldest has his social life around here (although that causes me lot of headaches, in itself!).
And I do have a huge support network locally and two businesses which I have set up in the last 18 months and are only now starting to expand. So the decision is made - I've just got to make it happen.
P.S. Anybody who wants to experience an Aussie Christmas and New Year is welcome to book in for future events!!
