"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 got a new cage for my hamster :wink: There were also a pair of ferrets at the store that were really cute. They would make great pets someday.

Congratulations friendly! Keep it up. Also to mel, hestia, and Tony for being able to let go of the anger and have compassion.

My positive is that I will be leaving on Saturday for a week in Las Vegas. :cookiemonster: This vacation was originally planned for last year, but the plans kind of fell through, so I had to reschedule my trip. One of my girlfriends was talking about coming out with me, but she bailed out at the last minute due to money issues, as I figured she would. Luckily, my boyfriend is now going to come out to join me on Wednesday and stay until Saturday. This is a good thing, since I was a little worried about being left to my own devices in Sin City for an entire week, with a VERY new boyfriend at home. :bigtimetrouble: I have never been to Vegas before, and I really don't know if I could promise to be a "good girl" under those circumstances. After all, I don't have a ring on my finger. :mischief: Apparently, my boyfriend started worrying about this too, and so he finally stopped procrastinating and arranged to come out to join me. Of course, this still leaves me unchaparoned for the first half of my trip, but I thought of a way to keep myself occupied, since I don't really gamble at all. I will go shopping! :newtonguesmile: I'm sure that will keep me busy for a while.

I'm alive and that is tolerable to me. Sorry, it doesn't get any more positive for me.

I second Bikerboy's assessment. I'm alive and that's as good as I'm doing at the moment. :dropjaw:

It has taken me about twleve bags of garbage (maybe more) and two trips of a carload to Salvation Army, but my house now resembles a place someone might actually want to live. The carpets are still dirty and the walls still need painting, but it is much more tolerable. Which is unfortunate, since my landlady has received a call from someone who might want to buy the place. We will cross that bridge when we come to it.

My back aches from the hard work, but I feel very, very satisfied with the work that I have done over the past month, and I think my boys will appreciate having a much cleaner tidier environment.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend (wet and rainy here, perfect cleaning weather!)

Mel

A friend of mine told me that I need to stop reading psychology books. I'm starting to think she might be right. :wink: I'm also starting to look into what courses I can take next year at college.

ONE BIG HUGE STEP.........

My husband apologized (in his own way) for being such a jerk in counseling last week. An unsolicited apology too!!! :claphands:He broke down some of those walls and asked (begged) for help. He is going to try a new individual therapist, he doesn't feel he is gelling to well with the one he has now. I know he will take some steps backwards along the way but hopefully there will be many more steps going forward.:loveya:

Congrats to Abby. Unsolicited apologies are something to treasure.

My Mother stopped by unexpectedly this weekend and commented my apartment seemed really clean. Not bad for a confirmed slob such as myself. :bricks:

Have fun in Vegas Blonde.

One sure fired bet is for the Eagles to lose in the NFC Champsionship game. After three years of this we can almost set our watches by it. Sorry if its too early for football wars.

For the record I wouldn't trust you in Sin City.

I got the last Lord of the Rings soundtrack. It's really cool music. I love Howard Shore.
