I'm menstruating again...second time this month. I haven't bothered to count how many days in between yet. It's been twice or three times a month since July. I may need to take out a second mortgage to cover the cost of sanitary supplies!
Darryl and I had a big fight with Devon last night...I can't stand it when things blow up so big and ugly. He's moving on campus in January, so if we can only hold it together until then, things between us should improve. I'm sure that's part of this...as much as he wants to leave, he also is afraid. And it would be easier to go if he was mad at us and thinking we're stupid.
Today I'm putting several gardens to bed for the winter. It's time...we've had a lovely mild fall but it can't be expected to hold out much longer. I really need to get those things done.
Getting hungry...and it's now been an hour since I took my iron, so I can go have some breakfast.

I'm enjoying a few minutes of quiet before my crazy day begins...last farmers' market of the season, have to get flea stuff at the vet's, go to the recycling center, health food store, facilitate the empowerment class and go to Delhi to see if Devon's car can be driven to the garage or needs to be towed.
I really dislike going to the farmers' market in the rain, but it's the last one of the season, so I have to go stock up and take advantage of the reduced prices they'll be having. It's soup in the crockpot season again!!!
Tomorrow is supposed to be nicer...maybe Darryl and I can go for a hike.
I've got to get busy to get everythig done in time. (empowerment class is at noon)

Phew! It's been one busy, hectic week! I'm so glad the weekend is upon us! Monday was small group ministry for me. Tuesday was yoga and the UCCCA film. Wednesday I had to go to Delhi to pick up Devon (because of the car crash) and yesterday I didn't have to do anything and I didn't!
Poor Darryl has had something to do every single afternoon/night. Monday through Wednesday was a food safety class he has to take every five years. Thursday (last night) was his coach's class and tonight he's chaperoning a high school dance. We're both really looking forward to the weekend!
Work is so difficult...and I haven't heard anything from DSS, either. Maybe I still will, but I don't want to wait around if they've already filled the position. (I called yesterday and left a message, confirming they'd received my application and resume.) Guess I need to print out more copies of my resume and seriously hit the pavement, if I'm going to get a new job.
Have to go make breakfast and get to work. :~(

Devon had a car accident yesterday, on the way to college. A deer jumped out in front of him and he tried to avoid it. He crashed the car but he's okay. So is the deer, but I have a close friend whose stepbrother died in a car accident, trying to avoid a deer. I've told him to only apply brakes and not to swerve, but I guess his instincts told him differently in the moment.
How nerve-wracking!!!! But here's the incredible thing: I didn't eat over it! My normal routine to something like that is to stress eat and I didn't do that.
We'll take the car to the garage on Saturday to see how badly it's damaged. Until then, he's carpooling with a professor who lives around the corner.
Gotta go grab some breakfast and get to work. More next time.

The silent film with live music last night was very nice...I'm glad we went. (Kate and I took a friend of ours.)
I've been slacking in recording my third meal of the day...I've been so darn busy that by the time I get home, I'm brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed and don't want to log on the computer. Although, I guess I could log it on the next morning.
Anyway, tonight I don't have plans after work, so I can get caught up on my sparkpeople things and other emails.
I'm feeling very PMSy, so I think it's coming again...I really hate being so inconsistent and having it all the time. I never know what my true weight is and I'm moody much of the time.
My new mantra is the last line of the heart sutra and I'm finding it's helping me tremendously. Whenever I'm struggling with someone, I try to hold them in my heart while I say it.
Am running late and need to find my water bottle...more at lunch break, maybe.
