It has been so windy and blustery here that I would prefer to stay inside and curl up under the covers. But instead my husband and I spent some time putting some things away and making our home more comfortable. I also made some progress in my office.
Today I am grateful for the warmth of our home, the wonderful roast dinner tonight and seeing new friends.
Still need to focus more on myself....

Seems like this is so hard for some people. I know I have my moments and life can be tough, but I am so tired of the continuous blame game that so many have become accustomed to. I was reading a post on facebook from a couple of my friends and co-workers and it really upset me, actually only one upset me and the only one was just sad. Instead of trying to figure something out, he was all about blame. It really makes me sad. It also makes me more aware of what I can do for myself and that is to be 100% accountable for my actions. I may not have control of everything, but I can control my reactions to it and also be an example.
On another note, it is a blustery, raining evening. One that should be spent asleep under lots of covers, which is where I am headed now.

I had a day off today, although as busy as it was, I am not so sure it was. Up early and 100 mile drive back to my home town. Saw my Mom for a little bit and then visited my Dad. He looks good from his surgery. I also spent time w/ my daughter and went with her to her dr appt and then we both went for chiropractic treatments! Something every mother should be doing with their 22 year old daughter. NOT! It saddens me and hurts me to see her in such pain. I think this dr appt went well today and answered some questions for her and me.
At the end of the day, however, this trip has exhausted me. I have to work tomorrow 6:30 am to 11:30 am and a couple of errands and then I hope to be home for some relaxation time. Also hope to finish my craft/exercise room Wed/Thur!

After all of these years you would think that I would have clue as to who I was. Except my life revolved around everyone else and what they wanted, how they felt, what they needed, their goals, their talents and their lives. A friend once told me a story that when asked how she was doing, she remarked that her husband was having a good day. How many times have I felt the same way, said the same thing.
When people ask me what I like to do, I will comment how this family member is great at this and that one is good at that, etc. etc.
So how does one discover the inner workings of themselves?
Today I went to a meeting that concentrates on that subject and although I thought I was doing well on the subject, it appears that I still have a lot of learning to do.
Perhaps I need to start my day with my daily reminders and concentrate of what will make me happy and go from there.
I have tomorrow off from work and I will be headed back to see my daughter and other family members. Although I am excited to be going back for a visit, I will be glad to be back home tomorrow night for some self time.
