I walked in the door after work and my husband did the happy dance. On July 9th he starts training for Pitney Bowes. The first three months I think are full time for training, then three months of part to 3/4 time and after that it should go to full time. Finally I can relax a little. And plan a celebration dinner at Red Lobster. We are actually quite lucky in that it only took him 4 months to get a new job. It felt so much longer than that. He is so excited and proud of himself. It's the job he wanted and he did it on his own.

Other than that, I think coffee is a bad thing for me. I was dragging this morning and I had just bought a new thing of sf vanilla caramel creamer (yummy), as an occasional pick me up. Today it made me hungry and then I about had panic attack thinking about the rafting trip this morning. Took a long time to get my heart rate down. Once that calmed down I wasn't nearly as frightened of the trip. I did find an easier, more scenic trip that I am trying to get the guys to do because there is still a chance the fourth person will be joining us after all. My husband of course says I don't have to go, but I don't want to let my fear hold me back. I've done this trip twice with only mild bruising. And we probably won't do the last, and scariest set of rapids.

    Very happy for you guys and keep us posted on how your trip went. Try not to dwell too much on it and enjoy the ride and the beauty surrounding you while you go down the river.

    emoticon to your hubby! Hopefully you'll still be able to do the Michigan trip, and experience it with less stress over the cost.

Caffeine can actually cause panic attacks. I'd suggest going with decaf if you want to have coffee and finding other ways to pick yourself up.

    emoticon emoticon As for the rapids I don't blame you if you did not go. I would be afraid too plus I can't swim.
