Had a good day here. Started the day off with schoolwork and then got a couple quick errands done before needing to drop my daughter off at a friends place. She spent the entire afternoon three and had a great time. I was able to get quite a bit accomplished on my "to do" list as little boy spent most of the afternoon outside working with his dad.

Had a friend over for our monthly game night which was fun. We played a couple rounds of "Scotland Yard" and then called it a night. Made plans for her to come back over the end of the month to color Easter eggs.

Had a good conversation and cry with Maegann before bed as her time with her friend brought out some emotions about wanting to be liked for who she is. So sad that we didn't know about the mean kids much earlier in her young life as we could have helped her before it got this bad. I know she'll be so strong when she comes through it all, but it is hard to watch her walk through it all. She also expressed that she felt like she was running away from it all and that that was a bad thing so I began the work of letting her know sometimes it is healthier to make changes. Good that she is trying to sort more things out though...that's a good sign.

Tomorrow... gym, pick up my Bountiful Basket, buy some groceries and pick up a couple things at the office store. Vet....if I can get the dogs in for their nail trims. We also have playgroup in the evening.

Needing to set a March goal and I haven't quite landed on it yet. I do want to keep working at the weighing & measuring too as that still has some work.

    Can you believe it is already March? Hope your BB was as great as mine! I also got a case of blackberries as they are my favorite. And an extra asparagus for being a volunteer.

    So glad your daughter is seeing the importance of getting toxic people out of our lives. I've thought it was running away for a long time myself until I finally came to understand that I am worth taking good care of myself and if that means walking away from toxic situations as both you and I have done in the recent past then so be it!

    Yes, she will be so much stronger having gone through this and by dealing with it through counseling!
