Hello all!

Getting better at putting my foot down and making DH realize that we are NOT doing things together anymore. He asked about going to a boat show today, and I told him he should ask the kids if they want to go and then if they do then take them. "Oh you aren't going to go" NO Im not. Lawyer is still working on getting the initial things wrote up. Cannot wait till I get that call/email saying its written and that he is being served.

I am fighting my way back into grad school. Applied to take my final 2 classes for my Masters and filed an appeal to have my financial responsibility removed for the last semester where I had to drop out. While they were trying to work things out for me to be able to get the federal loan, the add/drop date passed by 2 days. they still want to change me over $900 for classes I did not take. Right now because I have not paid the bill, I cannot register for any classes there is a hold. So if I can get that lifted I can register and get going in the fall again. It will be a fight but I have professors that are willing to speak on my behalf. I hope it works out.

I am stuck in a weight loss rut. I keep going up and down like 1 or 2 lbs. Its driving me crazy!!!! I dont know what else to do. I dont think Im eating that bad. Im exercising. I just dont know what to do its driving me crazy!

Oh well I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Just over half a day in the country and back. Now checked out somewhere near our main water supply dam. Quite pretty and a good walk.



Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Got so much done yesterday and now I feel tired. But not too worry as soon - about an hour DH and I are going for a drive out to our dam about 1 1/2 hours away for a few photos and then drive around the surrounds to see what we can see.

Dee I hear you on the short days. I love them. Hope everyone has a good day.

Going to try some gluten free recipes tomorrow.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Stay away from Anger... It hurts only you!

If you are right then there is no need to get angry, and

if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry.

Yay, Cathy! As Ev and I have taught the boys, "You cannot control others' actions, only your reactions." Beautiful job on doing just that!

Hi, Suzanne!

Hugs to everyone.

Liam has a concert tonight at my old high school (the one Caddy should have gone to but we knew it was not right for him). All of the high school's feeder elementary and middle schools will be there - way too crowded and way too long. They all play pieces separately, then all together. I do like that, even though I cannot usually see Liam (percussion stands behind all of their instruments in the back), I can hear him (the only marimba or cowbell or whatever for that song). Caddy plays violin, so I can see him but never tell which of the 20+ violin sounds are his. :)

All of you are so amazing! Thank you so much for your kind and caring thoughts and words and birthday wishes.
My birthday was okay. The lesson in it for me was what I made of it and not what others did or didn't do. That is a lesson that is so hard to live by! But I am okay and moving forward.

It really helped to do some brisk (and I mean BRISK!) walking the last 2 days. It is incredibly cold out (single digits and wind chill) but I love it and the walk on the pond was amazing! I did ten laps around yesterday and 12 today.

Through it all I felt empowered when I reflected on where I am now. I have finally chosen to make my life what I want it to be and that is a daily thing most the time. I will write more on the empowerment later.

Thanks again everyone for your kind and thoughtful encouragement! You are my rocks!

Dee, feel better!

Tina, you amaze me with all that you do!

Georgia, you too! Hope you find some time to breathe.

Suzanne, I am so glad you found our daily chat thread! We are very happy to have you on the team and look forward to getting to know you.

Vicky, so glad things are rolling with the lawyer. Hope things are smooth sailing for you with getting back to work and school for the kids.

Becky, hope you well.

Amanda, hope things are calm and peaceful by you! Stop laughing!! I can hope!!

Everyone, hope you have a very happy healthy day!

Hugs, Cathy

G'day all.
Hello Suzanne. Hope you are having a wonderful day.
Dee hope you had a good rest and it helped make you feel better.
Georgia hope you have a wonderful relaxing weekend.
Long weekend here and council cleanup in a week so hoping tonight to get some of our rubbish out the front. Some old beds and lounges and then next week going into our carport and sort out the cupboards that have my tools and whatnots in. Hoping to get rid of what I don't use and cut down on the cupboards as one is looking lopsided.
One of those running around days. School for Ben, pick up Jen's pup for play date. Take Chris to Tafe, then to Tiffs work to pick up an Iphone she is giving my dad, then home for a few minutes. Then Kim to work and then home to hopefully mop floors, make some fudge and then hopefully a sit down before I do it all again. My life is never boring.
hugs to all, tina

Dear Cathy!

You are a terrific person! The warm and gracious welcome you gave me when I joined the team showed me exactly what an exceptional person you are! Reading the notes from fellow teammates shows me that we all know that and are very glad you're with us!

I'm sorry your husband forgot your birthday. :( I hope he will do something special for you today or this weekend or whenever you have the opportunity.

I'm also sorry your parents treated you the way they did. You have clearly risen above that!

We on this team are celebrating YOU, and you should, too!

Today is a new day, and I sure hope it's a better one for you!

Hello girls, Dee, Irish, Tina, Amanda Vicky,
thanks Georgia for doing a research on my name, that was very kind of you.

kathy, thing like this happen even in the best families, I can related to your stories as a child, I lived for about 3 years with step mother and family, and I could tell you many horrible things they did to me, but have decided to block those thoughts from my memories, I have a good relationship with them now, my step sisters always come to Florida, we don't talk about the pass, and when we do we talk about the good memories, I don't think they feel they did anything wrong, or how everything that happen made who I'm today. But I'm far from all that, I have overcome most of the obstacles, one of the family members that was so meant to me, I purchased a lot of clothes for her daughter, she also came for vacation, and I treated her like a queen. One of my others sisters said. I can't believe you did all that. Is part of the healing prosses you have to forgive, so you can move on, you have to do it for yourself.

Kathy is natural you feel this way, you are a very strong woman, but as strong as we are, we just all have those days where all those thoughts come back to hunt us, specially when we have disappointments with our DH or nearest family members, is like all the negative things are in our head all at ones to push us down. But the first step is to talk about it with some one, and you did so, with us in the team, now you have to make a list of all your many blessing, and focus on them. And say good bye to the negative thoughts. Ones I used this technique, I used a rubber band in one of my hands and every time a sad or negative thought would come I would pull the rubber band. Or you can always vent here and everyone will support you :-) hugs

G'day all.
Dee I hope you had a wonderful chill out time with your dd. Love chill out times.
Yudelka what a nice thing your name means. Take it on board and run with it. Because you are worth it.
Georgia woodworking is my stress reliever. My dad is almost 82 and is still able to handle a circular saw. Hopefully I can do the same.
Becky hope you have an amazing week.
Cathy you are an amazing woman. My DD was a "mistake" and for 30 years blamed himself for being born because he wrecked his dads plans for his life because he was forced to marry his mum. On his 30th birthday his dad told him he had finally forgiven him for being born. It has affected him his whole life and still does.
Deep hurts are called that because they run deep. Deep into a place we very rarely show to anyone. I feel privilidged that you shared that part of your life with us. Sharing is part of healing.
You did not choose to be born, or look as you looked. You had no say in what your parents or even the doctor said. They have to own that,
You are a unique person created by God for a purpose. Starting this group and bringing a bunch of women from all over the world together is one of those purposes.
I am so sorry that your hubby forgot your birthday. My hubby only remembers because my kids are such sticklers for numbers and so is he that something like a birthday would never be forgotten in our house. A present is another story though.
If you could see yourself as the amazing wonderful woman we see you as you would never hang your head again.
I pray for you peace and joy as you bring us peace and joy.
May we all be sitting here in one year hearing you tell us what an amazing birthday you had.
We love you lots and lots and sending you hugs after hugs across the ocean and cyber space just for you.
hugs to all for an amazing week.
hugs. tina

Waving hit to Vicki, Dee and Becky.

Cathy I must have known you needed a hug I dreamt of a Cathy I had not seen in years and she desperately needed a hug in my dreams I gave her one. Now I know it was you who needs a shoulder.
First of all the scar you mother created at birth is not erasable but you have risen above that. Goodness does you mother not know that genes carry for 7 generations. I will share something I rarely share. I was mentally and physically abused as a child by 2 different family members. The scars have been long and eternal. I too have risen above them but they do send me to the edges of despair many times during the cycle of life. I try extremely hard to rise above them.
I so understand about the birthday thing. My DH, as much as he loves me never buys me a gift. Always says take some money and buy what you need and then think I gave it to you.

Each year I hate my birthday from him but the rest of the world makes it up to me.

So my dear sweet friend Cathy please accept these wishes from me and us.
"Birthdays are a day for reflection...to celebrate who you are and who you will become. Your loving heart brightens the lives of all who know you. May this be a beautiful birthday.(with us at least.)
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We love you dearly and remember do not hold on these heavy hearted weights because in a week they will be in the far past......

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Thanks everyone!

You all know that I love my husband very much! He is a huge blessing to me. But he has some healing to do of his own due to a very hard childhood. More on that another time. I am thankful for all the good in him. But you know how sometimes as much as you love someone, it hurts so much more when they do something that hurts you? You know it's technically not their "fault" but it still is just so hard?

Well, he forgot my birthday. I was born 52 years ago today.

My mother cried and said that I "couldn't possibly be hers." The Dr. said, "if I hadn't delivered her myself I would say she wasn't yours." Nice way to start out in the world.
The reason for those comments? I was born to Scandinavian/European very fair skinned blue eyed parents. I was born looking like "nanook of the north" my mom would call me. I was very large and looked very obese at birth (truth) with very slanted eyes and jet black hair. My parents and surviving brother teased me for years about this until I told them to stop.

I don't know why it bothers me so much, but it just hurts with all the crappy things that have been done to me. After the abuse from my father at a young age, I decided that I would live my life never treating anyone the way I was treated. I have tried to treat every day as an opportunity to put a smile on someone's face and make a difference in their life. I have given and given and given. (I know many if not all of you can relate!)

I know my hubby feels terrible about it so it isn't like he meant it. He is getting counseling to work through things, I mean, what more can I ask? But I am hurt. I feel rejected and not worthy enough again.

Sorry to vent, but I know of all the people in my life, you would listen, support and understand. I am so thankful for all of you.

Hugs to all, Cathy

Cathy, sending emoticon emoticon your way. We are here for you. Do not ever feel that you can't share with us. We have all had our ups and downs. You have made this team a place where we feel safe and know we can share what is happening in our lives as others here will understand.

Georgia, thanks again for the info on the Coursera. I had written it down before but can't find it in my many stacks of paper.

Everyone Else, hope all is well. On my Kindle and hard to do individual replies.

Me, hanging in there. Up early as repairman coming to fix some things around here. Dh and dd off to an museum exhibit in Austin. Ds and I will have some quiet time til they return and then pizza for dinner tonight.

Yudelka yu-del-ka, yud(e)-lka\ as a girl's name is a variant of Yudit (Hebrew), and the meaning of Yudelka is "praise".

What a great name - it means praise. Woo hoo! Wishing you 10 year old good luck with his test.

Becky if your friends get to Brisbane let me know. Otherwise I can suggest some amazing places for them to visit as can Tina.

Tina I love that you love woodworking. Years ago before the RSI came to visit permanently I used to sew, crochet, and knit as well as doing tapestry. I miss those days but now do photography. It is marvellous to have an outlet of some sort.

Dee the courses I do are through and organisation called Coursera. They use mainly US universities but a lot of overseas ones have jumped on board. The 2 courses I am doing now are Slavery and the second one is a Nutrition course. 2 is too many with me working full time but I could not choose. I am sure you will enjoy it immensely as they have so much variety. The best part is they are free.

Cathy dear friend. Please do not be sad just surround yourself with our love and wamth and feel the positive vibes coming from across the globe.
Give the load to God and he will deal with it. Hugs and more hugs.

Love you all - you are more family than my family.



Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

My son fail In third grade ones this test and was held back, they gave him many opportunities to pass others test, he just couldn't pass any test, I almost gave up, and got him out of public school, and was looking for private schools for special needs kids, but in the school I went, they had a very large mixed of kids with many different problems that were far from ours, so I desided to keep him in the public system and change schools, he pass the state test last year, and this year he is doing great as well, hoping he can pass the test as well, this are our small victories as mom with special kids, watching our kids trying hard to overcome the many obstacles.
Georgia the origin of my name I'm not sure, but some Spanish used this name, not sure of the meaning, never done a search, take care hugs :-)

Slow but sure

Cathy, no need for apologies or to think you must always be supportive. So sorry you are feeling down - big hugs and good thoughts that your mood will lift. We are here for each other when it is needed - that's what friends do for each other.

Dee, enjoy the days off. I sure am!

I agree with what was written earlier (I think by Tina) - I feel closer to you all than my friends and acquaintances in the "real world" - you definitely know more of what is going on in my life and that of the boys, and you understand it more, too. I cannot express how much I appreciate that you all are here and are just who you are! Thanks for calling me cheerful, positive, etc. - there are often rough days, but conversing with my Spark buddies makes me want to "fake it until I make it" - and I always feel better after checking in here.

Hello Friends,

Just feeling really down right now. Sorry. I have read all your messages and will respond another time.
Know I am thinking of and praying for all of you.
I feel terrible when I am down and can't be a positive force for others. It's just not like me and not fair to you.
You are all so amazing and probably the best and truest friends I've ever had. I am so very thankful for all of you!

Hugs, Cathy

Hi All, hope you have a great day/evening!

Georgia, your upcoming holiday sounds lovely. I know this is coming out of left fieldbut could you tell me the name of that school/organization that you can take classes over the internet with?

Yudelka, glad your Mom is able to help you with the children while your dh is away.

Becky, hope the kids and dh feel better soon.

Tina, you are amazing with all that your create. Can't wait to see your pics.

Vicky, glad things are moving forward for you.

Cathy, hope all is well.

Everyone Else, do hope things are going well with you and your families.

Me, hanging in there. Looking forward to having the next two days off from work. Feel I need to chill and relax a bit.

G'day all.
You are all amazing ladies and I am so grateful to know you. You are closer to me than some I actually see. Thankyou for your kind words. I am working towards being proud of me and what I have achieved. Onward and downward we go.
Yudelka small changes are lasting changes. I hope that you and your hubby find small changes which will make your lives closer.
Becky you are such a bright spark on this team. I hope you continue to feel supported as you support us.
Vicky normality is good and having the kids back to school is the best kind of normality. Hope everything works out for you with the lawyer.
Georgia the nights are cooler here too and the days although hot seem less heavy. Woo hoo on your holidays. We have a long weekend this coming weekend and looking forward to that. A day hopefully of rest and relaxation.
Shopping today and then hopefully will get the hat rack up. Made one out of some expandable trellis which I framed and then painted white. We have a lot of caps here and I wanted to use them to make a display near the front door. Will post piccy when finished.
Love woodworking.
hugs and love to all, tina

How fun! Where are you going? My best friend and her sister will be in Australia for about 10 days in May. They hiked an insane trail in NZ a few years ago - I wonder what adventures they have planned this time? Easy walks and photography sound more like my speed on a vacation. :)

Vicki glad the days are getting back into routine and things a re moving along.

Becky I am with you., I wish I had Tina's stamina to achieve that sort of great loss.

The nights are definitely cooler and the days are getting shorter.
We were meant to go for our break on 17th and they asked me to help out at a store I have helped out before. I changed my holidays to a week earlier and now we are going on the 7th for a week. Cannot wait. Fresh air, country roads and hopefully some good photographic opportunities. So now trying to organise everything faster. LOL!! Only the end of next week.

Hugs everyone

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Tina you should be proud. That is an absolutely amazing achievement. I wish I could shift just one kilo. The desk idea sound wonderful. So happy for your daughter and her new home.

Becky glad you got the soup. Hope everyone is feeling better and yes we do have to thank some movie stars for simplifying things for our children.

Yudelka just talk day to day stuff with your DH while he is away. Best to talk about important things face to face. I love my mummy too - she has always helped me and now that she is older and not so capable it is my turn to help her. What nationality is your name. It has me very curious because of its uniqueness.

We are all grateful people here and there is no need to thank us all the time. We are a cyber family.

Hope i did not miss anyone. Love you all.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Thank you to all of you, hugs :-) I'm feeling better, I'm home alone with my 3 kids, but my mother came this afternoon to help out, and I can always count on her, DH called from Puerto Rico and also has being texting, so the lines of communication are being open so far, not the topics I wanted to talk about, but I will leave it alone for sometime, and get back to it later on, and let DH concentrated in the job he has to do in Puerto Rico .

Irish I'm glad you had a way to get the kids to wear their glasses, great idea.

Hugs to all of you, dee, Georgia,Tina, Amanda, kathy, good nigh :-) emoticon Thanks for the support, I'm always thanking people get used to me lol that is my way always over thanking averyone always grateful !!

Thanks for the soup, Georgia. :)

Peace is beautiful, Tina!

Liam got his first pair of glasses today. Caddy's had a defect in the anti-glare coating and had to be returned, so his glasses won't arrive until later this week or next. The boys look so cute in glasses! Thank goodness they are ok wearing them - we have Harry Potter and Dr. Who (Tennant) to thank for that. :)

G'day all.
Cathy I understand how hard it is to find time for anything. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Hoping you can find time to come on as much as possible. hugs.
Becky hope that your boys are feeling better soon and that no one else gets it. Stay healthy.
Dee I hope you can pinpoint the correct person to talk to so that you can get more hours.
Yudelka hope you are doing well.
Georgia our nights are getting cooler sometimes. Hoping for cooler days under 30C. Tired of the heat.
Vicky how are you now you are back to normality.
Had a lovely day with my dd. When we got to the house the paver was there and he let us in so we could walk through. DD took a huge amount of pictures and the look of joy on her face was worth it. They should hopefully be in within the next couple of weeks.
On the way down picked up an old cot. Going to turn it into a desk for my sewing and scrapbooking. Won't be for a few weeks but will post pictures when finished.
Have been struggling with my weight since Christmas, not losing or yo-yoing a bit. Realised over the last few days I should be proud of the 60kg I have lost and if I never lost another kilo I would be okay as I am. Would like to lose more but not as worried now. Just going to plod along and do what I have always done and if the weight goes then great. Just want to be healthier now. Feeling more at peace than I have done for a while.
Having an easy day today. Kids are off so having a quiet day.
hugs, tina

Thanks for the cheers for Liam's team. I thought he would refuse to go into the building where the competition was being held - they had all of the team tables in the small lobby, so it was crowded and loud - but he did ok.

Caddy caught Ev's cold and is home sick today. I thought he would insist on going to school, because they have all 6 classes on Mondays, plus he has a math test and a French oral, but he didn't (which means he feels awful, poor boy). He did panic when the attendance call-in line was not working this morning - "I can't be marked truant!" - but eventually I was able to reach someone in the office, so he could relax. Liam is showing signs of getting sick, but he went to school today. I hope Mum and I don't get it! We told the boys that they can keep it to themselves. :)

Wishing everyone a marvelous day!

Tina how was the house. Moving along nicely I hope.
I wish her luck in getting a job closer to home. Always a blessing not to have to travel too far.

Yudelka hope today is a better day. Life is like a wave of surf. You have highs and lows. Learning to handle them is the secret. Also it is this time of year just before the seasons change and people's moods are either too tired from the heat (us here) or not coping with the winter months. Hang in there and just walk when you get stressed. Always clears my mind and helps me find solutions.

Becky how awesome on the robotics competitions. Much better result than last time. Woo hoo!!

Cathy we understand how busy you are. Just be well. Hugs.

Dee I hope you get more hours. It is hard sometimes to find the right person in huge companies. I am keeping fingers crossed you get the hours you need.

Cooler nights thank God and the days are getting shorter.(not happy about that).
Busy day with catching up at work yesterday.
Happy Tuesday everyone.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

HI All, just checking in.

Yudelka, do hope things work out with your dh. My dh doesn't like to talk about some things either and I have written him emails or letters and given him a chance to think about it before talking face=to=face with him. HUGS! Glad you and the children had fun at the kids' party.

Becky, YEAH on the competition! Congrats to Liam and the rest of his team. Enjoy your spring break.

Georgia and Tina, I am hoping to get to talk to someone in charge of the schedule to see if I can get more hours. I have spoken to three people so far and each has told me I need to talk to a particular person about it but it is three different management people.LOL! So in a quandary about who actually is in charge.

Cathy, glad schooling is going well. You do so much for us and your family. HUGS!

Vicky, how are things with you?

Amanda, hope all is well.

Everyone Else, do hope things are going well.

Me, hanging in there. Have short hours today and tomorrow and looking forward to having Wed and Thurs off. Otherwise all is well.

Hi all!

Sorry I haven't been on much. Busy as always, but not an excuse. We are doing school so i can only take a moment.
Know that I am praying for all and thinking very good thoughts!

Also, there is always a way through our trials and challenges. It may be hard and tiring, but if we keep putting one foot in front of the other we won't stay in the trial we are in, but move forward to a better place.

Hugs, Cathy

Hi to all! Hugs for keeping moving forward!

The robotics competition went well yesterday. Liam's team came in 3rd out of 22 teams (he did not want to drive in the actual competition, but he did the skills challenge and helped fix the robot when it broke), and our school's other team won the design competition. A very successful day. :) The season is now over for us. We will go see the world championships in April, because they are in Anaheim (near Disneyland - about 25 miles from us), but we do not have any more competitions ourselves.

Have a great week! I am on spring break - no classes to teach in the evenings. :)

G'day all.
Yudelka my husband has aspergers and I have learnt over the years what he is about. As I said to someone yesterday he has only ever bought me a couple of surprise presents. The rest I have bought myself and wrapped even. But he doesn't take money from the house, he doesn't go out to the pub with his mates, doesn't hit me or the kids and I always know where he is. Sometimes who we dreamt of in a man is not what we end up with. I hope that you and your hubby can work this out. Hoping you have an amazing week.
Dee I am hoping to pick up a few more hours now too. I hope you don't get too tired.
Georgia glad you had time to sit and watch a movie. Hope your week is easy.
Going with daughter to see her house today. They should be finished building in the next couple of weeks so she hopefully will be in within a month. She has also applied for new jobs closer to home so will be wonderful if she gets one of them.
Have an amazing week and hugs and love to all, tina

Tina had a good evening watching a movie with DH.

Dee I hear you on taking whatever hours are offered to you. I help out where possible too.

Yudelka we all have issues with family members and I have had issues with my ex husband not being much of a communicator. I even asked him to go to counseling but he refused. if you communicate with your DH in a way that works for both of you then go with that, as we get older we have trouble dealing with things and men are thew same but they deal with things so much more differently than us. Try your best and that is all you can do.
The other thing is to vent here. Sometimes just talking about things helps us see things differently as we share opinions and ideas to help us through.

Nice day at work today and now home.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Hello to you all in the team and thanks .
Irish, Georgia, Amanda, Vicky, Dee, Thanks for your kind words, and advice. I took your advice Georgia and spoke to a friend about one of the situations that was having me down, and they help me refocus, and to see that it was not as big as I was putting it, and to only focus on more important things, and not to led things put me down, and to led them slide, and not add them up because if I do, the only one getting more hurt is me.

Well that is that, the other situation, had to do with my husband, I have not told anyone about that one yet, I would shared with this team.
I was very sad, because had some issues with DH, we talk about it but not much, He does not like to talk about some topics, I had to write it down lol can you believe this !!! them asked him the questions, and had him give me back the paper with the responds to my concerns. But this time he said he did not had time to go over one of my letters, so I got very upset. any ways matters won't have a solution any time soon, I guess I will have to wait to see what is going to happen, I have 3 kids so I'm trying very hard to keep things in order in the house and keep relationship with a open communication, but DH is hard to get him to talk. Later on he did answer some of my allegations, said I had nothing to worry about. I felt some relief, but I don't have a solution to my problem as yet,but will see. He is going to a business try to Puerto Rico for a week, so maybe he will have more time to think about it, will see. That's all for now Thanks all for allowing me to vent. Today I feel so much better, the kids were invited to a kids party and they had so much fun, got to be with old friends, and that is all good, I of course did not brought any of does subjects at the party. I just had fun with the other moms and kids. I won't be able to change my situation with DH now, he already knows what he needs to do, so I will give him the opportunity to react. hugs emoticon

Hi All, hope you have a good weekend.

Georgia, WOW on how much you got done on your day off!!

TIna, the room and cupboards will come together. Take your time and do it at your pace.

Vicky, do hope you are able to get your dh to understand that you mean what you say. I cannot imagine what you are dealing with on a daily basis with work, kids, and the changing situation in your home life. HUGS!

Yudelka, hope you are feeling better. HUGS!

Becky, hope the robotics competition went well.

Cathy and Amanda, do hope all is well.

Everyone Else, check in when you can and let us know how you and your families are doing.

Me, hanging in there. Worked yesterday from 3-11pm, was supposed to get off at 7pm but a coworker became ill and I was asked if I could work til 11 to cover her shift. I said yes, as I needed the hours, but also wanted to help out. Today was 9-2:30pm and tomorrow is 7-3pm. I'm tiredbut otherwise doing well. Did get my haircut after work today and I feel so much lighterLOL!!

G'day all.
Very tired here. Got the furniture in its new places but now have to put move things around in the cupboards etc for easier access. Having a weekend off as I am at work this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon. Will continue on next week and should be done by the end of the week. Not rushing just plodding.
Sending you all love and hugs and prayers for wonderful days.
hugs, tina

Yudelka, I hope your mood has lifted. I don't like down days when the cause is unknown. Big hugs!

Vicky, Dee, Cathy, Georgia, Amanda, and anyone I missed - hi and hugs to you, too!

Saturday is the robotics competition in San Diego, so I may not get on here. Wishing everyone a peaceful, relaxing weekend!

Amanda you are so busy keeping it all together. You are my hero. Hugs.

Yudelka hope you are feeling better today. If not sending you some hugs emoticon

Dee hope the shift went fast and you are home snug in bed by now..

Vicki I really think you need to stop having him over for dinner. If the kids need to see him you need to go to public places. I also feel you should have all his stuff packed and ready to go. Finality is what he needs to understand. It is tough but if you need him to understand then you need to do things that show finality. He can still see the kids, etc but not on the home turf. I may be harsh but I feel this is what needs to be done so he can see you really mean what you say.

I got so much done yesterday - washing, cleaning mopping, shopping and then crashed on the couch in front of the tv. Needed it I guess. Felt good to achieve it all on my only day off this week.

Stay warm and safe. The sky is trying ever so hard to build up some rain. Even had thunder last night but nothing else.


Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

YUDEL, sorry to hear you are feeling down. We are all here for you to talk.

Georgia WTG on the house work. I did the same yesterday. Went though my closet and got some of the DH's stuff packed up. Now gotta get him to take the crap. Makes it more real and I know he doesnt like that. Oh well.

Tina great job on the painting. Thats one job I do not like to do at all! Usually leave it to someone else.

Amanda and Cathy, Becky hope all is well.

The week is winding down. We've had warm temps here in Buffalo but rainy. When we go back to school/work on Monday back to the teens for temps, of course. Called the lawyer yesterday to check in but still haven't heard from here in a few weeks. Hope to hear from her soon.

Every time Im the slightest bit nice to the DH he takes it as "all is well". I invited him to come to dinner with us Wed night and now its back to trying to kiss me when he leaves the house and saying "I love you" 2 or 3 times, like hoping I will say it back. When I tell him to stop, I get "well I dont see what is wrong with a kiss once in a while for all I do for you!" WHAT! He helped with the work I had to get done on the car, not paying for it mind you just doing it. I told him if thats what he expects then I will not go to him for anything. UGH!

Oh well, here's to Friday!
