Deb, Hope is doing wonderfully, though she is barking more than I want her to. I'm hoping she will grow out of it or I can get a better handle on how to stop it. We learned a few things about crate training from the trainer and are going to try that tomorrow. Today we are all too tired to bring the crate in from the car, where we had to take it to the trainer's when she spent the night. Training starts on Monday and I can't wait! So glad you had someone to keep you company and the water play for the kids sounds great!

Rissa, I'm so happy you were elsewhere and didn't go to Trader Joe's!!

I feel like we have been non-stop for 5 days now, and school is about to wind up as well, so it's about to get crazy again. I've got one elementary and one middle schooler, so car line is going to be twice as long. But I will not have my kids on the bus, both DH and I had bad experiences on the bus and neither of us are willing to have the kids on the bus except for school events where there are also teacher's on the bus.

Went to go to sleep and my Hope went from almost asleep to running Nascar around the house. So I'm waiting for her to settle down so that I can finally get some sleep!

Hope y'all are doing well!

Good morning ladies !!

Audrey, I'm so sorry that you are having problems with the girls. It is difficult when you are the primary care giver to deal with all that moodiness and mood changing. I hope that you can get a break from the stress.

Kari, I'm so glad to hear that you are enjoying Hope and have solved a potentially fatal problem. Puppies chew -especially Labs. They are going to get into things. Kudos to you for getting to the root of the problem before it became an issue. Hope is going to be your best friend, if she isn't already. I am glad that she is already responsive to you and your moods. Labs are wonderful companions. I hope that things just keep getting better and better for you and Hope.

Rissa, Wow, what an experience with the Trader Joe's shooting. About two years ago here we had a shooting near Christmas time at our Clackamas Mall. Several people were shot and two people died. I was there during the shooting, close enough to have been one of the victims if I hadn't found a table to hide behind. It really freaked me out for months. I was depressed and loud noises just undid me not to mention crowds. I am so glad that you were just out and about during the chase and hadn't gone into the store. Scary stuff. I hope that your downtown trip was a success.

I haven't been doing much except staying in the house where it is cool and trying to keep busy in here. I bought a lawn sprinkler for the kids to use to run through out in the parking lot to help stay cool. We have a very small complex with only 9 units, so the parking lot isn't like a busy parking lot. Everybody is at work during the day, except me and the other retired lady downstairs. The kids loved it. We also bought them those water balloons that self inflate and detach for the kids to play with too. They had a ball the other day between the sprinkler and the balloons. We had to stay outside, though when they were through to pick up the remains of the plastic balloons, so that they didn't mess up the parking area. I don't want anything to make management take away that privilege for the kids. They had fun and my neighbor who is on vacation this week had his kids out there too. It was nice having another adult to talk to during the day, as they played. I am usually the only one who is home during the day and it gets lonely.

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend. Sending positive energy and emoticon to all that need them. I am having a great summer and I hope that all of you are too. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Audrey, I don't know what to tell you... I don't know how to deal with problems like that. I just would calmly talk to him and tell him how I felt, but I'm sure you've done that already to no avail.

Karri, you're welcome! Angela is such a dear to me, too! How is Hope doing now? Angela is begging for love, so I'm half typing, half petting lol. One hand typing one petting. It's a learned skill, but I'm still not good at it. Okay, she just went to my legs for a bit. Hopefully Hope is getting along well!

So I've been just dealing well for the most part. My weekend was... crazy to say the least. I think most of you heard about the shooting at the Trader Joe's in LA on Saturday. Well, that's about a half mile from my house, and I was literally almost there at that time! I was thinking I needed chia seeds and almost walked there, but then decided against it. I got a text from a friend a couple minutes later saying my friend got off work early and plans had changed, and to go downtown sooner. So I got ready fast, and as I was driving down one street, the car chase was happening on the street right next to me. Cop cars were coming down my street in the opposite direction trying to pass the guy on the way to Trader Joe's. So it really was close to home. I mean, I'm fine, I just got a lot of calls from friends worried about me, since it was so close to my house and not a lot of people knew I was downtown during the standoff. Lots of people I know shop there, and on Sunday at one of my groups we were decompressing about it. I've talked it out a lot, so I'm pretty okay. I still have a bit of anxiety when I hear a helicopter or a police car coming down my street, but other than that I'm good. That, I think, is normal considering the circumstances. I haven't been on since I've been going to a lot of groups and trying to keep busy. Overall, though, I'm okay.

Rissa, thank you. I wrote a blog on how I may not be where I want to be, but I am not going to change my goal, I'm going to alter what I'm doing and just try to get as close to it as I can.

URBANAUDREYE emoticon I have two girls and they get like that. I'm usually the one dealing with it too. No fun.

I've found that if I'm crying or making a sad noise, Hope (puppy) is all over me in a heartbeat. Licking,crawling, sniffing, trying to lick away tears and sometimes crawling on my head trying to find my face, lol. She's a sweetheart. We almost had a Major Oops today. One of the kids left out a pink rubber toy. Guess what she threw up? Only she tried to eat it again, so I had to stick my fingers down her mouth and get it out. I hope I got all of it. It was enough that she would have to have surgery if she hadn't thrown it up. Major talk with the kids about this. I would be devastated to lose her after just getting her!

I'm frustrated! The girls have been super moody and I'm so over it. Rob just walks away from the situations and leaves me to handle it. When is it my turn to walk away?

Karri, don't "should" all over yourself! You feel how you feel, and that's perfectly fine. Don't try and make yourself feel any way other than how you feel. If you feel sad with Hope, you feel sad with Hope. She's not going to cure all your depression. ((hugs)) I feel sad with Angela around a lot, and she's a support animal as well. Train Hope to not sleep on your face... what you do now is what she's going to want to do when she's big! Angela sleeps on my bed, but she's small so she can get away with it.

I'm feeling good today. I went to therapy, did a mystery shop, some yard work, sold my giant teddy bear (which I've been trying to get rid of for a long time), and now I'm relaxing at home, watching TV. I need to eat something, because I'm hungry, but I'm feeling good. Not too good, I don't think, but I feel good. I sure hope I sleep tonight... that's going to be my indication of if I'm manic or not.

I am worried about Angela, though.. she's acting funny. I'm going to keep an eye on her and see. If she's still acting funny on Wednesday, then Thursday she's going to the vet. She's just asking for more attention than normal, and then she was twitching a bit like she had fleas. She doesn't have fleas as far as I know, though, so I'm a bit worried. I'll try and keep you guys updated.

You are absolutely right, it is her loss! Glad you are doing better.

Lost a lot of sleep last night, had strange dreams and then Hope woke up and did NOT want to be in her kennel, so we eventually ended up on the couch, which did not work that well either, since she wanted to sleep on my face, lol.

Took a long nap today but got a lot done too. Hope had her puppy visit and she is in perfect health. I just can't take her to parks like I had hoped to do because parvo is really bad around here.

Feeling depressed and feeling guilty that I am depressed. I have this puppy who is going to be my service dog that I've been dreaming about for years... I should be happy.

Re: Marijuana:

Marijuana is legal for everyone (adults) here. I can go to a store down the street and buy it without a problem since I'm over 21. I have a card, for medical use, so I get it cheaper. If you have bipolar, here in CA, you can get a card. I get migraines, too, and I find that it helps. My sister in law introduced me to it when I had a migraine so bad that even morphine wouldn't work (I was in the ER in Miami, and they tried everything legal there, I flew here to LA for my mom's funeral) and she gave me some pot. It took it away! So from then on, I was a believer in medical marijuana. I would much rather have some pot than be addicted to morphine! I don't do it often since I don't like the way it makes me feel. There are two types of marijuana- Indica and Sativa. I get them confused, but one makes you paranoid and one takes away pain. I use the one that takes away pain. I think it's Sativa. I use gummies when I'm not on my diet, and when I am, I normally don't do it. If I have to, then I vape a bit of it. My SIL has a vaporizer, so I just bring my stuff over her place and smoke it. Pot is cheap here, but I haven't bought it since it became legal in January. That's how little I smoke it. But it does take away the pain, so I use it in moderation.

Karri: I'm so happy for you! Hope is a great addition to your family! It sucks that your friend is moving away, but I know that new ones will come into your life. I know that Hope will help you so much!! ((hugs))

I'm okay today. This girl totally messed me up for like 10 minutes, but I got over it. I didn't feel safe going out tonight since I've been manic, so I told her (she knows I'm bipolar) and she sent me this weird texts ("ok well maybe some other time then have a good day" then I say I'll tell her another day, then "Have a good one bye" then I say sorry, then she's like "It's okay, we met once/ Have a good life" and then I think she blocked me. I replied "We can hang out again / I'm not trying to ditch you / I'm really serious / I like you / You are cool / I'm just having a bad time" then I decided f-- it and I wasn't going to waste my time on her anymore. But she was freaking out over nothing. I just told her I was manic and that I was weird tonight. I wanted to hang out with her again, but if she was really my friend she would have talked to me this week and found out that I've been manic and that I've been weird. Oh well. It's her loss!!

Deb, they just approved medical MJ for use here in my state too, for specific things. My husband wants me to try it, but I'm nervous to try it.

Getting Hope was wonderful. She is such a tiny puppy, compared to how big I thought she would be! And having her in the car helped so much with anxiety on the way home (Downtown Atlanta traffic in rush hour!!). She's a handful, but she's such a sweetie.

I don't know how to not slid into depression either. I'm just trying my best to stay positive and look at the bright side of everything. It's not really working. I said goodbye to my best friend today, she's moving to Kansas. Of course we will keep in touch, but it is not the same. I have a migraine that is keeping at a just barely untolerable level, but DH is taking a nap so I don't want to wake him so I can lay down. And I managed to hurt my knee, the one I just had surgery on, so I'm having to baby it. Today has been quite the day. But I have Hope, and she keeps doing little things to make me smile, even through the pain.

I see my therapist Wednesday and she said I could bring my pup as long as I take plenty of pee pads as well, lol. I'm so thankful she is so understanding!

Audrey,

I use both the oil and the flower, but I find that the oil at higher THC and CBD levels helps the best. I try to get a percentage of at least 85. It is a different sort of effect. It is not stoney, just relaxing. At least that is how it works for me. It takes the edge off and it cuts the pain. Flower is good if I can't get the oil, but here an eighth and a gram cartridge both cost about the same. So, I normally use the oil. I hope that helps you out. I hope that it works for you. It doesn't take a half hour to kick in either. It starts right away. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Deb, I'm trying. I am going between mania and normal. I was on the phone with a friend of mine here on Spark (but not in this group since she's not bipolar), and she heard me go back and forth between normal and mania twice. I started manic, talking fast, then I calmed down, was talking normal and having a normal conversation, then started laughing for no reason and went manic again. I took my meds and calmed down again. I'm not working, per se, I just do little side jobs here and there.

Karri, I get numb a lot, too. I don't know how to feel a lot of the time and I have to journal just to get out my feelings. Did your DD know about your fear? I get the weird fears thing, so don't worry about it. I don't know how to stop myself from sliding into a depression, so I can't help you on that one. My therapist and I talk about it, but I haven't figured it out yet.

I have a date(ish) tomorrow, and I don't know what to do. I almost want to cancel, since I'm really out of it, but I don't have the guts. I want to go out and have fun anyways. She and I were the one who had the date on Saturday (the weird girl), but she just wants to be friends. I don't know if it's a date or not, but last week it was supposed to be a date. I look crappy anyways. The girl I like had to work yesterday so we couldn't hang out, which is good because I went manic. I was crazy. I'm a lot better today and I see my psych on Tuesday. I tried for Monday, but the last appointment was taken a half hour before I tried to set it. *sigh*

Audrey, I hope things get better for you, praying for you!

Rissa, glad you got some sleep. No shopping for sure, I'm banned from shopping right now to because I want to buy everything on my wishlist for Hope (puppy). Hope you are feeling better soon

Deb, park time sounds great, we have been doing that as well, but mainly to spend time with my BF who is moving to Kansas. Mainly the lake beach and the splash pad.

I'm sinking into a depression, I'm hoping that Hope will help me get out of it. I've been numbing out, like my emotions just vanish, whenever something that requires an emotional response pops up, or when my emergency reactions should kick in. My DD hid in my shower and jumped out at me. One of my anxieties is axe murders doing that (ridiculous I know, but anxiety is anxiety) and I just went completely numb. No reaction, no scream nothing. Not even an elevated heart rate, my emotions just blanked out. So I started writing down examples of times this has happened and other things I need to bring up with my therapist. I missed seeing her this week due to the surgery, which really sucked because I'm not doing well. When I'm not numb from reacting to things, I am sky high anxiety non-stop for 3 weeks now, and sliding into a depression. Slowly, but it's like I can feel myself slipping and there is nothing I can do to stop it and it's so frustrating.

Any way, I'm hoping that getting the puppy, Hope, will help. I hope I don't go numb when I see her. I want to feel all the feels.

I'll post a picture of her as soon as I can.

Good morning ladies !!

Karri, Good luck with your recuperation and recovery from your knee surgery. Nerve blocks are great pain controllers. I hope that when it wore off you weren't and aren't in any severe pain. I know that the time is short before your dog makes an appearance and you get really busy with training him and just letting him grow up and be a dog. I hope that your knee isn't a barrier to your training sessions. Praying for a swift recovery and a pain free recuperation.

Audrey, I get horrible migraines too, so I can feel your pain - literally. Mine do respond to cannabis therapy, but not everyone has that remedy available for them to use. I tried everything else to try and get relief and that is still the best pain relief that I have found. I think that it is unfortunate that cannabis isn't recognized officially for all the good that it does and that people can't get over years of prejudice to use and make legal something that can be so good for you. I hope that the kids get under control, so that they do not drive you crazy. I hate having to deal with Micah when I have a migraine.

Rissa, It sounds like you are getting on your feet in LA these days. You are looking for a relationship, so you must have bounded back after you left Geo. It is nice seeing you strike out on your own this year and make so much progress. You are in CoDA and you are working now. Those are two wonderful steps to take while getting well after so much trauma and drama, in Florida. I know that leaving was one of the hardest things that you've ever done. So KUDOS for getting your life back in order and getting back on track !! I wish you great luck with a new relationship. I hope that the steak was good !!

I am just treading water here. There is not much to do. Jeni was off last week and took care of Micah herself for the most part, so I haven't had much to do since the 4th. She just went back to work this week full time, again. So, once again I have Micah during the day. We do a lot of park going and playground playing to keep him outside and doing healthy things. Going to the park has been a Godsend while they have been trying to rebuild this upper deck here at home. It is noisy, dusty and dirty. They have been working on this for the past four weeks and they are almost finished, I think. It will be so nice when they are done. The construction and the noise have really bothered Micah. He hates the noise of the drills and the saws along with all the hammering they do. So, we vacate and go to the park where he can run to his heart's content and have his pick of playmates. We go and stay for most of the day. I take snacks, food and water and we make it an adventure.

I hope that you are all in good space. Larissa, I hope that you have better luck sleeping than you have been. It is not fun to be dithering back and forth between mania and normalcy. Have a wonderful weekend and be safe in all this heat. Be sure to drink your water. Sending positive energy and emoticon to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Audrey, I'm sorry that you aren't feeling better! Kids can be a pain sometimes!

Karri, I hope you feel okay! I've never had a nerve block, but I sure hope that your surgery went well and you are free from pain soon!

I'm okay. I'm trying not to be a wreck. I'm waiting to hear from a girl I like, and she hasn't responded. She was supposed to come over today, and she isn't responding. I have stuff that needs to be cooked, and I have to be in Hollywood early today, so that sucks even more. I don't know why Sandra has to be in the Center at 3:30 instead of 5, but oh well. I have to cook my steak soon. I'm just kinda free writing. I'm hungry, so I'm going to cook that steak soon. It should be defrosted. It's not that hot, but it's still hot (like 90). I slept last night, which is good because I went manic Tuesday night and didn't sleep. Yeah, that was bad. Oh well. I'm still a bit hypomanic, but at least I slept. No shopping for me today.

Unfortunately, not feeling any better yet. Every time it starts to get a little better, one of the kids throws a tantrum and it pushes it back into full swing. Currently trying to figure out what to make for dinner when standing is making my world spin. Maybe I'll stick with PB&J and a salad.

Happy healing from your surgery. I hope you remain relatively pain free after the nerve block wears off.

Rissa, hope CoDA went well!

Audrey, hope you are feeling better!

Had my knee surgery, feeling no pain thanks to a nerve block, but that is supposed to be wearing off any time now. I'm stuck on the first floor till DH gets home, need him to be my back up support in case I stumble. I dislike being on crutches!

Anxiety didn't bother me at all yesterday at my surgery - I went numb instead. Not good. Gotta get in early as I can with my therapist, going numb, for me, is a bad thing.

Karri, Hope is cute! I don't mind making small talk, it's just that the date went on forever and I didn't know what to say by the end. At least I didn't feel triggered by her. That was the important thing. She seems nice, just a bit weird.

Mitzy, I used to have bad anxiety, and sometimes it comes back. I might have to deal with it today driving. I have to get used to merging on this one section of street. It almost always gives me an anxiety attack. I don't know why. People sometimes give me anxiety, but not as much anymore. As for sharing your problems, you can talk about them here. This is a safe space, but only share s much as you feel comfortable doing. I don't want you to feel pressured into sharing more than you want to. Just know we have a lot of the same issues!

I'm about to go to CoDA... I am doing good today so far. I had a cPTSD episode last Tuesday and missed it, and last Sunday I forgot the phone list. I've been out of spoons lately, but today I seem to have spoons (it's a mental health analogy for those who don't know it. If you have spoons, you have energy to do stuff). I just need to leave the air conditioning of my room to get some water and print the phone list. I've had a rough week- a bit of wanting to die for a bit, but then it passed fast. I'm okay- if it gets bad, I go to the hospital in the blink of an eye. No worries about me, please. I will be okay. I refuse to die by suicide. I just got hopeless, and I journaled about it, figured out all my triggers and all of that. I'm doing a lot better today so far. I just need to get out of bed lol. I already got up, had my coffee, eggs and pills, so I'm good.. it's just that my room is the only place in the house with AC. It is "cooler" today clocking in at 98 (Friday was 112, yesterday was 104), but I still need that AC. Okay, I'm going to get up now, get some cold water from the fridge, print the phone list, and get ready to go to CoDA :)

I don't like to share much because I feel like I have too many troubles that no one really wants to hear. I don't want to go to places to meet people because I don't want to share anything about myself. People ask questions which puts me on the spot. I even dread going to get a haircut or to the dentist for the same reason. They always want to make small talk and ask about your family etc.

I can empathize with those of you who have anxiety because I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder to go along with the Bipolar I Disorder. I am a chronic worry-a-holic. This has gotten worse with age along with the Bipolar. I am 59.

If nothing ever changed there'd be no butterflies.

Figuring out what to talk to people about is hard for me too. I have a few things going on and I feel like I talk about them too much because it's all I have going on to talk about.

I posted a pic of my pup on my last blog: Service Dog Update. Her name is Hope, because she is my hope to be able to have more independence and get out more once she is trained as my service dog. Will take anywhere from a year to two, usually in between, before she is ready to go out and about with me as my service dog. I get her Friday and I can't wait!

Went to church today for the first time in a while, was so anxious I was very distractible and couldn't pay attention well. DD was having bad cramps so we left early. Am glad we did, I'm not sure I could have handled the small talk after church is over. I probably would have made a run for it, and I always feel like that makes me look like I don't want to get to know anybody. I do, but ya'll know how difficult it is.

I fixed it, Mitzy! I know what you mean by lack of interests... I don't have many. I don't know what to talk to people about.

I had a date today, and the movie was sucky (The First Purge), but I knew it would be. The date was okay.. She and I talked a lot, which was nice, but at the same time there were no sparks. Maybe it builds over time, but she's not the long-term kind of relationship kind of girl (she said the only girl she'd want to marry was this one celebrity) so I don't know what to think. I was trying to make small talk and it was hard. She kept asking where I met my friends, and I said support groups and sports groups lol. I finally told her at the end I was in CoDA, but that didn't seem like a deal breaker to her. She seems okay, and we do have a second date, but just no chemistry yet. She didn't even want a hug, but it was over 100 degrees and she was wearing a hoodie (she said she didn't want to get a sunburn). Just kinda weird.

Bumping this UP because I almost didn't see it. I don't post much but I try to read now and then. I take my medication like I'm supposed to do. It keeps me stable but I have no motivation or interests to speak of. My family keeps me busy though.

Karri, sounds like you are going to have a lot of fun! I know you can do it! Just try and think of the positives! I would love to get a puppy, but Richard won't let me right now. So I just have my Angela.

Deb, it sounds like you are having fun with no responsibilities!

I'm doing okay. It was 94 today, and it's going to be 107 tomorrow!!! Yes, that's my neighborhood, too! Local weather :( I'm going to try and stay in my room with the air conditioning on. It doesn't feel that bad right now.. I'm just in my room with the fan on. I may have to do something for Angela, but I'm not sure. I'm leaving soon, so I have to figure it out. My friend Sandra has to go to the Center, so I get free parking again.

Okay, I just saw a picture of my mom when she was young and I'm crying a bit now. I have to go. It's a good cry, but it's hard. ((hugs to me))

Karri, good luck with the rest of this month and the beginning of next month. You sound as if you are super busy this next month. Good luck with the puppy. I'm sure that you will love him a lot and he will love you a lot too. Your training sessions will really help you bond with your pup. Do you have a name for him? Maybe I just missed it. I hope that your month, while busy is enjoyable.

Rissa, good luck with your speech when you talk this next week. It is important to share with the group. I hope that the fence is almost finished, if not finished and that you are not so terribly hot the rest of this week. We are going to be 86 today, but it will go back to the high seventies tomorrow.

I am enjoying the second day of my vacation while my daughter and grandson are at the beach for a couple of days. I have no dinners to cook, no house to clean, because there is only me and no other obligations to attend to today or the rest of the week for that matter. It is going to be a relaxing week for me. With Jeni home, then my duties with Micah fade and she and he will spend time together.

I hope that you all have a pleasant weekend coming up. Make today count !! Be productive and thrive. Sending positive energy and emoticon to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Prayers for you speaking next week Rissa, I hope that things go well for you.

I'm freaking out inside about the rest of the month. It's so packed! Next week I have knee surgery and then 2 days later get my puppy, I'm thrilled about those, but the next week starts the none-stop go-go-going. Some things I can prepare for, like the friends coming to stay with us; just clean the house and buy air mattresses for them. But some things like going to Drum Core International (DCI) Atlanta - for 8 hours - there is not much preparing to do for things like that. I want to go, but I know it is going to be difficult.

Audrey, do what's best for you and your family. I hope they understand!

Deb, I only managed 30 minutes of exercise today, and my Fitbit clocked in 56 yesterday, but did more I know, so kudos to you for getting in all your 120!

It's going to be kinda hot here, but not that bad. Heat comes on Friday for us! It's going to be 105 then! So I'm just going to stay inside on Friday and Saturday. I had a bad anxiety attack today, and so instead of going to CoDA, I'm sitting at home instead. I feel kinda bad, but I just had to listen to my inner child. I was freaking out with just Richard talking on the phone (him being a man and being triggered by men right now) and there are some really, let's say, strong(?) men personalities there on Tuesdays. One triggered a friend of mine last week, and she's not going tonight, either. So lots of people aren't going tonight. But I'm just trying to get through tonight. I'm speaking next week, so I have to go. It's going to be hard, but I just have to get through the next couple of weeks. The 12th is my hospitalization anniversary, so I want to push past that date, too.

We're supposed to have thunderstorms tomorrow, and we're in the middle of a heat advisory, so I don't know if walking to the fireworks is going to be a good idea for us. Last year, since I was ready to pop we opted to enjoy a movie at the very empty theater. Xena saw Incredibles 2 last week though, so it looks like Jurassic World is our option. I'll take it, and I'm certain the kids will enjoy it also. Even the baby has a fascination with dinosaurs. We did our own fireworks in my father-in-law's backyard this past weekend, and I got pretty bored (and irritated with the mosquitoes eating me alive) by the end. Colt and Isis both passed out cold while Rob finished the rest of them up outside with Xena and a few of their friends.

Rissa,

That is strange. I would call them and straighten out the interview thing. It sounds like they aren't very coordinated. It does sound like a most bizarre interview. Have a better day today!

Nothing going on here today. Again, I am going to just pay bills and straighten the house around when Jeni and Micah are gone today. I need to vacuum in the worst way. I hate a messy house. I am watching the tail end of THE BLACKLIST on Netflix and then I have a couple of other series that I have followed, that I can watch when THE BLACKLIST is over. Other than that I have nothing to do except get in my 120 minutes worth of exercise for the day. I have already done my strength training for this morning. It will be hot here today and I am ready for it. I only have my walking that is left to be done. Have a great day out there today !! Sending positive energy and emoticon to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

I had my job interview today. The interview went okay. It was a bit weird, honestly.. The guy just kept on trying to answer the questions for me, which was really strange. I will find out tomorrow if I get the second interview or not. I did get an email today when I got home saying I missed the interview, which was even stranger. I have no idea what is going on with this company. I don't know if I really want to work for them. It just seemed really weird. Mansplaining, if you've ever heard the term, for the interview, and then I don't know what happened with the email I got when I got home saying I missed it.

Good morning ladies,

I have no plans for the Fourth, either. My daughter and her son are going to the beach on the Fourth of July, but I will stay at home and watch the fireworks that can be seen above the tree tops. We can't have M-80's and other fireworks like that, but they allow sparklers and poppers for the kids. Micah has just turned 7, so he will be happy with a couple of sparklers and the popper pods. They will probably stay and watch the fireworks at the beach, rather than try to drive home for the ones downtown. I don't really care if I see fireworks or not. It is not required for a Forth of July celebration. I will make myself a hamburger patty and call it good in front of Netflix on the TV. It will be a quiet day for me. I might go out with a friend for a drive in the afternoon, but that is not written in stone. I hope that you all have a great and safe Fourth of July. Sending positive energy and emoticon to all that need them. Deb emoticon

Faeth, that's cool! I never got into WoW, but my brother and SIL are. I just don't play games at all, or else I'm sure I would! It seems kinda fun. I played it for like 5 minutes helping my brother. I would rather watch a game than play it, myself. Have fun!

I personally can't really watch the fireworks. They make me mood swing really fast. I don't get really "manic" per se, but I do get high and then crash really fast. I didn't know what was going on for many years, but I knew I was bipolar at the time. I would always get really down and cry on the way home from fireworks displays, but only later on in my 20's did I figure out it was a bipolar thing. So I don't watch fireworks anymore. I don't know if anyone else here can relate.

I myself will be celebrating the 4th as I have for almost a decade now. I play World of Warcraft and every hour at the top of the hour they have fireworks.

In Spokane Washington it is illegal to shoot off fireworks the only place you can see them is in the very crowded Riverfront Park. That said I hate crowds and I don't drive in order to get away from Spokane County to see others shooting off fireworks.

So I just watch them in game which isn't so bad because I can watch them as many times as I want to. Vs. the 20 minutes of display that goes on at Riverfront.

I don't have plans for the 4th either, but I imagine we will go see fireworks somewhere.

I agree, it does not feel like it should be July yet. Wow.
