Checking in

Well, it's a mixed bag today.
  • I've decided I really need to focus on what's positive. So "no bad news" is what I'm keeping in mind.
  • Having said that, can I just scream a string of curse words? Once again my mom isn't bathed, and once again, I'm trying to shore up the badly sinking ship that is their finances, and once again I come across 10s of thousands of dollars of "assistance" to a family member. It's really hard to keep caring sometimes!!!
  • Had dinner/snack with my older son at 3:45 today. He's talking to me again. So relieved!
  • The sun is shining.
  • Did yoga with my boyfriend this morning.
  • Feeling really ready to ditch the "no carb left behind" diet. But tonight is bday night at my 12-step group. Can someone say "corner piece with frosting?" Yeah baby!

Just keep trying to do what you think is your best.

That's all you can do. You're not superhuman and shouldn't have to feel as if you need to be.

GOOD LUCK.

:-) :-).

Maybe getting someone to help with your parents will take a lot of pressure off you? Glad your son is talking to you again and you seem to be more up in spirit again...so, how many years are we celebrating? Congrats big time!!!
