  • Holy cow!!! Good to have that week behind you and find some kind of normal again!

    Tell honey that he is totally capable of taking care of his family - as he has so well in the past - he just has to make that connection with the right employer - and that takes time and effort. God has a plan...... and His timing is always perfect!

    Blessing to you and the family --- prayers for that connection to come soon! and congrats to the soon to be college girl!

    • Thanks, everyone, for your supportive comments. It really helps.

      Did NOT eat well yesterday. Shortly after my yummy, healthy breakfast (ground beef, onions, salsa, and cheddar) a friend of Honey's called with the news that he was being foreclosed on! We went over with burgers and chips to commiserate. Before we left, we saw the radiator was leaking onto the driveway!! Still plenty of liquid, so we went, but on Monday we'll have to take it in and say WTF!!! Hopefully, it is just a hose that needs to be tightened or something like that. In any case, it better not cost money. Grrr.

      So, I ate chips, and a burger bun, and baked beans, and then some stress ice cream. And some fudge.

      BUT, at least not so much that I felt ill. I'll consider it progress.

      Rather pathetic, that eating chips, and ice cream, and fudge, but not to the point of pain, is progress, but I'll take it.

      Also, our washing machine is not draining. We are diverting it to a tub and bailing.

      I feel like a soap opera. Oh, for the days when I would pose myself questions about the emotions of eating.

      Honey and I are going for a bike ride today.

      • I'm sure the bike ride will be good therapy. Your life right now sounds so much like what we went through a number of years ago. Our kids were also giving us grief and we both had health issues. I felt like I was living through an insurrection and being hit by both earthquakes and tornadoes. But we survived, regrouped, and despite current difficulties, are in a much better place now. I really don't know how I would have made it without the highly irrational sense of God's presence through the storm. It was all that kept me going sometimes.

        • Ditto what Judg says. Although we weren't suffering financial issues, we were suffering daughter issues and marital issues due the daughter issues not being addressed. We went through a very rough couple of years, and I very nearly walked out a couple of times. God very obviously turned us in the direction of a wonderful counselor who helped us deal with it all - and our marriage was saved. In the midst of the storm it feels like things couldn't possibly be any worse!!!

          Sending prayers and hugs to you!!!!

              • Thanks, Pebbles. I guess this is just a rough time.

                And thanks for the prayers, Tomi. It always helps to know others have you in their hearts.

                Even though things are rough right now, we are getting through okay, because Honey and I are together on it. The times when I have felt like 'we' were the problem, those were the toughest times. But, we got through those too!

                Just wish I could go and be with my aunt. That will have to happen in happier times.

                God is good, and always there. I don't talk much about religion in my journal, but God's presence is a great comfort.

                • I'm so sorry to hear about your uncle, and all the stuff hitting the fan at once. Some days, you really do wonder if life chose you as a punching bag.
                  I generally shy away from religious comments as my beliefs are not of the standard Abramic faiths. That said, sometimes, a belief in SOMETHING, anything, is all we have to get us through hard times.
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                    • I'm really sorry to hear about all this stuff, Sabine, and I wish I could offer more than sympathy. But I am glad you have your Honey and your family.

                      • Heehee. Naiadknight, you hit one of my sore spots when you said 'Abramic'. I am one of the wackos who believes that Abraham FAILED his test. I think he should have said 'up yours' to any God who asked him to sacrifice his son, and that God was probably thinking 'what the heck?!? when Abraham started going ahead with it. I could go on about this ad infinitum, but I believe I said I don't talk much about religion. Oops.

                        Thanks for the hugs, Judg. I never would have thought internet hugs could feel good, but they do!

                        Sympathy is good, Siobhan. It means a lot. And I am super glad for my Honey, too. He's not very emotionally verbal, but he knows how to give a reality hug.

                        Also, we watched movies back to back to back today, to take up any thinking space. By this evening I was able to talk about some good memories with my Onkel Karl without crying.

                          • Sorry to hear about the crazy shit storm you've had to deal with Sabine. I'm very truly sorry you're going through all this. I hope with all my might that SOMETHING good and positive and beneficial to your future comes to you soon. No one is more deserving than you. I get stressed and crazy just reading all the stuff you're going through and want to just throw in the towel for you. You're doing such an amazing job at keeping it all together and not losing hope. Stay strong. Big, hard, tight hugs to you.

                            • Whoops, sorry about the phrasing. Just meant to say I'm not one of the big 3 faiths.
                              Grief is grief, and at least you have someone you can share the memories with.

                                I am very upset. Also, thinking that this is just getting ridiculous.

                                I'll tell you about it later. Right now, I just want to say:

                                AARRRGH!!!!
