  • It felt good. I slept like a frakking baby last night. The stress has pretty much lifted from my shoulders.

    As of Monday, I will be back on EMF. I'm making stuff tomorrow to get ready for EMF on Monday.

    I did go to a local Goodwill store and got some cute clothes for the new job. Our Goodwill stores here will sell stuff from Target that they can't sell so I got a really pretty orange and fuschia sheath dress, a coral and orange skirt, matching shirt and a layered black skirt with a funky black and grey top to wear with it and a pair of brown kitten heels for $21. Not a bad day of shopping.

      • Today's been busy and it's only 10:15AM. Been up since around 6:30AM, I had an IEP meeting for Heather. She's no longer needing speech services anymore. Caitlyn has her OAA testing at 1PM today. Her Grandma may come with us and we may do lunch beforehand. I've done a load of laundry, ate some bone broth and weighed myself. My weight is up to 207 from 199. I was expecting it to be higher but it wasn't. I was super bloated yesterday but then again, I've been eating grains like its going out of style the past week. The pimples were horrible as well.

        • OMG my face is in horrid shape right now! Between eating grains and sugar and the vitex changes, I am a mess!

          Which job are you starting on Thursday? Last I knew, you were still entertaining both options. Hooray for quitting and stress being reduced!

          • I'm going to be the Patient Care Coordinator or PCC at a HearUSA location in Heath, OH. Not too far from my home. Buckeye finally called me today to give me my start date and I told them I've accepted a position with another company. No more call center work for me. I'm sort of nervous about working with the public again, but I think it's time to face those fears. I'm hoping I won't have to deal some of what I've dealt with in a previous position where I worked with the public. One very nice thing is that I won't have to deal with office drama anymore. Clint keeps me telling me its a good change. I'm hoping it is

            • yea for quitting that horrible job! I am so glad you could do it. Anytime you can get away from office drama you are better off.

                • Today is my final day off before I start my new job. The last day for taking Caitlyn out to Newark for her OAA testing. After talking in the car with her and having brunch with her and the MIL yesterday, I have learned several things from my 14 yo. #1) She's EXTREMELY mature for her age and wise beyond her years. #2) Out of all of her friends, she is the only one who hasn't touched drugs and had sex yet and has no desire for either. I love her reasoning for not doing either. In regards to not doing drugs, her theory is why do drugs as when the high is gone, your problems will still be there. You'll still have your pain. Find a way to deal with it that is constructive. In regards to sex, she doesn't want a baby, STD and she knows that sex isn't love. She's actually starting to make plans for a future that is pretty bright.

                  Tristan is starting to make me nervous. The more her body changes, it seems as if she is losing her confidence. She's still doing well in school, but I don't think she likes the fact that she is getting to be a very beautiful young lady and the fact that boys are noticing her. We went on a walk last night and some eighth grade boys she knows from school were playing basketball nearby and she didn't want to walk past them. It took about 5 minutes of convincing from Caitlyn and myself that it will be ok. I had to tell her a story from my past and that helped her. When we made it around the path, Tristan and I were talking and I noticed that some of the boys started talking together and were looking at Tristan. I gave them the look that said, "you mess with my daughter, you mess with me and I will hurt you." They stopped looking after that.

                  Clint seems to be depressed. I have this nagging suspicion that something has happened at work and he won't tell me about it. He came home last night, went back to the room and barely said two words to me. I asked him how work was and he didn't respond. He didn't really touch me like he normally would and he didn't sleep at all last night. He actually considered calling off work today but he needed some tools he has at work for a side job so he just decided to go in and say screw it. I don't have a good feeling about him and am worrying about him.

                  • Wow so much going on. I hope Clint is okay. Your daughter sounds amazing. You have done a good job. Tristan will get there too. It so hard to be that age with all the changes. Maybe some extra daughter-daddy time would help?

                    • Daddy daughter time is kind of a funny idea for my husband. He hasn't done anything just him and the girls since they were about 8. The most he does with them now us watch Doctor Who with them. Maybe jokes around with them. That's about it.

                      A few weeks back, Tristan was telling me how some eighth grade boy told her she was pretty and she went off on him. She told him she didn't like him and that he's rude. Ever since then, he's been up in her business. She's frustrated with the whole situation. I told her that she should just ignore the boy or tell him "that's nice" and let it be. I told her by saying what she did, the boy is looking at her as a challenge and will do anything to make her crack.

                      • I hope your hubby is okay.

                        It sounds like you have wonderful patience with Tristan. The stories you tell about your girls are truly inspiring. You sound like a great mom to me .

                          He's doing better. When I was with Caitlyn at her last day of state testing, he was texting me saying today was a better day and hopefully, he'll sleep better. I have a feeling we'll be out by eight.

                          Thanks for the compliment NW. I try to be like the mom I didn't have but not cross that friend line. I don't want to be too angry, yet give good advise. I never really had that growing up so I'm hoping they don't have to go through 20 yrs of therapy.

                          • I strive to be a mom like you. Honestly. I want the kind of relationship with my kids that you have with yours.

                            Glad Clint is having a better day. I hope you are as well.

                            • I just woke up from a 90 minute nap after church today. I needed it. Not sure why I felt so tired, but I did. I'm going to make some chicken legs, tuna salad and get dinner going. Been a strange couple of days to say the least.

                                It took me a long time to be able just to say "thank you" to a compliment. I am glad that you are parenting well, not trying to be best buds. My mother always said she was raising future adults and gave us skills for that and we all turned out well. My sister was best friends with her kids and she has had nothing but problems.
                                Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
