Thanks for the Thanksgiving well wishes, everyone. Its been busy as of late. We are supposed to have a work Christmas dinner Monday night, but I'm not going. With some stuff happening at work, I'm afraid I'd go off on our District Manager so it's safer for me not to go. I'll put it to you this way. He's an incompetent douchebag with a Napoleon complex. Plus, it would be an hour and a half drive to the dinner from the office so I would rather not go. They are having the dinner in the Mansfield. OH area so us Columbus people and the Akron people can get together.
I've gone back to grain free as of Monday. Still working out the kinks but doing better. Now, if I could just sleep, I'd feel even better. A friend of mine does some work with essential oils and is working on helping me order stuff to help with sleep, allergies/asthma and carpal tunnel. My carpal tunnel is flaring up big time from knitting scarves.
This is something that is bothering me. How do I get more involved in the girls lives? Caitlyn is feeling especially left out. I've been sensing this for awhile now and the other night Clint asked me what I want for Christmas and I told him to surprise me, but he should at least take one of the girls shopping and I said Caitlyn would be a good choice. His response was,"she would drive me nuts". Caitlyn isn't that bad of a kid. She's got a good head on her shoulders. Caitlyn and I were talking last night and I asked her in general, how does she feel about her relationship with her dad and she sarcastically said, "who is that?" We kind of laughed and then she broke down a bit and said when she went to the fall weekend camp for her youth group last month, in their small groups, she said she actually feels like her dad doesn't love her anymore. She actually justifed this by saying that since her dad never had a relationship with his dad, it's not his fault. I'm trying to figure out ways to get them to interact. I know what it's like to have a dad, then not have one when you're young and I don't want her to have that hole in her heart as it's hard to fix. Plus, I don't want them to not have a relationship in 10-15 years. I could see it happening.
