madaboutmoose's Journal, 19 February 2013

Tomorrow (Wednesday ) I start early so I thought I'd write something now. I know I won't have time in the morning.

Food was good today. No feeding myself to take care of stress. I'm happy about that. A busy day though. Ended up needing to buy a new battery for my car. Yikes! Picked up another new kid on my caseload. My caseload is growing quickly. Yikes! Also picked up a side job, helping CPS with a transition plan for a little one moving into an adoptive home. Yikes! Work makes me happy though. Even though I'm tired I feel very competent in my work. Nice contrast after a weekend of not feeling very competent at home. What does it mean when the Marriage Family Therapist is having marital difficulties? Yikes!

Anyway I am alive and kicking.

Grateful as always. There is always something to be grateful for. Today?

Getting a new battery in the car.
Being on the same page with DH in the budget department.
A day of healthy eating.
My clients. And my work.
A little new snow dusting the trees.
My bed

Sleep is calling me! Kindness. Patience. Prayer. Hope. And on I go.


Just catching up...been on a bit of a down spiral myself...<3 Hugs and love to you my friend!

Oh boy, have a good day, Carol. I find that starting early usually helps put things in the right direction. Your therapist is having marriage difficulties? Sounds funny, but it probably means nothing on her ability to help you guys get through your grief (stuff). Have a good day, my friend. Thinking fondly of you from out east.

Life is humbling. is it not? It's hard to step out of our humanity. We are such complex creatures that it doesn't take a lot to get us moving "sideways". Therapy ...... I would never trust a therapist who wasn't in therapy. It's hard to help others when one doesn't have a handle on oneself. We all could use some "objectivity" in our life. Please know that I applaud you for your effort.

It means we are all just people Carol with the same fears and problems. None of us are saved from it and you are wonderful to be such a helping and caring person. I know that your experiences are benefiting everyone you deal with. Hope you have a great Wednesday..

You sound stronger today. Taxes, yuck I hear you. I hope its better than you think it is. Guns - wow, it always surprises me when people have guns in their homes but each to their own, you do live in the middle of nowhere. Glad you are taking care of yourself as best you can. As always, one foot in front of the other, one breath at a time. Patience is a virtue I struggle with daily too :)

Thanks. Sorry I'm not going to have time to visit any of you today at your journal. Know that I am thinking about you and will catch up later this week.

Hi Carol, glad you have the happy distraction of your workload. I found marraige guidance a great help, but it takes two with the same agenda. So glad you are not using food to ease the present difficulties, that in itself is a big achievement. Have a good day Carol, much love Sazy xx
