Funday Friday #18

Oh, man. This has been quite the week. I’m not exactly firing on all cylinders today because I had a really hard time going to sleep last night. The cats (Tiger and Sushi/Mako) played a very large role in that until about midnight. But additionally, things that I had been trying to ride out for the last few weeks just kind of dumped on me this week, and I spent some time connecting dots. Also, I think much was easy to mask thanks to my “happy pills” so that I was reverting back into my old coping skills that quit being effective decades ago. And other stuff that is for a post of its own.

Anyway, big shout out to Petra for looking me in the eye and speaking some hard truth to me last night. And praying for me. Also, she needs to blog. 😉

Another shout out to Molly for listening to me dump a little the other day, and then praying for me. She is running her first half marathon tomorrow. GO MOLLY!!!!

For the second time in a week I had to change the wifi password over the kids not getting their work done. :sigh: Chad and I had a pretty good talk yesterday morning about school work in which there was no belligerence or threatening. I really love it when we can sit and talk to each other rationally. Jamie and I have mainly communicated through texting this week. I got a good laugh yesterday when I texted her the new password. She replied with “Can’t you not make stupid passwords?” No. 🙂 And that password got that stupid fox song out of my head finally. Until I just typed that. ugh.

I haven’t been to Al-Anon in like 3 weeks. So of course I have seen 2 people from my home group in the past week. The lack of attendance probably has a lot to do with my attitude this week. I did have a counseling appointment this week and it was terrible because I was all brain foggy and could barely make coherent sentences or say the right words. I did a lot of hand talking. I left so exhausted that I sat in my car afterword for a while recovering.

I’ve been eating and drinking like crap.

KitKat caught/killed another mouse in my office yesterday. I missed it which is fine with me.

Happy Friday!

    Hi there! Sounds like you have been having a really rough time girl! I am sorry to hear it but I am happy you have a good base support to ground you and the kiddos are shaping up a bit. I am glad you missed your cat killing the mouse in your coffee – UGH – I would want to miss that too!

    I will say a prayer for you and yours and all will come around a be fine again. It just takes time! God bless you all! 😉

    Martha, You have taken on so much this year. Home school etc. Do not be so hard on yourself. It sounds like you really do have Chad under some new influence.I will pray for God’s strength & wisdom to empower you to handle all your stress & major responsibilities. I am proud of you!
    Maybe you need some guitar therapy.

      Thank you Judy! I do have a lot of things on my plate. But I am also working on prioritizing and not trying to do everything. Because I can’t do everything. 🙂 Love you! :hugs:

  4. Sounds like a tough week, but sounds like you have some great outlets for coping and good friends.
