BUT!

In the meantime:

I'll be venturing to Portland in 9 days, to see @Cate and the newest tiny cute thing that she just made.

I'm a tiny ball of sore muscles after sexy gym trainer kicked my ass in class last night.

I'm enmeshed in a Queer as Folk series re-watching flood. Marathon doesn't do it justice.

Stay tuned for...

One in which I lose a lot of family members, in a week.

As much as I'm not fond of depressive ranting blogs following each other, I'm venting, feel free to skip this and head to my older blogs including the fun and the lurid pictures...

On Monday, I start getting calls that my maternal grandmother is MIA from family members. My parents...

My condolences on your loss. I decided long ago to cut ties with my family. They are very disfunctional and don't really care about my well being so I decided it was best not to have anything more to do with them. I still think that families are important. I just wish I had a better one. Well anyway, take care and hang in there.

salome:

I'm glad you're getting the law involved. I know that it will be messy and drawn-out, but I'm glad that you'll get the money back and that your family will pay for what they did. That's unimaginably awful.

I am currently four days into my ten day vacation, the longest amount of time I've had to myself in over a year. I'm currently lazing about until I get bored of lazing about and want to return to work.

Attn all Californians: I am now utilizing my Driver's License, dragging the little brats about, so beware! I sometimes think I should...

Episode in which Maddigan wanders through life while working A LOT. And rambles on about it.

Times, they are a'changing at work. Many who are nifty and devoted enough know that I work in psychiatric residential care for kids; a group home for some pretty special kids. (I'd really love to post some of the Christmas pictures, as they are adorable, but privacy...

Knitting is an excellent teaching tool.
The Waldorf Schools use it to teach counting, addition/
subtraction to the K through 3 levels.
Chop-sticks can be bought by the dozen quite cheaply
and work until true knitting needles can be lined up.
Maybe in trade for helping out at sheareing time
a sheep or alpaca farm might give up some wool.
The 4-H might be a resource to tap.
Dollar Store or other discounted surplus store might
yield yarn or other fibers to use.
Good luck.

Fair warning, somewhat emo post.

I'm actually finding myself fairly sad that I only received one present this Christmas, instead of, really, the expression of excitement I had posted before. Maybe it's spurred on by watching the foster kids I work with unwrap fun wish after fun wish Christmas morning Which has led to self-analyzing. The shallow side would just love something, thing...

Five years ago after my home was devastated by Hurricane Rita and the girl I had been dating for three years broke up with me two weeks before Christmas, I woke up on Christmas morning all alone. I was camping out in the back room of my shop as Rita's destruction was so massive there wasn't any place available to rent and it was bitterly cold outside. I had no family in town after my parents died and all my siblings moved away to other states. At that point, I have to say it was the most alone and forlorned I've ever felt. It would have been just any other day and no big deal if it hadn't been Christmas. So I do understand. Somehow I got through that day and life has moved on. This year I had a pretty good Christmas. I'm back in my house rebuilt after $136,000.00 in damage was repaired. My son now lives with me and I have two roommates that are also my best friends!! This year we cooked a big Christmas dinner, exchanged gifts, and just hung out all day. It was nice, but I'll never forget that lonely Christmas day 5 years ago. Whatever doesn't kill us, makes us stronger.

Don't over (self) analyze. You'll drive yourself nuts. Trust me!

For the past couple of years i spent my christmas with my now ex-girlfrend and step-son. Being without them (or well..without Dylan, don't miss his mom at all) was scary for a bit. The trick for me was not to focus on what I was missing, or would have liked to have had, but on what I do have.

Rule #32: You gotta enjoy the little things.wink
