Over Thanksgiving, I took some much needed R&R…much needed is the understatement of the century! I saw family and friends, and beautiful scenery, stuffed my face, and slept in…took a vacation from everything…but when I came back, I did yard work, put up our Christmas tree, and started on my final…I am up to my eye balls in papers, but I am at least started on them. When I first left I was really uncomfortable being away from all of my habits…but when I let the vacay soak in…suddenly I started to feel like a human…like I matter, like my feelings matter and I am not just a horse and pony show that has to over achieve to death, to feel like I am good enough. Seeing my extended family was a feeling of appreciation that no one else gives me…my local family is jaded by everything…plus our David & Goliath life experiences, distracts us, often. I have become wish-washy about my ambitions, because someone has made it clear to me they want to sabotage me,before I even get started…and this someone has the key to my Pandora box of secrets…now everyone has secrets…and while I am pretty upfront about myself…these are things that involve other people. …anyway, I needed the rest…now I need to screw my head back on so I can hunker down and work like it’s nobody’s business. I am so proud of how beautiful our little house looks….I am attaching pictures of all my fun times with family and our tree!
