Tuesday's Totally Terrific

1. I am so grateful for falling asleep in my Lover's arms last night & sleeping thru the night and into the morning - it was the most peaceful, solid sleep I have had in days (used to be I would have said "a long time" but really I slept that way last time I was over here for more than a day or two)

2. I appreciate the silence & peace here, the kid-less stress-less -ness of it all right now

3. I am thankful for a place to rest my head & body and recharge during all the chaos someone else is trying to push onto me

Monday, again, blues again, Happy again

1. the dogs are very happy in the country & the family loves them, even the difficult one - he is just what their dog who is 2 months older needed - a buddy to chase & run around until they are exhausted with

2. Saturday night's Winter Solstice Celebration at Church was a-ma-zing! So glad I got to make it - I was 1/2 hour late since I ended up needing to drive out to the county with Mr Nice Guy to deliver dogs

Thursday Full Of Grats

1. Grateful daughter & son are off to the store for daily grocery run -- we have taken to only buying what we need for each day as we wind down here & know each day who will be home & eating what - saves money & there has been no waste or leftovers

2. Grateful for follow up phone call for a live in position (the hours are ONLY until 9 am) -- closer to the coast & the new day job, must get DL first for this job -- incentive ; )

Holiday Plan to Keep Sanity & Avoid Emotional Pitfalls

I have been doing lots of thinking and reading and re-evaulating.

I have had a difficult year; I want a NICE Holiday season. I do not want perfect; I do not want anything I have to work at. I do not want to be let down and I know about how setting unrealistic expectations is what causes the being let down feeling. I have learned this long ago. I have shifted my expectations and desires every year and I have dealt better as time goes by.

This year-- oh this year, sigh.
