These are the days that require the most simple mantras: we are warm...there is no war threatening us...we have food and clean water.

Maybe that can get you through February an inch at a time. So sorry to hear about all the stressors, hope my advice does not sound glib.

Christy.. you will make it. Somehow, somewhere, some way. The fact that youve made it to Elias's NINTH birthday alive and with your and Nick's sanity (mostly) intact gives evidence to your resilient nature. I know firsthand how much a school counselor is needed, because as a substitute teacher for the past 3 years, ive been on the front lines, and i have seen a LOT of hardship and conflict with the youth of today. More than once ive encountered students who are acting out because of stuff going on at home. They need help soo much..offering up prayers for your job security..


PS.. BTW did you ever get a chance to see a uro and get to the bottom of the bladder issue? keep me apprised if you can :)

That is A LOT of stuff going on over there!! Thinking of you and waiting hopefully for it all to fall into place! Thanks for still posting so we know what's happening.

Wish I had something constructive or inspiration to say but I don't just wanted to say that I'm sorry and that all those stressors totally suck. I really hope that you're playing hockey - I bet that would be a great release!

As always, wishing you the best of luck.

I'm trying to make a big decision regarding my career and as stressed as I am about it, I am trying to keep the perspective that things could be so much worse. Easier said than done, I know...

So sorry for what you are going thru right now! Sending positive thoughts to the whole family!

Thanks everyone and sorry about this blah post, more of a throw-up of my stress than a story but just wanted to quickly share with my readers, my community of support, what's up. I didn't want to write about Nick, b/c its his info to share, until he told me he could. His surgery is on the 20th and we should hear about the job by this Friday. I won't know about mine till May. But yes, I am playing hockey and when a player i know on an opposing team said her bench was talking about how hard I hustle I told her,"I just have a really stressful life." Thank goodness for skates and rinks and yes, Danielle for a warm house and the love that I'm surrounded by each and every day.

Rob, did see uro and everything seems to be working correctly but we think its a matter of his brain and body communicating. Still in pull-ups...

We are home to support in any way that is helpful. We love you....Olive is ready to spend a week here to help with the surgery recovery. Hugs

I tracked back to find out what was going on with Nick and found this post I missed. Oh, I just want to give you a huge hug and promise everything is going to be all right. I'm sending you so much love, like so many other people. And keeping you in my thoughts. When I think of you, from the very first time we met, I picture a golden glow around you, the aura of your incredibleness. I just wish I could do more to support you, and bring yummy food and your favorite beer. Love you!
