It sure has been quiet on the board lately, which got me to wondering what everyone has been up to.

I've been super busy with the new little guy and its about to get even more hectic with Dh having shoulder surgery tomorrow morning. But I'm still checking in every so often.

I am so grateful each and everytime I find myself in a situation that feels like too much to handle, but I still there and take a deep breath and know that I can handle anything. I can do it all by myself and do it well. And I have no doubt in my ability to do so at all.

I look around at everything I have and everything I've accomplished for a moment in the morning and at night and I feel so proud of myself and grateful. And I can't help but smile.

I am around just haven't had a lot to say. But there is good news ds has made it though one of his trigger dates without an explosion and this one has been going on since we were with his father!! This one started out as the start of school but also ended up being when we left SC. Last year at this time was when I first called the police on him but this year we tried something new and no explosion!! I am so proud of him and hoping this keeps up.

My youngest is loving 4th grade. She gets up without a problem and does all her homework. It's a beautiful thing seeing as both have been problems for us in the past.

My aww moment was a week ago. I stopped seeing the guy in PA and am back with another ex that his only problem is we both are insecure and keep messing things up but things are going better for now. Last week on the way back from his weekly bowling thing he hit a pot hole to hard and ended up with a flat tire. He kept telling me he was sorry. I laughed. My ex husband would have found a way to blame me and would have been screaming at me. Guy I was with could change a tire but had no tire iron, something else that would have been my fault.

My freedom.

The ability to say "No",

The ability to choose.

To laugh.

To cry.

To be Silly!

Just to be.

Free!

I used to take joy in little things and it upset Pinnoke so bad! He hated my optimism. Now that's one of the biggest things - my feelings are mine. Little things: driving the direct route even when it takes 60 seconds longer; laughing at my own mistakes; pink details and lace curtains in my bedroom; decaf; writing characters I like without anyone to criticize. Just a host of things.

It's so true, they want/need to control Our Emotions/Our Feelings but they can't.

They don't like our optimism.

They try to crush us tell us we cannot do do anything on our own that we need them.

Truth is they are the ones who need us.

We will be perfectly fine without them.

When we figure that out they have LOST control.

Little by little it slips away and so does our fear of them.

We begin to realize it doesn't have to be like this, his way or the high-way.

I took the high-way.
