How's everyone doing today?

Let us know how you are doing.  Got any plans for the Labor Day weekend?  If you don't celebrate Labor Day, any plans for your weekend?

I'm doing okay...kinda just okay.  Some hot issues with MH that keep resurfacing.  He is a BIG F' BABY!  Ahhh...that felt good. And, I'm a dope for thinking they are ever going to change...ahhh, that doesn't feel so good.

We have a classic car show we attend every year a few towns over, and I think my girlfriend will be having a BBQ that day as well.  We'll take them both in...maybe.

group ((((hug))))

Hi Clarity!
I am having a hard time lately. Not A-related! Although, that seems enticing ...it really does. I realize that sometimes I choose to think about him and feel sad because it displaces the other thing that is bothering me in my life right now. Like I'd rather feel A-hurt than the other hurt. I am using that old A sadness and keeping it at the surface as a distraction! Is that odd? Does that make sense even? Hard to explain it. But I know that is what I am doing. My head goes there and it temporarily pushes everything else out of my head and it is a comfort.
I am SO ODD.
I have terrible coping skills :smileysad:
My in-laws are visiting town this weekend, they want to see the grandbabies. So perhaps H and I will go on a date. And there will be some BBQing in the mix of the weekend.

and you are not a dope. because they can't change at their core but they can change some behaviors/responses to better accommodate us :smileyhappy: it's true! our T said so! maybe in a few different words but...that's the general idea.

Hi Clarity,

I'm doing good.  Been off work all week, thought it would be tough for me this week with all the time on my hands, but was the complete opposite.  I don't know what it is, I'm really not sad this time.  I think I just know it had to end.  I do know this could change at the drop of a hat, so I'm going to just sit back and enjoy it.  Planned on going boating this weekend, but with rain in the forecast I don't think that will be happening.

Men can be such babies, I know.  I have to avoid my H everytime he gets sick because he acts like he's dieing.  Anyway, hope with whatever your MH is being a baby about has passed so that you can enjoy your weekend.

Meh. I've been better. Coming back from vacation sucks and I did have a lot of triggers last week. Thought I'd be further along by now.

I am 8 months NC today.

Sorry he is being a doofus, Clarity.

You know, I was going to respond to your "good man" thread the other day and say that I've got a perfectly good ninny, but I figured it would go against the spirit of the thread - so I didn't.
 
I understand Clar-shmar.  Mine acts like a child all the time - and wants to be treated like a delicate princess.  Sooo annoying, especially considering that I AM the princess.
 
Did you see that song that I posted on BC's thread on AYA?  It's my current empowerment/feel good song.
 
You know what else I did today?  I made amends with a friend that I had conflict with a few months ago .  That made me feel really good, too, especially since I wasn't the one who did wrong.  Life is too short to hold on to any kind of bad energy, especially with people who are good deep down.
 
Anyway, okay - I'm off to go press and fold my husband's pink panties so he can wear them later with his pretty frock....  Girl 3

OMG, girl....haven't you ever heard of the Bev-vie alert!?!?! When a poster is suppose to warn the audience...up front...at the beginning of the post when a funnies coming? So, no one sprays their beverage on the screen or keyboard...causing quite a mess to clean up....or total replacement.

And seeing, as I am soon to be 60...THAT'S RIGHT...THE BIG 6-0...a Depends alert may be in order...because now we're talkin' about couch cushions.

:smileyhappy:

I'm trying to come up with a context under which this post might be copied into the Wisdom and Insights thread. It made me laugh so hard. Perhaps we just need a healing library thread on day-changing humour. Thanks for this one, Mia.

How am I doing? I feel great. Work is hell but I'm too busy to have even a single A-related thought. I'm running again which means I get home and then head out again almost immediately. Life is full and fun. I have no particular Labour Day plans. Maybe a drive-in, a little girls' afternoon out. No drama. Just fun.

That was a slip of the thumb. I was just on here reading and lurking. Not much to say. Doing okay and trying to hang in there. Have seen better days and know there are better ones coming. Just have to be patient. :smileyhappy:
