Here is what has been going on with me the last few weeks.
- Husband and I began counseling.
- I have a definite plan in place to finish my degree.
- classes I teach at work are becoming more attended.
- getting the house organized
- have put children on notice that some things need to change.
- my pet bird died. very sad and tragic.
counseling seems to be going well. We both like the therapist. and I feel we are both comfortable saying what is on our minds. sessions are once a week, and the Husband takes the time off work that he needs to take to attend.
I met with a Dean at the university that I will be attending to finish my degree. I have 6 classes to take. 4 through distance ed on the internet and two on campus. I will be graduating in May.
I have actual students signed up and attending the classes I teach at work. They are paper crafting classes and are great fun for me.
I friend came and helped me organize all the cake decorating supplies that were in the dining room. she will be back to help with other areas as well. Another friend came to help my son clean out the basement. Many things have been thrown out! He should be back in a couple of weeks to finish that task.
I had a short meeting with my children about how our living situation needed to change so we could live more comfortably and so I am not continually taken advantage of. I did not get into specifics as of yet, I will be meeting with them individually to do that. My therapist and I are working on a specific plan on how to do that.
My poor bird. Mr. Yikes. It appears as though he was trying to escape from his cage and got his neck caught. I am sure you can imagine in the rest. He was a 5-year-old Nanday Conure. very beautiful. He said a couple of things, one of which was “good night” every time the light would be turned off. I will miss him.
