Weekend Check-*out* Check-in
Good morning:-) I am checking out for a day or two. Nothing personal to DS, but real life kicked my kneecaps pretty badly, and my spoon drawer is *empty*, so I'm taking a couple days to just isolate, read books I already knwo by heart b/c it's easy and soothing, and maybe if I get reallllly radical, watch TV. I have the health rights rally today---holding a sign in a wind is going to be fun (not)---but I caught Hubby's cold and between that, and some other crap? Yeah, bedtime for the puma. Hot fluids, bed rest, and Monday I up-and-at'em.
Or pretend I'm up and at 'em. Whichever.
Who is Roberto? It's the name of m ybaseball bat. For Roberto Clemente, a player who died when I was a tiny tot, but was one of my dad's fave players, so .... Do you name inanimate objects? Cars, etc.? The bat's about it for me, but our neighbor calls his Cooper Mini "Zelda". (Took me weeks to realize he meant the car and not a girlfriend. Ew.)
So check *this* out....
These are actual places on our planet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFdBNJsW46Y I vote massive (mental) road trip.
A few locations: What is that huge crystal mine in Mexico? Selenite crystals!
The flower fields? Just pretty cool.
The Bolivia site that looks like a mirror? Is a salt flat. Huge lithium salt reserves there, very valuable, and the layer of salt can, at the right angle, act as if it's a reflective surface in the right spots. (Most of it just looks like a big white flat, btw, anad is noted for its breeding flamingoes. Bright pink birds on white. Freaky, but true.)
There's a lake in Senegal that looks like Pepto-Bismol pink. It's highly saline, and the algae give it the pink color, which is most vivid in dry seasons. (Diluted, obviously, the water is less "pink".)
This video is a nice travelogue of just odd places: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZbWtUe5B3Q It's narrated, no need for your resident nerrd;-)
OK, off to rest up. Blessings, all.:-)
Good morning! Posting late Sunday night b/c... Well, today was The Day we had The Marital Talk.And, frankly, all the stress and all the stress and all the stress.... means I'm down sick again. Stupid immune system refuses to be healthy when I tell it to be!Short version? Hubby's dad laid it out as "Do you want more money, more than you want to be married and enjoying the life you've got?" And...
Hey all. Been awhile since I was here last, I seem to show up when I’m facing something new I don’t understand and that’s the case again. My doctor wanted me to again go to counseling. My old counselor who has fibro has retired and I have a new one. We are, in my mind getting to know each other, although she began seeing my wife and I around the first of this year for marriage counseling....
My son lives full time with his mum. Unfortunately, he has taken on the role of surrogate spouse since my departure. Reading up on this subject, when one member of the family leaves the family system, another one will step up and take its place. However this relationship is not healthy, and it needs to be stopped. I will be taking a very proactive role to ensure that this unhealthy dynamic is...
This is the same brother who lost me more than a million, stole before this another $50,000. The story is too long. He is a sociopath with narcissistic personality disorder. Enough said? Of course there was all the verbal, psychological, mental, and spiritual abuse. The physical abuse cane from lack of money, good health care, food, a social life and being able to function without intolerable...
