I've been on the med's now for about 4 days. It has helped quite a bit. It has been a couple days since I have had an anxiety attack. I decided this weekend I was going to spend as much time as possible outside. Saturday, I got my bicycle out and spent a good 2 1/2 hours riding around town. It felt so good just to be outside.

SBJ, hang in there. I find the easiest way for me to make it through the holidays is to take it one day at a time. Also, if you can, try and get all your shopping done before Thanksgiving. I have found if I get the shopping done early and don't have to go out into the crowds, I can manage the holidays much easier. If there is anything I need to pick up after Thanksgiving, I stay away from the large shopping centers and the malls. I'll go to the most out of the way shop instead. There is nothing I hate more than going into a mall during the Christmas shopping season.

I took advantage of the day yesterday and spent a large part of it outdoors with my grandson. He is a lil pip!
I love watching him explore or make up stories on the playground or his sandbox.
He is in pre~K now and he is getting smart as a whip, even more so than before. He tells long tales of this or that as we are driving by something. He is excited about everything and I love being around him.
I am also looking forward to my latest grandchild in February. I am hoping for a girl, my daughter wants another boy. But, as long as she/he is healthy, it is all that really matters.
My son is thinking of coming home from Alaksa for the holidays (Christmas and New Years) so I am looking forward to hearing about that.
Life goes on, and I up for the challenge.

Wow, looks like you have a lot to look forward to over the next few months.

Yes life does go on. This time of year, I just take it one day at a time.

I take it one day at a time ALL year round since my break up, and will contnue to do so.
God is blessing me with a new grandchild to add to my already beautiful family. I still have up and down days. But, I tell myself now, I just have to get through today. For some reason, weekends can be hardest...but I just keep busy then.
It is also nice to know I am not alone in this.

Your definitely not alone and yes, it seems like weekends and evenings are the worst times.

Looks like today is another great day outside, so I am going home this afternoon and spend the remainder of the day outside working around the yard and maybe take a walk.

I have been in and out all day, having the wood delivered today and grandson is over again. Thanks TRD for your encouragement and everyone else as well.

Almost time to get out of here and go home. Going to spend some time outside this afternoon with the dogs.

I wish I had a fireplace in my house, but I think I would rather have a gas fireplace. I don't think I would want to bother with bringing wood inside and having to start a fire.

That's half the fun! As long as you don't have to do it every day.

Everyday would be a pain in the rear. I also don't think I would want to deal with the mess of cleaning the burned out logs and ash out of the fireplace. I'm thinking gas is the way to go.

If you are obsessively compulsive, it is a pain, and I am guessing that TRD, keeps a clean neat house. So gas is the way to go.

Yes, in addition to the seasonal disorder I am completely obsessive compulsive in keeping the house clean. In the middle of one of my panic attacks a week ago, I ended up cleaning the kitchen at 2 am in the morning. This included removing all items from the cabinets, washing out the inside of the cabinets and then putting everything back in.

Well, TRD you would have hated being here a few moments ago...lol. I just finished cleaning my chimney and it aint a fun job, but I took alot of agression out on the dang thing! It is no fun to be covered in soot, have in your hair and nose. But, it helps to relieve stress. I was stressed because last year the ex cleaned the chimney, and I went to find the long extension handle and brush. It was NOT put back in the place it has been kept for the nine years I have lived here...the garage neatly placed in it's nook on the wall (about the only neat thing about the garage..lol). No, after about 2 hours of going stark raving mad (I bet the ex was going insane with the LOUD screeching ringing in his ears!), I found it. Where? Some other corner of the garage? The opposite side of the garage? NOOOO...in a dark corner of the cellar!!!
But, once I found it, I think I heard the chimney screaming, because I took my aggression out on it. And it is squeaky clean now.
I hate to start a fire in the woodstove to start winter without cleaning it. (Though while in Seneca Falls in September, my son in law did...God, help him I did not choke him..lol).
All that is left is to put the chimney brush away...and it will go in the cellar now because my garage needs a good haul out. But, man I wanted to choke someone who I would not even grace with two words...at least not two words I can say on here!.
But, it is worth the glow of a nice warm fire on a cold fall/winter night and a job I hate doing, but get much satisfaction out of.
Now, if you will excuse me...I hear a hot shower calling me... followed by a hot pack to my back...medication, a nap...then physical therapy.

There is nothing worse than not being able to find something that wasn't placed in it's correct place.

I was livid. I searched everywhere I could think of where he might put it. The garage is worse than when I started (getting that cleaned out isn the spring with a roll off trailer...too much junk left by me, him and my kids.).
I finally went back to the cellar, flashlight in hand and located it.
I would not care so much, but if I had not found it, I would have had to buy a new one. No way in heck i would call him to find anything!
But, now that the job is done, I am starting to feel better about things, back to my old independent self. I have always cleaned the chimney, but last year, I had just had a cortisone injection and could not. I am glad the job is done, and I am more my old self.
Just one more thing on my checklist to add that I dont need a man...lol. Need, no...want? Someday.
But I am unsure I would ever put that much trust into someone ever, ever again.

Someday you will. Breakups take time to get over and then to move on. I think too many people jump into a new relationship after a breakup and never learn to become independant on their own again.

Isn't it amazing how much stuff you can accumulate? I moved into my house 7 years ago and thought I had so much room. Now I look around and think I need more storage space.

The biggest PITA in the garage right now is my arbor I amde for the weddings last year, that was to be put up in my side yard this summer and prepared to be left out. Never got to it as I cannot do it alone, and my kids never had "time". But, net spring I am getting that done and the rest will follow.
I date here and there, but I would not enter a relationship for awhile. He did from what I understand. That's just fine. Rebounds rarely work, and they are not for me.
But, someday, yes...I will be ready to open my heart again.

We built an arbor over my back patio a few years ago. You'll love it once you get it installed.

Dating can be fun. I always hate the first date. They always seem awkward.

There is a gentleman in town who has flirted with for years, but is apparently to shy to ask me out...or is unaware I am available...to an extent. So...my kids, family and friends keep reminding me it is 2006. They want me to call and ask him out for dinner or a movie or both. He is very nice and good looking, and busy! He is a farmer, but he does go out. I just have not got the nerve yet. The other dates were blaaaah. Or I knew they only wanted one thing, and I was not going there.
Aww, well...maybe tonight I will call.

Just call and tell him you're going out for dinner/out to a movie, and you'd like some company. Would he like to go.

Instead of dinner/movie or both, you could always see if he is available for coffee, a walk around town, or maybe even lunch. But yes, if your interested in him, then give him a call. Or if you run into him in the store, by all means stop and chat.
