Janet, I wish I had as much wisdom and willpower as you do regarding craft spending! And despite that, you make beautiful cards! However, you probably spend more money on drinks than I do, te he!

Thanks...We're leaving this Friday and will be back next Friday...we're going to Barbados for Jerry's parents' 50th anniversary. They're renewing their vows there....

I'm jealous that you've only spent $5.24 on craft supplies this year...I only wish I can say something remotely similar but I can't...lol.

Hi evryone...well I've ben busy yes...I've also been very stressed and not well.

I'm much better now tho...

So most of you dont know that I've been having trouble with my 16 yr old DD. So bad in fact that I had a TIA which is a mild stroke. It's been hell trying to take care of myself with all this stress she causes. I'm now in better condition that I was before. Fatigued for the most part but less stressed. YAY for me. My DH has had no choice but to step up to the plate and take over to take some of the unneccesary stress that I undergo with DD. He's a step parent but it's either a stroke or the end of us. Yes it had taken it's toll on our relationship. None the less.......I'm BETTER

We've enrolled in a support group that meets every Wednesday. They have helped me so much with DD and DH. He basically had no roll as a parent and is now establishing his roll. DD is not liking but too bad for her.

I honestly thought before the support group I was a bad mother...I was ashamed to go out with or without her..or go anywhere knowing I could not trust her or DH to handle her. We still have a ways to go yet but things are much better that before.

With that being said crafting at all is not being done because of my busy schedule.
I have some swaps to do and will try my best to get them done.

I hope everyone is doing well and Di I wish I could go with you...hell I'd even babysit

Sounds like you are making some good progress Michelle! Good for you! It's too bad it took so much stress to sort it all out.

I think we ALL wish we could go with Di!

Yes looking forward to my purging party... no date had been set yet...but in the mean time it's been one room at a time. Purged and reorganized the kitchen, the living room still needs some work but nothing major, the bathroom purged and reorganized, bedroom is almost done, next is the spare room and then THE BIG BAD CRAFT ROOM...LOL...

So everyone get ready...lol...

Thanks for noticing that I was "missing"
Been resting a fair bit to get better (clear up my Bronchitis) and dreading returning to work which I did today. Dragon Lady drove me to wanna scream and if she suggests one more time that I take a demotion because of my attendance I'm gonna freak! She has admitted that I do a great job when I'm there, so she has no business DISCRIMINATING because I'm not well! It's part of my benefits plan DL!! ARGH, sorry.....a little vent there!
Sounds like everyone is doing quite well.....any gathering plans coming up? (perhaps I missed the post)
I have my SWAP cards done! WoooHooo and I must admit that I am pretty pleased with them, and hope you all are too. Thought I'd check for a gathering before I pop them in the mail.........
Mad Love for you ALL!!!!

So most of you dont know that I've been having trouble with my 16 yr old DD. So bad in fact that I had a TIA which is a mild stroke. It's been hell trying to take care of myself with all this stress she causes. I'm now in better condition that I was before. Fatigued for the most part but less stressed. YAY for me. My DH has had no choice but to step up to the plate and take over to take some of the unneccesary stress that I undergo with DD. He's a step parent but it's either a stroke or the end of us. Yes it had taken it's toll on our relationship. None the less.......I'm BETTER

We've enrolled in a support group that meets every Wednesday. They have helped me so much with DD and DH. He basically had no roll as a parent and is now establishing his roll. DD is not liking but too bad for her.

I honestly thought before the support group I was a bad mother...I was ashamed to go out with or without her..or go anywhere knowing I could not trust her or DH to handle her. We still have a ways to go yet but things are much better that before.

With that being said crafting at all is not being done because of my busy schedule.
I have some swaps to do and will try my best to get them done.

I hope everyone is doing well and Di I wish I could go with you...hell I'd even babysit
OMG Michelle.....that's scary! I worked with troubled youth for a number of years in my Social Work days.....I don't claim to know much, but if you need to chat and want help I will be here, just let me know! That age group is such a challenge sometimes!

Good Morning all...

Well I'm really tired this morning becaus our inconsiderate neighbors downstairs had friends over and were very loud until we banged on the floor to tell them to shut up and they had the audacity to text message "something wrong ?" the landlord will be getting a phone call today. I'm tired of this crap. DH is pissed because they parked in the driveway almost blocking him in. It was a tight fit to getting out. The landlord doesn't do a hell of a lot so we don't bother complaining about anything to much and try to deal with it ourselves but, partying on a monday is more than I can handle.


Suzanne: Thanks for offer, it's been really tough and my situation is delicate right now but belonging to this support group has helped me and DH out alot. It's nice to be able to talk to others who are going through the same thing and actually finding ways of dealing with our kids. I also had to read a book which is has awsome insight and is dead on about why and the hows of what DD is about right now. However if there is something more going on DH and I will find out soon. We are getting her assessed to make sure nothing more serious is going on. This group is a tough one but it's helped and she seems to be responding better.

Christyne: Things are so much better. I mean the stress levels have gone down considerably and DH is taking over on some of the issues that I have no control over that he does. STill working on us tho...we've neglected our relationship for years that trying to find it is difficult...

BUT...I feel better which is good for me. my lil vacay...lol...did wonders for me and everyone else...lol

I don't know what to say because I haven't been in a situation like this but I am very sorry you are going through it.
