So when it came time to name this year I found myself in such a negative place that I decided that naming it just might not be such a wonderful idea.
I believe that feeling like I have no life of my own (self pity..YUK), looking in the mirror and for the first time really seeing signs of aging and realizing that (Yes Susan You Are Really That Old) and the death of a child that I was very close to was the catalyst for my uncharacteristic way of thinking (and acting I might add). I believe they call that mid life crisis. So in an attempt to reign myself in and handle this time of life with some dignity and not make any rash wild decision or act out any more than I already have, I have decided to start a contributing blog (that everyone may contribute to) that addresses the issues of mid life and baggage we have not dealt with that we drag into it. I will let you know when it is up and running.
For now this blog will be used to update anyone that cares what is happening in my life and the lives of the people I am closest to. I know ...boring huh!
This year Tyler will be 6, Wyatt will be 3 , Aubrey will be 2 and Mom will turn 70!
Hannah is getting married on June 3rd.
Camp Ed Bear is June 4th,5th and 6th
Akron Walks For Autism is June 18th (I am on the board of The Greater Akron Autism Society)
I probably will have to go to Asia at least once and I HATE even thinking about it.
I am going to Hawaii for the first time at the end of this month. That is something I am looking forward to.
I am diving into Art. Working on an Art Journal. Great Therapy for me and I desperately need it right now.
I am finding that the people I can act completely crazy with and they think nothing less of me are the people I need to be around. I have just a couple of those and God knows how I treasure their friendship.
Working on a gratitude list which is something I encourage all of my friends to do. It really helps put life back in perspective.
Drop me a comment and let me know how your year is starting out!
