yeah, me too.

but then, last night around 4am i got hit hard with food poisoning
i have been sick for 12 hours almost. i have stopped pooping (sorry TMI) and am just trying to treat myself gently. i feel slightly better, but not a whole lot.
because of this, i am not feeling the love that i was yesterday and all the weeks before this, about the treasure map, but when one is that physically ill, it's hard to get enthusiastic about anything.

i know what the lesson is, here. it was pretty much self-inflicted. i ignored instincts. i guess i should put something about instincts on my map?

This blizzard really is bad.....I don't think I'll be tm'ing for a bit...I'll just jot down some ideas...

My mother has been very very ill for years. She has been living in a nursing home for two and a half years. Well without going into a whole long story....she passed away just a few hours ago. About one or two hours after the new moon. I knew that she would go this week. I am glad that she has peace now. She loved her life...every minute of it. Even these past difficult years seem to have been harder on all of us(me, my sibs and my dad) than her!

I don't really know how to proceed with the map. Not sure if I can even do one now. I have to travel and I am of course very sad. It seems hard (and perhaps inappropriate) to focus on what I want.

Also its my birthday on Saturday the 28th. I feel very out of body right now. Oh, and this would be my third map. I have really enjoyed these threads the past few years.

Yay!

I went to the bookstore with a friend and we got three new magazines! I'm so excited and hopeful for this TM... it just "feels" like a good day.

I'll be doing some web image searching too since B&N doesn't really carry magazines with nice glossy pictures of happy vbacs, you know?

ETA- Sarmis35- my thoughts are with you and your family.

I'm sorry, sarmis35. A new beginning for your mother . . . and for you.
post #26 of 444
So sorry for your loss, sarmis35 Besides the grief, losing a parent is really disorienting, "out of body", as you say. Please take care of yourself.


Ya think I could get a naptime break, but not today evidently! Treasure map thinking is on hold over here for crying babies....

ETA Ok, baby sleeping again....

I am on my own with the children this week -- dh not home till late tomorrow night. So I have to give them an adventure too, and I don't think treasure mapping is going to be the adventure that thrills my toddler!

I think we will go supply-and-magazine-shopping, to a food court dinner, and then to an indoor playground while I take some notes and cut up my mags.

Last year, I had an image for my relationship with my dd, but not for my relationship with my ds's THis year, I want to make sure that I map a happy and valued relationship with my little guys, too.

I gave my dsage5 some watercolor paper cut small and watercolor pencils. He drew a lovely picture of the two of us sitting together on a couch and smiling that is DEFINITELY going on my map this year.:

I don't wanna be a party pooper, but i need a question answered....there is no way we are going out in this weather, they are closing stores, schools...and cars are going off the road....my home is decluttered and smelling delicious......i did a sage smudging this morning and think i will enjoy a cup of tea and some comfort food while the snow keeps comin' down......


my question: what should we do if we are stuck inside with no magazines, no printer, nothin.....wait it out and start tomorrow? i am restless but surprisingly calm


sarmis35: i am sorry for your loss... you're in our thoughts....

jazzybaby, you have several days. I like to write affirmations on day one and take the remaining days to construct the thing itself.

This sounds like a great idea, thanks for posting it. Things have been a little more challenging than usual with DS today, so it's good to remember that there is no urgency -- we have 3.5 days. I'm trying to figure out exactly how to incorporate DS's "funk" today (and my reactions to it )...
post #32 of 444
OK help me figure out how to put this on my map. I read Tracy's article and the part where it said yucky stuff might come up and to seriously address it on the map...

Today I took the boys out to lunch and then went and bought magazines, and supplies. We got home and worked on maps for about an hour, then they wanted to go play with friends (school was out) so they went outside. About fifteen mins later, I hear my little one (5) screaming at the bottom o the stairs for a bandaid. I run down and can't figure out what's wrong... big bro (8) isn't talking... then he freaks out and starts screaming and whining and I can't understand a word he's saying. At the same time, little one is still screaming for a bandaid (I'm holding him in my recliner by now) but I can't figure out where the boo boo is... he says it's on his head... I lift him up and he is bleeding PROFUSELY from a cut. Apparently, big bro threw a rock at him and beaned him. Ended up needing stitches, etc.

They have had a rough few months... dad and I got separated, their grandpa is going to die literally any day now, and they've been acting out aggressively with each other. I've been trying to help them navigate, but am not doign a very good job.

So... this happening right after the new moon tells me it's important to address this. But I'm not sure how to put it on my map.

Ideas?

Sysiphus: When you are feeling happy and balanced, so will they. So I would just address all of the usual things-- your dreams and desires, a happy healthy family, etc. I'm sorry that things are so hard for them, (and you,) right now.

I am so sorry for the loss of your mom.
post #35 of 444
I could use some ideas, also. H and I just erupted into a nasty emotional fight. Nasty in the sense of the subjects being sensitive long-standing marital issues. I feel there is distance between us lately and I want to bring the romance and friendship closer - I am hoping to bring this to my map. But how? I will work on affirmations tonight. Also, I fear bringing negative things to my map by working on the map while in these feelings but I feel so drawn to work on it NOW. ideas?

Even though it seems impossible to achieve this year, should I put it on my map anyway? Or should I just focus on realistic goals for this year?
LTB, you don't know what is impossible this year.
PUt it up on your map.

I have a bit of a vent and question.. DS and I went to go buy magazines and as soon as we got to the store, he started throwing up all over both of us!!! So we're home, and I don't think we'll be venturing out to get magazines or anything.. Can I just use on-line images and cardboard and paper that I already have here?
yes, online is okay. It is whatever calls to you. online images, magazines, color xeroxes..what ever rings your bell.

And we're already vegan, gluten free, corn free, and mostly sugar free (all white sugar and most other sugars).. I'll focus on the healthy, happy family part!

Thanks!!

sounds good.

I am wondering if there is a little rub in there about Changes. Perhaps your DS is not good with changes because when you think about it treasure map brings changes.

maybe there is an affirmation or image that supports your family during changes. just a thought.

Yeah, I would make sure your instincts are supported on your map. that is huge.

Oh, big hugs, Sarmis.

I am so sorry about your mom. But at the same time you have got your birthday on SAturday so I know you are getting the square from Pluto to your sun, which means you are in a big period of transitions, changes, metamorphesis.

It is okay if you do not have your map done by Crescent Moon. You have all the time between now and Full. I gently want to encourage you do to a map. Trust me on some stuff.... your mom would want you to be focused on your life. Especially since she loved her life. Light a candle for you. Think about stuff and when it is time you will make the map and it will probably come to you easily.

HUGS.
