anyone else's luna bar telling them they need a new void of course table? anyone know how to DO that?
clay~ yay for ruling out the worst of the worst, and hopes for concrete answers soon!
i did read and catch up on all yesterday, but didnt make it to actually replying (so, some of those "view" counts are mine, as it can take me 5-6+ visits to read and get to reply!)...
sending hugs and vibes and happy thoughts to all in need for all various things... my mind is so much in flower essence land, they keep popping in my head as i read (PMS? easter lily! bitting? snapdragon-- gotta love the symbolism there).... i've been reading, at the... ah... urging...;-) of bluets, matthew wood's "7 herbs" and i am in love. my word for the year (the one i drew, not one i chose-- more on that later) is "understanding" (maia, we're word twins! huzzah!)... so taking the time to Understand something, whereas i usually go with just "feeling" it. will be good for me. actually, if i'm honest, that's why i flunked out of gradschool. you cant feel your way to a PhD in intellectual history. (i really want a :lol here, but the smiley function and my computer just do not get along well!) at any rate, i'm putting myself on a mini-study path, and very much looking forward to it.
as for my sitting down and thinking about and picking a word... i feel like that's tied up in my TM... i'm still in the astrological "year" of that, and wont be ready for a new one til aries new moon. like, TM is my "me" new "year" time... kwim? but i did make (uh, "we" made) Family Resolutions, and i want to choose a word that fits those. anyone got a word that somehow encompasses "greater hands-on creative crafting of our lives"? things like-- making more meals *together*... playing games together... reading books *together*.... and making seasonal decorations/crafts-- you got it: TOGETHER.
maybe our word should be "together"! lol
dh's schedule is still in academia-insane-land for the rest of this semester, but HOPEFULLY this will be the last semester! (he started when ds was 5 months old.... he'll be 5 years old in april. <whew>) and then we will have much more Togetherness. but my december "blues" (and you know i cant blame SAD, when i'm swimming in the sun half the days of the week!) i know was rooted in lack of Togetherness, so i'm determined to grab it when we can and make the most of it. that's a bit of a challenge, given dh's schedule-- he works most evenings, and that is really hard on me. (although, plugging a FE here, i used to be Utterly Terrified Each And Every Night, til i started taking Mimulus. and now, i'm really amazingly great with it.)
i loved reading all your replies to the "how do you id/label" conversation. it's a challenging one for me-- since i tend to "feel" things, i dont do well following anything "set" so i tend to not feel like i CAN label myself. it's one of those things all tied-up in itself.... i dont feel "informed" enough to label myself, but i dont feel right following anything set, so i linger in wishey-washey land and feel rather down on myself for not being "able" to pick some label and use it confidently. but when i just let myself Be (aka"feel")... i do wonderful things. but then i feel like i "should" use a label, and it all starts over.........
ok, blabeldy-blab! :-) hugs and sunshine to all! (yes, i'm ready for more warmpth too. i am realizing i'm very very glad we moved back to sun-heat-land... because the cold really gets to me. :-(
