DSM-IV indeed. Also, "too chocolatey" is in my opinion an oxymoron.
Zubeldia, Just keep feeling it for now, mama. Wish there were something I could do.
JayGee, yes, that is pretty outrageously poor coaching. And for way too much money to be so wrong.
Real, wanted to add that your photo made me smile. And that's saying something. So cute! Both of you.
Today worked out to be a good day for survival. We walked to the zoo, which was not as nightmarish as so many terrible reviews had me expecting--but then, it was only upper 80s today and not nearing 120. After the zoo, we came back to the house for lunch (leftovers), then rested a little and hit the beach, where the water was loaded with little jellyfish. Swam a little and kids played a lot, and eventually dh met us there at almost sunset. Back here, more leftovers for dinner and I made popcorn.
Dh went and got a haircut. Came back without gray hair. He tried refusing but somehow left the place dyed. It looks awful.
sparkle, yes. Yes! I rather had a lot of good thinking on the beach today, and right along those lines. Not a writing class so much as just shut up and write, and also YES on the school thing. I signed up to bring the stuffing for next week's Thanksgiving picnic, and told ds's teacher that I'd talk to the class about writing for a living. It's something, at least. Also need to visit the beach more often. Amazing, the ocean is a living entity to me. I can totally understand how cultures may have ascribed deities to the sea.
Tomorrow morning, if we don't go on a 2-hour drive to another emirate, I'll head out for a run. Going to charge the ipod.
