Nic - I'm not being flip; could you do them all? Could you do three. I would try to do as many as I could, even if it meant I was slammed for a few months. I think all sound so interesting, and because you dont know where any of them might lead, even if its "just" the benefit of networking for friendship and community, I would put my feet into as many pools as I could manage. Really, can you make a list of interest and do as many of the top ines as possible? It doesnt sound like any one of them is full-time. Am I crazy? Maybe. Shake things up girl!
Jo - my mom is relatively fine. Her cancer has not spread, at least as far as she understood the prognosis, which is something I always have to consider, b/c her take on reality is more often different then everyone elses. It is in her intestines. She will have surgery and radiation, and then we'll see I guess.
Lisa - seriously. indeed. Is there a longer term effort to work on communication? It seems like you chalk it up to depression (has he been diagnosed) and then he gets a pass to treat you like crap and model horrible behavior for your stressed kids. Maybe something in the direction of Nic's footprints? Sigh. Im so sorry you have to shoulder so much all the time
Plady - yeah. what would that letter say!? How is C doing these days, and how do you think the mood stuff relates to the hormone stuff? That was a not insignificant coincidence, no?
Melw - that school thing sounds interesting, but more for you to take on. I would hope that you have plenty of support lined up so that you are not just getting piled on ;hug
NRR: That's all I have time for, for now. Oh, Nationals, IF DD1 gets invited from Divisionals, are in C. Springs. Good for me b/c I can drive. Early March, dont know if or how I could swing a meet-up...
