Life goes on
Thinking of you, mama. Like you said a holding pattern is better than a downward spiral. Hoping things look up soon.

I might steal this idea, substituting homemade apple butter.
Steal it! I did! haha.

But he's stressing since the principal is someone he's worked with before, and he honestly doesn't know how this guy feels about him. So he's nervous.
Enjoy the alone time, mama!! Sounds MAGNIFICENT!!! Will be sending good energy to your DH! It sounds like a great fit for him. How does HE feel about the principal? Well, fingers crossed!

M thinks they are too old to be sleeping together overnight anymore. Especially since ds is playing with himself and not shooting blanks anymore. I say forget it, not inappropriate, ds and L are more like brother and sister, and they act like it, too. He couldn't be more grossed out by the idea of L in that capacity.
I agree with revolting, I would allow it, too. This may be too much for me to say but I mean, if they are going to get down in that capacity they don't need a sleepover to do it. If they are like siblings and all the parents are in agreement then whatever.
okay, ladies, so remember how I was all "oh I wish there was something public for Pagans in my area" -- WELL, the local Magickal store is now holding rituals on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month... It's $5 and is in Wiccan style. Here's the snippet from the newsletter...What do you guys think?? I'm so nervous to go!!
Imagicka, in conjunction with Weavers of the Web will host open rituals for the purpose of teaching a ritual structure and the practice of magical self-actualization.What does this mean? It means come and have fun; dance, chant, and grow. We will go through our ritual structure before each ritual. Every ritual will also have a focus where participants will be able to use the energy and magick created for some form of personal growth and/or exploration.as long as it does no harm, do what you will Rituals will be held the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month at Imagicka, 75 Court Street, Binghamton, NY. All who wish to participate are welcome. 5.00 Weavers of the Web currently consist of Darin and Dawn Goldenberg
Darin Goldenberg - I have been leading rituals in this style on and off for the last 15 years. My formal Wiccan teachings were from outside of an established Blue Star tradition coven. I am also familiar with Native American Shamanism, tarot, crystals, and The Fae; as well as a number of pantheons.
Dawn Goldenberg - I have been leading rituals for others for about five years and teaching Wicca 101 at Imagicka for three years. Personal Growth is an important part of my life. The greatest gift of leading circles and teaching others is empowering others to discover the joy of personal growth and the magic in their lives as well. My own areas of interest and study are plant spirits, runes, shamanism, mythology, crystals and psychology.
