Pagan Family Circle: let's chat in August! - Page 3
Thanks for asking! He's....well, he's alright. He had 30 days of intentional sobriety and then sabotaged himself by drinking on Day 31 He was all obnoxious to me yesterday, to the point where it drove me to tears...I called him back to ask wtf he was being like that for, and he was just mad at AA for failing him (I had to say "was it AA that failed you, or the other way round?") and mad at me I think because I am an AA success story, and because he thought after working hard for 30 days that he'd be "fixed" (It was too sad to laugh). Poor guy. One of these days I hope he will get that it is a sustained and constant and persistent WORK, to get and stay sober. He is lazy and very procrastinating when it comes to things like this, so it may take a long freaking time.
How's you? I noticed the list had stopped. Yesterday I thought to myself "I wonder what happened to the MDC list; I hope it's not petering out"-- because I really, really miss Cari and Clay and witchygrrl and all the others. I'm on FB with some of them, but honestly I can't even remember who there was who here. Which I hate. Sigh.
Wow, Maia. That is too bad about M. I hope your visit goes well - I'll be thinking of you. I know, I miss those mamas, even though I hadn't been on very long when they stopped posting.
I am just chugging along here. Z starts preschool on the 11th so we're just kind of anticipating that. I keep looking at my altar thinking that I have to change it but seem to have no motivation but I feel like it's really portraying what the time is... the flowers are wilted and going to seed there and outside...
Oh, hon. I am just so sorry
vydalea, M is trying to be back on the AA bandwagon. He's on his way to a meeting right now. He went Sunday (his new Day One) but wasn't really into it much. Didn't go Monday because he went to his dd's house. Didn't go Tuesday because he was cleaning his house. I dunno if he wasn't just feeling like cr*pola. I think maybe.
But today, YAY, and he's not being all belligerent about it. He sounds like he wants to go.
Tomorrow I go see him, hooray!
Back later-- got lots of things to go do.
Revolting, I am so so sorry for your loss. I hope you can take some time find the peace you need.
Maia, yay for seeing M. Safe travels!
Sorry that I haven't been on here much. It's tough when most of the time, I'm on my tablet, which doesn't allow me to post here. Sigh. Anyway, I do lurk and think of you all.
It's been a looooooong time since I checked MDC - the last thread I was subscribed this way was in October of 2011! It wasn't really intentional, just got slammed by life so there you are.
revolting - Sending love and light your way - so sorry for your loss.
maia - I had *really* hoped your house would have sold while I was gone. I hope something moves on that soon. Oh, and the lice? I can't say as I envy you there. The last time we dealt with lice was when I was in middle school (?) and it still gives me the willies just thinking about it.
Sending my oldest off to ps this year - he's only in second grade, but he was homeschooled from the beginning so this is a first. I had declared this year to be the year of Ganesh for us, but I can't say this is quite how I expected one of my obstacles to move.
We're trying to decide how we'll handle holidays when they coincide with school days because when we homeschooled we just took the day off. Some we can reschedule, but November 1st is typically when we celebrate Samhain and it's kind of a big deal for the family so we're contemplating taking him out of school for that day. I just want to be careful, though, because I don't want my son to be that weirdo kid who was homeschooled in addition to holding non-mainstream religious beliefs.
I'm looking forward to fall - this side of the wheel is always my favorite time of year (right up through Imbloc anyway). I suppose this fall is as good a time as any for big changes.

You and me both, mama. I hope it does too, but I may be looking at either sitting on the house for a good while, or dropping the price. Which, the price isn't bad at all, and I need profit to move. Ugh.
As for lice, I think they're gone...M checked my head with these mac-daddy loupe glasses that are like binoculars on your head, and he saw nothing at all. I still ought to check ds's when I get back, though. He's not itching anymore, but I itch a lot-- I think it's power of suggestion. I hope!
So take the day off. I never think it's a big deal to take ds out of school and I don't see any reason to tell why, either. I just do it if I feel like it!
