Where do I begin?
Honestly, I’m not sure. I’ve been gone from the blogging world for six weeks. Seems like a lifetime ago (exaggerate much, Elsie?).
I’ll start by saying I’m in great place right now.
Life is good.
The rush at work is over and I can breath again. What was supposed to only be a seasonal job turned into an all year round job and that’s great news for me. The owner of the company I work for also gets migraines which means the people I work with are compassionate about it versus the whole, “It’s all in your head” mentality.
Although it’s a part-time job, it suits my needs. I can get out of the house and feel productive without overloading my poor fibro’d body. Then, when I’m done with work I chill out in my awesome new massage chair. That thing rocks.
On the home front, things were a bit rocky after I updated my boundary agreement with Devin. He felt that all too familiar feeling of dread because it contains deadlines for certain things regarding his recovery. Rather than talk to me about it, he held it in and then the animosity started showing up in different ways.
Eventually, we sat down and talked about it and of course, things went much smoother after that. He’s found a new determination in his approach to his recovery. As for mine, well, I deeply miss my weekly meetings but I’m still able to reach out to a woman in my group and help others in the S-Anon program by being a sponsor. Helping others really helps me stay in a healthy recovery.
And finally on the writing front, I finished my next round of edits on my mob book. It was a painstaking process because I had to remove all the double spacing I had in there along with adding in those blasted emotions I neglected to show the first time around. But, I’m glad it’s done.
While I wait for the critique to come back, I plan on working on my self-help book. It’s been difficult to work on because of the memories it tends to bring up, but I’ll move through them and be a better person because of it and hopefully be able to help others too.
I hope to have them both finished – revisions and all – by the end of the year.
So, what have I missed in the blogosphere? What have you guys been up to? How’s the A-Z Challenge going? Anyone else close to finishing up something that's taken forever to do?
