Hey, I'm back. I havent' had Internet service for over a month. Long story, problems with server.
So, I am able to get on today and I get to start the morning thread
My life has been a shambles over the last month. In addition to no Internet and missing all of you (which has been the worst), my van has been giving me problems. I have had it to, I think, 6 different people and nobody can seem to figure out what the problem is. But, hopefully, today's trip to the mechanic will be the last (whether they can fix it or it needs to be trashed). Thankfully, my in-laws have an extra vehicle so I have been able to at least have transportation.
My other problem is my 8-year-old son who all of a sudden this school year has developed some severe anxiety about going to school. He cries almost every morning on the way to school, then once he gets at school, he is fine. I am at a loss as to what is wrong. He tells me nothing is wrong, but he develops migraines on Sunday night and then has this problem going to school. My doctor is suggesting some counseling to see if we can figure out what the problem is. I think that needs to be his next step. He can go from being happy, to crying, to happy in a matter of minutes. I am beginning to wonder if he is not bipolar. And I know part of it is genetics, since I have severe depression and anxiety. Oh well, hopefully counseling will give us the answer.
Thanks for listening to my rant. Just, please, say a prayer for my baby.
Now for breakfast, I'm trying to be good and stick to my diet, so it will be whole wheat toast, yougrt and skim milk. For all of you who don't need to worry about their weight, you can have the pancakes drenched in syrup.
I should get to bed soon. I'm back up in 5 hours.
Love to all.

, it's good to see you back! Your ongoing vehicle troubles sound VERY frustrating (glad you have a spare set of wheels)! I hope this present mechanic can figure things out for you. Hugs, too, for your 8yo and for you. How we hurt when our children hurt!! Sounds like you are proceeding to the next helpful step, after exhausting all the other avenues. I certainly hope the counseling helps. Our children's worries, which we may perceive as miniscule, can be frightening and overwhelming to them, who lack the abstract thinking skills and logic and maturity
to manage and cope. You're a good Mom, give yourself a hug and forge ahead.
! How's the weather in Ft. Worth?? I've never been there; I did attend a conference about 5 yr ago, in San Antonio. Enjoyed the walking tour in the "old" neighborhood, going thru The Alamo and taking a bus tour of five missions. So much history, so little time!!
, stay awake, OK?? Isn't there anything on TV that's halfway entertaining????
I'm almost off to bed myself (still recovering from a busy weekend!) . . . y'all have a good whatever!!

Off to bed soon. Didn't want to leave you without your song of the day
Hope y'all have a great day! I'm probably off to Springfield today - I'm going to see my BON. I either walk out with a license or there'll be hell to pay!
