BTW, I wanted to add, my gut feeling says...nothings really changed more than Ive seen before. Maybe theres more humility and acceptance. He said 1 -6 pack lead to losing his family, job, utilities and food and that was a route he had to overcome... Im skeptical and honestly I dont expect to hear from him when he gets paid, if he truly is working and had a short day, so Im concentrating on me and controlling my responses, when he comes up with some excuse as to why no money, its part of my learning to let go

Good for u Cinders its gotta be hard to see him though. I'm sure alot of the emotions that have been tucked away come back to the surface. Either way for today he is working on himself and realizes what he has lost and what he needs to do to move forward. U can only control u and thats good that u see that now. I'm sure your kids enjoy u being back too and enjoy the non chaotic life takes some adjusting but it will all work out in the end.

((((cindi)))) i know how hard it is to see him - especially when its so unexpected like that. i'm glad you were able to talk to him and glad that your house looked good - at least from the outside. letting go isn't easy but is sure helps keep us sane.

take the focus off him.. remember everything but take the focus off him and put it into your job, work and your New Pet Rat when you get home.. and your kids!

Go forward, not back even if it means imagining taking the steps to do so!

hey cindi - just wondering, your little one turns 3 in june right? have you made any plans for him yet? mine turns 3 in june too and i'm not sure what to do for him. he doesn't go to a daycare (just a babysitter at her house) so he doesn't have a lot of friends for a party. just wondering if you had any good ideas. (p.s. this is me trying to help you focus on something else!)

LOL.

I dont do parties, ever. Just convince family members to do a little something, we just all have a cookout and play.
For mine, we are trying t get their rooms organized. Garret who just turned 6 is moving in with Daniel, almost 3, we hope by end of summer to have bunk beds and all there artwork set up. My kids are easy and low maintenance, as long as they have pets, squirt guns and slip and slides.

Those are the types of stuff I do and they seem to appreciate it. It helps since through my adult finances have been from great to nill. It also helps since we ahve family members who come in and out of our lives, the kids dont think much of not hearing from everybody (maybe thats a bit of my inner child coming out, but it seems to keep us all grounded)

Finally I hear ya on that one I had a boss that was like that. It was a job that no one wanted to give up anything for me to do like a competition. I would sit and beg all day for something to do and they would be like NOPE nothing for u. Then as I was walking out the door the boss would come up with this huge stack of crap that was sitting there on his desk all day and be like this needs to be done b4 u leave WHAT its time to go now. I hated that job. Then again not sure I have really loved all my jobs let alone like them.

Do you gals think we get in a place in our recovery where we outgrow a job or environment?

I think u do get like that. Right now I am thinking about just going back to school and really find a job I will love and something I really want to do not what I know how to do. If that makes sense. I dont think I would be happy today doing what I did when I was 16. I think as u grow u change and your interests change and what u want to do changes with you. Just my opinion.
