Awww, crap. That reminds me of my ex so much. His low self esteem killed our marriage. It's so frustrating. My sympathies, LR.

Thanks Nycindie.

It's heartbreaking is what it is, just heartbreaking.

Ok, accomplishment.

Today I took the placement test at the college. That gave me the information I need in order to register for my class this summer. The information from the test won't be updated into their computer system til tomorrow or the next day. But, as soon as it's in their computer I can register to take my English class.

One more step towards my goal to return to school knocked out.

Maca has moved out. Last night was rough-but I got through it. GG held me through nightmares and bizarre dreams-ever patient.

Today I awoke to a foot of fresh snowfall. BLECH.

BUT-I didn't let that stop me. I got the tax papers together, got my ass in the car and headed out.

In the process I reconnected with a friend whose been out of my life for 14 years. I missed him. We talked, well, I talked-he listened. He got me the book I need to study for math (he had a copy in his office) and offered that any Saturday if I need help, I can go by his place and he'll help me with the math.
We made plans to go out dancing sometime.
(not a date, "just friends")

I dropped the tax papers off.
Finalized paperwork approving me to be a daycare provider for the new grandbaby.
Bought groceries.
Got my math book.
Got signed up for my summer English class.

I had those kind of dreams while my husband and I were separating.

I've just finished a guest post for another blog in the niche of my main blog (not poly people). She wanted my story, (not the poly one). It brought up for me feelings I had prior to my marriage breakup. I always saw myself in a cage and couldn't figure out how to get out. Now I realise that cage was only ever made of one thing - my own fears.

Blessings, love and light to you LR, may you be all that your forum name implies.

Going out dancing is definitely useful for learning maths. And no, that isn't meant to be flippant. I grew up in a house where dancing was a sin... and look at the first quote I chose for my signature. AFAIC (does that one exist yet? As far as I'm concerned) dancing is definitely useful for living.

I'm sorry that Maca is having such a problem with his emotions and that you, too, are being steamrollered.

I'm about to be thrown out of here until next week, but I didn't want to leave without sending you
warm, warm Love.
I'll be thinking about you...

p.s. "just" is such a funny word. "Just LR" - but isn't that enough? "just friends" - but isn't that "just" what you need right now?

Dancing with you in my dreams,
J

You have to fill out paperwork to provide childcare for your own grandchild?

So sorry things have come to such a state with Maca. Does this mean GG gets more of your time now? Will you sleep with him every night, or sleep alone? (sorry if that's too personal)

The dreams suck, now GG is having them too.
I'm trying to live up to my name. I'm trying.

Thanks, hopefully those dreams will find me, that sounds MUCH nicer than the dreams I've been stuck in this week!
I love dancing. A year or two ago Maca and I took a ballroom dancing class. It was SO SO much fun. I would LOVE to really put some devoted time into learning more.
I think JUST is exactly what I need-which is why I emphasized it in the blog title. My brother told me I'm "Just LR" (he used my real name) and it just really touched me. I want to be loved, liked, enjoyed, appreciated for being JUST me, not for living up to someone else's standards.

My daughter got put on bedrest during her pregnancy and therefore had to quit working. Because of that she qualifies for daycare assistance from the state. They will pay me to watch him so she can go back to work, but only if I show that I'm CPR certified, am not a felon, don't have felons living with me etc.
SO-yes, I did have to do paperwork.

I'm sorry about where things are with Maca too. It's depressing. I love him. There's so much potential-but, potential is nothing without action.

GG does get more of my time in a way.. because he's here still. But, sleeping with him every night... I don't think so. There've been many times over the years when that opportunity existed (twice Maca moved out before and when he's worked out of town), but I treasure the opportunity to have my alone time too...
