Where oh where to start? Em and I are okay, thanks Wien, that’s as good as place as any to start. Words seem to escape me as of late. I’m tired, but what else is new. I have a new second job thanks to the silly boy; he sent me the listing. It’s similar to what I’m doing now and has a lot of potential. So the continued work from home, good pay for this area and room for advancement just about make up for the fact that I don’t love my job. Its what I’m good at sure, but there’s no passion in it. I’ll make my way back to school as soon as Em and I can both handle it. So until then I’m just thankful to be gainfully employed.

Em’s had a pretty rough go of it lately. Bub showed up with a police escort on her birthday under the pretense that he was returning her things from when she was there last, and to confiscate my license plate (seriously, don’t ask). Unfortunately it sent her into a tailspin that we’re still not fully recovered from, but we’re on our way. Her doc thinks it may be COBPD or childhood onset bi-polar disorder. Which would explain so much and at least it’s treatable. I dunno, something’s gotta give here. Maybe this is the light at the end of the tunnel. We’ll see.

Honestly, I have a whole litany of things that I could justifiably complain about, however, bitchy, whiney people bug the shit outta me so I refuse to go there. Just know that we’re ok, that we have our good days and bad days like anyone, and that one way or another we’re gonna make it. I have beautiful, incredible people in my life that are there for me through thick and thin, just as you all have been, and I am grateful for each and every one of you. I want so much to return to this outlet with some measure of continuity, but the words come when they come whether I like it or not.

I'm glad to hear from you and know that you and your daughter are doing ok. I have you on my google reader so I was thrilled when your post popped up this morning. Just know that there are people out here that you've never met that are thinking of you and praying for you. And that think you are talented and inspiring.

Glad to see you posting again. I'm sorry to hear that Em is having trouble. I will keep her in my prayers as you move forward. Bub seems to create choas when ever he shows up.
I guess it's good that you're working but it's a shame it's not doing something you like.
It's wonderful that you have good people in your life to share the good times and the not so good times. I miss you when you are not here posting but I do understand that keeping up a blog can become a chore sometimes. I hope you and Em are enjoying the fall.
Did you have a good time visiting family? Did you get to meet the silly boy? Are you finally divorced?

So glad you had a chance to update us, but sorry to hear Em's been having a tough time - so stressful for you both.

You can always whine and complain to us. I doubt anyone would think you bitchy for doing so, but I do understand not wanting to dwell on things that don't bring you happiness. Press on, my dear ... press on.

"Did you have a good time visiting family? Did you get to meet the silly boy? Are you finally divorced?" - Just in case you missed it in NOL's post :p

(((hugs for you both))
