How bad does life suck when I dread Friday...

This doesn't just apply to romantic partners or family.

and once you realize you've lost those things....get them back.

Tomorrow.  Whatever happens else happens I'm reclaiming who I am.  With some of this...

and a little of this....

I'm not proud that I've allowed myself to be broken, but I'll be damned if I'm going to stay that way.

(none of the cryptic whingijng is referring to the extremely supportive!r. Buffy, either of the young Messers Buffy, or mini-Buffy.  Or the four legged cadre of buffettes.)

Amen!  People who poke you down in a hole, making you question your worth and intelligence... well, they have a special place.

Tomorrow is another day, and then it is the WEEKEND  :)

Best of luck for tomorrow!

I may put your goldfish meme as my wallpaper for awhile. It's stupid, but I keep panicking at the prospect of 10 (ish) weeks of summer vacation with just me and the kids together day after day after day. I haven't scheduled any of the swimming lessons, dance classes, or whatever that I kept saying all school year, "Maybe you can do that during summer vacation." I feel silly to be so scared of change. It just sucks to not have any time that I can depend on someone else taking charge of the kids for a few hours. A few random hours on the weekend just doesn't measure up to a predictable school schedule. 

Anyway, that's what's giving me a borderline panic attack. I really hope your reclaiming of your identity goes well tomorrow. Show 'em a really scary shark fin!

10ish weeks of school holidays in one go? Definitely worthy of a major panic I reckon.  I thought six was bad! 

Buffy, good luck with getting sorted whatever needs sorting, be brave like that great goldfish!

     I don't remember, or perhaps I never knew, how old are your kiddos? 

Today is the first day of break and I am in the same boat. Going to the community pool in a bit.

Buffy, keep us posted!

Still standing...thanks for the love!  I'm okay...better than I've been in a very long time, actually.

Dignity and self-respect reclaimed and they look damn good on me, if I do say so myself. :)

5 and 7. I feel a bit less panicky today, but I'm still a disorganized mess. :pb_rollseyes: Sometimes it seems like parenting magnifies all my flaws. It's good to remember that most parents in the US are in the same position as far as filling in their summer break. :pb_smile:

Yay! I'm glad for you. :my_heart: (Sorry I vented all over your blog. Next time I'll try to make it to Venting and Complaining in time. :my_smile: )

Don't be silly - vent away!  And I totally know how you feel - it's daunting when they are that age.  Too young to be unsupervised, too old to be entertained by a game of peekaboo and a nap.

Thanks! I wasn't too worried that you'd mind.

All those things my teachers said over the years about not using my time wisely turned out to be true. It's so annoying when that happens!

      I was thinking this after the latest post. I wonder how many of their "patients" are still alive one year after their "treatment." I'd also like to know how many people begin actual medical treatment after leaving there. Eta my guess is not many. If they're deep enough into the woo to go there in the first place* they may dig their heals in further upon leaving. 
       

      *and wealthy enough. Even if they fundraise and sell everything they can to go down there there's still some degree of financial ability to do it. (On that note I wonder how many "patients" or their families come back to the states destitute. 

      Someone posted a link about this way upthread somewhere - a youtube guy who went searching to see how many patients who had started GoFundMes had evidence of being alive or deceased a couple of years post treatment. The stats were pretty much what you'd expect

      I find it strange having a name theme. I'm used to John and Jane happen to start with the same letter and since they stopped at two they technically had a "theme" but only because those were the names they liked. It wasn't some "we have to come up with a name we like that fits the theme." Maybe it's just me but I find it weird that so many second gen Kellers have an intentional theme. (Outside of bible names or something. Eta so I guess I'm used to "bible names" being a theme.  But starting with the same letter is weird to me)

      I think the whole idea of a “name theme” is kind of foreign to me. The biggest family I know personally have 3 kids. More than 3 is really uncommon here. Parents will usually gravitate towards somewhat similar types of names (in terms of social background connotations, modern vs. traditional, similar “vibe”), but I’ve never heard of anyone with a naming theme outside of FJ.

      Honestly, they could actually be working and still grifting for extra cash. We obviously can’t expect honesty or true transparency from them!

      I would almost be proud of them if they were pulling this off.

      We have such an obscure naming theme that I’m not sure if my partner even noticed I did it! The obvious one is that all of us have names that are technically biblical, but so common that people don’t automatically associate it. The other 2 things with my kids nobody has ever picked up on.
