I doubt that my friend is going to contact me as usual.
It was so nice when I didn't have to kill myself working so I could pay the bills and take care of my kids. But, when your ex is a lazy selfish jackass that doesn't seem to give two shits about his kids and won't help me anymore (other than child support), I guess I'm stuck with killing myself so my kids have most of what they need and a little of what they want.

I can relate to some of this- I'm lucky that I enjoy what I do and I've no issues taking care of Kid but footing the bill for everything gets a little frustrating.
I'm hoping I sleep well tonight.
Sometimes it would be too easy to point out the hypocrisy of people who like to throw stones as they notch up their tough-guy belt, but live in a glass house themselves. Sometimes I think it would be fun to give them a taste of their own medicine and see how they like it. But that's not the kind of person I want to be.

Hopeful I might be able to forge a career from it.
Thinking maybe all that trauma was worth it if I can help more than one other person escape...
Remembering my Mum again today, I knew this week would not be easy with the first Mother's Day but setting foot for the first since she died hit me hard Sad.

So sorry. It hit me hard as well. Mum died 2 years ago 11th May, and as Mothers day here is at the end of may it was only a couple of weeks after. I went into a supermarket full of all the stuff and I just couldn't stop in there. When I left I found I had put my purse down somewhere in the store and forgotten it. Had to cancel and report all my bank cards and everything to the gendarmes. Then someone found it with all the money and everything inside and handed it in to the cops.

I know how it is when you se all the stuff there and think you won't be buying it. Particularly if some years you were thinking OMG what on earth shall I get this time? A friend told me to buy something like flowers or a candle and have it at home on the day to remember her by. It helped me, sort of. Made me cry, but that's not such a bad thing. Anyway. Hugs to you.

Thanks again Jag, just been and bought a lovely candle :-).

It's difficult when a special day or anniversary comes around and your loved ones are no longer there. I know from experience how that feels.
Sending you a huge hug from me

I used to enjoy what I do. Well, I guess I still do a little, but before I didn't have to kill myself to work as much as they will allow.
Between my job and my kids and all the other responsibilities, I very rarely don't have any time for myself. Blue moons happen more. lol

Yep, it's kind of a kick in the ass when goals you've worked hard to achieve suddenly seem a bit out of reach....I guess there's things that're completely out a persons control (often due to other people) that have the greatest effect. It just makes ya have to dig in a little harder, change a few plans, and accept that some of the things a person wants might not happen. I'd rather be happy and appreciative trying to reach attainable goals than miserable and judgmental living a pipe dream or pissing and moaning over some whimsical ideal....
Today is not going to be productive at all. Yesterday I felt quite a bit more cheerful, but I feel like today is going to be a long day.

Cavey

I'm remembering how I felt when I first arrived here and how different I feel today.
