good evening ladies, Purefire, how did your presentation go? and hope4me, yes I have been there, why is it the more we have the more we want? well I guess we are feeding our cravings and they get stronger. It is a hard cycle to break!
to everyone else
I have been having good days, I am very grateful for that. I haven't slipped into my usual 'hating Christmas' mood, it would be so great if that doesnt happen this year for once.
Today I checked to see if I could get the generic of Wellbutrin XL because I don't have insurance anymore....the pharmacist checked, and he said I AM receiving the generic. I said, 'you mean the generic costs like $124 for a month?' and he checked...and said 'actually you paid $136 last month'
Well I guess it is worth it. Yes, it is worth it to me, and probably my DH would agree
Today was a Cookie Delivery day, I gathered and bagged and ribboned many bags of my homemade cookies and dolled myself up, and delivered to my hairstylist (who also had a little gift for me!!! how unexpected and nice!!) my summer job boss, the two bank branches we use, and some others. I still have more on my list but maybe on my way to work tomorrow.
I think I'm feeling really grateful and thankful for what I have; my sister checked herself into the psych unit of local hospital on Sunday because she was suicidal. Not the first time..and she has been in and out of 2 major rehab facilities here 4 times. So terrible alcoholism and mental illness. She has driven her fiance away for good (threatened to kill him one too many times) and yesterday she did a tirade on my poor mother, blaming all her problems on our mom and making personal attacks on her. And today she was released
I dont' know if I've told it here but the alcoholism in my family hit my maternal grandfather; my mother; her brother; my sister; and my half-brother. How lucky was I to dodge that horrible bullet!!! My uncle pulled himself out of it many years ago; my mom on her own 1 1/2 years ago ( I am sooo proud of her!!) My sister comes home from AA meetings with a bottle of wine. Yes.
So I think I am feeling pretty grateful for simple things
