Saturday Noon Rambles

So that I can let go of some of my brain activity, I am going to attempt a quick "word vomit" in order to try to sort some other things that require my attention. Forgive me for any lack of cohesiveness or topics of interest.

  • I never did make it to the farmers' market this morning for the berries, and will not get to another in time for them.
  • The divorce is now final . The judge stated that she "went through it all with a fine-toothed comb" and she made her ruling, putting some things in the order that were surprising. It was meant to send a message. The "other" party will not be stopped by orders, and has already violated within 24-hours one small one. It will be up to my daughter to not let up, but she just wants it all to stop. Unfortunately, idealism is a difficult "-ism" to let go of when the reality of the world (and others around us) continues to slap us out of it. At some point, she has to don her armor and climb on the warrior's steed.
  • My nephew's second soccer game is today. I will not be going, but Uncle RGD will go. It is over an hour drive for me, and I cannot make it today. I will try next Saturday.
  • I have to get DVDs back to the libraries in two counties. I am planning to drive to the one to drop it off so there are no fines imposed. I also have have seasons two of both Scandal and Homeland awaiting my pick-up from the local library.
  • This week is RGD's surgery. He seems to be in better spirits, and is finally joking around. I know it is not easy, but he will get through this.
  • I had plans to start my "sorting project," but, as I began writing this, my daughter called. She sounds like she has been (figuratively) beaten up already today. ( She really needs some positive thoughts, energy and prayers for her to deal with these next few years. ) That she would call me shows that she is changing a bit. Her pattern over the last two decades has not been to reach out. I am glad to see that we are beginning a new chapter as parent-child to adult-adult. We are going to talk in a little while to see if we can figure something out to spend a little time together today or tomorrow. We are well-over an hour apart in distance, but this is time to try to make it happen.
  • I am officially over the halfway mark to my second payout. It has taken me fewer than eight weeks to arrive. If I choose to keep up my current pace, it is possible (though not likely) for me to have my third payment by the end of the year. Interesting to think about, but not sure I want to fire up the after-burners to do so.

So these are my brain's ramblings for today. I have things yet to write, but not convinced that I have time to do so this weekend. I need to shower so I am ready to receive my daughter's call.

Have a great weekend, wherever you are!

Those divorces, they can be rough. Nobody enjoys them but the lawyers.

CoralLevang wrote on September 19, 2015, 4:01 PM

Even attorneys do not enjoy them, per se.

LoudMan wrote on September 19, 2015, 4:19 PM

They like their fees!

Just keep your spirits up and hopefully everything will work out.

I hope that getting all that out left you feeling purged and ready to move on to other things.

Glad the divorce is at least final. Sorry you will miss out on the berries. They are just about done here also. But glad you and your daughter can start getting close again

Positive energy and prayers for your daughter -- and for the mending and meshing of the mother-daughter relationship.

Congratulations on hitting the $10 mark so fast. By the end of today I should up to $9.50. Are you watching the game on Sunday night? Go Packers!!

Skype calls are a good way of being together even if not in the same room. You can see the other person's expressions.

I am going to see if there isn't a market somewhere I've not been that is today. Maybe it's not too late.

Thank you, Eva, for the kind words. We did not meet, but we did have a 3-hour phone call yesterday. emoticon :smile:

CoralLevang wrote on September 20, 2015, 8:48 AM

Congratulations, Paulie . We are neck-and-neck. emoticon :smile:
I will have to see what time the game is. Hawks!

CoralLevang wrote on September 20, 2015, 1:26 PM

Let me clean/declutter and then we can talk Skype. emoticon :winking: Perhaps we can do that someday, too!

CoralLevang wrote on September 20, 2015, 1:27 PM

Thanks, Mark.

For me it is not simply about writing it down. It's also talking about it. What I have found about writing it in this forum is that it is 1. Writing it; 2. Sharing it (appeals to the talking it), and getting some interaction, and 3.) (perhaps as important as the other two) It tempers my telling of the story, if that makes some sense. If I were to talk to a friend, or write simply in my journal, I let things go in a rage, and am not clearly thinking. Here, in this forum, I can express my emotions in ways to show emotion, not just rage or unbridled fear or whatever else there could be if it were over the top. That being said, &VisionofHope , the majority of people are uncomfortable with me sharing things logically and emotionally, at the same time. They do not engage much. Others think I'm so "together," and see me as some sort of saint (I use that term VERY loosely, Pastor emoticon :winking: ) and have no troubles handling life. There are few who see past it, and reach out in a way that is intuitive, friendly, supportive. Recently, I have begun to understand this about myself and how I and others work in the world. It puts a lot of what I have been taught over the years, in perspective.

*laughs* DWDavisRSL Since I have no husband or pets to listen, I have to do it somewhere. I'm just now allowing it out in my writing. I have a lot stored up. emoticon :winking:

Thanks so much Feisty56 . We started last night with a 3-hour phone call. I was invited to go hiking with her and a group of her friends today, but they are going to the foothills of Mt. Rainier, where it will be cold and I have no winter clothes suitable for the colder weather at that elevation. But I think it was a start, simply that she invited me.

You can always drape a large sheet behind you! emoticon :grin:

CoralLevang wrote on September 20, 2015, 2:05 PM

*laughs* Perhaps. It also means that I have to drape a large sheet in front of me. Living alone has had its benefits of wearing anything I want (or nothing at all) when the doors/windows are closed. ROFLMAO emoticon :winking:

I would love to arrange a time for a call sometime. emoticon :smile: Could even do that without my using the camera, I think.
