The clouds did an ominous yet amazing dance around the full moon Monday night.

The Road Downhill

A shoe. A dish. The dog. The bills. The kids. The cat. Any one thing can set off his conniption . It really is like watching a child throw the temper tantrum, except it’s an adult. And those are much more frightening.

I just read an article about this. https://divorcedmoms.com/blogs/lizzy-smilez/the-adult-temper-tantrum-could-it-be-a-serious-mental-disorder

While I can see the explanation, I really think it circles back to the fact that many of these men are narcissists (Women can be too) . I’m by no means downplaying a possible other form of mental illness. Based on personal experience, adult fits are not thrown in public. They are not usually thrown at family gatherings or at the workplace. Which means this person has control over when they choose to lose their crap.

They save that conniption for the people they are jealous of and/or believe they are “making their lives miserable” when in truth they are refusing accountability for their own demons and ego.

Drought

Today I really tried to water the roots dangling in the relationship. Dried and withered, I soaked them in laughter, conversations, and kindness. But the immersion didn’t work. Every time I thought there was a moment of toasting, it all comes back to them. What other people had to say was drowned as they pulled the spotlight back to them. No one else can be successful because they did something better. They were more interested in telling/showing how/why they are so fabulous.

But we’re not fabulous. While we the family should be the veins of life, planted deeply and growing sturdy we are alas not deep enough in the world of them. And so the roots continue to shrivel into a world without them.

A way to Save

I don’t do Starbucks. Simply because I make my own coffee every morning and it costs nothing like a small drink. I will however splurge once or twice during the season to get a caramel apple cider. It’s so good!

I took my daughter the other night to get a hot chocolate and my cider. Aaaannnnddd they were out of apple juice. 😭 If I hadn’t gotten the hot chocolate the trip out of the house would have been completely pointless.

When You Can

Things have been so crazy recently that I haven’t had time to volunteer the way I’d like. I always have my kids do it with me when possible. I want them to see the importance of supporting their community and people you don’t know.

So I came across an ad challenging you to “shop blind” and all the sale proceeds go to eye disease research. I loved this idea because it gives you a chance to be truly giving and truly grateful. I am adding the video my daughter helped me put together. She should so be a spokesperson haha!

So I use the blanket on my bed every night. It’s great quality and I have to wrestle with the dogs to use it. The beanie is so fun-if my daughter is willing to share. ❤️

Here is the link. The challenge runs through Dec 7, and the also have a visible store. Though I like the challenge more.
