I know it’s been ages since I’ve been here – and I can’t even blame my computer! I’ve just been working incredibly hard to clean and de-clutter my house so we can sell it…. how one small family of 3 can have so much stuff is beyond me. It’s insane. And so am I, with trying to plow through it all! I have sold quite a bit on Cra*g’s List, and my mom and sister are helping me go thru stuff….well, mostly my mom keeps me on track – if she’s not here, I do stuff like…. well, blog….
I am also having some serious stress issues…. Kiki is showing signs of OCD, and it’s really hard to know what to do. She doesn’t have any compulsive behaviors, it’s the obsessiveness she’s struggling with…. over germs and bad thoughts, mostly. I don’t want to label or catagorize her, by any means… but, I do want to help her…. I’ve been doing a bit of reading on the topic, to see if or what I am really facing. Poor kid. It’s hard for me to talk about it – because I don’t want others to catagorize her or give me silly advice, or tell me I am overreacting – or underreacting…….. it’s all just murky waters where I would prefer not to venture, yet I am getting swept out against my will…. It’s hard, also, with Alan being gone, for one because I don’t have his support (just the physical presence, you know?) plus, because he isn’t here, he isn’t seeing what’s going on, so he can’t understand the full impact of what I am seeing.
Well, I need to get back to working – one of these days soon I hope I can take a visit around and see how all my friends are doing out there!
