Hi Kathryn: Thanks for your post on my thread … it’s always so lovely to hear from you. After you mentioned decadent ice-cream, I went out for some delicious softserve icecream at our local Dairy Queen.
Hope work went well for you … sometimes, it’s the best thing when we’re anxious about things. I have my fingers crossed for you here in Toronto … hoping for the very best outcome. I, too, have been trying to put myself in your shoes, and it’s hard to even imagine how difficult it must be for you. I think I would probably be an insecure wreck though. For what it’s worth, I think that at 16, Sasha is perfectly capable of contacting your husband herself and the Fester creature should keep out of things at this point. I can understand why she would have made the first contact, but everything after that should be between Sasha and Damien (if indeed he is the father). No matter the outcome, I’m sure you’ll feel some relief that the waiting is over.
On this end, I have not gambled. Had a bit of a trying weekend trying to figure out finances. Still not out of the woods, but perhaps it’s time for me to stop playing stay-at-home-mommy and get my ample butt back to work. That will be my focus this week (I know, I know, I’ve said that before, lol. But kids will be returning to school on September 8, so I’ll have absolutely no excuses after that. Besides, I like money, especially the "new frugal me" … the thought of doubling or tripling debt repayments thrills me!!)
Sending supportive hugs and very best wishes down south.
This moment is all we really have. Be happy in it.
