it is snowing outside right now

I haven't posted for a while.  For many reasons.  
  1. I haven't really felt like it - I had too much to say and nothing all at the same time
  2. My daughter & husband finally came to blows - mostly because daughter is busy being 16 and husband had finally had enough.  This caused much stress on all 3 of us.  For many, many days.
  3. My computer has been shutting off at the oddest times, resulting in "check disks" that sometimes ran more than 24 hours only to shut off again.  Last night the screen hinges broke completely and the screen was hanging on by a cord at each end!!
Last night husband took me to the Apple store and we came home with a MacBook.  I'm so happy.  It is so light.  And now I can iChat....well, I could if I knew anyone that could also do that.....

OK.  My fitness has been on track through all of my upheaval.  In some ways, that was the only thing to get me through it all.  I am still running (around 5 times a week), doing weights 3 times a week (one week 2x upper body, 1x lower body, next week the opposite), doing my belly dance once a week, yoga once a week...and walking the dog around 5k a day.  Yay me, right?

WELL....I've also been tracking my points.  Haven't made it ONE day on points.  It just shocks me that there was ever a time when that was enough food.  WTF?????

Daughter & husband have started talking again.  Sort of.  Daughter is not applying herself at school.  Not really making any effort to be part of our little family.  It is so frustrating - she has so many opportunities available to her...and she is squandering them all.  Sometimes I wonder if we have done our children any favours by giving them all that we didn't have.  Hmpf!!

Hmm.....sadly, I don't have much more of an update.  I have over 300 blog entries to so much of my life right now. 

I have been feeling very lonely.....kinda since Christmas....everyone seems so busy....I spend most of my days talking to my dog...and while he is good company...he never really has much to say!!  I was hoping to go back to work part time, but as yet have not heard anything.  I like many things about being home, like being here to get daughter off to school, making a kick ass supper every night...being able to go to the gym whenever I want in the day....but it is very lonely.....

Ugh - I think the snow (and clouds that come with it) is really getting me down.  I need spring to be here for real!!!!

Have a healthy day bloggers!!!

    I am a Mac fan too :)

  2. Daughter sounds like she is just being a 16 year old. It wasn't until I was in my 20's that I really understood how much family mattered. But I was a big geek and always did good in school - I was one of those kids that actually loved school.

    Hang in there my fellow Buffy fan! Sounds like you are kicking some major booty in the gym!

  4. My daughter is 19 and sometimes it is a wonder I haven't strangled her...I am with you, we did NOT help her by providing all we did. eesh.

    Thanks for the comments re: my pups. I appreciate it, and glad to see you posting again!
