Labor Day weekend is over...
August flew by in the blink of an eye. Kids are back at school - how can I have a 7th grader??? And how can my baby be a 3rd grader???
My sister and her two boys and two cats were here for three weeks. They are moving across country and stayed with us while her hubby started work/looked for a place to live. It all went well - great having her here and hanging out with my nephews - 3 and 1years old. My sister has some anxiety issues as well, but I have been hesitant to tell her about this site. She would be a welcome addition - she is funny and kind and smart and clever. But this is my oasis. She would know who I am, and the blessed anonimity of this site would disappear for me.
I still have such a hard time being weak - vulnerable - to my family. See? I even think "weak" with its negative connotations versus "vulnerable" with its neutral connotation. This is my space to be vulnerable - to share - to vent - to be free. I can't share it with her. Not yet. am I being selfish? or am I putting myself first for once?
They are at their final destination, at least we are on the same coast now.
