Turned out to be a really good idea.
Note how when I didn’t write “done!” after completing the task on the bottom left, one of my kids did for me… Exclamation point and underline… just like me.
Tomorrow I leave for Montauk at 5am. Spending the week with Maggie and the kids, who’ve been there since Wednesday. I hope there’s some restorative interaction for me and Maggie. Although when I told her that I was looking forward to being her boyfriend again, she told me that she was, too… and then started to bring up lots of negative things about me, and then either her phone died or she hung up on me.
Maggie things the medication I’m on is making me less happy. That might be somewhat true. On the other hand, this medication I’m on has brought my life into focus, and seeing how much there is to do at home, and at work, I’ve started doing it. I don’t want her to take it personally, but she does. And as I tried to point out before, there were a lot of concurrent stressors. This was definitely a two-way street.
Wow. This post turned depressing. Sorry about that.
I’m going to do my best to facilitate other folks having a fabulous time. That’s my goal.
Love to all. Even you, the big-bellied dude who threatened to throw the skater kid off the train because he didn’t like his shirt.
