( Part 2Collapse )
My biggest concern right now is, what if she does start to treat me the way I want to be treated, and I still can't forgive her? What if I continue to put blame on her and jump to the conclusion that she is trying to hurt me, even when she has made an effort to prove that is not the case? Can I forgive her for the hurt she has caused me? And if I can't, am I really the person I always thought I was? Am I the person I think I am? Where do I go from here?

Me: Because vacuum maintenance is your job description.
Him: Right, because vacuum destruction is yours.
Me: And that is why we work so well together!
And yesterday, when A watched me put a patch on a pair of jeans that had ripped...
"When I get bigger and I am a mommy I am going to sew a patch on my pants, too."

I have decided to walk in the March of Dimes March for Babies with my Mothers of Multiples Club for the second time. The walk is on April 26th in Newark, DE. As many of you know, twins have a much higher likelihood of being born prematurely than singletons. C and A were born at 36 weeks, 6 days, which is not considered premature for twins, so we were lucky. Also, I was a preemie, born a month early. So March of Dimes is near and dear to my heart.
Please consider helping out by sponsoring me in my walk. Thanks! Here is more information, for anyone who is curious:
The March of Dimes has changed the name of its biggest event to March for Babies. It's a great change because it makes it very clear exactly who I am walking for -- all babies. I am very excited to be a part of the “first” March for Babies; please support my participation.
Although the name of this signature event changed, the mission did not. The March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will support lifesaving research, services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start.
Please help by donating today!
The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

So, since many of you are good writers, can you give me any advice on learning to develop ideas? It may just not be a learnable skill, and I may be out of luck, and if that is the case, feel free to tell me...
I know I will probably never do anything except write for fun. Watching fencerm2 's struggles, I am not sure I am up for that situation... But I would love to try writing for fun.

Yesterday, I ordered the rest of the series through Amazon. They were scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I spent yesterday re-reading Twilight, and reading the unfinished one that is online (it got released before all the editing was done, and now may never be finished.) I had planned to actually get stuff done today, since I expected productivity to drop tomorrow with the arrival of the rest of the books. But, darn Amazon, was too good, and they came today.
And partway through New Moon, I am bawling my eyes out and terribly depressed. I flipped forward to see when this part would be over with... and it isn't for awhile. I do not want to keep reading it, but I can't stop. I am now just reading to get through this part.
I hope I still manage to have my act together at Birka this weekend, and that these books don't toss me into a depression. I want to write more, but I need to read more instead....

And then tomorrow just comes another day of taking care of the Little Darlings, so this is my only me time, too... That doesn't help.
Although King of the Hill just came on, and that might just be a motivator for me....
