Back to seeing some friends I have not seen in a while

Good Morning!

 My word for today is small, as tonight, I start back with a small group of women in my church, who I have not been with in about 5 years.  This year I started going back to church and that also means getting back into a small group.  About 5 years ago, I left this small group to start Celebrate Recovery to deal with my co-dependency.  When I started Celebrate Recovery, I had a group to go to on Monday nights, a women's support group that I went to on Wednesday night and the general meeting was on Friday and then I had church on Sunday.  Once I finished the group on Monday night and a friend of mine, who led the group on Wednesday left the area, I backed away from the whole thing as I was very overwhelmed.  I tried to find a small group that I felt comfortable with, but never did.  I just need people to accept me and just be a listening ear.  I don't want people to try to change me, as I am working on myself anyway.

Today is mainly a day at home.  I am currently doing my hour of social.  Next, I will work on finances. Oh such fun!  After finances, I did my hour of house stuff.  Made lunch for Mari and I.  This afternoon, I plan to take a nap, run errands and read another hour for my docent training.  Rory called and VA is extending his sick leave until February 15, 2013 and he wants me to put him in for State Disability.  I am not sure how to do it, but he wants me to do it before tomorrow at 5.  He always puts everything off on everybody else, especially when it comes to things having to do with the computer.    He is out getting lunch, then going to VA to get his sick leave form and then he is going to Social Security to turn in the sick leave form.  I would like to take a nap in our room, but I am not sure how long he is going to be gone.  AARGH!  I did get a nap in our room, as Rory ended up going to Santa Ana to State Disability and did not get home until after 4.  Got  errands done.  I went to Wal Mart and maybe it is not that bad.  Soy Milk is less expensive than Target and Smart and Final.  Got my reading done.  Mari made dinner and now Rory is complaining that he did not get enough to eat.  We had beef stew and it is similar to the serving size I usually feed him.  I am out the door to small group.

Here is my picture of small-a small hibiscus
It took me about 30 minutes to find the place, but thankfully, I did.  It was nice to see some old friends. Got home and going to do some reading and then going to bed.

Good Night!  Trudi
