My Story Re: A Wrinkle in Time

Great post.

It's like anything new, shiny and glorious at the beginning but everything loses its shine after a while and becomes all a lot of the same.

I have lived by what you posted and have always known life wasn't meant to be all new love and new cars or houses and have an appreciation for boring and things we know and love which are old and comfortable.

Unfortunately, MLCers don't.

Keep looking for the good in every moment. Love this. You said you were hanging something I said in your inspiration room Hero. I’m printing this out and I’m going to read it as often as I need—which may very well be every day! Thanks for sharing!!

Hey SF.
Thanks for posting.  Yes, new jeans do get old.....and that article just validated that, so I guess it's the one thing that us LBSers' can count on happening with our H's.  That maybe whatever is happening over there will eventually die a slow death - and then there's a change of some kind.

KIT, I wish I could say i wrote that article. What has helped me tho were to keep some posts that people wrote here on the forum, the ones that really resonated with me, and I've kept them in a notebook to refer back to when I'm in monkey brain mode.  Definitely helps bring me back to center.  Hence, the inspiration wall.  ;)

Thanks for catching up LH!  Good to see you here again.
I've been doing well.  A few strange things occurred with H.  And again, as you LBSers with vanishers or semi vanishers know, anything they say or do can be triggering since we rarely hear from them or see them.

The usual monthly mail/check pick up seemed to have changed up the other day.  H came in thru side garage door this time.  Not using the auto garage door opener as he was doing before. ( I have security cameras so I can view my home when I'm away),  H then came in garage and closed the large auto garage door form the inside, which he had never done before.  Not sure what that was all about.  I also noticed he was driving SS22's pick up truck.  He also seemed to look around garage in a strange way.   I didn't see him leaving with anything or bringing in anything.  So it was a bit strange. 

Other than that, my IL's may stop by tomorrow to show me their newly adopted senior dog.  They are retired and wanted to provide a good home to a senior dog.  I'll be babysitting my nephews little 5 yr old boy on the same day and my sister will be coming to help.  He will be having fun with his aunties!   :D 

I also have a good friend coming to visit next week and will stay with me a couple of days. And a few plans for the holiday weekend after.
Feeling blessed.
