 Things have been going pretty well. I am enjoying my classes again. Possibly because this is the last semester! ( unless I decide to go streight for my DSW, the kind of crazy thing I would do). I didnt get stranded for a double on Friday after all. Alix was actually off from work so we spent the night together shopping. It was like old times. when we actually had time to enjoy each other. But , like he said last night, all the hard work he is doing now is so that we can enjoy a life together of traveling, and all the finer things. I dig that. Saturday we took Bren out to Antionettes for her birthday.. Really, really, good place by the way. Today is my usual laundry, clean up the place and cook for the first few days of the week day. and I am cool with that too.

So it has been a super long time. Things are actually really good. Love my other half and all the effort and sweat he is putting into establishing himself and our fiscal betterment. I have begun my spring semester, my LAST semester of school... At least for now... Maybe a DSW is in the future, but not near future. I have three intense classes this semester, and I can handle it because it is my last semester and I am really excited about graduating in May. I mean, seriously, this is a huge accomplishment. Full time work, Internship and graduate work... I did it for two years, and I will have an MSW... and life is changing... Tonight I start my Thursday classes. I work 8-4 and will be in class from 5-10... But it is the beginning of the end, and I can handle that.

 It has been a long time since I have posted anything. Life became so overwhelming. Working in mental health, interning in mental health and going to school and balancing family. It was opressive at times. At times I felt trapped for various reasons. But I do see a light at the end of the tunnel. I offically have just one more semester until I get my MSW and I will be done with school. DONE. and life will change drastically, I see it beginning to happen all ready. There are some things that I am particularly grateful for that have remained constant supports for me. 1) I have finally found a Normal, supportive and all around amazing man that never ceases to amaze me. He is making sacrafices right now to assure the lifestyle that I and he would like to achieve. And unlike me, he does this without complaining. I feel truly blessed. 2) the person reading this right now, you know who you are. You have been in my life longer than anyone other than my parents. Seeing you every week grounds me and fills me with hope and laughter. I could have never asked for anything more in a friendship. So i guess things are on the up and up.

My Birthday:
I secluded and it was joyous. spent time with my family. Took my mama wheel chair shopping which i hope we will never have to do ever again. I got some really nice things, sparkly things, 5000 song carrying things that will bring me into the 21st century, and nifty things to wear.. in a size 4 which is even niftier!

This weekend:
Friday: dinner with the folks, after hectic work. I have been exhausted .

Saturday: school, and waking up early, ick. then a car show and beach. home to make dinner for two of my most favorites. ( One was so grateful after two months of college food, she gave me a kiss and thanked me for an amazing meal.) I almost cried. I was just so happy to have Mel home. and she is so ALIVE! and making great choices at school and really getting involved and I am just, well, very, very proud and happy for her. It is now her time to shine. I passed out somehwere between 9 and ten pm, it was after a long visit with an old friend of Alix's... 

Sunday: I continued sleeping.. and sleeping... then it was time for laundry, two process recordings, a walk on the boardwalk, a picking up of Melody, a perparing of dinner and special baked goods for the family. We took Melody back to New Paltz at around 9:30 and got home at 1:15am...

It's monday. I am working 4-12am... and mondays are painful....

Friday:

After an unbelieably packed day ( moving a resident out (( both physical labor aspect and mountains of paperwork), walking student building surveyors through the entire building for renovations, monthly budget planning times 16,  weekly allowance times 16, weekly progress notes and collateral contacts times 16, intake planning, 4 individual sessions, and a more than useless coworker.... I had a decent family dinner only hindered by my anger and resentment for school the next day

Saturday:

Bernie and Linda appeared at my doorstep around 7ish to embark upon our journey to Fordham. Alix's GPS made the driving bearable.
My seminar teacher had the SAME experience that I had at FEGS and almost walked out on social work too... It was meant to be.. I am now feeling less angry and resentful about Saturday classes. 
Laundry and some time spent with the Silbergs
Cooked dinner for Alix and enjoyed his company for a while until we both passed out from exhaustion

Sunday:

It was a day off! Alix took me to the city for perfume shopping, with the top down. You havent driven through the city until you have driven with the top down. 
Lunch together and then to the home of origin
We all had a nice dinner together

I am truly doing my best to work on my seasonal issues. really and truly. But truth is, I hate the cold. I hate the grey... and it is coming upon us...

This has really been a year of so many gifts for me. I truly feel blessed as things seem to be coming together and as I continue to pour effort into improving myself spiritually, physically, scholastically and in my career. Hoovie made such a wonder first night of Rosh Hashanah for my family and tonight is my night. I am making a full feast; Apricot chicken ( 22lbs of) , Home baked Challah Bread, 3 trays of sweet noodle Kugle and one tray of brownies, apples and honey, all for the 16 residents of my group home. It will be a sit down dinner. I scrubbed the eating area, laid out table clothes and set the table as I would in my OWN HOME. Because it is a home, and these guys deserve it, all of it. And I just cant wait to see their faces tonight as they enjoy! Good Yantif , all.
