Today I'm following January's lead. I've hit some rough patches. If you've read here earlier, you know the Liar book controversy was intense, and I confess I bit into the issue like a pit bull. I would not let go. I got so wound up, it took a friend to help me back away from the issue. I'm grateful I didn't go sistergirl. And trust me, I came close.
I need a car. I cannot afford a car, but reality is despite my finances, I have to make it work and I'm really, really tired of making it work. Can anyone relate?
I have two daughters. I love them both, but they are girls. They are siblings with a significant age gap. One is a teenager. Can you tell where there is going? Of course, each expects me to take the side of the other and no matter how diplomatic and unbiased I try to be, both feel betrayed. Yes, nothing less than betrayed. Their mother has failed them again. I have failed to understand where she is coming from. ((sigh))
The upside: I'm mentoring two fantastic young women. Please check out Ari at Reading In Color and Tashi at Taste Life Twice. And if by off chance you know my daughters, please don't mention the mentees. It would not be good. Fortunately, while my daughters are proud of what I do, they pay more attention to their lives so I don't expect them to see this. Maude knows the guilt-trippping I'd get behind bragging about somebody else.
