doing my best

seriously pissed.
been working on coming up with a solution.
have one. does not involve blogger.
we WILL have a dare up this week...we're just not 100% sure how/where.
working on it.

I know it's not Wednesday, but the bloggage is not happening as frequently due to various busy stuff so everyone shut up and let me bitch for a minute. I mean, do they even know how hard we've worked at our blog? Could you not at least write us back and say something!?? Despite feeling somewhat deflated and seriously disappointed by the whole thing, we'll spring back. Of that I'm sure.

Getting some serious inspiration from the Dare book. It is the bomb-diggity.

Jaxon is starting a new daycare tomorrow. Sometimes he just doesn't get it. He thought perhaps he was going sometime near his birthday (October???) but I set him straight: "no babes, you're going to the new daycare tomorrow." Jaxon: {gasp} "I'm dooomed!". Had me in stitches out on the street at 7:20 this morning. The new daycare is so wicked. Hot lunch, hot snack and two times a week even a hot lunch. Out-trips 3 out of 5 days of the week. Waterslides, Science World, the beach, pools, park across the street...good times.

I'm totally going to try that magnesium thing that Ruth commented about on the last post. Can't hurt to try, right? (Thanks Ruth!) Anxiety is pretty well under control for me, thanks to modern medicine. The thing is, my goal is to come off the meds some day. I know that if I eat properly, sleep enough, have enough "me" time and get lots of exercise I'll be OK. While some days I might be trying to be Superwoman, I don't think I actually ever get there. I'm just doing the best I can. It's all I can do.

And now I'm falling asleep - must go.

For getting things done and crossing them off the list.

PS. Thanks for posting your grateful comments...I do love to hear them so if ever you feel compelled then write it down - either here or where you are. Makes it more real that way.

I'm an old friend of Erika and Gabby's...who led me to your Dare site and now to here!

There is another server, I think it's called WordPress or WorldPress-not sure, but most folks in Europe have switched from Blogger to this server for similar reasons. Random info, but it might work for you...

I'm really sorry about your worries and hope the site mess gets resolved soon-you guys have a kick a** site, and I've loved "lurking" through your stuff.
Good Luck!

Thanks for mentioning me on your blog. I wanted to follow up by giving you an important link that might make sure you do take that magnesium: http://www.amazon.com/Magnesium-Factor-Mildred-Seelig/dp/1583331565/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4/103-5843681-5379022?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1186116104&sr=8-4
It is a review of a book at amazon and you might be surprised at the power of it.
By the way, I went to a class tonight called 'Navigating Midlife Transitions on the River of Life' at a womans college. I'm only 40 but feel some changes and one of the gifts of midlife is humility and gratitude and I mentioned that I followed your blog and how you chose to place gratitude on your blog on a very regular basis and the other 7 ladies in the class were impressed and inspired. Anyhow, try the magnesium and be very gentle to yourself, which is also very important.
