Also, Mother's Day is just two months away! Gift exchange last year was fun, but I thought if we are going to do it at all this year, we should try to organize it extra early, to allow time for cross-border pairings to be delivered. Is there interest again this year? Seems like things have been quiet.
Finally back to update. I was hoping to have more to say but nothing too exciting. I'd also be interested in an exchange, but I agree that it has been very quiet.
I've been substitute teaching very regularly for the school district that I interviewed with last month. I'm hoping that even if the job for the next school year doesn't work out that my name will be buzzing in the right ears. I've had lots of great feedback from more than one school about my capability in the classroom, and keep getting calls back to the same schools so that is a big confidence booster. The extra income will be nice too. Things are over with the boyfriend. I'm okay I guess. Things ended in an unexpected way and I'm still kind of processing things.
DD is getting much better with potty training, and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. She's getting so independent also, and wants to at least attempt to put on all clothes; she still has definite opinions about what she wears so getting dressed is an event unless she's sleeping.

lolo918, it's great to hear that substitute teaching is going well for you. Hopefully as far as something for permanent goes, the right thing will come along at the right time. Will keep fingers crossed for you. Sorry about the boyfriend ... be gentle with yourself as you process.
Apologies to all for starting this thread and then disappearing. It's been an emotional roller coaster of a month. DS has been asking questions about the divorce, and saying that he doesn't want to go to his dad's house. Trying to talk to the ex about it only led to me getting triggered by his word salad and transference. Ugh. And on top of that my head has been in a weird place. My social anxiety has me in paranoid mode. I'm fine at work, and out running errands, but when I'm hanging out with friends in a casual setting I'm having a hard time. Like my system is now geared up to worry that friendship will lead to massive, massive pain, since the ex and I started out as friends. I don't quite know what to do with that. But I'm also too busy most of the time to worry about it. I'm trying to walk a fine line between not pushing myself too much, but also not isolating myself to the point that the anxiety is self-fulfilling.

Bought a small travel trailer. Parked in fron of my house for the moment. Im so happy about this. March generally sucked weather wise, and seemed like we were all just existing. It was cold and rainy today. Im trying not to judge April by this particular weekend- I worked/am working- going into a Monday with early release. So completely dead b/c lack of sleep, but vacation starts wed. I typically take a lot of time off in April and October- recharge, reorganize. etc. I need it. Plus a week of camping in 10 days !
