I've really got nothing much to say. Spent the day in and out of the water, taking photographs, watching children play and talking with friends. Pretty much just felt like a normal human.
I need to look up information on the kinds of activities recommended for lowering intensity. I think they were in Mary Sheedy Kurcinka's workbook on Parents, Kids and Power Struggles. But it could have been somewhere else.
I found it, but then I lost it again. Here is what I remember: exercise, repetitive jaw motions, and organizing activities (legos, knitting, puzzles) but that isn't the wording she uses. I guess I will have to wait until I am home to find out...
I meant to finish this post but
in the night sky
remainders of my day
(and beginnings of the next)
under a Friendly, laughing
Milky Way sky

shooting stars sped by...
Grateful Crap: F/friends.
took meds (150mg sertraline, 300mg bupropion)
took chewable B vitamins
remained calm even in the face of a houseful of 5 children who did not always get along (but mostly did)
