need a kick in the butt here!

Last Update: May 21, 2015

I've been off track for a bit and think I need a kick in the butt to get back on track. We are having to put our place up for sale. Very unexpected. Still trying to figure out how to handle it and where to go next. Was getting through the shock of that last week when my spouse decided we had to go to Quebec on Friday until Sunday. 11 hour drive for us. Then to Ottawa on Saturday - a 4 hour, then back home on Sunday - 7 hrs. So tired. Still putting the pieces together. It will be OK one way or another.

I discovered that someone had signed up for the free offer through jaaxy while I was away. That was cool. Hope they sign up further.

So as for the kick in the butt, I seem to be a little slow on getting back into the next steps. Getting easily distracted - AARRRGHH to me!

Sorry - not complaining - just sharing.

Sorry to hear about having to put your house up for sale and all the changes you are about to go through. Just to let you know that you are not the only one who needs that kick in the hiney. Sometimes you have to just take care of other things and take a rest from WA, but you will get back on track and all will turn out well. At least that's what I always like to think!!

Be kind to yourself. That's a lot of stress to deal with. I just finished a major move myself that was unexpected and I couldn't have done WA while I was doing all that. So, lower your expectations for yourself and do something nice for yourself. And here is a hug ***! for you. You need lots of them. Moving is hard. Especially when unexpected. Good luck to you. I hope you land on your feet and that everything works out well for you and yours.

Hi Daisy,
Count me in with the group hug--several group hugs. Like most of us have, you are handling a setback. Tell you what you already know. It's not what happens to us that matters; it's how we handle it. Get back up on the horse and give HIM a little kick in the butt. We're with you..Dick

A hug is better but if you can think of how my leg could reach your butt let me know and please return the favour when my foot connects with your butt!

You are most welcome. Our WA family has kept me going many times. Moving? As a Preacher's kid and later as a Preacher's wife I have done than more times than I recall. I am sending more hugs for you.
Best wishes!

Jump back in the water is nice, but on a serious note, WA isn't going anywhere. Deal with your real life issues, then come back when you're good and ready. Pick up where you left off :)

Hey Daisy, just get back in. The kick will not even help. Just get back in. Is like a stumble and fall, what do you do? That's right, you get back up. If I can offer any help please don't hesitate to ask. Take care.

I can offer my but too. Before my trip I am really without discipline, drifting as one fellow member told.

Thanks for the offer. But I am learning that Hugs are much better. Here's hugs for you too.

I know how you feel I soooo easily distracted. I have had to make a daily planner and be really strict with it or I would get nothing done. Plus I am also having building work done to my house and I keep getting side tracked with that.
Reply
DaisyB Premium
That's the easiest way to get sidetracked because it is often so noisy. I really appreciate that you connected. Thank you.

I have had internal walls knocked out and rebuilt in slightly different locations. Had new doorways made and old ones blocked up and floors ripped up it has been awful.

sounds to me like you just need to give yourself some TLC

you have some new stress in you life with the sudden need to sell you place, I also assume this will mean finding a new place to live

in the short term -- till you get stablized again -- give yourself some slack

that does not mean to let yourself off the hook, but it does mean to be good to yourself

hope this helps!
