Hi all,
 
Today is my daughter's last game of the Volley Ball season.  I've only been to one of her games, as that is all I have been able to handle - and that was a HUGE struggle for me.  But I am bound and determined to go see her at her last game.  I've timed it so that I will take my afternoon Ativan right before we leave - hoping this will help with the anxiety.  I know that if I need to I can always step outside for a few minutes to pull myself together.
 
I just want to take this baby step so I can see her play again and I need all the strength I can get.  I will be thinking of my HW family, knowing they want me to be able to be strong and do this.
 
I'll let you know later how it went.
 
Now it's time to take the banana bread out of the oven, change my clothes and whatever else I need to do before we leave.  LOL

Hi everyone,

I'm back from the game - I made it through it, but it sure was a struggle the last half hour or so.  But I did it.  The girls had fun and it was fun seeing Heather play.

Now I'm exhausted - I feel as though I've been running all day long and I was only gone a couple of hours.

Thank you all for your support, it means a lot.

Thank you all soo very much for your support - there were several times towards the end of the game that I thought of all of you and your support.  I was able to draw on that support to get through to the end.
 
I can't believe how exhausting it was just to be gone for a couple of hours and how late I slept this morning.  I woke up, scratch that LOL - actually got up this morning just long enough to get the kids out the door for school.  Then I went back to bed for 3 more hours.  So half my day was already gone by the time I really got up.
 
So now I'm going to get busy on some sewing jobs that I have, do my daughter's nails when she gets home for the halloween dance tonight and then fix supper.  Sounds like it's going to be a busy afternoon.  BUt I'm feeling good - partly because of my accomplishment last night and partly because I got LOTS of sleep  yeah :-) .
 
By the way, the Banana Bread is awesome and almost gone.  Things like that don't last long in my house.  :-)
 
Thanks again for your support, this really is a wonderful family to belong to.
 
((((HUGS)))) to you all.

Well done Wen,

glad you got some well needed rest, it is exausting, i know myself just walking around the block twice and then to the beach briefly really takes it out of me, and i was used to working 16-18 hour days.

And im happy to see your feeling great as well you sound really happy and you should be, you kicked a big goal, CONGRATS.

(((((((HUGS))))))) to all.. :-)
