When I was little I hated puking so much that once I wouldn't open my mouth, thinking that would somehow stop the inevitable. It didn't. Sure burned my nose though. I still hate purging. I'd rather suffer for longer than have a painful build-up and then a violent purge followed by general feeling of wellness. Whatever! I can handle the pain for longer if it means feeling a little more in control!
I need to vent, and I apparently need to vent to a crowd so that my throat and neck stop throbbing. I don't want to. I hate this. I loathe this exercise so much. I feel like I've done this so many times, but nothing changes. I hate complaining, even if it's about MYSELF.

It took me by surprise that I still have such a strong emotional response after all this time. Such a tiny little message. I feel every hopeful, pain-filled word. I see my yellow walls, my blue cabinets in the kitchen, and the bouquet of fresh cut flow…
After tons of research and conversations, we've decided to try something completely new. The kids are going to be home with me next year instead of attending school. I'm writing all about it on another blog for anyone interested in following this little adventure :) We probably will also have a few trips to Germany and elsewhere mixed in... SO EXCITED! I get really nervous about telling people about my choices for some reason, but I'm working on it. It was time to finally let everyone know.
