Dinner last night went so so well!! It was SUCH a relief to be able to sit and talk with someone and not have to feel like I have to hide my thoughts, emotions, what we are going through, and even more to get advice from someone who has walked a similar path in many ways. It was great, we talked for like 5.5 hours and I had a blast! :)
She basically looked me in the eyes and told me I am brat and self-centered. :-p Normally that would really offend me, but for some reason it didn't. Probably because A: I know it's true and B: I didn't feel like she was saying it in a "You are a horrible person" way, but more like "Ok, now that you know this what are you going to do about it?" :)
She gave me some really great feedback and some good ideas and motivations.
I have been bratty in a non-depressed way all day and My Man SAYS he is going to cover me in stripes... I have my doubts, but we shall see. Maybe I can convince him to take pictures. ;-)
