Sad News

This morning I went on Facebook and saw messages that were all being sent to a Facebook friend of mine.  They said things like, 'I'll miss you' and 'I don't know what I'll do without you' and then I saw the words 'Rest in peace'.  What a way to find out someone you know died!
I went to her wall and saw a huge number of memorial messages and then below them, I saw her own last posts and status updates.  It was eerie looking at her last days and hours.  She had no idea.  She died suddenly of a suspected heart attack.  She was 33 years old. I haven't seen her in a couple of years I didn't know her well, but I still cried as I looked at her wall.  This is what she wrote on her bio page - "Don't be a Liar, it wears down your soul. Love slowly, never settle, always be happy and surround yourself with good people. You can't change what has already happened but you can change what will happen. Most of all, always just smile."
She was close with a dear friend of mine.  I can't tell you how much loss my friend has had - too much for one person.  She was a widow at 32 years old.  Her mother died shortly thereafter and this year she lost two close friends (who have died young) and her beloved dog . My heart is breaking for her.  I hate that she has to go through this again and I hate that I can't be there with her as she goes through it.

Kicked the habit with an e-cigarette

    I quit smoking when I moved to the UK, mainly because I promised my husband I would.  I did it for him, but not because I wanted to.  I enjoyed smoking.  I missed it, but quit successfully for many years until I went through a stressful time and started again.  My relapse lasted over a year.  The whole time, I was ashamed of myself.  I hated the smell.  I hated how I felt, I hated the health risks and I hated my lack of willpower.      I've known a few people who have tried e-cigarettes.  I was a skeptic.  I thought it was going from one habit to another.  The people I knew that tried it, always had it and were constantly sucking on it.  It seemed to me they were more addicted to it then they were cigarettes.  I don't know any smokers that constantly had a cigarette in their hand.      Then in January, I saw a piece about it on the BBC News.  I watched with interest thinking they were going to say that they have found it to be harmful.  What they said was quite the o

Fight Club for Five Year Olds - Part 2

The other mother and I went into the school to meet with the teacher and the assistant head.  We both let them know how upset we were that we were not informed that our children were sent to the office and how much we were against the children being allowed to play fighting games on the playground.  I told them I wouldn't allow it at home and I'm really unhappy that it's being allowed at school.  They admitted it was a problem and explained that they are planning to introduce a a scheme to teach the children to play in a safe way.  They will be calling it 'Super Hero Training'.  They plan to give out capes & masks out to children who behave well as rewards at playtime.  They will have assemblies where they will teach the children to play fighting games without making contact.  I find this to be absurd.  The problem has gone on to long and I doubt they will be able to teach little children to change their games when they have sixty other children to look after on

Attitude adjustment...

It's been a while since I blogged regularly. I guess I've been going by the rule - if you don't have anything nice to say - don't say anything at all. I hate 'woe is me' type entries and for the last month or so, I've been really down and haven't had anything good to say. I think it started with the news that Aniela (my fellow expat girlfriend) was moving back to the US and was exacerbated by the incident with Wayne's cousin and the flare up of my condition (along with a general feeling of homesickness & loneliness). I was really depressed for quite a few weeks there and haven't been doing much more than going to the gym and other random things to keep me busy during the day. I haven't even worked on my web classes (in any serious way) in weeks (probably because I can't concentrate when I'm in pain - never mind get very motivated). I'm not so down anymore. Maybe it's the sunshine. Maybe it's the fact that I'
