Bad to Great

Wow today has been SO strange!

It started out with breakfast, as usual. My sister Renee was driving me crazy (she does online school - 11th grade) and blabbing on and on about her drama and such. As soon as she left the room, my mom came in and she wasn't too happy with me.

I can't remember most of what she said because I was trying my best to block her out, but basically she was mad at me for not telling her when I got home last night from my classes and that she doesn't "understand" me etc. I've been upset with my mom all day.

And then me, being totally out of my mind I guess, decided to try to have the conversation with her again about boundaries. Well... she did NOT take it well. I ended up leaving the room after ten minutes of hearing how badly she wishes I was "normal" and that she wouldn't have to deal with all of this. Whatever, I don't need to be a part of that.

So I spent the rest of the day in my room studying for the final I have tomorrow - which I am not looking forward to but I am looking forward to getting done with one of my online classes.

Then tonight, I went to a singles activity with my sisters (Brooke and Bri). We usually go to them on Tuesday nights, I just haven't been in a few weeks because I haven't been feeling well enough. Wait, back track real fast! I actually had a GOOD day today pain-wise!! The new medication seems to be working already which is AMAZING! Unless it's just a freak-thing. But still, one good day is good enough for me!

Okay, back to the singles activity. So we went and I saw a bunch of my friends there which was really fun. Towards the end, Bri mentioned that she had a paper to write and since we all carpooled together we had to leave with her. On our way out the door, this guy came up to me and asked if I would like to go on a date with him.

I said yes! And I am STILL in shock! Haha. I haven't been asked out on a date for almost a year and a half and then BAM.

I kinda know the guy. He is super nice, taller than me, really sweet. I'm friends with his step brother and step sister. He has a great personality and he is kinda cute too. So I'm pretty excited :) And it totally made my day! He said Friday night and that he would call me sometime this week, so I will keep you all posted!

Ahhh I am like SO happy right now!!



  1. Mornin'! I feel that one of the most difficult things to do is setting up those boundaries. I also have to keep reiterating where they start and end to certain people and it's frustrating. They probably think that by constantly pushing I will eventually give up, I don't know.

    Blooming Lotus has some posts you might be interested in reading, and she has a good category search to find just what you need without reading through everything.

    That's great that you had a good day! It's important to recognize those good times as well as the more, well, sucky ones.

    Take care.


  2. Your mom thinks it's hard to deal with your stuff?! How does she think YOU feel?! On the upside, how very cool about getting asked out! You'll definitely have to let us know about it!

  3. Lisa,
    "They probably think that by constantly pushing I will eventually give up.." SO TRUE! I never thought about it that way until I just read that. It totally explains my mom and it frustrates me to no end. It's like, if she keeps asking me if I'm "normal" yet then maybe I will finally answer "yes".

    I know...I wonder if she even thinks about how I feel. And thanks! It was definitely very awesome. And I will definitely write about it!
