I'll be OK. It's just that things have been a little stressful at work, and I count on my therapist to keep me seeing things in a reasonable light. So when he's gone, I know that I go off course, but I don't know exactly how I'm off course of what to do about it. So I guess I feel like I need him (more than miss him).

Tomorrow I'll go to my parent's cottage on the lake. I'm not going to read Library Administration books, and I'm not going to read Psych books (except, I'll bring "In Session", of course). I'm going to read adult fiction (usually I only read kids' books...). I'm going to bring a string art project I started many years ago. If my daughter's car stops overheating, I'll bring my sewing machine and finish the seat covers I started at Xmas for her.

So, hopefully, being away from my usual environment will make it so that I need him less.

Except my daughter just told me that her friend is planning to come with us for the whole week (I had told her she could have friends come to visit - but I was thinking a day or two). We've compromised that if her friend needs to go home, and one of my daughter's other friends isn't going to be going that way, that my daughter will drive her home (I'll pay for the gas). So I guess that she won't stay longer than I want her to, because when I want her to go I'll send her home. But this is stress I wasn't counting on. And my parents will be there through Monday morning because the plumber is coming on Monday to make the shower work (a shower is a good thing). So now I'll have daughter's friend AND my parents at the same time. Daughter's friend is a very picky eater. My mother asked what we should eat on Sunday night and when I told her that friend was picky she said "So should we just serve what we want and force her to be polite?". ARGH!

I *was* looking forward to next week.

I don't know how much internet access I'll be able to find. The library limit is 15 minutes where I'm going.
