> One thing that stands out to me in all your entries is how many different responsibilities you have and how many talents you have and how much you do for other people. I got the image of Mary Poppins, actually!! LOL. I think it was the sewing bit before bed that really impressed me. But not just. Because it was also that you returned calls after putting away the groceries, etc. It struck me as so incredibly, well, normal!! In comparison to myself, that is. I am terrible with phone calls. And if I were in a mood like you described, I know I wouldn't have had the strength to meet that obligation.
> You amaze me.
My diary is skewed. One thing I'm doing by keeping it is to remind myself of what I *do* manage to do, and the *good* things that happen in my life. If I kept a list of what I *don't * do the picture would be different. E.g. it took about a month for me to call a psychiatrist to get my son's ADHD treated. I did that just today. I still have a pile of paperwork from my father's estate, and he died nearly a year ago. Stuff like that.
It's nice that you think I have lots of talents.
