    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    CL, I'm so glad to see you back on here. I don't know how you do it and am so sorry that this pandemic has made things even harder. How is the yoga helping? I hope a LOT.

    Hi nswef, thanks.

    the yoga is helping some.

    the imposition of strict scheduling, routines, and boundaries, of which yoga is a part, is helping.

    Today I made it through a whole day including a hybrid online class without needing to call tech support.

    i am tired a lot and short on reserves.
    I’ve shortened this several times due to the boundaries/reserves issues, but I do appreciate your kind words.

    This virus is so hard on kids and I feel sorry for them and the teachers.

    Me, too! To be honest, I'm soooo glad to not be parenting younger children now with the decisions to be made re: schooling, etc.

    My daughter holds down a full-time job, takes her 10-year-old to work with her (she's lucky she can do this) and has a little schoolwork area for her in her office. She runs her to gymnastics 3 times a week. She also has an 18-yr-old on the autism spectrum who is in an online transition program at home (by himself all day) that she has to worry about and monitor his stuff remotely and by phone. I help her out with him. Her husband telecommutes in a city about 2 hr away M-Th.

    I've watched her age in the last 7 months.

    Kay, your daughter has a lot on her plate. That sounds awful.

    Reading. This "indoor phase" has allowed me to read more than I ever imagined. I also started finding easy and quick recipes to make so I have more control over what I swallow and digest, rather than letting more convenient and corrosive food take over. I'm shocked at how many ways one can cook garbanzo beans. I've also sought out new forums to post on, such as this one.
