I am seeing that I really need a retreat of a spiritual type. I am grumpy and my compassionate heart is worn thin. After reading that the woman who killed her children had teenagers I realized how stressed us parents of teens really are (not that my kids are in danger). I see one I would like in April but really don't know about affording it, but also don't know how I cannot do something like this. Meanwhile I am going to try to attend as many meditations as i can with a group to keep myself going. I could make up a 'so it yourself' retreat however I would like to have the group as well.
I have to say that my house and lifestyle are really different, a few hours in a 'normal' household with the Super Bowl on and I had my circuits kinda blown.
