hello again

I've been thinking it may be time to resurrect the blog.  2010 was a year we found ourselves saying "don't let the door hit you in the butt" too, but 2011 is full of hope and good things to come, and as I seem to have my life together enough to find myself watching TV and taking a nap mid afternoon because all my work is done, I think maybe I can come back to the occasional blogging activity.

I know everybody says "we're on an amazing journey"...its become somewhat cliche, so I'll refrain from saying "We're on an amazing journey", but I will say, I like the path we're on right now, and I feel hopeful for the future.
Some things broke down, rather, some PEOPLE (more than one!) broke down last year, we came as close as completely falling apart as is possible without actually calling it quits, but at the same time, we experienced greater achievements than we've ever experienced, and it was a WEIRD year! But this year, we've got some wonderful people and organizations in our court, helping us put things into perspective, and helping us to find a greater appreciation for life and the people, places, and things with which we find ourselves interacting.

the "Sneak Peak" version is a little something like this: Family counseling for all of us, individual counseling for three of us, PTSD, anger management, discipline contracts, EMDR, 7 Habits of Happy Families training (LOVE IT!), karate training, saying NO, adding art and creativity back into life, and teaching the New Testament to 8,9,and 10 year olds.  LIFE IS GOOD, and its ok to feel wonky inside, with or without Cave Hair.

"See" you again soon,

Wow! I am glad you're back. And it's families like yours that make me have hope. When they can admit they need some additional assistance.

I would be very interested in hearing how your EMDR therapy goes. I've heard it works wonders for trauma.
