My weekend

I'm not really feeling the writing thing today. I'm in a weird place. Mainly just tired I think. So I'll just tell y'all about my weekend:
Saturday I met for the first time with a photography group that I joined. We discussed places where we'd like to go and take pictures. It was really nice, the people were wonderful, and I think I made some new friends.
Then I took my girl to a bday party for the granddaughter of a friend that bil share. We all keep talking about how the breakup is not going to change our friendship, but sadly, I think it has. I left my girl there and took my boy to coach hockey. That evening I met with a few of my high school friends for dinner. Now THAT was a blast! I think I have it figured out though. With my new friends in the morning and my old friends in the evening, I was just Diane. With my friends that I share with my bil, I always use to be Diane and T, and now I am Diane minus T. I just want to be Diane. Period. And it's hard. I felt like hanging around them was a trigger for my depression and that's really sad to me.
Yesterday, I went to church and then took the kids to the mall to buy some school clothes. I spent the afternoon reading my Sociology chapter and finishing my algebra homework.
My kids started school today! Yay!!!! I can go home at lunch to peace and quiet and read my bible; maybe we can even get into a nice routine. Be normal!!! I'm still super busy with school and church stuff, but at least the kids should be calming down a bit.

1. old friends
2. new friends
3. back to school for the kids!
4. my amazing church
5. I have a meeting tonight


  1. Seems like being tired is a recurring theme here around blogger land. Sounds like your weekend overall went really well! Enjoy the silence from the kids being back in school. I know I am.

  2. I would imagine it would be hard to re-define friendships especially with friends that you were 'couple' friends with, so to speak. must be an awkward thing to try to find a balance with the friendship, if one can even find that balance

    otherwise, it sounds like you had a semi-okay weekend; hoping the kids enjoy their first day of school

    hope you get a bit rested up; it is hard though with your schedule plus the heat I would think you must be having too since its been hot/muggy in the Temecula Valley

    take care of yourself


  3. I haven't been in the writing mood lately myself. It's not that I don't have anything to write about, I just can't seem to get in the mood or find the words. Try to catch up on your rest. Remember that it's okay to take a break from your class load to refocus. Hugs!

  4. It's funny how we redefine who we are after a breakup. It's always been a big growth period for me. It's hard for me to believe that the kids are back in school already...where did the summer go? Enjoy the peace and quiet.

  5. For me, the desire to write, and read for that matter, comes in waves.

    I agree, where did the summer go? For me, summer is the peace and quiet -- back to teaching in a week and a half :)

    Kids are grown... mine just started college. Yes, where did the time go? :)

  6. It sounds as if some peace is coming your way with the kids in school. Enjoy your quiet time.
