Some of what I had been talking about regarding how the dynamic has shifted in relationships and the myth of the man shortage is still on my mind. But, the past two weeks have been very busy for me and I crashed out this week. I have mentioned that while there are people who suffer from the family of injury that I do, what I don't talk about is the greater number of people for whom living with CTBI is about all they can do. Me, I am somewhere between the extremes of super-high functioning and that of being dependent on others in order to live as stable a life as I can manage and still consider myself to be 'independent'.
What does all this mean? I like to think that while it is as stretch for me to believe that 'I can grow up to be president', I still think I can be 'speaker of the house'! My attitude is one where I know there is a ceiling for me, but it is my obligation to push up against it and fill the space between it and the floor with as much as I can.
My Easter weekend has been way cool. Not only have I had internet friends looking in on me but I have recieved phone calls from Nixxie & KT (and as usual, they had jokes!) and the SFC, too. And everyone's (meaning: MY!) favorite Cornhusker, Nebraska, has spent time with me this weekend as well. We have been getting along a lot better and I can see things normalizing between us before long.
This week is going to be a busy one as well but I do expect to be visiting blogs and doing a little 'catching up' as well. Right now I am watching an episode of 'Drag U' on Logo featuring, Charlene Tilton (Lucy from the TV show 'Dallas'), Dawn Wells (Mary Ann from 'Gilligan's Island'), and Erin Murphy (better known as 'Tabitha' on 'Bewitched). I hope to find the energy later to get back out here but right now, I am engrossed in the what the 'Dragulator' has come up with for the ladies!
