#SoCS – Oh, really?


Oh yes. I’m really sorry about the mess I made of the SoCS badge contest by not realizing the comments were turned off. I haven’t had a chance to look at any of the entries, but there are sure to be some amazing ones there. Because of the screw up, I might end up accepting more than ten … I’ll see tomorrow. I hope.

Because if tomorrow is anything like today, I’ll have my hands completely full with Alex. What a horror story that was. He’ll be nineteen years old on Wednesday, and at this point, I’m starting to doubt the behavior issues will ever stop.

The good news is the swelling in my neck seems to have subsided a bit.

Oh. You know what else? I’m getting really sick of complaining all the time. So, you want some good news?

I managed to get out tonight to see the Downton Abbey movie and it was amazing. I think the thing I really enjoyed the most was just revisiting the characters. It could have gone on for four hours and I wouldn’t have complained a bit.

And now it’s quarter to two in the morning and I think it’s time for bed. I really have to put an end to these late nights. Half the time, I look at the clock and realize how much the time has gotten past me.

As Homer Simpson would say …

  1. I’m glad to hear the swelling has gone down. I hope you managed to get some sleep and got out to see a movie. I love Downton Abbey.


  2. Good for you for going out to the movies. You need that. I hope the swelling goes away and there are good days with Alex.


  3. Glad you’re feeling a little better, at least neck-swelling-wise! Every little bit helps …


  4. I really want to see Downton Abbey! I may have to go by myself. Hoping you are feeling better soon!


  5. I’m glad and grateful your swelling has gone down–it sounds like your life is challenging. Prayers continue. Thanks for the tip about the Downton Abbey movie–I didn’t watch the series, but the ads look really good! Blessings to you ❤


  6. Thanks for all you give to the community! I appreciate you. 💖


  7. I do not know how you function on so little sleep, Linda. My son, Greg, is 16 and a half and his OCD and PTSD is worse! I too think it will never end.


  8. go to bed! 😛 sounds like you had an enjoyable evening, despite the horror show with alex, lots of love to you Linda! xoxo


  9. Hi Linda, I am so glad that you are feeling a little better. Don’t worry about the new badge post mix up we will get there! In fact we did get there. As for Alex I just hope that you can cope and that you get some help. I would love to see Downtown Abby, I keep missing it 💜💜💜💜
