Pieces of Me:JANUARY 12

Some days I just fall apart, and it takes a while to pull myself back together. Today I'm starting out the day feeling pretty much together. I want to quit work so badly and spend more time doing the things I want to do.But until I am financially able to do so I'm going to live as if art and homemaking were my day job and the intensive in-home family counseling I do as my "other" job. (Thank you Terri Jo Doyle! I reread again last night, the piece you sent me months ago!) I'm changing my perspective. I'm picking up pieces of me AGAIN today. :-)

Yesterday's family sessions were OK, had a dad call me Tuesday night, I met with the family last night. Another tantrum from the 12 year old boy. He was totally pissed when Dad and I wrote down house rules, and listed his privileges/consequences/rewards, not unexpected.

I started a journal page last night and finished it this morning, I rather like that...beginning/ending/beginning the day with some art time without thinking about what it looks like, just going intuitively.

The clementine./pomegranate/pistachios/shredded Asiago/Romaine salad we had with dinner last night was wonderful!! (I forgot to pick up feta when I was in town) was delicious!! The dressing is just juice from some of the clementines, a bit of lemon juice, a tsp of balsamic vinegar. Tom says that recipe is a keeper!! I'm looking forward to tonight's squash stuffed with quinoa, pomegranate seeds, a bit of red onion and maple syrup. I would prefer roasting the squash in the oven, but until we get a new one the microwave will suffice to cook the squash.
