I have been in a real mood for the last...oh decade or so...lol. No really, my therapist says she has been really worried about me for almost the past 8 to 10 months now. Thats how long my moods have been really bad and my stress level has been off the charts. I have really been engaging in some bad difficult child behaviors. I wont go into them but suffice it to say Im not handling stress well at all. This weekend husband and I took a simple overnight get away drive down the southern NC coast and stayed overnight in a lovely place called Sunset Beach NC. He fished for awhile and I stayed in the motel and read a book and watched tv. Later he came back to the room and we had a late pick nick dinner in the room while watching tv together. We had started our drive first going to Carolina Beach and then going down to Fort Fisher to take the ferry but that was backed up so we drove around down through Wilmington to Sunset and Ocean Isle. After we got up this morning we decided to do the "reminiscing" tour since we met in North Myrtle Beach and lived there for 8 years and we were only about 10 miles there. We drove down and saw my moms old house, the apartment that we first lived in and where Jamie was conceived and came home to, the place that our first trailer was (the lot is still there but the trailer is gone), and a bunch of other landmarks from our beginning. Its hard to believe its been so long. While we were at the place that our first trailer was at a man spotted us parked to take a picture and he stopped us to talk and asked us who we were...we told him we had lived there 20 years ago...and it suddenly dawned on me...OMG...it was 20!!!! years ago!!! I cant believe it was so long ago. But what was so amazing was that this whole time I was out there just me and husband riding around, eating, not dealing with anyone else...guess what? I was calm! I wasnt stressed...I was calm. No kids, no jails, no cops, no one expecting anything from me. Im allergic to people. I like to watch them but I dont want to interact with them...lol.
