I am treading water and desperately hoping for my happy to come back. I feel little flashes that make me hopeful. I just wanted to share this because it made me smile.

I love Harry Potter. Well, maybe not so much HP but all of the books. I have read the entire series more times than I can remember. Some sections are memorized almost word for word.

So, I am FB friends with a couple of girls who are around my ds14's age... HS freshmen. One of them posted the other day, "I'll be upstairs in my room, making no noise, and pretending I don't exist." A couple of people posted very concerned replies, but I remembered her posting something about Harry Potter a while back. So I took a chance and posted, "Too right, you will!! <spoken like Uncle Vernon>"

She replied "OMG Ms HFSSC, you made my day! This was perfect! :)"

Small thing but it made my day too.

Sometimes that's all it takes

From time to time, I do consider that I might be mad. Like any self-respecting lunatic, however, I am always quick to dismiss any doubts about my sanity. DK

I trust you is a better compliment than I love you, because you may not trust the person you love, but you can always love the person you trust. - Unknown

I love being friends with some of my kids friends. I think it helps them to know there is an adult other than mom and dad that gets them too.
