Ahhhhhhhh the weekend. And what are YOUR plans? I was supposed to go camping with my daughter, a girlfriend and her son, but it's supposed to rain here all weekend. So, we are setting up the tent in my living room, renting movies and hanging at my condo all weekend instead. I live at the beach, so we will head there, fish, swim, sun bathe... and if it rains, we've only got to run to the condo instead of driving home!

Gotta tell ya'll about the "suspended" bf... if you have been reading my strands, especially On and On and On, then you know that I basically told him I expected to be treated a certain way and if he couldn't do that, to not let the door hit him on the ass on the way out. Well, we've been hanging out this week, and I've had a fun time... but the other night he was telling me how he didn't feel like he'd accomplished much with his life, how he didn't feel satisfied with his life, how he didn't know what he wanted... blah, blah, blah....So, I asked him what time it was... he asked WHY? And I told him that if he was going to use me as his psychiatrist, that I was going to charge him by the hour! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I let this wishy washy man put me through 3 YEARS of emotional roller coaster rides, and hanging out with him and listening to him start whining again was just too much! I tol him that if he thought he had issues he needed help with, that he needed to contact a professional! I TOTALLY stepped outside my codependent, caretaking, fix the world nature and didn't take responsibility for his feelings... I placed them right back where they belonged, in his lap. That felt SO good.

ANYWHO.... what are your plans this weekend? NONE of you better be at home sulking or moping around! Life is too darn short.

You are so funny girl, and good for you.

The whole family will be loading up tonite for Heber Springs to an annual event we go to for Juvenile Diabeties. We will be riding the horses all weekend in competition to raise money for our team to donate. My kids are so excited, they look forward to this every year. My son and daughter are both diabetic as well as myself. My little cowboy 9 year old son rides just like a professional cowpoke and my 18 year old daughter rides Equestrian. I am so proud of both of them. Thats our weekend up to Tuesday. Hope everyone has a good one. Glad glad glad its friday.

Over here we'll have "Pflasterspektakel", a big fete in the city whith lots of artists (dancers, pantomimes, jugglers, singers, street theatre, fire-eaters...).

And tomorrow morning I'll go hunting for a new pair of training shoes. Yesterday I lost one sole - halfway through the aerobic-class at the gym.

Oh, and I'll have to get rid of the thorns that I cut away from the hedge. I'll propably look like I fought whith the cat, when I'm done.

LOL! Good for you Cristine! Your post just started my day out right!

I have a ho-hum weekend planned. Going to be sheetrocking and tape and bed a bedroom. Ex asked me if I want to go eat all you can eat catfish with his brother and him on Sunday. I just looked at him like...Do what? Do I look like I'm a fried food eater? Jeez! If ya want to treat me to lunch, splurge! Nothing less than Joes Crab Shack or Pappadeaux's or a good steak. I would take a Big Mac over a slab of fried fish anyday but if you two do go I guess bring me back a hush puppy...I might can find a smither of catsup to dip it in (hee) You would think after knowing me 15 years he would "know me"?

Happy for you!And wished more than anything I had a place on the beach.
Have fun!!!

Sunny 🙂

Geesh, you all sound like so much fun, and have so much fun... I want to date ALL of you! hahahahahaha 2 girlfriends and I were talking at lunch about how we ALL feel like, even though we are running around like chickens with our heads cut off, we aren't accomplishing our full potential or everything we could be with our lives. I feel like if I don't paint or wallpaper my bathroom that I haven't done anything... never mind that I rearranged my living room furniture, spent time with my daughter, crocheted an afghan for a friend's baby, and cooked dinner. The only thing I see is that my bathroom didn't get wallpapered. Why do we spend so much time chasing rainbows that we don't see the pot of gold at our feet that's already there?

Oh I do the same thing. I put things on the back burner and sometime they just don't get done. My day starts at 4am every morning and usually ends in bed at 11 or 12 midnite. Sometimes we just got'a play.

Hi! Im Julie and Im 21... I just started seeing a therapist and she made me realize that I am codependent. I searched online and saw this, and its nice to see there are people who overcome this. I just started writing in a journal and I try to do my affirmations when I remember... any more advice? Also for the weekend, I have decided to do something I want to do instead of waiting to see what "the guy" wants to do... Im going to the zoo with my mother. I cant wait.

OT: please, ladies help me. I can't find "afghan" in my dictionary. I guess that a baby wouldn't be covered in one of those sleek, elegant long-haiered dogs???? Or one of the natives of Afghanistan?

What is an afghan :)??

A blanket made out of yarn... knitted or crocheted. I crochet them... the thought of having two sharp, pointed objects in my hand longer than the average house knife makes me weak in the knees! :o) I crochet, which uses only one "hook" for manipulating the yarn.

You guys are so funny. I love this site! I feel like I know you all so well. Maybe it's because we all have a specialty in common. LOL

Any way, this weekend I have to spend time getting ahead in my school work. I take online classes to get my degree in marketing. I plan on coloring my hair, organizing my apartment AGAIN and I will find time to do something fun!!!

On Sunday morning My older son and I are taking my daughter to Bear creek Camp. It's a Christian camp that my boys went to when they were little. She's so excited. There is a PA state park up there called The Tubs where there are swimming holes and great nature trails. We are going up early if it's nice to play!!

Stay on this site and just say 'no I will not!!!'

No seriously juliestarr, look into a meeting around you. I am looking for one myself. I go to counseling too.

I am beginning to realize I will probably always be codependent and I am just trying to put it all together. On this site, you'll be surprized how many similarities thee are in codeps. I mean more than our desire to make everyones life great even if they don't want it!!!!

I noticed quite a bit of weight yoyoing on these threads. I have been up and down 20-25 pounds my whole life. Plus how we all keep looking for another relationship when we haven't even gotten over the others. Baggage always stays with you this way.

We know the answers for everyone else but we never follow our own advice. Can anyone add more?
