Don't Want To Jinx It

Not too long ago I made a post entitled "No News is Good News". So yes, dear readers, the fact that posts these days are few and far between is mostly good news.

But I have an internal time goal, and if that goal is met without a noteworthy scary incident, I will give a full accounting of all these non-posted days/weeks. =D

I started EMDR again with a new therapist. My educations is progressing satisfactorily (all As so far). My daughter and I talk almost every day. My son and I definitely talk every day (haha) as he is still home schooling, about to finish his junior year.

My husband and I are doing well, hence the "no news". He is still in EMDR, and it seems to be working very well. He is happy at work. He watches Joel and Kathy on DVD a couple times a week. He works out after work at least three days a week.

Father's Day came and went with no problems. My son, husband and I had a great day together. We went to lunch and then shopping for a Father's Day gift for my husband. We did not show up at my father-in-law's house as he originally ordered. (However we scheduled for a visit next month. This could trigger trouble. I am taking a "wait and see" approach.)

So, there's a little taste of what no news means around here these days. Peace and good will to all, SS


  1. Soooo glad that Father's Day passed without drama. Is this the first time that hubby has chosen not to "follow orders" from a place of conscious self-reflection rather than reactionary rebelliousness? That's got to be gratifying for both of you.

    I've been meaning to write you about your new therapist but the thought keeps coming to me when I'm doing something like driving and by the time I can sit down to write---brain mush. But I've been thinking of you and continue to pray for both of you.

  2. Interesting post. Poses so many questions.

  3. Yes, it is the first time he said NO all on his own! LOL I was so proud and happy, and so was he. He got to tell him this way too: "no, my kids already have plans for me that day". n_n

    I was learning to take blood pressures, so I *do* know that his was high the week leading up to Father's Day, and fell twenty points immediately following Father's Day. Yay for him. =)

    He still has bad dreams. I really like what I learned about Jung and archetype and dreams in college a few years back, so the dreams fascinate me and both encourage and trouble me.

    There is a lot of dreams about striving toward something and being attacked/thwarted in reaching the goal. The striving is very encouraging. I hate that something (or a pair of somethings) keeps thwarting him. I can't wait for the dream to come where he climbs over the fence, runs for the touchdown, climbs to the mountaintop successfully. That day will be awesome when it comes.

    We are reading "The Inescapable Love of God" by Thomas Talbott. It's so helpful to both of us. You might enjoy, Sandra! The theme is "universal reconciliation". It's a whole new way of looking at Jesus/Christianity for my husband.

    I think it's right on the money, in other words, true to what the Bible actually says. So many problematic verses are being cleared up for me by this and other non-fundamentalist authors: Greg Boyd, Frances Collins, Steve McVey, etc.

    Here's a link to a great article found in (of all places) Christianity Today. The title: The Search for the Historical Adam.

  4. So glad things are going well. You and your family are in my prayers.
