      NOra, thanks for starting us! I love this months SELECTION.
      Happy Monday everyone! Can't believe it's October already. One of Marks friends stopped by tonight with her new puppy. It's an Australian sheep dog. He is so cute. He barks feriously at strangers so they are trying to get him used to people. Their little visit made my day! They have their hands full with him, little cutie.
      What's everyone up to today? Have a great AF night

      Hello everyone.

      Liz - how fun to have a visit from Mark's friend. The dog sounds so cute. I'm glad that you liked the selection - I liked the little suggestions and it even included one step at a time. I liked that.

We all should make our life as gentle and supportive as possible, given whatever resources we have available. To me, the world is tough, mean, and scary right now so I’m trying to give myself and others a break whenever I can. Let’s all take good care of ourselves and one another. xx
      I love this, @NoSugar. Thank you. I think that is so true.....“True self care is creating a life you don’t feel the need to escape”. I feel like I'm making progress in some ways but certainly not there yet. And I agree that the world is a very scary place right now.

      Re: One Step at a Time - October 2018

      Good Morning and Happy October,
      @NoraC...thank you for the lovely kick off to the month! LOVE IT.
      @NoSugar-thank you for posting about how self-care is creating a life where we don't feel the need to escape.
      @techie, you dear man and coach....congratulations on your friend placing well in the Malibu Tri! So glad the treatment is working well for you. You deserve to feel well!
      @bird-can you make your avatar move? Was it you or another MWO member from a long time ago who had the same avatar but it was jumping? It was so cool!!
      @Lizann...that puppy sounds sooooo cute and fluffy!

      Pauly-please tell me the pancakes at IHOP were just horrible and you're never going back. HAHAHA! Just kidding.

      Well, today, my post is almost all about me. I am feeling sad about my mom and overwhelmed with work. Like Nora and Pauly, I am finding that I do not like going to work and I am resentful about the amount of paperwork I have to complete for each client. What bothers me the most is that every time I have a free day and I am committed to finishing my paperwork so that I am all caught up (I am so behind right now), something happens that causes me not to be able to complete those tasks. Friday was a perfect example....my mom ended up having emergency surgery and I had to go to her apartment and take care of her all weekend. I got nothing done, and I when I got back home late Sunday afternoon, I found that the mice were back and they raided my silverware drawer!! OMG! What next? With my mom, the sadness is coming from knowing how surgeries have taken so much out of her and I wonder how much longer she will be with us.

      @NoSugar, to be honest...I DO feel like escaping...not with AL...but I am hoping after I get my gel nails filled and get a pedicure this morning that it might help my mood. I am also going to exercise. I think we all need outlets or diversions...exercise, reading, binge watching Netflix, etc.

      I'll be back tomorrow. I just need some space right now....I hope you guys understand. You are wonderful and thanks for being here!!!
