Today I cried at the drop of a hat.
I really did.
I don't know if I'm getting sick physically or even mentally, but the mood swings are not being nice to me.
I don't mean to complain but I don't want to portray only the Molly perfect, manicy, tons of stuff is going on and everything's happy side all the time.
Tomorrow I see the new therapist. I don't expect to dump on her all of my issues, one of which is anger that I don't know how to deal with. It's hard to find peace.

I haven't been in blogland for a bit.
I started walking with the Weight Watcher's Momentum Challenge. The goal (for some people) is to walk or even run a 5k race - I just want to go from couch potato to...being more fit.
But we meet each Monday evening to walk and have 'homework' - this week it is to walk 15 minutes a day for 5 days.
I have also been involved with my Ebay project. We sold a book! Yaaay! And I just downloaded Turbo Lister and have been trying to figure that out all morning.
Then there's the baking thing which I go to today, shortly. We have a new person which threw a wrench in it for me, as he talks NON stop but I am hoping that he will calm down, maybe he is just nervous. Hope so, because I promised I wouldn't quit over anything, not even annoying, stupid co-workers.
The A.C. is out and wouldn't you know it, it got hot around here. But a fan to cool me off, and I am feeling okay.
Blossom, (that is new puppy's name!) has started puppy school at the local pet place, and she will be getting spayed in early May. She is still learning to potty train, but doing so well for a four-month-old!! (Almost 5 months). She loves being around her mommy!
I have an appointment with a new therapist on Thursday. She sounds nice on the phone. We'll see how it goes, but I feel pretty positive about it.
New label: exercise! I haven't had that one on my blogs before because I haven't been trying consistently. Wow! New stuff.

Our Ebay user ID is trilliumcenter.
Thank you Denise for mentioning prayer to Heavenly Father about this. I prayed before starting, I pray sometimes for the little things like what I should price things and I am praying hard that this is a success and we will sell. I pray all the time. :):):)
I feel like He led me to this and I feel like it is a worthwhile adventure. While sometimes I feel personally ostrasized from the Center because I am not good around people nor do I feel particularly welcomed by them (but this is a different story), I absolutely adore our Executive Director and would do nearly anything for her and this Center is her life, her baby. She believes in it so much, and there's no place like it in our area. It really is special and one of a kind to my knowledge.
So in answer to your comment, here is our Ebay user ID and I really hope to create some buzz for it. There are books on there for .25 + 3.00-3.99 s&h just to get things going. I know that with time and the Lord's blessing things will get going!
Because it's that time of the month, I have spent two near consecutive nights not sleeping. Here it is 5:12 a.m. annnnn no sleep still.
I have been listing books on Ebay for the Trillium Drop-In Center for weeks now, just to get and keep up 25 books. I think its hard because the economy has taken a downturn and these are used books. But I am not giving up, no Sir, they will sell. Also, on Ebay feedback is very important and we are new, with no sales or feedback yet, and that may frighten people away.
So after weeks of keeping it under wraps, I have decided to come out on the blog and make it possible for you, Dear Reader, to go to our site and check out what we've got.
100% of the sale of these books is a donation to the Trillium Drop-In Center located in Woodbridge, Virginia (helping the mentally ill of Prince William County).
Trillium's mission is to provide a stress-free, stigma-free atmosphere for people 18 and over who are mental health consumers.
It's a place to socialize, reduce isolation, and participate in a variety of activities and relax be around people. Feelings of isolation are a serious problem for many mentally ill consumers (yes that's the term used) as many of us know and this place was established by mental health consumers for mental health consumers.
Trillium Drop-In Center is a non-profit and so we sell through MissionFish, Ebay's administrator to non-profits.
To see what we are selling go to www.missionfish.org go halfway down the home page (you do not have to sign in), type 'trillium drop' and view to see what we have on sale.
I said I'd never sell stuff on the blog, never put an ad up. This is something I am presently doing on a volunteer basis and I love it, maybe to get paid one day (and yes, it would help when we get sales!:) and it is the thing that is taking ALL my time and keeping me away from you, Dear reader and blog writers, as I am presently all-consumed with it.
There are some good deals on there, you should check it out. Also, I expect to get a new batch of books next week to put up.

Ah! Still here! I have a meme to do, but I just wanted to briefly check in and say that things improved with the finding a psych thing.
The 'awful people' fully rejected me and did call back and said 'they are not taking my case at this time' and to call back if I wanted to know why. Didn't want to know why - was relieved frankly. Made an appointment with a doctor across the street who had the nicest sounding receptionist and that's all it took - I was hooked.
Went to my appointment and I actually liked the guy. He's fast, only takes care of the meds and gave me a card for someone that could do therapy. That person turned out to take my insurance and I'm waiting to see if she can take new patients.
So it turned out okay. :)
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I did. I cooked lamb for the first time, made potato salad for the first time, completely homemade, and baked a wonderful moist cake in honor of the Risen Jesus and all turned out scrumptious.
Had a friend over and he enjoyed his stay thoroughly with us. Watched a couple of 'Harry Potter' movies - they are so well done. Husband gave me a beautiful card and a chocolate bunny, I did the same for him. Even got a nap in. Was a wonderful day.
I have been busy since last Monday listing books and taking care of any glitches in the first ever selling of books for the Drop-in center. We are going through MissionFish, as all of the selling of our books (100%) is a donation to the Center. I'm now doing this as a volunteer project, I may in fact get paid for it someday. It's entirely addictive for me, as now you can see not only the 'watchers' for the people who put a book to watch in their 'My Ebay' but I can see how many views each book is getting. It's like fishing, honestly. Checking how many bites you may be getting. It will be super exciting when stuff sells.:)
I hope you are all well and I will be checking in with you soon. Thanks for checking back with me.:)
