If you do end up having to eat frozen burritos and such just adding some fresh lettuce or something can make a big difference.
Great that you found bottleneck and slashed it off!So I realized this was taking me so long to wander around finding something that fits perfectly in each box that it's not worth the time. Instead I found a bunch of those air filled plastic bags and I am stuffing them in the gaps of the mostly filled boxes and packing them up and moving on. This should keep me from going nuts now that I can pack at a normal rate again.
People who "are bad at" basic domestic stuff either lack practice (which may not be their fault) or see it as too far below them to engage their brains for.I am always shocked at how bad he is at domestic things. But he is very talented in many other ways, so, oh well!
Great solution!I found a bunch of those air filled plastic bags and I am stuffing them in the gaps of the mostly filled boxes and packing them up and moving on.
I need to teach him how to shop one of these days. I am always shocked at how bad he is at domestic things
Yes I often think of how bad I am at with certain things--i've been especially contemplating my lack of ability with basic building skills lately. I would like to build a simple closet, but just feel completely lost! Lack of training, lack of practice!People who "are bad at" basic domestic stuff either lack practice
That sounds so good! You are doing incredibly well, M xoI am feeling organized and productive now, and when you walk in the rooms, they seem a lot more open and clean, which makes me happy.
I especially loved the North of Vietnam. We went to lots of villages outside Hanoi, but I also loved Hanoi. Sapa was wonderful. I have hundreds of photos printed & in albums. I must get them out & have another look. We did not hear raised voices anywhere in Vietnam & there were little shrines everywhere & lots of lovely temples.Wow, I'd love to visit Vietnam some day! What parts did you like especially?
Looking forward to hearing what you learn!I looked up "CBT and overeating" and also "emotional eating" today and found great stuff to research. I can't wait until after the move to really get into this stuff.
I'm sure the solution will be specific to every single one of us but I do believe the underlying framework will be similar.I figure if we all put our heads together on this forum we can find a bunch of solutions that should work for us long term!
That's too bad you couldn't learn from him. My dad was a carpenter, so he was forever building and we always had a workshop. I did try to learn stuff from him, but just couldn't get the knack of it. Course growing up with someone like that I could always have him do all my projects for me--not anymore though!My grandfather was so good with tools, he built his own house, and I always wanted to learn from him, but he had no patience.
Sorry to chime in once again, but this is one of my autistic SPINs (SPecial INterests); this is spot on. Buddhism, if compared to f.e. Christianity, has similarities and differences; in large parts of Asia it's politically and historically speaking very similar to Christianity in the West, with a long history of highly organized monastery and temple systems, a monopoly on higher education in centuries when the majority of population was illiterate, and political ties to powerful families who tended to send children who weren't fit to be successors to monasteries to create a spiritual career for themselves.Buddhism sure does seem to have a wide appeal these days. i think a big part is that you don't have to necessarily take on all the beliefs/practices to get some benefit. That's good that your teacher teaches in clear and simple ways--I like those sort of teachers as well.
Don't worry about responding to my diary at all, I understand how taxing it is to have to deal with IRL issues and it makes sense to only have time and energy for so much online stuff. I'm mostly MIA from all of my online friend's diaries however much I would like to contribute and keep up with their stuff.Anyway, please feel free to write about Buddhism or any other topics as long as you like in my diary. I really like reading what you write. Sorry not to get to your diary lately. I am just so worried about the move, I am being careful to only spend a little time here on the forum until we are out of here.
A friend of mine works in a psychiatric hospital and they sell patients' artwork to help fund more materials.(BTW, imagine if psych wards archived all the art done by patients; there are true artists out there.)
Which, as I'm sure you know, is a symbol of masculinity as well.And then this holy hag came along and basically assigned a sacred tree for me.
Even if that wasn't a special moment in and of itself you're making it one by growing into your full self. Which is how prophecies work.to which she gave me the deadest of stares, like she was bored out of her wits, and said - "you just need the growth".
