The Watched Pot

Most things work out in their own time, so constantly checking just seems to prolong them.  Back in my enabling days, I was constantly monitoring his progress which really never seemed to progress.  I think that I've now switched my focus. 

Now I focus on.... this girl...due to foal in exactly 14 days!!!!  Hubby will start to obsess very soon.  Mares do things in their own time.  After 35 years of having mostly mares looks like he'd learn....but always seems surprised when they do it their way. 

There are other things that I obsess about like....springtime.  I hate hate hate winter.  I feel as though 9 years in the snow belt of NE Ohio made me fill my quota on winter weather.  This was yesterday with the daffodils coming up.  Today is 32 with a windchill of 17.  Brrr

I also spend a lot of time trying to imagine when I'll be moving.....It's hard to live in limbo and keeping the house constantly clean has never been my strong suit. 

So, since I've been focusing on all these things, I just happened to notice that my son loves hanging out with his parents again, he cleaned my house for me after work yesterday, just to help me out.  He has goals and friends that he actually brings home. 

Today, I say a prayer of thanksgiving for these new gifts.  I say a prayer to ask for patience on the other pots I watch.  I pray for those who can't stop watching the pot of their addicted loved one and I say a prayer for Henry.
