I know pretty much everyone my age in my small town. There was a gap in time where there just weren't very many kids around. Halloween in my neck of the woods was so dead then that sometimes I swore I saw the ghost of a tumbleweed or two cutting through our lawn asking for candy.
Obviously I couldn't blame gadget pr0n for the fact that you hardly ever saw kids in my neighborhood running around outside like my classmates and I used to on , but I think it's safe to say that now I can.
As a parent, I truly believe that WiFi is the enemy, and should be treated as such. There needs to be a cyber Neighborhood Watch program in every town. Facebook groups would be a good place to hold meetings and add updates. "My kid is being punished for letting his grades slip because he spent too much time faffing about online then doing his homework, pass it on!" Sneaking off to use the computer of a kid who's not being punished would pretty much stop, or at least slow it way down. To beat the enemy you must know the enemy, etc.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

No way the real Mary was this beautiful but like I said, it's a soap opera, not a documentary.

The angle of writing shows great empathy and sympathy for others. In readability study, we can conclude that is an attitude of mistrust and caution at first contact compared to others. After studying the forms, you are a self-taught and very observant person. The write speed of the signature portrays an agile person with skill. The location of the signature in the paper may indicate the person as kind, loyal and spontaneous. The pressure on the screen, says it has a subtle and adaptable temperament. Other signature features reveal a search for authenticity, originality, and abstract mind full of ideas and thoughts. Depending on the size of the signature, may tends the person gets his family space.

But cutting those things out of my life are slowly starting to pay off. While I still get migraines, my acid reflux is for the most part gone, and that has been making me happier. My sister actually had to have acid reflux surgery because she loves her diet colas. I'd rather not have mine get that bad.
The older I get, the more I appreciate slow but steady progress when it comes to my personal goals. Constantly reminding myself that I need to simmer down because I still have a lot of post traumatic stress to deal with is helping out the most. Rome wasn't built in a day, and I don't have to wake up one morning and decide that everything is magically fine and live my life happily ever after in my little box on the hillside made of ticky-tacky.

My time has been spent reading and working on Lexi's various therapies. She'll have a couple of days to make up for at the end of the year due to snow days.
Most of it has melted off of the roads and sidewalks as of now, which is good because then I have the opportunity to teach Lexi the consequences of trying to gallop across ice in snow shoes while she and Mommy walk to the school bus or the store. You have to make them learn from experience not to run and gallop across ice like a member of the Lullaby League `hopped up on Go-Go Juice.
