    @pridesabtch - work upheaval is so stressful.
    Hope you learn more soon and it isn’t dragged out.

    @Bex953172 - so many people have anxiety. My daughter named hers Fred. When she’s having a hard day or moment her husband will ask her if Fred is being an a** again and it’s helped her immensely. She gets angry and tells Fred where to go and what to do.

    Today I have to travel to my business. I don't really want to go, as we have high winds again, but I don't have an option to put it off.
    So goals for today are to drive carefully, and not overeat.

    Mission accomplished yesterday. No new damage, some had been fixed and some hadn't. I drove very carefully! Really strong winds, and torrential rain on the way home. I dislike when the roads are swimming in water, I've aquaplaned and crashed a car before so it makes me anxious now. Something hit the roof of my car, can only think it was a small bit of tree, the noise really made me jump. Still glad I went, today we've had a little covering of snow, but it's frozen and cars are crashing so it would be more dangerous today. I didn't log but did quite well...until I sunk to a new "low" and took a handful of crisps to bed with me. That is a bad habit I shouldn't encourage!

    @TerriRichardson112 I really like your poem. It really describes Scotland today, as well as Ireland!

    I see you are doing Latin study, how are you finding that? I think Latin was my favourite subject at school, possibly because the teacher was a character who often told stories of his trips to Greece instead. Lovely man :)

    I've just nipped on here while having a coffee, to stop me eating!

    Not really surprising 😝 We’re just across the sea from you.

    I didn’t do Latin in school, but always felt I would like to have a better grasp, since it helps with understand language roots.

    Our group leader, Rose, is a wonderful teacher. We are currently using the Oxford language Course Books. We do grammar, translation, and discussion for about 45 minutes, then learn about myths/legends for about 45 minutes.

    And Rose brings us delicious cakes for our mid session coffee break. (I always keep calories for her goodies)

    I’m just watching the tragic coverage of Ukraine before having my lunch.

    That's amazing! I've heard of doing that too on a mental health thread. And even did it myself. Funnily enough when I read it on the internet, they called theirs Fred too!
    So when I was getting down I said to myself "F off Fred!"
    It helps separate the condition from the real you I find!

    I'm glad it helps her too!

    You live in the UK right? Are you more up north from Manchester? I can't remember where you live.
    Here it's been windy, not too much damage from what I've read in the news.
    The river Mersey burst its banks though in Storm Eunice.
    Today its been so cold and hailing on and off. And bouts of heavy rain.

    Trees always worry me when it's windy.
    You never know which ones going to fall.
    Years ago a tree fell into a road near our school. It was massive..huge.
    And it turned out it was my friends tree. I was at her house all the time and we always played next to that tree in her back garden.
    I can't remember what damage it caused. It was 15 years ago now!

    But yeah, don't like trees when it's windy!

    Stressful start today. Woke up to the news about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, leading to concerns for family and friends working on military bases in Germany, as well as for visiting Ukrainian students and their families. Spent most of my morning prep time watching the BBC coverage while my tea got cold. Then, in a rush, I dropped a heavy jar on my toe - ouch! - not broken but quite sore. Arrived at class late and frazzled because I couldn't find my car keys.

    But I'm done with classes for the week, so I'll be try to get a few things done at home and work in some exercise. Today's temperatures are almost 40 degrees cooler than yesterday's unseasonably balmy 70. Another winter storm is moving in, although we'll probably get mostly rain. The local weatherman calls it "weather whiplash." I'll be fighting the urge to huddle under a blanket and get sucked into my screens.

    @littleblackskirt - that must be such a relief for no new damage.

    @rafaelaxxxx - welcome! This group has been so helpful for me. I just need to kick myself and stop allowing myself to not complete my goals.

    @clicketykeys- Congratulations on becoming a Mom!
