I spent my day nit picking. A friend and her kids had lice, and even after treatment, she still found one on her kid, so she called for help. Five heads in the house - I declined to check her husband's small beard.... :-) She can do that! The little baby is only a month old, so it was a bit overwhelming to try to nit pick so many wiggly heads! Armed with a new video from my collection, some treats, and a good comb, I went over. I think they are clean now. I hope so... nit picking is exhausting!
Meeting is canceled for Wednesday, and might be on for Thursday.... maybe..... It's only been three years that I have been asking for a chance to talk to our team leader about this, but... he's just always busy.... Yeah, I get used to it after awhile. Whether he talks or not, there will be action taken. I have back up. My home church pastor found out what is going on and phoned me.
Ok. I'll admit it - I should have listened to him about four years ago, but honestly, it was frightening. I was in a new place, all alone, and without support. The thought of confronting my husband then terrified me. Now I am more settled, with friends and support systems around me.
I'm too tired after nitpicking tonight to write about that conversation, but I'll try to get a note in soon. There was something our home pastor said that made me smile, and I haven't quit smiling yet. It was a huge weight taken off my shoulders. Good news. So, I'll try to write tomorrow, but I'm wiped out tonight and am dreaming of a hot shower.... especially after the thought of nits....
Feeling better... tired... but only from nitpicking, and from being set aside one more time... but less tired emotionally.
