Just a short update on stuff around here. For those of you that were hoping for something more profound in my podcast on my other blog, stay tuned. I’m putting something a bit more significant together that better extends my own thoughts and feelings, but it might not be posted for a bit because life is busy.
Speaking of RL, we did have one of those tornadoes decide to touch down in our backyard. Maybe 60 seconds of terror and it was all over. I felt it before I heard it, as the walls started shaking. The power blinked but it was otherwise okay and by the time I tuned in to the TV, it was over for us. We had some minor roof damage, but that will be fixed today thanks to a neighbor who has some roofing experience. Our neighborhood seems to be the only one that was hit around the county, as most folks were grousing more about the hail. We got that, too, but not quite as scary as a twister. Everyone was shook up but okay. The kids slept through the whole thing, lucky for them. There were a few trees down and a carport and a porch was lost, but the houses all held up pretty well. Georgia gets as many tornadoes as anyone else, but we tend to get them spread around the year as opposed the northern folks who get them in April and May. Having lived in Ames, which is part of Tornado Alley, I’m no stranger to these things but it has been awhile since I’ve been that close to one. It’s a lot scarier at night when you can not see when it’s coming.
Last week, after Arwyn’s counseling session she was keen to talk, so we did for a bit. I don’t feel like we really got anywhere, tho. Her stance mirrors what a lot of you have said in that all this is going to take time and that the sex will just have to follow along behind trust, and closeness and other intimacy. My stance is that one of the problems is that sex follows behind everything and therefore gets left behind every time. It could help build trust, intimacy and closeness but she’s not on board with that. This week is my week with the therapist and I’ve got a head of steam built up about it that maybe we can work on. She did say that he did bring up the “sex stuff” so at least he’s not ignoring it altogether. If his specialty was in any other area, avoiding would be a major issue.
Okay, time to get to work on the video!
