    I fixed my sump pump all by myself today. The hose broke, and there was about 6 inches (and rising) of water in my basement, it HAD to be fixed. So, I did it, even though at first I had no clue how to do it.. and Im really proud of myself. and the feeling of accomplishing something you thought you couldnt do is super!
    Whats something your proud of yourself for?

    Good job!

    the closest I can come up with is:  One night about 2 am I woke up to hear water flowing and got up to find about an inch of water in the hallway, coming out of the bathroom.  When I went into the bathroom I discovered the hose at the bottom of the toilet tank was disconnected and out of control - spraying water everywhere!  I coulnd't get the hose hooked back up, but I did manage to turn off the water.  Had to call a plumber in the morning.

    Hmmm? Probably not a big deal for a guy, but for me it was a great accomplishment when I lifted our 46" Flat screen up (by myself-husband was at work) and raised it up 3 feet.
    The next day I woke up and my arms hurt like hell-but I was still proud of myself for doing it without any help, and not having it tumble to the ground the moment that I let go.  big_smile

          last spring, the last night of hubbys unpaid vacation, he got drunk and was wrestling. He ended up seperating his shoulder, and missed another week of work. He was depressed, stressed, and in pain. To pass the time, I bought him Tombraider, but it ended up making him frustrated. SOOO, I sat at teh computer,hours and hours on end... readign to him step by step a walk thru. One night I had to run to the store to purchase lunchmeat, I had the beginings of a migrane, and was standing in the deli waiting for my order. I watched a fat boy about 9, pull apart all teh banans and stuff them in wierd palces throught the store. He then wlaked over to me and started screaming at me ..uhhh EXCUSE me! EEEEEXCUUUUUSEE me! His father was directly to my right. I said..Im sorry, Im getting my food, you can step around me?
          The boy was SHOCKED!!! He looked at his dad with huge eyes and says.."Dad, I said excuse me." The man goes
          "Yeah, I know little buddy, I see her beig a bitch to you."

              It was hard, but my head hurt so bad that talking made me feel like throwing up, so that helped.
              I smiled, and looked at the man, and said "Oh, Im so sorry if that was rude. But, you see, I am an adult, and Im getting my food right now. "
              He turned a million shades of red and said .."oh, oh no, not at all, he can be a pest...."

    Congrats Justine!

    I have nothing to report on my side of things. I strive everyday to learn something new, so I have less surprises in life. When you're ready for something and see it coming, you can better prepare for when it does arrive. smile

    I'm very proud of you, not to sound weird or anything. I am very glad you found the ability to remove a limitation you had in front you. It can only help you build your own spiritual love for yourself.

    Thank you for sharing. smile

    Alright, Justine....you've forced my hand.

    After Ben's death (my horse who was killed in a trail riding accident), the "friend" who used to trailer Ben and I to the rides and who subsequently left Ben and I in the mountains that night stopped talking to me about a month after the accident.  Whatever.  At any rate, the next summer I was thinking "I don't have anyone to trailer with" and I'd not done alot of transporting myself using my own trailer.  Well, when the time came I said "fk it!! I'll get my trailer going and Jack (my other horse) and I will go to all the rides ourselves....we don't need anyone."  First ride came, I trailered Jack all by myself....loaded and unloaded him. 

    As it turns out I accidentally pulled my trailer in next to this "friend" I mentioned above.  I was in such a hurry to find a spot that I wouldn't have to back out of (cuz I don't know how to back a trailer) when I left that I just pulled in there.  And she looked at me and said "oh, I'm surprised to see you here."  and I responded "Oh really? and why would that be?"  She goes "well, ya know..." and I said "no, I really don't.  please explain." 

    Anyway, Jack and I went on ride after ride after ride.  Just him and I (and I always tell him that....Its just you I, Jackie....and I know he gets it).  I even took him on a camping ride.  Just him and I and my shepherd.  I had my little two horse trailer....put an army cot in the one stall of it....woke up full of pine shavings (used to pad the floor of stalls and trailers) but we did it!!

    That's my story...

        Last year I was totally intimidated and "scared" almost to run into her.  This year, I've gained alot of friends on these rides and I look at her with pity because she knows what she did and so does everyone else.  I'm alot stronger this year with my relationship with Jack and the bond I created with him last year.

          Im hapy for you.  I know that was a very hard time for you, and to loose a freindship also, must have been difficult. Its good to be able to finaly move on.

            Stimpposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Thanks.  YA...it was totally hard.  Because I had no one to talk to that would understand....she was "there".  At any rate, I took it quite personally and now it's like "F-U and Jackie and I'll be kickin' a$$ and takin names this summer".  Can't wait.  Thanks for making me think of something positive today.
