Katie I need to continue my decluttering too. I also need to organize so much. There are only about three or four areas of my home that I am satisfied with so I seriously need to work on those other areas.

Cocoa it sounds like you are doing some major shopping. I am limiting my purchases until I get things more settled. I have decided to give my husband some wedding pictures for Valentine's Day. I will either take him out to eat or cook something special for him too.

Laura I hope you are feeling better.

Jfred that young wife is lucky to have you. I knew the military life was not for me. I could not stand being away from my husband.

Happy New Year Monkeystyle

I also will increase fruit n veggies.
Family goals we have list of places to go try and see.
Hh goals to finish projects or start an finish them.get more organized and declutter.
Relationship goals..me and dh need more us time. Work on monthly date times as time allows
Homeschool goals are to continue learning thru play and daily living. Give girls more chore type responsibilities with assistance. Work on numbers 10-20. And teach them how to make phone calls and safety stuff.
Survival homesteading stuff..work on stockpile...prepping and drills for emergency situations.
Financial goals continue to save $50 a month..alternate xtra money to principal or escrow monthly.pay back 124$ to. Escrow from 2016 and 297$ to principal from 2016 escrow overage. And shoot to pay off my car payment

Looks like you have quite a few goals set for 2017. That list didn't just pop into your head; you worked on that for a while. Have you also been working on a plan to implement and achieve them? Good luck!

And sis that lives close....she was like, welcome to my world....and thank you for your sanity! She.s about to lose her mind up there. The GOOD THING, while I am there with everyone else, we ALL won't fit in ONE vehicle, so I can drive on my own, and get away from being captive to their crazy! I'd say I would send my kids w the grandparents....but neither drive well, dad's tbi makes it very very stressful for him to drive....and kids just add too much extra.....AND he has recently driven terribly aggressive, nearly causing an accident....and I don't trust him driving my kids. The kids will not be happy about this. I WAS planning on them sleeping over a couple of nights, but not after recent actions. I won't allow that....and their daddy said NO, too. My dad is NOT going to be happy, but when you act like a d*mn fool, then you lose the privileges of free access to my children. I will protect my children, and I will set boundaries. And should he throw a fit, I will turn around and take my children home. I will NOT allow him to verbally abuse me, nor will I allow my children to witness such things. (He tried to start crap w me last spring....and I wouldn't put myself in his path for him to go on a rampage w me. We ALL avoided him till he calmed down. I felt bad for mom, cause she prolly had to listen to him. I'm not 8, or 16, and no longer have to listen till he finally shuts up! I can walk away!)
Sorry that you are having to deal with all that dysfunction. True, you are not 8 or 16 years-old, and you have bigger responsibilities in life, IE: protecting your kids, your family and yourself. Looks like you have a good plan of action put together.

I would be very concerned with your father's aggressive driving.

Just remember, even if you guys go somewhere in a smaller group and the smaller group could fit into a single vehicle, that doesn't mean that you have to travel somewhere in that single vehicle. I wouldn't worry about offending someone, I would look after my family and self, and just go in a separate vehicle.

Monkey, with other signs....I think dad has the beginnings of alzheimers. He's always had a temper....but it's always been him getting loud and lecturing forever and ever and ever.... He has had times where he is intimidating, due to size, but not physically violent. But his job is too stressful....and when he is stressed and tired....he loses his nice filter....and is mean with his words and his temper is worse. This has been since his tbi. But at work, they keep piling more and more responsibilities....and the nice is not often something mom sees anymore. He NEEDS to quit, esp since this is affecting his home life. (And honestly, prolly his work life.). But...pride and ego....and a temper that he blames on others....never himself.....and a bit of gaslighting....fun times. But things are getting worse in other areas, and there are signs of alzheimers....and so we'll see. It's been a rough few yrs in many ways. Tbi's are nothing to sneeze at.
