...to my Treehouse, where I do a bit of sharing goodies with my readers, and a lot of showing off of my CT tags. It's my little nest in the busy world of psp.

Squirrely has been my nickname since I was a child, both because it rhymes with my real name, and because I'm forgetful and just plain nuts at times. I've been tagging for 2+ decades off and on, and now that I'm retired/disabled I'm pretty much on most of the time now.

I love to share what I make with you, and I LOVE it when you respond with love back for the shares. So have a look around, take what you like and enjoy yourself. Just watch for splinters.

Good Morning to anyone out there :)

I thought I'd say hi and give a sunny little update on my progress to overcome the agoraphobia that's plaguing me now and keeping me away from tagging, facebook and Misfits.  Not to mention LIFE in general, which is the real hard part.

But there's progress to note, but the back story is necessary to see how huge this was for me.  Last year, my daughter in Australia and her fiance invited me to come there all expenses paid because they were going to get married in a little courthouse wedding with dinner afterward.  I had been having sciatica problems already so that's when I took a 6 week break from the computer & tagging to literally lay in bed and heal.  It worked well, but not enough for an 18 hour flight, and my doctor gave me a literal thumbs down.  They decided to hold off on the wedding to see if I could heal further, but told me they wanted to marry within the year - so I had my goal.

Fast forward 8 months to now.  Their little courthouse wedding has turned into a destination wedding at a mountain top resort, casual yet elegant with a main house and a few cabins for guests to stay in, in September of this year.  Shit....shit.....shit.  It's a DIY wedding as well with them making all of their decorations, flowers, gifts, etc.....so she really needs my help, aside from just desperately wanting me there in general.

I had to approach this with baby steps because I get overwhelmed every time I think of it, and the first step was getting my passport.  The government wouldn't come to me, so I'd have to go to them to do this, which has been the focus of my last two weeks of therapy. I woke up yesterday, hell bent on being at that wedding, loaded myself up with meds and check it out!!!
I made it!!  It was tough, don't get me wrong, but I guess the motherhood gene was stronger so that's what I'm going to rely on from now on.  This was a huge step towards progress for me right now, and I'm so happy I did it.  Whether the wedding is still do-able I don't know.  But at least now I CAN go because I have a passport - or will in 6 weeks.  Baby steps.....baby steps.....
