Tim is a mess today and I don't think it is just about the new furniture. I think it is also from his time at the high school reunion and learning what others were doing and how they are better set financially. He came home for lunch and was severely depressed. I am working hard to not make this my "mess".

Tomorrow will be quiet. Isaac has Meg in the afternoon and Tim will be working on the renovation job again (gets paid!) I will be able to get some paid work done and enjoy the absolute quiet.

    That is exactly why I don't like high school reunions. Comparing ourselves to others is never a good thing. Praying this all works out.

    Looks like you had another full day of it. Hope Megan and Micheal have a great time at camp. Scooby doo what fun. I always enjoyed watching him. Hope Tim comes out of his depression and sees it's not what the other has, but what he has is all the wealth a man could ask for. Everything else is a plus. Guess I get that from my Dad. We weren't rich by any means. And, he always said he was the richest man alive. Besides that, I bet his high school classmates aren't well set as they say they are. Not many are.
    All the same, I will keep him in mind during my morning prayers. As well as you.

    Sorry that Tim is having such a hard time right now. I agree that sometimes people put on a show and maybe aren't doing as well as they say they are. Hugs.

    I hope that Tim is soon feeling better. I agree with Lapperoo people say many things at reunions they are not necessarily all true !

    Hey Janet,

    Glad you realize it is Tim's issue but that affects you when hubby is down. Reunions can do that to folks. I went to my 50th college reunion last fall and wondered if I'd feel the same way. I hadn't been back since graduation and no contact with classmates so that was going to be a challenge. It turned out well for me. I was able to look back at what I had accomplished and what Maria had given me. It made me thankful that I was accepted by the college (the only one I had applied to) and I realized that without that one chance that I took in applying how different my life would have been.

    Is there something like that that Tim could reflect upon instead of what the other classmates have done over the years. Also, how many beefed up what they have? I have always been surprised at how people pad the history. What were Tim's goals when he graduated? Has he accomplished them? Done more than he expected? It's not about the others, it's about what his goals were and how well he's proceeded with them.
