Yesterday was a really good day in recovery I felt. We had a good time at church, I enjoyed the Sunday school lesson, and there weren’t really any issues during sacrament meeting.
When we got home, we got the shrimp on the grill and the pineapple too – it was an awesome dinner!
Then we headed on a bike ride on the new trail. I was grateful everyone went and that everyone was cooperative about wearing helmets. The bike ride was perfect: we biked to Canyon View park and then back – a total of 10.25 miles! Chloe was a trooper and didn’t cry at all, and Madi and Caleb made it look easy. This was Tyson’s first long trip and he slept half the time. He got a little fussy on the way back but it seemed to go well for the most part. Jayden was perfect too.
Before we went on the bike ride, things did get a little contentious because the kids seemed to make excuses or blame for why they shouldn’t have to help do things. It’s so hard when both Becky and I try to be patient, we ask nicely, we are calm, and they just won’t either do the work or shut up about why they shouldn’t have to.
Anyway, I’m hoping that today can be a better day in that regard, especially because it’s the first day of summer…
Beck and I also went to see the Bishop before church to check in, let him know how we’re doing, and give him some insight on what we’ve learned. We also wanted to let him know that we are here to be a support to any who may be going through the same problems in our ward.
He was nice and both Becky and I got to share. However, I don’t think he completely gets the affect this addiction has had and will continue to have on the wife. Becky shared some and he listened, but I’m not sure her really understood.
I want to be helpful and know it’s really hard for Becky to feel that the Bishop isn’t completely on her side. I don’t know that he’s against her by any means, he’s just not well educated on the topic and has no clue what she’s had to go through.
So that was yesterday.
Today, however, and last night, have been really stressful so far. Harman sent me some requests for a new project and this opened up a whole can of worms. I found issues with a few sites – hacks and things I didn’t really know how to fix. I spent the next few hours trying frantically to fix things with the help of hosting support.
I’m getting really nervous about the security of my sites. If something were to break and I was to lose all the information, I don’t have any idea what I would do – it could kill my business.
