way to personal

ug I’m so tired. I am trying (as per norm) to do to many things and because you know I have free time I have talked some really awesome wonderful women into writing as a collaborative team. Its going to be great! but of course it is more time but at least life is being lived to the fullest.

We have been having a rough bit of it with family. Little is currently trying my patients I am pretty sure it should be spelled tri-ing for 3 because 3 is a hard age. For everyone. She screams a lot happy, sad, mad, all of it is at full volume. All emotions are at full volume too. She feels everything strongly.

I think some days I’m just to worn down to think of new creative ways to make our days smoother. If you have ideas by all means let me know. I’m not a mom that thinks I know it all. I am mom who is trying to survive in a way that make life not only tolerable but happy for everyone.

I know she is a little off right now because Hubs was gone for a few days. We got a call one morning that his dad had congestive heart failure and was in a coma so two hours later and I’m driving him to the airport. he was gone for 3 days and her being a daddy’s girl was just plain miserable. Which means that I was too but he is home now and tomorrow is a new day. I think we will start tomorrow by making pancakes.

Hub’s dad is now out of his coma but not out of the woods. Hubby is taking it hard of course and I am trying to figure out how to be most supportive but he doesn’t want to talk about it.

Well I was going to talk about food tonight but I guess I had other stuff one my mind. Thanks for being out there and “listening”

    You have been on my mind a lot lately. Seems like everything around me reminds me of you 🙂 hearing your stories of what you and rose are going thru takes me back. I remember those days and all I can say is that it does get better, it won’t stay this way forever. You both are learning how to live with each other…its a process for both of you. I’m going thru it now with Jack. It takes everything in ME to remain calm but it seems every day I either wanna cry or scream! I love ya honey…you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Oh our poor father in law! I hope he gets better! I have a 3 year old to… I refere to him as the BABY DINOSAUR because when he’s in his room “napping” He sounds like the Velsoraptor in Jurassic Park that got loose in the opening episode. My suggestion is just Laugh at her! Just giggle and smile and not to take her seriously. All of this MUST be done behind her back of course! But like ANY good EMPLOYEE does to a cantankerous old boss!

  3. Bless you and your family. I understand how your husband feels and then I also understand how you feel as well. The best you can do is just be there and be loving as you already are. Well wishes for your father in law. I hope everything works out better for him and in turn for you and your family.
    Hang in there as this too shall pass. Smile!

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
