My week

Saturday, June 16, 2012

If I had to sum up this week in a nutshell it would be emoticon

Wednesday I was suppose to make dinner for Joy's birthday. Gary came to pick me up at 4 and we were just leaving my house. We changed course and headed for Joy's job. She is ill. She has fibro. We went and picked her up and took her home then Gary had to take me back home. The only good thing about that was when we got upstairs before Gary left my son called and got to talk to Gary. They are very close and haven't talked since December when we visited Paul. That was the first broken plan.

Thursday I was going to go and see my son with my Mom. I was all set to leave my house when I couldn't find my keys. Then it dawned on me. Luis, my chore person had brought up cases of water from my car. I called M&R and sure enough Luis had my keys. He was with a client over a hours from me. By the time he could get the keys to me it would be too late to go. There is no way to get a hold of my son to say we can't come and he thinks we are coming. I know he is going to be upset because both of us are looking forward to this visit. I haven't seen him since December. He could be thinking something happened on the way up there or something happened to either me or my Mom. I did write a note and sent it off the next day. Hopefully they give him the mail right away. Those CO's can be cruel and sometimes they sit on the mail for days. Even if I called the prison and told them to give them him a message they don't. One of them told me once they aren't a messenger service. So I remarked oh I forgot CO's don't have emotions. They don't like me because I tell them off to their faces. My Mom tells me to shut up but I can't control myself. I hate them. There is a very good reason for it. I know that one bad apple does not spoil the bunch but this incident really turned my stomach and I can't stomach any of them now. I admit I am wrong but I can't get over it. It is my problem, I know.

Well, that is how 2 days really spoiled my week. Today I am doing laundry and cleaning out my refrigerator. Everything on the top shelf is freezing. I don't know if something is wrong with my refrigerator or what. My brita filter water has about 1/2 of ice. I don't have the temp up high either. That was turned down about a week ago and it is still happening. I can't afford a new refrigerator.

Thank God tomorrow starts a new week and a new start. Out with the old and in with the new. Here's to a new week. Tuesday I am going to see my son with my Mom. I told him if the car breaks down I will rent one. Unless one of us is sick or dead we will be there at 6-6:30

    I have extra keys with family members just for cases like this. Two of them also have keys to my door at home. Obviously, I learned the hard way but once the lesson was learned, it wasn't forgotten. (I once locked myself out of the car TWICE in one day and had to be rescued by the same person. He has never let me forget it. emoticon

Here's to a new and better week coming up. emoticon

    That would seem the logical solution. The car being a 1989 I would have to go to a lock smith. It would cost me $150,00 to have the 3 car keys made. We tried Home Depot and Lowe's even a Dodge dealer. Nope a lock smith.

    I hope your visit on Tuesday goes well--a close friend of mine has shared many stories of her experience in visiting her fiance in that setting and this reminds me of similar frustrations she has faced. Cheers to the new week ahead...it will be here very soon.

    Sometimes life just "sucks", but it is never very boring. One would think after years of having plans getting changed at the last minute we would just go with the flow....not always easy to do...I know first hand. Could you get a second set of keys (for emergencies) maybe leave them in your house some place.....
Hope today is better for you and this next week will be a positive nothing going wrong kind of week. emoticon

Any dream analysts in spark land?

Friday, June 15, 2012

Okay, I keep having weird dreams. I can remember them when I wake up but then they fade. Some of them are about friends that I knew in high school and some are about people I didn't particularly like in high school. Others are about people that I don't know. One night I dreamed that I had 5 guys fighting over me wanting to marry me. Now why would I dream something like this? First of all I never want to get married again, secondly, I am not currently dating anyone, haven't in over 7 years and thirdly it is not even a consideration and the last thing on my mind.

Other dreams I have. I dream that my son is always a small baby. When I dream of him, it is as a baby. He is 35. I think this could mean I want a baby? Maybe to play with, not to raise.

One thing that bothers me particularly is that I rarely dream of my Dad anymore. I know it is irrational but I feel abandoned by him. It is almost like losing him again. I use to dream about him alot. It was comforting most of the time. Is it because I am happier in life now and I don't need him as much. That is ridiculous, I always need my Dad. How can you will yourself to dream about someone? That is what we have left of him, our dreams and memories.

I would love to go to a psychic or a medium but I am afraid unless they are recommended. I had a real good one but she passed. I went to another one and she scared the bejeezus out of me with how accurate she was. I mean I was freaking. I lost track of her, I have no idea where she is. There are so many frauds out there. I was going to go see John Edwards show one time but what are your chances of getting picked out of the audience? Go to ebay and do a search and do an online reading. RIP OFF!!!!

So are there any dream analyst or psychics out in spark land? Let's hear from you? Or does anyone think I am totally off my rocker? My Mom does.

    I think Caseytalk has some great insights. Another angle on your son as a baby.... we think of babies as pure and good and blameless...I think you would like to be able to see you son that way....OR..... you realize there are many ways he hasn't grown up yet. You mentioned something traumatic in his past. My therapist told me that we often have arrested emotional development from such events.

Just some thoughts I wanted to share.

CASEYTALK 6/15/2012 9:19PM

    The dreams of your son as a baby reflect the fact that he always will be your baby. You will always feel protective of him, always enjoy taking care of him, always be thinking of his welfare. It doesn't mean you don't think he can take care of himself. It's a sign of how being a mother doesn't stop when your children are grown.

The five guys fighting over you are choices you have to make. Are there decisions you've been putting off or issues you've been avoiding? It may help you to put this dream behind you if you deal with the situation or, if you can, if you learn that you can usually choose more than one option in life.

You are dreaming about things other than your dad because you, like all of us, are changing. As you say, you're happier now. It doesn't mean you don't need your dad, but rather that you need to focus on other aspects of who you are now.

As to how to manipulate your dreams, you can! It is called 'lucid dreaming' and you can learn to do it. Google away. I've done it from time to time, and nearly always have used the opportunity to fly. It's great fun.

    No analysis re: what you're dreaming about, but I know for me, when I'm working through an issues of generally ISSUES, I dream about it. Often solutions come in my dreams.

Good luck figuring it all out.

    Often, marriage in dreams is not about marriage but rather about a big life change. Are you confused about what way to go from here?

As for your Dad, perhaps he has other things that he is doing and feels you are ok to move on without him coming to visit as often?

But, then again, I could be wrong.

I am not a weatherman

Thursday, June 14, 2012

It was two o'clock in the morning and a husband and wife were asleep, when suddenly the phone rang.

The husband picked up the phone and said, "Hello? ... How the heck do I know? What am I, the weather man?" -- and promptly slammed the phone down.

His wife rolls over and asks, "Who was that?"

The husband replies, I donét know. Some guy who wanted to know if the coast was clear.

The stress test stressed me out

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

I went for the stress test this morning bright and early. I will not get on a treadmill and I told the Dr. this. They were going to do the chemical stress test. They took more blood, I don't think I have any left in me. Then they had me lay flat on a table while they were taking pictures. After 45 minutes, I couldn't take it any longer and told the lady I had to get up my back was killing me plus my knees. The look I got would have killed me if looks could kill. I walked around for about 10 minutes, then finished with the itch(b)

My Mom was out in the waiting room, but she just had this done, with the treadmill about 5 months ago so she knew how long it would take. We waited about 1/2 hour or so, then got called into a conference room. I have to go back for the second half of the test next week. This is where they will inject me with some chemical that can cause me to have some kind of ill reaction, so I had to sign all kinds of papers. All the time I am doing this, I am thinking I can't be old enough to be signing this type of document. I can't be old enough to have these type of tests. Then I looked at my Mom. She is 86. I don't think of her being old, I think of her as being my Mom. I can see all us kids in the pool swimming in the back yard and my Mom yelling that supper is ready to get out of the water and dry off. For heavens sake she would say don't come in the house, go straight onto the porch. That is where we ate in the summer. We had a big screened in porch that went around the house. Beautiful.

This test stressed me out. Made me think. I am 57. My sister is 67, my brother is going to be 61 June 21. Vincent is 54 and the baby, Chuck is 44. Chuck's kids, Brianna is going to graduate high school in 2013 at 17(my baby) and Tyler is going to be 15 in August. I practically raised those kids from the ages of born to 2. My son is 35, I did raise him. Where do the years go? They didn't seem to go by that fast, but them bam she is a beautiful smart sophisticated intelligent woman. She is going to be a pediatrician and by God she will do it. I have never seen anyone so focused. Where does she get it, I don't know. Not from her Dad or Mom that is for dang sure.

Does anyone else find this to be true? The years just creep up on you. Something happens and them bam it is smacked in your face and you see it for what it is. Everyone has gotten older, things have changed? WAKE UP CALL

    The older I get the faster time flies. I hope your next tests aren't so stressful and you get good results. It only seems like yesterday that I was considered young now I am the older generation in my family--all the years went by too fast. My 3 sons are all grown and I'm still trying to grow as a person that I would like to know. I'm almost there now. I'm still struggling to always make good choices but no one can do that for me. Wishing you a good week. You are so lucky to have a healthy Mom and brothers and sisters and lots of close family.

Hugs,

Jill

    I think the years do go faster when we are "more mature" because each year is a smaller percentage of the life we have lived so far. For a 10 year old a year is 10% of his life, for a 50 year old is 2% of her life so far.
Are we getting older... no I think we are all like fine wine... we are aging in a way that deepens and enhances the flavors of our lives.
