Waiting, Out of Control, and Writing a Novel

Saturday, December 20, 2014

I hate waiting around for someone to finish part of the assignment. Outline is done and the other person is working on the play now. Just wish she would hurry it up. Tomorrow is a busy day. Church in the morning and at night we have our Christmas concert. So not much time in between. My diet is a total flop. i am totally out of control yet with eating. The only thing that is going well yet is my grades. i got an A last week on my one assignment and A's on both assignments this week. My sister sent me a card and did not sign her name. makes me wonder if she just forgot or deliberately did it.
I started writing a novel and hope i can keep writing without editing as I go.

Christmas Update

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Well i got an A on the assignment about a multiteam group. Only between the professor and the Loud Cloud assignment instructions I did not get it 100 percent right. I was supposed to write about a team that was composed of different people like in my university. I was supposed to write about each ones different jobs. But the assignments are never clear enough. I just sent in two this last time. One about a feature story on an issue in our community and another about writing out two print stories about 2 different broadcasts. This week is another CLC group project and we have not even started yet! The other one seems like a no show and leave it up to me and this other woman. We are supposed to write a screenplay; like for television or the movies.

On a good note I finally got rid of Discover Card. They were harassing me by having a law firm call all the time and even give me a thing about a law suit. So I just took all my money out of savings and from the other bank and cashed it out.

All we have for lights this year is two window things; we could not find the other branches for the tree. And the small fiber optic tree from mom went bye bye this year; lights quit on it.
I have not weighed myself in months. i probably gained a lot of weight. I cannot fit into some of my clothes from last year. I need to stop gorging on chocolate too.

My daughter heard from a driver that takes her that the Dollar General in town just interviewed his daughter. His daughter overheard them talking there that they were planning to hire me back; my name came up. Also that they were planning to get rid of Austin. But first they need to find replacements too. The one who took over as lead is not very nice and her and Austin forced out the former store manager. it is in God's hands now. Heaven knows I need a job; the state cut our food stamps in half. Hard to buy all healthy food when your money is so tight.

Well we are on a roll now. One is doing the outline for it; while the other one writes the play and i edit and submit it.

    I will be praying that you get hired back. Good luck on the assignment. I hate having to depend on others-seems someon never pulls their weight if they think someone else will do the work.

i hate when teachers aren't clear enough and it seems like there a quite a few of them.
I do hope things work out well as far as getting your job back. But..I hope the people you work with are good to work with.

Poem i wrote about mother

Wednesday, November 26, 2014


Like glass falling on the floor
Scattering everywhere
A thousand little fragments
Tiny shards of memory

Moments etched in time
Forever in my mind
Her laugh and her smile
Imbedded in my heart

The way she held my hand
Playing cards with her
Eating meals together
Her simple words of thanks

The funny things she said
How she made me laugh
Kissing me on the cheek
When it was time to leave

Asking me about work
Supporting me through loss
There was love there
I thank God for mom

For all the years we had
The sweet Christian fellowship
I will miss her dearly
But one day up there

Once again we will meet
We will worship together
I can hardly wait
Till that blessed day comes

My heart may be shattered
I may be heartbroken
But I am really glad
That you are home at last.

    I always think of my father more around the holidays and your poem sure said what I feel.

Mom's Death and Dysfunctional Family and Other Things

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Well we are still grieving my mother's death; she was a sweet lady. My sister Carol talked about how she changed after she became a Christian. That she had such a sweet spirit all the time. I will miss her dearly. Our family is still dysfunctional. My sister Shirley refuses to forgive us; she hardly talked to me at the funeral. She does not even act like a Christian anymore. the Bible says we will know them by their fruits. Well hers are rotten so that means she is not one of us. god pointed out the verses in First John to me yesterday. The verses that say if you do not love your brother who you see than how can you love God who you do not see? If we love each other the love of God is in us. If we do not then we are none of His. I had to get another computer again. We need it with two of us going to college. i am struggling to understand my assignment this week. i am supposed to define the roles various people have in a multimedia website. I picked Sparkpeople.com. I am waiting on the professor for further illumination on it.

    When you come from a dysfunctional family it is easy to focus on other people.Our thinking can go from Fixing them to Blaming them. Death of a linchpin can make things topsy turvy. (Been there) It is good you have classmates and a church family to help keep you grounded. The rest is up to you. Think of the things you have accomplished this week. Every day you make the choices you make. Small steps add up and you choose whether to kick yourself over the mistakes or celebrate the good things. It is ok to give yourself time to be down and negative, then move on. Keep checking out areas of SparkPeople that give you encouragement. And do it one small step at a time.

Having A Bad Week In Class and Gaining Weight

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Well I am so very disgruntled, upset. irritated and disgusted. This week we are supposed to be doing a group project for Public Relations. We have not even started it yet because the third member is not responding. She does not post in our group forum. So how in the world can we get anything started?!! And there is only 3 of us in it too and the assignment is huge. I will be very upset if we get a poor grade on it. I am gaining too much weight and not exercising. A lot of my clothes do not fit either. To top off that; last week I found out my mom had a massive bladder infection and could have died. And I was never told cause my sisters forgot to tell my brother! He said they should not even be PO A's cause they are too far away. I agree and they are too fuddle headed besides.
