Emotional Roller Coaster... Looking at the bright side!

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Well... Grandma had more than a stroke. Apparently, she had a stroke and a heart attack as well.


This month is like being on an emotional roller coaster. emoticon

Last night, I hit the gym and walked for 30 minutes. emoticon When I got out of there I felt so much better. emoticon

Tonight, James and I are going to play pool. emoticon I am hoping that will help my stress level too.

My good news... I am very blessed. I am getting a freezer on Thursday. emoticon


Could you handle it?

Emotional Weeks...

So confused....

I talked to my best friend last night... I kept telling her I don't understand why I feel depressed. It was at that very moment everything that has been bugging me came to the surface.

I am a really tough cookie for actually being able to cope with everything that is there...

1. My Grandmother is dying. She had another stroke yesterday. She is in the hospital. I was just told this morning that she will not becoming home. She is going to a nursing home. I was so hoping she will be able to have one more Christmas. For her to see her second grandchild. I was keeping a positive outlook that I might not have a few weeks I might just have a few days.

2. My cousin, Thomas, has been gone for a month. I cannot stop crying. I only do that at night. I see the posting for his mother. It just breaks my heart.

3. One month after thomas' passing is National AIDS Awareness Day... Which reminds me of my very good friend who passed last December. I wish he was still around.

The less depressing but still important stress...

4. I have been sick for the last week with a soared stomach.

5. Kaleb has been sick with a viral/ear infection.

6. I have a boyfriend that I don't know if it is just me but seems distant.

7. I have ex boyfriend that is trying really hard to get my attention.

8. I have a good friend trying to get my attention as well.

9. I don't understand where all these men are coming from. That confuses me to know end.

10. I wish my best friend was here. The only friend I have made in the last year and half of being down here is moving back to Arizona.

    I think it's very good for you to figure out why you're so stressed. You must be very strong to be handling all of this at once. I'm very sorry to hear about your grandmother.

The question is, can anything be done to lighten up your stress load? Like Chrimsonfyre posted, maybe take a moment to focus on the positives. Maybe make a list of all of the things that bring you joy? Or, maybe just take some time for you. Do you have a favorite escape like a bath or a new book? The only other thing that I can think of is turn on your favorite tunes (something with a good beat) and just dance around the house.

    I am sorry that you are feeling blue. Have you tried going for a walk to clear your mind and see if the endorphins help? Sorry to hear about your grandmother and friend and cousin, etc. Sounds like a lot of things going on right now.
Would it help to focus on something good to see if it helps those feelings of sorrow?

Kids... Mine and His!

Monday, November 26, 2012

Good Morning...

This weekend was interesting. James and I got out kids together to see how the day will go. I think it went well. Sorta. I am planner. I have always been and always will be. He has no structure at all. It is a little frustrating. Then we went out to eat. It bothered me so much to watch his kids order soda for breakfast emoticon . They didn't eat one vegetable all day. emoticon

I wanted to cry because all of his kids are a overweight. Not extremely overweight but overweight none the less. The first things the oldest boy who is 13 says to me is I am not fat I have a chubby face emoticon . I didn't even say a word. I am thinking to myself, he must get picked on at school because why would anyone say that without a prior conversation?

James made a plate for the youngest boy and he didn't want to eat it all. He said he should eat it all. I actually spoke my mind on this one and said we shouldn't be in the clean the plate club emoticon. It is totally not healthy. He didn't say anything after that.

This is going to be a lot of work. This is just something I won't compromise on. It made me so sad this weekend remember what it was like to be at school emoticon and overweight. I just don't want everyone to have to go through that!

I am getting very excited. Thursday morning, James is going to see my home that I created for my family. emoticon I am hoping he likes my taste. emoticon

Then afterwards, we are going to his families home for Thanksgiving dinner. emoticon I am going to be introduced to his children as well. emoticon I am very excited and very nervous.

I think I am going to bring a pie. emoticon He said I didn't have to bring anything but I just cannot show up at someone's house without something. emoticon

We are going to start doing things together with our children. It is very difficult to see each other with work and trying to find babysitters. So I suggested we take the children to Christmastime emoticon at a Horse Farm. James is excited about it. emoticon
