stuck between a rock and a hard place

Friday, June 24, 2011

I survived my parents bitter divorce!They fought right in front of us kids and did unmentionable things to each other!The verbal abuse was the worst of all.My daughter got divorced years ago...she was the scorned wife.Now she talks about my ex-son in law to my granddaughter.Awful bitter remarks that are wrong.I always thought he was an immature Jerk but,kept it to myself.My daughter lets her comments about him flow freely.It hurts Mercedes very much but,I've talked to Alisha and it hasnt done any good!I dont want to get Mercedes in trouble by talking to her mom but,she shouldnt have to hear her mom's bad mouthing her dad.Her dad has talked some awful stuff about us but,we wont stoop to that level.It has to end somewhere but where?If any of you have gone through this,I need advice!! emoticon SUSAN

  I went through the same thing with my son. He said terrible things about his kids Mom. Everyone told him to stop, that he was hurting his kids, hurting them more than their Mother.

My youngest son is the one I think who finally got through to him. He does try now not to talk bad about his ex in front of his kids, and I think time has also played a part.

All I can say is if there is someone your daughter really respects could talk to her and hopefully time will help.

I hope it all works out for you.

    How about teaching Mercedes a special private prayer for peace and forgiveness, one that the two of you can say together each time you see two people that are mean to each other. Sooner or later, she will say that prayer for her mother, and maybe God can do what we cannot?

  I've been in simmilar sisuations my ex was verbally abusive amoung other things. I left him whem are son was 8 and found a great man but never bad mouthed the ex to his son he found out later how he was on his own. Your daughter is still ver angry but needs to think about what shes doing. good luck with your sisuation. emoticon

  It's not fair for one parent to bad mouth about the other parent to the child. I am a product of this. As it turns out I now don't talk to my mother at all (she did the bad mouthing) and my father and i couldn't be closer.

Not stooping to his level is a great choice. Your daughter needs to follow your example. There's a time and a place, but not when the kids are around. Good luck.

Playing like a kid

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

When we were children,we had alot of responsibilities!We were considered extra hands on my grandparents farm.Work before play was the motto.So,up before sunrise,feed the chickens,cows,pigs,etc.Eat breakfast,go to church each day(granddad was a preacher)come back and start really working.We cleaned the house,chopped wood,picked fruit and vegetables,hauled hay,worked in the garden and mowed grass.Grams fed us well and loved us but it was the same everytime we came to visit.But,no different than at home.We were busy doing something all the time.When Mom gave the green light to go be kids...POOF we were gone.We ran to the creek or river and played till we were worn out!We built forts,rode bikes,played games,baseball,kickball...you name it!But,my favorite thing was to play out in the rain!!Mom knew it was going to rain but she would have us do an"indian rain dance"so we thought we caused it to rain!My mom loved the rain playing.It's fun to get out and play like a kid now that i'm 51 and can still play.My grandson asked me on Fathers day,Why isnt your hair gray like my friends grandma's?And,you're fun too!I just had to laugh!I guess it helps alot to keep playing... emoticon emoticon emoticonSUSAN

cleaning house is exercise?

Monday, June 20, 2011

Recently while chatting with a friend,I mentioned that I was going to clean my house and burn some calories!She laughed and said that doesent count!I showed her a pamplet from my doc's office and it blew her away!It isnt going to do a whole lot for swimsuit season but,every little bit counts!sweeping,mopping,laundry,dishes,vac
uuming,dusting,raking,mowing grass and washing the car are all counted as calorie burning!So why arent i the proper size??? emoticon emoticonSusan

    I do believe housework DOES burn calories. My Mom was always cleaning, baking, etc. and even today at 94 yrs old she is thin. Today, I washed my inside windows and vertical blinds. Doing that and vacuuming makes me feel warm. So, yes, I do believe it's exercise.
