another adventure!

Saturday, April 24, 2010

our spark day ended up just being a meeting of 3, but we still had some fun! we put in some decent hiking with the usual introductions and formalities. then we went to lunch and enjoyed a nice meal and some more b.s.!! once my mom and i got home however, the real work began. she had taken her weekly pill container from the bathroom when we left the house so she could take her meds while we were gone and couldn't find them once we got back home. we searched the car up and down to no avail. so back out of town to our meeting place we go to search for her meds. a good 30 mile trip one way! we went everywhere we could think of and no luck. we did however get some ribs from a place we've been meaning to try for a long time on the way back. then as we are going down our street for the "last time" we spotted something white and scattered on the street. guess what it was. before we left the house the first time in the morning, my mother had placed her pill container on top of the car and forgot it, in turn it fell off the roof half way down the street as we left and had the whole day to be crushed. we picked up most of the pieces, i think!all the meds were completely gone. what a day!

    Sorry to hear about the day... my hope is that one day (and it will happen) you'll look back at this day and laugh and in a strange way remember it fondly... our mothers have an almost intune sense on how to drive their children nuts... just how they do it so well and so differently with each child and get the same reaction beats me...

    Sorry your meeting turned out to be such a hectic day - seems to happen to everyone from time to time! Glad you at least got to try the ribs but hope they weren't too fattening after all that. Hope you have a calmer week ahead and great sparking!

things were going pretty well until my dog started acting up a little. then my grandma showed up just long enough to upset us. and to help matters along the way, my mom had an attack because she waited so long to eat and her sugar made her sick. well, tomorrow is another day! and we are supposed to meet with a few fellow sparkers in the morning. i can't wait!!

i was able to rake in plenty of exercise today. i also had a few hours of time alone while my mother went to an appointment this afternoon and for one blessed day my grandmother didn't bother us. now it's time to sit back and get ready for what i hope will be a decent nights sleep!

    All family is required to be a bit nuts. It makes us appreciate our friends all the more. :)

    After reading this I started singing this song in my head. It's Ingrid Michaelson's "Keep Breathing". Sometimes when things get rough it becomes a mantra of sorts.
"All that I know is I'm breathing
All I can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing"

Hope things get better soon.

    Your family sounds like mine... nuts all of them... I've learned to (and still learning) accept them with their quirks, their nutty behavior and how expertly they can get on my nerve, find the one remaining brain cell and blast it out of my head and just know that's who they are. Then I look at it and say well at least I have things to talk about with friends over dinner and coffee. We laugh and you know it makes it worth while that they are very crazy. So just hang in there... as they say you can't pick your family but hopefully we make better choices in friends.
