Its been stressful!!

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

When my Daughter moved back in .. ( now this is the 3rd time) i thought i could handle it.. and at first i did.. but its been harder and harder. We now have 6 in this small 3 bedroom house.. Daughter.. and 3 grand kids.. and 3 dogs and i cat .. plus 6 cats outside.Its not many many are here and dont get me wrong i love them all and glad i get to see them each day but .. at my age its hard. We had our kids so early and didnt have time in our marriage to have fun and do things together. We had the kids already. So i was thinking i would have the time now. I am hoping one day soon things will be different but right now we are handling it.. I am trying to keep busy. working out.. walking.. cleaning.. and yard work to keep myself from going crazy.. Also. having lunch out with my gf really helps.. I know things could be worse.. and i am thinking positive and doing the best i can..I get my grandson off to school in the morning and some days pick up granddaughter in the afternoon.. Life is good.. cause i do have my family and have my darling husband and a roof over my head and food.. so not all bad.. !
I do appreciate all i have and the love in my life.

    This is a sign of our times. I have a daughter with 3 cats and a dog but hope they never have to move back with me. I really understand where you are coming from. We love them, support them, but there is something to be said when they are on their own and we get to be grandma without all the bustle, hussle and worry.

    Gosh, my heart goes out to you. Of course you love your family, but this should be your time! I totally understand as after staying with our two grandkids(3&5 years old) along with their parents for several weeks, I am soooo ready to get out and go home to my quiet and routines. So good to hear that you are trying to keep busy and do the things you like to do. That is so important to take care of you so you can help with everything else. these are difficult times and I know many families are having to live together. It's much like it was back in the 20's, 30's and 40's.
Sending you positive thoughts that things work out eventually and you get your peaceful home back.
