May has been the longest year of my life

Sunday, May 13, 2012

I was doing SO good at spinning the wheel on Spark - even hit a 30 day streak and then last weekend I did not even power up my laptop. It didn't occur to me until Monday that I broke my streak. Oh well, I am not too reliable during the summer as it is. This summer will be no different.

There is too much drama happening right now. My gorgeous DD is carrying twins and there are complications. God has answered one prayer - we are waiting for the others. I feel so guilty not being there for support. eMail and cellphones will never replace the touch of human skin.

That said, she WILL be flying in for Josh's graduation late next week. How blessed I am that she will leave her family for the weekend and spend it with us.

My parents are also flying in. I pretty much told them they were coming - I did not ask. This is so NOT like me, but this is so important to me that I insisted. My brother lives across town and it would give them the chance to see them as well. Or so I thought.

My brother did the unthinkable today and got in her face while on the phone with Mom's Mother's Day well-wishes. Now my parents are upset because he is still throwing a fit because they missed his DD's graduation just last year. She was not valedictorian - Josh is. I really think he is mad that he wasn't the first to think to ask them to fly since they can't drive this far anymore. So, my brat of a brother is gonna sulk across town while my parents are here - which will hurt them deeply. I know it takes two to fight, but it seems unavoidable. I'd really like a piece of him right now. I called him 3 weeks ago with the news of their arrival and he has allowed it to fester into this mess instead of rejoicing at the opportunity of seeing them. I am so pissed at him.

The decision was finally made and we will be moving at the end of June. Josh will be in Europe for two weeks that month and then college orientation. The first day of class for him is Aug 29 and then it will just be the two of us. It is the first time we will have ever been childless in our marriage.

Makes my head spin.

    Family drama sucks, doesn't it? I will hold your family in prayer that graduation day goes without incident. Lousy timing on your brother's part to choose Mother's Day as his opportunity to vent.

    Awww, i feel so bad for you! ya know those cheezy cyber hugs? (((((((*)))))))) i have a gazillion of them for you.
    We had a sermon at church the other day about temptation. i'm thinking to myself, i have no temptations other than chocolate and i can deal with that. the sermon continues and the preacher says when the devil sees that all is going well with you, he tosses a lemon in there. well GirlFriend, i am pretty darn sure that is what happened to you. things were just going a bit to smoothly.

    All you can do now is Praise God and pray for your detractors (or sibling in this case!)

    So Yippee! You are going to have a little family reunion, a graduation, some alone time with the hubster! tons of great stuff to celebrate. dont let that little devil ruin things! make lemonade instead!

    now, details on where you are moving to!
    Big Hugs and Love and the Peace of God that surpasses all understanding.
