this day sucks


Wednesday, August 14, 2013

The weather sucks.. hot, humid and rain in the forecast again today

My knee is killing me because my over excited dog ran into it with his hard plastic bone.

started doing some cleaning and had to stop and put the leg up

Nothing from my real estate agent so I started exploring options of companies that doe lease purchases and rentals so I can move up there with the rest of the family

then our oldest child calls me . He lives with his finance, her daughter and their newborn. Since she is on maternity leave she is out at half salary. WIth the economy and as they nicely put it, he is over educated (2 masters degrees) it is hard to find a job. So at present he is working at Six Flags part time through Oct. Her parents own the house they live in and even come down on weekends to start in part of it. They have been paying everything until the kids are both working full time. So my son calls today and asks me to help them pay their utilities bills as her parents told them on Monday they can't afford it due to their other tenants not paying their rents for August. I really didn't mind helping them out, but on the second phone call with my son, it is now found out the electric bill should have been paid last week and most likely they were due for termination. That would be all they need with a 2 mon4h old. So tomorrow I am off to mail him a care package and pray that the jobs he has put applications in for in this field, something good happens.

I was so upset that I went and cleaned out my car, then ripped my drawers apart just to keep myself from screaming in frustration.

I know there is a reason for all of this, and I wish someone would make it clear what God's
plan is in all this.

    Sometimes I find that when everything seems to be hitting the fan, that I need to step back a little and get some perspective. I try making a "thankfulness" list. I just start listing all of the things in this life that there are for me to be thankful for. From the simple (teeth to brush- even if they're store bought!,, hair to comb, etc.) to the big stuff (basically good health, a roof over my head, clothing to wear and enough extra cash to buy yarn - even if its from Goodwill!!). When my focus is more on the "thankfuls", the stuff hitting the fan becomes a little more bearable. Am praying that this will help you to find some perspective too....
Blessings-

  I truly hope that your son appreciates all the help you are giving to him! You are a great Mom and yes I would go rip something apart as well!

Hope your next day is better.
