The bus rides were bad with the last smelling of urine for 9 hours!!!!!! I was sick for most of the visit but still had a good time. Saw my mom, sister, friends and dad was there visiting so saw him and Esther too. All in all it was a good visit, sister smokes a LOT!!!!!!! Next time I drive or fly np more buses!!!! Wed, 17 Jun 2015 20:27:19 EST sprinkling http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5930369 I was going to go for a walk outside so got my water, phone etc and headed out the door, down the stairs and was picking my direction when....I felt a drop of water hit me so I chose the park because it is pretty close to home and I figured if it started to sprinkle I could get home quick enough so fit bit wouldn't get to wet. But when I started to head to the park it started sprinkling a little more so I decided best not to chance it so came back up stairs and am now on my treadmill. Mon, 18 May 2015 19:33:11 EST Going home http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5928876 Yes I am going home to Vermont and not sure where I will be going from there.... Hubby wants to move to Oklahoma which is where she is from...... So at this time it is uncertain where we will be, so I can't get my return ticket until later..... Anyway I will be staying with an old friend cause my sister doesn't have the extra room for me. Fri, 15 May 2015 23:04:07 EST home for a week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5927043 Hubby said I could have a vacation, said I could go home for a week..... After all she left for over a month but....... How is it so easy for her to send me away? It was so hard for me to watch her leave.... Maybe it was because even though she said she was coming back I didn't believe her but.... I felt like I was dieing when she left... for the first few days before I gave myself a good shake, put my big girl panties on and did the things I knew needed to be done, and try to move on with so... Tue, 12 May 2015 15:52:18 EST The gift from Becky http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5926638 So the gift from my youngest daughter was a homemade movie and it made me cry.... It had pictures of my kids from small to now, of pets both young and old, and my mom who has passed on.... It was a beautiful gift!!!! Mon, 11 May 2015 23:45:08 EST Mother's Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5925920 So today is a hard day for me cause I miss my mom so much. However the kids deserve for me to have a good day so I do my best.... My oldest daughter and her boyfriend took hubby and I to dinner for Mother's Day and bought me a very cute Eeyore summer pj set, my son Christopher bought me a rose, my youngest son made me breakfast, hubby got me flowers and all the kids and hubby did all my chores and then some.... I went to the movies with my youngest daughter and watched "The Age of Adaline" (w... Sun, 10 May 2015 18:43:23 EST Robyn's new puppy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5925039 So she got a puppy it's part Pomeranian and part terrier he is 7 weeks old and a real chunker!!! He has a lot of fur.... He is very cute and loves to play.... Of course the other dogs have mixed feelings about the puppy but of course as usual my rat terrier is terrified of it!!!! This is normal for her considering hubby's cat thinks my rat terrier is her kitten.... We think it's because she will doesn't grow and she is smaller then your average cat so she takes care of her, cleans her and def... Fri, 8 May 2015 22:00:32 EST Ever feel like your becoming the maid? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5924511 Here's the thing... I have chores that I have to do everyday and I'm ok with that.... However when you are using plates to bake cookies in the microwave don't continue to get a clean plate!!!!!! Unless of course you plan on washing the dishes yourself!!!!! The 14 year old must think I am the maid because in 2 days I washed pans, utensils and more plates then a family of 7 can even use!!!!!!! Hello!!! I am your mother not your maid!!!!!! Pile up dishes and then just leave???? Oh no not going t... Thu, 7 May 2015 22:11:07 EST I have run out of things to do http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5923719 I had a very short list of chores today but thought they would keep me busy longer.... My house is quiet and have nothing to do.... I could go for a walk but I am waiting for a phone call that I really thought would have happened this morning and it still hasn't..... I really wish people wouldn't let things get so close to dead lines. Makes me nervous and frustrated.... Well I could get on my treadmill for awhile.... That I think I will do Wed, 6 May 2015 13:35:37 EST Went to dinner http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5923330 Robyn and Cliff took Kelley and me to dinner at the Texas Road House for Mother's day... I had a very nice time.... Food was good, service was lacking but this is the only time we have had such service.... Anyway I went to 2 classes at the YMCA and now I am just chilling in front of my tv..... Tue, 5 May 2015 22:07:16 EST I was so mad yesterday!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5922516 So I got up yesterday morning and found that hubby had taken Daimon with her to work for Betty (yard work) which was fine because it meant I got to sleep in... Only when I got up I found several surprises!!!!! He hadn't done ANY of his chores!!!! Left me a mountain of clean dishes to put a way, a mountain of dirty dishes to wash, didn't fill ice trays, no water for the dogs and the upstairs stairwell was a nightmare!!!!! To top all that off people put all kinds of junk on my desk and the tabl...

I even explained it several times and let them feel the large rock knot on the back of my head. Now you think they would try and leave me alone... However everyone has questions about crap that could be answered by someone else or asked a later date. I continued to tell them my head hurts please stop. The questions do not stop until I get mad and then the 14 year old "wow your salty" I really can't stand that. My hubby says I'... Fri, 1 May 2015 20:16:41 EST was an ok day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5920390 I finally gave in and had the lump on the back of my head looked at, dr said its just a benign sist don't worry about gave me a shot in my hip and sent me on my way..... Hmmmmm my question how does he know its benign??? Any way his shot gave an incredible headache to go with the head pain and the nauseous feeling I was already suffering from...

I just felt like I was constantly on the go. Then I get home and do my normal cleaning to find that I needed to go to the store which was fine cause it gives me the rest of my steps but I get home to the bottom of our 40 stairs and he come my boys from the neighbors house. So I thought they could carry a couple of bags each and that would be that.... After all there were only 4 bags and they were light!!!! ...

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 20:46:53 EST I don't have to like it, I just have to accept it http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5915443 Hubby is up for promotion and it is something we talked about before she got the job. She promised to not work 40 hours a week and promised not to work weekends unless it was an emergency..... Now suddenly she is being offered a position as team leader, and will be working 40 hours a week and weekends..... Like I said I don't have to like it I only have to accept it............... But I am tired of the breaking of promises..... Why does she make them when she can't keep them......

That was it for today. Really hate when she pays me for hardly nothing I just don't feel right about taking it but she is my elder so I'm even less comfortable in arguing with her so other then questioning why she is paying me so much and making comments like Betty this is too much which she ignores I have nothing...

She says she is heading home tomorrow..... What if she doesn't? What if she is just saying that to get me to stop asking when she is coming home? What will I do if she stays?

Problem is I haven't agreed to any such thing! What I said was I would go to Oklahoma during the summer to see if I liked it, to see if I could get a long with her friends and family. It is hard for to imagine getting a long with people who have treated her so badly..... I don't know if I can let the past go even though it's not my past..... Fri, 3 Apr 2015 21:35:37 EST another day with Betty http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5904461 Well I got a phone call this morning at around 10 Betty needed a new phone charge cause she left hers in a motel room 2 hours away. So she picked me up and I got her 2 then went to her house and while she got ready for her 1:45 apt I cleaned her house. Then we did the dr. thing and then I went and did more shopping for her. Then I got home to go grocery shopping for us and then came home and cleaned our house! I am tired!!!! Thu, 2 Apr 2015 22:21:21 EST Betty kept me too long http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5903887 She wanted me for about noon and I got there we went and got her car and then did grocery shopping then I put everything away but she didn't want me to leave so I didn't get home until almost 5 so instead of going to the y I just did stuff around the house and a treadmill. Wed, 1 Apr 2015 23:29:39 EST went to the y did my classes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5903206 3 classes I felt like I was lacking and my phone kept going off while I was at the gym.
