First, thank you everyone for the comments below the last post, I'm sorry I've not had time to answer each and every one of you, but please know that I enjoyed your comments, You gave me my smile for the day!

I've been horribly busy, again, but I did find some time to celebrate New Years with my Husband, kids, and brother. Some friends, our nephew and his gf, daughter and her hubby, and our son went out to eat and it was delicious. We then stopped at a local bar, and then daughter and sil left to go to see his sister before she went back to NE.

Our son, us, and my brother went to another bar to watch a band we know. It was so much fun.

My Brother's wife never showed up, neither did she show up for the birthday party for our 3 year old nephew the 2nd. I honestly don't think she's living there anymore. My Mom made me apologize to her in my messenger on FB (which I regretted doing, she saw it and no response). I really think she's not coming to these things just out of spite. Then Saturday, at the party, my Brother comes up to me and tells me I'm not supposed to be posting anything about her on FB..meaning those meme's people post, that I pass on, because I think they're funny, she's taking personally.

Get over it lady, everything's not about you. This is the second time he's said something like that to me, and I flat out told him I have her and her family blocked on FB. His response? "Well just don't post anything like that anymore" Ummm didn't I just tell you I haven't, and she's blocked? Sounds like she's also trying to start trouble because my brother, sister, and I.

The bad part about this whole mess is he never had her sign a prep-nup like he did his last wife. He'll lose his house, trailer, boat, truck, or end up paying her for it all. sucks.

Anyway, our Daughter's birthday is Friday and we're going to the comedy club for supper and a show. I can't wait.

Our organization also has a MAJOR donation on Thursday, so I have to be at the playground to receive the check. Then I'm on the radio to talk about it. YAY!!

Had one person post on the SCWHOG FB page (after they'd posted our poster for the upcoming meat raffle), that this "was a scam" and that we'd "raised the money 2 years ago, where'd it go?"

I answered him, explaining we'd had the architects look over the playground 2 years ago, and that we'd not started raising money until last year. I also noticed his best friend is related to my cousin, and works for JP Cullen (who has been working with us to raise the money), so I told him to contact his friend and have him ask his boss, and to also have him ask his relatives.

His relative, my cousin, posted that it was all legit and that he should be ashamed of himself for trying to bring a worthy project down.


I'm nearly back to normal, still have a scratchy voice, cold is nearly gone.

Anyway, picture time, have a great week. Sorry I'm gone so much, but I have a lot going on.

Our Daughter, SIL, and Grandpuppy, Gator, wishing everyone a HAPPY NEW YEARS:

    (((HUGS))) Glad you had a major donation! AWESOME!

    As for the family dynamics, just remember . . . you did nothing wrong. PERIOD. Can't change 'em, so just have to let 'em slide to the side.
