Ahhhh Normal

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

It felt good today to just do the things I set out to do and not have to worry about stuff and then came a message from my brother. He was complaining about something my son posted on FB. He wanted me to tell my son to leave out father out of his statements. So I went and read the statement. I rarely if ever agree with anyone's politics but I do believe you can say whatever you want. So my son posted something about his father and grandfather both defending our country and so on and so forth. He did not name any names but my "brother" wants me to correct him and tell my son he can't say things like that. Now do you always agree with everything your very adult children do of say. I am not going to stick my nose into this at all. Sorry about ranting but it just struck me as so odd. Like my brother should talk his children have some very odd things going on in their lives that I do not agree with at all but I would never expect him to correct them.

I did sew some today and I rested and read on the porch. I am tired but I guess I should have expected that considering the stress of the last week or so. Food was OK. I even made a nice baked chicken dinner with stuffing and green beans but I was starving an hour later. What was that all about. So I had some ice cream with fruit on it. Nice bedtime snack.

thank fulls
1. I raised very independent children who are pushing 50. I don't think I've tried to correct them about anything since they were maybe 16.
2. It was fairly cool out today so sitting outside was very nice.
3. Going to bed early because I want to.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll get more of Mateo's quilt done and finish up the laundry pile I created today when I picked up the living room. I changed all the towels and blankets that are covering chairs protecting them from cat hair. Then I will also make sure I have everything ready for my Embroidery Club class on Fri. We are making decorated t-shirts.

    Most of us can barely control what WE do, much less what anyone ELSE does!

    Once our children have reach adulthood, we no longer have the right to tell them what to do, unless they ask our advice. Wonder does your brother correct his own children with things he doesn't like, probably not. I really would be upset if someone told me to tell my adult child to change something on face book or anything else the complainer didn't like.
    Nice that you were able to sit out on the porch today and read, some fresh air is always good to get, It is hot here in southern Texas, but we try to sit out in our screened in room several times a week at night.

    I love that even though you were agittated with your brother, you still kept in mind your "thankfuls"... balance! Loved it!

    Seems you had a good day except for the drama. You are right … we can't control our grown children and if we try we let ourselves in for more upset.

    Glad you enjoyed your outside time. It was so hot here that I pretty much stayed in until I had to get out.

    Enjoy your embroidery club and your other sewing projects.
