Well, that is the plan. I mean I can't say that mind thought will change. I could get bugged by my ear ache that has been around for over a week. (oh, it is improving, but still can't sleep because the pressure on it when I lay down keeps me awake.) Or I could hear that someone is talking badly about me...knowing the person, it is not really surprising. But, hey, I know how I treat them, and ALL that I do for them. So, their problem not mine. Or, I could realize that I had my grocery list all written down, and now I can't find it!
But, nope, gonna try to fill all of the above. What, you are still laughing?
Ok, I might make it, if I call it an early day.
Oh wait, I forgot..my ear hurts when I lay down..
Since I got behind..again. Thought I would let u in on my being good project. I am wanting to get back to you all later on today.
I will let ya know how I did on the being nice..etc.
Do you ever feel like you are all alone when it comes to bad times? Well, you are not. Something that lately I have had to remind myself of.
I believe the ol devil gets his foot in any way he can. We have gone from our washer croaking ( I know, nothing big), to our van telling us that we have been saying hang on for far too long, to my Mom in Law leaving this world behind, to last nite my Dad being taken to the hospital, having a possible mini stroke. To my heading to the Dr. today, thinking I have an ear infection...ugh.
As hard as it is sometimes to remember, God knows what is going on...He has this..and He doesn't need my help. He just needs me to give it to Him. Now, did I say that I have that one down? buuuahhh, are you kidding me? Not a chance. I got that worry wart gene, it was passed down naturally.
So when you feel like you are alone in a fight, just know that there is someone else out there going thru the same thing, or something harder..but more than that..know that He's got this. You are never alone.
I will keep ya posted...off to try and get things done...=)
It has been a long couple of weeks...but we are moving on thru them. Ended up renting a car (good thing we get the family discount!) which we returned today.
My youngest son was gone to schooling for the Army this past two weeks..and I went out to do laundry and hang out with Jenna while she was helping them out. We took a walk around town...I was feeling like we had gone back in time...or maybe we were visiting Mayberry..lol. People would wave and smile...some stopped to chat. Don't see that very often any more. We are a people that push the button making our garage doors go up, pull in and close it behind us. Maybe a lil more of the knowing your neighbor would change the way things seem to be going.
All that to say, we have been blessed with some pretty awesome neighbors. Tonite there was a knock on the door. Our neighbor stood there with a big bag..she said after your past couple of weeks, we just wanted you to have some comfort foods. So she handed me the bag, said Enjoy..there was a huge container of pulled pork, a huge container of pasta salad, and a big pan of brownies.
How often do we take time out of our day, busy as they can sometimes be to think about what others may be going thru? What would it be like if we actually tried to make that a habit?
This is my beautiful mother in law...She went home to heaven on Sept 4. We were in Michigan for a week.
Home now, and from one thing to another. Van is acting up, so have a rental. Ugh, so not ready for a car payment again. A headache since Tuesday. Washer still not working...oh the list could go on and on. BUT....gonna focus on the good...now if I could just find it.
Here is something good!! I love this picture! =) She is a joy! I love her so very much...can't wait to meet our two new ones on the way...won't be long..first one is due Nov 4!! Then a few short weeks later the next! Did I mention that Nana gets to babysit them?? I am soooo excited!! Of course the hubby thinks I am crazy!! lol..
This girl will be returning home....she has been taking care of these two....
For these two..
While Josh has been gone for two week schooling for the Army. Well, taking care of them while Maria was at work...by getting them off to school and being there when they get home, a lil help with the housework and dinner prep. I am ready for her to be back here.
Well, I think I will go stand under the hot shower water...maybe that will help with the headache.
Hi! My name is Sherry...to those that are tuning back in, thanks for hanging on with me. Those that are just dropping by, hope you find something that will bring you back.
Let me share a lil bit about myself.
I have been married 32 years. Have there been bumps? Well of course. But they have been small ones. I have four wonderful kids. Perfect? ...................................Sorry, I had to stop laughing before I could continue. No they are not even close to perfect. But, I don't have to worry about drugs, crime, etc. I have two beautiful daughter in laws. Are they who I would have chosen? Probably not, but I wasn't picking, and I have no doubts they love my boys. I have three awesome grand kids, with two more on the way. (Christmas is gonna be pretty awesome around here this year.)
At 52 I find that I need to lose some weight, ok ALOT of weight.I am excited about every ounce, I mean an ounce is an ounce right! (too bad that is the going down numbers, the going up seem to like the larger ones) ..I have more acne now than I did as a teen. (What the heck is up with that?) I sometimes wonder what I have accomplished and what I am all about. I am learning one thing
I will stop for now, cause something called housework is calling. (another thing I at times struggle with). We just moved my middle son and his family in til they can move into the home they are getting. So a lil more stuff...a few more people. (Did I mention they have a dog? A husky, his name is Simba. I still say it should be Tigger, or better yet Psycho! The things we do for our kids.
So, here I start this journey. I hope you will run along with me. Who knows, maybe we will find we made some new friends.
I think this is me when I think about blogging. I want so much for my blogs to be exciting, interesting, funny like the ones I read. I think I often fall short of that. This is a girl who never kept any journals because I didn't want someone to find them and think "wow, this girl leads a very boring life." or "wow, this girl is a few fries short of a full bag."
So, I have decided to re introduce myself, to those that have stuck with me. Then introduce myself to those that just dropped in. (I hope you see something that makes you wanna hang around for a bit).
So, let me know if u laugh, shoot, let me know if u roll your eyes! I am game for any suggestions that help me make this better.
Here goes, I will start and hopefully improve with each blog.
What you will find here will be a journey. I think that as I grow older I am growing into the real me. I spent my life always making sure that I never did anything that would cause anyone to not like me...I agreed even when I knew I didn't really agree...I still like to be liked..but more and more it is becoming more of "this is me..I will be your friend for life, regardless of what you may do..but now I expect a little of that in return. I have opinions..and sometimes they will differ from yours..and I am learning that is "ok".
