Jim and I took a much needed mini-vacation last week. I had a blast…..didn’t wanna come home. If I ever get the opportunity to move to Gatlinburg, Tenn., I’m goin for it. I love that place. So peaceful and serene in those mountains. I took lots of pictures, so when I get them developed I’ll put some on here…..providing they turned out ok. The camera I used was left at my house by the people I bought the house from. They didn’t want it, and it’s a JEWEL. A Minolta Maxxum 7000. I LOVE it…..just hope it works. I’ve never taken any pics with it until last week, so we will see.
Update on my daughter.
Nothing has really changed. She still has her job…..but only by the skin of her teeth. She has been late several times…..and also has taken a longer lunch break than she is supposed to. Her boss must be a very patient lady….that’s all I can say. Cause I would have already fired her by now!
All day Friday I had this horrible feeling that I just couldn’t shake. You know one of those feelings where you just KNOW something bad is gonna happen. But it didn’t….thank God!!! I was so edgy all day long….and by that night, I just broke down and started crying.
I miss my grandkids…….so much! I haven’t seen them in over a week. Now I’m sure some of you are saying….huh? Just a week??? But the oldest grandchild…..lived with us over a year and I saw her every single day. She and I have this special bond like I’ve never had with anyone. Not seeing her for a week has really messed me up. She has been with my daughter’s boss. They are there….more than they are with my daughter. It’s not really a bad thing, tho. They are being taken care of, going to church, and there’s not any yelling or fighting in front of them. In other words……they aren’t around a bunch of DYSFUNCTIONAL people!!! I tell myself this on a daily basis…..sometimes it works…..sometimes it doesn’t. I miss them….and that isn’t gonna change! I just wish I was physically and emotionally able to take them myself. But I know I can’t……unless I had to….then I would have no choice. I just want what’s best for them…..and sometimes…..it isn’t always what I want. I want my daughter to step up to the plate and be a responsible mother….and take care of her own kids. And understand that children learn what they live. But I don’t see that happening anytime soon, either.
Hope all is well with all of you……and thanks for the comments and advice!
Hugs to ya’ll
