Tuesday, lost in space

     I hope every one had a happy Easter.  I feel like I am lost in space and so out of touch.  Having company for the holidays really kicked my butt.  Just too much, physically and mentally.  My mom left the Saturday before Easter, but I had 7 older adults (over 80) at the house and Hubby gets the flu.  He isn't much help as is but now he is in the negative.  My arthritis was (is) flaring terrible and I just had a melt down yesterday after they left.  I cried all day long and felt sorry for myself.  Sniff, choke, whine.

     I know this is going to sound crazy, but I get really tired of Hubby's family telling me how, talented, hard working, spiritual, and wonderful I am.  In fact I am tired of parents going on and on about my talent and the shows and the costumes, etc.  It is nice to be appreciated and it is nice to be complimented, but how about writing me a check? I really don't want lip service I want my bills paid.  Am I nuts?  But the compliments get a little thick and I am am working like a dog and getting no where.

     I guess I don't see myself as all that wonderful.  I see myself as doing what needs to be done and doing what needs to be done, efficiently in the time given.  Is that so unusual?  I just want to turn around and snap back, you could do this too if you wanted to or had a desire.  Okay, okay I am being bit%^&.

     Please cheer me up!

     I was able to pay both the large payments to the CC's and today I will pay the last of March bills.  I have the money just did not have the time last week when Hubby's pay came in on good Friday.

     Out My Window:  It was 75 degrees on Easter weekend.  So beautiful!  I am going to spend some time in the sun shine, I hope it will make me feel better.

Have a great and productive day!



  1. you maybe just have to come out and tell them you need financial help? Sometimes people can't see past their noses?

  2. One way to look at it: If you owed someone $10, would you avoid them until you get the money? Would you not talk to them until the debt is repaid? Though I'm with you and I think the parents should get on board with paying on time, and some of them may just be giving you lip service in hopes you will forget about them being late, some may just be genuinely appreciative of you as a person. Most heroes (soldiers and everyday people) don't see themselves as great or heroic... just someone doing what needed to be done. You truly do wonderful things, and if you're not appreciating that, then we really have to work on that! And don't worry for being snappy. I'm sure you're tired, stressed and your hands are bothering you, so that could explain that. However, I don't want to hear you saying that you're not wonderful ever again. Feel better!

  3. I think the fact that you are paying those bills, shows that you ARE getting somewhere! It might be slower that you would want but there are trials in our lives that we just can't predict. You are a strong and amazing woman (and I only wish my bank account was big enough to write you a check right now :), and you inspire me all the time! I hope you feel better very soon, both physically and emotionally :)

  4. Some people are very "self-centered"... I hope you get the chqs you're owed! You're doing great, give yourself some credit my friend!! :)
