memories   Leave a comment

occasionally I take a walk down memory lane and think of my childhood, the past, all the mistakes I have made and life in general.
I love thinking about times when my children were little, especially when I see my grandchildren do something their parent (my child) use to do.
My oldest daughter has nothing but bad memories of her childhood and although I know I wasn’t a perfect mother I still and probably never will know what was so awful about hers.
Other then she was the eldest and had three siblings following her.
I doubt I will ever know, or she will ever tell me what I did so horribly wrong that she doesn’t want anything to do with me now.
It hurts but I have sort of gotten harden to the pain.

My other three still like me enough to want to be around me.
(or maybe they are there because of their father and I am just there too?)
I know Brian and Emily love me.
Matt is a lot like Paula and doesn’t care to show if he loves me or not.

like Paula, Matt is stand-off-ish and doesn’t put forth much effort to show affection unless he wants something.
Sad huh?

At any rate, I think a lot of my childhood too and where we lived, and how excentric our mother was and just life in general.

Paula told me once long before this estrangement began last August, that she didn’t want to come to the end of her life and think, “man I wish I had done this or that”
that she wanted to live life to the fullest now.
I don’t know if she feels like she has?

I know there are so many things I want to do yet, not that I plan on dying any time soon……but I think of all the things that prevent me from going out into the world.
Mainly money
🙂

My mother was a dreamer and I find, as I get older I have become more of one myself.
Not a bad thing……just not the way I want to be.
I want to be a doer, not a dreamer……

ahh….life…..

my weekend plans   Leave a comment

I can’t say I have a lot of great plans this weekend other then when I get off of work today I have to go and get my two youngest granddaughters from day care.
Then come home and do laundry and spend time with the kids, my older son and his daughter and feed the little angels probably before their parents get home.
Tomorrow I have to come back into work to do the building check, get a few supplies at Wal-Mart and a bit of grocery shopping.
and then watch the grand daughters again tomorrow night while their parents go out.
Sunday is wide open except doing the building check again.
Not a very eventful weekend, but next weekend my son and his wife are moving to their new house and it will be busy.
I have a four day weekend next weekend to get my house back into shape after they move out.
I think I have mentioned before “Dog Hair”
so disgusting and gross and it is every where in my house.
A lot of deep cleaning needs to be done.
Sigh!

on the wings of a snow white dove   Leave a comment

This song just came into my head and now I can’t get it out.
odd because I really don’t know the words other then, On the Wings of a Snow White Dove, He sends His pure sweet love, a sign from above, on the wings of a dove….
it is a pretty religious song….but not one that I know well.
odd to me how things just jump right into my mind without any reference to what I was thinking about????
