Here we go again! Son was arrested Sunday again. This time they have him remanded without bond so I'm hoping he will be in for awhile and pray that he will accept some help with his drug problem.

He came over here 4 times in the last 5 days just harassing me. I kept calling the cops and he kept leaving before they got here. I managed to keep myself calm. Advice from my doctor who is concerned I'm going to have a full blown stroke after the 3 TIA's I've already had.

I go this morning to court to complete the eviction. Then I will file a restraining order. As long as he is doing drugs I just can't be around him. He has proved to be way more than anything I can handle.

For those of you that pray please do so.

Thanks for listening!

How I'm going to get through the next 7 weeks. Today would have been my dad's 95th birthday and it's the first one he's not here to celebrate. Having a tough time today and I don't even know how I'm going to get through Thanksgiving, Christmas, my birthday (which is the 1 yr. anniversary of his passing) and New Year's Eve. Especially when I don't expect my only family (brother and his wife and daughter) to be there for me.

Wish I could just snap my fingers and find myself already in 2018.



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Holidays are going to be tough for me too this year after losing my husband. I know though that I have grandkids that are going to want to have a nice holiday season and that's what it keeping me focused and driven. Life goes on for the living.

I'm sorry that it will be tough for you too, glad you have the grandkids to focus on. When my mom passed 12 years ago my niece had just been adopted a month before, so it helped to have her to focus on that first year. But now I've got no relationship with her thanks to my brother and sister-in-law being jerks and I'll most likely be either all alone or with friends and their families.

My sympathy to all who are mourning this year.
I know it just sounds like a flat over-used platitude, but it does get better as time passes.

I'm sorry. Have you ever considered volunteering somewhere. Just about every city or town has a soup kitchen type place that puts on a big Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless or just people with no place to go. It can really give you a sense of purpose. Might be just what the doctor ordered.

MY son has been walking to Wal-Mart every day for 2 weeks to see if the have any mini SNES's in stock and today after unsuccessfully trying to snag one online, he called and they have them in stock. Crossing my fingers and toes hoping he manages to walk down there and get one before they're all gone.

Christmas Swap
I just noticed that the deadline for signups for the Christmas Swap is Sunday the 19th - I love this swap and can't believe I came this close to missing it!

Went to Walgreens to pick up a perscription, she said it would be ready in an hour and 45 minutes ( one pill). Walked around the grocery store for half an hour, now trying to sit at Starbucks for another 30 minutes before walking around the grocery store for another 30. Fun day.

Got all my errands and chores done so will not have anything to do Saturday or Sunday
I like my job..the people are nice and I started out prepping parts for the 3 ladies who put all the parts together (there is a lot of parts) and build the printers..on Wednesday they put me over there to learn how to put them together.

What if the hokey pokey is what its all about?
