Rambling Stories

  • Just an observation...

    Wednesday, June 30, 2010 | A Rambling story

    Ever notice that the more invested a person is in something, the tighter they hold onto it? Whether it's a belief, and idea, a point of view... even if it's completely wrong, makes no sense, is totally crazy?
    I think this has a lot to do with why people remain in bad, or even abusive relationships. They've invested their time, their energy, their heart. They can't let go of the investment.

    Today is Monday. I have spent my day dealing with issues and crisis's. My son's fiance' blew a job interview because she didn't prepare like I told her to and then called me in panic mode because she wasn't going to get there in time, wasn't dressed right, didn't follow my directions, etc. She admitted that perhaps she should have prepared better. Ya think??? They agreed to interview her on Wedne...

  • First journal post!

    Monday, June 3, 2013 | A Rambling story

    Hello! First journal entry. Today I am feeing pretty good, and it has been a pretty positive day. Sometimes I hate going to sleep because alot of my dreams are very negative and leave me feeling pretty sucky the next morning.  Alot of mornings I wake up and feel kinda hopeless, but as the day goes on this feeling usually fades.  However, it sucks to wake up like this, because the mornin...

  • Saturday Night Special

    Saturday, November 9, 2013 | A Rambling story

    Well, it's another exciting night around the homestead.  My son and dog are in a competition for attention.  When we first discussed bringing a dog into our family, he was going to be my son's pet primarily due to the fact that my son wanted a more interactive pet than BooBoo the bunny.  It's been 3 months and the dog sleeps in my bed and follows me around the house. He will go to ...

  • Another wonderful day

    Monday, December 9, 2013 | A Rambling story

    Getting so tired of things.... Seems like every time I turn around there is always something that comes up or happens that requires me to shell out money I don't have. I have been trying to keep my head up but this is getting to me bad now. I have been dealing with this for over a year now with no income. This year it is affecting my Daughter's Christmas. 
    I wish the damn federal government ...

  • The plus and Minus of it all

    Wednesday, March 5, 2014 | A Rambling story

    I am glad this cold weather is almost over.
    I placed all of my plants and fruit trees into the large greenhouse and one night it came a big wind and I didn't know that it had blown one of the panels on the top of the greenhouse away and then it dipped below freezing that same night and killed most of my stuff.
    I would say I am lucky if I have 1-5% of my original plants and trees left.
    I think the...
