My Moms spirit keeps me going, Im not religious but I know she wanted a good life 4me...as your Mom prolly would just my 2 cents...and years of analysis, lol

Yesterday, I said something needed to be done with the pull-out, that it was listing to the left and doing funny things. Yeh, yeh. Of course, we can't do it on anyone else's schedule. It has to be when teh Muse strikes. Well, this morning, I came in to look something up, pulled out the chair and the shelf fell down from the left and hung at a 90 degree angle. So I went out and told him. You know what his response was? "Well, you know..... we need a new computer." Huh???? There is absolutely nothing wrong with the darned computer! Yes, there are issues but I don't think we need to go spend lots of $$ on a new one when I'm sure it's just something weird that's going on that can be fixed. NOt a word about the desk. I think we're coming up on a hubby auction real soon here.
Get some duct-tape for that computer desk! it will drive hubby nuts seeing it every day until he fixes correctly. Lol Put duct-tape all over the thing just to make him upset.

We talk once in awhile on FB, (the family has it's own page).
I understand that they don't know me that well since the split up, but some of the responses I get(which is few) (even from cousins) makes me feel that they'd rather go on with life without me. And(seriously) the way things are going, it looks like they'll be gettin' their way.
Lost my Mom in 80's-my brother took off and went to med school- (I only have 1 sibling, him, unfortunately)..Then dad got sick years later, I was caretaker. ONCE in a whole yr did prodigal brother come to visit Dad in hospital/nursing home.

Now he doesnt even return emails, I have never asked him for a penny, he is a millionaire and last time I called just to say hi he was rude and condescending. C'est la Vie...I am done wanting or needing approval from him. He also has a baby daughter I have never met...

Explaining to a young employee why you only get paid time (8 hours) and not mileage when you are driving a company vehicle for the umpteenth time. Explaining to my boss that we have to pay him for his time travelling (8 hours)..listening to both of them

Inconsiderate adult children.

Last Friday, a young woman from the neighboring town went missing. Her cell phone was found on the road/bridge that runs thru our farm.

Tuesday, at dawn, the police conducted a search starting at the bridge and working out from there. 3 jurisdictions of police, search dogs and an airplane. Very thorough and very professional.

Her parents had been here since before dawn. As the day progressed, the stress on the mother really started to show. I sat and talked with her a couple times during the search. Lovely woman.

The police found the missing woman last night, alive and well in Kansas.

WTF? Kansas doesn't have phones? She couldn't call home and let them know she was ok? Collect calls do still exist....

Why is it the kids have so little patients when it comes to bearing with me about the computer, but expect me to be patient with them when it comes to them spending my money... LOL They don't mind bothering me to do what they need done so they really shouldn't mind putting up with me. I mean fair exchange is no robbery. Who is going to love me when I get old
