Going Insane


A picture is worth a 1000 words!!!!! So it has been said.... And this one truly describes me for the last week. That life around my parts of the woods has not been easy this last few days. Nope that my sister and her two boys have been arguing so much that I am ready to just run away!!!!

Now mind you I truly do love them all and hate it when they disagree. More so when they put me in the middle of their arguments! But it seems that every since their Dad passed away almost two years ago that the two sons and their Mom argue alot! And the sad part of it is that it 9 times out of ten is over stupid crap!

Of course I am not going into details here! let me just say it has to do with my sister and her daughter-in-law! Enough said..... The point is that life is to short to spend it fighting over things that really should not have been started out as a disagreement to begin with! Plus to put me in the middle of!

When you think about it, family and friends are all we truly have in this world. Except for the dear Lord above. That is if you do believe in him. Which I do 100%!!!!! For me I enjoy as much time as I can get with them all. Which in my opinion is not enough time! Guess you could say because of work schedules, distance away from each other, etc. So when we do get together I surely do not want it spent in ugliness!!! No sirree..... Instead I want to spend it making memories! Plus enjoying it to the fullest.....

Of course we all know there will be some disagreements and not everything will be all sugar and spice. :-) But we can hope it will be! And who knows 9 times out of 10 it is. You could say that I am one who just wants us all to get along. Could i be asking for way to much???? Naw, don't think so. Yet, certain ones think I am. Well, in my house it is play by my rules, or just don't bother coming by. Cause I hate stress! Lord knows these past few years I have had more than my share!!!!!! Yet, somehow I have survived it! Maybe it is because I am meant to! ROFL

Whatever the reason may be, I just know that I have gone "Insane" this past week! So therefore I am going to take some much needed me time and get things back to normal! Even if I have to become a you know what in order to do it! (YIKES) So say a prayer that it does not come to that.

In closing I did get me a new camera!!!! YEAHHHHH So now I can begin taking pictures again. I truly did not realized how much I missed it. First though I got to read all of the instructions that came with it. UGH... This is not my favorite part. It must be done, so I know what I am doing! Wish me luck and look out.

Till my next posting (which I will try to keep up to date with) know you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings to all. Now I am off to locate my mind! HeeHee

Hang in there! Get plenty of me time and hopefully you can survive the dicey family waters.

Ohhh good ole family stuff! sometimes you just want to smak em!

Your like me--I dont like reading directions! I got my new camera probably 5 months or so ago and still have not read them. Thats probably why my pictures are no where near as nice as they could be. I keep telling baldyman to read the stuff and then just show me how to use it. so far he hasnt either.

I'm glad to hear that you got yourself a new camera. I just got one last summer. This is my first digital camera. My hubby got me one when I started this blogging thing. I'm sorry to hear about your family's arguing. The only thing that I could suggest, is to stay neutral. Only becuase you said that you were being put in the middle. My parents were divorced. I'm not saying that divorce is an issue with what your speaking of but all you can hope for is that the family stays intact. That is so important that families stay and stick together. And all married folks should be supported by the families around them to help and protect that family. I hope it all works out and I said a little prayer for you and your loved ones.
I hope I didn't step over any bounderies here. But like a said, my parents were divorced and it completely destroyed my family.

Life always has ups and downs, and every down is followed by an up. By the way, you don't have to go looking for your mind. It will return of its own accord when it gets hungry :-)

Oh by the way I forgot to mention that I just LOVE that cute Koala bear that you have dancing in your sidebar, how cute! =)
