Good Morning

                   

    I am sitting by the window and can hear the wind just blowing away.  The yard is full of yellow leaves and soon the trees will be bare.  Yesterday the yard was full of Robins, stopping by on their long flight to where they winter.  Where is that?   The first Robin of spring is always such a welcome site, is it as welcome where they go for the winter?

   Rick's bike is still not fixed as the part hasn't come in yet so I think I will put my planters to bed for the year and maybe gets some bulbs and plant them.  Of course my house could always use cleaning but I tend to wait until the last minute to get that fixed up.

   A friend of mine also wants me to help her husband learn how to sell on ebay.  He is battling cancer and we hope beating it.  Since his wonderful job fired him when he got ill he is home and bored silly so I also might to that today if they are up to it.  He is the neatest man so it should be fun, his sense of humor is wicked and funny.

   I have to apologize for the other post.  I rarely rarely swear and would never say that normally.  I admit to being hurt when I saw that.  Of course my sister doesn't know I occasionally read her blog.  I don't very often but check in to make sure she is OK as she is ill.  I don't talk to her anymore as I always think we have a great conversation and then find out somehow I have come across wrong.  Makes it hard to talk worrying all the time what to say.  Never look for hidden meanings in what I say because I usually just say exactly what I mean.  She analyzes my conversations looking for hidden hurts.  I don't want to hurt her so it is better we don't talk.  I do miss my lovely nieces though and am happy my brother sends me pictures and keeps me up to date.

  Tomorrow it is suppose to be in the 80's and hopefully Ricks bike will be fixed.  A ride would be nice.  I also am thinking about the gym again now that the weather is getting cooler.  Time to work on my sagging muscles again.  Of course if I have surgery that will put a damper on that.  Looking for some good ideas for supper tonight, any ideas.  Joyce, what are you cooking?

Like I have said before, and will say again.. "You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family."  Sometimes, as sad as it may be, just because God gave us a sibling, does not mean that we will get along in this life.  Sometimes it's better to step back, away from someone, then to continue in their life, or them in yours, when all that happens is constant hurt and pain.  Doesn't mean that you don't love them.  You can love someone, but sometimes, you just can't be around them, or live with them.  Fact of life. Right?

Hugs

I think families tyically go through their "ups and downs."  Right now, I am having issues with one of my sisters too.  She is making some life altering decisions that affect her entire family (she is married and has 2 girls, ages 6 and 12) and I personally think she is acting against every single thing I believe in.  Downright immoral.  But, she is my sister.  I don't tell her off or fight about it or yell about it or get all self righteous with her...I basically ignore her.  We engage in "small talk" when necessary but that is about it.  If I had a CHOICE, I would not be friends with her.  But, she's family.


Now, why your sister would call you such names, I have no idea!  I find youto be a perfectly kind, pleasant, considerate, caring woman.  Guess she just hasn't figured that out yet!! (lol)

((hugs))

Very sorry Julie....people look for hidden lingo often because they need a spotlight on them...they neeed to matter more....their attention needs to matter...compassion for them needs to matter....its usually a deep subconscious pull or fight to be understood too...but unfortunately, when they fight by picking at what you say, their drama matters and you dont....very very sorry.....its very hard....
