Brain Dump

Posted 03-30-2011 at 08:29 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I have written a few times in not to distant past about wanting to open and run my own Christmas store, I am realizing that the dream of doing that is probably a little farther away than I was anticipating.
We are having a little trouble with one of my wife's student loans, and the amount they want us to pay per month is just not feasible with other bills and such at this time. We have been trying to work with them, but they just don't want to help us out right now. My wife and I earn a very nice income combined, but between bills, daycare, mortgage, and thankfully only one car payment, the 6 months of oil which has gone up like 400% since we first moved in together. Our salaries have not gone up that much, and I assume most people have not either. The stress of everyday life and squeaking by is tough enough and now add this, we are honest hard working people who have earned everything we own, and sometimes you see people who will not help themselves, get hand outs to give them...

A Dream Of A Dream

Posted 03-28-2011 at 03:44 PM by caninemom3

Sleep deprivation and exhaustion can play funny and quirky tricks on us. They can make us not only tired but sometimes I think bring us to the point of hallucinating if we are tired enough.

Since starting midnight shift for my new job in February I have not slept very well except on my evenings of Friday and Saturday both of which I am off. Then I REALLY sleep. The sleep of exhaustion replete with snoring and (eweeee !!) drooling, the whole nine yards. At least I do manage to get "caught up" somehow on the rest I need.

Today started like so many Mondays. This morning at 7:30 when I finished working, I got a bite of breakfast and then went to bed. The only thing missing was the thing I needed most, sleep. I tried to just relax, tried counting polar bears as one member of MMC member suggested I do (Thanks Track !!) but nothing. Not even drowsy. I got up, I laid back down, I got up, I laid back down. I became even more heavy with exhaustion than before....

A Child's Angel

[B]For you Susy, Always My Angel and Friend As Well As my Mom xoxo[/B]

A CHILD'S ANGEL


Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born. So one day she asked
God:


They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow but how am I going to live
there being so small and helpless?


Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and
will take care of you.


But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and smile,
that's enough for me to be happy.


Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. And you
will feel your angel's love and be happy.


And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me, if I
don't know the language that men talk?


Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever
hear,...

Anniversaries

Posted 03-18-2011 at 10:39 AM by Mumof2

When I was around 12 or so My Father told me "one day Baby,a man will come along and break your heart".This was a direct reaction from my older sister's seperation and adventual divorce.Then he added like every Father Would,Me and your Brothers will break his knee caps.Breaking of the knees is a recurring theme in Boston,its better then cement shoes I guess.
My Father's "Anniversary" is coming up.10 years he'll be gone for.It's also my Father In Laws Birthday.Yes,You heard right.It's a weird thing.Happy Birthday Mr.Marco! I miss you Daddy.In some way I can see my Father giggling about it.not that he was mean,just a big jokester.Kinda like never forget me.like I could.Most of my blogs are about my dad,he was unique.I know everyone is,but unlike my friends fathers my dad stood out.He never went beyond the 5th grade,yet could come up with an invention in no time.needed a math problem? no problem for him he was a human calculator,spelling problems? goto him.He was...

Glory Days..

Posted 03-16-2011 at 07:14 AM by gabulldawg

First of all,this is coming from an uber medicated,fever ridden individual with ramblings going on my head constantly,just keep that in mind.

I often have dreams of being back in high school during my senior year glory days, and it is like I am still hanging around the same people and same situations and I even still look 17. Those were the days of sneaking out and staying up all night,or going to the beach for the weekend,no worries at all.All I worried about was myself and how I looked on the outside.
When I entered my early 20's I enlisted in the Military and for the first 3 years worried constantly I would fail and get kicked out,I always heard from old friends who would joke about me even serving and thinking I would not last,looking back it makes me very angry and I wonder if that later made me try even harder to succeed. I question constantly if I have taken the right path in everything I have done in the last 18 years since high school has ended. And I wonder...
