Day 187-193

Day 187 was Wednesday, July 4. We spent the evening with my sister and her family at the campground just as we did last year. They had a cookout. I got a bit irritated at some of the families behavior so we left early and went to town to listen to Percy Sledge sing and watch the fireworks. Michael the boys and I lay in the grass and watched a beautiful show. I don't really remember the food. It was crap I'm sure. It's been crap for days.

Day 188, Thursday, I have no clue what we did. LOL. But I do know it was my Daddy's birthday. Happy Birthday Dad! He turned 70!

Day 189, Friday, we spent most of the day at my ILs house. Michael took the truck down so his Dad could help him work on the brakes. $50 and they are finally lined back out. I could list 25 more things wrong with the truck, but no need in that.

Day 190 was Saturday. We didn't do a whole lot. Mainly hung out here around the house. Took the boys to ride their bikes. Dalton was finally brave enough to let  us take his training wheels off. He was like an ol' pro from the get go.

Day 191, Sunday. We went to Moms for dinner, spent most of the day there with the family. I went through some stuff in my old closet. Looked through old Barbies, Smurfs, and Care Bears. I even found my original NES game system. We brought it home, hooked it up, and it still works! Later, Bai and Ds new puppy got really sick. We took it in from a very bad situation thinking the little thing couldn't cost us that much to feed. It was a mini chihuahua mixed with min pin. It was as cute as could be. Sadly we obviously didn't get it in time. I was up with it all night Sunday night and it passed away a few hours before the vet opened on Monday morning. I cried and prayed all night. The care it received before we took it was very poor and it just wasn't meant to be.

Day 192, Monday, I didn't do much. Mainly sat around the house reading the last book in the 50 Shades of Grey series. Pure smut! Horrible editing, but not a complete waste of time. I took a nap mid day because I didn't sleep at all the night before. Still a nap wasn't enough to make me chipper. I was pretty much a walking zombie and went to bed early.

Day 193, Tuesday, Today... well.. it's been pure crap too. Michael and I are butting heads over homeschooling the boys. I don't want to go into all the details, but he says let them do what they want and I don't see it that way at all.

I'm praying for tomorrow to be a better day. I'm fed up right now. Tired, grouchy, hormonal, and aggravated. I want to bang my head on the desk. Well, if that would do any good.


  1. I hope today is a better day. Dealing with family in general is a pain in the a$$ and I don't know about it they all make me want to eat because I don't want to deal with them so I misbehave on my diet. Things will get better just give it time to pass.

  2. Sorry to hear about the puppy :( Must be so sad for the boys.
    It sounds like things are really frustrating and hectic at the moment for you. I hope they ease up soon!! xx
