Thursday is a good day!



Well now it is closer to the end of the week. I am going to be in and out today. I have to do a little driving today. I really don't mind. It means I get and extra 30 minute break. I have so much murk here to do. I neglected my job for 5 weeks and now I have to play catch up. Lucky me. I only have a couple more these pictures so I figure I would use them before I freak out too many people. I myself get a little freaked. I am really a big baby. Lots of silly fears. Sometimes my kids are braver than I.

Mom,
I read your comment from yesterday and you are so right. They usually are angels for other people. I don't think that includes family members though. My mom has cancelled taking them places because of the attitude. She was taking them to the movies but she had to get gas first. She told them to behave while she was doing that and all they did was fight so needless to say they didn't go to the movies. Any one elses kids like that?

My children are grown but they used to fight all the time-there is a 6 year difference and my daughter used to whine in the car because her older brother would make faces at her-"he's looking at me" and no matter how much we told her to look the other way, it didn't help. Now we tease them both about it. (they are 38 & 32)You will get through this but I know it isn't easy. Children usually don't listen to reason. Your site is a great place to express these feelings though. Hugs to you.

they do eventually grow out of it. my middle daughter used to bring home report cards that said she was just a wonderful student and always so well behaved and listened to the teacher so well. get my drift? well, we used to look at her and ask her who was going to school in her place, or who are you and what did you do with our child? LOL

I am sitting on the edge of my chair --because there is a Meepsie asleep in it, and she WON'T MOVE!! Such a big help.

I'm a St. Bernard!!

I'll have to go wish Oreo a Happy Purrthday! His party was one happenin' thing! We had fun visiting, and his Mom is a NASCAR nut like me!

My mother used to ask who's kid was going to school and to my friends' houses--sweet, polite, helpful--and a little s**t at home!

Danielle, I still want to know where yesterday's picture came from.

Purrs and huggles to all

I love pictures like these, although I know some people do fake them. I like the program Ghost Hunters because they take a very realistic and scientific approach and try to find some other explanation first. The other shows seem to be sensationalist garbage. I have some of my own ghost stories. It's all really interesting.

I want to hear all about them. I love being scared.

Okay - one at a time. When my oldest daughter, Amanda, was in kindergarten, I was giving her the "safety" talk. She listened politely, but told me I had nothing to worry about because "the nice man" always watched out for her and made sure she was safe. She told me he wasn't "alive" like we are, but that she could see him and feel him with her. I asked her to describe him and she gave me a perfect description of my grandfather, who passed away when she was a baby. My small family is scattered and we don't see each other much. Amanda had never even heard anyone talk about my grandfather before this time. She only knew him as "the nice man who watched out for her". The older she got, and the more she was able to take care of herself, the less she felt him around, but I bet he's still watching.

My grandmother was living in New York and my sister was in San Francisco. My grandmother had been sick on and off (she was a smoker), but didn't tell anyone how serious it was. Early one morning my sister was awakened by someone sitting at the foot of her bed. It was our grandmother. She told my sister that it was her time to go and she wanted to say good-bye. The words weren't spoken - my sister says she heard them in her head. My sister told her that she understood and loved her and my grandmother faded away. A short time later, my mother received the phone call that her mom had just passed. She called to tell my sister who said, "I know, she was just here".

Darn - I was trying to tell you the one about my house now, but Internet Explorer dumped me unexpectedly. I'll try again later, if you want.

I love these. Keep telling. That's really sad about your grandmother though.

At least she got to say good-bye in person...well, kind of. My other grandfather (not the one Amanda "knew"), lived in New York also and died very suddenly two years ago. We were all especially upset because we hadn't spoken to him in a little while. He didn't call because he was leary of the evils of "long distance charges", and I had tried to call him 2 days prior to his death, but he didn't answer (and had no answering machine). I had just made him a set of pictures of my sister's baby and was just about to send them too. After his sudden passing, I was praying and telling him I was sorry I hadn't gotten the pictures out in time and sorry I hadn't gotten to talk to him on the phone when I called and sorry that I wasn't in touch as much as I wished I was. During his life, he was well known in his small town for growing excellent strawberries and giving them to everyone. He was very proud of his strawberries. While I was praying and talking to him, I asked him to send me a sign if he had heard me. For the next several days, I was overwhelmed by random strawberry references. Catalogs and magazines showed up in the mail with pictures of strawberries on the cover. People would make unexpected comments about strawberries. I went shopping for a present for my niece and my kids pointed out toys and dolls with strawberries on them (I hadn't mentioned the strawberry thing to them prior). Every time I turned around for about 4 days, I was confronted with strawberry references. I think I got my answer - he heard.

I will now stop before you all think I'm nutty. Besides, the others are really hard to shorten.
