Today is Tuesday, March 23, 2013. Well it is COLD again this morning. Got the kerosene heater going to warm up the house. It is supposed to be another cold one for two more nights. Lovely....I say if it is going to get into the low thirties, then we should have snow.
I went to our local fabric store yesterday, they are having a sale, and just had to add to my stash. I love them all and today will be the day I will spend making things for the RV. The RV is going to become George and I's second home very soon. I am so excited to start thinking of the things that he and I will be able to do as a couple.
Don't get me wrong, I love everyone of my children, I might not like them at times or what they are doing, however I still love them. We raise them to become happy, productive, self supporting adults. They have their own lives now and that is awesome, however they also need to realize that their father and I also are going to have "our" own lives. If you didn't bother to call before coming over and we aren't home, I am not going to apologize for not leaving a note on my door or texting all of you that we were not going to be home. I love spending time with the grand kids, but I don't want to "baby sit" I am Nana not the emergency or on call sitter. My mom never baby sat and I would have never even asked her to, she was grandma. When your dad and I are away, please don't call dad to see if he can help you to fix your vehicle, this is "our" time. I am sure that you have your friends or the shop up the road that can help you out.
Thinking back on all of the things that George and I didn't do because of things that needed to be done for the kids or places that the kids had to be, there is a lot of catching up of things that we need to do. Keeping my fingers crossed that next weekend he and I will be heading to the Gulf for some crabbing and fishing. He has to do something to the water pump I think is what he said so depending on what is happening with that will depend on if we go or not. I couldn't tell you the last time he and I went fishing and that is truly sad.
We as parents have to learn to take care of ourselves and our spouse, the one that we choose to share our lives with and grow old together with. The children will be fine, we were, and I do believe it made us stronger not to have our problems "fixed" by our parents. We were taught to stand on our own two feet and we did.
