It’s Time…

To catch everyone up with the last 4 months… But where to start?

The Good: The baby shower was great… I won’t be doin’ another! Too much stress!! And just after Christmas our family was blessed with a beautiful baby girl. She is the spittin’ image of her daddy, my nephew. I wish they didn’t live so far away, so I could spoil her like I did her daddy.

The Bad: My grandpa died unexpectedly. No delicate way to say that. Just after Thanksgiving, he passed. So I’ve been goin’ back and forth from my house to my grandmother’s. She turns 90 on the 18th of April and she doesn’t get around all that well. She is unable to stay alone, so we moved my mother in with her. It helps Granny and it helps Mom… she was havin’ a shitty time with my sister in-law. And then just when we have everything going good, my mom has a seizure and spent a week in the hospital.

Geez!! I can’t catch a break… not even if I had a catcher’s mitt!!

So I saddle up and go back.

Annnnd… There is no internet!! I will have to figure out how to blog from my phone.

Most all my time is consumed with “The Ladies” and it poops me out! Mom is JUST now gettin' back normal.

There’s more stories to tell… some sad, some funny… but later.

The Ugly: The division of the assets… is not for wimps!! And the best way to put it is, my inheritance is a big fat zero!!

So I do what I know in my heart to be the right thing… take care of Granny the best way I can and fight tooth and nail to keep her from a nursing home until she goes to Glory. Then I will take my mules and go home. And never go back again.

I have sure wanted to vent about that!! But haven’t really had the time, so I cried a lot.


But oh well… I have great memories and no regrets.

Sometimes it's really hard to do the right thing, but having no regrets...priceless.

Sounds like you've had a tough couple of months, Nadine. Hang in there - you're a tough cookie, and if crying helps... then let it all out.

Happy to see you back in my reader!!
