I found out today when I go for the MRI and MRA, the 12th @ 10:15. My heads still hurting every day. Still having to take meds to get rid of them.

We have sold 2 puppies so far. One little girl left, I hope she’s gone before the kids get home. Dd is getting a little to close for my comfort.

My bff had 2 dr. appointments in the “big city” an hour away. In between them we did a little shopping. I got ds 2 pairs of jeans and 2 shirts. Since he’s going in the 7th grade with no more recess he wants to start off in jeans… his words not mine. He starts football practice Monday afternoon. Dd already has the shirts she’s wearing the first week back to school all picked out. Lol but she’s not ready to go back yet.

The kids left this morning with the inlaws. They will be home Sunday. This will be the longest they have been gone. Today wasn’t bad but the house sure wasn’t the same when we came in at dark. Dh took a few days off. He went to bed after eating and here I am on the puter. What will we do when the kids grow up and move out?! We are going to do something either tomorrow night or Sat. night. not sure what yet. Well I need to finish laundry and hit the sack.

I have been weighed down lately by things. I know I need to stop laying around and do something about those things. That’s easier to say than do tho. This was my first Christmas without her and it sucks. I haven’t been enjoying life or my kids. When I get like this all I do is sleep. Then after the house is quiet I stay up thinking. Dh gets annoyed with me for sleeping all the time but then tells me I shouldn’t have any reason to be depressed. So I keep all of this to myself which I know isn’t a good thing. I have learned that there’s a plan for me but this can’t be it. I have to be able to enjoy things.

I have been thinking alot about a letter I read on Helen’s blog, she wrote it to herself at 18. I don’t have a age to write about just my life.

Dear Brandy,

You were born to 2 young people who didn’t know what to do with you. At 3 you will be giving a better life, try to remember this later down the road. After you turn 5 and your mom calls don’t worry about pleasing her stay with your grandparents. When you are 8 don’t let their drinking bother you, it isn’t your fault.

That July when you are 10 and your mom calls and says it’s ok for you not to go see Papaw, know that it isn’t your fault he’s gone. He was so sick and it was his time to go. Also the man she’s now seeing will be in your life a long time, learn to trust him. He will do anything for you and your future kids.

7th grade will bring the guy you think loves only you, wrong! The next 3 years will be mostly hell, but you will come out stronger than you think is possible. During this time you will do lots of things you will not be proud of later but remember these things will help you be a better person.

During the 9th grade you will meet someone new and he will be good to you. Again you will do things you won’t be proud of. Again they will help you later in life. Just know he’s not the one for you and you will break his heart but it’s the plan. 

What would have been your 10th grade year you will meet another guy. He’s the one but you won’t believe that at first. Things will change so much over the next year. I am proud that you get your GED, you could have let that go too. You will find out who has your back during this time, it’s better this way. At 17 you will get married and everyone will question this but don’t listen, remember he’s the one. One of the best things to ever happen comes at 18, you will find out you are going to be a mommy. Of course you are scared but everything turns out OK, he’s the best baby. Don’t think twice about coming home from the Army, they will be the last months with Didie. Treasure those memories with him. The next few years will be a test for your marriage, stay with it tho it’s all worth it. At 23 you find out your having a girl. She will be very worth all the sickness and preterm labor. She will be why you were always told “you pay for your raising”.

Try to remember tomorrow’s not promised and when Mamaw needs you to just do it. She will be gone before you are really ready. She needs to know things will be OK before she will stop fighting. You also need to know they will be. 2006 and 2007 will be hard. You do what you have to when she’s concerned.  Just don’t beat yourself up about not being there June 10th. You have lots of battles coming your way but know you have the Lord with you so chin up.

Helen has tagged me. So here are eight random facts.

1. I am trying to learn to forgive people from my past. Most of these people have no idea they need forgiveness tho.

2. I H A T E ironing. My mother in law comes over to iron clothes for me. But I have ironed dd’s “puppy’s” dress the last two Sundays for church.

3. I buy In Touch every week. I can’t walk by a new one and not grab it.

4. I am addicted to washing clothes. My dh hates it b/c we are on a septic system and all the water stays in the front yard.

5. I have learned that I don’t mind cooking if we can all sit down together as a family to eat.

6. I like being team mom.

7. When dh is on the road I have to sleep on his pillow or I don’t sleep well.

8. I don’t mind going to the dentist. Most people think I am nuts when I say that.

I am now passing this on to Jen, Danielle, Steph, Patty, Megan, and You. ;P

P.S. I don’t know how to link names. 🙂

Fast Cars and Freedom..

is a song by Rascal Flatts. My hubby says it reminds him of us. It seemed fitting for this post.

About a week ago my friend Helen posted about your top 10 High School Memories. Here are mine..

1. My first French kiss, I was in the 7th grade. I thought I was so grown.

2. A place called Teens N Dreams opening and me hanging out there most Fridays. Oh to be 13 again.

3. Skipping school the first time. It was the last day of school my 7th grade year. Yes I also got caught.

4. Making the Pep Squad my 8th grade year. Then quitting b/c it sucked. I was so not a rah rah girl but I hope my daughter makes it if that’s what she’s wants to do.

5. Going to the Country Club swimming pool everyday of the summer. We mostly played ping-pong or lay out. Not really a school memory but it was back during that time. The kids and I have been going to this same pool for years now.

6. Losing my virginity way too early. Something I regret now. Not something I hope my kids do that young.

7. Kathy coming from Texas to live with her dad. Us becoming best friends and never seeing one without the other. We also started smoking and drinking when she came to town. The first night I spent with her, we were late getting home and walked in to her step mom waiting up for us. I got so sick and throw up Strawberry Hill lol. The next morning we got woke up extra early to go to the flea market b/c they weren’t as stupid as we had thought.

8. Hanging out up town on the weekends. Kathy and I would catch a ride with my best guy friend Jon. Just thinking about it takes me back to Sonic lol. It’s funny running into people from those days. One guy from up town now lives in the same area I do and our girls are in the same class.

9. Skipping school way too much my 10th grade year. Leading to me dropping out and getting my GED. Something else I hope my kids don’t want to do.

10. Meeting my high school sweetheart. He was a senior and we have been married almost 13 years.
