Hope the next week is a better one for all of us. I don't remember when I've had anything upset me so much for so long. I was supposed to pick up my grandson Wednesday after his after school class and forgot him completely. His mom called at 3:45 and asked if I had picked him up and I hadn't even thought about it. Of course, it was dh's fault(NOT) - he played golf on the wrong day and added to my already confused state of mind. So much has happened in the last week or so it has left me quite puzzled. My next door neighbor died last week, then the thing with my car being booted, then forgetting my grandson. I may throw myself in a corner til a new week starts.

Oh licia, you HAVE had a week haven't you! The great thing is...the week is OVER. You get to start fresh now. Sit down, have a nice cup of tea and a cookie and hopefully you will start to relax.

Gee, thanks. I AM glad the week is over. I am definitely not making any plans except to take it easy the next two days. Maybe everything will work out by then.

licia,
I know exactly how you feel, have a cup of tea as Alix said, and with it a good bawl, then wipe those tears and look in the mirror and say hi licia, you've been a good mom and grandma for years, this goofy week doesn't count and I'm still tops and my family thinks I'm the best and I am Then just march into next week with head held hi and forget this mess...You deserve the best, you're a mom and a Ma...
hugs licia from me to you

Mish, you could never overstep with me.. I know you care..We've tried often to get mom interested in thing outside the home,since dad passed away, but, she won't budge. We live out in the country so a bus isn't an option for her...Even if I could get her to go out, I know she wouldn't know where or what to do..Her life was me, my sis, and most of all my dad...So I try to take her shopping, to the mall..We've taken her to several movies, she likes that but falls asleep during them, but so what, she likesit we take her...We took her out for dinner tonight and, her daughter, (me) kept her yap shut, let her order for herself and never said peep about anything. We all DH, son, mom and ME Just relaxed and laughed about all kinds of nutty things...It was nice..She went home humming tonight..Now, I must see to it that she does that often...
thanks for caring Mish..it helps.

Today, I went to work out in the forest and it should have been a great day. First I drove down the wrong road and had to back up for forever because there was not a turnaround at the end. I dropped my coworker at one end of the project and I drove to the other end to start reflagging the boundary. All timber sales are flagged with orange plastic tags and blue plastic flagging. This sale had been tagged 5 years ago and needed refreshing. It was so cold today that the flagging kept breaking. My hands were freezing. I took the harder section, so my coworker got done before me. She was supposed to drive the truck down to where I was to end and pick me up. She did not understand my instructions and went the wrong way. I ran out of flagging. (I took 3 rolls of flagging.) I twisted my ankle while just walking down the road. The boundary was posted wrong and I had to fix someone else's mistake. I missed lunch and was starving when I got done and I forgot to take a snack.

Thanks for the chance to vent. I hope that you all have a good day.
