Saturday Thoughts

Good Saturday morning, friends.  It's one of those cold, windy, cloudy days here in Alabama.  At least it's not raining...yet.  I've been a bit down and out the last few days.  Feeling sorry for myself for feeling more like a maid and less like a wife and mother.  Things are getting better, but I still do 99% of the housework around here...and hold down a full-time job.  Lately it's been more than a full-time job.  I've had to bring some things home to work on.  But, I am seeing a light way down there at the end of the tunnel. 

We headed out to Scottsboro last night.  Our football team played there, and since Justin and Chelsea live there, they invited us to eat supper with them.  It was a good time.  They cooked barbeque chicken, green beans, potatos, shells & cheese, and rice.  Chelsea is really beginning to poke out there!  It's just a little over a month now until Millie will make her appearance.  It's gonna be so great!  Justin still hasn't found a job.  He is feeling pressure from Chelsea's parents, mainly her mom.  It's a bad situation because I don't know enough about Scottsboro to even go help him look for a job there.  Around here, I know the places to go, and we have some connections here and there that could probably help.  Justin wants to live here.  He wants for them to be truly out on their own.  Instead, they live in a mobile home that her parents are paying for, behind their house.  As long as that's the case, they are going to be nose-ing their way into their business whenever it's convenient for them.  I told him that Chelsea would have to be the one to get tired of it before anything would be done about it.  I hope this situation works itself out soon.

On a positive note, our team won last night!  It was another muddy one, but they pulled it out.  The season is about to wind down. There's just a few more games to watch Chase play.  He did ask me what I thought about him playing baseball this year.  I told him that it was entirely up to him.  He used to play, and he was pretty good.  And then, back when Kevin's mom passed away, it was around the time to try out again.  He decided not to. There was just too much stuff going on.  He didn't play the following season, either.  But, I think that since this is his senior year, he has decided to give it another go.  We'll see.  If so, I'll have to get the warm clothes and portable heater ready because baseball starts in February, and it is one cold season! 

So, have a great weekend, friends.

We all have days or even weeks as this. I know I do. As mothers we have so much to hold together. Know your not alone on these gloomy days. Remembering my gifts from God always from God always make me feel amazing. Knowing one of his gifts is his love and support! Blessings

Hi Sandra! I am Sandra also. I'm going to follow you. Two Sandras should follow each other, don't you think? I feel for you and your young married son. That's a tricky spot he is in. Once he finds a job things will look up. I started to say something re her family but I should shutup! My son is looking for a job and it is darn painful to watch. It's been 6 months! I'm praying and "expecting" something good for Jeremy THIS WEEK. I'll expect it for your boy too! Take care from SITS.
