I would never condone this rash, irresponsible behavior. It is an equally reasonable assumption that I may never know the pleasures of seeing my grandchildren, if there are grandchildren. At 45 years old my life is sprinkled with broken relationships. I remember the days when we didn't have cell phones. I truly am facing the reality of the broken relationships in my life, if you have read any of my you can see and feel that process. The two are connected though.
Taking an inventory of my time and tasks need to's and want to's helped me make this necessary shift mentally and emotionally. Like enter your room on all fours or pull a friend over on the floor and jump over them or run to the risers and jump off of the back. Outside of family, I have had many conversations with different friends and in typical female tribe custom, we share our highs and lows and those emotions also found their way into my heart. I started to question my behavior. As for being a preacher? As of 2018, the number is still climbing and is the highest number ever, the 7th leading cause of death in males and the 14th in females.
The brake pedal felt like a deflating balloon as it went all the way down. Cheering loudly for their team but realizing it was a game and not a matter of life or death. I desire to be a trusted friend who does not share others' intimate details or struggles. Safer in the glow of the screen with the click of the keys. I thought I was a victim. I added this meat mixture to a naan and topped it with some delicious grape tomatoes. Thinking these were real, deep connections.
I have always wanted to be part of a book club and just happened to find one nearby that just happened to be starting up a book that was already on my list to read! Turn this around into an opportunity of self care! She suggested using a mason jar because then you can simply store the mayo right in the jar that you make it in. Even still — jumping in, taking that leap of faith has been so good for me and for my girls to see! My 6-year old was watching cartoons, my 12-year who primarily lives with her father was Netflix bingeing on her iPhone, and my 13-year old was sequestered in his bedroom, gaming on Fortnight on his Playstation 4 with his buddies, howling and pounding his remote control at regular intervals. Even in a big area like the greater Tampa area the world becomes small as your circles all intersect somehow. I am also taking care of a parent who is 84 and in terrible shape. If you eat well, your body will want to drop the weight! If this were 10 years ago my skin would be crawling and I would be having a major mommy melt down and honestly several weeks ago, while spinning my wheels, I kind of was. Especially with people who are being genuine. Still, the mature content feels organic and authentic rather than gratuitous or contrived.
Dried basil is good in a pinch, but nothing really compares to fresh. My life is good, I have a roof over my head, a loving husband and beautiful children. This is yours and yours alone. They are also explaining why they have never reported their experience. And now, every day for the past 15 days i push the fear away. I am pondering what it means to be an older mother.
Everything else took a back seat. Regardless, the words can and will be credited to you, the original source. Think about how you will feel about retiring together. In as little as 21 days!! Now it was time to prepare everything. Hours worth of amusement is right in front of you.
One comes and goes and one only goes - never to return. And all three of them could sing. Now we are saying goodbye to adult kids or fighting with a teenager over keys to the car. If you were out you were out and someone had to catch you at home if they wanted to talk to you on the phone. They are your parents and will need you. I have been guilty of doing this and also a recipient of being overlooked and forgotten.
I want to write about what is real, about how that realness affects people and what we can do to make things better. I have not exercised although that is changing… more on that in a bit and this has been due strictly to a change in diet. Yes, Diet Coke goes with everything. If I feel this way how many of you feel this way? By nature, I am a very system happy person. We make the toys for the elves. Photo courtesy of Tribeca Film.
I have one more thing to say on the subject. They host hashtag parties, linkys and facebook groups. I use my bullet journal for any projects I am working on — such as a party I am planning, vacation planning, Christmas gift buying, home improvement etc… I just start a page, label it at the top and make my plan or list of things to buy. Social media, the very thing we tell our children to be wary of and as parents we try to monitor with a close eye. I opted to use the grater attachment and just push the florets down the chute.
