to all of you Lovely Ladies Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts I felt them Everything went very smoothly at the Dentist Office It was a new Dentist asian female who was so nice and so kind and yielded to my wishes to just deal with the immediate dental problem So I had two teeth extracted to the tune of 492 00 Praise The Lord that I had a 200 00 OFF coupon that this New Dental Office had sent to all the Local Residents That was a huge blessing because I have No Dental or Vision Coverage So now I am also on antibiotics to clear up the infection So for now more dental work and any other Dr appointments will be put on hold until after my Heart Procedure It was like I woke up this morning and I just knew what I had to do to not feel so overwhelmed getting easily overwhelmed stressed is part of Fibromyalgia The Holy Spirit just gave me complete Peace So thanks again girls My middle son is at it once again He said he hates me because I won t quit talking to his ex girlfriend He called me three times cussed me out told me I had to choose between the two of them which I refused to do I refuse to be emotionally black mailed by my own son so he hung up on me Text messaged me and told me he hated me and will never talk to me again I finally had to turn off my phone Here I am on pain med s with a swollen throbbing mouth and an out of control 32 year old screaming profanities at me over the phone and on text Now I know why some species eat their young lol It would be funny if it wasn t so pathetic I divorced my son s dad 26 years ago because he controlled my life for 8 years and I promised myself that would never happen to me again So I will not play that game even with my son who I dearly love Please pray for him I think he was drinking and his words and anger were coming from the alcohol Again just like his dad was It is hard for me NOT to transfer my feelings against my ex to my son when he acts the very same way Well I am going to bed and taking a cup of tea and my book with me Sorry for my discouraging posts the last few times but thanks for letting me vent and give me your broad shoulders to cry and whine on Hugs and Blessings

similar situation a year ago and did the same thing got extractions I m hoping I ll be able to save up the 2000 for implants my portion after insurance I ve got some bad cavities myself and hate going in but need to before I end up in a similar situation again I also agree that you shouldn t let your son dictate who you can be friends with Its not like you re inviting her over while he s there and trying to get them back together I hope your infection clears up quickly and you ll be able to get this heart stuff out of the way so you ll be back in prime form Curl up with a book or some stitchwork and a cup of tea relax and take care of yourself Farmgirl Sister 2363 http twilightburrough blogspot com Warren MI Cherime True Blue Farmgirl 1222 Posts Cherime Wasilla Alaska USA 1222

HealingTouch True Blue Farmgirl 1137 Posts Darlene Kunkletown Pa USA 1137 Posts Posted Jan 26 2011 09 08 38 AM Peggy Poor GF Hope you are feeling better Just deal with it one day at a time Clear up the infection so you can get the Ablation done Make sure your surgeon is aware Call them now to tell them the situation in case they want to reschedule change antibiotics or go as planned The son situation is another story Get strong and don t let him manipulate you It s not easy to be in that situation There s a fine line here He wants to see where your loyalty lies It s another way to see if you care more for him than them Not fair but he is the one who always needs to be reassured of your love You may never be able to reassure him because it s always something in his mind Remember it s him not you It s a heartbreaker but you can t control how he thinks and he feels betrayed and no matter what you say or do will not be to his liking if you continue to see his ex and he knows about it So sad that the right things are so wrong to those that choose to believe they are the only right ones Like father like son seems so right on here You could divorce your ex but not your kid One day maybe he ll grow up for your sake We have all been there at some time If you have kids you have some heartache along the way You can raise all your kids the same but they all turn out differently Give it to God and I ll help pray you through it I wish I was there Screw the tea tonight we re having a wine fest on this porch tonite See you there I ve got some stuff to unload too How bought the rest of you sisters LOL It s time for a groan and moan party Be Blessed Darlene Sister 1922 God first everything else after When Satan s knocking at your door just say Jesus will you get that for me

WA USA 5247 Posts Posted Jan 26 2011 2 14 37 PM Thanks Girls for your love and support Nurse Darlene you know I can t drink alcohol after having teeth extracted so no fair having a wine fest without me LOL My middle son left me a string of text last night after I shut off my phone I shouldn t have read them this morning I hear I have won the Worst Mother Grandmother of the Year Award and it was delivered in profanity Then to top that off he called my other two sons and drug them in to this which I wasn t going to get them involved in it and he called my ex mother in love and drug her in to his tirade My other two boys are very supportive and tell me not to take his abuse and that they tried to reason with him but to no avail Today I kept thinking about that scripture in Proverbs 31 were it says her children will rise up and call her blessed I guess that depends on what children were talking about I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic last night so I have to head over and get a new prescription I am so drug sensitive I shouldn t have had that entire new prescription filled last night as I just wasted the money I called my regular Dr today and found out what they had on record that I could tolerate and then called that in to my Dentists office I am not in pain today at all other than heart pain from my son But the extraction pain seems to be over with Darlene they said I would be well healed before my surgery at the Dentists office Well I am going to go get the meds and then lay down for awhile because I am mentally and physically weary Maybe back on later I

school understands that girls are coming from all over the place and the snow definitely slows us down so no late pass or demerit for me I was very lucky so tomorrow I ll have to leave earlier But

something He tires very easily and sleeps a lot so I don t know how much they will let him do My Mom is still waiting for test results on what is causing her black out spells so no more news on her at

say Hi They finally published the Missionary Murdered in Mexice article in our local paper today They seemed focused on the expensive truck which BTW was a 2008 chevy given to them by a couple of members of their family because they knew they needed a newer one with a bigger engine to climb the mountains where some of their churches were They make it sound like they squandered money on a truck themselves They didn t They were very frugal people they had to be They could even teach us about frugality and we already are pretty tight LOL The drug cartel wants and usually takes peoples trucks away from them if they are nice trucks I think they usually just shoot the owner and throw them on the side of the road Pray that the families that donated the truck to them don t beat themselves up too much over this You know as well as I do that they are going to feel like this was their fault More prayers needed I m having trouble sleeping I keep seeing Nancy s sweet face I know she s with Jesus but I can t stop shaking my head and hearing over over in my head She was just brutally cold blooded murdered Murder is not a word that you think you ll ever hear in a sentence about your own

Guatemala while they were there They were coming home from picking people up at the Airport and were followed and then attacked by masked armed men who were trying to steal their vehicle Fortunately they got away by some very fancy thinking and driving by Denny but they were very scared over that You always hear the stories but you never think it will happen to you Then there twenty year old son mysteriously dropped dead while over there It was never figured out what happened to him via the autopsy They too really had some heart wrenching experiences And Denny s wife became gravely ill and had to be sent State Side for awhile to recover IT was just one thing after another It shows that the devil doesn t want his people converted to the Lord Staci let us know how those coconut cupcakes taste They sound yummy Better yet bring some to The Porch tonight I will bring the tea if you do Bunny hope you make some headway at your moms in the cleaning area You will feel a lot better once you feel like you have some clean and orderly space to call your own And being able to get out your sewing will be Huge for you too I always loved the smell of Pinesole to me that meant clean My mothered

women of all ages that try to help each other through everything We are nonjudgemental and very supportive There s nothing in this world that one of us haven t endured somewhere along the line We all Bless each other on this cozy porch Peggy Poor GF Stress does nt help the Fibro Your son will always need that extra reassurance no matter what it is just because that s who he is You just hang in there and know YOU are loving him and we ll all pray You know God s in control so the next time he rants and raves take a deep breath and calmly tell him you are hanging up until he can talk respectfully to you Which might cause another scene but stick to it I have had to do this more than once with my daughter I d hug you but it would hurt LOL Angela Where do I start This is advice from an old lady who should have done things differently Let me say that my WHOLE life I always came last with my husband He was married before and had 2 sons that he got custody of and we raised They came first as well as his parents for whom he worked He got custody and I alone became the soul caregiver He was working hunting or whatever Their mother didn t care if she saw them so she mostly did nt For years some times When I had our son I decided I wouldn t leave I really had nowhere TO go Wrong choice I should have found somewhere Consequently I have lived a life of feeling badly about myself because of all the verbal and mental abuse I lived with I live in the country and there were times I didn t have a car I worked for a surgeon and I would assist him in the OR on his big cases One day he diabled my car so I couldn t go to work Ther s so much more that it would take a month to tell it all DO NOT become like me You should be 1st A husband leaves his mother when he takes a wife I don t advocate divorce but ai don t advocate my life either I was wrong I applaud those of you on here that got out and found a loving RESPECTFULL relationship Your hubby needs to readjust his thinking and if he won t than you readjust yours and do what you have to do If it means going home to your mother do it I do understand caring for the parents but it s easy for your hubby to want to do it when you will be doing all the work Run don t walk Your girls don t need to see their momma being treated badly by daddy or grandma Talk to social services and see if they will place her in rehab to recoup That is a huge thing for open heart recovery If she is that bad off they may place her until all the surgeries are done Good Luck you will need it Prayers sent Tealady s your Feb tea will be in the mail today Post when you get it BD sisters reminder Judy 2 2 Megan 2 4 Deb 2 8 Your BD mail is also being mailed today Post when you get it Anyone else that would like to receive BD cards gifts on

laugh even harder cos you will know exactly what he is talking about Sounds like you had a wonderful day Mom cleaned up her office somewhat But it is a start I told her I would clean out the fridge for her No complaints I m also working on her to let me clean out some storage closets I made the mistake of looking under the kitchen sink There were so many kittie bowels and a basket full of used sponges I m hoping she will let me deal with that too I think I have convinced her to have a yard sale this spring I have 3 large bins I emptied my sewing stuff out of and told her we could put the yard sale stuff in there Tomorrow we are going to visit the quilt shop in town I m hoping the owner is there I could really use a job right now I figured I have to make 100 00 a day to support myself alone I plan on selling my fabric on the internet hopefully teaching some quilt classes and trying to sell things I have made myself either in town or online I have some jewelery I want to start making too A very good friend of mine in the quilting world said it isn t the one thing you do that earns you enough money It s having lots of things all working at one time that will support you Hopefully I can start working and earn real dollars and everything else will start to fall into place later on At least I have something to work to Darlene I m so sorry you have to look back at the mistake of marriage like that I hate that so many abused women get stuck because of the money issue It really should be taught in schools for women to learn how to have that stash for just that reason Angela I hope you are listening to Darlene Your daughters don t need to see you stressed and unhealthy because of this Show them it is ok to stand up for yourself If you do go to your mom s he will get the message and hopefully solve the problem himself Well my sister is coming tomorrow Pray I can stay out of the storm and we can get along Everyone stay healthy and warm Bunny www bunnyrose com

his wife My MIL made my first marriage more than difficult Yes DH needs to know that his mother is getting good care but that care probably needs to come from someone who is not stressed to the end of her rope Find out what kind of social services are available She does not need to think that she can boss her care giver as that can lead to a lesser quality of care for her Bunny I will continue to

Really quickly to Angela I agree you should talk to both hubby and MIL Maybe you could convince her of going into a rehab facility because you can t give her proper care due to your own recent health issues Maybe phrase it in a way that implies you are concerned for her rehab and think it s the best option Maybe stretch the truth a little to facilitate a better solution Good luck sweetie and stay

12 50 PM Hello Porchies I ve been absent from the porch since before Christmas but I am finally at a point where I can sit back for a few minutes anyway and enjoy the porch Christmas at our house was great lots of food lots of gifts for the kids and nowhere to go for about 4 days in a row That s some kind of record for my family with 5 children every single week is just a battle to make it to the end of the week unscathed One of the things that kept me from visiting the porch was 6 out of 7 of us got the flu 2 weeks ago It has taken us until this past weekend to completely recover Only one doctor visit though Abby got an ear infection as a result so I had to take her My stepson who is disabled is the only one who did not get it we pretty much quarantined him from the rest of us Respiratory bugs are especially dangerous for him so we try to keep him in a bubble as much as possible Believe me it was incredibly stressful to be sick myself caring for 4 other sick children and trying to keep everything hospital quality sanitized to protect him was HARD WORK I m so glad it s over Next up is throwing my baby girls 5th birthday party She actually turned 5 on the 26th but the flu bug threw us completely off kilter and we never did throw her a big party We did do a small family party at home I decorated and made her a home made birthday cake blew up balloons and had a homespun birthday My youngest stepson s birhtday was the next day so we had another homespun birthday the very next night School was cancelled due to snow so it was a crazy few days there we were all still in recovery too Once the snow cleared up and the kids went back to school we had a class party for her too brought pizza and cupcakes and she got to wear the birthday crown and pin BUT the thing we do every year for all of the little ones is have a big blow out where they can invite anyone they want and we set out an assortment of games carnival style and a bounce house It s usually a big to do This time however we re going to have to wait until almost a month after her birthday before we can throw one b c my husband is out of town for the next month Yes pray for me I may just go crazy in that time Anyway at least that gives me plenty of time to plan I hope everyone is doing well I m going to spend the rest of my free time looking back at recent posts and see what s been going on with all of you Happy New Year 2011 Christine Farmgirl Sister 831 Hey it s good to be back home again Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend herblady55 True Blue Farmgirl 2799 Posts Judy Louisville Ohio Stark Co USA 2799 Posts Posted Jan 31 2011 5 40 00 PM Hello Porchies Welcome to the porch RoDonna I like your name Pretty Angela I agree with the Rehab for your MIL Sounds like the best place for her no doubt in my mind Peggy So sorry you hurt so much Girlfriend I m sure laying around hurts almost as much as trying to stay up Whenever I ve had to lay around because of back problems or illness I always tell my Mom I just had to get myself outta that bed before rigormortis sets in and Hubby tags my toe LOLOL Makes her LOL everytime Being a Nurse Hubby would do it too just for a giggle hahaha Bunny I m sure your Mom hates bugs Tell her she has created a Roach Motel there or a Bedbug Bungalow Surely that should gross her out and make her Think DH and I enjoyed a sunny but cold day today out running around I got a coupon from a steak house for a free dinner for my Birthday Although it s not for a couple of days yet we are expecting a really nasty snow ice storm tonight thru Wednesday so we took advantage of the beautiful sunshine today and just had fun We went to Goodwill and found a few Must Haves Then we went to the library and I got a few books on tape I love those I can do other things and still read a book so to speak giggle Melanie I just love Bill Cosby s humor My Sister BIL had all of his

decided to take a snowday even though they put the office on delayed start With the traffic reported to be only going 10 15mph that would take me at least 2 hours to get there one way so not worth it So I m having a lazy morning Sipped some tea while I worked on a knitted dishcloth for one of my swaps My son forgot to shut off his alarm so he woke us all up at 5 this morning grrr Of course I couldn t get back to sleep so I finally got up just before 6 to check the news reports to see if I was going to bother going in or not DF left early to make sure he was there on time since he had to open the shop today Got the dishes done and 2 loads of laundry Laid down to take a nap and as soon as I dropped off to sleep the postman knocked on the door to give me a package My son volunteered to take somebody s hours tonight without checking with me so I m going to have to venture out in this mess later today to take him to work We only got about 5 to 6 of the 12 to 18 they were predicting I m still hoping to find time to work on the baby quilt this afternoon I m going to throw a roast with carrots and potatoes into the crockpot or oven and let it simmer for supper so I won t have to worry about that later on Melanie that dress is beautiful Totally understand the issue with your uncle and the issue with expense Unfortunately my fiance s friends can t seem to get together without getting falling down drunk They re all in their late 30 s to mid 40 s so they seriously need to grow up and stop acting like high school kids One of his buddies decided about a year ago to post on my Facebook page that he hated me and didn t get along with me after only meeting me twice and the second time we met he walked out leaving me with the dinner tab for him and his girlfriend So I banned the guy from our wedding Seriously why would I want anybody at my wedding who feels that strongly that he would post something like that on my Facebook page when he doesn t even know me He and his friends say I need to get over it that s how this guy is and it was just his bad attempt at humor I didn t find it funny and neither did my family or friends I ve never gotten any apology for either incident or money to cover the bill I had to pay Now his friends are saying that if this guy isn t allowed to come then they won t come either And these are only 2 of the issues we face See why Vegas

t get out and get lost or freeze to death Also starting a fire is something to think about They tend to roam in the middle of the night so be extremely careful when she s there I made homemade beef

t been in real clothes for over 2 years with all her health issues But I have at least two days a week that I don t get dressed sometimes three I stayed in my P J s today until 5 00 but then my youngest son came to pick me up to go into town to meet my hubby I wasn t going to go but I told myself that I need to keep moving so I don t end up in the same condition my sister is in So I took two Aleve put on a Therma Care Patch for lower back pain and drug myself out for about an hr and a half But I was wiped out tired Some times I push myself too much when my pain levels are high and then I pay for it for a couple days Today they brought Hospice in for my Sister but then her Dr decided that he doesn t want to totally lose control of her care so they are sending in a different group next week for her in Home Health Care They should have done this two years ago but I guess better late than never Anyway he doesn t think she is at the point where she is ready for Hospice though I don t agree with him it gave me a renewed hope that she will still be with me for awhile longer Even though she lives in Spokane we talk 2 3 times per day just because she is scared and overwhelmed and I am the only one that has half a clue what she is enduring Darlen Darlene I got the Sweet Valentine s Card and Tea s from you today Thank You girlfriend I love Chai Tea don t purchase it very often so

girlfriend and she had given him a scarf Not a wool one but more like a bandana Well Mark was taking a break and we were just kind of watching this new romance blossom The aunt came in to pick him up and she started telling him to take the bandana off that it looked stupid and no one on the west coast would wear something like that not in Oregon That he was trying to be fashionable and no man would wear that Well it really got to Mark so in the middle of her brow beating this boy Mark spoke up and said ya know I used to wear one just like that and they are back in style She asked if Mark grew up here and he said I ve lived in Oregon my entire life He is in style and looks great Plus cowboys wear them all the time musicians wear them Well it shut her up It made both of us so upset that she was not letting this kid just be a teenager and wear clothes that a 50 year old wouldn t wear There was nothing distasteful at all He was wearing jeans a t shirt and a bandana I m kind of use to people giving me stares I have a whole arm of tattoos and one across my chest so it doesn t bother me when people stare or give me strange looks but dang lady let the kid be a kid wear funky clothes and don t be mean to him in front of his new girlfriend or put her down cause she gave it to him I realize that she may be unhappy with her life but it s not necessary to project it on to others Plus he had good taste he was listening to good jazz drinking a cup of coffee and being very respectful www fasterkittykill blogspot com staci860 True Blue Farmgirl 838 Posts Staci Newville PA USA 838

and had a cast on her arm She would hit us with the cast took the cast off and hit us bit us Whew but when I gained her confidence we were buddies She loved chocolate so I would bring her something

for a ride so she could hang her head out the window and get some fresh air She loves going bye bye and doesn t get to go enough Then we came home had some left over homemade soup and watched a little TV Larry accidentally threw Bella s ball in her water dish when he was tossing it for her She dug it out and then jumped up into my lap with her water logged plush football So then I tossed it onto my husband and got him all wet since he was laughing at me Bella thought the whole thing was great fun lol So we had a little water fight going on tonight I finished knitting a dish cloth and then started a scarf while I watched TV Nice day in all Well as usual I am off to read and start preparing my Thursday Night Bible Study Have you gals heard of the new Bible called The Story published by Zondervan It s The Bible done in Novel Form It takes the most pertinent text and puts it into Novel Format It is divided into 31 Chapters At the back of the book there are discussion questions for each chapter This Bible Novel was done by a panel of the most prominent preachers of our time Max Lucado being one of them He is one of my favorite Authors too Anyway that is what I will be teaching

back in the hospital for a few days She has fluid building up in her lungs and a high white count so there is an infection somewhere My Hubby and I have been fightin horribly Then yesterday he called me and was almost cryin He said he was so angry because he just wanted his family back He said doin all the work by himself wasn t a big deal but there was no sense of accomplishment in doin anything He said he was doin a job not takin care of things We talked for hours on the phone then he came over and we talked for hours with a good bit of arguin in the mix Things got really weird but I think they are on the mend between us He held my hand and hugged me more yesterday than he had in the last 6 months combined He then had a long talk with his mom and his aunt about her handlin things on her own and gettin back to her trailer His aunt has been fightin us on every decision lifewise and medicalwise She wants to be in control of everything and I can t handle her tryin to control my life He actually stood up to them both and told them he wasn t gonna sacrifice his marriage for either of them His aunt got really crappy and he told her to deal with it or she didn t have to be a part of his life at all that was her only choices I am actually startin to feel a little hopeful for us I am beginnin to feel like there might actually be an US to come back to He says he wants me to want to come back nit just to come back That he wants to have a marriage and a partner not just a roommate and coworker I am still watchin for pitfalls but I am startin to feel like the road we re walkin might be the right one He wants me to tell him how to prove himself and I never even asked him to prove himself I do want him to but I figured askin for it would just start another fight He offered it to me on his own Girls keep the prayers goin for us I think it s workin The porch is a powerful force for God Farmgirl Sister 1438 God Gardening Family Is anything else important Prairie Gypsy True Blue

so I can start doing the picture swaps It sounds like fun and it s always great to have a face to put with a name Today I woke up with a vicious headache bordering on a migraine Thankfully everybody is out of the office except for me so I can turn out the lights and try to keep sensory overload to a minimum I guess I shouldn t be surprised with all the nasty storm fronts moving in and out of our area that it triggered a headache this bad but they re never pleasant to deal with Last night my man and youngest son got the cabinet put up in the laundry room that we got from Restore Habitat For Humanity Didn t get a chance to get the shelves in it yet I had him hang it so that I could put quart canning jars on top of it for storage The cabinet is tall enough that there are 3 shelves so it should help significantly with storage issues I was going to start a knitting project to only discover that I only have 1 needle the size I need and I have no idea where the other one is I keep all my knitting needles in a vase for easy access It was weird I had one 7 and one 6 instead of pairs Looks like I ll have to make a special trip to the knitting store to pick up a pair or order online Hope

drafty but it s hidden away surrounded by oak and pine trees And we love it We live in the northern part of Florida and it has been very cold but still green I can t imagine being in the snow or Ice like you girls I will send some sunshine your way as soon as we get some We are hoping to get a little log home on some land we will purchase as soon as we have saved enough But for now the landlord says we can have goats and bees and chickens if we want So this is very new to me but it has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl I saw Little House on the Prairie and it was love I have found my very own Charles Ingles through trial and error LOL but I call him my Manley instead LOL And life now begins with my very own rendition of Lil House on the prairie So once it gets warm enough I am going to buy my beehives and plant an additional bee garden We have a butterfly garden and a veggie garden So if I can befriend any of you true blue farm girls with the knowledge that would be great We have a nice porch but no rockers it s on my wish list But I will be sitting there in my mind s eye hoping for warmer weather and a good year for my Farm girl Sisters It is so great to know that there are other women who love this life as much as I do www FineArtByT

    all Angela that is good news and will pray that DH continues to receive wisdom and revelation Melanie our ReStore gets the oddest stuff also I do love to poke around in there I need to do the floor in my main living area this summer and will be looking there first I am truly tired of OSB flooring Although I do have a way to finish it that I might fall back on if I do not find anything I like at the ReStore I sand off the words on the OSB cut it onto halves and apply stain Then several coats of bar varnish the really tough stuff Then rip some strips of pine down to 1 2 inch stain them a darker color and screw down the OSB with the strips between to form a large 4ft by 4ft grid pattern Cheap but a bit labor intensive The words and the lines do not come easily off the OSB I had to spend a lot of time with my belt sander on them But it does look good CMF kittykill True Blue Farmgirl 608 Posts Pam Portland or USA 608 Posts Posted Feb 09 2011 1 26 22 PM Peggy my heart and prayers

to get some teaching classes That all depends on if anyone wants to take the class and if I can get on a schedule I also need to make new samples for the quilt shops I only have 2 months worth of money left I have never been in this situation before and with everything that has happened so far I don t have much faith it will turn out the way I need it to I realized if anything happens to my

the job and then got angry when her old boss on the fire crew asked her to come back to work and she left the lumber crew Men CMF melanie47601 True Blue Farmgirl 1949 Posts Melanie Boonville IN USA

enjoyed the time cleaning especially since it s my own house I have even packed up a few RAOK gifts And I think I may have found the perfect place to hold our wedding this fall The place is called Thresherman s Park Twice a year the park hosts an Antique Gas and Steam Engine show with a huge flea market Our wedding will be the weekend before the fall show and they have our date open They have an old chapel we can rent and a clubhouse we can rent for the reception both for a 100 each The other two places we ve been looking at are 250 and 280 and we would still have to rent chairs and things Judy Yes it was good thing I opted to stay home yesterday Jeremy came in covered in mud so he had some fun but he was fired up mad at his buddy His friend was coming around a curve WAY too fast and almost hit him came about an inch away It would have been really bad if they had crashed And to make it worse Jeremy s friend jumped all over him like it was his fault I just looked at my honey and said and that s why I stay home I hear the kitchen cabinets calling my name so time to go back and paint some more Hugs Melanie Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the

couldn t stand livin life with things the way they were He was on the phone with me constantly We talked for hours about our life and how things have been over the years How things have changed in the last 2 years since movin in here We texted all night long a few nights which makes arguin a whole lot more civil Its hard to lecture or interrupt each other with a limited number of letters allowed and havin to wait for each statement to come through We really haven t settled much in our life but we are gettin really close He has come to me wantin to talk He has asked me if we can recommit ourselves to each other He asked me if we could take his wedding ring and have it fixed so he can wear it agian He hasn t worn it in a year since he broke his finger We have talked more in the last week and a half then we have in the last 2 years and with a lot less yellin I did finally get some vindication He has had his aunt admit to him that she doesn t like me and has been tryin to get me out of her family since she doesn t think I m good enough That resulted in a huge fight I didn t even know what was goin on since he was on the phone with her That means he chose to stand up for me and our marriage on his own I was thrilled even though I was upset that they were fightin I also found out he confronted his mom He began to notice that she seemed to be actin off She would holler like she was in pain when she sat down but not when she got up She would say she couldn t eat more than 4 or 5 bites of food without gettin sick but would eat 2 burgers if he took her out to eat She kept sayin she couldn t walk across the room but then she asked where her car keys were cause she wanted to go to the store Then he was tellin her about his plans for me for valentines day and she actually asked him to take her out with us He asked her what was goin on She refused to answer him He start yellin at her about everything that s been goin on and she said she just wanted to spend the rest of her life with him He told her that she was gonna be livin in an attatched apartment and that was as good as it was gonna get She said that she didn t want that because she was still alone When he told her he already had a wife to live with she said yeah and I didn t give this house to her He was so mad he left and came to stay the night with me so we could talk We decided to move out since she couldn t be trusted He returned the next mornin to tell her and she was so upset he called his aunt to come sit with her He came back to
