Drawing a big fat line in the sand!
Hi My Pink Angels: I have drawn a big fat line in the sand. You see for starters, I have had my lovely grand daughter stay for three and a half weeks (her mother can't control her - so I was asked to take her....) Well I couldn't say no - I think it was meant I was to step in and wave a big stick - I haven't seen this kid for two years and believe me, THAT wasn't going to happen! I have to say it was worth it as my grand daughter and I forged a wonderful friendship - though I am not happy about sending her back to a 'hornets nest' but far beit for me to 'stick my nose in'....We drove her to the airport yesterday (about 700 kilometres return trip) and we, (that is hubby and I), both hate the traffic, people and noise - so airports really are intimidating to both of us, all hubby could do was quietly mumble from the side of his mouth - "Oh, I hate this place!' Of course the drive in the traffic left us both white-knuckled and ashen faced - we both heaved a sigh of relief as I prized my fingers from the dashboard as we entered the freeway and the traffic thinned out. The night before when hubby cooked 'a special meal, (as the grand daughter was leaving the next day) - he served up creamed mushroom sauce on perfectly cooked T-Bone steaks and yours truly snapped a tooth in my denture (oh great!) I raced to the bathroom to rinse my plate (an tooth) so I could later 'glue the tooth back in) and the tooth went sailing down the plug hole - I groaned in dispair, I know the plate needed replacing, but since I got sick I have been waiting to have one last front tooth pulled so I could have the new plate................sigh! In the meantime, I closed down my Facebook account - I did this because I found one of my children had been posted back to Queensland (too busy to ring me, but not too busy for her FB friends) and I also discovered my second youngest son is getting married this weekend (in QLD also)...........no I didn't get an invite, so I didn't even know the date - I did get told however, that the woman who ruined my last marriage (my son's step mother) had her name put on the invitations as 'his Mother' - I didn't even warrent a mention - Yes, I was a bit peeved - no actually I wasn't - I was EXTREMELY peeved, and hurt! So here we are; Facebook! mmmmmm, I also found out that my grand daughter's mother had been asked on FB what airline was my grand daughter flying, to which my daughter replied, "Who cares, as long as Mum's paying for it all........." So yesterday I kissed my lovely grand daughter goodbye at Tullamarine.....yes, I cried! We got home last night too tired to even think straight and my poor hubby flaked out in the chair (he never does that normally!) and the phone rang, the mobile beeped - "Why aren't you on Facebook" - I gave the short answer "I don't want to play anymore! get over it!" This morning I had to get up and go and get the stitches out on my face - yes, it was cancer and yes, it was a very nasty one - but lucky we got it before it went to the glands..................Oh I breathed a sigh of relief - so apart from that 'scar that had 11 stitches on my face' - I wonder if the doc notices my 'gappy smile?' between that and all the other scars - right now I need to 'hide', I need to 'breath' and stay away from that nasty old Facebook that has too much information for me to digest right now! - Yes ladies I have indeed drawn a big fat line in the sand! - and there are some in my life (not just my children) but relo's and so-called friends are not allowed to cross it - because I know for sure 'they' are the ones that don't care and have shown it accordingly. I am sure you wouldn't blame me. This morning after the doctors appointment, we bought some more plants for our little garden and I commented to my husband.......I just want to enjoy this, I really do, really, really do!
