Any OTHER parents out there?  🤔

 

Lol, you would think we would "let go" so they can spread their ADULT wings to explore life!!!

 

I have my good days when I can do this then something UNEXPECTED happens and I want to RESCUE her (only child).

 

But as we all know as Moms, sometimes we cannot and have to BELIEVE things will work out for them.

 

In my case - my daughter who was an Engineer in Florida had a SURPRISE MASS LAYOFF at her job on 4/11/24. She will "text" to let me know she is "alive" EACH DAY as she already knows I will call the Police to do a WELLNESS CHECK.  🙄🙄🙄  I am in Virginia. But she refuses to "answer" her cell to talk about all this.

 

I would LUV to hear YOUR thoughts as a parent.

 

Thanks, Nicole  🤗

Thank you Nicole. Good to hear from you too, and also to read everyone's shares. I was trying to start a new topic. What Not To Do When Grieving. I found a good article but can't find it again. I've done a lot of what Not to do when grieving. Lol Does everyone have suggestions of what not to do?  Thank you.

Don't be silent. Express your feelings and needs to people who are in your safe circle.

I have one suggestion. Don't ignore that you're in grief.

I'm glad you slept well. It's definitely a challenge not to worry. I don't have any suggestions. Lol.

Hi MC @mc6844 , I don't know IF you have kids [I seem to remember you had mentioned grandkids, excuse my Senior Moment  🙄] - but NO matter how OLD they are [my daughter is 37] - we moms do worry. I am sure as an Engineer she will find something soon! 🤗

Thank you Nicole. Ok now. So many harsh chemicals in everyday products. Gotta give it more thought I guess.

Hi Nicole! And all on the site. You've been in my thoughts and good wishes.

I've been recovering from a reaction to laundry detergent. Ugh! I think we get tired when we're already going through things. And need to take better care of ourselves. I hope you are all well and doing what you can each day. Have a blessed day!

So sorry mc @mc6844 that you are dealing with this reaction. I hope you find some products that your body doesn't reject. At least you have found the culprit and we are fortunate that they make so many kinds of products these days to choose from.

Today here in MA  it's a good day to get outside and start to look for signs of Spring..Forsythia is in full bloom so are the Daffodils and Azaleas..Get some yard work done if you're up to it or just sit with a cup of tea and enjoy the sounds and surroundings...I am making a mental list of things I hope to start like planting flowers in my planters and perhaps spray painting a worn out plastic chair in a cheerful color...Hope your day has possibilities..

HOW ARE YOU?  🤔

 

Today I have to go by my NEW Eye to pick up the paperwork I will need to fill out for my 8am appointment tomorrow. Yes, 8am and they want you there 15 minutes EARLY.  😱😱😱

 

I had gotten an automated phone call day before yesterday to go to their website to register. NO spot to register. Just a list of stuff to printout and fill in. NO printer and had planned on going to Library, but not in the mood to deal with their printer.  🙄🙄🙄

 

So called and asked IF I could pick them up. Some places mail stuff or allow you to complete online. Not them. What a pain!

 

HOPE I sleep tonight. Lol, don't need to arrive looking like I have a hangover or do drugs (donot drink or do drugs).

 

Rainy, yucky day today and tomorrow.

 

Everyone, FIND YOUR PEACE  💙💙💙

I'm surprised Nicole @SpringIsHereSoHappy that you extended your lease into 2025 with that kind of neighbor! I can only hope the next year goes by quickly for you!

Lol Marcy @MarcyW882921 , it was NOT planned!!!

 

NEW owners took us OFF the month-to-month lease and I had to sign a NEW year's lease STARTING this month.

 

So my PLAN of "taking my time" to move back to Florida 100% WHEN I found something there got CHANGED.

 

Realistically, as I AGE, I need to make sure my NEXT move is NOT A REPEAT of this h.ll. Since moving in here in 2018 and still working and car newer - it was okay.

 

Now that it has been SOLD, new owners are moving in the ghetto. Not safe anymore. And my DAY TRIPS are on hold since the other Old Lady [the car] has grown older like me/lol.

 

But that is life - UNEXPECTED CHANGES...  👵

These changes are very sad Nicole @SpringIsHereSoHappy and you are at the mercy of the new owners. For now I guess you will learn to tolerate your current circumstance and work toward making your next move one that will be satisfying long-term.
