How would you feel?

How would you feel if your son's mother in law called you to tell you what you are doing wrong in regards to how you raise your children?


How would you feel if this woman told you that your son is weak and that he will never be a man because you spoil him?


How would you feel if this woman told you that all you did was make your son a dependent brat?





Yes, One of three strikes again.



Her daughter and son in law have been kicked out of the son's father's house. The father and son had some kind of argument and the father kicked them out so the daughter called mom to say " We are coming for an extended visit."





One of three was shocked to find them coming with all their clothes and computer etc to move into the daughers old bedroom.


Her problem is that her house is sooooo small and she can't have them living in her house. So I think her motivation is just to get them out of her house.


She said she was going to call the father in law and I said it is not your problem to address. What you need to do to set some firm rules for your house and do whatever necessary to get them out of your house.


She called her son in law"s father and said all the things listed above. I had to tell her to be quiet because she was talking so loudly.





When she got off the phone she was frustrated because she feels that she could not get her point across to the father. She turns and says to me


" Can you believe that?"


I replied " I can't believe you call H's father and said that to him."


"What, I am concern for my daughter and they have to get out of my house."



" If you felt it necessary to say something you say it to your daughter and to her husband!"





blank stare























I said " How would you feel if someone told you that your daughter was lazy and would never amount to anything because you spoiled her rotton."




"It would be a wake up call. That is all I was trying to do."







It was my turn to have the blank stare.

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…
Sew Perfect 4 Every Body Goals vs Dreams A conversation over Tea Hello , If you read this blog at all you know it has been almost a year since I have posted anything.
Like so many things with me a lot of unfinished objects...projects...business. I keep putting off the things in my life that I love .  I thought that i was trying hard to stop the trait but I
come to realize that is not so. I am my biggest obstacle. What is really bad is when I get the courage to
share something that i really want to do if that person makes the slightest  discouraging comment,
I am like what am i thinking. WHY DO I DO THAT! I am not really sure why that is.   Recently my husband had a problem with is knee it was swollen and painful.
 We go to the urgent care and then to the Emergency room next thing I know he is admitted to the hospital
and needs surgery to clean out an septic infection.  He would need to be 6 weeks off work.
He was top on my mind of course but the bills were like a animal crouching to …
