My Life/ No more snow PLEASE...


This has got to be the longest winter I can remember. I swear we get more snow everyday. I had a feeling last night that school was going to be canceled and sure enough all the kids are home today. John is still very sick I am trying to talk him into going to the doctor but he keeps saying that he does not need to. His seems to be more in his chest, his fevers are what bothers me, but everyone I talk to say that it does linger for quite a while. Hopefully he can manage to go back to work tomorrow. I just want life back to normal well whatever that may be. Last night proved that there really is never a dull moment in my life. All the daycare kids went home I finshed cleaning up and my phone rings. My youngest sister is on the phone hysterical, asking me to keep Junior until her class was done, see I kept Junior for dinner last night and I was going to bring him home to my Mom later in the evening. Well Katie and My Mom got into an arguement and Katie did not want my Mom having Junior at all. Anyone who knows Katie and my Mom this is very typical. This time I could hear my Mom crying and My sister's boyfriend yelling in the background. I told Katie I would keep him but when I got off the phone I found myself instantly getting upset. I thought why in the world do they all have to do this. The more I thought about it, I decieded I needed to go over there, it really bothered me hearing someone talking so loudly to my Mom. I had just taken John's Temp, it was 103 once again. I load him up on medication and tell the older kids to watch the younger ones and I take off. I can barely get out of my driveway it is snowing so badly. I get over there and all hell is breaking loose. My Dad is out in his garage doing what he does best and Katie, Rich & my Mom are going at it. They are fighting over how to raise Junior and various other things. I am trying to be the voice of reason but suddenly I am right in the middle of all of it. I like Rich I think he has been nothing but great for Katie but I did not like how he was talking to my Mom and he got to see the bitch side of me real fast. I guess I am old fashioned I do not think that any Man should yell at a women especially his girlfriends mother. It's not that I am siding with anyone I see all their points but there is such a thing as respect. When someone takes you in as part of the family and loves you like their own, there is really no need to scream in their face and point out all their flaws. My Mom is not perfect, none of us are. Yes she may have alot of issues with my Dad, but those issues are not ours to judge. Maybe she does try to control Junior more than she should, but she has good intentions. It is just very hard for Rich and Katie to see this because they live with her. My Mom loves children, anyone that knows her will tell you that. She does spoil her grand kids, does it piss me off sometimes? Yes, but that is what Grand parents do.... She also is always there to help out. She is a free babysitter, I can call her whenever and she will never say no. I can depend on her to always be there for my kids and that is something that I am very grateful for. She has a very kind heart, except when it comes to my Dad, but I can't always blame her for that. After last night I really see how troubled they all are. No one can ever admitt they are wrong in that house. Katie and my Mom have alot of issues from the past that they need to deal with, without anyone else stating their opinion. I pray that they can become close again. I think the first step is having Katie and her family move out of my parents house, I believe that will help alot. Then maybe their relationship will get better. After an hour or maybe longer I finally come home and John is hot, he is so tired of all the drama, he see's it as I just waisted a night with my own family. Which he is right, was it worth my time and getting myself all worked up? Plus Junior and Hailey were making mess after mess and John being as sick as he was had a very hard time keeping up with them. So I came home to another battle. Families.. Gotta love them...

Oh girl!! The way you told me this today was much more hilarious than reading it. I can only imagine the struggles you and John deal with when it comes to families. Just remember - you cannot choose your family and God gives them to you for a reason. But you can choose your friends - and I'm glad you chose me! ~Ha!
I hope your night is less hectic tonight!
Love ya girl!

I think John needs a Doctor. Stubborn men! Why wont they ever see doctors unless they are dying? But seriously I keep hearing of this nasty bug turning to something worse.
I'm sure your family can smooth some of that stuff out. Everyone just needs to step back and try to see each others point of view. Jason's side is where most of our drama comes from. Uggh. But hey, its family,what would we do without them?

Perhaps they need to write their thoughts down and then share them? You do have a dramatic family! I don't think you've had a quiet moment since I ran across your blog. Don't forget to be good to yourself! I hope John feels better soon!
