Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Bummed Out

I don’t have anything to write about that is of any interest to anybody. I just have a lot of things on my mind that is family and  personal that has had me down and bummed out over the past few days. With out going in to any great detail lets just say I have been disappointed and let down. Again!!! Why do people you care about and love do the things they do? And if that’s not enough I have been dealing with my mom in the nursing home. She’s not playing nice with the nurse’s.

And if that’s not enough our refrigerator is on the blink,all the food is sitting in several ice chest in the kitchen. 

So enough of my problems,I found some interesting photos I thought some of you may like to see. All were caught at the right angels.



















Please have a good and safe week and take care of each other.

Thanks fer the laugh with the photos, they was good. Bout yer problems, I can tell ya from experience that them kind of things don't magically go up in a puff of smoke when ya start fulltiming. In fact they's harder to take care of when yer on the road, at least from myown experiences and prospectertive.

Those are some funny pictures.

What is not funny is when lots of stuff hits us at the same time. Seems that is what is happening in your life right now. Take care of yourself the best can you and take it one day at a time. This too shall pass.

God bless.

So sorry for your troubles. As Erma Bombeck once said, "If life's a bowl of cherries, what am I doing here in the pits?" Hope tomorrow is a better day for you...

Deborah said...

The photos were great. Thanks for sharing. OK, bad things come in threes, so you are done! It's uphill from now on!

My Mom wasn't too nice when she went into the nursing home. The staff is used to that, I am sure. And, we both know that the anger that our Mom's experienced has to be unbelievable. If I am ever in that situation, I hope they give me happy pills every 4 hours.

As for others disappointing you - what is the saying "don't expect much and you won't be disappointed". I always want the best for those I love, but unfortunately my definition of best isn't always the same as theirs. So, I have just resigned to hoping they make the right choices and are happy.

I hope things are better tomorrow.

Sorry to hear you are having some tough times. I certainly hope things will improve for you real soon. My mom was in a nursing home for two years....I know the stress that can create. My prayers are with you.

On a lighter side....thanks for the funny pictures. :-)

Donna K said...

So sorry to hear about everything hitting you at once. Hope things are looking up tomorrow. God Bless.

Loved the pictures...sorry about the struggles you are dealing with. My mom was not the nicest to the nurses either...I think when they are not the ones in control life becomes harder for them. Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. Hope you have a better week.

The good thing about blogging is that you can vent a little and nobody will take offense. The people or person who has distressed you probably doesn't even look at your blog.

My mother didn't play nice either. It was her loss. She could have and some nice days if she had just accepted her situation and accepted the care the nurses were willing to give. Instead she gve everyone a hard time and had a miserable time herself.

She was a good example for me. A good example of how not to be.

You bring a smile to others. Thank you.

Rick and Paulette said...

Maybe you weren't feeling all that great, but you managed to give us all a good laugh. Thanks, and I hope you are feeling better soon.

Carol K said...

I have learned to lower my expectations from people, but I still get hurt. I'm sorry you are experiencing a low period. My prayers are with you. And, by the way, thank you for the amusing photos!

Dennis and Donna said...

There is nothing worse than having someone let you down. And I'm sure your mom is heavy on your mind...But...isn't is so nice to see the love and support from our bloggosphere....Your photos made me laugh outlout.., now you do the same...sending good Karma your way...and group hug from blogland.

Catherine, Jo Beth and Grace said...

Enjoyed the pictures- sorry you are having a rough spot.

JOJO said...

Sorry about the problems. I know how that goes and recently I have had some really hard times. The ones you count on aren't always the ones we can. if that makes any sense. So I have set my sites on moving on getting better and heading on to better things in a few week. Look forward to brighter things.
You brought laughter to us in the photos and that was wonderful.
I will keep you in my thoughts.

Kevin and Ruth said...

Sorry things aren't going your way at the moment. Sometimes family things are like that, I am sure we have all had them at one time or another. I really hope things will sort out for you. If it makes you feel any better, you have certainly given us a good laugh. We enjoyed those photos.
