Bursting the Bubble

You know how everything is just going great and your happy and having fun and smiling and laughing and then all of the sudden someone comes a long and bursts your bubble?  Well, that is me today.  I guess sometimes someone just has to slap you back into reality.  I am the kind of person who just wants to have a good time.  And I want everyone else to have a good time too.  I just don't see why bad things have to happen.  Not that anything too bad has happened.  I just hate having to be the one to spoil the party.  I guess that's what comes with being an adult or a parent.  Yah, yah, I know I am just a big kid at heart and I don't want to have to be all responsible all the time.  Why cant we all just have our cake and eat it too?  I really don't see what the big deal is.  However, I guess there are always bills to pay, laundry to do, dishes to wash, bathrooms to clean.  Doggone it!

So, we've had a great time celebrating and running around since Michael's return.  But now reality of life has set in and I have to get serious.  And I have to be the one to remind everyone else to get serious as well.    For example, I have to find me a full time job.  I've been in and out of part time jobs up to now, but I need to get serious about it now.  The older boys need to get jobs too.  School is about to start and the house is still being built and not fast enough.

So, how do you do all of these serious responsible things and still have fun and not get discouraged and keep your chin up and have a positive attitude?  Well, I am determined to find out.  It's not gonna be easy I know, but someone has to be the adult around here right?  Okay, so here goes..........


  1. You can do it with your "can do" attitude..My life consists of "Monday I'll get serious and start that diet"..Monday I will start looking for a better job..Monday I'll clean that closet..the problem is Too many Mondays have come and gone and here we are at another Monday..Next Monday for sure..I'll be rooting for you from here..good luck and big hugs..
