PostHeaderIcon A New LO

Ooopsie! It's been awhile since I have sat down and blogged. And believe me...I sure needed to take some time and do so. I am not really good at keeping a journal so this serves that purpose for me in addition to helping me remember events for my scrapbooking. I am not a prolific scrapper. I can't seem to crank out pages like I see alot of ladies do. I wish I could sometimes and other times I am glad I don't. But isn't that the case, we always want what we don't have.

My Grandfather is still in the hospitol and getting his meds regulated. I miss him and I don't. I think I am just still tired from caring for him. I have yet to pack all his things for the Nursing home. I need to but I keep procrastinating. Maybe because I know that makes it final that he is never going to live with family again. I find myself doing things and thinking that he won't ever be he doing them with me or cooking something and thinking he won't sit and have a family dinner with us just won't ever be the same..I know I can take him out for day visits and take him some of his favorite dishes..but it's not the same. =( And I do know it's for the best that he does not live here. My daughter is still staying at her fathers. She just says she is not comfortable coming home until she knows for a FACT that her Great Grandpa is in the nursing home. I can't blame her as she did witness him having some pretty bizarre behaviors and hallucinations. I have just try to do my best to reassure her that what she feels is very ok and I understand.

I did get a chance to have lunch with my son last Thursday. It seems forever since we got to sit and visit with just me and him. He turned me on to the best onion rings ever at Cheeburger Cheeburger. He wanted to eat there because he wanted an Apple Caramel shake. I tasted it and was sooooo good!

Saturday was date nite for me and hubby...considering we having had one in MONTHS! Before we left the house Shaina called and bored at her dad's so we picked her up and she went tot he movies with us. We saw Alice in Wonderland in 3D. Way Awesome! I sorta felt sorry for the Red Queen though. She needed love too.

It was a much needed break for us and we had a great time together.

I am hoping our outing helps me fight these winter blues I seem to have gotton. All I wanna do is sleep here at home but when I go out I am fine. So right now eventhough it's still a little bit chilly, I opened all the windows to let in some fresh air and I am forcing myself to do a bit of spring cleaning.

For the most part I have kept up with my P365 photos but I won't post them all.

Instead...I will post the LO I did Sunday.

Shaina is the one with the glasses =) and you can click on the photo if you want to read the journaling.

About Me

My Photo
Balinda (RebelChick)
Just an everyday girl trying to find my way in the world to live life fiercely and passionately. I was a signature tagger for several years but art journaling has replaced that passion and it feeds my soul creativiely and spiritually. I also homeschool my DD, scrapbook, play around in photography, spoil my cats and drive my hubby insane on a daily basis. My faith in the Lord helps me juggle all these blessings. I keep this blog because it makes me happy. Sometimes I blog a lot and other times it collects a little dust. Thanks for visiting and being my friend.♥
