Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessica or any of the other hosts.  :)

Today there are a few things I wanna talk about:

    1.  My hip.  I talked a lil bit about my looming procedure on my hip.  I had surgery on my right hip about five years ago for hip impingement, well, it's back & I have to go through the whole thing again except this time both the specialist & the surgeon have since retired so I'm starting off new...kinda.  Well, the specialist my primary doctor has me set to see doesn't have a great reputation, however, he's done work for my husband & his parents & they like him.  So, I figured that I will go meet with him & if I don't get a good feeling, I'll go elsewhere.  I already had anxiety about this whole situation & now trying to find the right doctor to take care of me is just creating more anxiety & I am not liking it.  I know that it will all work out & I'll get the attention I need but it's just a lil scary right now.

    2.  My stepdaughters' mother.  Sunshine has been trying to contact her mother for weeks now with little or no response.  During one response, Sunshine was told by her mother that she was "busy doing things she liked".  Apparently, talking to your youngest daughter is not something she likes.  This whole ordeal is not new to me as their mother did the same thing to Trouble at about the same age as Sunshine is now.  Nothing has changed except that this time, Sunshine WANTS to talk with her mother, Trouble just cut her out.  I've said things before to their mother about staying in touch & talking with her daughter/s.  I did it again this morning.  I just sent her a message saying that she needed to respond or that eventually, Sunshine will just give up on their relationship.  Although both of these girls have told me that I am their mom even though I didn't give birth to them, I still know that it hurts them that their mother doesn't talk to them & the only time she does is when she wants to get sympathy from them or yell at them about something they did or didn't do.  It's just frustrating that a mother can treat her daughters that way.  I am sure that nothing will change but I know that I tried & that I have always been & will always be the bigger, more positive person.

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
