Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

I could not agree with this more.  Words only get you so far, it's the action that really means something.  You can talk until you're blue in the face about how you're gonna do this & that but until you start the action to change, I don't believe it.  I don't believe it at all.

I cannot even tell you how many times I have told this to Trouble & she says that she wants to be better & do better, blah, blah, blah.  However, her actions are the complete opposite.  I don't even believe anything she says anymore, I'm so tired of having my hopes up that she's gonna be the good person I know that she is & have them crushed by her lashing out at someone - Paul, me, Sunshine, her grandparents, her teachers, her principal - when she isn't getting her way.  It's horrible.

I'm at a loss with her, I just don't know what to do anymore.  I love her & I'm worried about her but at this time, I want nothing to do with her cuz she has caused me so much pain (emotionally & physically).  I know that I'm the adult & I need to look past all the crap that she has done but it's just not me she's doing this to & I'm scared that she's gonna take it too far & end up in jail or the morgue.
I just wish that she would act on what she's told me & get her shit together.  I've done all that I can do without strapping myself to her to make sure that she's making the right decisions.  Right now, I feel that the only options in our situation is that she goes to in-patient to get her behavioral/mental problems under control or I have to leave & I really don't want to do that but I cannot continue to live in a home that I do not feel safe in due to a sixteen year old.  It's sad & it kills me but I just cannot see any other options.  :(

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.
