Sometimes we just need to vent. This was posted on FaceBook, but didn't get many replies, so I decided to put it on the blog site.

IN MY LIFE, I want to be in at least 5 different places at all times. I feel drawn to be there for my mom, my children, my grandchildren, my great-grandchildren, my friends, my other family members, and also still have time to read, write, journal, draw, practice piano, work in the yard, talk on the phone, watch a few favorite TV Shows, cook everyday, clean the house, feed..water..wash...put dogs outside and then inside, feed the cat... pet the cat... let cat give me a nightly neck massage, take a long, relaxing bath with candles around the tub, scream at reckless drivers, remember to wear sun screen, wash...fold...put up laundry, wash dishes...put up clean dishes... wash dishes again, sweep floors, vacuum floors, mop floors, clean the tub and shower, start the day with coffee and Kelly and Michael, go to the Y, never mind (exercise at home...never mind... walk around the block... never mind. make doctor appointments... forget doctors appointments, forget to sign granddaughters daily notebook... hide from teacher, drag child away from toy department.... drag her Papa away from toy department, drag child and Papa away from chocolate candy... find chocolate candy hidden in Papa's bedside drawer... scream and yell about fruit and vegetable... watch Papa and child cry, take care of great- grandbaby girl, watch baby girl throw new camera on floor ... watch new camera never work again, it's OK baby girl! Please.... please... please... break everything in house... just smile at me with those big blue eyes, and give me that laugh, and that hug, and make my day! You are my joy. I love you so much!
WHERE AM I? WHO AM I?
I am a great-grandmother, I am living my Golden Years in a world where I can't seem to find the time to do all I want to do. I am just glad to be alive. I am glad for the love that I receive from my family and friends!
My precious little great-granddaughter, Wynter Rose. She will be 2 years old in June.
