Boundaries and no answers. 12.16.18

Dealing with changes is challenging no matter what your age.

At 56 after waiting 8 very long years for my son, a vet and I, to find a middle ground, I decided to make that move from NH to NC.

Sadly/gladly, thanks to my daughter, the day we packed the truck for the move, I saw my son for the first time in two years.

He stated, you’ve never came to visit me. Interesting statement considering I had been told his home was off limits.

Trying for a mom hug, the response? “You start any shit and I’ll get in my truck and leave.”

Painful? Hell yes!

Am I still sad? Definitely!

Can I continue to keep my life on hold? No!

He’s angry about life.

I’ve researched, tried at least 20 plus ways to approach him.

It doesn’t work!

I’ve been in NC, barely a week and now I’m getting angry texts. Some random subjects that make zero sense, others make sense but, why now?

He just threatened me with not being in my life if I don’t give a particular item of mine, that I had planned on giving him.

Uhm, hello?

He would have had it the day I moved. Unfortunately in texting with him a few days earlier he informed me he wasn’t going to be there, so I packed it.

Three guesses which box? Honestly, I don’t know.

My dad was a correctional officer in the 1940-50’s. I have his badge. My son followed a similar route, not the same state. Yes, it would be awesome for him to have it.

But he’s accusing me of hiding it from him. Sigh.

So after numerous ugly texts that started last night. Then continued into today.

I blocked him.

Then got physically ill.

๐Ÿ˜ข

He text me a different way.

“You blocked me?”

I didn’t answer.

I’m out of answers.

My son always says-

A MOTHER NEVER GIVES UP!

He’s Right!

I JUST PUT MYSELF IN TIMEOUT!

Made it! Part 1 -shared 12.15.18

The truck was packed up on last Saturday!

My daughter and I, though over tired, decided it was best to leave at 4:30pm and get a head start on our trip.

Even a couple hours would help.

There was a big snowstorm due in North Carolina. Our goal was to time it just right, so that we weren’t traveling in the brunt of it! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

The first night we stayed in Hartford Connecticut after traveling only about one hour and 45 minutes.

The second day we literally made it about 36 miles out of Fredericksburg Virginia before we hit that lovely white stuff! At that time the storm had shutdown our final destination in North Carolina!

Thankfully my daughter had planned ahead and had reservations in Fredericksburg.

Tired but thankful to be there, through snowflakes as large as your big toe. We pulled into our hotel at the perfect time!

Above, the watchful eye of my co-pilot! chief

Abby!

More tomorrow…

Moving Day! Yikes!

Happy Saturday!

It’s an extremely cold single digit temperature, this early a.m.! Brrrr!

Iโ€™m sitting here amongst 2 gigantic walls of boxes thinking ๐Ÿค” Damn! I sure could use a Riverside Restaurant, (Springfield, VT), Reuben and some fries!!! Ha! Ha!

I’m sipping on a wee hour of the morning, coffee… my โ€œHope I havenโ€™t forgotten anything thoughtsโ€, are swirling! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Well the gang showed up!

Truck picked up and packed!

Left early evening to get a head start! There is a big snow storm moving in down South.

Just wanted to drop by with an update and a hello!

Drove about 2 hours…

Thought for today:

Love and Kind Regards – K

Iโ€™m dumpster challenged! 12.1.18

Just after dark, this 30 yard monstrosity was delivered.

Learned something new, a 10 tire truck can get stuck in a snowy driveway! I grabbed a shovel and helped the driver dig down to my gravel driveway so he could get out. WIN!

Of course, it doesn’t help, I live smack dab on the center of a gigantic hill! With a slanted driveway too!

This morning, I went out to throw my first bag in!

OH SH*T! That sucker IS TALL! I’m 5’10” and the edge is just above my head.

I was perplexed. How the heck was I going to throw all my weeded memories and “let gos”, into it?

Grabbed my cell and called my best buddy. Who knew, that one end actually opens up? You can literally walk into it. DUH!

Of course, we had a wonderful chuckle at my expense! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Just call me “dumpster challenged”!

Guess now I need to start throwing my hoeing!

North Carolina, watch out, this NH country gal will be there soon!

Kind Regards and still laughing- K

Good morning!

Where did the week go?

I’m still sorting through 4 generations of “stuff”, preparing for my move.

I may just have a case of clean out- burn out! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Note to self: When and if I ever need to do this again, definitely hire help!

๐Ÿฆƒ

I apologize for this post being late. ๐Ÿค—

๐Ÿฆƒ

How is everyone?

Did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving? A close friend of mine, drove 3 hours to bring me a lovely dinner. You cannot put a price tag on quality time!

Now, another best part of this week, sharing the talented, creative, unique blogs, I have visited.

Shameful Behavior

I am witness

Of what you have done

To her.

Inflicting her heart

With the agonizing pain

Of ten-thousand deaths

With your manipulative

Ways.

Making her life decisions

Without consultation,

Imprisoning her in a world

Of self doubt.

Tempting her with

glimpses and promises

of your love and warmth.

Then yanking them away

Knocking her off her feet.

Time and again.

Never allowing

The dust of comfort

And peace to settle.

You are an idiot

Undeserving of her

Unselfish gifts of

Heart, warmth, caring

And love.

It’s simple.

Passive aggressive

Behavior is your specialty.

A person’s life decisions

Belong to them.

Freedom of choice

Through communication

And collaboration with

Knowledge of all the facts.

The only existing copyright

Of creating circumstances

For blind lifestyle choices

Belong to God and the

universe.

To think all her pain

Was avoidable,

If only you were who

You portrayed yourself

To be.

Unfortunately, the scars

Of your making

Will remain forevermore.

My only hope is

That I have saved her

In time.

As for you,

I know she wishes you

The best

And will always be dumb

Enough to hold a tiny spark

Of hope.

For she is a beautiful

believer in the power

Of good in everyone.

Wander

Oh how my heart

Sings

Filled with glorious

Memories.

A captured lifetime

Array

Of Pictures,

My family

Now living above

Or grown and scattered.

A fabulous afternoon

Of wandering

Sweet visuals of

Times that were.

Photography

Captures

Precious moments

Forever carried within

My heart.

What a wonderful

Way to spend a day!

Celebrating the old

Whilst clearing a path

Towards an exciting new.

Kind Regards

and snuggles- K

It just keeps a coming! 11.18.18

As I continue my quest to ready myself for the move from NH to NC.

๐ŸŽˆ

Who knew?

Between my parent’s stuff and my children’s stuff from birth through school days into adulthood!

Add years of all my crafts, sewing, woodworking along with miniatures in the 1/12th scale!

Sorting and sorting from nooks, crannies, totes, closets and file cabinets. All tucked away in the garage, storage and closets!

Am I a hoarder or a sentimental Ol’ fool?

Bring on more Kleenex, I’m diving in again!

๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ข

๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿคฃ

Kind Regards and reminiscing- K

All in

When you truly love

Something Or someone.

Be all in.

True love

Buds and blossoms.

Creates lush fields

Filled with warmth and joy.

Halfway, leaves a dying

Useless wasteland.

When chance opens

Loves door

Be all in.

โค๏ธโ˜€๏ธโค๏ธ

Kind Regards and

Feeling peaceful – K
