My ears hurt.

See that handsome guy shaking hands with a fire fighter? Well that is my hubby. He makes the local paper a couple times a year. The older man sitting down is the man I danced with. I must say that my husband looks older then he is. One person actually asked me if I had a sugar daddy. No, I wish, My husband just looks older then he really is. I will give everyone the link to this article at the end of the post.
My ears have been bothering me since I landed in Chicago. I know while I was in Chicago they were hurting because of the drastic change in weather, and now they are hurting again. Yesterday I coned my ears and got some crap out, and then I took a sudifed and went to bed! This weather is just messing with my head.
I do not have a lot planned for today. I have a lot of little stuff that I need to get done, but nothing earth shattering. I did finally finish the never ending cat quilt. I will have to have Amber take a picture of it. Now I am cutting out all the material for the other quilt that I have to get done.
My sewing machine has been acting up. I have really debated about buying a new one, but I just can't bring myself to go get one. My mother has the same sewing machine that she had when I was a baby, and that machine just keeps going and going. I know they do not make them like they use to, but maybe someday I will be able to afford a nice machine instead of the cheapest thing at wal mart.
I got an e mail from my mom yesterday. She gave me one of my uncle's phone numbers and then told me about what was going on. She is very up set that my niece got a lawyer. I stayed positive in my e mail back to her. I need to remember that a positive response to everything shuts down negativity.
For many years I had to deal with negative people. Then I just got so sick of it, and found some good books on dealing with negativity. I was as guilty as being negative as the next person. It took me a long time to learn to spin everything into a positive light. Once I got good at it, the negative people just started drifting away. Negative people are just that, and they want to drag everyone down with them. As for me, I am not going to be drawn into that cycle again.
I still have not decided if I am going to call my uncle. This uncle is my dad's youngest brother. We really did not know him while we were growing up. By the time my dad got out of the Army and got married his brother was just finishing high school.
Part of me would like to know what he has been up to, and part of me wants to get to know him. However I have to wonder if he is like the rest of my fathers family and is an alcoholic. I just don't want to deal with that. I guess I will never know if I don't call him. I also suppose that if I don't want to speak to him any more, then I can just send all of his calls to voice mail. HMMM I will have to think on this subject a little bit more.
My one foster baby is going back to the shelter and he will get fixed this weekend. He has grown up to be a very handsome young man and he stole the heart of a marine wife. So this baby has a home and he will be living in 29 Palms soon. There is just something very magical about watching these little guys grow up and become big kitties.
I stink. I need a shower.
Life is good

Just one more thing we have in common. Paul looks alot older than I do too. I remember him dropping me off at an AA meeting and having someone ask me if it was my dad. The strange thing is he's only 2 years older and the first time I've been with someone older...I always dated younger, I didn't look the part and could get away with it.

Your in my thoughts dear one, dealing with your mother. I'm not in touch with mine for all the reasons you haven't been with yours. (Hugs)Indigo

I hope your ears get better.
I know what you mean about your family. I have some I want to know too, but I'm not sure yet.
Hope you have a great day.
Take care, Chrissie

Hope the ears are feeling better. I'm with you and Indigo. I have to only speak happy thoughts to my mom since she is the queen of doom and gloom. I'm glad you are in a good place to be able to remember to spin it nicely.
