another long day

Amber got up and took Rusty into work, because once she is done with that she will have to go straight to school. I am glad that I did not have to make that drive this morning.

I did however make some vegetable soup, so we will see how that turns out. I did not follow the directions all the way. I used the vegetables that I had on hand and I only used fresh. I also cut up some left over steak to throw in. So in my soup went: onion, carrots, potatoes, and spinach. I hope everyone enjoys the soup.

I am so glad that we have changed time. I love the summer. The long dark days of winter just make me want to scream! I could never live in Alaska. For me the longer days mean more time outside and warmer days. I can't wait to head down to the lake for some fun in the sun.

I called my mother last night. The conversation was civil and I did not even go anywhere subjects that would cause an argument. My mother brought up hell child once and I just changed the subject. No sense in beating a dead horse.

What my mother does not know is that I am talking to my former brother in law. So I know all that is going on. I am waiting to find out when hell child will be moving in with my mom. It is easier for me to go through him and get straight information then to listen to my negative run everyone down before she answers a simple question.

Yes, Paula I agree shame on that marine. I have been thinking about not quilting for the marines any more. It is not that it is to hard, it the fact that I know the quilts are expected. I use to love doing to quilts and now I actually hear complaining. They are not the right color or they are not long enough. I am just sick of it. It is much easier to help people that I don't know. How sad is that?

There are times when I feel as if my heart has gotten so hard and cold. Rusty and I are not rich people. We do what we have to do just to get by. I try to help people and do nice tings for people, but when I ask for help I get smacked down. For me I know I am getting to the point of no return. I am almost to the point of not even wanting other people at my house because some people take us for granted.

Nikki and Chris are back from winter camp and they said that they had good time and then they went to bed. Nikki has no voice left! I know that they went snow boarding and had snowball fights but that is all I know right now.

Once Amber gets home from school I am heading down to base to help out a friend. Her husband screwed up and is now on restriction for 45 day's and after that the marine is going to the field for a month. So this wife is packing up her house, putting everything in storage and going home. I can't blame her. Her husband treats her and the baby like shit anyway.

I am so going to miss them. I am not going to be able to see and hold the baby for most of the summer. I hate this marine for being an ass hole. Because of his stupid actions I am going to miss my dear friend and the baby!

Hmm, well I am sorry about that poor wife having to pack up and leave. I did that when my ex was in the service and would get too mean. I am afraid that people come to expect what people do for them, and don't stop to think anymore about how really generous they are being when they don't have to be. Oh well, in my opinion, you have to stop doing for the ungrateful. Life is too short for that. I know you, you will continue to be generous and giving along the way, it is just in your nature, but some deserve it more than others. Gerry

I don't have enough hours in a day, so I'm missing that hour. Sometimes I wonder if those in the military understand how much stress and hardship it puts on their partner? You would think while they were with them they would appreciate them more. I saw Skye go through hell for a few days worrying over her husband when she found out one of the men in his co. close to him was shot dead.

I do know it takes a special kind of partner to wait for you. Speaking of which that must be you! (Hugs)Indigo

You are being taken for granted, you know. So give them a wake-up call, and tell them that you are only quilting for people you don't know now, unless you just get a bee in your bonnet to quilt one for them. And then once in a while, when one of them isn't expecting it, maybe you could give them one to see what happens. Anyway! How are you? I'm sorry about your friend having to go back home. I would too, though. Some guys just don't deserve a good wife and child. Hopefully he'll wise up before it's too late.

make sure to call me if I can help with anything. I'm glad Nikki/Chris enjoyed camp. I'm also glad you are talking with your former BIL to get the real scope of what's going on with your neice. I'm sorry about the unappreciative marines; I think its sad that they can't be grateful for what is given them. Seems perhaps they weren't raised with manners.

again call if I can do anything

Maybe you should continue to make quilts but give them to an organization. I know we have a Battered Women's Shelter here in town. And a lot of them have little kids...they would love a smaller version of quilts. Maybe not so much to use as a blanket but just something to snuggle with. It's not right that the Marines don't appreciate what you do for them. Sorry that's happening...Linda in cold & snowy Washington state
