Positive Outlook

I’m posting this to remind you that no matter how bad your day has been there is always something positive to find.

I know that some days are harder than others but you will find that little bit of good.

Yesterday was hard for me but I found my positive.

I kept telling myself

No matter how bad the kid’s act up they will be better tomorrow

And guess What? I was right, both kids are more calm today and not angry. As a matter of fact we all are much better today.

Yesterday our son had to get up for a therapy session which he absolutely did not want to get up for because he was sleepy and he was acting up the rest of the day which put me in a bad mood.

Then no one got any sleep last night which was bad but it has had no negative affects on us, so another positive.

So please look for the positive in your day today.



Update On My Husband

Update On My Husband

I just realized I never updated y’all on my husband so here it is.

I went and picked him up from the jailhouse on July 31st. He got 10 years probation off in 5 with good behavior or something like that anyway. I’m not familiar with how these things work so I’m just guessing. He also got community service.

He got out by pleading guilty even though he says he didn’t do it and he also said he has to testify against my cousin. Yes I know if any of my family members read this it’s going to cause problems but it’s not like I get invited to anything so it doesn’t matter. Me and my little family celebrate holidays alone and that’s the way I like it.

I was seriously going to leave him in jail but with my son being schizophrenic I couldn’t. He was in and out of the hospital 3 times while his dad was in jail. It was not good for me nor my daughter to see him like that, especially my daughter.

Things are not going well at all now though. Money is disappearing again just like before. He stays gone with his friends and expects me to pay for everything. His mom sent us some money for Thanksgiving and he claims he used it to get the truck fixed but that hasn’t happened yet even though he claims he already paid the person for the job.

I don’t know what to do. I have no support system to help me and no place to go. I feel like I’m stuck living with a stranger. He says he loves me but he doesn’t act like it. I wish my mom was still alive. I don’t have a car or a way to pay for one either.

I’m sorry for the sob story but as always if you enjoyed reading this please like, share and comment. You advice is always welcome as long as you’re not being ugly.
