Random Ramblings......

Thou Shall Not Covet........

The 10th Commandment applies to the blogosphere too!!

In the blogosphere we see glimpses into the lives of other people. It is easy to get caught up in the whole --- I wish I had a cuter blog, more readers, could do crafts, could decorate, have a better house, could write fabulous stories, get more comments....... the list goes on

Ask yourself --- Who is your blog for? Yourself? Your Family? Your Friends? What is the purpose?

Be happy with who you are and what you have to share....

Thank you......

Thank you everyone who took the time to read and comment about our adoption story. It was fun writing it and it felt good to share. Though these posts I was able to meet some other great adoptive families and also a few people with Heart Babies and VCFS.

Update on Grandma......

She is in a nursing home right now. She is so mad and she really wants to go home. She has been trying to recruit us all to move in with her to take care of her. It is truly heart breaking - she has a very small 2 bedroom house and she would totally go even more crazy if one of us moved our families in with her. The kids would send her over the edge. She needs full time around the clock care.

She has this thing that is called Sundowners -- it is something associated with Alzheimer's. She is pretty lucid during the day but at night she gets totally confused.

I don't want to get old........

Great giveaway!!!!

Run over to Nicole's house and enter this contest for a beautiful chandelier!!!!

I wish your grandmother well, and no I don't want to get old either. My own grandmother lives in a nursing home and has for several years now. She just recently had a hospital stay. Keep us posted.

My Mom went through what your grandma is facing right now. It's truly heartbreaking, isn't it? I liked your strong, independent post--I'm feeling pretty good about myself today!

I feel for your grandma. In 2006, my mother almost died because she was living alone and neglecting herself. She was lucky though because at the time she needed the most help, I was there (as a stay-at-home mom) to take her in.

I could not agree with you more about the Blogosphere. Amen!

I hope everything works out well for your Grandma. I don't want to get old either...but I don't want to die either.....so I guess I'll just let this one play out....;)
