some people

So all day yesterday I sat on our bed and knitted. I did not even get dressed! Everyone kept asking me what was wrong.

How many times do I have to say that nothing is wrong. I just did not want to be with anyone. I do not want to sit and watch old westerns, I do not want to go shoot pool, and no I am NOT going to clean up the kitchen since I did not make the mess.

I am so frustrated! I finally got even more blunt and told them that when they do something that I might enjoy to please let me know.

So today, everyone is at the air show and I am so happy not to be there.

Maybe I am just being stubbern, but I am sick of doing what everyone else wants to do, so I am not doing it anymore.

Today I went and got a pattern for some slippers, so I am going to try to make some slippers for our oldest daughter. I hope they turn out cute.

There you go! I remember on time when the kids were about 10 & 13 and no one were doing what they were suppose to be their chores. I went on strike! I made a sign...put it out in the front yard...and omagawd if any of their friends seen went on for about a week, when they ran out of clean clothes and the dishes were all dirty etc...! LOL Then is when everyone realized what "I" really did do and how much I did! The sign in the yard alone was great and I thought that would do was close, but they are as stubborn as me! :o) Good going! :o)

Its Ok, you need time too.  Being a mother and wife is sometimes a thankless job as they do take us for granted.  (They don't mean to, but we are always there for them and they just expect it)

Hope you enjoyed your time alone. I know how you're feeling. Sometimes we just need to stop and do what we want to do -- like being alone!

I just read through your comments and your friend Lisa's was great.  Sometimes I would like to go on strike too.  I wouldn't be able to handle it though.  My boys would wear the dirty clothes and not give a shit.  Boys are gross.  I mean...really!  I laid in bed for 2 days also.  Yesterday, I showered and got right back into my flannel nightgown...very sexy!!  hahahaha.  I was supposed to study, but drifting in and out of sleep was much nicer.  I'm paying for it today.  Whenever I get too much sleep, I get a headache.  Go figure?  Hmmmmm.   You are a battleship, Kelli.  I have never seen a woman do so much, except for my mom.  I'll give her props.  I have always felt lazy next to you.  You have definitely done 60 years worth of stuff in only 30-something.
Love ya,

Good for you.  Sometimes you just need some time alone, or to put your foot down.  You don't have to always do what they want to do.

Stopped at this entry this morning, because my attention was caught by the remark, "I don't want to shoot pool."  Don't often run into a pool shooter, but I have even gotten tired of that, just after Doc bought us brand new black pool sticks with a tasteful red flame going down the side.  The complex moved snack machines into the pool room, and ruined the ambience.  That is one thing.  I didn't know until then that the ambience matters!   Now Pierre was the pool shooter, right up until he couldn't walk anymore, a month before he died.  You probably badly need some R and R.!  A knitter, too.  I take note of your comments to my journal and thanks.   Gerry
