saying our peace

I spent most of yesterday cleaning up the house. I got the big stuff done, so I am o.k. with that.

Rusty called me yesterday and we went and had lunch. We both very calmly said our peace and moved on. I knew if I waited long enough we could speak with out yelling and saying that that might slip out and be hurtful.

I will be going to ball on Saturday. Not because I really want to, but because it is important Rusty. For one night I can be Mrs. Gtsgt James R. Nelson USMC retired, disabled American Veteran. For one night I can let him be in the light while I stand in the shadows.

Yesterday my father in law came to visit me. He always comes to visit me when I have a lot on my mind. Yes, everyone I talked to my dead father in law yesterday. He gave me good advice and even picked out some good music on the computer.

I went and got my mom from the airport. That was a long ass evening. I swear everyone in San Diego was on the roads yesterday. We had a nice chat on the drive.

Today we have not done much. We are just hanging out around the house.

I put on a pot of chili and made some bread. Later on tonight I will take some down to Rusty. ....Rusty will setting up for the ball, so I know that he will appreciate the food. Not to mention that he love chili and bread.

I loaded some of the pictures that the girls took at the ball. I need to load a few more and then I will post the pictures. For the most part the girls had a great time. It was their first big formal event away from us. They also go to go to Bullhead city Arizona. I think that is cool because they have never been to Arizona. That is one more place they can check off their list.

Ryan has a dentist appointment on Monday. I really hoping that Rusty will be able to take him. I have a feeling that this will not be the last appointment. His teeth are so bad.

I am so amazed at how dull yesterday was. Oh well I guess I should be happy that it was a dull day.

I'll bet that chili is yummy.  I'm sorry it has to be this way between you and Rusty but I'm glad you said your peace peaceably.

I'd love to see the pictures of the ball.

Sometimes a big pot of Chili does wonders for the soul. As woman it seems it always falls on our shoulders to be the peace keepers in the family. I hope you and Rusty can come to an understanding that will benefit you both in the long run, not just one or the other. Your in my thoughts and prayers on the smoke hon! (Hugs) Indigo

I do find that the visits come when there is a special reason. Like it was time for my ex to come south for the winter, as he nearly always did to Phoenix where all his children live, well Mesa and Phoenix when he was alive. I always felt my mother-in-law around when I was married to Dean, trying to make things better if she could.  I don't know how anyone so tied up as you are with the soldiers who must go to war could keep from talking to the dead.  There are just too dang many of them dying when they are young!  Gerry
