Did you ever wonder if you were totally losing your mind? This has been a fairly stressful week for me. Monday starts with hitting a deer on my way to work and tearing up my little silver car. Tuesday finds me over-sleeping because my NEW clock has two alarms on it and I set the wrong one. Wednesday is grand and hubby takes me out to eat that night. Thursday my second car starts making a noise that is bad on the way to work but horrible on my way home. I stop at the grocery store on the way home for a few things and I’m thinking about baby brothers birthday, the wrecked car, the wonderful night out the night before and I walk back to where I thought I parked my car when I got to the store and can’t find it. I think to myself, “Okay, you’re in the wrong row and I walk up the next row, no car. ” I go back to the row I thought I was initially in and start to panic. I’m thinking, I have to go back in the store and let someone know that my car has been stolen and as I start back down the row I see my Blazer and then it dawns on me, YOU idiot, the car is at home wrecked and you drove the Blazer. I am so relieved!!! First, I found the lost car! Second, I didn’t call the police and make a spectacle of myself!! Third, you didn’t make a fool of yourself in front of anyone in the store or the parking lot!!! Fourth, NO ONE around you at the moment knows your losing your mind!!!! So, I unload my groceries, put the grocery cart back in the rack, get in my BLAZER and take a deep breath. Then I remembered my daughter is having a rough week at work so I called her to maybe make her smile. SMILE, she laughed hysterically and we both enjoyed my senior moment. I asked her to give me another chance and not make reservations for me in the “psyche-center” yet and to at least wait and give me another chance for a night’s rest and hopefully sanity will return!!
Country Girl Through & Through
I'm a country girl from the western part of Virginia in a small community of New Castle/Craig County. I've lived in Craig all my life-eighteen years with my parents and siblings and forty + years with my wonderful husband.
We have two children, a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, all of which we love very much. We live on a 500 acre+ farm that has been in my husbands family for over 200 years. We are raising beef cattle, chickens, rabbits and a couple dogs.. We grow pretty much all we eat or harvest from the farm and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I love to create, craft, quilt, read, write, decorate, crochet, candlewick, bake, bow hunt, cook, garden, farm animals and walking/hunting in the woods. I love sharing our home with family and friends.
I hope you enjoy the posts that I enter on my blog and hopefully will be helpful and/or fun to all that read it.
