my messy blog site

January 24, 2012 Leave a comment

I was just updating email addresses and looked at my blog and what a mess, I guess I need to spend some time figuring this out and how to make it look nice. I admire those that can blog and it looks great. This explains why mine is called ramblings since this is what I do. Bear with me if you happen to follow my post, but I can’t imagine many do. If someone has some pointers or can point me in the correct direction to go let me know, I am open for suggestions on this.

Holidays Bah Humbug

November 26, 2010 Leave a comment

Once again the holidays are upon us and I have to get through the month.  I am not sure what it is but I go into depression every year at this time. Maybe it is the anxiety that comes with the commercialism that goes with this time of year and the pressure to buy, buy, buy.  There has been a number of Christmases where our kids only got a few things and we said we would not exchange gifts mainly because we didn’t have the money for it.  I remember how sad I was the 2nd Christmas Ben and I were out in New Jersey. It was just the 2 of us no family and no close friends to spend the day with and he was only 3 so how much did he understand what day it was.  I almost didn’t even have a tree, but I did pick up a little Norwich Pine to put Ben’s one little $3.00 gift under.  Yes he didn’t know what it cost and he enjoyed it for as long as it lasted, but I knew and I felt guilty that I couldn’t get him more.  We have had a few good years but most have been small and barely any gifts, in fact last we almost didn’t have one at all but nice surprise from one of our favorite Bishop’s made  a little Christmas happen in our house. This year again is starting to look the same as we watch everything around us crumble.   I am sure no one will read this but I do this for me to put my feelings down.   I know we are to think about what we are grateful for and to remember the reason we truly celebrate Christmas is the birth of our Savior, but how do you make that more important with all the hoopla of getting gifts.

Stake Conference

October 31, 2010 Leave a comment

Tonight I actually was able to attend an Adult Session of Stake Conference which it has been years since I have been able to do that.  The theme was how we can make our selves more spiritually stronger.  We need to be prepared, study our scriptures and be spiritually and temporally self-sufficient before we can serve others.   I need to work on being better prepared which includes studying my scriptures more and just being gratefully what I have and not what I have lost. I have a lot of work to do.

i just dont get why some people are so rude?

May 27, 2010 Leave a comment

Our neighbor has been rude and mean since the first day we moved in.  Ben was only 6 and he was playing in the stones they had around a big tree and she came out and yelled at him to get out of there.   Well we have managed to not say anything to them if at all possible to avoid any conflicts.  The next summer Ed was cutting down some dead trees up behind our house when this not so friendly neighbor came running out of her house and up the hill to see what he was doing and of course to yell at him and tell him he better not be cutting down any of her trees ( like if they are dead who cares).   Then one some summer we decided to change how far out the retain wall stuck so we could put our pool up on the spot where the weed bed and been. Well a friend drove his bobcat up the hill next to our house and then next thing we know the city is knocking our door to see what we are doing. Oh you have to have a permit to move over 90 cubic ft of dirt.   Last summer we repainted our house a light yellow, which our neighbor told us they didn’t like the color, who cares she is not paying for the paint.    This evening was the kicker, we have dirt in the driveway so we are parked on the street until we get it put where it needs to go. Ed pulled up to the curb just past our mailbox and they came flying out saying that he couldn’t park in front of their property, what a bunch of bull.  Like you can tell anyone that can’t park on a public street just because it is in front of your house.  Oh and again they said we should repaint our house because it looks like crap but at least we finished painting our house and not part of it like their’s, it is 2 different colors .   Didn’t know I had to get my neighbors permission on what color I painted my house.  Ok I am done with my rant of the rude neighbor.   Now to get the 10 ft fence.
