I don't know how time goes by so fast and I seem to get so little done. I keep working and keep paying bills, but everything else seems to be on a 'to do' list that I don't have the energy or time to get to. Maybe it will get better but I am not betting any money on it.
I am battling with some autoimmune disease issues and chronic anemic problems, joint pain and always being tired. The old house projects are so far behind schedule, the sewing and knitting never gets done and the house needs a lot of cleaning. But I do manage to get laundry done and usually put away.
Jake has finally graduated college, history for his major and is working on going on to Army officer training, He has worked hard these past 4 years, both to support himself and with his classes, and a very long drive back and forth for the past 2 years for those classes. Now, he's moving towards the next steps in his life and his future.
Ben is living here, takes care of things that need done and takes care of me on the days I seem to need someone to make sure I eat or get to bed. He doesn't seem to have a direction or drive to chase much for his life and his future.
I don't know what my life will be in the future, but I know I will make the decisions and it will be what I need and want far more than what someone else wants. I spent way too many years of my life living to suit and please someone else and being often treated badly for the effort. So, now it's my funny little life, in my funny old house, working my labor job in a pork processing plant and being the person that works best for me.
Now, I will post this and at least I have managed to get that done, along with a lot of updates to Windows...and the laundry.
Another work week to start and get through, another city utility bill to get paid tomorrow after work, the small things that are parts of my normal little life.
