Brain dead


I think my brain is on overload.  The last two days have been filled with stress and I just don't get it.   Sometimes family can drive you just about crazy.  I'm not talking about my kids either, cuz they do thier own little number on me, but I am talking about my brother and sister.  I still am not sure how the whole situation spiraled out of control so quickly.  But one thing led to another very quickly and harsh words were spoken, unfortunatly to me.  I didnt' deal well with it.  I am not sure how we are going to mend this one but it is going to take awhile.  Maybe, if ever.  Not sure at this point.  My brother is a very stubborn man and I am not sure it will ever get worked out.  I have cried for the last 24 hours about this and I can't cry anymore.  Who knows what will happen.  I just know that I am exhausted from the whole ordeal and am left wondering what the hell happened to make this all so crazy.
I wish I had some happier things to talk about, oh wait I do have one really happy thing.  I made another 247.00 at the bucket drive this weekend!  THat did make me very happy to get that email telling me that.  I am very excited about going to San Franciso for this marathon.  We are leaving on Oct. 15 and we are staying for a week.  We have lots of things planned for the week.  It will be fun and I am looking forward to getting away that is for sure. 
I am worn out I am going to go to bed and hopefully sleep much better than I did last night.
I do have one question for you all though.
How many pages do you continue to read into a book when it just isn't getting it for you?  I am on page 106 and am not sure I like this book yet?  Do I give up on it?  Just throw it out?  (that seems a so hard for me to do!!)  Or do I keep reading and hope it gets better???

Just take a break from the family troubles and let things simmer down.  As far as the book is concerned, you have invested yourself into over a  hundred pages so I'd give it a little more time, it just may surprise you.  Take care and have a happy hump day tomorrow!

(((Linda))) sorry about your family problems :( never fun to deal with; I hope it does resolve itself and work itself out for the good of all

that's wonderful with the money made on the bucket drive! thank you Lord!

45 pages or less for a book; pretty much after the first 2 chapters, if I'm not hooked, I'm done with it

((((Linda)))) take care of yourself; I do hope you get a good night's sleep

It does hurt when family arguments occur.  Hope everything will work out for you and them .  Time often heals bad situations.  I would have given up on the book after 50 pages.  Sometimes I find out by then that I've already read the book too !
Hope you got some rest.  Have a better Wednesday!  'On Ya' - ma
