Day 376 A very sad story.

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Tessa is one of my sisters children. She had 3. 2 of them have not made very good choices and have no contact with the family but Tessa seems to think she needs to make up for that. Since both her mom and dad are gone. My other sister is also gone as is one of my brothers. So that only leaves the 3 of us.

With a little space between Monday and today I've come to accept that she is just going to have to let it go. We all rarely get what we want. And sometimes we get things we don't want. I didn't want mom cats but I'm taking car of them.

As for my little financial problem....I understand your classes and have even tried some things like that when I lived in a big city. But here in the middle of nowhere not much like that happens. I did manage to scrape together enough cash to get thru the first hurdle that needs to be settled right now. As for what I'm going to do when the carpenter wants the next payment I have no idea. My monthly income is sufficient for my life. I can pay my bills and even spend a little extra on fabric or yarn but there really isn't room for problems. After I paid my taxes in April, then I to get the dog a hair cut in May, tabs in June and those all seem to eat up almost all my little extra.

At least after getting even part of my problem settled I think I can sleep. I'm going to have to be really careful my demons almost got the best of me earlier this week. I can't let that happen.

    My "nuclear" family is down to 3 people and it is very lonely, especially at the holidays when I am no longer setting out service for 16. Over the years I had collected that much Spode in the Christmas Tree pattern with all the serving pieces. Now it just sits forlornly in the pie safe from year to year. It's not that I don't have nieces and nephews and cousins; it's just that they are all into their own lives. I'm proud for them but I miss them.

    I'm so glad you been able to accept that Tessa will just need to let it go - just like YOU did. Would it have been nice if it had turned out differently? Absolutely. But it didn't, and there's nothing that can change it now. Fretting about things that can't be changed is a waste of energy. As I saw on another SparkFriend's page today, "One day passes WITHOUT happiness, you will lose one day. One day passes WITH happiness and then you gain one day." No need to waste days of happiness on things in the past.
