Memorial Day

Its been a few days since I put in an actual entry with things I've done.  I actually haven't done that much.  Work and trying to keep up with the household chores.  Thats next to impossible with the kids who say I treat them like "slaves" when I ask them to do something for me.  I wanted them to pick up an area full of sticks so that I could mow and everything was done half assed.  Anyhow...  I took Sarah and her friend to the Memorial Day parade yesterday.  It was a very small parade.  Over as soon as it started.  Next month is the Flag Day parade and thats always great.  I'll have to bring my camera and get some pics.  Later on in the day we went to the benefit for Stephen.  He died last year, three days after his baby, my nephew was born.  It was a benefit to help raise money for his funeral and gravestone.  He has been buried already, but expenses have not been paid.  There was a small turnout but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.  I even danced a little!  Not much planned for today.  Sarah is going over to her Dad's for a little while.  I talked to him twice since Friday and he has been drunk both times and trys to deny it.  Who does he think he is fooling?  I'm gonna get him one of these days.  I'm gonna catch him drunk with my little girl and raise hell.  Ok enough ranting.  I hope everyone has a good Memorial Day.  Remember its not all about cooking out and the start of summer.  Its remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

I do hope Dave doesn't get drunk around Sarah any more. I hope the benefit raised some money for Stephens funeral, it was so sad when it happened. Have a good weekend. Jeannette xx   http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

Wouldn't it be nice if David could wake up and see that he needs help with his drinking? If not for himself, then at least for his little girl....Lord, does he want her to remember her child-hood with daddy the way he is now???
Hope you have a great weekend Linda! You deserve one.
God bless you,
love ya,
