Jan 23- Whew..

I think sometimes we have to have changes in our lives in order to know ourselves better.
Admittedly as we get older we also get more set in our ways. After living alone for sometime the adjustment to living with others , especially with teens has been a jolt. I find myself thinking..
Am I that person..that one that must have things just this way..that item right there and etc.
I never was..but I also realize that having things in some set order and place helps us feel comfortable. To say there is a bit of an up tick of things not being where you expect them to be..that things will be where you never expect them to be and somethings just seem to disappear, until you set the teens to searching for them, is a change. It isn't all bad or crazy..but sometimes I miss my old more settled life. Then I think that I often would sit and think ..this is boring..well it mostly ain't boring anymore..heee hee! And the girls can be a hoot at times!!
Today I did get my room cleared, things put up and found a place even if temporary for all of it. There is room to turn around without tripping over yourself now..hurrah!! Molly is not at all happy with the new situation. She could before step on the cedar chest reach out and get the back of my chair to get my attention. No cedar chest and the bed is too far for her to stretch and reach me. Result..sharp barks of ..Hey pay attention to me!! That lil ole gal don't give up!
I am contently tired now. My room does not look like a tornado blazed thru it. I did find a place for everything and managed to box up a big box of ..it's gotta go stuff! There are more drawers to go thru..more things to consider but for today I wanna give me a big gold star for getting this done!
The flock was happy this AM as I sat out there and visited with them , soaking up some sun..getting my Vit D dose for the day. Twas really very pleasant and sunny. That changed midday to breezy and chilly..now tonight it is headed to ..gonna be cold folks!!
Time to shuffle pups...give good night treats and see about getting a nights rest..for I know tomorrow will bring with it the surprises of the day!
Good night ya'al...rest well and as always....Stay Safe!!

    I think you are being more than fair about this. You are an angel to this family in fact. This is YOUR home. I grew up knowing it was my parents home and their rules. It is common courtesy when you are a guest in someone's house that you respect their wishes. Especially young people. We raised our son this way and everyone comments on his compassion for others and manners and neatness, even teachers. Change is great if it is for the better. Living in chaos makes people physically ill. If I were living with you, I would be making things better for YOU, not me.

    OH MAN when I have Roman here,, LOL WHO KNOWS where things will end up! But I just think of the FUN he's having and I am okay with that. If the 3 of us lived together, I'd likely have a lock on my door for when I wasn't home. But who knows. I've as you know with my Gkids parents and LOVED being with the kids. the parents turned out not so much.

    Kids are sooo funny!! They were also teens, and well in my mind teens are really 2 year olds again in SO MANY WAYS!! They THROW such a FIT if they do not get their own way, they can SCREAM when not happy, but they are also mini adults just trying to work things out that make sense, it's a precious time that doesn't last long and WHOOSH soon they are out on their own. So I totally enjoyed watching Sarah grow up and being in her life, and the GKids in CO yes for the most part (99.9%) LOVED that too!!

    I too, want to clean things out,, faster now.

    I "am that person" at heart, but I know with others in the house things will never be where I think they belong. LOL Especially with Isaac -- no thought for where things came from to be put back. LOL

    It's an ever challenge between 'I rather am alone and have everything set properly, time for myself and my pets' vs. 'kids, teenager, children of all ages make life noisy and joyous, and it's necessary for our wellbeing?' I really don't know what to choose but a balance between those two sides. Molly emoticon , the other little doggies emoticon Sweet dreams!
