First entry

June 26th, 2006 at 10:08 pm

I have been reading evryones blog for a few weeks now and I have to admit I found the idea of a personal blog fascinating.At this point Im not sure why but maybe with this blog I will find out.I chose tonight to start because Im feeling alittle down.Today was my birthday & nobody remebered. Ok Im not trying to have a pity party or anything.
My hubby has all his family.My mother & father are passed & I guess I feel like he should put more effort into this kind of thing.Oh Im not missing any presents to be honest Ive never really believed in that much.It seems you can always find things to admire about every race,religion & nationality.For instance Thats one thing I admire about a certain
religion(dare I say the name?) they dont recognize holidays etc..An most holidays are just an attempt to sell stuff.
I found
a kindred spirit today although I have yet to meet her.I was turning in to my neighborhood & there is a hotel.The corner room has a little fence around it.
The yard is teeny tiny.It was starting to rain & I saw a women run out and get her clothes hanging on the fence , thats when I realized the weeds in her yard was a garden.Go Girl!
I recently moved to a different state & my grocery bill has almost tripled & I cant find the leak.Its driving me insane.
I was unable to bring my pantry with me so we widdled it down to nothing before we moved.
I have always been frugal or cheap.
My dad was born in 1919 so my dad & mom saw some hard times & grew up really poor.I had a wonderful child hood they taught me great things. One of those things is that money will not make you
happy.An that is a very true statement.

    Welcome! And happy belated birthday!

    My parents were born in 1913 and 1915 -- both are gone. They went through hard times in the Depression and never really got ahead. But I, like you, have many wonderful memories.

    Welcome to the site, I know how you feel, my entire family is gone, I have no next of kin,so birthdays are sort of depressing to me too. We don't do presents and I don't miss them either. My father was born in 1899 and my mother in1907.
    I do want to wish you a happy birthday and I am glad you have joined us!!

    Happy birthday. I do have a sister, but my mother passed away in 2003 and my father in 2005...so I'm in similar straits to you. Keep on writing!
