Random Tuesday Thoughts - No Thanks, Plate Is Already Full

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Random Tuesday Thoughts post.  If you'd like, you can participate at Stacy Uncorked.

Most people get a few days off from work to relax and rejuvenate.  Didn't quite happen that way with me.  Had five days off work and was almost happy to return, just to get some "away" time.  Then I returned...

My oldest daughter turned 18 years old Saturday.  It only took her one day later to announce she wanted to move in with her boyfriend.  I could say a million and one things about it, but I'm just the mom.

My uncle passed away Thursday.  My nephew was kind enough to drive me and my mom to the funeral.  It was nice to see extended family.  Just wish it would've been under different circumstances. 

I don't normally get car sick but I prayed to God that my nephew would forgive me if I upchucked all over his van on the ride to the funeral.  It was a five hour ride up and a five hour ride back, all in one day.  Not a problem.  UNLESS you're in the boothills of Missouri.  I've never seen such winding, hilly, curvy roads in all my life.  It felt like I was on a roller coaster ride from hell.

On the plus side, on the way to the funeral, I was able to view a garage that my grandpa had built many moons ago.  It's been standing for 54 years.  Little sentimental moment for me.

My ex has text me for the last three days, every five hours like clockwork.  He apparently doesn't understand that a certified letter for court means that you have to go to court and THAT's where matters get settled.  Not by text messages.  Geez, and why did I EVER divorce him!

To make it a super ending from my days off work, I witness a wreck.  Guy gets hit and suspect vehicle takes off.  I'm first on scene to the victim and a witness to the whole mess.

Enough of my nagging and moaning.  How was your week?!

Sometimes I almost wish I had gone back to work so I could have some 'away' time... ;)

Oh man, I can see the whole 18 and moving in with boyfriend mode with Princess Nagger in about 9 years...I'm so not looking forward to that.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your uncle. ((HUGZ!!)) It is a bummer when sometimes the only time you can see extended family is at funerals.

How cool you got a picture of a garage your grandpa built 54 years ago - definitely a sentimental moment.

It would drive me crazy if an ex were texting me every 5 hours like clockwork. No wonder you divorced him. ;)

Not fun being a witness to a wreck - especially a hit-an-run. Sheesh! You've had quite the week, haven't you? I'd say your plate is definitely more than full.

Our baby will be turning 18 next month. It doesn't seem possible and yet it's upon us so soon.

Don't ever visit Tennessee, more specifically east Tennessee because our rural roads are very curvy.

I sometimes wish there was a way to block people from texting my phone....

Have a great Tuesday!
