12/8/10 Life Isn't Always Fair

First, thanks for the notes noticing I've been away. I started today's blog just wanting to post some Christmas decoration pics, but I've found I need to begin first with letting some things go. I'm realizing that I've probably been working hard keeping myself too busy, because I didn't want to talk about, or even think about it anymore this (maybe I've been avoiding coming here because I knew I'd have to)…I've lost to much sleep already. I've been trying to uplift myself with Christmas (I LOVE Christmas). As an optimist, I'm not a worrier and can always find the bright side of things, but when it comes to my kids being hurt...it's a different story.

I'm still embroiled in the several craptastic life things I mentioned earlier. One of them took a turn last week and I'm just realizing now that I've been avoiding really dealing with my feelings about it.

Anyway...sorry this post was a downer. I AM having fun getting ready for Christmas, crafting (I made a whole mini tree this weekend), and decorating (except for the d@mn Christmas lights that I've spent day's restringing this year...I swear they are just taunting me…flickering a new line out each day, but who the heck likes dealing with the lights?!)...I'll post some pics next! As DD said again this year 'It looks like someone threw-up Christmas on our tree and all over our house!' I'm hoping to about finish the decorating today and we've got DS2's band concert tonight…Fa-la-la-la-la!

My heart goes out to you and your family. Nothing is worse than when someone messes with our children. I will pray that you get good news at the specialist.

Praying for good news - and an email is on it's way.

I understand the shift - just nipped that issue in the bud myself. Is a fill an option? Waiting until January might be wise...and then again...it's so hard to know!

There are few pains harder to endure then the pain of when our children are hurt. I am praying for you and your family my Friend. (((hugggssss))) to you. We are here for you, always....

BG, I am so sorry to hear about your son. I am really surprised you cannot sue the parents for damages since their child is a minor and they are legally libel. Even if their insurance doesn't cover it - because it was an accident - they are personally libel. Not a great option. On the other hand, sometimes that is the only way you can get someone to accept responsibility.

Hang in there. I miss seeing your posts. Need all the inspiration I can get! :-)

Things will get better, I'll be thinking of you during this hard time. You will get through it!

Miss you BG

"telling yourself hummus is high-protein is just an excuse to eat a high-calorie-for-the-amount-of-protein slider! "

Can you stitch that on a pillow for me? LOVE top you! D

Craptastic seems like an understatement as to what you are going through. I am so sorry and hope you get the good news you deserve.

I will tell you .. that you are far more restrained than I could ever be... wrong my kids... and now you have to deal with me (especially physically).. I totally understand the hesitation to not want to do harm to your sons friends and relationships.. but do keep in mind that college friends are just that.. if this harm carries forward to something he needs to live with.. then the "friend" needs to be held accountable.. I realize this is my opinion...and you are there living this.. do you know if the "friend" has a history of this behavior?
I totally love the term "operator error" how appropriate .. cause that is exactly what it is. Hang in there.. smile and try to enjoy the season

I'm praying for the good news from the specialist and am hoping (yes hoping - and I'm not a sue kind of person either) there is a way for you to sue them for damages. I'm going to be asking around to see what I can learn about the general subject. Good luck to you and I'm sending fairy dust and prayers your way.

hoping for good news for you and your son at the specialist - and my sincere apologies that you are going thru this at all! I just dont understand the lack of responsibility shown...however, I am a firm believer in karma.
Wishing you and the family a wonderful holiday season

The betrayal of a friend is tough (or someone you thought was your friend). It's a grieving process for sure and must be hard to watch your child struggle with these feelings. Sorry you are going through this right now.
