This weeks S.H.I.T. list comic was at the request of @rustilyn who just happens to be the owner of this here meme that I have fun with. I really should come up with something funny to put in these, oh well have a great weekend!
As some of you may know I have been trying to make some huge changes in my life. While I wish I was writing to tell you that I have been wildly successful and everything is just peachy, I can not say any of that. What I can say it that baby steps are being made. I am still working with the whole calendaring my day. There are a million and one things that I “need” to do. I am slowly working in to a habit of taking care of the bulk of my on-line stuff in the mornings before work, but sometimes 4:30am just doesn’t happen. But I have not given up hope.
On a positive note I am able to see my craft area for the first time in about 5 weeks, so this means that I can start crafting again, I and getting thing for Fat Dragon’s shop.
Good luck with any changes that you are trying to make in your world.
As we have been going about our lives in this time of great family distress, I well really we have noticed that we are not adults. Now before you look at your screen all weird and say “huh?” yes be are both over the age of 21 so legally we are “adults” but that could not be more wrong. And the time this discrepancy between grown up and adult rears it’s really not helpful in any way head is when you lose a parent/ parental influence.
With our situations this has been a long journey for all of us most of all MIL. Even with it just started at the end of July due to the heavy stress that we have all been under it seems like this has been going on for much longer, and on the flip side this time has been too short, now that we are nearing the end, funny how that works.
Back to the topic at hand, we grow up we get out of school, get jobs, make money, maybe by a house and/or nice car, get married and maybe have a kid or two. Those are all “adult” things to do we would agree to that, right? Those things do not really make you an adult they make you a grown up. When you face the loss of the people who have been there your whole life from the very moment you existed that is when you can be crowned an adult, that person can be some one you think of as a parent, this may not be the only road to adulthood but it seems to be a pretty universal one.
If you are lucky you are older when this happens, the loss of that anchor to the past the one person who was always there even if things where not all rainbows and sunshine between you. Or some one who care about you the way parent should. Take a look around are you an adult, do you know some one who is? I bet if you look really close you will see the difference between the two.
