Starting a blog about negativity and depressing situations is not my intentions. Finding humor in our trials and tribulations allows us to retain at least a small portion of our sanity. Without a smile or a chuckle here and there, my world turns morbid, my mood swings from angry, sad, hopeless and angry again. This blog is for those as myself, who need a "Lift Me Up", laughter, or just a simple smile.
I have recently found myself in an awkward position because I had to leave my apartment and move in with my mother in law (my hubby, my son and myself). First and foremost, I will not say it's been a breeze but it has been a blessing because as everyone says " It could be worse!". I'd like to say to those people who want to judge and jump down everyone's throat because they're bored with their lives, I am grateful that I am not homeless but if you want to judge others let me tell you this you never know what's put someone where they are today. You never know what people are thinking let alone feeling when they are put into situations they cannot control. On that note, I find my in-laws hilarious at the same time annoying.
When your father in law tells you everyday, "Don't vorry bout it, ju get ju place when ju can...ju no bodder me" your response always wants to be..(or my response anyway) "Well ju bodder me vit jur loud talking". Trust me, I appreciate the thought behind the saying but almost everything he says should be in a sitcom.
He once asked me if I believed in the devil, my response (with a chuckle) was Why? He says, "There is no god and there is no devil, if there is I'm the devil" As he was stating his epiphany, I was thinking "You're a crazy man who is off his meds, that has to be the God's honest truth". At this same time, my son happened to be watching the movie Astro Boy and my father in law notices a hologram in the film and says that's what he believes in. So, you mean to tell me there is no greater power in his life than a hologram?! Say What?! You know when a dog doesn't seem to understand where a noise is coming from and tilts his head, that was my expression when my oh so lovely father in law told me his epiphany.
Pure craziness! So, you see I am currently in an uncomfortable situation but I'm able to laugh at the craziness of older folks. I'm also learning where my son's wild imagination comes from...his father's side!
Please feel free to comment and if you are in a tight situation or have had a bad week turn into a bad month or a bad month turn to a bad year, I really hope I can make you smile. I hope that you too can find light in every situation. *Hugs & Kisses*
