Never criticize a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes
I will be so happy to enjoy the sunshine that California has to offer. The Washington dreary blues has fully established itself in me and I need to get out.
I'll be taking my bead equipment with me and if six months here and six months there brings the relief I need then all will be well.
So I will be taking some time off from my beadmaking while getting established with my sister-in-law Jeanette. We have lived together before she and my brother, Jerry, were married and find that since his passing in 2000, we are going to give it a whirl again. We have a lot of fun together and are the same age, have so many life experiences in common and can offer each other a new brand/level of support.
This is a big move and of course I have a lot of emotional turmoil going on since the decision to move has come about. All I know is when you gotta go - you gotta go.
My mother is small in stature but mighty in control issues. I don't suppose I have the full support of the entire family because it is easier for them if I stay with grandma and "do my duty" as a good daughter should. Right? All I know is that I need a longer break than I have been taking away from the situation at hand.
As the old indian proverb states, "never criticize a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes".
Love and hugs
