Vacation TIME!

It’s time for our annual camping trip with our friends. We’re loading that with a trip to the mountains. Life changed things and the boy is being drug off to the whole thing with us. Hey, better to learn this is how life works right?

I can’t wait to get away. After the day I had yesterday, I seriously need it.

I don’t know what is going on and I don’t know if I will find out before I leave. But the good thing about growing old is I can skip ahead in a heartbeat. I went through my pissed off mode with my family in the first hour. It kept repeat a little bit but then I got the the point where I was just “FUCK YOU”.

FUCK YOU

FUCK YOU

FUCK YOU

FUCK YOU

and in case you missed it…FUCK YOU

I have 3 amazing people living under my roof. I was reminded just how amazing today.

The crazy thing is, I grew up in a pretty amazing “leave it to beaver” type house. Everyone has their complaints about growing up, but my family complaints are really minor in the scheme of things. But I ran from the controlling. It was just a tad too much for me…or wait, it wasn’t the controlling. It was the lack of trust.

I can totally judge the difference now that my oldest graduated and has still lived with us this first year of college. When you control as much as my parents did, you lack trust. Eventually that comes out as uber controlling and I need to rebel.

Anyway, yesterday was a shit day because it’s the 3rd anniversary of my doggy dieing. Then I got shit news from my Mom…that I wouldn’t have gotten the 2 sentences I did, except I called her. I worked at shaking it off. I texted friends, I need to shake it off. It’s not my fault. They don’t share info with me even though I see them all the time.

It’s not my fault.

It’s not my fault.

It’s not my fault.

I’m so glad I have a weekend with my best friends to remind me that I’m taking care of what needs to be taken care of most. The four of us that live in this house.

Then we are off for who know how long to chill at a new camping spot we’ve wanted to try for a few years. No time frame for the week. LOVE IT!

      That trip was amazeballs! OMG I need to blog it so I can always go and read about it. Then we also had an awesome camping trip with my MIL and step-FIL. So much fun we extended it another 2 days back at their house. This summer has been highs and lows. But I’m learning to shake the lows off because there is nothing I can do about them :)
