relationships are sometimes hard...

Wow, I haven't written since Monday.  I really hate when that much time gets away from me and I haven't written.  I've been so busy, though.  Sometimes I think the world is going too fast, and I just want to get off.

I've also been going through a lot.  Things beyond my control have really frustrated me.  I need to learn to relax, and realize that I can't do anything about things that are beyond my control.  That's something that's sometimes hard to do.

I've been doing it, but it's been draining me.  I'm holding on though.  I'm learning a lot and getting my footing.  A lot of it has to do with drawing boundaries in relationships.  Dealings with persons is hard for me at times.  I do better when I have to deal with things like whether or not John has a fever, or needs to go to the hospital, or something like that, LOL.  Something serious is sometimes easier for me to deal with than something lighter!  I can't explain why.  Maybe it is because I know I really have to rally everything I've got when something really serious needs to be taken care of.  I wish I was better able to do that when it comes to dealing with relationships...

Okay, I've got to get off of here.  It's getting late.  I guess it's past midnight.  I'm glad it's November already.  A new month for a new start.  I love that the holidays are coming up.  I love Thanksgiving and Christmas.  They are so beautiful to me.  I need to slow down enough to be able to celebrate them.  That's what I'll do...




  1. You have had so much to deal with Krissi of late,maybe now you are in your home, everything seems to be catching up on you.We all get these problems and feelings I think in our lifetimes.I think one day you maybe find you will be  able to deal with them.I hope you feel better tomorrow and you have a good nights sleep.Prayers continueing for you and John.Take Care God Bless kath

  2. yes, I agree with you, there's just something about Thanksgiving and Christmas that brings peace and serenity along with the breezy cool air...

    Happy November Krissy~

    Hi Krissy!

  5. Yes, our focus now will be the two holidays and celebrating Thanks and JOY.  One of the priests we used to have said - Plan your work then work your plan.  That's what I'm trying to do. Staying with the plan is not always easy, but we'll see...

    Just popped in to say Hi,have a nice day.

  7. Take care of yourself, Krissy.

  8. I'm glad it's November, too, Krissy.  I love the holidays.  I know what you mean about being able to handle things that are big.  You take a big step, especially for those you love.  Relationships are so hard, yes, and saying no is even harder.  Do take good care of yourself and remember to take time to play and have fun and rest.  I love you and John so much!!  Love, Val xox

    I hope that you get a chance to enjoy the seasons.  Hugs.  Tish G.

  10. I'm with you on loving the season coming up. I love fall, but winter is my fav. Hope you have a great day and yes, relax a little.
    Take care, Chrissie

  11. Krissy you just take it one day at a time, make the most of the day you have and don't allow anything to stress you out.  Know it's not easy, but worrying doesn't change anything just keeps the stress level up. You are welcome to use my personal motto "No One And Nothing Will Get Me Down", works for me.  In each day allow some Arlene time and it helps.  Take care dear.  Arlene (AJ)

    I'm hoping you are having a good day.  Enjoy the fall colors!

  13. Krissy~Here's the old platitude that still works if you can be consistent about it: Let go and let God; put it all in His hands and know that He is handling it. When you grab back onto another little corner of it--give it back. ;-) I'm happy the holidays are coming too...I love John's journal; I've become a regular! LOL! Some great guy you've got there! Deb ;-)

  14. I know how you feel about handling serious matters better than non-serious matters.  I'm the same way here.  I think it's because we're used to having serious things going on around us and knowing we just have to deal with it.  When it's something not as important, it's hard to figure out how to handle it.  Have a good day.

    I know what you mean, the little things are the hardest for me too.  Hang in there honey!!  Love, Shelly

  16. The holidays are coming so fast for me....I'm so not ready for them....June

    ((((((((((((((KRISSY))))))))))))))))))))I read your other entry before this one.I know,life goes to fast.

    I love November:)  I hope to do a November entry sometime.

    I'm sure you realize that you need to find some time for you, and to slow down occasionally.

    I udnerstand the ability to rally for an acute crisis, but that chronic stuff is just plain wearing.

    One week, one day, one hour at a time!  {{{KRISSY}}}}   {{{{JOHN}}}}

    You are good at working things out with His guidance.  This time of year is very special, and I'm glad you take the time to enjoy!

  21.     I'm not good with relationships either. I think you can predict things like illnesses or disasters. Either things get better or they don't. You can't predict people. Apply the right pressure and you're never sure where they'll bounce off to.

  22. Key to relationships for me is to set priorities.  God & me, hubby, children, job, extended family and friends.  Occasionally a serious or important matter might juggle the list but don't let it last.  If you aren't at your best and right with God, it is almost impossible to get any other relationship right.  

    I also cleave to the prayer,
    God grant me the serinity to except the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.  

    I have found that other people are one of the things I cannot change.  And that I am almost always one of the things I can, with God's help.

    Hey Superwoman!!  I don't know how you do all that you do!!!  I hope to slow down too and celebrate for the holidays too and it's been so hard for us this year so I don't know if I can, but I will try.  I still pray for you and John!!  Hang in there and so nice to have you stop by in my journal!!!!  Hugs,

  24. Krissy,

    Relationships certainly can be difficult at times.  Yet, people are so important that it's always worth putting a little bit of effort into our relationships.  Hope things change for the better for you!  Hang in there!



I would love to hear from you. Now is your chance! So what do you want to say?
