Thank you once again for all the comments on my pity party post. After feeling a junk food hangover yesterday I am doing better. I woke up feeling a little blah but got much better the more I got busy. I also ate better too. I just think that every once in a while we need to cry and get it all out of our system. I tend to bottle things up and then all of a sudden something send me over the edge. I don't usually share so much about it but I felt I needed too. I don't want to be a downer type of person I want to be an uplifting and happy person. I do appreciate all of the sweet bloggers who share their true feelings and what is going on. I look at it this way it is like a good therapy session but it is free!
Coco and I went to run errands yesterday and had a good time. I was happy with the skirts and blouses I got at a great price at Burlington. That store is wonderful!
Today we are going to go to the new Goodwill store. We have been saying we were going to go and time just seems to get away from us so today is the day.
Faith has been so excited she has been getting ready for the play "Twist of the Tongue" that her and the drama club are putting on at the end of this month. She is constantly talking about it, singing the songs and practicing her part. To the point I know the words too!
The thing with Dallas is better. He started talking to me the afternoon after he had not talked to me in the morning. E'lyse told him he was being an idiot and he was lazy. He got mad at her but changed his tune with me. It was all over me cleaning his room and finding an R rated movie that he had borrowed. It was the Saw II. We do not allow or even watch R Rated movies ourselves and that is certainly not allowed in our home. I just feel it brings on bad, evil feelings, evil spirits and actions. We have been told by our Prophet to keep our minds and mouths clean and this is just crap being added. There was more to the situation when he unloaded on me that is what really hurt. It will have forever changed our relationship but I will love him no matter what.
I am looking forward to the weekend. I don't have any plans but I am grateful it is on it's way.
So off I go for now. Have a great day! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

I am glad you're feeling a bit better!

As a mom of a 16 and a 20 year old I totally agree with you about the movie. I would not want it in my home either.

I haven't seen it but that type of "entertainment" is not entertainment and I would rather my kids not put it in their heads either.

I'm glad your son is talking to you again. Dealing with their heart issues, dealing with having a heart of anger, is definitely much more important than a movie. So apologizing to you, asking for forgiveness and moving on is a good thing!

I'm glad you're feeling some better! A good motto for me, is that "This too shall pass". Even things with your kids, so hang in there!

I hope you find some good stuff at GW!

I'm sorry things have been going so rough, clothes not fitting can be so traumatic! I'm going though quite a bit of that myself, it may explain why I'm still in my stretchy jammies, although I'm telling myself that its because I have been cleaning all day! I'm sorry things are so messy with D too, if you need one of his YM leaders (I know a good one!! :) who could be of any help I'm sure he'd be more than willing to help in any way.

Anyway, I'm glad today is a better day! Tomorrow is TGIF, right??

Glad to see things are looking up for you. Sounds like you are well on your way to getting out of a slump.

Is the new goodwill store near Queen Creek? I'm sure it has changed since I have been gone. I've been gone for about a year and a half. Is the Target open yet? I miss that store.

Have a good day!!

I'm so sorry that I have not been keeping up with my blog friends. I totally commiserate with you, teenager, argh! What I love the most about the gospel is the hope we can find when all seems lost or just really low. Sending lots of Okie love your way!

Bobbi Jo~ I am glad today was a better day for you. I so hate it when my Son is giving me the cold treatment. It doesn't happen very often since he is actually my "Easy" chid. I know he has raging hormones now and is trying to deal with a lot of stuff going on at home. We don't allow those kind of movies either or the violent killer video games. He does get frustrated that I won't let him do stuff that "all my buddies are getting to do". I almost broke into tears at one of his latest orthodontist appointments. They get him in the chair with that intense light on his face and I can' moustache beginning on my littlest baby, BWwwaaaaaaa!! Sniff, sniff. Just let us know if you need to vent again...We are so totally here for you!!

YES! I'm in Mesa, AZ!

Hi Bobbi Jo - I noticed you're now a follower of my blog. Glad to have you. It's nice to share with fellow church members.

With regards to your son - stand your ground! If he's mad at you that means you're doing a good job of being steadfast in those boundaries you've set. Heavenly Father knows just what it feels like when we get mad and won't talk to Him so He understands completely. And good thing He forgives us and is ready to forget about our temper tantrums. I recently told my grandson, who lives with me, that if you think the rules are strict here just wait till you try to get into Heaven! But hey, my house my rules.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. God bless. :-)Sandy

Bobbi Jo - Sorry I missed your earlier post but glad to hear your spirits are better. I hope you have a lovely weekend. (I feel the same way about R rated movies -especially the horror ones. I can't bear to see someone get hurt - fictional or not - and I think these type of movies make people numb to the actual violence around us.)

I hope you're feeling better! I'm sorry that your relationship with your son changed.
