a yo-yo day
August 18, 2009 11:23am CST
Have you ever had a day that was beyond the normal up and down emotionally? You know, where one minute all is great in the world then five minutes later you are on the edge of your seat with worry. Then comes good news that it's all ok and then someone up and ruins it with bad news. Yeah, those days are memorable and yucky. And when it's a Monday... it's even worse. Yesterday our 3 month old pup barked and wagged his tail... great news since he was recovering from the latest strain of Parvo. He had me worried their for a while. My niece is 18 weeks along in her first pregnancy. She started spotting on Sunday and bleeding on mon. We were so worried when she was rushed to the ER. BUT Baby 2 Be Bailey is going to be fine. Her mom just needs to put her feet up more. While receiving the news from my sister, my father calls in to her phone. She called me back to tell me Gam. C died at 9:30. It's almost like Gram left so Bailey could stay. I feel like a yo-yo that hit the ground each down turn and never made it to the top on the up swing. It's been like this all summer and quite frankly.... I'm sick of it. Is it fall yet? Have you had days like that... or seasons... or years....?????

I'm so sorry about your grandma but very happy for baby. I've had a couple years like that. My days don't tend to yo-yo so much as my life does. I was divorced at the end of 2006 and that was very stressful and sad for me and my sons. Then I moved back to my home state, 1800 miles away from my grown sons and that was great until I realized that I might be back home but my sons weren't here! That same year, 2007, my mom fell and broke her pelvis in the summer and at the end of that year I lost my oldest brother. I grieved all alone since mom was back west where my brother had lived and she stayed with my other brother to help him with things. Things went a bit more smoothly with minor bumps till the end of 2008 when I lost my temp to hire job. No work here. Now my ex is taking me back to court to reduce his court-ordered financial responsibility to me since I spent nearly 20 years exclusively taking care of him and the children. And I found out I'm clinically depressed but can't afford any medication for it. I'm in a clinical trial but when that's done, I'm on my own. Whew! That looks like a lot and I wish I hadn't thought about it! But I have yo-yo years rather than days. I wish you more even-tempered days!

So very sorry to hear of your Grandma's passing, TLC. Life is hard to deal with as it is without all the roller coaster rides. We've been walking the same crazy twisted path for many years with a whole lotta bumps and bruises to show for it. I've since met some wild friends on here that have for the most part, grounded me from my roaming mind.

Hello my friend TLChimes Ji, I feel very sad to know all about your affairs, which caused you so much distress. But let me remind everyone here, this is part of game. If 'Night' has fallen 'Day' is sure to break. This cycle keeps going on and on. There is nothing wrong. After this, what is in store from HIS side no-one knows, but I am sure something very good, pleasent is going to surprise you. May God bless You and have a great time.

Sorry about your Gram, Chimes it is a shame. You have had one heck of a day haven’t you? You are not alone, I’ve been there and done that too, in fact I have been up and down on a daily basis for what seems like ages now, from sick kitties to sick children to visiting relatives. One minute I am crying my eyes out and the next I am laughing hysterically. Friends keep telling me that it will pass but it seems one thing after another and not all of it is good and now I have a darn toothache to contend with! Great news about Baby Bailey!
