A Great Visit!

Peoria, Arizona

Today I had a struggle with my attention span. I think it is because I am anxious about something but I am not really comfortable talking about it. But I will talk about what I did with my short attention span. I did not want to just sit there doing nothing, playing video games, or just scrolling on my phone so I had to do something. I decided that since I was planning on visiting my grandma anyway, that I would visit her in the afternoon instead of in the evening. It was an actually good visit. I told her about the drama I went through last week. She talked about her fight with dealing with a family tree program she is working on. She checked out my website which she hadn't seen because she had been busy. Then for some reason we started talking about astrology which is always fun. I love astrology, I love zodiacs. Yeah you can think I am a weirdo but, just know I am a leo and I am stubborn! So I don't care what you think haha Except unless you don't give me attention...I like attention. At the end of the visit she started talking about my grandpa, her first husband who died when my mom was very little. She never really talks about him because the past is just tough to deal with. But she said that she might write some memoris of all the trials and difficulties that happened in their relationship. I think that is something very important for us in the family to learn about. Why is my grandma the way she is? What really happened between her and the father of her two children? I always wanted to learn more about my grandpa, because he had such an odd past but I didn't think it was appropriate to ask about, but I feel like it is important to know. So maybe she will do it. Maybe she won't. She tried a long time ago but she doesn't know where that writing went. So yeah it was an actually good visit! No arguments which was nice and yeah! It was a good time.

Well if you aren't comfortable talking about it here but you want someone to talk to shoot me a message on Instagram. I was huge into astrology and numerology etc as a teen. I really hope your grandmother does write about it. Sad she has never really talked about it. I think family history is very important. I am not a fan of covering up the past no matter how painful.

It is nothing bad, I just don't feel a need to share it really. I have always loved Astrology and such. I want to eventually get into tarot. I know some stories that were told to my mom by my great grandma and great aunt about her father, but I think it is important to learn something that is so interesting that is part of her past.

Thankfully a lot of stuff that has happened in our family she has kept track of. She loves genealogy so we know a lot more than most people do about their own families.

You really did have a worthwhile visit. I do hope you have future visits with your grandma that are also pleasurable.

Visits are always a hit or miss sometimes, but most of the time I try to keep them calm and more exciting and not cause trouble haha

Sometimes I get lost when talking about the past with my cousins. I don't know if they had forgotten facts or maybe it can be me.
