Nettie’s ramblings

Ok, so I am getting the hang of this blog thing. I like it but find myself holding back some. I guess that comes from a fear that someone may not like what I have to say. So, my hope is that as I continue my blogging journey I will open myself up more and more. I was reading a blog earlier that talked about living in the moment. My problem is finding ANY moment to just LIVE in! My life has become so mundane that I relish in nothing. My kids are all grown with lives of their own. My marriage of 25 years is no longer in existence. I no longer have drugs and booze to turn to. Boo hoo, poor me right? Not really, I’m thankful for the life I have today. I’m just bored! I need a time consuming hobby and I need it F A S T before my moments are none. I’m 43 waiting for life to begin. I got to remember I am the only one to change or begin anything.

Daily prompt/clone wars

If I could clone myself she would have an amazing figure, very successful in business, she would not have the mental illnesses I have been blessed with. Regrets, she would have none. This me would be just a vivid memory and I would really become my clone. I would only want the same children I have now. They are wonderful and are the only things I have done right. My perfect cones life would involve them. My clone would have never made the same parenting mistakes I did. She would have been the perfect mother to my wonderful sons. If I could clone myself I would become new!

Daily prompt/wall to wall

I currently display nothing on my walls. My bedroom walls that is. I live with my son and his new wife. I defer our house decor to them. This economy has forced us to live together to stay afloat. But, I’m currently starting a fresh new life. I suppose that is why my walls of my personal space are blank. I was in a relationship for over 20 years. A blank slate. I remember through the years my walls reflected whatever I thought was popular with the times. Years ago there was home interior. When I was a teen it was motley crew or Bon jovi. What was popular was on my walls. My new state of affairs of my life have left me blank. Hummm, maybe I should start decorating my walls?
