I Am Hosting Random Journal Day this Month-Come Join Us, It's Easy Shmeasy!!

Dawn usually hosts the Random Journal Day Link-up (Which I invented, but she is the kind of blogger who loves to come along side someone and help them with their ideas. Thnx Dawn!) but while she is out of town this week I get to do it!

RJD is super simple: Grab an old journal and use the scribbles or drawings you find inside to inspire a blog post. Then come back here and add your post to the LINK-UP so others will come by and visit your blog. So here is mine.....taken from one of the blogs I kept while my 2 sons were little and we were trying to teach them respect.

"Sometimes a mommy just cannot win!

We've been trying to teach the boys to come to Mom or Dad when they need something. Not to sit in one place and holler over and over again "MOMMY!" until I stop what I am doing and go running to them.
I just automatically go to them. Curt has been stopping me and making the boys come to me. 

The other day I was washing dishes (no dishwasher) and (Rocker Son) called me from his bedroom. This time I remembered and called out for him to come to me. He came, pulling his t-shirt way down to cover his naked bottom! He was needing some clean underwear!"

Rocker Son is a grown-up now and since recently moving back home temporarily he knows how to do his own laundry so there will be no such sightings.

OK friends, now read some of the fun RJD posts below
 and add your post to the list! 
Thanks and Happy 4th of July!

  1. This sounds like fun Suzie ! I have been up all night with The Sads and am going back to bed NOW but i will do this; it sounds so interesting. Later Gator xx

    1. Cool Lisa. It is fun. So interesting to see how some things change and others remain the same over the years. I used to do this for years on my old blog and then with this blog I met Dawn and she convinced me to open it up to people so we can all read each others private journals! Ha! I hope your bed rest helps and banishes the Sads.

  2. Hi Suzie! Nice to meet you through Dawn's blog :)

    I mentioned to Dawn that I'd hop on this next month...I don't know where my journals are at this moment. It sounds like a great idea though. I am happy to 'join' you and get to know you better!

    Happy Friday!

  3. Love this. I can see the moment. You trying NOT to go to his voice, him obeying even as it was embarrassing. Ah, parenting. And now you're making your way in the more complicated land of NOT parenting an adult child living in your home. Grace and mercy to you. Mine is a far different situation than yours, but that new terrain of having a son back after he's been gone is very familiar.

  4. Thanks for the great post & for hosting! I'm linked up & am your latest GFC follower! I hope you'll consider following me back at Saved by Grace!
    God bless,

  5. Thank you for being our host this month! I'm so glad we have this time to share...and hopefully encourage one another in the process. We all need a good dose of encouragement from time to time. You are always such a bright spot in my day. Thank you for being genuinely YOU!!!!
    This was a good one, btw!!! I can just see how that happened, having raised three sons myself! Funny, crazy, happy memories! We didn't know how blessed we were, and still are today! Even when they DO come back home temporarily. Enjoy it while you can. It won't be long before he's back on his own again, and you'll be missing him again. Such is the cycle of life.
    Love ya!

  6. I just resubmitted my post. Thought I did it yesterday, but I don't see it on the list. Not sure what went wrong. So if you end up with it twice, that is why.

  7. Here I am to catch up! Diving in!
