I made it

to a Tea Party today. Not the one pictured above, but I did get to one. I live in a fairly small community and had to go north to the next town to participate. There were probably 100 people there when I was. Most of the reaction from the traffic was positive. I only saw three people display their finger IQ towards us.
I did not get to go for as long as I had hoped because the earlier mentioned sister did manage to cop on me. When she arrived I said to her that I understood that she would have to go pick her daughter up from school, but would she please come back afterwards. After some hesitation she told me she had promised her grandson she would go to his baseball game and he would be very disappointed if she did not. I just looked at her and told her it was impossible for me to care for mother all night and all day also. Blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda...........................
I called my daughter and got one of my granddaughters to come stay with gramma so I could take a nap and sister dearest would not disappoint her grandson. After I woke up I went to the Tea Party for an hour.
Thanks Shay, #3206.
It was very good to be able to be there for as long as I was. It shows how many people really care. Many things have been accomplished from grass root efforts just like this. The news gave a few numbers tonight. Looks like Atlanta was very well attended. Were any of you there?

I had wanted to, but I had to work until 4:00 and then come home and cook dinner for my students.
I listened to Dave Ramsey who dedicated his 3-hour show today to the Tea Party.

Glad you got to go for a little while anyway!

You go girl - I'm so sorry if you are feeling alone in the care for your mother. It makes me hurt for you.

I feel you. I have a 22 year old stepson who has CP and I miss everything!!!
The only way I can go ANYWHERE is if I pay somebody an astronomical amount. Its not worth it. I stay home. SHAME on your sister!
