Wrong Can Sometimes Be Right

Wrong can sometimes be right , maybe it seems at the time that all will never be right again , maybe there is so much wrong that to get anything right out of it  seems impossible. 

Let me tell you my story , I was born into a dysfunctional family, mother didn’t  seem to care, father was a drunk , and constantly beat me because  I was not a boy, and he wanted a son badly. Sometime during this period  I got taken to church and  I remember  as clear as if it was today ,as a little girl , giving my heart to Jesus , have never stopped loving him , and now as  I look back , hes never stopped loving me . Even  when I got pulled out of school and put to work in a factory , married at 16 to get away from an abusive  family , his hand was there, as when also a child ,1 I got pushed into a bonfire ,and almost died, then  later got pushed into the deep end of a swimming pool, again almost died. Through all this though I  made it , seemed someone was trying to get rid of me . ( LOL ) Sorry it did not work , am still here and fighting on. 

After 20+  years in a marriage that had problems that seemed to come only after I could no longer have children , he wanted heaps but  I could not physically do it , it ruined my insides. I have found out since he has a problem ,that had we  even known about it way back then that marriage could maybe have been saved. …Who knows ?

So ended up alone and working and doing ok , but things again intervened  to change my life dramatically. Found my self heading for Adelaide and  a new beginning , unfortunately it too was a case of , if I had only known , but we can not tell our  future so we have to live life as it comes, and keep faith that God knows best.

From there went to Brisbane and what I once again thought was going to be a permanent relationship , but again was all wrong so left it behind.

While  in Brisbane  found myself on the internet, and into chat rooms ( still in em too lol ) from there found myself over in Perth to get extra work to get more money to go to London ( remember my stalker Mario ? ) LOL  Well tickets having been so very kindly given to me , off to  London I went , and after a few  hicc ups  married my stalker lol , and finally came back home with him. We are now settled in a nice unit in Sydney and my stalker is working hard in a job he just loves, and I get to do pretty much what I want to , mmmm  nice huh ? 

So lets put it together , never wanted as a child , now that’s a wrong, pushed into a fire, a wrong, pushed into a pool , also a wrong, and unhappy marriage another wrong , then another 2 wrong connections both wrongs. So how can all or any of this be right ? 

Easy, number 1 none of the things that should have killed me did,2, none of the people that hurt me or tried to ruin my life succeeded   , 3, my family  as in sisters, brothers and children and grand children have always been there for me . Next and most important God has been there all this time , even in the darkest times and bought me through times that surely should have finished me , so there is how  Right can come from Wrong . We may not see it at the time but it is there , and anyway , if all this was not meant to be , why ? did a complete stranger give me ,out of the blue a 1st class return ticket to London  when  I needed it the most ?? 

All things being equal then , right has over come  wrong and  I am now happy living with my stalker , and he loves me to bits , have never been loved like this before and I just love it , every woman deserves a man like him ( forget it he is mine lol ) Moral of my story ?? Never ..ever .. give up no matter what life throws at you , God is always there to lean on  and wrong can definitely  be over come by right  .. The things  I have seen and the places  around the world I have been to , have just been wonderful ,and tough though it has been , would not have changed a thing as the outcome might have been far worse. It was all to prepare me for what is now ..so as far as  I am concerned God does know best and he has watched over and protected me ..

Husbands …Yes or No ??

Husbands  yes or no ?? 

Now that is the burning question isn’t  it ? 

Not sure what to think sometimes about this subject , my 1st  Husband and father of the kids , was a good man , until I could no longer have any. Then he seemed to change,just see me as goods, something he owned ,got so demanding that even breathing almost  was not on unless he said so. So after 20 + years  I called it quits and left. Stayed away from them for quite some time , until circumstances led me to Adelaide . 

Enter husband number 2 who at the beginning hid the fact of just how much he drank. Did not find out how much till it was too late ,and of course the drinking  soon became an issue ,as to this day cannot understand how he could even walk right he drank so much. As you would expect in this situation the inevitable happened , he got cancer of the bowel , a very aggressive  one that took him in less than 5 months.

So gave men away for quite some time , did try again with 1 more but he too thought  all I was there for was to do what he said …exit stage left ….

After leaving him , some  drip ( my son )  lol .. got me onto the internet . Well almost all downhill from there huh ? 

Also he got me into chat  .. IRC  to those who don,t know that’s  Internet  Relay Chat , where there are  squillions of chat rooms , I still own 3 myself now. Back to the point , in 1 of these chat rooms a man with  the nick of  @Mario^  started chatting to me a lot , that was fine for a while , then he started to DM  ( direct message )  me. 

Well when I worked out what he was actually saying, what he really wanted  … me .. lol , I told him 4  things.

1 your too young 

2 your too fat 

3 your too bald …..having said that I added 4- your nothing like what I want in a man even if I wanted another 1 . Well did he listen ? did he stop ? Not a bloody hope of it  , he became even more persistent , lol if that was possible. to put it in his own words …

I stalked you until you panicked and gave in …lol how right that was , and he still is a  persistent  bugger  ..But…having said that  ,let me say this , he is the most loving caring man I have ever met . We would never even have made it together if it had not been for another chat friend  , who realised we just could not get enough money together to even get started , so sent me a return 1st class air ticket to  London …We still have not even met this man and we so would love to  he is 1 in a million. 

@Mario^ turned out to be the best thing that had happened to me in many a long year , so off to London  where I spent just oner 3 months there and us getting to know each other and see if it was a real love we had . Came back home to help a friend out , and also to get all my things sorted  to go back and live , but before  I left , we got engaged. Here the fun and games of getting a visa started , boy what fun that was  … not ..

Went back second time for  6 months as we set things up , only to find there had been a screw up in the paper work so had to return yet again to Australia , this time was only here weeks before I was able to go back. We lived there for 5 years ,then after many problems and drawbacks I bought him home with me ……ohhhhh look he followed me home  ..can I keep him ?? lol 

We also got married  just before we left London , so as  I had gone and  married him , thought  I better bring him home too, lol, besides  I needed a luggage trolley , that,s my story and  I am sticking to it  …giggles …Well there are times ,as with most husbands, I want to knock his block off. On the whole though , am so happy  I did bring him home , on the nights we actually sleep together lol and he,s not on night shift  when  we lay in each others arms and just relax. Also the times we sit and just  watch TV saying nothing because we are relaxed with each other .He may not look like a movie star  ( neither do I ) but he is a good man underneath and that is what matters, looks have never mattered. 

Now if  I could just get him to stop procrastinating , when there are things to be done, stop being a cheeky sod at times , and stop groping when I am trying to get things done …hmmmm  but if that all happens he won,t be the same man will he? Now we get to the question ..Husbands yes or no ??  * falls over laughing * I have no idea once a pest always a pest ..right  @Mario^? 

Husbands …you can,t live with them ..and the spoilsports won,t  let you shoot them ..

Cardboard Boxes ..

Cardboard Boxes …what would we do without them ?

Recently as regular readers know we finally moved into  a new unit in Sydney, and in moving there we had what you might call an attack of cardboard boxes, they were everywhere. We had them  to sort out things from, to  sort out things to. To send things over here with, to hold our stuff in till we get furniture.

On thinking about it how many uses do we put them to ? lol  We get shoes in them, we get food in them, we get clothes in them , we use them to  take things from 1 place to another ,and  I am sure you can think of many other things they are used for . They are always great for storing things in as they last for ages and ages , some people have boxes they have had stuff in for years . I know we did before our big move ,and we still do now  for lack of other places to put things.

What I want to know is why we don,t use them more? They last  a long time ,and when they finally do pack it in ,so to speak, they are easily disposed of in an environmentally  friendly way .Why have we become a society who just grabs whatever plastic bags we can find , and there are always millions of them  instead of the friendlier boxes ? The cardboard boxes have been around way longer than  the plastic bags anyway , so why did we move away from using them ?

Yes guess  I am sticking up for the humble cardboard box  but  , I really think they need a some free advertising , lol, I know before you say it , yes I am nuts , but we do need to think more about what we do , for everyone,s  sake . The boxes at least can be  recycled and the plastic bags cannot be ,they stay viable for  many years  polluting  the earth.  I have had many fun times with  boxes as well , specially when the one you want cannot be found, you can bet on it that the very last box you look in is the one you needed. So we should start from that  one first , lol, but we don,t.  My feeling is that they know which one you want and sort it out between themselves so  you can,t find the right one till last. It is about time someone  said this , having personally had this problem way too many times, I think it is high time someone said it out loud. I guess  that is the main reason people turn to plastic , to thwart  the boxes , lol, my story and  I,m sticking to it .

Then there is the fun and games our pets ( no I don’t mean hubby )   have in them , playing  with them , in them under them , bouncing all over and in and out . Had many a giggle at the antics of animals playing with boxes ,being cardboard they can not hurt them  so they can play safely . Then there are all the times the kids  of all ages use them as forts , play hide and seek in them ,and the list goes on. So next time you  need to store , carry , or use something generally , then don,t turn to the plastic , get a cardboard box ,much more better  …trust me .. boxes 2 boxes 3 boxes 4 boxes boxes1 Here  are some ways we use em , lol , see? easy as  …
