"New Six Word Memoir"

I have been tagged by Cece over at The Creative Works of my Mind
to come up with six words for my memoir. Sounds easy right? Not easy for me,
that is why I haven't posted till now. I actually have now come
up with about six different ones...and now am having
a difficult time deciding on one. Why so many one might ask....well it depended on the
mood I was in, the time of day and how many people were driving me crazy at the moment!!
I finally did make a decision....I decided to go with the.........1st memoir that I came up with!

Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Friend to Everyone

I know that I have done the very best that I could do at being each and everyone of these...


It has been a very Sh***y day, therefore I have decided to change
my memoir to better reflect my present Mood.Just like
The Wild Onion, there are no rules here in GIGSVILLE!! Also,
Khylie has asked what the other memoirs were.

I will share the others before the one I am really feeling today.

One child, Two husbands, Seven grandchildren

Need to leave, Afraid to go

Put others first, forgot about myself

Should have left, Couldn't walk away

Always did for others, not myself.

Yeh, I know there is a pattern there...but am not in the

mood to discuss it...suffice it to say I am working on these issues!!


Stormy Clouds

Like Cece, I have always been fascinated by

Clouds...white puffy clouds...dark stormy clouds..snow clouds...the list of

different ones could go on forever.

When we started back home Sunday night

Mother Nature was putting on quite a show

for us. I snapped a few pictures of

the storm as it rolled in.

Storm clouds rolling in

These pictures were taken on my way to visit my Mom on Sunday June 23d. The clouds rolled in and the wind blew in and then the rain.Did not last long, no damage. This shot is about a block from our old house, the vacant lot with the weeds is where the V-8 Engine Plant that Mr. Big worked at used to be. It was torn down about 8 yrs ago. The other factory is the General Motors Truck and Bus Plant.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!

Lotsa love to everyone...

Loved the clouds! and the meme wasn't too bad either. I'm sneaking on here at work because I won't be able to get on tonight, too much to do. Talk to you soon.

I love the meme and the clouds. I have a headache from hell sweetie, so this will be short, but I left something over at the Cafe! I think the smoke has finally killed me. I'm about to start a new day, but feel like crapper and want it to end before it begins.

Hope your day is better I love you.


kylie said...

the clouds look fantastic and i wanna know what the other 5 memoirs were?
take care

kylie said...

bravely stated gig,
i think it reflects the experience of lots of us

Gig said...

Well, that was one of the other reasons I stated them...there are probably only a few people in the world that have not had those feelings.
I don't have them everyday, but some days...
Poor planning on future income (when I am old,ha,ha), can be a stumbling block.

Thanks K., I feel better just putting them out where everyone can see.

Gig said...

I hope your headache is better, I deal with headaches everyday, so I do feel your pain.

I am praying for an end to all your smoke and to all the fires in CA.

I will be looking for you at the Cafe, let's go celebrate your Birthday girl!!
love you

Gig said...

Ok, what do you mean the meme isn't too bad? I revised...
Am glad you liked the clouds, thought they were cool, glad they caused no damage. love ya

Leah said...

Good post, Gig, and I also hope your day's going better. Boy could I relate to your memes the other day...thanks for sharing with us...and the storm clouds rolling in, very fitting.


Gig said...

Today is a little better...thanks for coming by. I have been working on my50 list, also trying to link it for you to check it out. Hope you all have a great weekend.

Suzanne said...

Oh Christ...this is your lucky day. I still have the headache from hell. This poor air quality is killing me. No joke. A migraine is a migraine, this is beyond a migraine, but here I sit. I tried to explain it to Kylie, but to no avail. This has to end soon because I think it might kill me if it doesn't. Holy crapper this hurts.

I love the update. It's honest and true and you're brave. I like brave women. I'm not one. I think I am, but I'm not. Not compared with all of you. You're truly brave. Okay. I'll take the challenge because I think every woman should. So bring it on and I'll try to be brave and honest in six words.

Do you know why I love this blog? Because of all of you. You bring something to my life that was lacking because apparently, you're the missing link. (Of course I'm laughing!!!) Okay, I'll stop laughing. Okay. I'm ready. Okay, I'm ready. Okay. Okay, I'm going to knock it off. Okay. Okay. I'm ready...bring it on.

Gig, I love you. Honestly and truly. I will never leave you and I hope none of you will leave me. And if any of you die on me, I will just kill you.

With love,

I think there must be a black cloud of smoke gathering over our bloggerland folks this week. Those CA fires need to be put out soon, because they are creating a lot of negative energy. I'm sorry you had a Sh***t Day. I'm also sorry the other Meme's describes how you feel about your life. I think I need to work on a new post that will hopefully give us all back some positive hope in our lives. Hang in there, Dear.

Hi Gig,

I'm so sorry for not having visited for what seems like ever! You are now on my blogroll - ta da!

Love the memes - very apt and full of angst. Hope your day got better (even though it was a week ago!) and that you're in a better mood now.

Take care,
Peter x

G'day Gig,
I've been meaning to visit you for yonks and am finally here again.
Your meme was honest and I liked the way you have expressed your angst.
The clouds looked really forboding.

I wrote this while I was tired so it possibly isn't my best. (many edits)
I hope that you are feeling better about things.

Kookaburra said...

It seems that I have paraphrased what Peter said. Oh well.

Hey Gig... how about that Martin Hossa deal today? Great move by the Red Wings. They're going to be sooooo tough next year again if Osgood is on his game.

Gig said...

Thanks for stopping by, I am working on improving my mood. I have to change my antidepressant, the one I have been taking is making me sick. I hope you are feeling better.

love ya, gig

Gig said...

I hope your headache is better, I do think the smoke has made it worse for you. I always feel better after you have been here. Just reading what everybody has said has helped more than you can know.

love you, hottie blottie!!
Happy Birthday to you!!

Gig said...

Dear Sweet Bindi,
So happy to see you here...I hope you are feeling a little better. I am sorry that I have not called, but am thinking of you and your little princess.

Take care, love you

Gig said...

Glad to see you!! Thanks for the comments on my memoir. I hesitated, then updated, figured why not. It was how I felt at different times in my life. I think it helped to express it and not just keep it inside.

Hope everything is good in your part of the world.
Give my best to Jo and Helen!!
Cheers and beers to you!!

Gig said...

Just Bob,
Thamks for the update on the Wings, I must go check this out. I have been to busy with teenagers to hear this.

Go Detroit Tigers!!
