Now Playing: Day 2859-Next GP Chapter... Turning Lemons Into Lemonade :)
You know the ole saying... Life is far too short.
So why not have a little bit of fun!
Today it seems that the Boobear Birthday Ninja decided to strike when least expected!
Sure...I know what most of you are thinking. This is about to get f-u-n-n-y! You know what? You are absolutely, 100 million percent, spot-on, RIGHT!
After last month's ridiculous shenanigans, family claiming that Eric and his coworker, Deputy Sheriff's for the county, plotted a Boobear birthday Ninja move by literally ruining a family members birthday. Of all reasons, in order to move storage totes out of a grandparents basement, given prior permission by the grandparent. Ridiculousness filed in Butler County, Ohio court. Now, public record. Denied and dismissed by the judge. Because of course, it's not a life threatening event by any means when one is attempting to pick up moving totes out of a grandparents basement with a reserved U-Haul.
BAH! Hehehehehehe! Downright silly, I tell ya!
Honestly, I believe everyone will be laughing about this for a very long time. We are just not-so-sure which part of the story/claim will be chuckled over time and time again?. A family member claiming that the Ninja tote movers were ruining their birthday by picking up moving totes, in which, they didn't even ring the doorbell due to not being able to locate the grandparents home after a new fence was installed. Or...claiming that their birthday was also ruined by a reserved U-Haul?. HA! Literally, either way you look at it...downright silly! To file a court document claiming partly your life was in immediate danger from moving totes, two folks, Deputy Sheriff's, trying to get the moving totes and one reserved U-Haul. It still has many shaking their heads. It has me still shaking my head and remembering my Grandmothers quote about fools. Foolish folks. "You both are better off without them."
The dismissed, denied by the judge, court filings by family. Is clearly the reason why this evening, I made sure that this gal went along to retrieve the first batch of moving totes from the grandparents basement. Of course...making sure it was done so with no one present to cause another dramatic uproar over absolutely...nothing.
I like to call this evening's tote moving adventure:
Boobear Birthday Ninja STRIKES!
While everyone is out, about or at Bingo.
Hehehehehehehe! Literally, the depths I have to go through in order to keep the peace back across the state line, Ohio. Keeping peace in the city.
<Literally smiling and shaking my head as I continue typing
The Boobear Birthday Ninja was so smooth...that literally nothing went noticed as far as 11 totes, 1 large Xmas tree, 3 small Xmas trees and one huge green screen. All successfully moved from the basement to both parked vehicles waiting to make a Ninja escape without notice. All this...in order to be the bigger adults and keep the peace among family members. AMEN.
I was on the phone the other day with Eric's father. A long conversation about all of the dysfunction that has been going on among both large families. Really...as I told him...it's a sad shame. But I also told his father, that one day, there will be something that happens. An event in ones life. That literally puts life into a far bigger perspective. Silly things such as the Boobear and the gang story and other family members overdramatizing such pettiness, will no longer bother you anymore. You will actually be able to finally find humor in such a highly dynamic, dysfunction of sorts. Issues among both families that really is a crying shame. But with life changing events, such as what myself and Eric have went through over the past few weeks. You learn that even with highly dysfunctional family issues, those that have continued on for years. Some, even for almost a decade. You learn not to let things with family bother you anymore. You come to a point where you can finally laugh, shake your head, and let it roll off your shoulder. Doing so, with a smile. You learn that life is far too short, to ever let anything or anyone make you unhappy.
Life is far too short to waste another minute, another moment, another second. Even if that time means being wasted by long-winded issues among family.
It was the second of long conversations with Eric's father. In which, a light was shed upon such a very unfortunate situation. Families torn apart, two, over such pettiness. Egos far too large to just sit down, work issues out and offer a sincere apology. Too many Chiefs...not enough Indians. That's how I look at the entire situation.
But you know what I have learned the most?
Life goes on. Happiness is solely yours for the taking! Literally, absolutely, 100 million percent. It IS yours for the taking!
As for this evening's Boobear Birthday Ninja attempt at the first round of moving totes? A most HUGE success!
Isn't it sad. When those who should be there for you through thick and thin. End up being the ones who will let you down and hurt you the most. Yet...preach about not having the time to be there for each other, as family members. Yet, have all the time in the world abusing the court system. See...there are many lessons learned among both families. The greatest lesson of all is that when people claim they don't have the time for you. In turn...don't give back your valuable time for the taking. People, even family, that love you unconditionally. Will go great lengths in order to spent time with you, quality time, not petty time. Petty time is time wasted. I respect and deeply value my time. I refuse to have my valuable time wasted.
These Boobear Birthday Ninja's have no further time to waste. Life is far too short.
Be HAPPY! Do YOU!
Never look back at closed doors. God keeps them closed for good reason! This, I know.
