OK, so yes, yes... I'm working on keeping up with the website and blog. Unfortunately it does require money which we are a tad short on at the moment so I am doing the best I can with what I have! I'm sure you have been there at some point or another, right? Part of it is the fact my husband and I have WAYYYYYY too big of hearts for helping people and we seem to give the benefit of the doubt to those we probably shouldn't, AND know we shouldn't. But as usual we feel everyone deserves a chance... then we get screwed over - no matter if it is family or friends. Oh well... another lesson (well lessons) learned and time to put our damn feet down and say "NO!" We have to think of us and our kids... so unless we win the lottery (which obviously we have to play to win and we can't afford to do that lol) financial help is out for us to others.
In the meantime, other than the getting royally screwed over, there have been some stressors and changes that happened. One is the fact that I took the semster off from school. I was beyond burned out and felt it would be best to take the time off, considering the horrendous summer we had. I also spent months (no exaggeration) applying for jobs to help with the finances... yeah applied at DOZENS of places claiming to be hiring only to hear nothing or be turned down without even being given a chance. Talk about discouraging and so frustrating!! Luckily, a great place called after 2 months (and then a 2nd part time seasonal place called) and I was hired full time and just lierally started my job at my store. It is very odd (not sure if it's the right word) to be back to work after getting so sick and not working for 6 years. But I have seemed to catch on pretty quick and actually enjoy it to a point. It is tough with my beliefs but I have to do what I have to do, and I am one who will do my job to the fullest and then some regardless. I was hired to do a job, so by golly, I'm gonna' do it! I have always had a very high and strong work ethic and I pride myself on that fact! As far as the 2nd job, it is during Spring Training for a couple months and I'm excited for that!
Despite taking the time off from school, I am enrolled for the Spring semester because I am way too close to my Bachelor's Degree to stop now! Still debating if I go for another Bachelor's in Nutrition or seriously consider ND school. I have time so we shall see. I have our son graduating high school in May and then the next year ('19) our daughter graduated high school! Then all 4 of us will be in college! Yeah, crazy right?!?! Our son wants to do computers (gaming of course) and our daughter has discovered A&P in high school and wants to go into healthcare. We are excited for both of them!
I have had some time to think and redirect myself over the last few months and am still woking on a few things but am excited at what I have been learning and doing spiritually. I will be sharing more of that (along with some rants and pet peeves because EVERYONE has those no matter how positive one is!!). We are all human and suppressing feelings isn't good so yes, there will be some sailor/potty mouth rants because it is good to get those feelings out and use the sentence enhancers to express/stress those feelings. To me, it's the reality of being human. Pretending life is all fancy free and hunky dory is just not in the cards for me at this point. It is brutal honesty and reality. No bullshitting; plain and simple!
In closing, I just wanted to do a check in and update for the moment (brief as it is) and to say yes I am still here!! AND I will be working harder to keep up on the blog! Thanks for reading and feel free to share!! Til later!!
