Why God Hates Me and Other Nonsense

First off, I am so excited... my daughter's dance teacher and travel partner is coming over on Saturday so we can exchange pictures... whew. FINALLY! I mean it's only been almost 2 months. So, I will post some cute pictures when I get them. My daughter is still talking about her trip to London, it made a huge impression on her. Even though we live in Iowa, we live in a suburb, so therefore, no where near a farm or anything country. So, she comes home from London and exclaims, "I am a city girl, mom!" Which made me laugh, as I have always been a 'city girl' too. Naturally, she wants to move there...

This housing slump or whatever they call it, is such BS. My house got appraised last week, and WHAT A JOKE!!!!! Seriously, there is no way in this life time I would ever consider that price, it was an insult actually. So... I see myself staying there for a little while longer. I haven't decided if that is good or bad yet, either way, it is what it is.

Does anyone else love their husbands so much one day and want to kill them the next??? Or am I the only loon? We are still separated, and most days we are actually getting along really well and I see so much potential and feel so sure that this going to work out and everything will happen when it is suppose to. Then there are a few days, that I want to stab him in the eye. Sometimes I feel like I am alone with my craziness...

Is anyone else watching So You Think You Can Dance... which by the way, is my favorite show in the world. I am not a TV watcher by any means. I have no shows that are must see. I don't watch American Idol or Dancing with the Stars or Lost or any of those other hot shows, but SYTYCD is my MUST SEE. Thank God for Tivo, he is my best friend right now. I also kind of got hooked on A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila on Mtv... that was so dysfunctional, I couldn't help but LMAO. But that's over and crazy enough, Tila didn't find love, AGAIN! Go figure... Oh and I also watch most Sex and the City reruns on TBS and then watch them on my HBO Video on Demand... but that is whenever I feel like it, so no must see TV there either. Oh and SATC movie was freaking FANTASTIC! I know that is about 6 weeks late, since it came out the end of May, but Hey, I have been busy people!!!!

Well, that is enough senseless rambling for one post and I really should get back to work now :-)

Happy 4th and other ramblings...

Happy 4th of July (A day late...of course)!!

I feel like a big heel... I posted once in the month of June. That blows... I have spent the last few hours reading several blogs and catching up and finding out what I have been missing the last month.

My last post described how busy I have been and honestly that hasn't changed. I feel like I am going in about 15 different directions but mostly I feel like I have no direction.

I really think that in the next few months (as soon as I find something close to me and acceptable for my standards) we will be moving. It will either be a condo or town home, to rent, not to buy. I have a buyer for my house that will purchase it as is. We have so many repairs and improvements that need to be done to it, it will be worth it for me to be out from underneath it, since my husband and I are still in a state of uncertainty. I have lived in my house for 18 years, so this is HUGE for me but it's also a relief too.

My husband and I are just there... nothing to really say, just nothing really. I am still in deep thought about that and what it means. I'm not ready to decide anything yet.

My kids are my life... they are doing great. I have been super busy at work and my two boys are both working. My oldest is working full time and my middle son is working at the same place but just part time, they are both doing really well. My daughter has been kept busy most of the summer and I can't complain. The only thing to complain about is not having enough time to get together with her travel companion and exchange pictures!!! My god, hopefully by the end of the damn summer I will have decent London pictures.

This is sad, but the biggest thing on my mind for the future is my middle son going to highschool this fall, my oldest starting college (living at home, though) and what studio my daughter is going to dance at and what we are doing about classes and what she is going to take. I am EXCITING... I know. I freaking almost bore myself!

One thing though, is I really do love my new job. It is going so much better than I ever thought it could. I cannot say enough good things about it. It is perfect for my personality, my style, who I am. It's amazing. If only everything else in my life could follow suit!

I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend and I vow to blog more... for my own sanity. I also will get caught up reading blogs and comment soon. I didn't comment today, but I have been reading. :)
