Bah Humbug

I have caught a case of severe bah humbug's. I think it is because I am much shorter on cash this year, than any other. It's depressing. I have to keep reminding myself that it's not about what you give it's about who you are with. But I have to say it over and over and even I'm getting tired of hearing it.

My job has been another source of stress for me, I have loved my job since I started it almost 3 years ago. Then about 2 months ago, all hell broke loose. My boss was first demoted beginning of Nov, then a month later, fired. It has caused a lot of havoc and uncertainty. It's also been a time of a lot of change in a short span. it's a lot to take in. That has not helped.

My husband and I are still not stable and I am back to square one - questioning if I should stay in a marriage that is so unstable and rocky. I need to face my fears and stand on my own to feet and just cut the ties. That is what my head says. My heart is scared.

I'm almost done with school. That is the really great thing. I have 6 classes left, I will be done by June 2011. I am so excited. After I finish, I am seriously contemplating just continuing on with my same school and getting my Masters, while I have momentum. Then I can truly say I am done.

Just so many things on my mind right now and I needed a place to just vent and get it out there. One of my 2011 goals is write a lot more often and get back into my blog. It's 3 years old and I have neglected it for about a year. I do read all the blogs I follow though, I read them from my phone, I just don't comment very much. I hope every one's holiday's are treating them well and everyone is ending 2010 with a bang!

Settling In

I am pretty happy in our new place. It's so quite and just the perfect size for my daughter and I. My (almost) 17 yo son pretty much stays with his brother in our hometown (about 20 minutes away). I can say about 75% of the boxes are put away and organized... but we still have some work to do.

The topic of discuss in these here parts (Iowa) is FLOODING. I am in no danger whatsoever but a few of my friends have had some issues.... one it looks like an earthquake hit her backyard - half her yard sank about 5 feet. The other friend has a major river that is rising and is about 2 houses away from his.

On the Move AGAIN

So I am moving. Again. I've been in our beautiful, wonderful townhome a year. However my marriage just couldn't make it. So in lieu of not being able to afford this place myself, my daughter and I are moving. Again. (Oh, I said that already...) We have a pool here, huge back yard that's like a park, 2 play grounds and a sand volley ball court and kids for my daughter to play with. And we are moving to another, smaller townhome...which I wanted it to be smaller, the place we are in is way to big for just her and I, so that's good, but we have no amenities, it's in a beautiful townhome community and I'm excited for the house itself, just not leaving all the "stuff" this one has. I am rambling and not forming coherent sentences at all.

So I will end with, I want to marry Neil from SYTYCD, yes he's half my age and I could probably technically be his mother, but I don't care, I love him. ROAR.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day everyone! Hope all you mom's are having a splendid day. I had a great weekend being with all my kiddos. Today I am enjoying some quiet ME time, which I savor. :) Yesterday spent almost all day with my 20 year old son, his girlfriend, my 16 year old son and my 12 year old daughter. Today my daughter is shopping with her friend and both of my sons went back to my oldest son's apartment. This evening my daughter and my 16 yo will be home and we will have a low key evening, me just enjoying them!

However you decide to celebrate, I hope it is a great one!

Happy New Year (30 days late)

I am trying to learn how to make a post from my phone! I live under a rock so its my first attempt :).

I've been busy with work and trying to keep whatever sanity I have intact. Not an easy task let me tell you!

Plus I've been buried underneath about 3 feet of snow since the first of December. So anything we do we have to take that into consideration as well.

Now that I've figured out how to post from my phone I might post more than once every 3 months!
