So yeah, O yeah! I love this time of year, I love this season. I am reminded each and every day to be thankful for what I have. I have lots and lots and lots of things to be grateful for! Children, Family, School, Employment, Health, Friends. I love this season, time of year! Right now, I am totally digging life! Doesn't get better than this folks! First semester of school------done! Yeah! O Yeah!
As I sit here today, after doing dishes, by hand I might add and scrubbing the mudroom floor in my hands and knees, I am reminding how thankful I am to be so blessed!! (run on sentence anyone?) Dishes mean I have food in my pantry/fridge and the means to cook it with. While I scrubbed my mud room, I am reminded I have two legs and feet with which to move my body. I am also reminded I have the means to purchase clothing. By purchasing clothing, I am reminded of my children, how thankful I am for them. I am doing homework with B and I am reminded how thankful I am she is able to go to school to learn and how I am able to spend the time with her to help her learn. How thankful I am for school and the opportunity to go to school. Thankful for teachers and the calling they have! I am thankful for my job, I love what I do! I am thankful for the opportunity to work, being able to work, having the knowledge to work. I am thankful for cleaning cause that means I have a house to clean. I love my children, love my family, love my friends!!! I am so, So, SO VERY THANKFUL TODAY!!!
PLUS!! Today was gorgeous and I was off!! WHOOOO HOOOOOO!!!
Life, as I know it, has been going pretty well, extremely well. I finished my first course on my BSN track. I managed to only get a B, can you tell I am not really pleased about that? My children are doing fabulously in school, although M spends a little too much time on facebook, don't we all? K has started football, starting QB for the A team, whoo hooo! B is worried he will get hurt, poor thing. And can I just say.................thank you to BDB. You make my life better! Toodle-looo!
I am having a bad day. I don't know why, don't care to delve deeper, just am having a bad day. I don't want to go anywhere, do anything, see anyone, talk to friends, talk to family, see a movie, see the sun, nope!! NOTHING!!! I don't want to do/see/hear/feel anything. Don't call/write/text/sky write/whatever. just leave me alone.
let me have my bad day..............................
I know, I am horrible, I haven't updated, I have been lazy. I have so much going on, so many things.
First of all, we moved, into a new house, well for us anyway. We now live in Bryan. We love our house. We are slowly changing the wall coverings, from 1970s wallpaper to paint and/or anything else from this century.
Secondly, the kids started new schools. From a 1A to 5A, big shocker! They are doing so much better than they were in N'gee. I am very proud of them!!
Lastly, we are doing great! I mean GREAT!!! Love you all!
I always find it interesting, this blogging thing, a window into someone else's life. The triumphs, heartaches, silliness and struggles. I read everyone's blog that I know, even some of those I don't. The part that I like most about blogging is this, it is extremely personal to me, I have been able to share my issues on life, and while I know this is a public forum, I still can talk about things freely.
Blogging has helped me through my mother's illness and her death, my singleness and not, my children's issues and some other things I am sure to have forgotten.
It makes me realize how close and similar we all are. What struggles the Jackson's are going through, I went through. The fun times the distant Holloway family has, guess what? me too! Blogging makes this world a little smaller for me. I know I am horrible about commenting, I will try and do better. Just know this...........Reading blogs is something I do quite regularly. Just call me Tom, ya know peeking tom.
Off to the orthodontist, Maycie needs an adjustment!!
