First Venture of 2011

The twins and I pile into our beater of a car and head out on the road. We have two hours of hang time, just us alone....

I am exhausted and it's cold, so I want to go do something indoors. What can we do?

I see PetSmart and decide to take them. Have you ever visited a pet store through the eyes of a four year old? Its just as good as the zoo!

We looked at all sorts of fish, watched a hermit crab molt, checked out empty cages that contained a variety of decorations. We made faces at the dogs being groomed. We chased the dogs infront of us in the large window that looked into the doggy daycamp. We laughed as we saw a lizard poop on the window. Our mouths opened with awe as we tried to count how many birds were hiding in the birdy box. (There were over 9!) Then we went to PetCo and saw turtles and a chameleon and more turtles. We climbed in dog houses and cat houses and laughed at dogs peeing in a store. We wanted to taste doggy treats because they looked just like cookies. We saw big crickets and baby crickets and begged no to have the cage opened. Such a wonderful wonderful place to look at animals. We thought hamsters and mice were cute and stinky and clad that we just have Zhu Zhus at home.

How to Become a Tech geek in 72 hrs? Please do help!!!!!


So I am taking a cram course this weekend....anyone that can help...please do.

My cram course is going to be what people tell me or teach me or can direct me too.

I have to become something I fought my whole life ....over this weekend!

Literally when someone mentions technical garble my brain would turn off, I mean, I always had someone to help dad, a I have an opportunity to show how quick I learn how to tell someone to map a drive, or the purpose of a IP or why you would Ping a computer.


Pointers or websites.....anyone????

Alarm Issues

I was so tired today. I don't know exactly why, but I was beat. I had an important appointment at three pm, and took off work early to get some rest. Normally when I get off work I don't really sleep before my appointments and sleep after. This time I left work early to sleep for a while before the appointment.

I set my alarm so I thought, laid down and slept. I slept so good, waking up about three-thirty. I had overslept. In six months, I have only missed one appointment, and been late to work two times. This really sucks. I set my alarm, but forgot to turn it on.

I really hope that there are no serious repercussions to this action.........

Change Number One

Well the first change will be my job. I am not quite sure how this one will pan out, either way it'll be good.

I went into work yesterday and had an email requesting my 'updated' resume from my supervisor. Turns out they are considering hiring me from a customer satisfaction agent to a technical agent, big difference.

If they decide not to take the risk on me, I will become unemployed again, receiving unemployment benefits by the end of the month.

Either way will be a change, neither drastic in pay, but both sending me in different directions.

A New Year A New Start

I don't know what this year will be for me, but I know last year was a year of growth.

I have learned to enjoy moments and learned what true friendship is about.

I have had a wonderful opportunity to learn to appreciate my significant other and truly get to know him. I love him and am so grateful that he walked back into my life.

I have been blessed to spend true quality time with my children and realize that time is important.

I look forward to the changes that will occur in my life this next year.

The only resolution is to make a goal to post on my blog more, so that I have a journal, a record of this year.

I don't know where to start and don't know how to end. The greatest pain that a mother can feel is knowing her children hurt. I am so scared. That's all I can say. I love of all my children, my family and friends. I have an amazing support system, if I let them.

I scrubbed the floor after they vomit all over the place. I wiped their butts through hundreds of diaper changes. I feed one with an eye dropper, while she was too sick to drink from a bottle. I held several tiny hands while they awoke from various surgeries. Bandaged and bruised I managed the best I could while I raised my 5 children.


Where was their dad? That's right "not his scheduled weekend". Surgeries I had he wouldn't take them. When they had owies or sickness he wouldn't take them. I struggled with behavioral problems....WHY? because I wouldn't bet them.

He has them 2 years, yes they don't act out, WHY? because if they do they are beat. I have pictures, doctor reports. I guess that's where I went wrong.

I am worried if he is on his own with the kids. I don't have to worry though. HIS MOTHER will take them in, that I can be grateful for. He won't have to do it ALONE.
