out with the old, in with the new   Leave a comment

it is that time of year again to make those New Year Resolutions.
I have a few

one is of course to lose weight.
2012 is the year I am going to get thinner and healthier.

two is, I am going to pay off my credit cards and work on being dept free (besides the house and my car)

three is…….I will get to the Grand Canyon in 2012, even if I have to go by myself.

4 – be more appreciative of others and less critical.

5-work on the quality of life

I would love to go back to school, but I don’t see how that is possible with my husband retiring.

I have said goodbye to someone I loved once very much, and while it is a bit painful and raw feeling….I know it is for the best.

As another year closes, with the loss of my sister, it makes me realize yet again how fragile life is and how I take it for granted.

God willing we won’t lose anyone in 2012

baby it’s cold outside   1 comment

burr, it is cold out.
Okay 34 degrees might not seem that cold but for me today it is cold.
Plus we didn’t have the heat on at the school yesterday and it is quite nippy in here today.
I did turn the boiler on for a bit.
no doubt once I get moving it will warm up.

too busy   Leave a comment

ahh it is finally here, my days to work my butt off getting this school cleaned before I go on vacation.
I have two days and tons of things to do.

wash walls from floor to ceiling, wash tables and get cobwebs, scrub floors and make the place shine nice and pretty again.

I guess I best get to it

learning to let go   Leave a comment

You don’t have to say you love me

I already know you do

You don’t have to make me promises

when I know they will never come true

you don’t have to let me know you are thinking of me

I already know that you do

You just need to learn to let me go

And find someone else to love you

children   Leave a comment

The four of them bring me such joy and I love all four of them very dearly.

Paula emailed me the other day, which is a treasured gift, even though she couldn’t bring herself to sign the email, “Love Paula” it was still very nice to hear from her.

My husband and I spent a few hours with Matt and his two girls last night.
It was enjoyable to talk to him and listen to him.
he has a very good head on his shoulders and is a good man.

Brian is still struggling with trying to get this house they want so badly.
I wish it was all easier for him.
But hopefully it will all pan out by the end of January.

Emily is aloof and wanting to be unattached and do what she wants without having to answer to anyone.
I understand that she is 22 and quite young.
But I wish she would have figured a few things out before she had Aaron.
All her decisions affect that little boy and it pains me to see her being selfish.

I realize I am not perfect and have made hundreds of mistakes.
I just wish things were easier for my children.
And as a mother, I am quite sure there are millions of women in this world who wish the same for their children.

I am a blessed woman.

a short work week   Leave a comment

the kids are here for the next two days, and then I am  here cleaning like mad till Thursday.

And then I am off for seventeen days!

there is a lot to do in those two days that the kids are here, and even dozens more after they are gone on Wednesday and Thursday.

I almost don’t mind being here.
