The Woman Behind The Mask~   Leave a comment

Do you ever feel like you aren’t living up to your potential?
Do you ever feel like no one knows the real you?
I contemplate these thoughts quite often of late.

Who am I if not a wife, mother and grandmother?
Who am I standing alone?
Who am I behind the mask?

If there was no one to think about but myself where would I be?
Where would I live?
What would I be doing with myself?

I live in West Liberty Iowa because that is where my husband wants to live.

I wrap my life around my four kids and their families.

My six grand children whom I adore and would never ever want to live without.

But if I woke up tomorrow and it was just me, where would I go and what would I do?

Deep down I want to live a simpler life.

I want to live off the land, live away from civilization

Live in complete oneness with the earth.

Don’t get me wrong, I do not want my life to change in anyway shape or form.

But I sometimes wonder if it was just me where would I be?
Definitely not in West Liberty Iowa

I see myself in Montana or Wyoming or Utah.

living simply

I think I am going to like it~   Leave a comment

So I did my first third shift last night as a CNA.

I liked it.
It went fast and I enjoy the work.

I hope it keeps going well.

Got home at six fifteen, was in bed by seven.

Slept till ten thirty, got up to go the bathroom and went back to bed and got up at two.

Showered and made chicken fajita’s for a late lunch early supper

Now it is four pm and I have a little less than six hours before I have to be back at work.

I will try and nap again before I go.

Probably around six or seven.

I have tomorrow night off so I will only sleep about three hours tomorrow morning.

WE don’t have the kids until WEdnesday so not sure what we will do tomorrow.

There are always things I could do.

I don’t have to leave the house to keep busy.

But we shall see.


Oh on another note we went to “Knives Out” the other day and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

A rather dumb movie for all the big stars that were in it.
