Fallen to the wayside.

I started back to work about month ago now, Bradly started Fall ball, swim lessons, trying to fit in family time with all of us working now. It's been super busy! Bill is working less hours, B is working the evening shift at a local eatery  B2's baseball season just came to an end, BB is still struggling with the transition into school-hood,  Bay is...Bay, as awesome as she can be. Blogging has fallen to the wayside. I am going to try to pick it back up! Be prepared for some heavy, emotional posts, or so stupid flaky posts. This will be continued! Happy short work week!

Worse off than us.

There is a policy in our school district stating if a child's family is homeless we are required to drive up to 50 miles to pick the child up for school. And drive them back to where they are staying. The need for this policy makes me realize we are doing better than some. We have made some really poor financial decisions as of late and are paying the consequences now.

I pray we make the deadline of Friday, but things just keep piling up. Bill was supposed to work 8 hrs overtime yesterday and 5 today but they lost power. He got in 7 if the anticipated 13. If you pray, please pray for us. For us to make the deadline, for us to become financially smarter, for us to just do the right thing. Positive thoughts and vibes welcomed too!

The policy of the homeless transport may become a reality for us, but knowing it's there, for situations like this eases my mind a little, HOWEVER, us bus drivers dislike driving that far :-)

Not myself

I have found myself being a mean spirited girl, no thought to feelings to others, just nastiness from me. Why do I treat others horribly? They don't deserve it, I know better. how can I teach my children how to treat people when I can't be nice myself. I have some work, on myself, that I need to do. I think I need to start running again, at least then I had an outlet. I'm praying life gets a bit easier for us, lots of changes has happened recently, some still to come. I'm sorry to those I've hurt. I'm not myself.

We went to the park today! It was so much fun! I even slid down the slide!
Came home for bath time. Then a sleepover.

Day 16: What are your 5 greatest accomplishments?

Well now, that's easy!




They are my best accomplishments!

I have also accomplished a few other things in life, I have a great career that I love and works well for raising a family! (Shout out to my mommy #2! Thanks for taking care of my babies when I can't!)

I am working on this accomplishment, as I have lost 55 lbs but would also like to work on my health. Exercise, eating right, teaching my children to be the same. That is a work in progress. As a wise woman once said "progress, not perfection". Miss you Maryann!
