Now I Can Get Back to Work!




Today is the first day of school for us. Yeah! I’m excited to get some alone time. I know I will miss my children but now they will not be bored. All summer, every day, I heard, “I’m bored, I have nothing to do!” Well now they have something to do! lol


My daughter, who is 6, said, “you just want to get rid of us”. I said, “no, but when you go to school you will have children to play with and will play and learn and have so much fun!”


So now I can get back to work. I feel like I’ve neglected my blog over the summer. I usually post once a day and recently I was lucky to get a post up once a week. I am ready to get writing and interacting with all my readers!

And….maybe hanging out at the pool with a good book – by myself! ;)


When do your children go back to school?

Right Now I Am….

Summer is in full swing and there are so many things going on it’s hard to keep up! As I sit at Nissan waiting for my oil to be changed I will update you all.

Right now I am…nervous about a job interview tomorrow. I’m applying to our new school to work as a para professional.

I am….glad that my son had a great time at sleep away camp last week.

I am…. frustrated that my daughter can’t play by herself. I am her playmate. While I don’t mind it most of the time I need some time by self.

I am….worried about my son. He wants to fly up to Indiana by himself to visit family.

I am….excited! I starting selling Jamberry Nails. They are so fun!!

I am….thinking of ways to keep my daughter busy this summer.

I am….thankful that we have a buyer for our old house. The contract has been signed and hopefully everything will work out.

I am….thinking I need to get busy and work on my blog!

What are you doing right now?

I Faced My Fear – Bridges!!


I’ve mentioned before that I have a fear of high bridges. I’m okay with low ones or even long ones, it’s the high ones that get me. Bridges and high over passes. They freak me out and I’m afraid I will go off and over the edge. I know it’s an irrational fear but it’s there just the same. I’ve gotten better over the last two years and am okay with someone else driving, sometimes.


My daughter and I are taking a trip tomorrow over to the Tampa/St. Pete area and the Sunshine State Bridge is over there and I may have to cross it. Here is a picture of the Sunshine State Bridge.




I had to cross that bridge seven years ago and was terrified! I made my mother drive over but it was still frightening.

So Friday, the first day of Spring Break for us, I gathered up the kids and we went driving north to the Dames Point Bridge in Jacksonville.




Both bridges are the same height but the Sunshine State Bridge is 10,000 feet longer.  So I drove and drove until I saw that bridge coming and I turned up the radio, made the air cooler and took a drink of water and I went over it!

But then I had to turn around and do it again! I pulled off the highway and sat for a few minutes and then made the drive back home. The second time was not as bad.

I definitely need more practice but I hope this will suffice for our trip tomorrow. Maybe I won’t even see the Sunshine State Bridge at all…. I can hope can’t I?



                            Do you have a fear of bridges?

Right Now I Am…



Feeling terrible….I have a sinus cold and my head is killing me.

Nervous….I have a test to take on Saturday. I’m taking a Para Professional test to become a teacher’s aide. It’s at 7:30am, which means I have to leave my house at 6:30 and I’m hoping I feel better by then.

Concerned….My husband has an infection in his throat, my son has an ear infection and cough. I’m hoping my daughter doesn’t come down with anything.

Tired of this cold weather…I really want Spring to come soon.

Okay, enough complaining….

Happy….I had a small birthday party for my brother and he thought it was the best thing ever!

Thankful….I have a roof over our head and food to eat.

Excited…..Spring break is in a week and a half. No need to get up early!!

Happy…..that is will be in the 70’s for a few days coming up soon.



                                          How are you doing this week?




Right Now I Am…

Florida Snow

Stressed – I have a charity dinner this Sunday that I need donations for and I’m just now asking for them!

Worried – About my son. He’s 13 and moody and I worry that there’s more to it than hormones.

Sore – I have a minor tear in my neck which I guess is not serious but still adds discomfort.

Happy – That my charity group is starting a new year with a lot of fun projects coming up!

Thankful – That everyone is well.

Thinking – Way too much about everything…

Happy – My brother is visiting and may be moving down permanently.

Worried – He won’t have a place to live.

Glad – I live in Florida even though it was really cold last week it was not as cold as most of you were.
