Another little day..

As some of you know… I work at a Credit Union. There are so many people that go in and out all day long, but today we haven’t had a single member come in, and we have been open for 35mins already. Well, I take that back... One guy came in to get a wire (in his pajamas I might add), but our manager handles that so I have helped no one… A mighty boring morning to say the least… so I have finished all my morning work and now I am blogging, because I need to blog to get some brain juices flowing!

So, a lot of changes have been going on in my life. I have moved in with my parents (thanks Mom and Dad!!), I bought a new car, I switched job locations, I made a new facebook profile and deactivated my old one, I changed my phone number and my email, I have my kids living with me most of the time and going to school by me (instead of just on weekends) and I have plans to start school soon to go into phlebotomy… but my blog remains the same. Why all the changes? Because it was time to grow up and do something more than chase boys and do things that only make me happy for a short while. I need some long term happy.. SO back to the books and into a cave for a while, just to regroup and save some money. I have the chance right now to pay some things off and get my feet on solid ground. It won’t even take that long! (Smiles!!) I got a promotion at my job and now I have the opportunity to get overtime as the need arises.

My kids are doing well too. Ellen is in fifth grade this year and has adjusted to the new school and home life very quickly. She made friends right away and has lots of energy and fun stories to tell me when I get home from work.
Aaron is a third grader this year and has had a little harder time making friends, but came home the other day beaming because he found a friend on the bus. He hasn’t had a hard time with the homework, but was not taking his ADHD meds for about a week or so... Sneaking them into the trash and into the door of the car when I wasn’t looking. Now I watch him swallow one every morning and I stand with him until it disappears into his throat... Little stinker. He is such a snuggly little guy and full of kisses and hugs for everyone. Sebastian is my Kindergarten baby and has been so cute with all the changes. He loves a kiss right on the lips before school and on the days that he has day care, he likes to be walked into the classroom and needs a kiss on the lips before I can leave. He likes his new teacher and the new Kindergarten Schedule. He likes that he only has school every Mon/Weds and every other Fri. He gets to spend Fridays with Grandma when he doesn’t have school and he really likes that. He has so many funny little stories for me and is so expressive when he shares them. He loves water and gets swimming time when he has Daycare days. I hear stories about the pools on those days... so much fun to have such wonderful kids and really caring parents that take us in and love us so much!!

My boyfriend is still “super Dan the Army man”. He is very busy these days, studying for an exam he needs to take before the beginning of Feb. so I don’t get to spend a whole lot of time with him right now, but we are hoping that will change in February when the test is over and done. He is a lot of fun. We enjoy spending time together cooking, working out, sitting in church, watching silly movies and dancing. It really is a challenge to be apart. He helps me be a better person and I hope I do the same for him. At times it is a real challenge to better ones self, but if it’s working, keep at it until you reach your goal! ;)
