I'm sorry I haven't posted since January. I will try to do better. Life got crazy, messed up, and depressing, and I just didn't feel like posting. Plus I also found Pinterest, and Words With Friends...damn things occupy to much time LOL.
I'll give you a tiny briefing on things that have gone on over the months.
*I'm still fat, fatter even due to stress eating.
*Got a new frig, don't remember if I told you guys that or not...I think I told you all that the other one broke.
*Dealing with daughter stuff.
*Water heater broke, got fixed fast thankfully.
*My daughter Kelsey graduates this month, trying to plan a party for that on little teeny tiny budget...
*Prom & more prom. Thanks to my mom for helping Kelsey get the dress she LOVES. Prom is expensive. Not just a dress to deal with, gotta buy tickets, flowers, shoes, make up stuff, jewelry...the list goes on and on. Of course money is tight, so some things are being cut out, no professional hairdo, or acrylic nails...to which my daughter is not pleased...but I think she looks beautiful without that. She went to one prom last weekend and is going to her schools this weekend.
*Kelsey & Zach's grandfather (my former father in law) died in Feb. after a long battle with cancer. My mom was nice and traveled with me to attend his visitation. He was a great man and will be missed.
*Zach is doing well. Yay. He has a boyfriend, who I have yet to meet, but everyone that has met him loves him. Austin seems to be good for Zach and Zach has grown up a lot.
*Jilly & Aubrey used to get along so nice and spend hours playing together...not so much anymore. Jilly loves to tick off Aubrey, causing Aubrey to scream and cry...its not fun.
*Money's been super tight, and it will be getting worse. Child support for Kelsey ends when she graduates, so chances are high I'll have to get some kind of job, still trying to figure out what kind and what kind of hours I'll be able to work.
*Speaking of money... Bill's day job, the one he has worked for 24 yrs, will no longer be as of May 28. We were told last month that RR Donnelley & Sons are closing doors at the Mendota plant forever. Yikes. Thankfully Bill has his second job, and he'll be getting a severance package from RRD...it'll help till he finds something else. Please say prayers for us.
*Jilly is looking forward to summer, when she gets to go visit her dad, she misses him.
*Aubrey had pre-school screening and did well. We are hoping to get her into one of the free pre-schools here in town for fall. She is already excited about it.
*I've been down in the dumps. Stress is bothering me. Night after night of interrupted sleep isn't helping either. I pee a lot at night, guess I'm old and have a crappy bladder, all those trips to the bathroom, and all of Aubrey's night wakings make for bad bad sleep for me.
*Aubrey almost never sleeps all night. She talks in her sleep. She dreams a lot, and several nights a week she wakes up from them and yells for me. I then have to go in there and listen to her tell me about her dreams, or if its a bad one I have to calm her down and get her back to sleep. She is sleeping in her own bed now, I used to let her sleep with me when Bill worked but I got sick and tired of being kicked in the face and other places all night so I put an end to that.
*Bill's youngest brother got remarried last weekend. I love weddings. Jilly & Aubrey had a blast at the reception dancing. At 10:15 we left, Aubrey was still dancing at the time and wanting to stay...I would have loved to stay longer, but Bill was tired and cranky and wanting to go.
*I'm trying to sell my son's car, the car that used to be mine..its been sitting in my driveway for a year or more. He finally gave me the title (he still owed me money from when he bought it from me so I told him to fork it over, and we are even), so please pray for a buyer, and fast! The cops (hot cops dad actually) put a sticker thing on it the other day saying we have 10 days to move it or it could be impounded. Bah. Its on my property, I should be allowed to have it there if I want it. It's not pretty but not that bad of an eye sore, there are so many worse things sitting at houses in our area, leave me alone I have enough crap to deal with now!
*Kelsey has had 2 interviews, a drug test, and now a physical for a job here in town at a nursing home. Cross your fingers all goes well and she for sure gets this job! It'll be perfect for her. She gets her CNA license this month (takes the test May 17th), she'll be putting that to good use at this job, and its close to home, a 2 minute drive!
*I come back to blogger and its all changed! I have no idea how to use it anymore...If this post comes out looking funny, sorry.
Well, that is a bit of stuff that has gone on, there is more, but I don't want to bore the pants off you. I will try to post more often...but we'll see how it goes. Maybe next post I'll put up some pics to bore you with :)
