Welcome to My New Website & Blog 2018 >^..^<

Happy New Year Everyone.

Hard to believe it is already 2018. This past year for me, and many people, had been a really rough year. For that reason alone, it made it seem like a VERY long year. But now that it is 2018, it seems that last year just flew by. I pray that this new year brings more peace, joy, and better health my way and everyone else’s way as well.

This post is actually second, date wise, in line behind the introduction of Sunny and Stormy. I meant to do an initial HELLO and introduction post about myself but I find it is much easier to talk about other things, especially the antics of the “Boyz” as I often refer to them.

I just wanted to write this brief post to say hello and have a starting point for this year and going forward. The posts before this are imported from my old blog that I had created on Blogger. As you can tell by the dates, I was bad at keeping up with my blog. I always had so much going on. I did not want lose those posts so I included them here. Kind of an insight to the craziness of my life back then.

Any how, it is currently 25° and a light flurry going on here in Fayette County Ohio. My streets are still snow-covered. I am not sure how much snow we are supposed to get. Yuck. Be safe out there. >^..^<

Another New Year 2015

Again, I have been very lax in keeping up with my blogging. Oh, I am sure I could come up with plenty to ramble on about, but usually Facebook wins and I end up wasting my time on there.

As the title of this entry states, another new year is upon us. I hope this one is a bit kinder than last year. So much loss and sadness last year, that and the continued adventures with my back.

At this point, all four of my boys are alive and well. Heard bad news about my older two son’s dad. I pray that they will be strong and get through the next several months and enjoy the time left they have with their dad. My younger two live with their dad, so I am sure they are enjoying their daily adventures.

I did not get to see any of my boys for the holidays, which was a bummer, but I was working so it kept me busy and keot me from spending time dwelling on it. I am working full-time, through an agency, at one of the two local prisons. Very interesting. Nothing like any of the other nursing I have done. Have to continuously be aware of my surroundings and watch my back.

Yesterday was the first day of the spring semester. I am going to take three classes, which will leave me with only the capstone class left to complete for the Bachelors degree, the BSN. It will be a long 15 weeks doing both school and work, but I am in desperate need for another reliable and safe vehicle and there are always bills that need paid.

Oh, my granddaughter is now 21 months old. I did not get to see her over the holidays. Last time I seen her was this past 4th of July. But I am told she is doing ok. I miss her so much.

Well. I shall close for now. I have a bad habit of procrastinating when it comes to school work, and I have already had some technical difficulties with some of the online stuff for my class. Going to be a stressful semester but I am so close to finishing. Finally able to see some light at the end of the tunnel.

Take care and be safe everyone. >^..^<

New Year…

Happy New Year 2014.

I haven’t really put any effort to this blog and feel bad about it. I have just had so much else going on.

December 24th, I lost my mother. She was only 65. She had not been well for quite some time. I miss her so much. I am so glad I got to get home to see her the summer of 2012. I hadn’t been home before this for 16 years. I treasure that visit and the pictures. Did I say I really missed my Mom??

I am very grateful to Todd for making sure I got to get home to the wake. If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t have been able to get up to say goodbye to my Mom.

I lost my hospital nursing job the end of November 😦 I am in limbo at present because it is hard to even get an interview when you have to explain why you don’t have a good hospital job and why I am under current physical restrictions from the occupational health doctor.

I am hoping to get squared around and be able to get started back on classes towards my BSN degree. The semester started Monday, so I am already behind. I am needing to explore other options as an RN that don’t require the physicality that being a floor nurse in a hospital or nursing home requires. I have worked so hard to earn the degree and nursing licenses I hold. It really upsets me that I may be limited because of my back and my health. Last thing I want to do is to put a patient in harm’s way because I hurt.

Well. Just piddling around here. Will close for now. Be safe out there. >^..^<
