It’s amazing to scroll back through my old blog posts … and see how much I’ve grown and changed over the years. I’ve made some posts private, but did leave many of the ones where I poured my heart and soul out. Dealing with a divorce and depression is difficult, and I hope maybe someone will scroll across them … and find encouragement and strength.
It’s awesome to look back things I said … wanting to teach, getting my Bachelor’s and then my Master’s degree. I’m doing all that. Yes, I’m living my dream! I’ve been teaching nursing, this being my fourth year … and I love it. I have my Master’s degree (December 2015), and now I am enrolled and working on my Doctorate of Education.
My husband and I have been blessed in our home (did an expansion for more rooms!) and travel (we LOVE cruising). The kids are amazing …
No, my life isn’t peaches all the time. But I wouldn’t change it any … well, of course … I would always take more shoes and purses! 🙂
Monday has passed, and I’m late again. Here’s part SEVEN.
I do agree that adult time is just as important. Mike and I try to find things and the time to do things with one another. Even if it’s out to dinner for an hour or so, it makes a difference. Allows us to talk without “mama!” being called all the time. But we do both also have our alone time, without each other too. I think this keeps our feet grounded and lets us remember who we are. I like to surf the web, blog, read, etc. Mike likes to take his bike out (dang, I need to post those pictures for you) or take the boat out.
Remember while being parents, we can still have fun, and be kids ourselves!
So this should have maybe gone with #2, but I felt it deserved it’s very own! Inside my new car today was a wee little black bag, which had a wee little black box. hehe, see where I’m going? Inside the wee little black box was a wee GOR-GEE-OUS ring! Yeah Spoiled ME! I can’t find a good picture of it, nor can I take one, but here is something similar. Mine is a round, with four stones down each side. Mine is raised a bit more than the picture, and beneath the big stone, it sits on 6 little round stones. SO pretty! I lurve it! And I love Michael! Thank you!!!
