As the World Turns


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! 🙂

Merry Christmas Eve!


It’s holiday time, in case you were in a deeper hole that I am!

Saturday night was a blast!  The girls and I went to 4 or 5 different places, drank, danced and laughed!  It was  awesome!  Despite some babysitter confagle and words with my soon to be ex, it was an alright night.  The big thing from that night is that he finally let some of his feelings out (pretty much let me have it), stuff I guess he had been holding in.  It all knocked me to the ground.  I knew that night that he for certain does not love me, has not in a while, and will not again.  It’s something I had hoped for, but now know and hopefully can move on.


Today kind of has sucked.  All the friends that I chat with off and on thoughout the day are with their families or traveling.  I have no one here except the boys.  While people are doing family things together, I’m trying to be that family for my boys.  Ex will be here later tonight, and we’ll hang out with the boys.


Nothing else is going on, I’m working on me.  🙂
