This blog has clearly been neglected.
I keep trying to think of a way to begin blogging again and I guess the only way to start is...well, to start.
We could go into how the world is in despair, uncontrollable fires, wars, shootings #vegasstrong, ravaging hurricanes, Donald Trump is president*, but I don't really want this to be a blog about politics and news. I want it to be me figuring out life and sharing pretty things. There is obviously enough ugly out there. I can't pretend I don't have feelings about what's happening in the world but I'm trying to be a more positive person. So, here's to trying...
Let's catch you up on life, my life in particular.
Kids are teen and preteen now. Seriously though, how in the world did that happen? Gone are the days of the elementary parties,crafting sessions, play dates and naps and here are the days of attitudes, new influences, puberty and independence. I have to admit, I relate way more to my kids now. I love having actual conversations with my son and daughter as opposed to being the only one who has oppinions or feelings. Its too much pressure to be the only one talking all of the time. Dont get me wrong, I think they're wrong most of the time but I guess thats what my parents thought too. "Kids these days!" I do miss their snuggles though.
We've just remodeled our house. It started off as a kitchen remodel and then became a complete overhaul. 5 months of fast food and 1 bathroom for 4 people. Cue first world problem violin.
I'll add some photos later.
I am officially a working woman. Its been a long time since I've had an actual job that paid in real life money and not in snot,hugs and lego creations. Im working for a respected wedding planner in our area. She's great. Me, I got some wrinkles to iron out. Im much more lazy than I used to be and picky. I guess entering the work force again at almost 40 is wierd for everyone. Im not cynical though. I still think I can do anything and be anything. It's actually quite delusional but I've heard that billionaires were often looked at like they were crazy, so I say I'm sticking to my guns.
Although I like my job a lot, I need to go back to school. I have to try to finish the degree that will never end. I feel a higher calling to do bigger and more helpful things. Like run the RedCross, Run a food bank or maybe some sort of international relations. Maybe I dont though. In my old age, I'm still incredibly idealistic but lacking in bravery. I fear idiots and the inability to get through to them. Or maybe I'm just afraid of punching people and going to jail. Just kidding. Im not violent.
Lets see...life is wierd right now. Again, Donald Trump is president.
Until next time.
*For those that might be offended by my assertion that Donald Trump is a part of the despair in the world...just read the mans twitter feed. In my heart, I am a true American patriot that loves our country,military and way of life but this man is an idiot. I would very much like to support the POTUS but when I can't stop cringing or eyerolling because of his rants or unitelligent insults, it makes it very hard to stand up for him. I wish he would just put down his phone, then I can atleast try to like him for the next 3 and a half years. (Provided he doesnt build his ridiculous wall, then I will be forced to join arms and protest his lunacy. Reform not waste!)
**Edit- I have half a mind to erase the part apart about the president but it would be against what I believe and who I am but I will say this, I have no intention on making this a political blog. We may have political differences and Im open for discussion but I have no interest in having all out debates with others so I will leave my politics at the door. Cheers!
