DRIFTING AWAY?

THATS WHAT I FEEL LIKE IVE BEEN DOING FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS...DRIFTING. I HAVE BEEN SO USE TO BEING AT HOME AND HAVING TIME TO DO WHAT I WANTED WHEN I WANTED THAT IVE HAD TO STOP AND RECOLLECT THESE PAST TWO WEEKS.
I HAVE STARTED THIS WEEK AT THE DOCTORS OFFICE THAT I WAS TRAINING FOR LAST WEEK. I REALLY LIKE IT. IT IS LAID BACK AND EASY GOING. GOOD THING FOR ME SINCE I LIKE THAT KINDA JOB. ITS NOT BUSY AT ALL. I HOPE THAT WORK WILL PICK UP IN THE FUTURE BUT I WILL NOT COMPLAIN UNTIL THEN. IM NOT COMPLAINING NOW, JUST A SNEEK PEEK INTO WHAT THEY ARE WORKING HARD TO DO.

LIFE HERE HASNT CHANGED MUCH. I STILL TAKE THE GIRLS TO SCHOOL, BUT I HAVE PICKED THEM UP MORE IN THE PAST TWO WEEKS. THEY LOVE THAT PART OF THE JOB. THEY TELL ME ITS JUST NOT KOOL TO RIDE THE BUS. MAYBE NOT BUT MY TAXES AT WORK...WHO CARES ABOUT KOOL. IT DOESNT HURT MY PRIDE AT ALL.

I HAVE TO BOAST A LITTLE. REPORT CARDS COME OUT WEDNESDAY. I WILL TELL YOU THAT "BOTH" OF THE GIRLS MADE …

FALLING BACK INTO AN OLD ROUTINE

THIS WEEK HAS BEEN A ROLLER COASTER OF THINGS GOING ON. THE MAIN THING IS I STARTED MY NEW JOB AS I THINK I HAVE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT. THE END OF THE WEEK HAS REALLY COME FAST. THAT IS UNUSUAL I KNOW BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT I HAVE FOUND MY CALLING. IT TAKES SOME PEOPLE A WHOLE LIFE TIME TO FIND IT BUT I REALLY LOVE BEING A PHLEBOTOMIST(THE ONE WHO DRAWS BLOOD JUST IN CASE YOU DIDNT KNOW). THE INTERACTION WITH PEOPLE REALLY MAKES MY HEART SING A SONG.

I UNDERSTAND THE CRINGE WHEN YOU WILL READ THIS. MOST PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE TO HAVE BLOOD DRAWN BUT WHEN YOU DO ...YOU ALWAYS REMEMBER THE ONE WHO DOES THE DIRTY DEED. I TRY MY BEST TO MAKE IT THE BEST IT CAN BE. I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT SOME PEOPLE JUST REALLY DONT CARE BECAUSE THEY ARE TERRIFIED. I UNDERSTAND THAT ALSO AND I TAKE THAT ALL TO HEART.

I HAVE BEEN CERTIFIED FOR YEARS AND GOT OUT OF THE GROOVE TO BE HOME MORE WITH MY KIDS BUT THE OLD SAYING ABOUT RIDING THE BICYCLE...YOU KNOW THE ONE...THE ONE THAT SAYS ITS LIKE RIDING…

FIRST DAY JITTERS

TODAY I STARTED A NEW JOB. I HAVE BEEN PREPARING FOR THIS NEW POSITION FOR THE PAST MONTH. THIS JOB POSITION IS A OLD/ NEW CAREER FOR ME. YOU SEE OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL I WENT DIRECTLY INTO THE MEDICAL FIELD. I HAVE WORKED IN THE MEDICAL FIELD OFF AND ON SINCE THEN UP UNTIL THE BIRTH OF MY TWIN GIRLS. AT THAT TIME I MADE THE DECISION TO STAY HOME WHERE I WAS NEEDED MORE. I HAVE NEVER REGRETTED CHANGING FROM WORKING MOM TO STAY AT HOME MOM. IT WAS A TIME THAT I COULD HAVE NEVER IMAGINED NOT DOING. THE FIRST SMILES, THE FIRST STEPS ...AND ALL THE FIRST THAT I WOULD HAVE MISSED. MAN, I REALLY CANT IMAGINE.

AS THE YEARS HAVE PASSED ME BY I STARTED TO GET INTO THE WORKING WORLD AGAIN. IT STARTED SLOWLY AND BECAME A RAT RACE I CALLED EVERYDAY LIFE. IT WASNT LONG BEFORE THINGS SLOWED ME DOWN AGAIN AND I DECIDED I WAS NEEDED AT HOME AGAIN. SO ...I CAME HOME FOR A SHORT WHILE. I HAVE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO WORK FROM HOME DOING A SECOND CAREER THAT I PICKED UP ALONG THE ROAD OF LIFE. IT …

And the Wheels on the truck halted

A few years ago I was involved in a accident. This accident changed me forever. I am so causious now that I scare myself. I look two or three times before pulling out of somewhere and even have someone check behind me when changing lanes (if I have and adult riding that I nominate to be the side car driver). If you've ever experienced an accident I'm sure you can relate.

Well, out for an afternoon of going to the bank for myself and my bestest friend in the whole wide world, I decided it would be a nice treat to let my girls go to Mikey D's for a treat. I live in a small town with only two red lights so its not like its a big town, anyway, I had just left the bank and I preceed to McDonald's ...then I see this little brownish car pulling out of a side rode. I slowed down ..to be nice...lol...he stopped...I sped up again...he stopped...he proceeded to pull further out into the street and AGAIN...I stopped.....well the third time is the charm right...WRONG....I …

WHAT I THINK?

As I was growing up I would often sit and listen to my mom or dad tell me what I should do or what I was going to do (if i wanted to live here under their roof), and wonder why dont you ask me what I think I should do? This moment in time has been poking its head into my now grown up life as I try to tell my soon to be 17 year old son what I now know what he needs to do. The blank look on his face when I "suggest" what he might do tells me those words that I hear in the back of my mind ("You'll see one day when you have kids") were true. I would only admit this to ...well ...me.
The thing I cant comprehend is how much the world is changing. When I was young(er)...I would have never and I mean NEVER talked with such sturness to my parents. I was too afraid that I would get grounded or at the worst end up with no teeth. Not that my parents ever threatened me with that, but I had an understanding from a very young age that respect was the upmost important th…

Another Day in Paradise

Another day has come and is almost at the end. I sit here several times a day and drift to my own paradise. You know the one I'm talking about. The white sand beaches on a far away carribean island, the one where the boats are going by as you sit on the dock at the lake, the feeling of relaxing while getting that massage at a day spa...ect.. I think you get my drift. Anyway, then I am brought back to reality when I hear my two girls screaming at eachother in the other room. I call out to both of them. "Come here both of you". With that "oh Lord" look in their eyes they slowly walk to me. After hearing both sides of the story ...I am forced just to tell them to return to their room and play nice. By the way this fighting was all because one of my girls ken doll wanted to break up with the other ones barbie. Can you believe the imagination of kids. Anyway i come to realize on finding paradise that I have my own. They are the ones fighting at the en…
