JUST A LITTLE BEHIND

I DONT HAVE ANY GOOD REASON FOR NOT POSTING FOR AWHILE. I HAVE BEEN BUSY. SIMPLE AS THAT. I WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR WORKING, COMING HOME, CLEANING, COOKING SUPPER AND SPENDING TIME WITH MY FAMILY. I JUST SEE THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENT NOW AND I WANT TO SOAK AS MUCH AS EACH DAY IN AS I CAN.

THINGS HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF MY TOWN HAVE BEEN GOING GREAT. THE ECONOMY SUCKS BUT IM NOT THE ONLY ONE SUFFERING BECAUSE OF IT. EVERYONE IS SHORT ON MONEY AND SHORT ON HUMOR. NOTHING IS FUNNY ANYMORE. ITS STRESS PILED UP WITH MORE STRESS. I DONT SEE HOW PEOPLE EXPECT YOU DO WHAT CANT BE DONE BUT THEY DO. I JUST LOOK AT THEM WITH THE "WHATEVER" LOOK.

AS FOR MORE HAPPIER THINGS. CHRIS AND I ARE DOING GREAT. HE HAS BECOME SO IMPORTANT TO ME. THE GIRLS HAVE BECOME ATTACHED TO HIM AND MATTHEW. MATTHEW IS LIKE ANOTHER CHILD OF MINE. WE ALL HAVE OUR MOMENTS BUT AT NIGHT ITS LIKE THE WALTONS AROUND HERE. ITS GOODNIGHTS WITH LOTS OF HUGS AND KISSES TO GO AROUND. WE HAVE ALL SAID THAT WE …

So Proud!!!

Recently I have been very busy with all the sports that are being played. Its really hard to sit still for too long due to the fact that when I get off of work, I come home, do some cleaning and its off to the ballfield or track field.

Matthew(Chris's son-ya know my new man...hee hee), is such a great athlete. I think I have told you that in an earlier post, but he is really commited to sports. This past week he went to lower state playoffs in Charleston. He ran so good. He ran his race and qualified to go to State. We head off this coming weekend to Lower Richland County High School for him to compete. We all will be there to cheer him on. GOOD LUCK MATTHEW!!...( I will post later with an update on the results)

The girls have a game tonight. Im not exactly sure who we play but what does that matter. It never does. They play and I cheer them on.

This post is short but I have to go clean a little before its time to head out again. Have a Great Day.

WHAT DO I SAY.

This morning as I was doing my normal morning talk with Hope, I made a comment about her not posting as often as she use to. Well, she replied "What about you?". So..I figured I could not let another day go by that I didnt blog.

I have been very busy lately. The softball, baseball and track games have been keeping all of us on the road and not at home. I love ball season. It has always thrilled my soul to see all the kids out there enjoying themselves. It doesnt hurt that Emily and Erica are playing and they just are great. Matthew (might as well say he mine too) is running track and playing baseball. The track meets and baseball games and practice have so far fell into place so we could do it all. All the kids have been doing their best. They get out there and are so headstrong.

Emily and Erica have been juggling positions this year. Emily, last year, played catcher all year. She got use to it. This year with all the "newness" with different position…

WINTER CLEANING....APRING ANEW

I HAVE OFTEN WONDERED WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO BE REALLY HAPPY. IF ONLY FOR A MOMENT I AM THAT. HAPPY. CONTENT. AND ONLY A LITTLE STRESSED.

EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT THEIR OWN ROUTINE IS OF SPRING CLEANING. WELL I HAVE INVENTED MY OWN CLEANING. W---I---N---T---E---R (SEASON THAT I DECIDED TO DO AWAY WITH SOME "ONE")
I CLEANED IT OF ALL THE NEGATIVE ( MY EX BOY-FRIEND OF 9 LONG YEARS.)I GOT RID OF THE OLD ONE THAT WAS USELESS AND ALL THE OTHER STUFF I JUST DIDNT WANT ANYMORE AND MADE HIM LEAVE.

I HONESTLY AND TRULY AM GLAD I DID THIS. IT TOOK ALOT OF DETERMINATION. I HAVE TRIED TO DO THIS FOR AWHILE BUT SOMETIMES ITS HARDER TO DO THAN TO SAY YOU WANT TO. I WAS TIRED OF WHAT MY LIFE HAD BECOME. I THINK ALOT OF NERVOUSNESS WAS DUE TO INSECURITY, THE LACK OF KNOWING, AND JUST PLAIN SCARED. I HAD GOOD FRIENDS TO GET ME THRU THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS.
TO MY SUPRIZE EACH DAY HAS GOTTEN EASIER. ANOTHER THINGS IS IS THAT I HAVE FOUND SOMETHING THAT MAKES EACH DAY A LITTLE MORE ENJOYABLE(W…
THINGS HERE ARE GOING GOOD. EMILY AND ERICA HAVE SIGNED UP FOR SOFTBALL. EMILY IS MORE EXCITED THAN ERICA. ERICA IS SCARED OF THE BALL SO SHE HAS A TENDENCY TO BACK OUT OF THE BOX. LAST YEAR THE GIRLS AGED 9-12 WERE ON TEAMS. EM AND ER TEAM WERE ALL NEW PLAYERS. THEY WERE SCARED AND WHEN THOSE OLDER GIRLS GOT UP THERE AND THREW THOSE PITCHES, IT REALLY FRIGHTENED THEM. THIS YEAR WILL BE A LITTEL DIFFERENT. THEY ARE HOPING TO SEPERATE THE 9-10 YEAR OLDS AND THEN THE 11-12 YEAR OLDS. I THINK THIS IS A WONDERFUL IDEA. IT GIVES THE YOUNG ONES TIME TO ADJUST.

WE WILL BE TRAVELING THIS YEAR DUE TO THE CHANGE. ITS NOT LIKE WE HAVE TO GO FAR BUT SOME OF THE PARENTS DONT LIKE THAT IDEA. ME..I GO WITH IT BECAUSE I ENJOY SEEING MY GIRLS MINGLE WITH THEIR OWN TEAMMATES AND THE OTHER TEAM ALSO.

I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED BASEBALL/SOFTBALL SEASON. WE HAVE A SMALL TOWN AND IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE IS SO INTO THIS SEASON AS WELL. SO MANY FAMILIES ARE OUT THERE. SOME OF THEM I HAVE NEVER SEEN. I…

Is life sometime this cozy?

I WONDER HOW IN LIFE YOU PASS THINGS BY JUST TO HAVE THEM COME BACK AROUND IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT.

I REALLY CANT ELABERATE ON WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. I WILL TELL YOU THAT SOMETHING IN MY LIFE THAT I HAVE PUSHED AWAY SEVERAL TIMES PRESENTED ITSELF TO ME A COUPLE OF MONTHS BACK AND FOR SOME REASON I WAS INCLINED TO JUST SEE IF IT "FIT" OR NOT. WELL SO FAR SO GOOD. I REALLY HADN'T NEVER TOOK THE TIME TO SEE THE TRUE "FIT" BUT NOW THAT I HAVE PUT IT ON AND AM STANDING IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR IT LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT JUST BE A KEEPER. IM NOT QUITE SURE YET SO I THINK I MIGHT JUST STAND HERE FOR A WHILE JUST TO MAKE SURE BEFORE I BUY IT. ONE THING IS FOR SURE....IT LOOKS NICE, FEELS GOOD, AND MAKES ME FEEL BETTER ABOUT LIFE IN GENERAL. ISNT THAT WHY WE GO SHOPPING FOR NEW THINGS. ISNT THAT WHY WE STAND THERE AND TWIRL IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR? SOMETIMES ITS WORTH THE WAIT TO FIND THAT PERFECT "FIT".

COME BACK LATER TO FIND OUT WHAT THE HECK IM TALKING ABOUT…

And the future is....

ITS HARD FOR TO ME IMAGINE WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS. I HAVE BEEN WONDERING FOR SO LONG THAT I JUST HAVE MADE UP MY MIND TO RELAX AND LET THE DAYS COME DAY BY DAY.
TO START OFF WITH THAT IS EASIER SAID THAN DONE. ITS THE OBSTACLES IN THE WAYS THAT MAKE IT HARD.

SOME THINGS HAVE CHANGED SINCE MY LAST POST AND THE CHANGES HAVE MADE MY LIFE ...COMPLICATED. I HAVE THOUGHT MANY TIMES TO COME AND POST BUT GOT SIDETRACKED...BAD..

THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS WERE TOUGH. THIS WAS THE FIRST CHRISTMAS WITHOUT MY MOM AND TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE PARENTS STILL WITH YOU...TAKE IN EVERY MOMENT YOU CAN WITH THEM. IT WAS SO HARD LOOKING AT THE HOLIDAYS THE SAME. I DID IT THOUGH. I HAVE TWO LITTLE GIRLS THAT WERE LOOKING FORWARD TO ALL THE GLITZ AND GLAMOUR. THE REAL REASON FOR CHRISTMAS HAS FALLEN SO FAR BEHIND THE BOWS AND PRESENTS THAT HOLIDAYS ARE NOTHING BUT ANOTHER REASON TO COMPLAIN ABOUT NOT HAVING ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY BILLS COME JANUARY. WE ALL (INCLUDING MYSELF) NEED TO FOCUS MORE ON WHAT WE H…
