Where have I been?

This year is flying by, with going to school and more projects assigned to me than I can handle, things like blogs have gone to the wayside. I hope to pick up again soon.

January and back to normal life!

The Holidays are over and now I'm getting back into the regular routine of working and working on school work.

I didn't get to volunteer in 2008 so I am going to try and get back into that in 2009, but take it slow so I don't burn myself out, like I am good at doing!

Hope your 2009 is going good so far!

Wrapping up 2008

I apologize that I have not kept this up. I normally keep up on what I start! However, my dad's health continued to get worse and he passed away in October. While this was rough on me and my family, it was something he was praying for because he felt so bad.

Then came the Holiday's and I just didn't come to this blog to update.

Will try to be better in 2009!

Another long break from blogging!

Life is still trying to see if I can make lemonade out of lemons. My full time job was very stressful during the month of July. I even had to call off a couple of times for my part time job due to the full time job! Good news is they worked with me.

Then on July 18th, they put my dad in the Hospital. For those of you reading who don't really know me and my family history, my dad has had 4 open heart surgeries with several other surgeries over the last 30 years. He was sick in Feb and we thought we might lose him and he bounced back. I went to visit in May and he seemed a little bettter...but on July 18th they sent him to the hospital. They released him the Wednesday after...but he wasn't doing well so I left on Saturday July 26th to go back to spend some time with him.

Thank God I have a job that allows me to work remotely so I was able to work when he rested and didn't get behind at work...although family comes before work!

I leave on vacation with my daughter, son-in-law and family friend in 12 days....I am so looking forward to a vacation...although we are going to California...where there are fires and earthquakes! I think there is the makings of a country song with how my life is going lately!

Been busy.....

Haven't been here lately, I'm working two jobs and going to school, so free time isn't something I have much of lately!

In almost a month, we'll go on our vacation to California, I am so ready for it!

What have you done for vacation this year?

When life gives you lemons.....

make lemonade. I've heard that statement many times over my lifetime but this week gave me and my daughter the opportunity to do that.

This was a rough week. We found that due to a financial surprise, we had to cancel our trip to Alaska. We were both so disappointed and I was very cranky!

But now we have worked it out that we are still going to go on a vacation with her husband, and 3 friends. We are going to California. I have been but as a teen-ager so its been a long time! =)

We are now planning to go to Alaska for the cruise in May 0f 2009. May is really a better time to go to Alaska than in August from what we have been told.

So when life through us lemons this week, we made lemonade and now we get two trips one this August and one next May!
