New Kitchen

Sunday, October 03, 2010


Fall is definately here. We had a great family day today - we went out first thing and got 2 loads of firewood, then came home, unloaded them - had a fire in the yard and raked leaves. Funny how it's the little things that make the best family memories!

Not too hard to tell that I haven't been too chatty lately. I feel like I am just on the other side of a fairly major stress breakdown. I had no way to anticipate that the transition to a new job in government would be so hard on me. Stress is a strange beast when you don't recognize it!

I am moving forward.. I am alive and well. Just thought I'd at least update that much. :)

AAhh, paid to surf the net

Well I just can't say enough about being paid to invigilate an exam at the college. 3 hours of paid time to surf the net on unsecured wireless networks. This new job is great!

The sun is finally out.. feels so much like spring here which is at least a month ahead of normal for here.

Collin is at his new (yes new again) job and things are good - he has been really happy, I am settling in to my new job - once all this training is over I will be glad. I have never been great at travelling around too much but this has been all a bit overwhelming for me... so I think next week will be the last of it for a little while.

Spring break is coming up - though we don't have any travel plans, it will still be nice to have a break from making lunches. Who knew that could be so exciting!

Things are really looking up

New job, new hair, new outlook on life.

Maybe it was just the shopping spree for some more super professional clothes, maybe it's that I am being spiritual for the first time in years (and this time it's my version of it.. not some watered down or hyped up "supposed to be" that I didn't quite fit, maybe it's that my husband is just so fantastic to me and as a father, maybe it's that my kids are so damn cute and getting so independent (and stylish), maybe it's the love of new friens and the laughter that I haven't had in a long time, maybe it's the new Rosewood's Diary album by Greg Ventin & the band, maybe it's how great and supportive my family is and has always been through my hardships.. I just don't know - OR maybe it's all that and I just finally feel blessed and fit and even ~m~a~y~b~e~ sexy.

I am lovin' the new job, how professional and purposeful that I feel.

*sigh* Life is good.

Here I am world.. the drugs must be making my world seem lovely!!

I am posting a picture of myself from today.. markedly one of the best days that I have had in the last 365.. blissfully spent material shopping and giggling with my mom & sister and family. It's been great. I am also 58lbs down and just all around feeling like a million buckaroonies.

Blessing to everyone.. have a drink, hug a friend!!!!

WAIT - NEW INSTALLMENT... craziness is making me see sexy hairdressers too... here's my new makeover hair.. I love it.. it's a little more funk...

New Year

Well things have been kind rocky lately, new job, lots of sickness, etc, etc. I am just getting out of the hospital today after a 3 night stay - not really going to divulge all the deets but, I am on the mend. My new supervisor is superb in understanding my need for a mit of rest time until I am back on my feet. It's a good job so far.. everyone is great and I know I am going to just love it.

Our Christmas was just fantastic. Collin's family was here, his Mom & Dad, older brother and his 3 kids.. it was SO much fun. I just love Collin's side of the family. Only ones missing were Jeff/Carley & the kids.

I have yet to download any new pictures, maybe later - then I will update you all. Hope you all had a great holiday and your new years are starting out just perfectly!

Love and hugs....
