The big day!!!

Today's my baby's first day of PRE-K!!!! Oh, she's groing up so fast. This morning she was such a big girl getting herself ready (with a running commentary of course!) and telling me how she was going to greet her teachers.
I'm so sad that I won't be able to see her actually get on the bus. I envy SAHMs that. They are able to see their children off to school everyday and are the first to hear what happened that day. Maybe one day I"ll be able to stay home with mine.
Send prayers her way and wish her a WONDERFUL day!!

Things have been INSANE lately...

I got laid off (it really wan't a surprise the way the mortgage industry is going) I've stressed about what I'm going to do... thought about being a medical transcriptionist... ruled it out... then I decided and then I decided that I'm gonna go back to school **GASP**

So I'm now 25 years old... and going back to finish my bachelors.... with 2 kids.... and a husband. It's a bit over whelming....then if that wasn't enough.... we decided to throw in buying our first home.... **DOUBLE GASP**

So my days have been filled with trying to get motivated to work when I know that my last day is less than a month away, taking care of my mochas (which reminds me I have some sweet pictures of them I need to post), looking for a house, looking for a part time job and getting my financial aid together for school.

So the projects have pretty much stopped... although I have plenty of WIP to finish... hopefully I'll have my very own craft room to do it in soon.

I"m exhausted... so goodnight!!

So it's been a while, huh?

Ok so I really really suck!! But in my defense TONS of things have been happening lately. First of all I lost my job... yeah when major companies decide to centralize it pretty much sucks for the little people. So I'm in the process of trying to find a new job... and also trying to see if I can go into business for myself... well we'll see... I've been making bags and trying to stay sane... I'm also happy to report that I am STILL cigarrette free DESPITE the stress. I think that is damn spiffy...

well since work is pretty much dead (did I mention that I have to work for 60 more days...BLAH) I"ll get better.... promise.

Oh YAY!!

Ok so my co-worker just told me about a local forum and mommy group. I'm excited!! I need to get out and meet some people dag-nam-it. So it's called Peninsula Mommies and my membership is "pending." We'll see what happens. Now, I'm off to find out what's going on in the world of blogging.

What is this blog REALLY about?

You know I've been thinking...well not really I just thought... that I have no clue what this blog is about. I mean is it a craft blog? Is it a blog where I just dish about things that interest me? I don't kn0w... I find myself wanting to post about personal things then thinking. "Wait no I can't post that because this is a craft blog and no one REALLY cares about what's going on in your life." But then I really don't care what people want to know about. I try to remind myself that I'm not doing this to fulfill others but to fulfill myself.

That being said....

Today I read a blog about writing and it made me think back to the time when I wanted to be a writer. Just like everything else I ever wanted to "be" it never came about. Now it's something that i would LOVE to be able to do but I think I have lost my voice. By that I mean, I have lost my opinion or my point of view. How do you get THAT back? It's pretty weird. I have the strange feeling like I'm watching myself live life. I'm not really engaged and I don't make any decisions. I just watch things happen. Isn't that a bit strange?! I mean really that's some mental ward stuff, right?

So maybe I need to take the time and actually think about things not just do them. Form opinions not based on what will cause the least bit of friction but what I REALLY believe.

I think that I have become complacent in my mediocrity. I mean let 's face it I have a mediocre job, a mediocre family life and just really a mediocre existence. But what do I expect?! If I'm not willing to engage from opinions, STICK to my opinions what else will I ear have? If I want to go back to school I need to find a way to MAKE it happen. If I want to be more active with my children I need to find activities and DO them. Take them places. Do whatever not just say I'm going to do it and don't. I think that I'm really turning into my parents. And that's the last thing that I would EVER want to do.

It's hard, for me, to be good at life but it seems for some it just comes naturally. They don't have to work at their marriage or being a good friend, mother, wife, sister, daughter. They just are. I wish that I had that ability but now that I realized that I don't what am I gonna do about it?
