Good Morning everyone. I am sorry that I have not been writing lately, but things has been so busy for me. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Alot has happened since I was last here. First of all, I would like to say that I got promoted on my job to one of the assistant managers at work. All of this took place around the first of December. Work was something through Christmas...we was so busy that I didn't have time to do anything at all. I was lucky to get one day off of work to spend with my family. Well, on Christmas Day we went to my step-daughters and her family's house. Well on the way there, we was to stop and meet my oldest step-son, because they just left to head back to Hattiesburg, MS. Well, we met, but he had more people with him too...his natural mother's dad and brother. Well, when we got ready to go, My step-son had already left, and we was fixing to and the my step-son's grandfather's truck wouldn't start.....so we stayed there about two hours trying to get his truck, going....well, we ended up having to take them to my step-daughter's house.....come to find out my step-kids biological mother lives right across the street from my step-daughter. Well, my Christmas was ruined by that. My step-daughter husband already told the mother that the day was for fathers, so she needed to get back to her own house. She thought she was going to come over there and ruin our Christmas...which she did mine, because I was so ready to come back home. Thank God I had to work the next day....or we would have had to stay the night. I do not feel comfortable for us being around my husband's ex-girlfriend/the mother of his three oldest kids. We finally left and I am not sure if I want to go back or to visit, as long as the mother is involved.
Day after Christmas, we had to go to Laurel, to take my youngest step-son back. Well, that morning I got up feeling sick....I had to work that day from 12-closing. On our way back from Laurel, that I got so sick, that I had to call in and tell them that I was sick. I came home and stayed in bed rest of the day and night. My kids had that virus the first week they got out of school for the holidays and then my husband got it....and I had the double dose of it. Not fun at all.
Our New Years Eve went well. Every year we bring in the New Year at our church. We have a bomb fire, roasting hotdogs, marshmallows, grilled hamburgers and sausage. Some good music, hayrides and alot of other stuff. It is fun. There was not as many people at this one like it was when we was bringing in 2008. Oh well, 2009 is here and so far it is going great for us. I just hope it is alot better than what 2008 was.
Well, I am going to have to close here. I am off today, and I am suppose to be going with a friend today to the mall and other places.....a girl's day out while kids are in school. I am going to try to catch up on some journal entries tonight. I have missed reading all of your journals. Since things has calmed down, I am hoping to be here more now and posting a lot more.
Sorry for my absence!
