Chatty catch up!
Well now, it's been a while since I've come in and had just a good ol catch up chat.
I felt that it was overdue and so here I am, coffee in hand, and ready to dust the cobwebs off this little blog so that I can update you all.
Life as always, and as I'm sure many of you know, is just so busy around the holidays and leading into the new year. We still have the Christmas decorations outside and if you know anything about me, you have to know that it is making my eye twitch. I need them taken down and put away but my husband hasn't had a chance because he's been so busy with work.
He is now on break from college until his new Semester begins in late February, I think right at the end actually.
He was going to Boise State but it just wasn't working for him. The fees, the 45 minute drives back and forth with the gas prices, the book prices and the schedule and class work itself was just overwhelming with work and everything else. I am so extremely proud of him for even going to college right now. As he resumes classes online this new Semester, he will be continuing to work towards his Masters Degree :)
The kids are doing great. Jasmine is growing into such a gorgeous young lady, is only 4 months away from turning 16 and is about to go for her Driver's permit. Time is flying and I find myself struggling to hold on to my babies but knowing that it's a futile effort.
Nicholas is also 4 months from turning 12 years old. The baby of the house will no longer be the baby and that is something that I'm finding hard to deal with it. Sometimes I sit and think that I wish I had had a third baby, but then I realize that with all my pregnancy struggles I don't think that would have been a good idea. I'm blessed and overjoyed at the two children I have and just need to be thankful for that.
As for me, well, I am just plodding along, taking care of the family and the laundry and housework and all that other fun stuff.
I am so also trying to get back into my normal routine, normal blogging schedule and just plain normal life which is pretty hard when you come out of the holiday season, isn't it?
I want to apologize for not having visited anyone, commented or even had the chance to read any blog posts, I desperately want to get back into that habit too, but it's something else on my long list of must do's coming up.
So how have things been with you all, any fun, interesting things going on in your lives?
I know I thanked you all already for the participating in the Blogmas 2014, but I wanted to do it again it was so much fun and I'm looking forward to another Blogmas at the end of the year. Sure hope you all will jump right on in again :)
Right, so it's now 9:30am and I need to get up, get out of these pj's, finish this cup of coffee and get started with my day. The usual is going on, homeschooling, laundry, housework and vacuuming and so forth and so on.
Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday, and I'll see you all back here tomorrow :)
