A big change

Most of you know that I have moved out of my apartment. I am not sure what I will be doing or where I will be working in the fall. So in the mean time the decision was made to not renew my lease until I know where I will be settling down at. That leads to temporarily moving back home with my family.

Now to me, I am greatful for this and to live rent free. Yeah, I never thought that I would be back home, but so be it. What I am struggling with is telling people this and assuming what they will think of my situation. I shouldn't be bothered with what other people think or say but to some degree I do.

My friend

I don't know about you, but I do a lot of thinking in the car. It is amazing to me how I can be thinking about something and then 2 minutes later I have gone on mulitple tangents and wondered, how did I ever get here in my thinking.

Today was one of those days. I heard a song that reminded me of a friend. A friend that I enjoyed spending time with. A friend that I liked going to get some cocktails with. A friend who I felt safe around. A friend that let me be me. A friend that was incredibly creative. A friend who was intelligent and would teach me things. A friend who I would discuss music with. A friend who would listen to me. A friend who would challenge me.

It made me so sad to think of my friend who I don't talk to or see anymore. I miss my friend.

Oh crap!

So this evening I was watching 2 boys. I have watched them for over a year now. One is potty trained and the other is not. After dinner, the youngest child decided to "do his duty". When I went to change him, I could not find any wipes. I searched the entire house, the diaper bag was missing too. What does a girl do?

After I put the boys to bed, all was well in the nice quiet house, until about 30 minutes later when the little one was crying. I went to check on him to find out...he pooped again.....and there are still no wipes.

What is one suppose to do when this happens?

So true!

I read a quote from Chuck Swindoll that is helping me keep in check my attitude, responses....

"Life is 10% what happens and 90% how I react."

Waking up

Back from Arizona. Wow, I loved going on vacation and checking out on life. Don't think that is always healthy, but with everything going on in my life, I say that is ok! Now back to reality.

What I am realzing about myself, is that I enjoy mornings. I like getting all of my "chores" done in the morning so that I have the rest of day free. In a way it seems freeing to me. Like, working out, I just want to get it done and over with so that I don't have to think about it again until the next day. So if I had to pick the perfect time to wake up, it would be 6 a.m., but that doesn't happen...Then there are others I know who are the complete opposite, they rather sleep the morning away. If I did this, I feel like I wasted my day and when I wake up that late then my day is half over. I love learning about people and how each of us work.

Very random thoughts by Gina.....
