UPDATE on everything; house, graduation etc.

  1. Hi everyone.
    You all probably want to know how I am doing.

    I am doing great in my new house. It is lonley at times, but I do love it. Everything is going smooth with the bills and everything. its alot easier than I thought it would be. The only problem I am having is not having anyone there to wake me up in the morning to go to work. I never hear my alarm clock, because whenever I fall asleep I am out like a log. I'm a night owl, so I can't sleep at night. I fall asleep when the sun starts rising, and wake up barely in enough time to get to evening shift. I've never been late though. Oh, and I lost 30 pounds. I don't eat nealy as much anymore, and I have to walk everywhere.

    Graduation was not all that it was cracked up to be. I felt very uncomfortable graduating with my class, and they almost forgot to announce my name to get my diploma! I was the last in line, and they almost forgot me! and I didn't really know anyone there. The same thing with the grad party. It was real lame. But I graduated with a 3.6 GPA! I'm very happy for that.

    As most of you know now the kitten that I alledgedly "dumped to fend for itself" found a home. I hear he is doing well. I now Have a kitty of my own, and she is a great pet. Mouse is my little buddy, and is also doing well.

    During these past few months I have been going through some rough roads at work that I wish not to discuss. Most days I would go home and just start bawling, and sometimes at work too. Things are starting to look up with that too. Either things are getting better, or I'm just getting tougher.

    Oh, and lets not forget, I got a new hairdo! Its really short now, like short short. It is dark auburn with bright auburn and blonde highlights. I look like a fiery red head now.

    I'll keep you posted

    Good to hear from you Mandi, I am glad things are working out nicely for you. Now get to nursing school!!!!! LOL

    I started a new weekend job and fill in with my agency during the week, it is going great so far. Hubby had his surgery to remove tumor in his ear and is healing without complications so far. Hubby sold his motorcycle (woot), we had a garage sale and make over $700.00 (who knew junk had a value, LOL). I am looking for a new vehicle for my son, offered a price on a used car and are waiting to hear if the seller will accept it. Not much else new.

    I have watched you "grow up" here before my eyes. I had serious doubts/reservations about you moving out on your own (as you may recall). But, I guess I will be the first to eat a bit of crow and pat you on the back!

    You are heading in absolutely the right direction and I am happy for you and continue to root for you!!!!! Keep it up and keep us updated how you are. We do care!
