Another Year Has Passed Me By!!!!

Hi All. I have been missing again. I am sorry I have been so dang busy with life. I miss all my friends I have made on here.  I still don't think as many people blog anymore as when i first started.  But I have graduated from college. Working on my Bachelors Degree. i was going for Cyber Security but decided to change my Majors by going into Project Management instead.  I was suppose to have started classes Monday but two  people dropped out of the classes and now we have to either wait a week to see if they can replace those two people or then we have to wait a quarter to see if we can get two new people in next quarter. Life has taken a toll on us.

You all know we were losing our old house. Well I went to get our shovels and one small box of books I had left in the basement. but one small problem with that. they finally locked us out. they had new locks and the door had one of those key code things on it.  Oh well. I am just happy to be done with it.  I don't even miss it. So much more work there than in the new home.  I am enjoying my new home. I have a fire place in my living room that we use quite frequently.

the girls are growing like weeds. I haven't taken any updated photos in a while. I need to do that for you all. I am still trying to sell my crocheting on Zibbet.  I haven't made a sale yet this year. Wish I could. I need the money right now.  Always.. We have hit a hard spot. Jeff is no longer at Pomp's Tire and hasn't been since September. He got hired by a temp agency in what we thought was his field of study but found out about three weeks ago that they didn't like what he was doing. Well in the first place he wasn't being trained in the job that they offered him.  Plus it wasn't in his field of study.  But he has had a job offer with another company that he is suppose to start with this week..

X-mas is going to light this year if the girls even get one.  Not sure what we are going to do about it. Jeff got a new job and not sure when he starts.  He got let go from his last new job. He thought he was doing so well but they didnt train him to do the job so they let him go saying he wasnt doing the quality work.  WELL DUHH!!  Anyway things are ok here..  OK I need to get going. i promise updated photo's soon.. Will post more soon. Nik.

Lots and Lots of stuff going on here....

Hi all I have been telling you all I have lots of stuff going on. Well I do.  I graduated as I told you in my last post. I almost walked out of my Bachelors Degree because I just couldn't focus on school and my job. Well Sunday at 10:52 AM I texted Jeff and asked him how mad he would be at me I walked off the job. Well he wasn't happy but he said if it made me happier I could do as I wanted to. So I clocked out and came home. I have been truly happy for the last few days. i have been smiling and spending time with my babies that I just couldn't do while working 13 hour days. and I decided to stay in school. I also might have a job in the field next week. Just waiting to see what happens with the Temp agency i am working with. 

We got our trailer house we have been waiting on. Our house for closed and they sold it back to the bank and we have to move. They wouldn't work with us to save the damned thing but we started looking for a trailer house about two months ago when Jeff go this new job in his field of study. He went into Electronics and then when he graduates in December here he wants to go back for a year and a half again too and go for the programming degree they have. it wont be a bachelors degree but he will have two associate degrees. that is just as good as having a bachelors degree i have been told.

I have arthritis in my pointer finger and my middle finger on my right hand. I can barely move the middle one some days. Its hard to write and crochet and do other things.  We are still home schooling the girls. They still love every minute of it. They are growing up to quickly.  I have more photo's for you here in this post that I took while the girls were gone in September. 

I am still a diabetic but keeping my blood sugars under control and I have lost 25 pounds since last December when i found out i was a Diabetic.  I am still trying to lose more weight as of now. I have been active around the house trying to get things packed up. I still have the livingroom today for the most part of what needs being packed. Or what i can pack.

So alot going on right now and I need to get my photos in here and get to my chores before leaving for school tonight. I have to bring Jeff some dinner at the school because he wont have time to come home and eat and then leave again....

thes next three photos are just parts of the trails we walked on. a beautiful day to be our and about.

this one i took my camera and put the lens through the fence to get this one nice and clear.

these last four photos are just awesome.. this is the closest they have ever been to me while taking photos.

I am finally a college GRADUATE!!!!!!

Hi guys and gals. I have been missing in action again for a while and just havent gotten to posting anything. I have lots of pix to share and my life with you. But afraid to share in case potential jobs find me on the internet.  Its scary from what we have been told. We have been told that some jobs require us to open up our Face Book accounts for them to see what we post and such. I will not be opening my FB account for anyone anytime soon. Even if it means I don't get the job. but here are some photo's of graduation.

the room the school rented for graduation. this was before the ceremony.

me in my cap and gown waiting for the photographer to take the group photo.

our practice run before the actual ceremony.

me with my program chair.  she is really sweet.

right as the actual ceremony started.  the girl you see right there by the edge of the front of the pix. she had just had her baby two days before hand. i call that tough and wanting to get her degree.

the last stage of graduation is getting our covers to our diplomas which will be here shortly in the next week or so.

Wow its been a While

HI all. Its been a while again. I have been busy with work and school. I have three weeks left of my Associates Degree. Can you believe that?? I am so excited and nervous at the same time.I am having a hard time with finding a job in my field of study though.  I keep looking and I keep hoping really. Jeff has had interviews but with him not graduating till December of 2013 he cant get into many of his positions he has applied for. They require travel and he has to be here for school.  But we are all excited. I promise to post pictures when I am done.I am going back for my Bachelors Degree. Classes start one week before my Associates Degree Graduation.. 

The girls are doing great. They are going to go spend three weeks with grandma in September and come home on my graduation party.  We are doing it at Bay Beach. Our local Amusement Park. Its the last weekend of the year they are open. I wish I could get my videos uploaded to my blog but for some reason they wont let me.  I have some awesome ones to show you guys and also I will have one to show you in about two weeks. 

I am sorry I am bouncy with my posts like usual. they are both enjoying there horse back riding lessons. Kora didn't do so well this last time because she wouldnt kick the horse to get him to listen to her. but other wise they are enjoying themselves. They are learning how smart horses are really. they were asking this one horse questions and he was actually answering them with yes and no answers. It was funny when they told me this last night before I fell asleep on them finally. I have been wore out from my job. 

I have some photos from all over the last few months. I wont post them all in one sitting and I hope not to take three months to make another post. I just havent had the time or energy to do much lately about any of it. But I will  post some here in a minute. We had a party at our house here last weekend. it was fun. A friend of ours and his wife own a Karaoke Business and they brought the system into town to our house. We had lassagna for those that came early and hamburgers and hotdogs for those that showed up later.  We had a few beers and soda and water. They even got me to sing a couple of songs. I dont think I will be doing that again but it was fun while it lasted. 

Enjoy the photos and I will keep you all posted on whats going on here in the next few months. I am graduating September 26th and my graduation party is September 28th.  Its been a long road but I am willing to make it even though it might kill me in the long road. I want this so badly. Take care my friends.
snowie isnt to fond of dogs but this friends female boston terrier likes her.

me and the girls. I have lost 30 pounds since posting pix of me.

Lots of Stuff going on the last few weeks.....

Lots have been happening the last few weeks. We have been busy. Last weekend was my first weekend in four weeks I have had off.  The whole WEEKEND!!! WOW!! Yes I enjoyed every minute of it. I spent time with the girls on Friday and then Saturday we went to our local  Amusement park that opened for the season on Weekends till May 31st. Then they are open all the time. We went Mini Golfing before we came home on Saturday. Kora beat us all.  It was a blast. I miss having family time like that and yes there are many pictures to come. Just trying to figure out which ones to  post. Brianna went up on the Ferris Wheel all by her self.  She went up with daddy the first time but then she wanted to do it again and she wanted to try by herself. So we said here are your tickets since the ride takes two tickets and let her go.  My babies are growing up way to fast.

Then on Sunday we got up and I  made breakfast and we went for a medium sized hike and saw alot of turtles.  boy were they out sunning themselves. We went to Barkhausen. I will have to look the link up for you there if you are interested in looking.  We are looking at having my graduation party out there. on September 28th.

I am almost done with school. I have one more quarter after this one. I am nervous. The school is also adding a mandatory class that we all have to take. its an advanced course to one of the first classes we took. We are trying to petition that we dont have to take it but it looks like we are going to have to take it anyway. but anyway i am fustrated with school in a way. one of my classes is online this quarter and the teacher isnt being very helpful. he keeps telling us to call the support hotline.  Then he has the audacity to tell us that we can write a 1200-1500 word document from the videos on the lab that we have to do but we cant access the labs??!! I don't get it.that is all that is getting to me this quarter. I have a few teachers that are vouching for me. I am working on an internship.  Just hoping they call back soon or Monday they are going to get another call from me.

I graduate Thursday, September 26, at about 7 PM. Anyone interested in coming just let me know. I know some of you live far away and its impossible but the graduation is September 26 but my party is Saturday September 28th.  Havent decided what exactly we are doing with it. I have a friend working on some cakes for me.  i wish i could have her do more sophisticated cakes but all she knows how to do is round cakes. I have found some shaped cake pans I would love to use but she doesnt know how to do them.  and I am not a cake decorator.

Jeff is working on something for himself too. he went on a field trip with his electronics class this last Tuesday and found a possible out of Pomp's Tire.  I will tell you all about it if something comes to light on the subject. the girls are both taking riding lessons now.  I do not have pix of there last lesson because my hubby for got my my camera at home.

Also talked to my doctor last Friday and she said if i can lose another 20-30 pounds and keep my blood sugars at about 100-130 we can take me off my meds in November when I have go back and see her. If for some reason they wont keep stable by then she might have to put me on another med. So I am trying my best on dieting and keeping away from anything I shouldnt be taking in like alot of soda, candy, and such.

Ok off to do some photo's for here and then I am going to go spend sometime with my family. Miss you guys terribly. N..
kora is old enough and tall enough to drive with brianna now.
