My Crazy Life

Well it is not that crazy just not always fun. Oh well that things happen and it could be worse. Thursday I took my car to have it looked at at the shop I used to work at. I will be working there again soon but just part time. Anyway my brakes were acting weird I didn't have an appointment so I knew I would have to wait. I was there for several hours and had to go back the next day but the parts were under warranty! So even thought I lost all that time I got the work done for free so I guess it was worth it. If I had waited a month the parts would not be past warranty.

On another note I am not going to school next semester. My husband and I have been attending counseling to work on communication and he actually started talking about me going to school. He is not against it but he wants me to see if I can start a career in writing before I get another degree. He wants me to do more research before I spend the money on college at 8000+ dollars a year. If I do go back to school I need a better plan. This is not something he talked to me about before but I am glad he has now. He was right that I didn't do enough research and see if there is something I can do having my Bachelors degree. The counselor gave me some ideas on who to call and ask if they only hire people with English degrees. So for now I am going to finish up this semester and go to the library and get some books on writing and work at home on my writing skills.

I am also going to try to sell at least enough pure romance products to get my money back. I don't want to spend anymore money until I get at least break even. I really wanted my website to work but it is not happening I am very disappointed. The products are not really for everyone I am not sure I chose the best product to sell. I love the stuff but not everyone is comfortable with it. I have a party for December 5th so maybe that will help me book a few more parties. I am planning an open house for January.

Marriage counseling is going well, even thought I have read and read about the differences in men and women it is still hard to understand. I can say something and he hears something so different from what I meant and it goes the other way too. I think it is the first time he has been able to understand that. Now we just have to learn to have conversations where we are asking each other extra questions to make sure we really understand each other.

I did get a lot of work done this week but I still need to get back to working out. I am just going to try to stay up and moving around more and try to walk the dog for right now. I only have three weeks of school left and a few things due during exam week. I want to have everything done before exam week so I don't have to go back unless it is to pick up my portfolios. I just want to work hard the next two weeks to get this stuff done. I have a paper, a take home exam. a final project, and two portfolios to turn in in the last three weeks.

After that I want to kick some but working out until I go back to work. Right now I am working on eating better and less again. No snacking unless it is a very healthy snack. I am going to have to spend a lot of time saying no at holiday parties because I really do feel better when I don't eat a lot of junk food.

So life is just crazy for me these days but not bad things are looking up.

  1. I wish you the best.

    Check out Stephen King’s book "on writing" it is pure gold. It has helped a ton, I am not a Stephen king fan. But this book “on writing” is worth it. I found it on audio book at my library... it is worth listening to. The first part is about his life and how he became a writer but it fun listening to just the same.

    On a side note I plan on buying a few gifts from you when I get my bonus from work.

    Keep your head up and chin down, hopefully it all will get better...

    My marriage turned a corner for the better, when my wife became my best friend. She became the person I confided in and wanted to spend time with. Before she was just my wife and mother of my children, but you must grow closer than that if you’re really going to make it and be happy while doing so…
    This can only occur if your husband is willing to not go hang out with the fellows, and get to know his wife better... if he does I know he'll see the light and treat you the way he should.
