Never second guess yourself

Posted by Hope at 7:01 PM 0 comments

So, I went to the library today to check out some books and pick up a
book that I had on hold. I decided, being that I am 3 classes from my
Associate Degree, I should figure out what I want to be when I grow up
:) so I picked up a couple of career books. Well, as I am reading the
one ....
It showed
Leisure Activities:
Working with a personal computer
Writing, scorekeeping, or practicing electronics as a hobby.
browsing the internet
doing puzzles and playing games of strategy

Ability to cope with constant change
Ability to work under pressure
ability to work with others
abstract reasoning

Most of the things I read, i was thinking ... Hey, that is ME ! Well,
guess what the college major was ???
I changed from that degree to business awhile back ... LOL maybe I am
meant to have a career in Computers :)

Hoppy Easter !!!

I am sitting here wait till the coast is clear to hide eggs, the kids are in bed, but not sure they are asleep yet ! We colored eggs tonight and the kids had a blast ! Me and the kids watched Little House on the Prarie ... it is such a good movie !
I am going to fall asleep as I sit here if I don't get to hide the eggs soon, the kids were up being SOO loud last night and I didn't get to sleep until late :(

I am pretty excited about the TV schedule tomorrow night, finally a new episode of Desperate Housewives !!!

Happy Easter to all, i am off to "lay some eggs"

It's Raining Eggs !

I got up this morning ,thinking, hey I am going to get out of taking the kids (my 3 + their 2 friends) to the Annual Easter Egg Hunt because it was soooo windy (I checked this morning and we had gusts at 45 mph ! and it was just plain YUK outside ! Well, i call my friend who makes me feel guilty (thanks Dorothy!), so I decided to take the kids. We got there and it started RAINING !(not hard, just sprinkling a bit). So, the kids and I go our seperate directions, to the appropriate age groups... 5...4...3...2...1... GO GO GO ! 10 seconds and it was over ! The hunt statred at 10:00am SHARP, I was in my van at 10:25 .. and that was after chatting with some friends for awhile.. and walking a mile to where I parked ! It was soo miserable and cold and wet ! Hayley had the best time, the boys thought it was a little boring .. LOL The kids got alot of candy (of course!).
I managed to get rid of the 2 kids' friends, so it is just me and my kids and I am sitting in the recliner with the heater on and a blanket over me cause it is COLD. The boys are curled up and playing games, so I think it is going to be a lazy day except for dying eggs and going to get a ham for dinner tomorrow.

Not all kids are alike !
Here it is 9pm on Friday night. Kaleb has one of his friends over, not one of the normal sleepover guests, and he is soo different frrom most of my son's friends. I had to laugh when Kaleb was bugging him to go outside and play and he just wanted to sit and play video games. I also realized that when kids don't have things like computers, video games, tv in their rooms, ect. they seem to want to do that the whole time. This is really an adjustment for him to have such a different kind of friend.

Well, it seems when she wrote the assignment she was using the 1st Edition of our book ....First of all, I didn't have any problems with the assignment .... WELL...... I HAVE THE WRONG BOOK !!! Yikes !!! I had to order the correct one and it won't be shipped until Monday :( I sure hope someone in my class can scan the pages for me !!! I should get my book on Tuesday, thank goodness !
So it is Friday and I should be stress free, but now I am stressing about this darn book ... and I am STILL sick! Tomorrow is the District PineWood Derby for Scouts and I am supposed to be there.... I hope I am feeling better tomorrow !!!

Tonight was the Blue and Gold for our cub scouts pack. Happy 75th Birthday Cub Scouts ! The meeting went ok, I felt it could have been better but it always ends up being the same people volunteering and they get burnt out ! Now that the 2 big events are over I can work on taking over as Committee Chairperson for the pack.

Well, Kaleb is at the ER, he had a seziure. It has been about 5 years since he has had one. So, I am sitting here waiting to hear what the Dr says.

Well, today has been filled with Ups and downs ! The UPS are that I finally got started on my research paper that is due on Sunday !!! And ... Rik made board for Cheif !!! The Downs are, I heard from my birth mom today and my step dad was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphona. I wonder sometimes how much one can handle, my birth mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000 and was cancer free until a few months ago when she found out she had cancer in the other breast as well as cancer in her bones. Now her husband has cancer and will be going thru chemo and radiation.

My mind is just spinning with all this information !
