So it’s been months since I blogged! There have been so many changes in my life since then. I read over some of the last few posts and it’s crazy the things that have changed since them. Holy Cow!
Lets see, I have been working non stop at my job, and then days I’m not there I’m working at the spa store, and then at home as well. I have been doing hair at home in my salon alot as well on the Sundays and days I have taken off from both of the shops so that I can get alittle downtime. We painted our house both inside and out, well out is about 3/4 done and then the weather got to nasty to continue so it has to wait till it warms up again, we put in new vinyl windows on almost the whole upper floor. What a job that was, breaking out all the old single pain glass and casings and then installing new windows, but it looks fantastic and I love it. Thanks to the hubby whom is a wiz at stuff like that we got it all done in only 3 days! WootWoot! Then the painting really took shape. We cut out old trees and got our pool set up done and it looks fab! We took some of the old tree trunks that were rotted and used them as huge planters, have pics I guess I need to load and show off as they were great! Not so right now all covered in snow still and not very pretty with no florals in them yet, I cant wait for spring and summer again.
The kids are doing ok, Nick is working off some of his time so he wont have to spend any days in the clink, kids are making me crazy but it’s ok, he is still working at our shop a few days a week and doing ok there, Megz is still in limbo wit the whole marriage thing, I think they are trying to work it out but I guess I don’t care one way or the other in that family, I can’t stand her hubby he is so lazy it about drives me battshit crazy but I don’t have to live with the ass so I guess it’s on her not me. I just love the grankids and Megz the rest of that family can bite me! Brandy is due to have another kid in about 6 months and she is excited about it and they are looking to buy another house, her first marriage went south and she took it all in stides and has rebuild a life for her and Tay and its all working for her without the xhubby so it’s all good, the new guy is great but they aren’t married and not sure when or if they will be but it’s just not my issue so I don’t push one way or the other. They will figure it out or they won’t but for now it’s all about the baby and so far we are told they think it’s a boy. So Tay will have a little brother. Yeah!
We got a new puppy about 6 months ago, as the hubby and I wanted a one for him. He has missed his aussie/bcollie mix that we had since he had to be put down years ago so I did alot of searching and found one that picked us. He is a black and white, not the blue merle that we were wanting originally, not that they didn’t have a couple but it wasn’t about the color it was about the dog that picked us. And this one definately picked us. He is all that and a bag of chips, he is overly smart, friendly, cute, funny, crazy and just so us. EXCEPT we wanted a dog that would travel with us to the coast on our trips and be a shop dog with Hubby and I and he hates the car. He foams at the mouth, he drools to beat the band and he barfs if he rides to long! ugh! All in my new TRUCK! UGH! I have to do some serious training and use so real skill to get that under control or he is never going to be able to make it to the coast with us. HE can’t make it 30 miles without being sick in the truck so it’s got to be overcome. LOL We will see.
I finally told my full time job that I was going to quit and gave them till April for that to happen and they were really nice about it. I told them the end of November what my plan was and that I am going to work for hubby and they really were good about it. I had thought that it would not go to well and they would be pissed but they didn’t and actually it’s taken alot off my shoulders and helps me be a bit more relaxed while I’m there. I was so stressed it wasn’t even funny, I hated going to work. Now things are a bit better, they know and I know there is an end date and it’s all good. I’m hoping for sooner than later but I owe them to stay till April and then I’m done. One job is more that enough in this stage of my life. I want to relax a bit. Enjoy some of my life again. Haven’t seen friends in almost a year now and I miss it. No time for fun when you work all the friggin time.
So om gosh there is so much going on in life it’s crazy! I am hoping to get out to the coast again soon, I need a break from all of this, not sure it’s going to happen but maybe closer to the end of the year, but I need to be on a beach and watch the ocean waves for a bit to “center” me.
Well hope all is well with all
