    2017 into 2018; Goals

    I’ve always been someone that said when I’d do something, I did it. Ya know, the kind of person you could depend on; whether it was doing something for myself or others. Over the years, I’ve sort of lost myself. I’m hoping to find her before the year is out so I can start anew for the new year. Some things I want to get back into doing and some things that need to be done… PRIORITY: Church. I need church. Whether it’s going to a Wednesday service or Sunday service. I’m not an overly religious person but without God as front and center in my life, life for me will…

    Vacation

      The hubster and I will be going on vacation soon and I cannot wait to travel with him. It’s been a bumpy road for us as we haven’t been on the same page in a long time. I’ve been holding onto a lot of anger and hurt and not only has it been detrimental to our marriage but my health (in all areas) as well. I will speak (write) on this is another blog post. This post is about our vacation… We are booked on a cruise (his 2nd and my 3rd cruise) and we’ll be travelling to Cozumel and Yucatan (Progresso).  Unlike our last cruise, I booked excursions for…

Later that evening we headed out for dinner…

    Re-focusing…

    This is the first time in a VERY long time where Ive had the freedom that I do. I feel a bit of guilt but it’s something that I need to let go of because I know that I deserve this break. Last year was trying – emotionally, mentally and physically. Not only did I care for my 6 (step)children-  up until June. I also had my husband, niece, mother, foster son and nephew to look after. My (step)children went to live with their mom after school was over but we do get them every other weekend My foster son was taken from us because we had to put our feet…

    Our Anniversary…

    The hubster and I will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary next month and I do plan on us getting far away from home for awhile. When we got married, we didn’t have a rehearsal or anything. We played it by ear the day we got married and I will blog about that later cause yeah, it is hi-la-ri-ous! The hubster sang as I made my way to becoming his wife It looks as though some videos that contain certain songs wont play via WordPress, so you’ll have to view video via Youtube [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toX8kklsK6g&w=420&h=315] Last year was extremely rough for me – losing our foster son, my mothers death as…
