It's so nice to have a break from the heat.  Seems so funny saying it feels good to be in the 80's! but it sure beats 105 or hotter.  It has looked more like August than June. Grass is brown, fields that aren't irrigated are dying, I even saw a couple maple trees yesterday that at the very top they are turning their fall colors all ready.  We really could use some rain and they aren't forecasting any in the near future.

In 2 more days we find out the sex of my Grandchild.  I am so excited. Truth be told I am hoping for a little girl but will be very happy with a little boy too!  Carmen at one time wanted a little boy first, but now I think she is just wanting a healthy baby. I am kind of nervous being that she had surgery before she knew she was pregnant.  Was on steroids and pain meds, but the doctors seem to think there won't be any problems. So we will see Wednesday at the ultrasound.

Carmen is doing a little better emotionally the last 2 weeks.  I believe its because she is finally standing up for herself and not being a doormat to her ex-boyfriend. She has finally blocked him on face book.  I don't understand the younger generation why they think they need to put every single thing they think and feel on face book and why do they feel they have to remain close friends with their ex boyfriends.  In Carmen's case I do understand she needs to be civil because there is a child involved but come on lets be real, how many of us can say we remained good friends with our ex-boyfriends and or ex-husbands or wives.?

My emotions are also all over the place at times. Learning to take one day at a time and count my blessings as I go.

So much has happened since my last blogging session.  In March my daughter who is 23 called me at 630 in the morning waking me up from a wonderful nights sleep.  She crying Mom its terrible!  Me: What? what is going on.  Pj and I have broke up and I am pregnant!  What a way to wake up!

Since that call, carmen has moved home with us and it has been mostly termoil between her and Pj. So are home life feels like it is on a crasy roller coaster!  I would not have it any other way of her moving home, but so wish she would only have contact with him on issues of the baby.  She does really good emotionaly then he does or says something to upset the whole applecart again.

It breaks my heart to see my baby going through all this.  But I also think it is now time for her to take a stand and tell him thats it and no more contact and mean it.

Happy New Year 2012!

So alot has taken place since my last post.

I am still working out of my home, but I am now loving it! It took me a while to get used to being at home everyday.
I even tried working at Menards for 2wks and hated that.

I am currently working at home on Tuesdays and Thursdays, every other Friday I work at The Muscle Therapy and Acupuncture Center in White Pigeon, Mi. Monday an Wednesday mornings I volunteer at our Elementary school. I am in three different classrooms for a 30min period. Second grade, 4th grade and first grade. I listen to them read, help with sight words and whatever else the teachers need me to do. I love it and the kids are awesome!

This is the first time in a long long time that I feel like my life is in Balance.

So here we are April 22nd, 2011. I am really struggling with working at home!

I miss being with people. The interaction, sharing of problems, laughing at jokes etc. At times it gets very lonely at home.
I find myself watching my husband go off to work and my daughters heading out on their daily it work or out with friends and I catch myself being jealous.

I have decided to send out some resumes to Chiropractic offices and see if I could do massages part time. Until I hear anything I have to pray that God will give me peace with where I am in my life at this time.

Well I have been working at home for almost 4 months.

I do love it, but it has taken some getting used to. Being at home 7 days a week made me a little stir crazy at the start especially with the snow.

I have now started walking every morning between 530 and 630 am with my dog maggi. She is loving it..We started with walking about 8blocks and finding out how bad of shape I really am in.
We have worked our way up to 1 mile now.
I also figured out that I have to have a normal routine everyday. I now have started my spring cleaning in between clients.

Another plus I am starting to get busier, I am now averaging 3 clients a day sometimes 4 which is good being that I only do 5 hrs worth of massages a day.

Well I started a new adventure in January. I gave notice at the clinic in October and I started working out of my home January 3, 2011.

It took some getting used to the first week. But now I am loving it!

Well 2 weeks sure can fly by quickly!

We arrived back home from Alaska around midnight last night!

I have decided if I can ever arrange it I want to move to Alaska! Jerry and I had such an awesome time!
We flew into Anchorage...then very early the next morning we took the train to Seward. That ended up being one of our favorite towns. Its a beautiful town on Resurrection Bay. I found a wonderful restaurant there called Chinook's! We always picked a window seat looking out at the Harbor!
Awesome fresh seafood!
We also went to Telkeetna/ this is the town that the TV show Northern Exposure was based on. It is a very unique little town just like the tv show! We loved it! We stayed at the Talkeetna Lodge, and the view from our room was of Mt. McKinley. So beautiful.
Went to Denali, and Denali National Park saw a lot of wildlife. Moose, grizzlies, Dall Sheep, a wolf, caribou and many many Eagles.
Went to Fairbanks and panned for gold. We did pretty good! Ate in some amazing resturants.
Also visited Whittier. Went on a cruise to see a glacier. Stayed in the Whittier Inn. very nice.

I will try and have pics up soon! Trying to edit them now.
