Lately it seems as though time has not made a decision on whether to stand still or speed up. It doesn’t even appear to be going at a snails pace.
Officially I have taken on a new contract, it has been just over a month. Thankfully I have been able to balance my contracts in such a way that I also have space to breathe and have a life of my own. As for what it is that I do, well my full time is as a Compliance Officer for a mortgage company, my contracts are BPS analyst and working with the bands out of CA.
I am also happy to say that my oldest daughter has settled in when it comes to college, for a few weeks she was more or less on a scattered route which was stressing her out because of her nature, very organized, planned, etc… The youngest has been working, okay, officially working for a store that has been a big part of her life. I guess we can say that all the kids have worked there, it’s tradition, let’s see if the grand-babies follow in that path.
My youngest son is currently living/working in Louisiana and loving it. He gets to ride on very large tractors and play in mud, water, swamps all day. I guess the building of structures isn’t bad either. Basically he has told me his days of playing with all those Tonka trucks has become reality. For me, I am just glad that he is not riding bulls any more, not too thrilled about Alligators, but, what can you do? He’s over 18, in fact he’s 21 now.. where has the time gone?
As for the grand babies, aside from the oldest having had that seizure a few months back, he seems to have bounced back with no form of side effects and it is believed by his doctors that it was perhaps a one time incident, we are quite lucky and relieved. As for my grand-daughter, oh, yeah… she is just the cutest little thing, spoiled rotten, smart as a whip and very independent already… takes after both parents, I think more of her momma though. :/
As for the honey and I… it is going great, we are moving forward and yet taking things as they come and at a comfortable pace. We have started looking at houses, not planning to do anything for at least a year, unless something grabs us both comes along, but we would like to find something that we can start out in as our own. In fact, he moved in with me at the beginning of August, which is probably due to me having a pool…. anyway, his oldest daughter is in his house now… so, yes, things are moving right along.
