Life is Good

All is well in Lisa Land. I am grateful for so many things in my life today. I have a good job that provides for me and the girls. Things are turning around in the relationship sector and I am just generally and overall happy with myself and with my life. Like I said, life is good!

Time flies when you're having fun

So, I last posted in APRIL...are you serious? And I made a promise that I was going to keep up with the writing for the simple fact that it's sooo therapeutic. Guess times flies when you're having fun, eh?

Seems like the days and nights just come so quickly these days, the next thing you know it's been a month, then two, then three and so on. This job of mine is time consuming, but I am starting to find my groove. We continue to grow, expand and continue to hire and in today's economy, that's a very good thing. I am so fortunate to even have a job right now that I find it hard to really complain about the long hours and the long drive I have each day.

The girls began school in August and things are smoothing out quite nicely with them. They are adjusting well to my new hours and I hardly ever hear any belly aching from them these days. We got a system going in the mornings and I am so proud of them for getting up each morning and being responsible for themselves and getting the job done that needs to be done each morning. I try to praise them often and give them credit where credit is due. :)

My personal life is kinda in upheaval right now. Not ready to share, but suffice it to say that eventually we all come down off that proverbial love cloud at some point. I am saddened and truly disappointed that things aren't going in a different direction that I had so hoped for in this relationship. I am just going to give it all up to God, because He knows what's best for me anyway and no amount of worrying that I do, is going to change the outcome any.....for whatever that ends up being. I am just going to continue to do what I do and keep putting one foot in front of the other. It'll all work out however it's meant to work out. Staying positive is the best thing I can do for me and my kids right now.

I'm ready for Fall and ready for sweater weather, bonfires and pumpkin patches...even though I hate to see summer go. It's just the winter I dread that's coming after Fall. I've said before on this blog, I am not a fan of winter in any way, shape or form, ha! So for now, I will enjoy the changing of this season, the changing of the leaves from green to golden yellows, oranges and reds and relax and know that right here, right now, I am exactly where I am supposed to be.

Thinking it's time to move on...

Yeah I know, haven't posted in EON'S!! I keep thinking I will have the time to update and people keep asking me, why I am not writing anymore??? Well mostly it's a time factor and that so much has happened since my last post that I really don't even know where to begin.

For starters, I started a new job the end of January. I am driving 45 min one way to work and enjoying the hustle bustle of the corporate world. Feel like I am using my brain more than anyone person ever needs to use it. Seems like some days I can hear the nerve endings sizzling inside my head on the drive home. I don't think I am going to have to worry about Alzheimer's any time soon the way this new place makes me use my brain, lol....

The girls are adjusting to mom being gone longer hours with protest. They miss me at their beck and call is more like it. They are not digging my new found independence any or that they are now sharing me with the love of my life, Phil. Seems there are never enough hours in one day to meet everyone's needs. Heavy sigh...

Took the girls fishing last night much to MY protest. I may be a lot of things...but one thing I am not is a fisher woman. I don't like. I don't enjoy it. I don't even eat fish (well tuna maybe)...why would I want to catch one?? But as Phil put it....I went for moral support and to take pics of my cute little girls fishing and having fun. Ok, time I think I will opt out for a pedicure instead or fake illness or something. Fishing is for the birds.

TGIF!! I am looking forward to the coming weekend and sharing good times with all five of the girls this week-end. I wonder if Phil and I will ever get to retire with 5 girls to get through college and then married off. Another heavy's hoping you have a wonderful weekend enjoying and doing the things you love most!

Welcoming the new year...

How glad I am to see 2010 roll into my life. I started to post at Christmas time and then things got really hectic and really busy in my life and I just never got around to doing so. I figure I can start clean in 2010 and attempt to keep this blog updated a little more. It's my ONLY New Year's Resolution in fact. I don't make resolutions because I always, always break there you have it.

Just feeling extremely grateful for all the blessings in my life these days. Doors keep opening for me and things just keep getting better all the time. I feel richly blessed by friends and family and I know that no matter how rough life can seem, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel for me. I am currently ending one chapter in my life and beginning a new one. This chapter is exciting and full of hope and promise. I can wait to see how it ends.

Here's hoping that 2010 will bless you all in ways you never thought possible. Thanks for being in my life and for being my inspiration this past year! Couldn't have done it all without all of you. <3
