Changes for the Good!!

Things with my life has been changing a bit. And I must say a bit for the better, sorta. The bad news first. I am no longer providing daycare for my family of 3 that caused me so much trouble. I do in fact miss them because they were so darn lovable. Even more, I miss the paycheck from them. I definitely do not miss the drama they caused. The other kids have said to me that they are glad that they don't come anymore. How sad is that?

But hey, the good news is that I am starting to have a life again. The two older boys that I keep that has the mom with the crazy schedule is now on a set schedule. Let's just hope she doesn't get booted off this one. I now only have them on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30am to 1:00am and then on Saturday from 7:00am to 6:00pm. Whew, thank goodness. I never knew if I was coming or going with her old schedule.

My busiest days unfortunately are Thursday through Sunday but that's all good for me. I still have kids the other days but on Tuesday & Wednesdays I don't have any kids until 11:00am except for the 2 boys from 6:30am until 7:15am when they go to school. That is really nice having that time. I also now have Sunday, Monday and Wednesday evenings off. I am enjoying life right now.

I have not been blogging, visiting, commenting and entering giveaways near as much because I have fallen prey to the Facebook apps FarmVille and Country Life. This is not really such a bad thing because Hubby has fallen victim also and this gives us a lot to talk about instead of me blogging and him watching TV. Our daughter also is a farmer and so in the evening you can find the three of us in the living room with our laptops talking about who is posting mystery eggs and all that good stuff. I have been so addicted to it that I have spent two nights dreaming about the darn farm. I would much rather sleep than dream.

I started reading the Twilight series but decided I would stop after finishing Twilight and watching the movie. Even though they were both good, that's just not my thing I guess. I will watch the rest of the movies, but I am skipping on the other three books.

If you haven't had the chance to read "Permission Slips" by Sherri Shepherd, do. I started reading this book last night and couldn't put it down. I read 145 of the 269 pages and loved every page. Of course I am a fan of her on "The View" and I love her show "Sherri" When I finish up here I am going back to finish reading that book.

Oh crap, I think I just peed my pants. Not really peed but just peed a bit. I am so sick of this cold and crap that I have. Cough, cough, sniffle, sniffle, cough, gag, cough, spit. My head has been pounding off and on for three days and sleeping at night is becoming an issue when I lay down. Unfortunately it's almost February and that is usually when I have Bronchitis and/or Pneumonia. I was hoping to skip that this year.

Well, I here the 2 1/2 month baby girl fussing and I shall go get her before she wakes the other kiddos from their naps.



  1. Its so nice to stop by your blog and find you being so positive about things.. Change has definitely been good.
    I also as you know am a Facebook Farmville, Filler, Farkle Freak!!!
    I am hoping to get started back to posting on my blog.. I am hoping once all of the Family DRAMA is over or put behind us I can wrap my mind around the blog.
    I would love to read that book you are reading if it is yours..

    Talk to you later.. baby crying!!!
    He wants a Pacifier.. I don't have one.. I need a magic wand.. It was here and now it disappeared.. The pacifier not the baby or the magic wand!

  2. Well yeah my dear, I'm glad you may get some rest! You working 24/7 has to be straining my dear.

    I'm sad you lost the kids but glad the drama is gone.
