Time, as it passes.

I cannot believe that today is the last day of November. This year, although in ways has moved as quickly as previous years, hasn't always felt like it was moving along at all. It's definitely been a year filled with changes! I faced things that most people would rather go their entire lives not facing. I became a divorce statistic. I realized that I was "that woman", you know, the one that the husband realizes he no longer wants. I was blind sided in more ways than one. Sure, maybe, just maybe, there wasn't physical adultery committed, but we should all know that it doesn't have to be physical to be adultery. If it's there in your heart, you've already committed it whether you've done the deed or not. I was betrayed. I was abandoned. Left without a home, but thank God for my family. I was angry, part of me still is. I will never go back on my belief that if someone can give you up and/or "fall out of love" with you then the harsh reality of the truth is that there was never any love felt to begin with. They mistook what they were feeling for you as love regardless of if you actually loved them or not.

Job hunting news

Over the past few weeks I've managed to get a few interviews. [sarcasm] I've only been looking for a job for month now! [/sarcasm] Yesterday I interviewed at an amazing place and I just so happened to score a second interview! I will be leaving here in about ten minutes for it, so wish me luck!!

Thanksgiving 2010

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar,
and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. 
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. 
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, 
for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.’

This was not only my first Thanksgiving as a newly wed to my wonderful husband Chris, but also my first official holiday with his family. (( This was also my very first Thanksgiving away from the ex and his family, being with them had become a tradition over the past ten years. )) A first of many firsts over the next year. A year that I'm looking forward to and so happy to be experiencing!

'Tis the Season

My ex husband hasn't been able to locate my bag of Christmas ornaments, so while I have a tree to put up, I'm without decorations to put on it! I've had the wonderful idea of doing an ornament exchange! The idea is for you, my friends, to pick an ornament out that represents you, then send it my way and I will do the same. I love the idea of being able to think of each and every person who has touched my life while viewing my wonderful Christmas tree during a season that is all about being with the people we love!!

Sickness & TMI

I was horribly sick monday. Apparently at one point or another I picked up some kind of stomach flu. Luckily it was just a short 24 hour bug otherwise I'd have really been in a mess! I absolutely abhor not being able to do things for myself. Sure the idea of being waited on hand and foot is appealing from time to time, but when you're sick and floating in and out of consciousness between frequent bathroom trips - you feel like a burden more than a pampered queen. I must say though that I have the absolute best and most amazing mother-in-law in the world.

Saturday Nights

Chris and I have been married for two months; we've know each other for four. Crazy? A little. Life changing? Yes. Love? SO much! Worth the pain of the months prior to our meeting? YOU BET.
Saturday 9
[01] What do you see when you are watching the wheels go round? Watching the wheels go round... what kind of question if that!?! What wheels?
[02] Do you watch reality shows? Nope, sure don't.
[03] What's your favorite all time reality show? Don't have one. I've never cared for them, they're just too fake, but I did watch the Osbornes there for a while.
[04] Do you feel "reality" shows are real or are they faked? Fake fake fake.
[05] What does your personal neon sign say to the world? Smile!
[06] Ever seen a neon sign with certain letters burned out so that it said something unintended? Personally... I don't think so, but then again it's possible that I have and just don't remember.
[07] What gives you a headache? Strong smells, a room filled with smoke, really loud noises and sometimes just random things.
[08] What song, artist or album in your music collection would you pull out and play if you wanted to give your roommate/neighbors a huge, head-splitting headache? Nothing. I don't have any wild music anymore. lol.
[09] What do you do to relieve stress? candles, music and a really hot bubble bath.

Excetra, excetra

My last paycheck just came through from Magellan. One hundred and sixteen bucks to get me through until I have another form of income. Yes, while that is slightly scary I know that we'll be okay. On a very good note the hubby keeps getting some amazing job offers. We'll see what happens! 

I love that I'm going to be watching a few kids again. I'm so excited! I love getting crafts together to do with them and going to the park, ext. It's so much fun to watch a little one learn and see new things. Plus I'll actually be "teaching" again in a sense.

Feeling very creative tonight, why can't this hit during the day!?! o.O 

I've got to start doing something here at blogger, I'm just not sure what. I guess I could start back trying to do a meme for each day of the week, that would give me a little bit of content at least. I wish I could afford to make things again... gr.

I'm pretty sure that I'm going to be making homemade presents again for Christmas this year, so I should probably buy what I'll need and get started on that soon!!! 

On a side note, I have GOT to get started on our scrapbook! Ooooh, yard sale hopefully this weekend if the weather permits it! ^.^
