Well, my first post. Been at this schoolin thing for the second time about seven years now, with a few breaks here and there. One of which was a mental breakdown. The result of alot of stuuuuuuffffff that happened close together forced me into early menopause, in, out, finished, and fybermyalgia, sciatica, and chronic depression. I'm a cancer survivor. Some days I go to work when called and some days I don't. I'm an on-call substitute educational assistant for the county school district. My last gig was in a teenage Life Skills program for the metally disabled. I'm a step parent, a grandmother, and still a mom with one 13 year old in the house. I've been in the same place for 28 years with the same man, but that doesn't mean I haven't been places, the first 20 years of my life, I moved every four years with my folks and siblings.
I don't celebrate holidays and birthdays, but I'm happy anyway and my husband doesn't mind because he saves alot of money. We are very stable folks, so when stuff happens in my family or my husbands, they come to us to fix it. We've handled some whoppers! Some we just didn't touch.... My grandbabies are the world for me right now. A boy and a girl, natural grandkids, anyway. Little girl has cerebral palsy. They do not live next to me anymore and that makes me sad
In the evening, I'm just not motivated to work on homework and I want so much to just be a homemaker. Going to school though and subbing is exhausting, but I love it...I go to work with a smile and come home with a smile, so to stop would just mean to vegitate. I've started a junior novel, a western, on a dare from my husband. I crochet, right now I'm into hats. I'm finishing a tie quilt finally for my nieces boy who is six now, yeh, I procrastinate bad...I can food, garden, love my english garden that has been five years in the making. Read everything I can get on disorders, give respite care for two good friends, one with Williams Syndrome the other has Asberger's. My second step son has dyslexia and his adopted boy has ADHD. Well, enough for now.
I'm procrastinating, gotta do some homework. Some day, I'll be a teacher....that's the dream anyway.
Peace out. 2pink
