It's Only Wednesday?

Okay , I have to say first that I am not usually as whiny as the I am going to be in today's post. This week so far has been a total nightmare. I sometimes wonder if I just stopped moving completely would life as I know cease to exist?....yeah it would. Let me tell you about the week I have had. Monday was like the craziest day, my husband and I had been arguing for the past two weeks with Miles Furniture Company in Pensacola (do not go there), anyway, we bought furniture from them last month and had it delivered, when they delivered the dining table the foot fell off, there were gouges in the side of the table and it was all scratched up. I was like , "I don't think so". I called the sales guy we had been corresponding with and he told me he didn't have another table in stock so it would take 3 weeks to get a new one, 3 weeks roll around and no new table and no phone call, so I call the sales guy and he's like , what new table?...By this time I am fuming, so we argued about him ordering a new table finally after two weeks, Monday to be exact they came and picked up the table and we got our refund. Then the tags on my car went out. I won't even go there. Anyway, then yesterday after I picked Katrina up for school we came home and I had to get the stuff out of the trunk, long story short I locked my keys in the trunk. Because it is a Jag you can't get into the trunk normally , noooo, I had to call a locksmith and he will be here this morning to make a new computerized key at the bargain price of $150 bucks, needless to say I will be glad when this week is over. So now I ask again, It's only Wednesday?...........

Well I'm here , now what?

Well I know it's been some time since I have posted anything new. With all the moving and packing and unpacking and unpacking some more it's been kind of hectic. Things are starting to become normal now..yay...as normal as it gets at least. Hubby is having a fine time working at his new job sometimes I swear that if he doesn't stop talking about work when he gets home I am going to scream. I have met a few nice people since we moved here. Trina has met a few friends and I have to say that's a relief it took less time than I anticipated. Well I know it's short but guess what I have to go do, I have to go unpack some more. Wish everyone a happy weekend and an even happier week. I will start blogging again on a normal basis, just trying to settle in.

A Few Days Behind


Well its getting closer , my husband and I will be going out this weekend to Florida to secure housing and iron out the details of his new job. So many things to do and so little time to do them. I wonder if things ever seem to slow down. We have researched housing, schools, crime,cost of living, and everything else in between. I know I will forget to do something don't we all?...If you don't keep up with life it will run right over you. Feeling a little frazzled can you tell?
Have a good week!!

Wondering if it gets easier

I think back when my daughter was two and only wanted to be close to mom. She is fixing to be 11 now and sometimes I wonder if she is the same child who clung to my hand every chance she got. I see her beauty and worry about the years to come. How many times will we have to watch her get her heart broken, how many times will we feel the sting of betrayal from her friends. This beautiful and endearing girl is reaching out into the world and I have to wonder will she reach for me when she's feeling lonely or sad?
I know we all have the same fears about drugs, sex, and crime, but why do we sometimes feel as if we are the only parents going thru this dilema.
Statistics say "In 2000, the total number of teen pregnancies in the United States was 821,810 (84 pregnancies per 1,000 people). In the United States, the 18 - 19 year-old age group has the highest rate of pregnancy followed by the 15 - 17 year-old age group."
We talk to our daughter about everything and I don't think it's the schools job to teach them about sex, as parents we have that responsibility. If more families talked to their children on a daily basis concerning, drugs, teenage pregnancy and everything in between , I believe this country would be a better place.

I know I'm ranting but as I look out at the streets and see 12 and 13 year olds pregnant and walking the streets, I wonder, where are their parents?...and why aren't the parents asking on a regular basis...where are you going?...who will you be with?....It just ceases to amaze me that alot of kids are running around staying out past midnight and when asked what time their curfew is..they reply I don't have a curfew my parents aren't home.

It is our responsibility as proactive parents to make sure our kids have the stability and guidance that so many kids out there don't have.

When I look at my daughter I have all these issues running thru my head and think it was so much easier with my son. My daughter is turning into a beautiful teen and all I can do is say...where has time gone.
