Well I’m glad this week is over. On to a new chapter. We went to dinner last night to say bye to Grace. She left today 😢. I also packed up my office at the law center. I’m ready to see what this new job has in store for me. Well I must get ready for bed and make sure I have everything ready. Here are a couple pics of my Gracie
Well as I said before big change in my life. I have changed jobs in the midst of all of this. I will no longer be a legal secretary. I took a pay raise to run a flooring store. It’s what is best for my pocket right now. I won’t go into detail but I just know I need to be somewhere else now. I have loved my job and the people I work with and my clients. Some of whom I now consider friends. It wasn’t an easy choice but one I had to make. Wish me well I start Monday. Until then I have to say goodbye to my little girl Grace. She leaves tomorrow for basic training. I’m so proud of her but tonight’s dinner will be hard.
Well without saying much the next few days will be extremely difficult for me. Big decisions and moves. Do we ever know if our decisions are the right ones? That is what life is about I suppose taking chances that we think will be lucrative and hope we r right. I will be listening to my deities and doing a reading. So with that said I hope you all have a wonderful day.
Well life is very busy right now. Trying to get stuff started. Work and home. My grace leaves Sunday for basic training. I’m so very proud of her. But will miss her terribly. I also started taking CEU classes again. The first one I’m taking is on goal setting. I have lots of aspirations for the next couple years. And really want to get to a place where I can work at home. Lots of hard work but I know it will pay off.
Well today is a chaotic day for me. Mentally. So currently I don’t speak to my father. He has never really been a father to me. I know he’s done the best he can but it still sucks. I’ve made the choice that instead of letting it and him poison my life I have stepped away to keep the negativity out of my life.
I’ve had a few other men I’m my life I have considered to be dads. The first was Mark. He was my fill in moms husband. He was a very strong presence in my life for a while. Unfortunately his addictions landed him in prison. Second was Les my moms husband of 25 years when she passed. We were never really close but I do love him. I will call him today.
Third is Bill. He is my ex husband Shauns dad. He has been my favorite person. He came to live with us in 2013. He met a wonderful woman Tammy. Eventually they bought a home and got married. Even tho Shaun and I are no longer together they are still very dear to me. I consider him a dad for sure. So a quick shout out to Bill. Happy Father’s Day. Love your face.
So this is a story about 2 girls trying to be cute. First of all meet marge. We both work in the office. Both for Katie. Marge also works for Wes. But usually it’s always the 2 of us there no matter what. We started out butting heads. We are both very different. Now we get along really well. She is a dear friend to me. So the one thing we have in common is shoe size and our love for cute comfy shoes.
So we both got to work at the same time. Rob dropped me off today cuz he needed the car. He walked me in and as he was walking back out marge had gone before him to get stuff from her car. All I heard was OMG are you ok. She had stepped wrong on a stone and went down on her hands and knees. By the time I got out there she was sitting with her legs straight out. After a few minutes Rob helped her up. She ripped the shoes off and said here you take them. She had flats In Her car. Now the shoes were hella cute so what did I do? Put them on of course. They felt very comfy and easy to walk in. Yay!!!!
So I wore them all the way til almost lunchtime. I came back behind the main desk where I work with a stack of papers in my hands. I was standing there talking to marge. Next thing I know I somehow stepped backwards into a crack in the floor and went straight backwards. I like to think it was very graceful. Almost did a backwards somersault but never dropped the papers. When I finally settled into the seated position with my legs out ( the same position I found marge in). All I could do is laugh hysterically. Marge was standing in the other side of the desk with her mouth open and laughing at the same time. Needless to say we both took Motrin to make it through the day. Tomorrow will be interesting. What happened to the shoes??? She took them home back to her daughter where they came from. LOL. They were referred to as the devil shoes for the rest of the day.
So We were outside visiting with my daughter and her friends. Right next to door I have a big plant. I glanced over and saw a little dragonfly just sitting on the top of the plant. I of course started talking to it. It is after all my spirit animal. Well this sweet thing just sat there staring at me. We had a little conversation and I put my finger out and she jumped on and let me hold her for a while. I kept talking to her in awe. So beautiful. She kept coming to me and sat with me numerous times on my finger. Rob also reached out and she sat on his too. It was such a beautiful and special moment. When a dragonfly sits on your finger it’s a sign of good luck. So very awesome. Life is full of precious memories like this. We just have to pay attention.
Today was my mom and her husband Les’ anniversary. When she died in 2011 it was 25 years they had been married. Today is also 9 months that me and Rob have been together. So happy 9 months love.
It seems there just isn’t enough time in the day to get stuff done. I always have so much to do and I always used to be so good at getting it all done. My goal this weekend is to accomplish stuff and get organized again. So I can get stuff I need to do done daily. I have so many things I want to accomplish. So with that being said…I’m ready to go.
I believe our loved ones can come back to send signs of their presence once they are gone. This happened to me the other day. I have a Fitbit. I was scrolling through the watch faces to select for free for a background. I came across a residual face from Mother’s Day. It had a saying on it with pink flowers 🌸 about your mom In Heaven. it caught my attention so I stopped and the date that was on this particular sample was February 21. That is my moms birthday. It struck me as if she were speaking to me. It was really cool. We were very close and I miss her a lot. I felt her presence and it was a comfort. I also have her dog missy. She became mine after my mom died. She is 13 years old now and has been acting strange for the past week or so. I think she is at the end and somehow the watch face was a sign that she would be gone soon. I wish I had the answers to all of these things. But I do know what my heart says. I feel she was telling me to be prepared for missy to pass on soon. Anyway. I wanted to share that
Well this is 2 days of being very busy at work. Doing my evening chores now. After that I will be continuing on my business plans. Have a few different things in the works. The trick here is balance. I already have such a busy life it’s hard to make time for everything. The things I want to do are a big part of who I am and I want to be able to share that. Well enough talking about it. Time to make a plan and make it happen.
Today was definitely a Monday. Super busy and very productive. Also went to see my newest grand baby Josephine. One of my should have been mine girls had her on June 3. She is adorable. Picture to follow of course. When we got home our dear little big Kirk had put the kitten in the wrong rv. Lol. She tore up the chicken I had defrosting and had a small feast. Ewwwww. Luckily we salvaged enough to make delicious chicken souvlaki. (Greek food). Then my so. Tyler called me on FaceTime and I got to talk to him and my other granddaughter Irena. Pretty good day. Now time to do some chores and get ready to do it all again.
I’m sorry for the silence. I’m still trying to balance all that I have going on. A lot has happened since I last posted. My sweet girl Grace graduated high school. My last one. I can’t believe the time has gone already. She leaves in like 3 weeks for the basic training. 😢. I will miss her terribly.
