This will be my last post here. If you want to be added to my new blog, please post and I will add you.
Many of you know what is going on, but many dont... so I will fill you in. I really dont care if you approve or disapprove, its my life not yours.
The Husband and I are getting a divorce. It is my decision and its been a long time coming on my end. On his end.. I did a pretty good job of trying to convince myself I was happy, but on the inside it was tearing me apart. I finally decided it was no longer fair to him and that I needed to tell him the truth.
As far as children custody and all that.. we have worked it out so that he gets them a week, and then I get them a week and back and forth. I am currently looking or a place to live as I can not afford the house, nor can I handle the upkeep.
And yes.. I know what many of my readers think of divorce, but all well... like I said above..this is my life, and I refuse to live unhappy. Dont preach to me. I fell away from the belief of the Bible a long time ago and am struggling with that on my own.. preaching to me is only going to push me away.
Summer is officially over... school went back today. Lots of emotions, but mainly excitement and some were upset they couldnt sleep in any more!
Kyler starting 7th grade.. she seems to think shes too old to have her picture taken.. just wait til I do it every day through her senior year.. hmm.. I may even do it for college! I had to include a close up of her.. isnt she just beautiful?
Toby starts 4th grade. He lost his glasses and Ive been waiting 3 weeks for his new pair.. not happy.
Hayden starts second grade
McKenna starts first grade. She wants to go back to kindergarten though because she doesnt want to do PSAA (Pennsylvanias testing). Shes worried she wont know how to do it. Hayden kept telling her she will learn. Shes always the poser.. I couldnt get her to not pose.
And 3 of them, Kyler had already left when I realized I didnt get the group picture.
And off we go for another full school year of learning, football, baton, colour guard, wrestling and whatever else we can come up with! Because in this family.. anything goes lol. We may just have a few surprises in store.
Guess you could say I have been busy! Between work (work is giing me between 32 and 36 hrs a week), kids, house, husband and now football practice every night... well.. you can say I have been busy!
Work Its going great. Like I said above, I have been working a lot of hours. Yesterday I had my 90 day review (even though it wont be 90 days til next week, but I wont complain!). All is well. I exceeded in 2 areas, and met the goals in the other 10. I got a nice 4% raise.. okay so its not all that much, but hey.. better than nothing!
Kids They are growing up lol. School starts on the 27th.. I have a few that are ready and a few that arent. They are all ready to see their friends again though. Today we have an open house. I am officially the mother of a 7th grader, 4th grader, 2nd grader and first grader!! How did that happen?
House Well... lol. I dont see why I even made this a topic. Trying to keep on top of 4 children and a husband keeps me busy. Especially when they have been home all day. They are trying though.
Husband Hes doing well. Work keeps him on his toes, plus hes having to juggle the kids while Im at work.
Football practice Ugh lol. 5 nights of it last week, 4 nights of it this week. Though Kevin said this is the last week we can have 4 nights, so that will be nice. Though I bet Haydens coach has different days than Tobys! Oh and we got the game schedules. I have already asked for all the days off, I better get them! We have 8 games per boy. 5 of those are in different towns, close to the same time. Kevins coaching Tobys team, which leaves me to drive to Haydens. So I better get those times off, or else I may just call in sick! First game is Sept 7.. yep Ill have pics. The boys are doing great. They are completely different from last year. Which is a good thing.
Ill try to update when I can. Next week gets crazy. I work 36 hrs... mainly 8 hr days (31 of those hours are M/W/Th/F).. I also start fire school this week, so thats 2 nights during the week Im gone for 4 hrs each night. I think I may be a bit wore out lol. The week after still have fire school, but not as many hours. Then the kids also start back.
