Percolated Updates

I have been away far too long from blogging. I'm not really sure why I do that. I guess I figure my life just gets too boring, and I have nothing to blog about, or my life gets too busy and I cant find the time to blog.


Since I have last blogged, I have gone through a lot of changes, and challenges. I went from not working, to working a full time job as a patient sitter for an 84 year old woman with leukemia. Not having a full time job for 17 years, I found this a bit challenging. However, after I have been working for 7 months now, I have finally learned how to juggle working full time and then coming home taking care of my family. At first this was a bit overwhelming, but I finally got the hang of it. Millions and millions of women had been doing this for years, yet it was my first time, I just had to remind myself that if other women could do it, so could I. Receiving my first paycheck was a great feeling, then each paycheck after that I learned how to plan the bills, and budget my money. It is such a great feeling being able to buy my own clothing, buy the girls clothing, buy anything we want, with out even asking my husband for any money. I know my little old lady will not live forever, but when she passes, I will continue working and find myself another old person to take care of.

Sitting with my little old lady for 9 hours a day became quite boring some-days. Although I cook for her, and help her with whatever needs she may have, I still became quite bored. Her sister in law taught me how to crochet. However, she only knew just double stitching and single stitching. Once I mastered that, I got on the Internet and taught myself the rest. Now I'm making all kind of things. I love it. I have even sold quite a few crochet items as well.

The girls are growing into really young beautiful ladies. Julie, my 15 year old, has been struggling in school and dealing with a lot of ups and downs and dramas. Here recently she discovered who her true friends really are and who she thought was loyal was really not so loyal and rather deceiving. Julie also got her permit and cant wait to hit the streets..I however can wait forever!

Libby, continues to do great in school and if she keeps her grades up she will be getting a scholarship to whatever school she decides to go to. Libby is unsure what to do with her life after she graduates, so therefor she will be going to a Technical College until she can figure out which career path she finds the most interesting. I don't think I have ever been as proud of my daughters and I am now!

In a nutshell thats all thats been going on. I hope that I can be able to keep up my blogging! I love blogging so much, just don't understand why I stop the way I do at times. Maybe now that I have a new hobby of crocheting, a job, and pretty much.. a life..I can continue to blog about whatever strikes my fancy, or whatever is on my mind... The ups, the downs, the turmoils, the drama, the thoughts percolating in my mind.
