was gone for a long time

Monday, December 19, 2011

First off, I want to apologize to all my spark friends for being gone so long. So much has happened since my last update. I lost my job is September. The stress just got to be too much and it all caught up with me and was affecting my ability to do my job to the best of my abilities and they decided to let me go. I was in a bad place after that for a long time. Still not sure I'm 100 % back from that place. Most days are really good. We also found out about 2 weeks into the school year that Aydan's TSS worker resigned, and he still has not been assigned a new one. He is doing really well in school, but still has trouble sitting in his seat all day and following some directions, but he is making progress.
In October, I hurt my back, and it still is not good. I can stand for about 1hr, and when trying to get something done, I just push through the pain and get there. I really should go to the doctor, but we just can't afford for me to have xrays, and I know that's what they would do. Kevin now drives over the road, to make up for my income. Right now, though, he is home almost every night because the demand for paint is down. They told him that usually changes in January. I hope they are right, because funds are really getting low.
On the upside, I have lost 5 lbs. Have really been trying to watch what I am eating, and we walk to the bus stop almost every day. It's not too far, but I am at least walking there and back.
I am going to try to be here more, but I can't guarantee it. We will see how things go. Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

    Hey There, Good to see you back. Sorry about all the hardships, but I know everything will work out for the best. One of my favorite quotes from Marilyn Monroe is "Sometimes things have to fall apart so better things can fall together."

    Welcome back! Sometimes life just stands in front of you screaming loud & strong & you just have to listen. Continue to do that as you make your way back slowly to working out, for now walking is best. I pray it gets better for you & yours.

    God bless & Merry Christmas.
