I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year’s Day. We actually had a pretty cold December. We even got snow on the 8th. Of course, this is the south so it was all gone by the 3rd day. It never stays cold enough for the snow to stay any longer than a day or so. But the kids had fun playing in it. I took a lot of photos which I haven’t even finished editing yet. I have a few I can share though.

I haven’t meant to neglect my blog. I have been so busy with school. I decided to go back and get a Bachelor’s in Graphic Design. I do have an Associates, but it’s a technical degree so I didn’t have to take stuff like College Algebra or English Composition. I actually had already taken English Comp I several years ago. So I am taking English Comp II this semester. It is kicking my butt. I am normall a A/B student in English, but apparently writing papers is just not my thing. At least not the way this teacher wants me to write. As far as College Algebra, I had to drop it. I wasn’t doing too hot in that class and I just didn’t understand the material. Of course all of my classes are online. I’m thinking that maybe I should have taken College Algebra on campus. I’m not sure I would have grasped the concept much better, but at least I’d be able to ask questions in real time. Math has never been my thing anyway. I started having trouble with math in probably 6th grade. I just can’t wrap my head around math concepts, especially College Algebra. It’s like I’m trying to read a foreign language. School is just making me feel really stupid right now.
My younger two are in full swing with homeschool. My oldest is 20 now and works away from home for several months at a time. He’s in South Carolina right now. He’s also newly engaged. It’s crazy that I have a child who is old enough to be getting married. His fiancee is the sweetest girl. They’ve been dating for 4 years so she’s already pretty much a part of our family, but I’m glad it’s going to be official. My stepdaughter moved to Ohio with her kids. She didn’t even tell me in advance or anything, so my feelings were hurt. I had the kids the previous weekend (3 yr old and a 7 month old) and took them back home on Monday. I messaged her later that week to check on her and the kids and that’s when she told me that she and the kids had moved. I was dumbfounded to say the least. I’m not sure exactly what happened. She just said that she couldn’t handle staying in the apartment complex she was in any longer. I understand that, but sheesh, did she have to move 12 hours away? I was used to getting the kids every other weekend or so and now I’m going to have to drive to get them. And I’m sure you’re wondering why Ohio? Her mom moved there a few months back. I’m hurt because her mom rarely helped her or the kids. I was the one who took my stepdaughter places she needed to go and babysat the kids while she worked. So for her to just up and move was kind of a slap in the face. I don’t expect a medal for helping her out, but a little appreciation would be nice.
So yeah, that’s what’s been going on around here the past few months. I’m going to find some giveaways to post, so check back soon!
