Hey guys! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I’ve been so busy with the kids’ homeschooling, Rhiannon’s dance competitions, and my two (yes two) grandbabies. It still feels weird to say that I have grandkids LOL. Kali is 3 now and there was a time when her mom wasn’t letting us see her due to a falling out we had. But after about 6 months we mended fences with my stepdaughter. So we’ve been able to see her and I am so thankful! I have missed that adorable curly headed sweetheart. And then Keiran was born in February. He’s super cute and I know I’ll spoil him as much as I spoil Kali. I still keep myself guarded though. I try not to rock the boat too much when it comes to my stepdaughter because I don’t want her keeping me from the kids again. But she has her own apartment now and I’m hoping she’s on the way to getting her life straightened out.
Also, I’ve been busy trying to get my photography domain. Am I going into business as a photographer? I don’t know. But after the whole fiasco with another local photographer and a former friend, I decided to go ahead and buy the domain. I’m not sure if i mentioned it here, but a few years back, a former friend of mine and a local photographer went into business together for a short period of time. After they had a falling out, I found out that one of them (they each blamed the other) had considered buying the domain of the name I was using at the time so I wouldn’t be able to use it. I don’t even know if I’m even on their radar anymore, but I decided to go ahead and buy it and if nothing else, I will use it to display my landscape photos.
So to end this post, here’s just one of the many landscape photos I’ve taken:

Hey Everyone! I know it’s been awhile since I posted. I recently started classes for graphic design. I already have a degree in medical office technology and I tried for a couple of years to get a job in that field, but didn’t have any success with that. Then I was a childcare provider for awhile. I got tired of the long hours and low pay. The kids weren’t usually the problem. It was the parents who didn’t want to pay on time or they would want to dock my pay if they didn’t bring the kids (or if I was sick). All I can tell someone who is thinking about being an inhome childcare provider is make sure you get contracts. I don’t care if the person is your family or friend. I tried to take the nice route instead of the professional route and I ended up overworked and underpaid. That was my main motivation for going back to school.
Graphic design is something I’ve been wanting to learn for awhile and I’ve done a little bit. But I want to learn the advertising aspects and even learn how to make better graphics. I would love to work for myself as I don’t think I do well in an actual office setting. I am more comfortable in a home office. I’ve still got at least another year of classes so I guess I will just have to see what is out there once I graduate.
I am still homeschooling my younger two. Rhiannon is 16 now and Trey is 11. Rhiannon did think about going back to public school but decided against it. She prefers to be able to do her school work on her on time and I understand that. Trey just would not do well in a public school. He’s so used to being homeschooled and he prefers being here. My oldest is working full time and for awhile his job had him away from home. But now he’s been home for the past few months and he’s working locally. I love him but I wish he’d help out around the house. He’s 19 and makes decent money,but yet he gets mad if we ask him to pay a bill or two(like the internet or water bill, things he uses). I don’t charge him rent so it’s the least he could do.
Also, my 19 year old pregnant stepdaughter is moving back in with her daughter after not speaking to us for 5 months. I wasn’t excited about letting her come back and stay, but it was either she stay here or live on the streets. And I can’t let my grandchildren be homeless. Of course, I’ve caught attitude from some people, which is to be expected because they know how she has treated us in the past. But it’s just not in me to be a hateful person. My stepdaughter is supposed to be waiting for an apartment to become available so I am praying that happens soon.
I think that just about catches y’all up on everything. I am hoping to post more giveaways soon, so look for those!
