Doug's work has been very slow, so I have been trying to pick up the difference, which isn't easy, nor equaling money wise. lots of stress. Really tired of robbing peter to pay paul. I hate calling and asking for help or an extension on whatever payment I am trying to come up with.
Mom is doing GREAT, which is AWESOME! In fact, right now, she is on a cross country trip with her brother and sister in law. Having a ball, I think she is doing better than us kids as far as losing my Dad goes. it makes me very proud of her.
I gave her this picture of me to print and pin to one of the back seats, so I can come along!!!
I have been depressed lately, which any of you who KNOW ME, know that's NOT RIGHT! Just financial woes. Haven't been drinking 1/10th of my normal, for the past few months. Not as "comforting" to me anymore. I am tired ALL the time. Starting drinking coffee and I can drink a pot and still take a nap afterwards......is that weird? Or just me?
To top it all off , Janet (yes, Janet) my SECOND wonderful therapist in a row (how lucky is that?) is changing departments, so now she is referring me to a gal named Emily, whom I have met, and I like I suppose. It's just the "starting all over again" I dread.
Nicholas is doing AWESOME, finally maturing a bit. Poor thing is in the middle of the Peter Brady voice change, and has been for about 5 months now. Really sounds like a girl... I feel so bad for him. MEANWHILE, sweet shy Daniel, has been picking up the slack with a vengeance...He is physically maturing quicker than Nick, even though he is 23 months younger. They fight constantly and it's Daniel as the aggressor. So I FINALLY make it through Nick's years of drama, he is such a hoot now. And here comes another load with Daniel.
They say God never gives you more than you can handle, well apparently He thinks I am pretty bad ass! Comes with lots of tears and fears.....maybe I am NOT so BAD!!!
STAY WELL MY FRIENDS! I promise I wont be gone so long, I am trying to make some time for myself, its just few and far between. Most of the time I am on my phone, like on FB and Sparks just doesn't work right on my Android....cant do much there, so that doesn't help me stay connected!! I will do my best to take a few moments for myself in the future. Just feel as if I have lost my way sometimes.....just stress.....UGH
Love you All!

I have been dog sitting for my neighbors this weekend and decided to be nice and surprise them by cleaning their yard of the 4,859,659 sticker balls, I am SO SORE already, I am probably not going to be able to sleep tonight! Six 39 gallon trash bags full.....UGH! Why I decided to take this on, I don't know! It was too cold outside, my feet and fingers were literally numb, no joke.
Anyhow here is a before and after pic! I know they will really appreciate it, which is one reason I did it. But WOW I think I bit off a little more than I could chew, but I got it done......
I am tired and going to bed!!!!
Back tomorrow peeps!!!

Anytime my mother wanted to buy something my father would always say no, so now that he's gone she has bought herself a new gorgeous electric fireplace and a leather couch, cranberry color, that she said, he always said leather was never allowed in the living room though the living room is now her living room! So all these things she has wanted, and deserved, for the last 50 + years she is finally getting, though not going overboard. I am so happy to see her handling things this well and making the house now her own, she has deserved this for so long.
I am very proud of my Mom, I think she is handling this so much better than us kids which makes us even more proud of her. If you ever have the chance of meeting my mother you will see that she is indeed an angel here on earth.
I'm going to see the couch and stuff tomorrow for the first time so pics will follow.
Have a terrific night my Spark Peeps and I will fill you in more tomorrow sleep well and I love you all !
P.S. This is a picture of my mother after my brother took her to the movies and she picked "Magic Mike" not knowing what it was about.... Boy what I would have given to be a fly on the wall.

Okay, most of you know my son Nick is quite a special guy.
We had a rough night a while back and he turned into Satan after I took his cable box due to his behavior. Anyway it was ugly, he ran off at 1 am and did some damage at our neighborhood store.
So court today he was " sentenced to 2 weekends" on the Chain gang....I love it. He didnt destroy a lot of monetary damage, but that's not the point. So for the next 2 weekends from 8:30 am -3:30 pm, I have to drop him off at the Juvenile Detention Home where he will be on an outside "workforce" doing mulching, raking etc. I am glad since he DOES NEED TO LEARN A LESSON. So for 2 weekends he is on House Arrest starting at 5 pm (which wont bother him one bit, since he likes to be here) BUT he is in for a HUGE WAKE UP CALL when the work begins, he has an accountants hands....and swears a RAKE doesn't fit them. So I am going to sit back and take A WEE BIT OF PLEASURE of seeing him learn some landscaping.
IF he gets kicked out (he wont) the remainder of the time he owes will be spent in the Detention Home, no worries there (I hope). He also must take some classes in addition to his therapy he is already in with me, on how to control himself when he doesnt get his way, I say GREAT!
So wish we luck!!! My boy may have a chance after all!!!
Will let ya'll know whats happening and how it goes!!!
Thanks you all for your always continued support with Nicholas, it is all appreciated!
Love to you all,
This is Nick and our neighbors dog Abbie that we babysit when they are lucky enough to go out of town!!
