Let's Give Them Something to Talk About...

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

Greetings Everyone!!

I'll start by telling my son, Nicolas HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Today would have been his 27th birthday, but he is in Heaven up above smiling down on me...Why? Because, with the exception of an essay, I have completed my undergrad program & I will be marching to receive my Bachelor's in Business Management.... This I have done in memory of my son, Nicolas!!!

By the grace of God, WE DID IT!!!!

Okay, so when I have completed my essay, what is my next step? Not sure, but I do know that while I am not ungrateful, this part time stuff is killing me financially!!! I feel that now that I am past being a full time student, I want to go back to work full time. I won't lie & say that I am not having concerns with my medical issues, especially now that I am having the dropsies, & dizzy spells, but, such as life...


How is everyone doing? I hope that all is well with everyone!! Life is way too short, so don't be too hard on yourself. Live a little!!

I hope you do get back to full time work, if that is what you are looking for...but please take care..those dizzy spells, etc. don't sound like fun at all...

Take care!!!
