It's been awhile

Where do I start? Haven't blogged in a while. Been so stressed out since my mom passed. Been trying to refocus but seems like things are getting crazy.

We decided to hold off moving, I am a bit bummed on that because I really wanted to start a new adventure in our lives. But since my dad is some what alone right now since mom passed, I feel it is necessary to stick around, at least for a year, until he is comfortable with his new life. I know it wont be the same, but he needs to embrace the new life and feel free. I know that sounds horrible, but he, myself and 2 of my sisters spent the last few years caring for my mom. It was not easy. Although I miss her dearly, I know she is no longer dealing with agony and pain and she is so much better off. We just have to pick up the pieces and start living our lives again.

In the midst of all this, my husband and I are looking for a new job. I want to stay at home, but there are not secure enough jobs out there that I know of that would allow me to stay at home that would also come close to what I am making now. My husband doesn't have the work experience I have so his jobs will more likely be at a lower pay. It's been real stressful. I can't wait though, to be at home. It's been a long time coming and this is the last year I get to spend with one of my kids before she is off to school. I really wanted to be at home the whole time, but the situation didn't allow us to do so.

But on a good note, we will be going on vacation soon and that will relieve some tension. Even if it's only 40 miles away, it still helps get away from the crazy life.

Well I am praying everything will turn out and it will happen real soon. Thank you for reading my blog and have a wonderful day.

    Hugs and prayers that things work out for you. It's hard going thru the grieving process. Best that you stick around for your dad for a bit.

    It doesn't sound horrible it's part of life unfortunately. Life is not always easy. She is happy where she is and your family can start living again.

    I sure hope you find the jobs you want.

    Good for you for taking a vacation. You deserve it!

    Have a wonderfull day too!
