Hi.

I've forgotten about blogger, I think most people have. Despite my last post saying that I'm not interested in joining tumblr... I ended up doing so. Click here to follow if you are on there too.

I did delete my twitter account though. It just became more annoying than entertaining so it was time to let it go. I felt like I was sitting in a high school cafeteria, listening to a bunch of people worry about who is doing what, making fun of people's clothes, gossiping... and I'm not interested in that so rather than sit there and listen, I got up and decided to eat my lunch in the hallway, basically. Which is funny because that's where I actually ate my lunch in high school. My best friend and I would sit in a corner, eat lunch, and talk about things in our own little world.

Anyway, a few updates for anyone who may pop in from time to time... I still work from home but I don't like it as much as I did when I first got the job. The whole "work from home" euphoria has worn off and I never thought I'd say this but I'd much rather get up and commute to an office (since I can't earn a paycheck by just sitting around being awesome all day). Because I am considered "self-employed" I don't get any health benefits, no paid days off, not even holiday pay or sick days. I'm looking for something better and will never work from home again unless it's to work for myself. My kids' father is still lame. He has his "good" moments, if that's what they can be called, but for the most part he's still an embarrassment to my ovaries. He just doesn't understand that there is a difference between "having kids" and "being a parent." I won't hold my breath for him to figure it out either. I am still with my boyfriend and love him dearly.

My kids are amazing, I am so proud of them and I love who they are becoming. I hope I am steering them in the right direction in life because I didn't have much guidance when I was growing up. My parents are wonderful and I believe they set the right examples for me to be a good person but... I just wonder sometimes, "Why didn't they ever warn me about this or that in life? Why didn't they ever prepare me for certain things?" The way I learned was by not knowing any better, which means I was naive so I got blindsided a lot. I know I can't prevent my kids from ever making a mistake or getting their feelings hurt but I hope I can equip them with enough knowledge to at least experience LESS mistakes and struggles than I did.

I gotta go but I may be back soon, even if nobody reads this anymore, because tumblr is more pictures, quotes, gifs, and links to articles occasionally... but it was nice to log in here and get some words out of myself. I need to get back to writing more often. Well, bye. :)
