I feel soo overwhelmed right now

I have less that 5 days to get the landscaping done in the front yard. I hate having to worry about everything. I don’t even know if I have the right tools that I might need to use to get some live vegetation or plants or whatever the city wants me to have out in the front yard. I cant even order tools if I should need tools because I don’t have enough time. I really hope I can get something done and soon.

I also have to do some research for my uncle about some tool he needs and all he does is tell me go look at reidsupply.com and see if they have it. I do not know what size or what exactly I am looking for but he asks me to find it. I would have thought he would have asked one of my boy cousins since they deal with more tools than I do to look for it.

I also have to worry about getting costumes for all the kids.. yeah I know cutting it close but hey I have been busy a lot more busy than I usually am and the van is in the shop but I will get into those details later. I just have to keep telling myself to breathe and take each item at a time. Its easier said than done though 🙁 I wish I would have some help instead of me always worrying about everything.

I loved growing up in the 80’s

Just got back from Las Vegas. Most would think it was a pleasure vacation but it was for a time share presentation. I figured if we are going to be down in Las Vegas why not catch a show. We went to go see Michael Jackson Live .. tribute show. I loved every bit of that show. I wish I would have had the chance to see a real Michael Jackson show. I might not always agree with the weird things he did or was accused of but I thought he was a brilliant singer and performer.

I grew up listening to his music and bonded with one of best friends because she heard me listening to Michael and singing along and that is how we first started talking. I still to this day play his cds when I am driving. I am a typical 80’s kid who still likes eighties music and artists. I think it was awesome growing up in the 80’s.

I would love to be a real estate agent

My cousin got her real estate license and now I am thinking about doing the same thing. Because of her real estate license she was able to become a property manager and I would love a job like that. I love seeing my cousin get a real estate agent checklist going and running properties and selling houses. The pay is not bad also. I have seen her commission check and that alone makes me want to become a real estate agent.

I really need to find some kind of job to help out. Especially when the holidays come closer I remember how much I need to be working. We are doing okay and getting the basics paid but it wouldn’t hurt for me to find a job and help out more. I am going to keep looking for a job and hopefully someone will hire me soon.

If not I am seriously going to be looking into taking some kind of vocational schooling so I can get a certificate and maybe then I will be hired.

Not the news I wanted to hear but better than nothing

My doctors appointment didn’t go as great as I wanted it to but it didn’t go as bad. According to the doctor my left eye improved a little it went from 20/70 to 20/60 so that is a tiny bit of improvement. Not the improvement that I want though. my right eye is still 20/25 which is good. I wish my left eye healed quicker or at least I can be able to use some glasses or get an enhancement so I can be able to read my books and be on the computer longer.

I love reading books and watching movies and not being able to do either is driving me crazy. I don’t know how long this doctor will wait until he is able to give me a pair of glasses to see good or until he is able to do another surgery on that eye. All I know is that it is beyond frustrating not seeing clearly. I was so used to being able to see good with my glasses that I am seriously regretting right now getting this surgery. I am not a patient person and even though the doctor tells me to give my eyes time to heal it is really hard for me to be that patient.

Do you have family fun night ?

One of the things we like to do at least once a week is have family night. I believe spending time together as a family will make our bond stronger. I know my kids are growing up. The teenagers don’t want to hang out with us as much as the younger ones do. I try to have everyone not doing other activities for family night. I believe having family night makes a stronger bond with the kids. I always tell my children that they should feel comfortable coming to us if they have any questions or concerns.

During family night we all have dinner together and that is when we have discussions about how our day went and what we would like to do for the following week. We have each person get a turn planning family night. Some of the children have picked board games to play others have picked going to the Van Buren drive in theatre during the weekend. The little ones like to pick movies from netflix and have movie night with goodies.

I am glad we have started these little traditions with our kids. I think having a stable environment for the kids is very important. I hope when my kids are older they will do the same thing with their children. These moments in time go by so quickly and I would hate to have let all these moments pass by without all these wonderful memories of family fun with the kids. Do you have family game night ? What do you do for your family fun night ?


This is why I have been quiet.

In case you are wondering why I have been so quiet lately, it is because I had Lasik surgery on Sept 26,2013 and my eyes haven’t quite healed yet. On my one day post op appt the Dr said that my right eye was healing beautifully but my left eye wasn’t healing as quick as he would have thought. He said my right eye was doing all the work and that is why I was seeing blurry. Days have gone by a week to be exact and I am still seeing blurry. For some reason when I go outside my eyes seem to focus way better and I am able to see a little bit more clearer but definitely not 20/20 vision like I was hoping. The dr put in some kind of tear duct implant on my left eye and said hopefully that would help but it hasn’t helped much.

I go back in tomorrow for my 1 week post op appt and I am hoping I get some solution to this blurry vision. It is quite hard to be online very much and I have to rely remembering what letters are on the keyboard and then having my daughter proof read everything I write. I am sure my girls are getting annoyed at having to read or sometimes write for me. I feel a little bit bummed out about not being able to see clearly right away and I am trying to have as much patience as I can. Lets hope the Dr can figure out why my left eye isn’t doing so good.
