OMG the craziness of my life has been nothing short of incredible!! I had one of the best summers I could have asked for in a really long time. Im sure you are saying, AWWWWWW good for you! Let me share with you.. It started off a lil rocky with my youngest starting the summer breaking his ARM..
This was what I looked like when I saw his X-Ray
But it got better from there, I started Origami Owl (<click to get to my page), as well as Younique ,(<click to get to my page). We took a road trip to North Carolina, very good possibility we will be relocating in the near future and I just feel I have grown as a person.
This summer was my 40th year on this earth.. YUP..me Im 40! And I love it. Now earlier in the year as you guys know my oldest left for the NAVY, and I was a sad MOMMA, but I got to see him a few times through the months, SKYPE, and text and all that good stuff! Well what I did not know was this, my family was planning a surprise party for me and what my family did not know was my boy was planning a surprise visit! So needless to say on 7/12/14 I walked in to my family yelling surprise ….HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! OMG I was so happy and so surprised..
So ya know I said my hellos and gave out hugs an kisses to everyone and figured, ahhhhhh how great would it have been if both of my boys would be here at the same time. My absolutely most awesome husband says ok lets get some photos before it gets to late and we are all in the pool and drinks start flowing and the camera gets put away. At this point I was like WHATEVER you want me to do, this is so GREAT!!! we get all lined up and WELLLLL guess who comes walking out:
It really was one of the best days of my life..as well as the best summers of well EVER!
IM BACK!! After a few long months and a whole LOT of changes in my life I’m back on the grid So let me fill you in on some of the things that have went on in my life..
I went back to school..ALMOST 40 years old and I decided that this is a great time to go back and finish what I had started almost 19 years ago..I was a beauty school dropout..kind of..lol I finished the school and took my written state board but never took my practical. So I worked in the beauty business with my temp till I needed to go get my actual license, BUTTTTTTT decided to have a baby instead..so there was a lil kink in my plan.. So I waited and waited and waited, then we planned our wedding…. then we had another baby…well the list goes on so lets just say I had to start all over again and it was such a great experience. It is not so easy to get back into the swing of school when you have not been there in a really long time.. Thank god it was a 3 month course! Well I passed and I am now a NYS licensed Nail Technician..
My Oldest son Andrew, Left in January for Boot Camp in the Navy, ONE of the HARDEST moments of my life was to watch him leave that night, and again to watch him get sworn in the next day and get on the bus. We were not able to speak with him but for three or four times during BC. The first call I received was when he got there, Call came in about 2:45 am and it was a scripted call stating they were there and ok and that they will be sending home a box with all of there clothing in it and to expect it via FED EX, that I need to sign for it and the next time I would hear from him would be in about 2 weeks.. and then he said I love you mom and then silence… OMG ..OMG I was beside myself! 2 weeks and I cant talk to you and it was the middle of the night..can you say panic attack.. OHH yes I forgot to mention my husband rolled over and says He ok..i said yes hes there .. he says ok good night..GOOOOD NIGHT are you crazy I need to talk I need to vent.. I needed to cry.. But needless to say 8 weeks passed and it was an EMOTIONAL 8 WEEKS but I got the call 7.5 weeks in that ”’MOM, I DID IT..I AM A SAILOR” Can I tell you my heart was overfilled with joy because this meant I was going to be with my baby in less then a week to watch him graduate.. OHHHHH what a day that was.. He is now in A school in Pensacola FL and is learning his trade, He is going in as an AS..learing how to be a mechanic for planes and all that good stuff..
My husband and I have made a decision, A BIG DECISION ..We are putting our home up for sale and we are moving SOUTH!! South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky…. Not sure where yet but we are doing our research..
Last but not least I have decided to become an Origami Owl Jewelry Designer, But that will be for my next post, you can follow me as I make progress with that.
