New House

First I wanna start by saying thank you all for reading and commenting on my story. It was something that I struggled with writing for a long time and all of the positive feedback I received was really wonderful.

On to the good stuff....We bought a new house!!!!! Yay!! Im so excited. We are in the process of painting and fixing at this point but are hoping to move in my the 1st of August, God willing. I am so excited to be getting out of this place. I have been praying for something like this to come along for months now and God finally answered our prayers. Its an old Farm house, just like I like. I love remodeling jobs, and enjoy making things our own. The house comes with five acres which includes a pond near the end of the property and the kids are ecstatic. Its going to be a great place for us to be. Im so thankful! Im hoping, if I have time, to be able to post some before and after pictures because I would love to share it with you all. I hope everyone is doing well and I want to thank you all again for your support. It means so much to me!!If anyone has any super easy tips for destressing cupboards, please let me know. Thats what Im in the process of doing right now. Thanks Again everyone!!

College for dummies

Its been over a weeks since my last post and what a week it has been. I finally got my schedule for college which is super exciting and very scary. I cant believe Im actually going to do this. I have finally got all my ducks in a row and its really happening. And Im pretty sure I have gone to far to chicken out now. I have dreamed about going back to college and becoming a nurse for years now and I think its finally happening. I have said since I decided to go that I was definetly going to go on and get my bachelors degree. But recently I have been debating on going even further. I figure if Im ok with school and really enjoy my new found career, that I may get my masters and test to become a Nurse Practitioner for women health. I have been interested in becoming a mid wife since I had a mid wifes for my second pregnancy and it was the best experience of my life. I wish I had, had the same experience with my first girl, but regardless, it was still amazing. Anyways, am I crazy? I'm almost 31 years old and Im just starting school. Is this really all possible or am I putting to much on my plate. I guess Im just getting scared. I wish there was a handbook out there that had all the answers to life in it so we could all just read our book and not have to make all these life changing decisions. At least I have a huge support system in my husband whom is so fantastic. I thank God for him each day. Keep praying for me everyone as I start this whole new chapter in life that is scaring the crap out of me.

day two headache

A non-stop headache for the second day in a row is not much fun. Im definetly feeling the pressure to perform my motherly duties today. The only time the pain subsides is when I have my head pressed into a pillow. And we all know how much time I have to do that. Also, in about an hour, my daughters friend will be here for a sleep over. Sometimes I think I'm trying to punish myself by taking on so much, but my problem is saying the word "no". It seems like such a simple word, but to me it means dissappointing someone. And I dont like to do that. I guess its something that Im going to have to work on. But for now, i'll just keep pushing on, and waiting for words of encouragement from a few new friends. Thanks again everyone for listening to my babblings.
