Life is Good...........

Ok read me last post and what a pity party!  Someone should bitch slap me for being such a cry baby.  I have nothing to complain about I have a great husband and family, a good job that I enjoy most of the time, great friends and healthy kids!  So now if we could just get some sunshine!!  Cole has his last basketball game tomorrow night and then we start baseball and T-ball unless we got snowed out.  Crazy weather lately.  I celebrated St. Patty's Day having dinner and drinks with friends and we are so excited that Tony and Audrey are coming to stay with us for part of Spring Break!  And I got to see Jamie this week she was here with Jim for a few days while he had some doctors appointments.  I love seeing them!  I hope anyone who has nothing better to do than read my blah blah has a great rest of the week!!!

Well I yet again have sucked at posting anything to my blog.  Not that anyone reads it....2012 has kicked off to be a big pile of quick sand that I am sinking into while life goes by and I see people walking past me and some kicking sand in my face to speed up the process.  Lost my Aunt Deb who I had not talked to in a while and I kind of blame my Dad who passed away 8 years ago on that.  Long story.  I did love her and although we were not close at the time she passed we shared many memories and I know she loved me.  She was an amazing woman and I feel so deeply sad that I had not taken the time to talk to her and did not realize she was not well. We had a very busy but good Christmas.  Took some time off my Mother was here from Arizona and Jake and his girlfriend Freya.  Went to help my cousins with my aunts home in Utah and attend her service in Utah.  Flew back and back to work and I was served papers that an ex employee is attempting to file a law suit for an employment issue.  Finally came to a settlement on my brother Cris's  estate that his wife let go bankrupt after his death 4 years ago and that I guess was not good enough so we will be going to court.  I swear I should have been an attorney I could pay my own salary with the amount of bills I have paid.  Working on 2011 taxes which are a f-ing blast when you are self employed and my annual licensing another joyous amount of paper work.  Anxiously awaiting the state reassessments to recoup funds and no longer allow me to support the individuals I have they way I need to. And an employee gave their 2 week notice on Tues. and it takes at least 1 month to rehire if all goes well so it looks like work is my calling so that is what I will do until I get it right.  The funny thing is that my New Years resolution was to slow down enjoy life and to look at the positive in things.  Well I will try to start that in February or maybe become a very nasty person that the life has been sucked out of by what I allow to happen to me and how I chose to let it make me feel.  So if anyone reads this just laugh and think what a whine bag!  Because as usual I will get over myself and fix it all for everyone at my own expense:) Mike did sign the kids up for Basketball , T-Ball and baseball so I do have that to look forward to.  I feel like such a failure of a parent when work doesn't allow me to be the parent I want to be.  But I do love what I do most of the time but it seems to get harder and harder to do.  Maybe it will all fall apart and I will find a new profession!  Who am I kidding I will be a service provider for life it is in my blood.  Maybe not always work for myself but I know I would be lost with out all of the amazing people I have supported and all that they have taught me.  Ok I am done and hopefully not until 2013!!

Well I have not posted to this site for quiet some time.  Life is good....I have been doing quiet a bit of volunteer work such as sitting on various committees, boards and advocacy groups.  Hoping to have some input on how and what services are offered and delivered to individuals with Developmental disabilities.  I have spent the past 14 years working for and with some of the most amazing individuals who have truly inspired me and taught me that there is nothing more valuable that a positive relationship, friends and the simple things in life.
Our family is doing well Cole is getting ready to sign up for baseball and still doing Hip Hop.  Macy is enjoying kindergarten and will be playing T-ball this year.  Jake will be graduating in June from Ohio State!!  Go Buckeyes!!  Mike is working on re-designing our shop.  I will hopefully have some photos to share soon!!

The kids Birthday Party!

We are so grateful to have so many amazing friends and family. It is always a hectic crazy day but it is always nice to see everyone. The kids had a great time! Mike and I just get bummed that we either don't get a chance to visit with everyone and/or not long enough. Thank you to everyone who was there to celebrate with us.

We made it home from Europe!!

We all had a great time. I will post a few pic's. We first stayed in Prague in old town square. We went to the Prague castle, went on a jazz boat at night to see the city and of coarse the Charles bridge. We also went to a torture museum it was really interesting. Then railed to Vienna where we saw St. Stephen's church and went on a boat cruise in Veinna to Melk where we visited a famous historical Abby. Of coarse had to go to a classical concert in Vienna. Then we railed to Munich where the train station was closed and this German man that spoke no English kicked us off in an unknown place. They I guess thought there might be a bomb in an unattended bag in Munich so they shut everything down. So we found a nice person that worked on the train to help up figure what subway to take with all our luggage. We visited Dachau the first concentration camp in Germany that was very tough to see but an important part of history. Watched the famous glockenspiel. Went to the mountains to see a few Barvarian towns and then up to the castle that Walt Disney used it as their trade mark. Of coarse that day it was pouring rain and freezing so I got out of line walked down the path soaked and got a coffee in town and just waited for everyone. They couldn't believe that I went all the way there and I copped out. But I was cold and miserable so I didn't care. I will post more details later tired and trying to get caught up on life.....
