At Last!

We have had some major issues with our computer. Several virus episodes. After the last one we had it totally wiped clean and reinstalled, plus we added Norton Internet Security. Now I can blog all that I want. Steve and I bought some guns. I am going to get my concealed permit. I want to do it before the next election because I think that it is a possibility to have the chance to get one after that taken away, plus with the world going down the crapper I want to be able to defend myself and my family. We went and shot them Saturday night. It was fun. Afterwards I broke down the gun, cleaned it and put it back together without Steve touching it. Can we saw AWESOME!!! He did talk me through the process however. It was a good date night.

Can we say ow?

I put the girls' bunk beds together the other day, by myself, so it took most of the day. Yesterday and today my hamstrings are so sore that it hurts to sit. Jaxon took a run at my legs and I about crumbled because they hurt so bad. Am I woose or what? But hey, the beds are together and now I can move on to other spring cleaning.

Subbing is great!

I get to substitute teach at my daughters' school at least once a week. I love it. My favorite place is in the Junior high. These are the kids that I coach soccer for. I've also subbed in 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade, plus for the drama teacher. I love spending time with these kids, but don't think that I could do it every day for an entire school year. Thus I will stick to the subbing and not have to be there everything

I am the assistant soccer coach at Lakeview Academy. Until today, my team hadn't lost a game. Today my team lost 3 - 0. They just had no heart or energy. They pretty much defeated themselves. I tried to talk them up, but it didn't take. They were demoralized after one goal against them. It was hard to see them this way. I felt like a helpless parent on the sidelines. The above picture pretty much shows how I am sure that they felt. Nothing like taking one in the face.

I detest the snow!

I thought that spring had sprung. My rhubarb is sprouting out of the ground as well as some of my herbs and also my strawberries. Then 2 days ago, it snowed and then it snowed again yesterday off and on all day. I want to plant my garden and start reaping the benefits of my diligent work. This snow stuff is for the birds, and to think that I grew up in it. Give me the nice sandy beaches, sunshine and sound of the ocean any day!

All mine!

I decided that it was time for me to have a blog that was all mine. One that I can put whatever background, picture or music on. Also one that if I screw it up, it won't lose all of the family stuff. I figure that this blog will let me vent, cry, whine, and maybe even uplift myself and others who choose to read it. I chose the title from a commercial I saw seeing as a teenager. I remember thinking that I wished there really was a place like on that commercial that I could escape when times are tough, or when I felt that I couldn't burden others with what I needed to let out. So I guess that all in all I am hoping that this will be some type of therapy for me.
