Newer Beginnings

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I’ve blogged anything.  My life since last year has taken some unexpected twists and turns and while the year is still young, I’m still a little muddled at where this path is going to take me next.

Where to start.  Scottie is now a year and a half old.  He continues to be a constant source of joy for me and his parents.  It is simply amazing watching him grow from being a little baby into a toddler.  He is walking…no running…and climbing all over the place.  He is starting to speak and has wicked temper tantrums when he doesn’t get what he’s asking for.  He calls me “amma” and says “hi ya” “ee ya” (see ya) gives wonderful hugs and is just a big ham.  As you can tell I love him to death.  I have had the opportunity to babysit a few times, I think I’m suited for the role of Grandma!  Love it!

Erin is now in 12th grade, and is looking forward to Graduation.  She is still quiet and our bookworm, but hopefully soon she will be working and coming out of her shell somewhat in the next year.

As for me, in June I finished my 2 year program, and in August I found myself living in Kamloops, renting a room from a childhood friend.  By Sept, I found that my husband decided he didn’t want to move here with me, so now I’m separated, and making it permanent, I guess soon.  Life is full of surprises.  I am enjoying being in the city, lots of things to see and do.  I am hardly ever home, whether it be looking for work, shopping or just visiting with my adopted family.  I’ve made a few friends but I do miss my family.  Oh heck, I miss Clearwater, but not the boring life I led before.  At least now, I get out, take the bus downtown, sit in the park (when it’s warmer) or just go for a walk somewhere.

Let me see, what else can I catch you up on?  I guess that’s about it…Oh I am on a work trial for 30 days at a local retirement home, am enjoying it!  I am doing a bit of administration work as well as receptionist and kitchen work.  Answering the phones, and the door and building databases are part of my main duties.  No work is offered after this, but I figure it’s something else I can add on my resume as well as the experience which is something I can not give back!  LOL

So, I enjoy life one day at a time, take it as it thrown to me, and hopefully I don’t spiral out of control.  I’m doing okay with my good days outnumbering the bad days but I still have them.  I will be okay.  Yes there is a reason I am sure for this, but I will persevere.  I have to. I have 2 lovely daughters, a son-in-law and a grandson to love.  I will be okay.  Yes I will  🙂
