I realized it's been quite a while since I posted on my blog. I've been pretty busy with school and family and the house and dogs and cat (not so much the cat lol). There always seems to be something that needs to be done. Finishing school is at the top of my priority list. I need to finish so I can get on with my life. Also there will be an addition to our family! I will be a Nana again in June. My baby Beckaboo aka dramateen, is having her own baby!! It will be nice to be done with school so I can help her out! As far as school goes, I'm not sure what direction I want to take my career except for the fact that I want to give back. I want to do something to help someone not just feel pretty but good about themselves when they don't have much to feel good about. I'm hoping maybe hospice or children or a nursing home. I have been offered an opportunity to take a class at a salon for wigs for kids! The class is November 13, 14 which is kinda cool since the 14th is my birthday! I'm actually looking forward to this which is funny to me because I am so over school and can't wait to finish!!
Rick is doing great! We are very blessed and lucky that he has made a fantastic recovery! Life is so much sweeter when you realize what there is to lose and how close you come to losing it! There are so many people not as fortunate as us. I have outlived my dad, still miss him every day, and haven't spoken to my mom since Gram died. I can honestly say I have tried. It was suggested that I write her another note just simple and short. I didn't get a reply which doesn't surprise me.
So I guess in closing, life is good. I have a good life with people who love me. (quality not quantity) and I'm living life as best I can, 1 day at a time.

The year 2015 has brought so much to my life, good and bad. Each year is the chance for a new, fresh start. This year is no different. When I reflect upon my past year, I can’t help but think about certain moments. Rick being so sick and almost loosing him. I will forever have those feelings of dread when he says “I’m just not feeling well” We don’t argue as much even though his socks on the floor by the bed and him leaving the shaving cream out, still drives me nuts. I would be lost if I never got to see that again. He is my best friend and an incredible partner who I'd be lost without.
I don’t want to focus on the sad things like realizing friendships aren’t what I thought they were or people who have hurt me. I need to remember that all those sad or hurtful moments were life lessons. I am not perfect myself but I always have good intentions.
Last year also gave us much to be thankful for. Our dream home was built and we got to move in! Rick’s health slowly improved, I went on a fantastic vacation to Key West, we adopted our insane puppy Ollie, my beautiful girl Becky is back home, I began my education towards my dream job and Rick is healthy again!! Oh wait! I said that 2 times lol.
My goals this year are pretty simple. We will be going someplace warm with sand after this winter ends, a new patio and hopefully a pool for our yard, do some work inside the house, not worry about what people say about me because they aren’t my true friends. learn. I need to appreciate amazing people in my life and not be so focused on not worrying about if others don't like me. (I do have some incredible friends) I have accepted the fact that some people, family included just don't want to be a part of my life and that hurts but it's their choice, not mine. I need to learn as much as I can at school so I can graduate and be successful in my new career. It does amaze me how we start the year with the best intentions but slowly distance ourselves from the goals. My main goal is for those I love and care about, family and friends, to be healthy, happy and loved. I am so blessed to live the life I live and I will appreciate every day, good and bad.
Happy New Year 2016!
