Trying Something New

Hello everyone!  Today I am going to try something new.  I am creating a new blog dedicated to crochet.  This is an old hobby that I recently picked back up and am seriously loving.  My family blog has suffered a lot due to Facebook being a much faster and easier outlet for me.  I think that the crochet blog will help keep my interest because Facebook is not conducive to writing patterns.  I hope you will join me at calypsocrochet.blogspot.com , and enjoy relaxing, and making some cute stuff while you're at it!

Quit My Job

Alrighty-tighty.  So I had this great job in a law office for about a year-and-a-half.  It was fun-ish.  I liked it, but I was not a good mom anymore, and I was overwhelmed at work (because they had me performing two full-time jobs), and my boss was unkind.  I started to wonder why, when I would never tolerate abuse in my personal life, I allowed it from my boss.  What makes us think that just because someone is employing us, or paying us (in my case a whopping $10 an hour when I have a frickin' bachelor degree), that we have to allow them to treat us badly?  I understand that as adults, sometimes it is just our job in life to find out exactly how much misery life can shovel onto us before we lose it.  We discover that we are surprisingly able to handle a whole lot more than we thought we ever could.

On the other hand, when we have the power to put a stop to a certain amount of that misery, why do we continue to take it?  That's what happened to me. I had stayed in the job for quite some time because I felt an obligation to my boss who had been very good to me on a couple of occasions. I came to the realization that just because he had been good to me on an occasion or two did not mean that I am indebted to him forever, and that my family was more important to me than his business. I realized that just because I was grateful to him for the things he had done for me, didn't mean he was grateful to me for the things I had done for him.  In the end, I decided to end an abusive relationship in order to strengthen a relationship that meant more to me.  In some ways, I felt like I was giving up.  Like I was letting him win.  On the other hand, I get to be with my family and spend time with my children.

Yeah, I totally win!

Tonight

So, I have been terribly negligent of you blog, but there's nothing interesting to write about anymore.  I'm afraid that if I don't post though, that it will be taken down.  So I post more inane stuff, just to keep my blog going.  Some day I'll have something cool to post.  Ah!  I have an idea!  I'll post it tomorrow!  Get excited!!

Hey Guys!

So, in the last year-and-a-half I started a new job at the biggest bankruptcy firm in St. Louis.  I'm a paralegal.  I process cases and I set appointments and do all kinds of other super-important stuff. ;)  My kids got old.  Daniel is 11 years old, ladies and gentlemen, and sweet baby Launa is now 8.  Let's see, Launa was the only second grader in her school in the gifted program last year until they were able to get another child in with her, so I'm pretty proud of that. Daniel is freaking hilarious!  He makes me laugh all the time.  It's fun to watch your kids grow.  I hear that all stages of growing up are pretty fun.  Jeremy is now going to school for Information Technology.  He's awesome. He'll do amazing. :)  That's the update.  I will keep my eyes and ears peeled for new and interesting posts.  I miss this, and really, this used to be a pretty cool blog. We can make is awesome again! :)

Wow! It's Been a Long Time!

Hey guys!  Sorry that it's taken so long to post anything new.  My job demanded a lot of my time, and when I was home, I wanted to be with my family instead of blogging. Anyway, I don't have that job anymore, and I now have a ton of time to blog as much as I want! YAY!  Anyway, what do you want to talk about? :)
