 It has been a very long time since I posted here. Not sure why really. My life has been a roller coaster ride to say the least. Working long hours and trying to spend time with family and friends is difficult. I seems to only have time for a quick Facebook or Myspace one line update on what I am doing. 

Since my last post, my oldest son David joined the Marines. That was a life changing experience for me. None of my kids or grandkids have ever been very far away from me.  He is currently stationed at 29 Palms California.  Never really felt the empty nest syndrome till he left. He is not always accessible now and it bothers me more than I ever thought possible.  His daughter and wife moved to Rolla to be near her family until we find out what is happening with David's deployment. So I do not get to see them very much either.

My other son, John and his family have moved in with us. It has been good for the most part. We have had a few moments but all in all it has been good. I have been able to spend quality time with his 3 kids. 

Things with Don have not really changed with the exception that he has proven in many ways that he loves me and that for now, will have to do. My expectations of our relationship have changed and maybe that is why it is working so far. We are human and it takes concessions on all parts to coexist peacefully with each other.

Life has been stressful to say the least between the work (political) garbage, friends and family losing jobs, and the economic situation this country and world are in. Unfortunately, I feel like I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. I have my associate's in Criminal Justice but now have a student loan and no job options. I still wok in Security, hence the long hours. but I wanted a more 9-5 job on the corporate end of things. Someday, maybe.   It is scary to try to change jobs now. I am thankful that I am working. I just hate the fact that I feel like I have no choice anymore.
