Where 2 Start?

#1 - Hi! I tried to post twice yesterday and blogger (or my computer) crashed, so I decided that it wasn't meant to be!

#2 - DH is home and it has been wonderful :) Pictures to follow soon on Flickr!

#3 - We have made a lot of important decisions in the last 72 hours . . .


- I am not going to look for jobs out of the Houston area (reasons to be discussed later when I have more time)
- With this decision being made, we bought a new house (Lennar Inventory Home that we love) and will be closing on it within the next two weeks (no we are not on drugs, this was just too perfect to pass up! Will discuss in detail . . . later)

#4 - Work has been busy, home has been busier, and blogging was paused. I have been trying to read all of you while I pump at work (yes, go ahead, LOL at that visualization), but it is hard to comment!

#5 - Did I mention I am getting a new house - OMG - I AM SOOOOOOO HAPPY!

#6 - Did I mention DH is home? Wink!!!!!!!!!!!!

#7 - Today at work (remember: H.S. Teacher) one of my kiddos gave me some of his writings to read. It was very personal and a "cry for help". I have been dealing with the counselors all day and been worried sick about this student. I hope he is okay - the writings discussed abuse, thinking they would be better without him, taking pills, cutting his wrists, etc. - I am worried. Who wouldn't be?

#8 - I need a drink!

#9 - Here is a
song that really made me think yesterday.

#10 - Lately, I have been thinking of a new "theme" b/c this summer I am going to do some renovation to my blog with the template, name, etc. Since, many of my family members are reading and writing in the "blog-o-sphere", I figured it might be time for my true identity to become less obvious. Many of them know I am AL and I don't want the whole world reading here - I need an outlet and a place to "Keep It Real". I know many of you can relate!

Hopefully, I will be on tomorrow for WBW . . . until then - have a great one! Oh, yeah - I LOVE COMMENTS and need a pick-me-up today :)

I think you should call yourself Monika. How about Monika's Bitchin' Blog??

I had a few students who I was worried about too. I tried to help but to no avail. Administration didn't really help at all.

I love a new house! Details please . .

Congratulations on the new house! So, why are you not going to look for jobs in the Houston area? Hmmm. I'm so curious. Do you think there's another little one on the way?! Hmm? :)

And, yes, I can relate to needing this little space to vent.

Take care. Talk to you later.

Wow I have not been keeping up either and you have some exciting things happening in a short time and some not so exciting things.

I hope that you can help that poor kid. I have a friend who writes her thoughts down and sometimes you really wonder why she dont get help, but at 35 I guess that is just her way to vent.

Hazel Hazel said...

Wowie. I'm so happy for you for so many reasons! Hang in there with the tough stuff...it will work out for the best.

Vajana said...

I have no relatives in the blogworld...thank goodness, I need somewhere to go to vent!

Kudos to you on the student. I used to be a drug counselor and the apathy from some teachers would ASTOUND me...

Fantastagirl said...

Time to introduce you to the BWPP...

Congrats on all the great things going on in your life...

Hope the kid gets the help he needs...(I'm sure no one will thank you for helping hiim - so THANKS and KUDOS to you for seeing it and doing something.)
