Happy Birthday!

so, it was my birthday yesterday. my mother posted this picture on her Facebook, so I stole it. I think I was about 4 in the picture with a baby, because that was one of our foster babies, maybe 6 or 7 in the brownie uniform, and 19 in the last one.

I can't say this past year has been a good one. so I won't. It has had a few highlights. I have met some amazing people online and irl who have made a huge impact on my life. I got to see my favorite bands in concert finally.

I have no idea what this next year will bring. I have mostly given up on making any sort of plans because I am tired of watching my dreams fall apart. For now, I am just living day to day because that is about all I can handle.

Today I went to renew my driver's license and took the 8 yr renewal option, and I had to stop and wonder what I will be doing in 8 years? The twins will be 16, the girl will be 19 and the boy will be 21. That's a scary thought.

I did have a decent sort of day for my actual birthday. I called out of my morning job since I knew I wasn't really needed. My dad took me to lunch at a thai/vietnamese place. Then I worked. It was a really slow night, but it was still a nice evening. Then I stopped by Waffle House for some hashbrowns and bacon. The kids were with their dad, but the girl left me a cute voicemail while I was at work and so i called them as soon as I could. I picked them up on my way home from work today so we are going to have cake tonight.

I know in the past I talked about making a sort of bucket list, but I never did. I think I need to make a 40 before 40 for this year, any ideas anyone?

I just realized I haven't updated the situation with splitcat's mom. She was able to go home last Sunday and as far as I know is doing okay.

It's been a a busy week here as I started my new job and have to take the kids with me to the preschool in the mornings, so everyone has been a bit out of sorts. The girl had a wonderful time on her vacation and I think it took her a few days to get used to not having ice cream every night and eating out all the time.

So, I have two jobs now. still working at the preschool and working nights and weekends at a women's dress shop. I've just worked two days, but I think I will like it as much as it is possible to enjoy working in retail. The people are nice and its a nice shop. It's strange to be working somewhere without children everywhere.

Home early

I had to cut my vacation short. Splitcat's mom, who was vacationing with the girl and others in south florida became ill and is currently in the hospital. Splitcat and his sister are driving down today to see their mom and pick up the girl. I drove home yesterday afternoon and am about to go get the boys. Please pray for her and them.
