Hello everyone,

I wanted to post once a month. I totally missed April. Sad to say nothing new to report. I've been home with a migraine the past 2 days. It seems to be easing up. Let's see still house hunting nothing yet. I did apply for a new position at work. Once again I was knocked out by someone with just a little more experience and a college degree. College plays a big part at my job. I think it's great and hope my girls finish but for me not so much. Eleni told me yesterday college is hard she may just get a job. I looked at her and said don't tell me. I told you once you graduated high school you are on your own with college. Tough love I know but this one just doesn't want to grow up. I'm guilty since Ray died I've tried to give her all I can. I am hoping she can get a summer position at my job. Once she gets that pay check I'm hoping she will want to keep getting one. Plus it will give her something to add to her resume. I just don't know what to do anymore. Going from a two parents and two pay checks to one has not been easy at all. I try to do the best I can and pray a lot.

The weather is just crazy. It feels more like Fall than Spring. I don't remember the weather being so up and down before. You just have to dress according to the weather instead of the season. Makes me curious as to what Summer will be like. I love Summer and hot temps. Anytime I can put on flip flops over shoes and socks I' happy. Families don't get together like they used to when I was younger. Makes me sad to think about the world I grew up in compared to the world today. No one place is any different than another. The whole Boston thing really made me think about things. Remember when the US was the land of opportunity. Families came here to work and make a better life for themselves. Now seems like I work so they can come here and get a better life at my expense. Makes me sad all these poor children who are in debt when they graduate because of school loans but others can come here go to school for free only to endanger those who have provided for them. Sorry I usually try to keep my opinions to myself but this just really irritates me. I hope my children never have children. The world is just too crazy anymore. 

Well, I think I covered it all. Home, work, school, and terrorist. Sorry for getting on my soap box about things but sometimes we just have to vent. I hope I haven't offended anyone with my comments. My point is some people make it hard for those who really want to do better. God Bless the U.S.A.

I totally agree with you Donna, this country is not at all what it used to be! I made a new blog post too, it is hard to keep up sometimes, sometimes i think I am done blogging then I get a boost of energy for it, lol! Eleni will find her way, sometimes it just takes a bit longer for them to decide, wish my son would have given more thought than deciding in the course of one week to join the Army, I think he has had a few regrets...especially right now with the deployment looming.

Well Donna, I agree with you! I really think college students are making a big mistake with all this debt. College is good but I think it needs to be paid as you go. And it does frustrate me that these people can come to America and get their college paid for while we struggle to send ours!

However, I do think Christians need to have children just so we can bring up good character/moral kids that love the Lord and can make a difference when we're gone. But I get where you're coming from on this world being crazy and hating it for grandkids. That part is scary!

Hope you get a job promotion, Jessica gets a summer job and you find the home you're looking for. I know it's been hard for you! I'm going to keep you in my prayers!

Love ya,
