It still amazes me how time flies by. It doesn't seem possible that it has been over a month since my AMAZING vacation with my family and friends. It also doesn't seem possible that so much has happened since then.
First I finally opened my store in Granger as the RGM. All is going well with that, but I am exhausted from all the extra hours I have been putting in. Fortunately though, it is going so well, that my Area Coach told me not to work so many hours. (YEAH!!) I have a couple great managers and a few awesome employees. Some of them need a little work, but that is just part of my job.
I also got a new car. After over a month of putting about 20 dollars of gas in the car, the brakes not working well, and a bottle of power steering fluid a day in the stupid thing, I FINALLY decided to get a new one. It took a little work to get a loan, since I am still working on cleaning up my credit. Thanks to my AWESOME friend Becca co-signing on my 2009 HHR, I am officially feeling safe driving to work again.
Speaking of Becca, she is moving in as we speak. So for the first time since college I will have a room mate. It will be interesting, since Christina and Logan will have to share a room again, but we will make it work. I will be able to feel more comfortable with paying bills, and get up on my feet again. Not that I don't feel like I am getting back on my feet already, but It will help me feel even better about it all.
Other than that, I went camping with my awesome group of friends. I had so much fun and so did the kids! It was the first camping trip I have been on with either of my kids because My husband never wanted to go camping, even though it is one of my daughter's favorite things to do during the summer. Fortunately, she has always had two awesome sets of grandparents that have taken her camping during the summers. It was so nice though to get to share that experience with them. We are hoping to all do it again a couple of times this summer.
Oh yeah, May 12th was Chad and I's 9th wedding anniversary. It was kinda bittersweet. Part of me was sad, because I kept thinking about how I had failed. Failed my marriage and my kids. I can't help but feeling that way because to me, marriage was meant to be forever. The words to the song sang by Clint Black and his wife, say it the best. "When I said I do, I meant that I will, Till the end of all time..." But I have no control over that since I never wanted the divorce in the beginning. So, to fight off the blah's, I invited my awesome friends over for dinner with me and my kids. We played games and had an awesome time.
So all this has happened since May 1st. I am feeling great about my job and my kids. Over all, just great about life. The days that I am happy and content with my life way out number the ones that I don't. That is an awesome feeling. I'm back, and better than ever.
