Sunday Sunset

You Are Sunset Even though you still may be young, you already feel like you've accomplished a lot in life.
And you feel free to pave your own path now, and you're not even sure where it will take you.
Maybe you'll pursue higher education in a subject you enjoy - or travel the world for a few years.
Either way, you approach life with a relaxed, open attitude. And that will take you far!


Yes, this sounds nice.  Kind of makes me sound like an aspiring, college bound student!  HA!  Coulda, shoulda woulda...

Actually, to become certified in my position, I did have to take a few courses.  At this point in my life, my children keep me far to busy outside of work to further my career, which is and always has been fine by me.  I'm going to be 37 this year, which according to my kids is old, but I know that at some point, if I wished to go further for the sake of a better financial situation, I could.  Down the road when they are off doing their own thing and I've stopped worrying about them all the time.  Does that ever happen?  For right now though, I am quite content with where I'm at, even if I don't sound it sometimes, and don't feel it sometimes, once the sun sets over the hills, and we are all safe and well, I know what is important.  Even if they don't, and he doesn't... I do.  They will eventually, when they are grown.  He, being grown already (much older than ME even! lol) but coming from a life so very different than this, is all set in his ways.  It's gotten better over the years, but many things will always be the way they are.  I've grown accustomed, and willfully accepting of certain aspects of our marriage.  It's just different, in many ways.  But it's not bad.  It's not abusive.  Sad sometimes, but not at all horrible like so many others.  Wow...where did this all come from?!?  Dang, I do stir it up once I get in here...

We are heading back to school/work tomorrow.  We had a rather uneventful, relaxing week.  Not to many knockdowns between the girls.  We did a little of this and that, getting the soil ready out back to plant later on.  We took a day trip and visited Gramps on Friday.  While there I took them down back fishing it the river.  Tickville, I call it now.  Only one showed itself on the way home.  I had to pull over due to high power screams and kicks.  That was fun. 

I started as Cherub Choir director for our church today.  It's for kiddos age 3 to 3rd grade.  Finally got Mailee to participate and she actually enjoyed herself.  Amanda helped to, running the CD player.  We found a simple but fun tune on one of our CD's that has the vocals as well as just the intrumental, so it works out nicely.  About 10 kids came, so I had a lot of fun with them. 

Well, I better get moving and start my chicken wings.  I hope the sun comes back soon.  The warm weather we had before really spoiled us!  The sweaters came back out!!  Hope you are all well.

hey Michelle! have a good week back at school...hopefully this rain will end soon and we can get back to the springtime!
It is so hard to put ourselves, our wants, our needs before anyone else's; isn't it?  I guess that is what being the "Mom" is all about.  and I wonder if we will ever stop worrying about our kids; like even when they are grown & out of the house...will we ever NOT worry?? Somehow I think our "worry free" days are over!
have a good week!

Tell them your "ancient" on-line buddy (41) says "hello"...hehe.  Don't think "shoulda, woulda, coulda", hon.  Unless, you've decided not to try.  I head back to college this fall.  I left willingly years ago, so that Capn' could start his own company. ;)  C.

I think no matter how old we are that LIVING IS LEARNING.  There's always MORE to learn on the computer, instruments to learn to play, activities to learn and share with your children, better ways to cook chicken . . .   I think we keep right on learning all the time because things keep changing . . .  and it keeps us SHARP!

LOVE the sunset!!!

Hope you're having a good week.
