Ch Is Working Days

Since my dearest hubby has decided not to come back to blogging, any time soon. He is doing very well. I did ask Ch when he was planning on returning to blog land there was no answer, he owns another blog that family can venture to and leave comments, he has not touched that one either I have no idea what will happen if I don't post for him. There are two posts up on my blog that tells what we are going through I must warn you will, it will not be easy to read. There is so much more to post than what I have there. So much pain and tears seemed to well every time I write. Ch will be back to working night starting in July I'm not looking forward to it, what can you do. It's part of life and his job that he has to do. I'm blessed everyday to have such a wonderful husband Ch has become and every day I let him know it. In the mean time keep watching my blog for further updates.

Did I forget to mention in my previous post that I finally got that promotion?

I did?

Sorry. Well I finally got the promotion at work and it was official Last week on the 17th. That's good news #1. Good news #2 is that we got a second person to do my job. That means that the position that has been empty for 2 years is now full. The good thing about that is that I am no longer stuck on the 3:30 to midnight shift. Beginning sometime in May after the new guy is trained I will move back to the day shift for 2 months. Then we will be on a 2 month rotation. That way we will keep up to date on how to do the full aspect of the job and not just the paperwork portion. It also means that I won't be burnt out anymore and will be able to spend some much needed time with my family in the evenings.

Amazingly enough I am still alive. Surprising to hear I know but it is true. I have been pretty much gone from blogging for a month now. Haven't even been stopping by to read any since the beginning of the month. Too many things have gotten in the way lately. But here's a little secret: Not all of the reasons for my disappearance are bad. Our old computer took a dump last month so we were down to one computer. Summer needed the laptop for school so I was out of a computer for awhile. Luckily we did our taxes and got a really nice return so new bought a new one. I love it! Windows Vista isn't nearly as bad as I heard it made out to be either.

I have also refound some old past times as well in the last few weeks. I have started fishing on the weekends with the boys while Summer has been at work. We haven't had much luck but we have had fun all the same. Then at the very beginning of the month I got pretty sick and bored. So I found another favorite past time of mine. Reading. I figured that I have already watched the first three movies of Harry Potter that I didn't need to start from the4 beginning. So I started at book 4 on the 3rd of the month. I finished that book and actually liked it so then I watched the movie. Then went on to the next book and movie the following week. Long story short I finished the last book last night. Did I mention that I started to read it on Tue night? That was a record for me. First off reading 4 books in less than a month, and secondly reading a book in 3 days. There was a downside to reading these books though. i have a tendency when I get into a book to REALLY get into a book. So that was what I was spending all of my waking hours doing. Reading. I was staying up till 2 or 3 in the morning reading. I would read at work instead of working. It would just consume me. I would find myself dreaming about the book but not what I had read but what I thought would happen next. The most surprising thing about reading these four books and the amount of time it took to read them was how interested I was in them. Especially since they were, in thew beginning a kids book.

Enjoy your weekend!

As Summer said over the weekend I'm taking kind of a break. I just haven't been feeling it lately. with everything that has been going on lately I guess I've just lost the oomph so to speak. That and the fact that the home computer has taken a dump on us. So we are now sharing one computer until we can afford to by a new one. Since Summer is going to school and she needs the computer the most I haven't been online as much. things at work have made me afraid to use the computers at work as well.

The depression has hit me really hard the last week or two as well. I've had at least 4 panic attacks just this month. This is with taking the medication like I'm supposed to. I was so bad last week that when I was driving home from my moms house one night I was actually afraid to be behind the wheel. During an appointment with my therapist last week I told him that I felt like I was on the verge of a breakdown. I just don't know how much more I can take.

Post #365

Ch went on a break so I'm going to go ahead, and just post of what I know here. The rest of the details will be on my blog, as soon I get a paper out of the way for school. Once again his depression has gotten the best of him; Mom, dad and sister and sister's friend are in Hawaii celebrating both of their Annie's of being clean I think it's been about 5 yrs for both of them. His funk is caused by not having any time with us, and there is also the kiddo situation which has turned worse than ever. We are looking into getting another emergency I.E.P and possibly looking into suing the county that we live in. So in the meantime keep us in your thoughts and prayers it seems we can never have too many of those.

Thank you for your understanding

Hey out there! Do any of you still remember me? I'm CH. I know that I've been lacking lately. That might be an understatement actually. I don't know what it is but I just haven't been able to get the gumption up to post on here as of late. I'm torn. Don't know what to do. Don't know what would make me happier. I've thought a lot recently about shutting down. Then every time I think that I also think that it would be a waste to do so.I have 3 years of my life documented here. I don't want to just give up on it. I'll probably just not post as often. Who knows.

So anyways not much has been going on here in the last few weeks since I last posted. I've been making cookies for Christmas again. I'm on my fifth double batch so far. Still have at least 2-3 more double batches to go. As usual I'm going over board on the cookies again. But we go through a lot. 2 Christmas parties, give some away to our neighbors on Christmas day, then there is the ones we'll take to my parents on Christmas day. So we go through a lot too. It's not like I eat them all to myself. That gets saved for the Cordial Cherries. Those are all MINE!

Hunting has been pretty slow lately. I haven't had many opportunities to go. Although 2 weeks ago I got the chance to go on the best pheasant hunt of my life. It was truly amazing. It was like watching a show on the Outdoor Chanel that was taped in South Dakota. Truly a once in a lifetime hunt for someone from Ca.

Jr. has been keeping us busy with his 4H stuff. He is showing a goat this year. Plus the chili cook off that he has signed up for next month. He's also signed up for the rocketry club as well. So we're pretty busy with that.

Youngest is doing alright. At least he is when I'm around. School has been pretty good for him. Home has been getting a little better. At least we are moving ahead in the right direction.

Summer has started babysitting to make some extra money. She's also going back to school starting next week. I think that she has pretty much given up on massage. She did give it a fair try though. We just need more income coming in. Half of her check is going into the gas tank now. Plus her employer has stopped paying standby time. So if she is not giving massages she's not getting paid. They are really slow lately too so sometimes she's there for 6 hours and only does 1 massage. That's a lot of time to be sitting around and not be getting paid.

As for me my schedule/shift has started taking it's toll on me. Right now I'm just hoping that we can get a second lead worker on the crew. Soon. I love the work aspect of the shift still, but I'm getting tired of not seeing the family. I get to see the kids for about 20 minutes in the morning and half an hour for dinner. Summer and I see each other at dinner and thats about it. Unless she comes home from work early. Which isn't often. Plus she works on my days off and I work on hers. We get to a point where we are doing really well together and we can't see each other. So here's to hoping we get a second lead so that I can go back to days. Or at the very least go on a rotating shift which is what my boss wants. If we get two leads he wants to rotate us every two months so we get the experience of the whole job. not just one part. Right now I'm great at the paperwork aspect. But when it comes to the maintenance aspect I suck. I don't deal with that on my shift.

I am taking some time off soon though so that's going to be nice. SR is going to be taking some time off as well at the same time so we can spend time together. I'm working day shift on the 23rd and 24th so I can attend the work Christmas party. Then I don't go back to work until the 2nd of Jan. I'll be off for 8 days and only use 4 days of vacation. Gotta know how to work the system. :D

Hopefully I'll be back in a week or so. We'll see.

Do I look mad?

I really need to do something about all the gray hairs in my beard.

For some reason my youngest thinks I look mad in this photo. How can I be mad? I'm out duck hunting! Life don't get better than that. Well unless you wake up to an amazingly sexy wife the next day that is feeling kinda amorous. :D
