This Lost Chick

What can I say I am a mother and a wife, trying to find my way through life. I am about to enter the big 3..0.. lets see where it takes me!

frog-897418_960_720Have you ever wanted to run away? I’m not talking about getting away for a few hours. I’m talking about packing up a few things in the middle of the night, and leaving everything behind!

I have done that a few times in my 20’s. At the time I only had one or two children when I last took off. I grabbed only what was essential, and left the rest behind! I even left my cell phone, you can always pick one up at any gas station or convenient store.

My mother calls me her “Gypsy Child”. I can pack up today, go to a state I have never been to and in 6 months time, you would have thought I have lived there all my life! That is how Well I adapt to change, when I feel the need to.

Today, I feel like running away. I am taking time off of second job, so I can spend more time with my children this summer. This weekend my girls are camping with there girl scout troop. My son, well… he is a teenager and her care about three things in life. 1 His cell phone, I really think it is glued to his hand! 2 GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!! I think that may be the reason his phone is always in hand. Every friend I have ever met of his has been a girl! I can’t say I like it one bit! 3 His Xbox. My son has talent, he can play the game, with a phone in one hand! Not really the kind of skills I am proud of but hey! My husband, he invited some friends over for the weekend. Right now they are off doing what ever it is they do!

So that leaves me here sitting on my front porch, writing a blog about running away!frog-897420_960_720


Big Move

movers-24403_960_720Just in case you can’t tell by the title….. We moved! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you know I HATE moving! I have been unpacking for the past two weeks and I swear to you, we don’t have that much stuff! Well at lease I don’t think I do! Worse yet, I still have unpacking to do! There are about 15 to 20 more boxes to unpack but I really don’t think I have it in me!

Though my children have unpacked all they can, I have to do the rest. After working all week and then some, I just don’t feel like it.

So about the house, it is a rock house. I have never lived in a rock house, I don’t think I had seen a rock house until I moved down here. Until now, all the places that I have lived brick. Another difference is bathrooms! I have found that houses in the south, no matter how many bedrooms , built before 1995 only have ONE bathroom! This house is old, 1946 old! There is no exhaust fan in the bathroom and that is getting old fast with 5 people living under one roof! The house has 4 bedrooms and on 4 or 5 acres.
