No change yet...

Well I've been asked by a few people if I have changed my blog to private yet (and left them off the approval - the answer is NO I haven't done anything. Mainly because I've been working so much I just haven't had the time to even bother with posting anything.

I have plenty of time today as I sit in airports all day so I thought I would just take some time and update this ole blog here.

I have been working a lot doing my merchandising I started last year. I really do love it and I've enjoyed the extra money coming in. We are not living paycheck to paycheck anymore and we've been able to afford trips and some extras lately. My job is very flexible in that I can choose the jobs I want to do and work 1-2 twelve-fourteen hour days a week instead of 5 days a week (if I so choose.) I generally try to limit my work days to 3 lonnnngggg days a week.

Because of the flexibility of my schedule AND the extra money I am currently in the Houston airport waiting for my flight to Seattle and then on to Honolulu again! My daughter Felicia who lives in Hawaii called me yesterday morning and said she thought she had broken her foot and she was waiting for a friend to come get her and take her to the hospital. It's her right foot (driving foot.) She called me back later to confirm that her foot was indeed broken and she gets to wear this lovely boot for 6 weeks.
As soon as I told Greg what happened, he said "you need to go help her...let me find you a flight." I tried being "reasonable" and said "we can't afford it, I have to work, what about Dakota..." to which my darling husband said "Elisa! How is Felicia going to drive the boys to school, carry Shawn around and do what she needs to do while on crutches!?" He was right, but as a mom/working mom I'm dealing with guilt over just dropping everything and heading to Hawaii...even though my ADULT daughter does need me. Her hubby is on a ship far, far away and she has 3 rowdy boys (including this little angel below) to deal with.
Oh boy oh boy...I'll be pinching this little angel's sweet cheeks this evening!! So, after much encouragement from my dear husband and after working out a few kinks in my working schedule...I boarded a plane this morning at 6:00 heading to Hawaii! When I left Pensacola, it was overcast/cloudy. We ascended above the clouds and this was my beautiful!

The sun was shining and there was a layer of clouds below me as far as I could see...and NO clouds above me!
This is my darling Felicia and her new attachments for the next few weeks....

I have made a decision, after MUCH consideration and thought and it deals with this blog. I have not written much on this blog in the latter part of 2009 because I got tired of things I wrote being thrown back in my face by certain family members. I feel like this is MY blog, MY thoughts and MY life and what my husband and I choose to do with our life is our business...nobody else's.

I've missed blogging and connecting with friends through blogging so my decision is I am setting my blog to private. I will be doing this sometime in the next week and I'll send you an invite if I want you to read my blog - you can either accept it or not - you won't hurt my feelings one way or another. This blog is for me and unfortunately I am unable to share my experiences with others due to restrictions from certain people...and frankly I'm downright sick of it.

I hope and pray you all are having a great start to your New Year! God bless you!
