Time flies by…

I started this blogging journey in December 2013 thinking I wouldn’t make it through a couple of months.  Here it is a year later and I’m still here.  Some months have been pretty slow posting wise, not so much life being slow.  As a family we’ve been through a lot this past year.  Dealing with the bullying of my grandson in the spring and then with finally getting the diagnosis of Autism.  He was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome but due to the changes in the DSM-V he falls under Autism now.

Had a pretty quiet summer, got the pool up and working even with dealing with a leak in a new liner.  Spent a lot of hours on the mower in the “back 40” from March through October.  One of my favorite things to do outside.  In the midst of all of this I started back to school, working on my Masters in Criminal Justice.  It has been an interesting journey from May.  Been on break with no classes since mid October but they start back next Monday, 5th.  Transferred to Nova Southeastern in FL to finish.  Pretty interesting class starting, all about Firearms and Ballistics and the other one on Forensic Science.   Looking forward to these two.

Still hanging on to my insurance license, got too much time and money invested not to keep renewing it every two years and doing the continuing education.  I am in the midst of working on my AFIS (Agriculture and Farm Insurance Specialist) designation, so I guess taking the third part of that course will be my continuing education this year, that and the Ethics class that is required.

Started by journey as a Jamberry Nail Wrap consultant in November.  Funny thing, I’d never heard of them until August of last year when a Face Book friend had a Face Book party and then became a consultant.  Wish I’d know about this company before.  Pretty new, started in 2010 and growing fast.  Check it out: http://www.eulasullivan.jamberrynails.net/ and anyone wanting info let me know.  Cool nail wraps and get paid to have pretty nails.  It’s only in the US and Canada right now.

Through all of this the last month has be trying on my health and dealing with blood pressure issues.  I am hoping that things will settle down again when school starts back next week and one of the grandkids will be back in school.  They have all been sick including the three year old.  This crazy flu and respiratory stuff is nothing to mess with.  If you are sick with this, go to the doctor, emergency room or something.  Kids are dying from it, scary crap!!

If we could keep all the vehicles around here running it would be a miracle.  Out of seven vehicles, three are down right now….OUCH  that’s a lot of $$$$’s going to be going out the door. can-stock-photo_csp7026993

This is about it for my crazy life.  Striving to increase my blogging and writing in this new year and accomplishing much more along the way.  With major home improvements looming on the near horizon it’s going to be a busy one.

  1. You have had a busy year! Congrats on the one year of blogging! That’s a great milestone.

  2. Blogging can be hard, because life always gets in the way. Hope to see you back soon.

  3. Hi Cherokee. I think this is the most appropriate and recent enough blog to respond back to you. Thanks for stopping by at my blog. That was a pleasant surprise. I know what you mean that sometimes blogging just doesn’t happen. Had the same thing. Stopped altogether, then wrote a post six months ago and only yesterday posted a new one, lol. But I certainly want to be more active again. Have two new blog articles in the making. Off to a good start I would say. 😉
    By the way. I’m also familiair with autism in the family (PDD-NOS is also a form of it), so I know all too well that others often don’t understand it. It’s best to create a thick skin, Cherokee, then to let it ruin your day!

  4. Normally it doesn’t get to me, something just hits it wrong on certain days… 🙂

  5. I get what you mean. Some days you just can’t have the patience for it.

Tell me about it
