It’s come to that time in my life that I’ve been dreading, but, waiting for with excitement! Next year, my daughter will be driving! Her father and I have started to discuss getting her a car. We are making the decision to get her one that will (hopefully) last her six to eight years. This will get her through college and started in her profession. We figure the car will be a minimum of nine years old and preferably with less than 90k miles on it. I was even looking at SUVs, because we live out in the country, and figured she should have all wheel drive for bad weather, but, her father suggested against that due to less gas mileage and more expensive to upkeep. Good reasons of course. So, back to cars we go!

I was recently speaking with a friend of mine who has health issues for certain reasons. One of them being her job. And it made me realize, this is a common thing anymore. Women are so stressed at work for either trying to keep up with home, kids and work. We try to prove we can do the job just as well as a man. Or, we are trying to make up for the fact that we are women.
Is your teen staying up until three or four in the morning? Sleeping until well after noon? Then, staying in bed until just before you get home from work? Is this normal and I just don’t remember it??? My kiddo does that and it drives me nuts! Whether she’s at her dad’s or at my house, she is up all hours of the night. Her father and I finally put our foot down and told her she needs to be in bed, everything shut down by 1:30am and up by 10:30am.
Raising an independently thinking child can be a blessing and a curse. You want your child to know that they can do anything they put their minds to, but, at the same time, your parenting instinct is to hold said child close and never let go!
There are days that I would love to just pack it up and leave it all behind me. Find a fresh start somewhere else. I believe this to be one of the side effects of several conditions.
Job – I am definitely not where I feel I should be career wise. I love most of the people I work with. We all have one, two or heck, three co-workers or managers we don’t get along with. But, with my Degree in Organizational Management, I feel that I am underemployed with skill sets. When you feel you aren’t meeting your standards, it’s hard to want to continue at your position.
