So this is where my new home is. I am used to Blogger by now. I find it better than AOL journals. Decorating is easier, putting pictures where I want is easier. You can search for hemes and find some great ones and it is not hard to put them here.
I have been away for awhile. My life was falling apart before me eyes. I felt out of control and for the first time writing in my blog was no help.
Pat and I have managed to get our lives together. It has been a struggle but I feel it was worth it. My daughter and I are speaking again but there is no family gatherings planned anytime soon. Pat and Candiac may never heal their riff. Brook has been coming down some. It is a joy to have her.
Brook is growing up and things happening that I feared would. She is growing up in ways I never wanted for her. She is being exposed to elements that are not good influences. She is acting out and rebelling, being defiance and getting into a few fights. Her schoolwork has suffered. Things may change soon.
Candiac was notified last week that she will only be working 2 maybe 3 days a week. Today she was told that her boss may be filing bankruptcy. The week before that her husband was cut to 30 hours a week and then Monday last week he was laid off. He has been told that he may not receive any unemployment benefits as the state is out of money to pay any. they will be competing for the few jobs that are hiding out there with the hundreds of plant workers that have been laid off in the past few weeks. Mickie D's and Wal-mart are not even hiring. Johnny may go back to Dallas where there is supposed to be jobs. Candiac may go to her friend's house and I suppose join Johnny in Dallas in the future. Brook will come to live with me at least until school is out. I sincerely hope that she can stay forever!
So that is what is happening for now. I will write more tomorrow and catch up some more on everything.
I do hope that everyone decides to come over to blogger or somewhere else. Please leave me your link.
