Happy Mother's Day...

to me! (and you too!)
some cheese and crackers and my favorite wine~ Apothic Red.
If you like red wine, try it!
It is a blend and just so yummy!
I am totally let my 10 year old sit next to me and eat Oreo's for dinner. 
I have some Ben and Jerry's half baked froyo for later to
enjoy with my latest obsession~ Downton Abbey.
I made brunch for my mom and MIL this morning so
the afternoon and evening have been my time.
I like time better than most gifts though I would never
 turn my nose up at a little sparkle or something from Coach.
My husband tried to give me a 'present' this morning but
I told him there is no re-gifting on Mother's Day.

P.S. I am so giving my two notice tomorrow! Yippppppeeeee! This is
almost turning into a 'Friend's Don't Let Friend's Blog Bluzzed' post.
Before it does, I am out of here.

chick interrupted...

if there is anyone still out there taking the occasional gander at my blog, thank you. 
Life was has been just crazy. It has run the gamut from despair to elation and everything in between.  out of all of the crazy, has come some wonderful life changing things.  I do not think any of it would have been possible without a little Divine intervention for which I am so grateful.

Unhappiness with my job situation has turned into a new job for me. A very exciting opportunity.  My dream job (if there is such a thing when one works in the insurance industry) more money, great opportunities for learning and growth.

Illness for my dad turned into him finally being diagnosed properly for his ongoing health problems that have plagued him for the past 4 years.

Young love has transformed my 14 year old to 'boyfriend' to a nice(ish) girl.  Boy has this been a learning experience.

Dissatisfaction with our public school has prompted us to find better options for our boys though this is still much in flux.

on Monday I will give my notice to my current employer.  I am so happy to be able to put that chapter to a close though I will miss very much some good friends who have been an incredible source of support on this new journey.

we are anxiously awaiting a letter of acceptance(hopefully) for a school we have just fallen in love with for our 14 year old.

we are giddy with excitement over a chick shipment due to arrive a week from Monday. 

Life has resumed.
Life is good.
