Warming of a New House

Here I am sitting at work, bored out of my mind. It has been crazy here and our census has been unusually high the past few weeks, but not tonight. I have cleaned and straightened and filed everything I can get my hands on. So blogging it is to pass some time away. Tomorrow is Danny and I's house warming party that his mom and sister are having for us. I am excited to show off our new home. We have been working non-stop to get it unpacked and situated. We have only been in for 2 weeks, so we have really been busting our buns to get things done. In light of that we are both exhausted, I can't get enough sleep and I'm always tired. I am blaming this on working night shift and not getting adequate sleep during the day.
There is a day shift position possibly coming available and I am seriously considering it. The hours would be so much better for my family, I would see the kids more and I would be home every night. But the thought of getting up at 4am to go to work makes me want to vomit. Ugh! So who knows what I will end up doing.
Emma has started behaving a little differently lately. She has been acting afraid of things that she normally isn't afraid of. I'm pretty sure that Brian has let her watch things that he shouldn't be. For example we were in the car on the way to my dads the other night and Emma said "Mommy, Michael Myers scared me and he lives in a scary house". Ok, question, how would a 4 year old know who Michael Myers is? Answer, that is her dads favorite movie. I asked him about it and of course he swears he didn't let her watch it. Yeah right. Well I think I've said enough for tonight, back to work I go.

Rookie blogger

So, I have been wanting to start a blog for sometime now. I follow a few of my close friends through blogs and I quite enjoy reading about what is going on in their lives. I'm a little nervous as to who will be reading and I'm a little conscious of my writing skills, but we will see how it goes.

So here goes a little update on my life and its current chaos. Danny and I just moved to a new house in Mount Orab. I was very skeptical about moving to another town, for more than one reason. One- change is just hard period. Two- Josh would have to change schools, thus making this his 3rd school and he is only in 2nd grade. It turns out that it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. Josh had zero anxiety about changing schools. He went skipping into his first day at Mt. Orab Elementary with no worries. That was a huge load off. I ABOSLUTELY fell in love with our house which in turn made the change just plain exciting. I am still a little nervous about the financial part of it because it is way more than I have ever paid for a house. But Danny makes really good money (not bragging) and what I make isn't terrible, so it will take some money management skills but we should be just fine.

Emma just had her 4th birthday on October 26th, and she was quite the little princess. She was so friendly and happy and excited at her party. Those of you who know Emma might sound surprised about the friendly part, I myself have been. As each day passes and we settle more and more, she is finally coming out of her shell. This makes me so happy and relieved. Josh is such an outgoing, carefree, friendly kid. I know all kids are different and it still amazes me how different they are, but little Emma Grace is showing us all a new color.

I can't say enough how grateful I am to have such a wonderful man in my life now. I am so proud of him and how hard he works. It's hard for me to look back and see all the hurt, and unhappiness I put up with for all those years with Brian. I still can't see why I married him. (Sis claimed the "I told you so") I like to say I learned my lesson. I will never let anyone put me down like that again and I will never live unhappy again. I have found my happiness and I pray that it never leaves me.

I hope I have not bored you to death with this rambling, remember I'm new to this. I have to say that putting this down in writing felt quite good. I hope to keep this up. Stay turned for more to come.
