I think I see the light...

These past couple of weeks have been CRAZY and in less than 24 hours it will come to an end!!!  This month has flown by and I cannot believe that April one will be here in just a few short days.  The year of 2012 was an up and down of a year and I was super happy to see it go.  I was hoping that 2013 was going to be a turn around… However with the passing of Small’s sister and my Bubby (grandmother) last month it felt like we were going to be living in the same dark shadow of 2012.  Well, we got some exciting news yesterday!!! Smalls got a new job!!! Oh we so needed this positive that I cannot contain my happiness!!! Wait a minute did I just say happiness?  I have had a hard time being “happy” lately.  It came in spurts and sputters and when it is around I soaked it up!!!

I am trying to find all of the positive through out my day and I want to share them, hell even shout them over roof tops. So instead of getting a noise violation ticket from my neighbors I thought the blog would be a good place to say it.  So what is going good for us…

-Small’s new job
-The sun shinning today
- Spring Break
-Tiger’s baseball (opening day 4/5)
-Our new teaching contract (I will be 
getting less taken out of my checks, 
which means a pay raise--sort of)

I know that none of this is life changing but I feel a weight being lifted off of my shoulders and possibly a light at the end of this tunnel!!!

Thanks for reading and I would love to hear your thoughts…



  1. life is about all the ups and downs.... cherish them all and live each day to the fullest.

  2. Hey Andi,

    I saw your comment on Bon's blog about you being new to the blogosphre, and I jumped over here to check out your posts. I'm sorry that you've been having a hard time, losing dear friends and family members. I recently lost my grandfather, and I can understand that pain. I applaud you in your decision to find the happy and joyful bits in life and to celebrate those. I've actually been writing about some similar topics on my blog, if you'd like to check it out. Over the past year or so, I've come to learn a few things about how to stay happy. Mostly it has to do with an awesome husband and finding ways to make other people cheerful. And drawing ridiculous pictures. That always helps too.

    Looking at your labels and reading a few posts, I think we have a bit in common. I'd love to be friends. :)


    PS. It took me a good while before I actually changed my name after marriage as well. And even longer for me to get an updated photo ID. That made some things, like air travel, very difficult. :)

    1. Thank you so much Natashya! I am sorry to hear about your grandfather. I am just thinking it will only make us better people to love and lose. I would love to check out your blog and and be friends : ) My fav past time is coloring pictures so send me pics and I will bring the boom to them ; )


    2. I think that you and I shall work well together. I shall compose a picture masterpiece so that you might fill it with color. Haha. :)
