A Mother's Rant: November 2010

Tuesday, November 30, 2010


It is November 30th and I am already a little panicked by Christmas.
I need to get packages mailed to Japan. I need to decorate the house. I need to go shopping for the family in Utah, and then mail it to Utah.
I do have all of the shopping done for the kids in Japan and I plan on mailing things on Friday, but I still need to wrap and find a box for all of it.
I also ordered Richard's present last night. I hope he doesn't look too closely to the credit card this time of year. I can't do debit card online.
After going to Toys R Us today, I think I will stick to online.
I am excited for Christmas, in spite of the fact that only Loradona will be home. I will miss the rest of my kids.
Love to you all.

And a year goes by

It has been nearly a year since I wrote in this blog. My guess is that everyone has quit checking and this will go into the great black hole known as the World Wide Web. Well, whatever, here goes.
It has been an eventful year. Some good, some not so good.
Not so good:
  • Loradona lost her job, because her boss is an a** h***. I'm not usually a swearer, but that is just the truth, there is no other way to say it.
  • I no longer have a steady job, back to subbing. Nothing really underhanded or anything, just no job
  • We went to Japan last December and into January. It was loads of fun and I got to see and cuddle my beautiful granddaughter. I can't believe how beautiful she is and how much fun she is.
  • Loradona moved in with us. In spite of her job loss, she is generally up beat and it is fun to have her around.
  • I have been doing a lot of subbing, in a variety of spots. Tomorrow I even get to do secretary work.
  • We were able to buy a new car in June. It is nice to have two cars that are reliable.
All and all things are going well. I still pray that Loradona will get a job. I know that Heavenly Father has something in mind for her.
I also pray for Clifford, especially right now. North Korea is being aggressive to South Korea (bombed an island with civilians on it), so Clifford and his group are going to show support to S. Korea.
Love to you all.
