Alright I know my Christmas stuff is still up!!!! I have been so busy that I haven't had to time to post obviously. Thank you everyone for your emails kind thoughts and prayers. I have been working between 50-70 hours a week and trying to spend time with my kids and keep up on my house. UGGHHH!!!!! It is truly difficult being a single parent. The new apartment is awesome. YES I have some pics just not with me. Of course right!!!! LOL I am at work finishing up a 32 hour day. As you can imagine no time to create anything. All my fabric stash is stored in my garage that I can't get to right now. Yes I can finally park in my garage after only about 2 weeks. LOL. Yes say it I have a bunch of junk!!!!

OK... now on to me. I am still peeing blood (Yes graphic words I know.) The doctor can not figure out what is going on. I have had 2 scopes and need to have another CT scan done in my spare time. Do these doctors think that money grows on trees? Yes I have insurance, but it doesn't cover everything. So as you can imagine I am growing impatient. The new job is just that a job. I got my first paycheck yesterday and it is already spent. I am still not receiving any child support as of yet. The attorney is working on it. I am waiting for my ex to turn in all of his income verification. I have been out on several dates, but nothing serious. I enjoy the company, but just don't have the time to have a relationship with anyone.

My kids are doing great in school. They both brought home all As and Bs. I am so proud of them holding things together through all of this. My DD is working in the concession stand to earn money towards her Washington DC trip so that I don't have to come up with a bunch of money. She is also learning to count money and social skills as well. This is a huge blessing due to her Asperger's and learning disabilities. My son is ornery as ever. LOL. UGGHHH!!!! What will I ever do with him. He is just like his Mother. Both kids have met new friends in the neighborhood to keep them busy. They are much closer to town and sidewalks to ride their bikes on. They keep telling me how much they like our new house. This is a huge relief.

Let's see what else is going on... hmmmm..... yes I have smoke coming from my brain as I am having a hard time concentrating. LOL. I will post pictures soon of my new place. Maybe tomorrow I am suppose to go to lunch with someone, but I don't think I really want to go. I am tired and need to get my laundry done and house cleaned before I go back to work Monday. I will also try to take down all my Christmas backgrounds too.

I will be praying that they will find the cause of the blood...and that it can be treated and taken care of!
Sounds like you are doing really good, and that is a relief to hear!
Take it easy and try to get some rest on your days off!

I am glad to hear that things are falling in place for you. But you sure are putting alot of hours in work. Make sure you take time to rest.

Hopefully the Dr's will find what is wrong with you real soon.

Take care of yourself and can't wait to see some pictures of your new place.

Hi Mary ~ so happy to hear things are good. I hope they can find out what's going on..medically speaking! I say the same doesn't pay for everything and I've been putting off going to the doctor for that same reason!

Take care and hugz...can't wait to see pics!

Hi Mary,
Hope you are doing well. I just read that certain medicines can cause bleeding. Might be something to look into.
