Wow! I feel like so much has been going on lately! But I've come to a point where I feel like I need to take charge of my life because life is running me over!!!! After visiting my family, well, I just kind of felt like somewhere along the way in my life I took a wrong turn! Have you ever been going somewhere using a navigation system and when you take a wrong turn the system tells you "recalculating route"? Well, I feel like my inner navigator is saying over and over again, "recalculating route."

I'm pretty happy with where I am currently working. It's not perfect but I like what I do and well, I'm thankful to have a job at all! Especially since 3 days in a row there were articles in our local newspaper about companies in the area doing major layoffs!

My poor car is still dead. Dad just hasn't had the time to look at it. But I'm fortunate that I've been able to use my mom's car as she is out of town till the end of June! I had already decided that I needed to purchase a new (or previously owned) car this summer so now it's just bumped up a little bit earlier! So now my decision is do I go practical and get a Toyota or do I get something fun like a Mustang? Honestly, it'll come down to what my insurance payment will be! LOL!

Living arrangements. I have been in my current apartment for almost 4 years. I would like to move to a bigger place. One with lots of storage! Well, one decision I've made is to start looking for a home to purchase. I think I am ready to have something of my own. So I've begun to start looking at some properties. I'm just not sure if I want a cute condo/townhouse or an actual home with a yard so Duke can play! Of course, price will be a big consideration and I'm kind of picky about what area I want to live in.

Love life. well, basically, there is none! LOL! Things have gotten to a point where my sailor and I have grown apart. I don't think we can get back to where we were as the distance is just too much for us to overcome and well, I'm not going to move to be with him since he is probably going to be transferred again in a year and with the state of the economy, well, I need to keep my job. I have signed up for Eharmony so maybe I will have some stories to share with ya'll. Hopefully funny stories and not nightmares! Yikes!

I'm happy that it is summer time! I'm looking forward to hopefully some road trips to the beach in Mississippi. Next month I do have a trip to Ft. Walton Beach scheduled for work but luckily I have tons of free time so I will be enjoying the sand and surf!!!! Then in August I like to make it to Gulf Shores. There is also many weekends that will be spent by the pool!

So while I have much sadness, I'm hoping that with a plan laid out, that I will get through it!

Change can be a great thing! Congrats on the decision to buy a home and I pray that you are able to find one that will be just perfect for you soon!

Sounds like you know exactly what you want to happen in the near future, I'm a great believer of the saying 'what is for you won't go past you'. It's a phrase I have come to use often when the world seems to have turned against my family and I.

I sincerely hope you achieve each and every one of your goals.
