Ultimate Blog Part 2010 - Yes, We're Enjoying Our Lives!
I think this is my third year participating in the Ultimate Blog Party. Wow! And what a year it has been!
Our lives are very different for our family of three.
My husband and I last year, bowling at the New Orleans Hotel and Casino
After six months of unemployed I finally found a full time work at home for a national telecommunication company. I was also fortunate that the position offered full benefits. Dentist here we come!
My husband, who I used to work with, is currently waiting for word from CVS on a part time job. He also plans on returning to community college in the fall for his pharmacy technician certificate.
Our teen, enjoying his favorite past times, in our former apartment
We have an 18 year old son, Marcus, who is graduating in June from his distance learning high school. He's our Little One! And we're extremely proud of our son.
In February, he started working part time as a counselor for one of the recreation centers he was volunteering at. He's plans are to join the military but in the meantime, he's offered to help me support the household while my husband returns to school.
The current states of a rough and declining economy in Las Vegas, dealing with unemployment, underemployment, social services, being part of the working poor, faith, humor, and my severe chronic pain while still finding those bright moments that we call "enjoying your life"! are common topics in my blog.
If you're new, please feel free to look around! Yes, you can still enjoy your life even when life punches you in the face, you get up and see that all the stuff is gone and you have to start over again.
For those of you haven't stopped by for a visit in awhile, the jobs, the car, Toby, the Wonder Dog, lots of furniture, the wedding rings are all gone but we're still here and a family!
Items I would love to win are US12,US20,US37,US38,US49,US74-75,and US 91!
