Apparently I'm British...

Our lives are so full of surprises...and apparently learning that your British is one of them.

Last night Hubby and I were hanging out watching tv and he leans over and says "Oh yeah, this guy at work asked me if you were British." Wha???  Only if I'm reinacting Britney Spears am I British!!! Not that being British wouldn't be cool.  I'm totally down with fish n chips and red telephone booths and all. But, what tha?!?!

So I asked him why in the world would he ask him that question.  He said apparently at his last year's company Christmas party the guy's wife heard me talk and thought I was talking with a British accent. I HAD to ask how much the lady had to drink.  I mean, I am a good ol' southern gal, with a good ol' southern accent, sweet as molasses. ;)

Speaking of...I have had so many people talk about my ACCENT who live here, but are not from here. Never, have I been accused of a British one, however.  Haha!!!!  I do HAVE an accent if I'm visiting elsewhere, but when you are in my neck of the woods, you are the one with the accent.  Just sayin'.

It's been a real long time...

How to begin.  I honestly don't even know.  I can't believe that I left my Blog, my digital baby....neglected!!!

Blogging is something that I really enjoy.  I love to express myself through writing and sharing what's going on in my life, my children's lives.  I love to provide an overall day to day fun place to visit and let you, the readers, unwind and perhaps have a laugh or two, or three on me. ;) It's also a place where I like to vent, or even shed some light on some not so humorous events.

I have so much to catch you up on it will be totally impossible to do in one post, for sure.  For starters, My little Itty Bitty is not so Itty Bitty anymore.  She will be four years old this January.  The "Middlest" aka Lulee is now seven and our oldest, Sadie Bug, is 18, in college and has a full time job, which leads me to my next job.

I started this blog as a SAHM and stayed at home with the girls for 7 years.  I then sought out a job and believe it or not, found one within two weeks of my search.  I started work at a mortgage company as a Staff Accountant.  I worked there for a year and ended up getting laid off with quite a few others. The job was great.  I loved what I did and met a whole lot of great people.  Of course I missed my girls, but the hours allowed me to still be able to spend the max amount of time with them. 

Toward the end of my job I started back to school.  My first semester I took four classes...FOUR!!!  I was working a full time job, was a full time student, while continuing to manage my Prolife page on Facebook, but first and foremost a full time Mommy.  The amount of classes I was taking literally about drove me to the brink of insanity and I am close enough I can walk...Ha!!! However, it was a major accomplishment seeing how I ended up making two "A"s and two "B"s...Whew!!!

One good and sweet thing about starting back when I did was that my daughter and  I are going to the same school and we had a class at the same time.  NO not the same class. I'm not one of THOSE freaky Moms. But, she was such a sweetheart, we met in the student center every week before our class to spend one on one time together and I will always cherish those moments with her.

Any who, moving on to more of the non-sappy talk, I am currently still unemployed since the beginning of August and boy have I been looking.  I've had a couple of interviews.  I never knew it would be this hard to find a J-O-B.  I assumed that it would be just as easy as it was this past time to get one.  I am also still in school, scheduled to graduate in May 2014, God willing. 

Well, that's a good start for now...signing off before I decide to write a book. Here's hoping to write more and more...Cheers!!!
