Moving on .

I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.

Thursday Thirteen.

13 things I find hard to do.

1. Teaching. Getting material together for a two hour course and a one hour on line is gonna kill me before the end of the semester. (but I am enjoying it so far)

2. Managing people. Being fair and getting the work done don't always jive.

3. Being nice to an ex spouse. Getting things done on behalf of the girls means I sometimes have to be nice when I'd rather chew glass.

4. Being tough on the Rebel after everything she's been through. However she doesn't always make matters easy for herself.

5. Excel spreadsheets.

6. Fixing the glitches that come up on the laptop. I love my tech support guys at work and wish I could have one at home with me. I'd even feed him. But see #10.

7. Making time in the day to do everything I want.

8. Staying off FACEBOOK - See no. 7

9. Cake Mania 3 on my DS. I think it's because the images are too small and I can't see the cakes in order to make them. See no.7

10. Cooking beef. still. Though the Crock Pot is getting some good work outs lately and no is complaining.... much.

11. Going to the gym. See comment above on chewing glass.

12. Stopping while ice skating. I have to hit the boards if I am in an arena or just kind of glide til I stop. I really would like to stop like a hockey player with that powerful swoosh and a bit of ice flying through the air.

13. Getting the blog updated. Which is why I appreciate sharing the keys with a friend. THANK YOU!

Excellent that in spite of your difficulties you are enjoying teaching.

Being nice to the exspouse is just annoying. I am happy that I no longer have to deal with mine.

I can only imagine how hard it is for you to be tough on Miss Rebel. Good that you are doing so regardless.

I still don't quite get the whole FB thing. My daughter told me the other day that she and some of her friends were discussing how life was easier before parents were on FB. For the record, I am not her friend there but am in real life. tee hee!

I am sure that your friend doesn't mind at all getting your blog up and running when you can't manage to do so. ;-)

love, hugs and happy Thursday 13,
