This is just an outlet for me, to be able to get my thoughts out! I am a Woman, Wife and Mommy that also works outside the home! Just me trying to make it all work for the best for my family and myself! Just my journey!

I have been in a training class for a few days, ooooooooohhhhhhh how nice it has been to work days, I feel like a human!!!! Anyway, the training I have received has me excited and looking forward to CHANGE and more efficiency on our service track. I am a little apprehensive about the "roll out" and how it will be received, but if executed properly and with every supervisor on board, it can be an amazing change. My boss asked me to help with this process, (and have I told you I love to learn and take classes and training?) I happily accepted the opportunity, looking forward to good change! I so hope this really works and I hope it is taken as a positive and not as "personal attacks" on anyone, I have been doing the same thing as the other supervisors and I do realize the need for change! Change is hard for everyone, but I am excited! Pray this goes well!

Grades are coming up, given the tools and the opportunities the kids are meeting expectations, Maybe Adam won't be grounded for a full 9 weeks, but the grounding is obviously working! Thank God! I was a little concerned he wouldn't care, but it seems he does! I received an email from one teacher noting the changes in Adam, since the beginning of the year, for the better! My heart jumped when I read it! She really noticed, he is getting it and he is trying, this makes me so happy!
Windy has grasped the idea of allowing us to help her study, just a little, and has noticed change already! In spelling, the most challenging subject for her, Windy received a 101% today, she doesn't need to retake it on Friday, one 5 min. session of studying with us and there she is! Yes, I love it when affirmation takes place! She is getting it too!
Horse lessons went great, for all three kids, Windy went for the lesson and the Boys went to watch, all were happy, learned something, left cold and ready to sleep! That is an AWESOME lesson!
Continue to pray for my FIL, he is doing well, dialysis has proved to be a bit of a challenge and both my FIL and MIL are learning how to do this and how to do it well, in order to enjoy life to it's fullest, to be able to take in all of God's Blessings each and every day. It is definitely a learning process and a change, and did I mention: Change is Hard and Change is Good!


  1. Well written, Chrissy. You have such a great attitude with your job and your children -- well, with all your life. Don't ever CHANGE that part of you, okay?

  2. Change is so hard, but as you said, it's good. This has been (and after the report I got at lunch from my girls' teachers) and will continue to be a challenging week for us as well. I'm so glad things are looking up for you and your kids in the area of school.
    Thanks for looking for the pumpkins for me. My little ones asked me about it today. Mostly they want to know why I don't have a "real" cornucopia yet. I told them that Mrs. Mongold just doesn't have it together this week. I'm quite sure they will also tell their parents I said that. Great!

  3. Change is a good thing. I have been learning new things on my job and it makes me feel like you are never too old to learn new things. I am so glad you love your job and the training.
