Is anybody there?

Hello Blog world! If my existence was determined by the number of blog posts I've made, I know I would be considered MIA or DEAD..... However, have no fear! I am alive and well. There has been a lot that has happened over the last 6 months (seeing as though I posted last Nov 22) and I'm excited to tell you there are more changes to come. Here's a quick me, there will more than likely be individual blog posts on each of the events listed - all to be posted in due time.
*I am buying our house and its a nightmare! Cory and I decided that I would keep the house since we bought it with the kids in mind. However, I have to take it out of Cory's name and put it into I have to buy it! Let me tell you, it SUCKS! I'm doing all this stuff, making all these phone calls and I won't even get the joy of "moving" into my new home (ie picking out paint colors, new bedding, matching bath sets, etc). However - I love that my kids are settled and I will be the proud owner of my own home soon!
*I am still working. And by working, I mean WORKING. I am now a single mom (not just geographically anymore, I will legally be a statistic again soon), and I still work as a Paramedic in our County's EMS system. But on top of that, you can also find me working with our hospital's Transportation service as a Paramedic or with our local Rescue squad as a Paramedic or in the ER as a Communication's associate (my old job), or around town doing my Guardian Ad Litem thing or selling Thirty One products! If you lost count, thats 6 jobs that currently pay our bills! Keep in mind, the only "full time" jobs I have are Mom and Paramedic - the rest are just PRN positions that I hold and work when I can. I like to have as many different options as I can so that I don't get bored with one place or group of people.
*The kids are adjusting well. We have our good days and bad days, of course. But overall, they have been resilient. Samantha will be wrapping up her dance year in the next few weeks and will begin guitar lessons this summer (she got a PINK guitar for Christmas). Hailey has enjoyed the season off from soccer, but is ready for the fall. She will be taking piano lessons this summer. Both girls are going to a summer camp this weekend and have been accepted into a 1 week gifted summer enrichment program through Converse college. Reese is heading full speed ahead into potty training. So far, it has been good. He's having to make some adjustments since he's with Daddy, Granny and Pop every other weekend. We're all making the best of it and so far, it hasn't been too traumatic. We're on the go all the time, but wouldn't change it for the world!
*I think I'm gonna start a new blog. I think its fitting for this time in my life to close this chapter and create a new. I will keep this one up for a while longer because its linked to a local news station. However, there will be a link to the new blog as well. Hopefully you guys haven't given up on me! I have been keeping up with most of you, even if I haven't commented!

So look for more to come! There's plenty more I could type about, but I don't want to make my "first blog back" too lengthy. Thanks for hanging in there with me. Please feel free to leave me a message to let me know you're still here!
