Kris said if I didn't write in my blog that she was going to delete me. Well I don't want to be deleted from anybody blog so here I go.

I was looking at my last entry and it's been a year. Well so much has happened. My husband moved back in and we are working on our marriage. I still am not sure if we will stay married because I think that the only one that is really working on our marriage is me. More of that later.

Last Christmas when we had the bad snow storm my in-laws came to stay with me. They are snow birds and have been flying up for Christmas and staying with one of there kids. After the visit they would never stay with me again. It seems that it is what happens after they have stayed at each of there kids. The question was where were they going to stay this year. Well at our family dinner on Sunday they announced that they would not be going to Arizona and the reason is they are flat broke. They lost a great deal of there 401K with this econimic downturn and the rest they did not spend wizely. They currently are renting there house to there son so they will put there 5th wheel in the driveway until someone complains and then I don't know what will happen. Dad is looking for a job but with unemployment in Vancouver at 13.8% it's not likely he will find anything. More to come. I will write more tomorrow.

The worst week of my life

People say that God gives you only what you can handle and I believe I am there. On September 2Nd, 2008 my husband of 11 years told me that he didn't want to be married any more that he wanted to be free and run. Just be on the road and have no responsibilities. It has been very difficult for me because he was my rock as well as my best friend. I feel lost and alone in this world. But though this I have found that I have some very Awesome kids. They have been there for me in every way. To make matters worse my Brother-in-law died on September 5th, 2008. He was my Brother-in-law by law but my Brother in my heart. I have know him since I was 12 years old. He has always been their for me when every I needed him. He believed that I could do anything I set my mind to even though I didn't believe him. Losing two people in my life that I was very close to has been a big blow. When I needed my husband the most he wasn't there. I don't know how I am going to get though these next few months. I guess I need to take it one day at a time.

As I came home from work the other night I came down Glisan street and was going to turn on to 131st Ave but couldn't, it was being blocked by two police cars. No problem I can go down 128th but it was blocked by two police cars as well. Not a problem I can go down 127th but no it was blocked as well. Not a problem I can go down 124th, there was two police cars but they weren't' blocking the street. I turned and halfway down the street there was two police cars blocking Oregon Street. By now I am just a little nervous. I grew up in this neighborhood and I haven't seen that many police in my life time in the neighborhood. As I got to Hassalo I rolled down my window to ask the police man If I should be worried going home. He told me that they were looking for a man that had stolen a car and had run into the neighborhood. Were I live I have a 10 acre field next door to me. They call it a park but it's a field. I remember as a kid trying to hide from my sisters and laying up next to the fences and they couldn't see me. I told this to the police man and he decided to follow me home. As he walked me up to the front door my dogs started barking. Now Jack hates guns. I don't care if they are plastic or real, he hates them. Now if I didn't know Jack I would have been afraid. The cop said with a little chuckle, I think you are going to be OK, If he was in there I would have to call the coroner. I don't know if they found the guy because I locked up my house and didn't go out again. At least we know that the Portland Police do work.

It's about time

Disclaimer: If you have a heart attack or fall off your chair I am not responsible. "I am writing on my blog. The world will not come to an end.

Well so much has happened since July were to begin. I broke my ankle in September and no I was not trying to follow in Kris foot steps. After a couple of months I am back on my feet. Not something I want to do again.

This is short but I promise I will keep my blog up. Maybe not daily but at least weekly.

I am taking a Income tax law class. I am so glad I have been audited because if I had been I would have been screwed. You can bet I am changing the way I am keeping records.

The other class I am taking is a computer class. Now I thougth I knew alot about computers, I don't. Both of these classes have made me rethink how much I know.

Count them Yes I have 8

My Harry Potter book 7 Adventure

My kids all read and love Harry Potter. Don't get me wrong I love the books as well but we all agreed we would go to Borders and go to the party to get our books at Midnight. So I went over after lunch and got our wristbands. I went over to Borders about 9:30 with Nate and it was a mad house. I have been to the other parties but this was way different. Wall to wall people. Now Nate doesn't like crowds and this was no place to put a person who doesn't like crowds. He soon asked if he could go to the car. So here I am by myself. Remember I was suppose to do this with my Kids. My Sister came with her granddaughter about 10:30 but Piper is only 4 and soon got tired. So again I was left by myself. They started calling the wristbands about 11:30 and I get a call from Ben, one of those that were to be with me. He wanted to know if we were lining up yet. I said yes and were has he been. Of course he had a very good excuse. Becky had to work until midnight so she had a good excuse. Here I am standing in line for 3 books and 1 set of audio CD for people that weren't here. About 12:20 Becky called and said that she was out front and the line went around the building. She came in and stayed with me until we got our books. We got out of there about 1:30 am. That is the longest I had to wait for a book. Of course I had to come home and read a little. And no I haven't finished it yet. So back to the book.
