A Discovery

A Discovery


I discover a lot of things in a day.

Missing socks.... Lost pennies.... The email I forgot to respond to....

Yesterday I discovered the Hippie had read my blog on here.

It's not surprising to me to know that he is on here as I met him here, 9 years ago, when he was merely just a blog reader, then.

From there, a friendship bloomed.

He was a trusted friend through a lot of different changes in my life.

New jobs, the<b> death </font></b>of my mother, good days and bad days.....

But the time came when I knew I had to move forward for my own personal growth. I tried really hard to get him to move forward with me, but he was resistant, and did not want to make change. I knew I could no longer remain stagnant...

So, I moved forward without him.

I am continuing on my path of improvement as I feel its time I focus on myself for a change.

And, I'm just going to be honest here, I'm kind of a mess internally.

But, I'm getting better. Each day is a new opportunity for me to get my shit together and be just a little bit more of myself.

It's paying off.

I've been offered the opportunity for a promotion at work, which I really have to mull over as it would involve a relocation, but the opportunity is on the table.

There are parts of me that still remain the though....

I don't think I will ever lose the spoiled inner drinks milk right from the carton.

Spawn - Mom!!

Me - Aaah! Where did you come from?!?

Spawn - We've had this conversation! Get a glass!

Me - I'm the only one ever drinks milk around here.

Spawn - Yah, now!!

So, yep, busted once again drinking milk right of the carton. I'm the one does the dishes! Why bother dirtying a glass when I'm the only one drinks the milk??

Happy Friday Folks!

    Relocation, huh? 🤔 Ooo... that's always a tough one to mull over. Especially if it takes you away from your family.
    I've refused a few of those.
    Money might be the deciding factor? 🍷🍷👍😎❗
I'm experiencing some very mixed feelings about it all. I really like my coworkers, and my kids have a comfortable routine. Thankfully I have a little time to weigh the pros and cons.

    Ian Ikon - "Discover Me"

    Every night I see this dream of you
    Stuck in mind like a tatoo
    And every day I only think of you
    And I wonder 'bout the things we' ll do
    And every moment is an empty space
    Wish you' d come and fill that place
    I wanna meet you finally face to face
    Step up to me and then you'll have a real taste
    Discover me
    Come along and dance with me
    Through my steps you have to see
    Who I really am and just feel free
    Discover me
    Come along and dance with me
    Feel my heart beat, find the key
    Let me touch you, set you free
    We haven't seen each other very much
    But there is a way to get in touch
    Just follow me and have a playful dance
    Let's get together, take this chance
    My moves will speak, no need to talk with words
I'm playing this song right now.... I really, really like it! Thank you.... You've helped me to broaden my musical taste and 'discover' a lot of new music.

    Isn't that what a mom usually says?
    Sounds like the job offer will take a lot of thinking and possibly planning. That's a huge decision to uproot the youngest and not be able to see the middle one as often.
My daughter is 100% my mini me. Sarcastic, funny personality.... Looks, everything. And, yes, that is something a mom would say. I said that exact same thing to her on Monday when I caught her drinking pop right out of the 2 liter. LOL

    wow, how big of a relocation would the new job be?
It's about an hour away... Far enough away that I would need to move. Which means, my daughter would be moving with me. This would be changing a lot within our day to day routine and her abilities to see her dad, my abilities to see my middle son. He wouldn't be able to just pop in whenever....

    For me it's the OJ. But I refuse to put milk on the table unless it is in a pitcher.
    Share the job opportunity with me off here and we can mull it together
We drink a lot of water... I don't even put the milk on the table at meal times. When I have time and get back from the gym tonight, I would like to mull it over, thank you for the offer.

    maybe you should buy multiple smaller containers of moo juice.
I really am the only one that drinks milk here.... I have chocolate milk in the fridge right now that hasn't even been opened (because I don't like chocolate milk).
