Getting Things Back On Track

Since my separation/divorce I have been trying to do things they way I want them done. Not just the everyday little stuff like leaving my shoes in the living room if I want to, but the big stuff as well. I have taken care of getting better auto insurance rates, putting a life insurance policy in place for myself and getting dental insurance added.

One of the other things I have wanted to do over the years was donate blood regularly. Our church has a Blood Bank come in every 8 weeks to take donations. In the past it was always a battle because it took to long according to my Ex. Well today I donated blood for the third time this year.

There is a down side to the donating thing though. It seems like every time I Give the Gift of Life something comes back to bite me in the ass. The first time my car had to go into the shop. The second time my back acted up big time! Hopefully the third time is the charm and I will be good! 

I have also been mending some famliy ties that have been knotted up over the past 13 years. That should have been the first sign of bad things to come when he basically made everything about his family. But it wasn’t and now I have work to do. But let me tell you, luckily, family ties run deep and they are very forgiving!

  1. I’m really glad you’re getting things back on track. Isn’t it funny (not funny ha-ha!) how we let other people influence us? I hope it works for you and all the loved ones you’ve been missing. A family member is almost always ready and willing to welcome anyone back into the fold.

    I’d rethink that whole giving blood after church- you could always go to a blood bank 😉 LOL! I am so glad that you are enjoying doing things your way for a change and mending fences with your family is the most important thing you can do for yourself, and your kiddies! I’m so happy for you sister!

  3. It’s interesting finding different parts of your self and exploring new interests. And looking up old friends and family widening your cirlce. I like your new theme as well. Glad your doing well.
