Tragedy Has Struck My Family (Not A Death)

Tragedy Has Struck My Family (Not A Death)

Well just last month on May 10th my husband ended up getting arrested leaving me alone with no way to go. Luckily he has good friends that helped me adjust to being alone with two developmentally delayed children along with my family. Thank goodness he’s better at making friends than I am.

About a week later I got our truck back thank goodness. It was left at someone’s house and wasn’t impounded. Although the reunion with our truck wasn’t all rosy because it had been burglarized. If it wasn’t attached to the truck it was stolen along with my government phone that I was getting free service on. Such a bummer.

On top of that my kids were having a hard time adjusting to his absence with my oldest having to be hospitalized because he was thinking about killing himself, me and his sister. That was scary finding out that was going on in his head. He isn’t doing much better either, He’s schizophrenic, bi-polar and has Tourette’s syndrome. We still haven’t got his meds straightened out either. Please keep him in your prayers or whatever it is you do to help make good things happen.

My daughter cried for about a week but seems fine now but still misses her daddy.

As for me I was scared out of my mind for about two weeks and was wanting him home immediately despite the fact that I have been wanting a divorce for quite sometime now. I am doing much better now and we are doing better financially without him. So I will be going forward with the divorce soon.

Well thank you for reading my post and please keep us in your thoughts as we navigate this new adventure.

I Had A Dream

I Had A Dream

Well a couple nights ago I had the most fantastic dream.

We open on a very large living room, so you can imagine how big the rest of the house is, I didn’t get to the rest of it though. So anyway back to the living room, I couldn’t believe how big it was. Needless to say I’ve never lived in a big house being poor and all so this was a shock and I was very excited about it, until I heard all the noise coming from outside.

I opened my huge door and looked outside and there to my surprise was about 10 picnic tables lined up across our fenced in huge front yard and sitting at them were various grown ups and children having therapy sessions.

I know right? Crazy!

Well they also had their pets with them and this concerned me because in the dream I had 3 dogs. 2 Chiweenies and a mutt that had ears that sort of perked up but folded at the tips and he was scruffy and medium sized. Then I noticed the gate had been left open and I started to say something but one of the grownups beat me to it and said “she would probably like for us to shut the gate” so they did. I then let my dogs out and everything was fine to my surprise.

My cousins were there also and said that that was where these people always had their therapy sessions and that if I was going to live there I had to get used to it.

A little while later I got up to let my dogs back in and when I got to the door and they saw me they started whining like I had left them out there for a while, but in my dream it seemed like it had only been a little while. I went and sat down on the couch and they jumped up there with me and were all over me licking my face and whining. It was crazy.

Then the next thing I know I’m talking to a different cousin about how we couldn’t afford the rent there anymore and she said that we could live in her mom’s house rent free because there was no one living there. My other 2 cousins then asked her if they could live there too and she said no that she could only afford the 4 in my family.

Then I woke up.

It was admittedly a crazy dream and I’m surprised I remembered everything, or at least I hope I did anyway.

What crazy dreams have you had? Let me know in the comments!

Have a great day!

Feeling Overwhelmed?

Feeling Overwhelmed?

I know I was with my safelist advertising.

I was trying to click on all the emails from every site I was a member of in one day.

I know right? That’s just insane!

But I got to thinking why not pick one safelist everyday and click on the emails from it and send out a mailing to that one safelist? Best decision ever!

Now I have more time to spend with my family and doing the things I love most like blogging.

What do you do to keep from feeling so overwhelmed in one area of your life? Comment below!

Thanks for reading and please share, share , share!

Who Am I And Why Am I here?

Hi Readers!

I just wanted to tell you a little about me and why I blog.

First of all my name is Mary Owens and I’ve been married for 20 years. I have 2 kids, a boy 19 and a girl 13. They are both developmentally delayed so it’s pretty hectic around my house.

Second I started blogging to get more eyes to my online opportunity.

I want to blog about how stay at home parents can do it all and still have time for family and fun and to show parents who aren’t stay at home that they can be.

I really want stay at home parents to read my blog. I hope they will get a lot out of it.

I hope that I get lots of new readers to my blog and more people to my online opportunities. It will help people escape that horrible 9 to 5 job and be a stay at home parent if they’re not already.

Well thanks for reading and have a great day!

The Freedom Of Working From Home

The Freedom Of Working From Home

Everyone has their own reasons for working from home and that’s why they are so successful, they found their why. My why is because I’ve hated every job I’ve ever had but I have to have some kind of income to take care of my family.

But that’s only part of my why. I love the freedom of being able to work anytime I want. Right now it’s 10:19 P.M. and I’m writing a blog post. How great is that.

Also you can live anywhere you want to and work from anywhere. Now that’s freedom.

You save on gas too and we all know how expensive that is and who wouldn’t want to save on that?

NO BABYSITTERS! That’s especially good for me because both of my kids are developmentally delayed and teenagers. Can you imagine how expensive daycare is for a 13 year old and a 19 year old? I haven’t checked but I’m sure it’s up there. Now I’m sure you’re thinking “why can’t your family help with your kids?” Well both of my parent’s are dead and my husband’s parents live over 200 miles away and there’s no one else. This also brings me back to “I hated every job I’ve ever had.”

Now think about this, get out there and find your why!

Have a great night!

4 Animal Activists To Watch

“For years, SeaWorld has manipulated scientific information to influence the public’s perception of marine mammal captivity, and for years, a silent war has been waging against SeaWorld by scientists and activists alike.” …

This article focuses on 4 people at the forefront of marine mammals in captivity and how their contributions have helped swayed what people believe is best for the animals.

I do not believe they should be kept in captivity. It is very cruel in my opinion.

The following article talks about a few marine parks and what they do plus the 4 main people.

Activists You Need To Watch

While animals in captivity has been going on for a while I will always believe it is cruel and they should never be taken from the wild. These people are changing the way others think, and that’s a good thing.
