This year so far has been a whirlwind of excitement, tears, and new beginnings.  My son started school as a first grader at Chandler Elementary.  He has made tons of new friends and really enjoys going to school every day. His first midterm came out and he made all A’s and S+.   I could not be more proud of him. He says his favorite classes are lunch and recess.  I believe that was probably everyone’s favorite while in school.

            For me this year has been a trying journey so far.  I have continued my education at Indiana Institute of Technology for my Associates of Science, and I have about 9 months left to go until I graduate.   I also started my new job with Tri-State Trophies back in April.   Once I was finally starting to get the hang of things and feel comfortable within my new position.  I was told I would be having Gallbladder surgery immediately.  Everything went well with the surgery and I was able to return to work within 2-3 weeks.  I once again got settled into my position, and started my training back up.  Then, I was told I would be having another knee surgery on August 30, 2018.  I had a pervious surgery in 2017 but never seemed to get relief from the pain.  So, once again I was put out of work from my new job.  Thankfully, my employers are wonderful understanding people.  They again allowed me to be off work for this surgery.  Everything went very well with the surgery this time and I am now currently back to work after being off for a month.  I’m settling back into my job and continuing to go to school, and still in mommy mode 24/7.  My son and I just moved into our new place, and we are really enjoying it so far.  This is the first time that we have lived alone without anyone else.  My son is very excited because I gave him the master bedroom with the bathroom in it.  I figured why would I need a big room?  It’s not like I have toys and things to play with.  I have high hopes that everything will continue to go smoothly these last few months of this year.  My son has basketball starting soon, and I will end this semester of school at the beginning of December.  I’m excited to host my first holiday get together at our new house, and cannot wait to create all of these new memories.  Just call me super mom because I can and will do it all.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.
