You Can’t Please Everybody All of the Time… December 30, 2010

Filed under: General — Flickerchic @ 12:08 pm

In an attempt to not offend any of our extended family this year, Seon and I decided that us and the boys would celebrate Christmas at home this year. In the past, we would drive to The Can to visit my family on Christmas Eve and then come back to Funkytown to have dinner with his family on Christmas day. Needless to say, that is very tiring for us.

Well, I tell my mom about our plans, but evidently Seon didn’t think to share the news with his. Now his mom is upset because we didn’t come to Christmas dinner and I’m not quite sure how to make it right. I know it’s not actually my place to do so, but I value the relationship that I have with my MIL.

In the end, we did what we felt was best for our family and I’m glad that we did. I was able to prepare a grand dinner for our family and I wasn’t exhausted after it was all over.

Sometimes you might rough a few feathers as you grow and start to do things the way you want. You can’t please everybody all of the time. It’s not worth the effort even trying. I’m starting to realize this more and more as I strive to be the mother and wife that I want to be.


MIA June 30, 2010

Filed under: General — Flickerchic @ 2:50 am

Well, I have been MIA for quite awhile. During the school year it’s hard to find the time to blog. Since school is out, I’m going to try to make myself get back in the habit of blogging. There’s quite a bit that I need to add, but quite frankly, I don’t feel like it now. It is almost 3am and I’ve been working on my classroom webpage for the last 4 hours. So I guess I will return to share. Goodnight.


Exhausted… July 31, 2009

Filed under: General — Flickerchic @ 8:50 pm

I must say, I am quite exhausted. It has been a long two weeks. Between working on hundreds of pictures and then doing papers to help my mom out in her speech class, I haven’t been getting much sleep these days. Well, I can’t say that this is all that’s to blame. If you add a get together Saturday that last until the wee hours of the morning, unexpected drive to Killeen to drop off my niece, whom I love, but that trip was taxing and then we didn’t even get a nod of the head in thanks afterwards. Hosting friends for a few days. Now maybe it’s easier to understand why I’m exhausted. I just want to take a long, hot bath and wind down with my book. That sounds like a plan.

Well, maybe God has been listening and answered my prayers. Schools have been closed effective immediately due to a swine flu epidemic. According to the news reports, there are three schools in the district that have confirmed cases of the swine flu. Now let me say, this was not the way that I was wanting to get a break, but I will take it! I really  need to clear my mind and regroup. This has been a very stressful year. Much more so than last year. I just don’t understand why our school can’t be NORMAL!!! But nonetheless, I get a mini vacation and I’m thrilled. Now let me find something for us to get into!


I hate this damn computer April 21, 2009

Okay I know I’ve posted about this several times before. And here I go again. Why didn’t I listen to the Sales Rep at Best Buy when he told me not to buy a Toshiba computer. But what did Tina do? Tina goes ahead and buys the Toshiba. After everything else that I’ve dealt with with this laptop, not the freaking monitor goes out on it. And the janky thing is only 2 years old. So I guess I’ve learned a very expensive and time consuming lesson. DON’T BUY A TOSHIBA LAPTOP!!


Just blog… March 20, 2009

Filed under: General,life - Mood: Contemplative — Flickerchic @ 1:56 pm

Okay, we are settled back into our own place, which allows me to get back to work on my blog. While I had some off time, I started to think about the direction I wanted to go with this blog. It’s already been through some many changes, but sometimes I still feel like I haven’t found my comfy groove. As I read over some of what I’ve written, it appears that I’m all over the place with my posts.

My overall goal for this blog from the beginning was for me to have a place to channel my thoughts. This is still the case, it emcompasses so much more than woe is me journals, sappy posts about the kiddos, or rants and raves about the hubby. Surely there will be plenty of these postings, but I want this blog to also serve as a source of information. A guide. A place to meet kindred spirits and like minds.

So, as I once again find myself in this frantic state to make changes to something that may not need to be changed, I consider the notion that maybe my blog is just what I hoped it would be. Yes, the posts are random and all over the place. Isn’t that what resources are: various tidbits of information throughout a given place. Maybe I should just leave well enough alone. And just blog…


Back home at last!!! February 27, 2009

Filed under: General,Life - Mood: Ecstatic — Flickerchic @ 5:05 pm

The title says it all! I’m ecstatic to report that we are no longer in transition. We are back home at last. No more hotels. No more last minute crashes. No more inconveniences. We are home. Back in our own place. It’s an apartment, not a house, but I don’t care. I will take it. (For now anway! :)) I want to say in advance to anyone that knows me, and if you read this blog, if we ever decide to get any more wild hairs up our buts, regardless of how well intented they are, please pluck them for us! We will really love you for it.
