In the time I've been away, Tiger turned 19. He graduated from high school, got a job as a cashier at a convenience store, and is considering joining Florida Wildlife Commission, which is like a police officer but dealing with wildlife issues. I think he'd be very good at it. He's been with his girlfriend for almost three years and they're planning a future together. I give it five years and I'll be a grandmother.
Bucket turned 18 in early July. Yes, all of my children are now adults. We are in the process of applying for social security disability for him. He didn't graduate with his class and so he's going back for at least a half year. He has 3.5 credits before he can graduate.
Missy will be 21 in a week. She's working part time and dropped out of college for now. I'm praying she goes back.
I'll be at my job for a year this upcoming Wednesday. It is not my happy place. I have routinely starting calling my office "the lion's den" and I dread pulling into the parking lot. I've had to increase my blood pressure medication and I eat my lunch in my car to avoid talking to anyone so no more complaints will be lodged against me. It's so hard being in a place for 9 hours a day when you're so unhappy.
That being said, I did take some pictures over the course of a few months.

Somehow, I managed to come out of my funk a bit, and I applied to a company which called me two hours after I emailed them. I have an interview Friday, and I took the entire day off just so I can relax, maybe get a pedicure and my goodness do I need a three day weekend. I don't know if this is the right step, but I do know that I'm not getting anywhere, where I'm at right now. So it's worth a shot, right?
