I suppose apologies are in order?

So for those of you are following me... I am sure you have noticed that I disappeared and may have come to the conclusion that I would never return.  But here I am.  So I want to apologize to my 20 followers, I was so excited when you all made the decision to follow me and I feel I have probably let some of you down.  No real excuse for my disappearance.  Life just happened I suppose....

I think a part of it may have been my job at first.  As some of you may remember I was not happy at all working at Sam's Club.  It went from bad to worse I am sorry to say and I personally think if I had written often my dislike for my job would have been frequently mentioned.

A lot has happened this year...

I did eventually quit working for Sam's Club and started working for Safeway.  It was... an experience?  I started working in the bakery as a Bakery Clerk with the hope of eventually becoming a Cake Decorator.  I cake decorated for a total of one week and then spent the rest of my time there mainly working from the hours of 1 a.m. to 9 a.m. as a donut fryer.  Horrible horrible horrible...  I have never really considered myself much of a social person but working by myself in the middle of the night while at first wasn't that bad soon became something I hated.  No one to talk to and what little social life I did have went right down the drain.  I would sleep all day because I worked all night which my body was not liking at all.  Then when I did work during the day I almost missed working the night because my co-workers were so negative that it made me sick and depressed.

Moving along though...

I recently quit working for Safeway I am happy to say.  Now I am a nanny full-time and I love it.  I have to admit I never thought it would be something I would go back to.  I used to babysit a lot as a teenager but well that is what you do when you are a teenage girl you babysit.

Here I am now as a full-time nanny for one family and I couldn't ask for more in a job.  The family is great, they have 4 kids who are all adopted and amazing. 2 boys and 2 girls.  For the safety of the family I will not name names but they are a great family.  I am really happy with my decision to quit my job at Safeway and make this happen for myself.

On another happy note I am also with someone who I will also keep anonymous as he has requested it.  I didn't really expect it to happen that is for sure.  We have been together for a while now though and I am still just as happy as when we first started hanging out.  While we butt heads, and to be honest have polar opposite interests, we click?  He's an oddball but I like it.  =]  He is also probably the main other cause for my disappearance.  We met before we moved to our new apartment which is across town from where we used to be.  So when we moved all my free time went to mainly driving to his side of town and spending time with him.  It was even harder when I started working nights.  It has all worked itself out though.

So that is all I have to write for now.  I am hoping (though I will not make a promise) that I will be on more often, posting more often to be exact.  Despite my lack of writing I have been keeping up with many of the blogs that I follow.

Hope I will see you all soon,
