Life has a funny way of sneaking up on us.
I’ve been quiet busy lately. Lots has been going on with myself and family this summer. I’ve popped in to WP from time to time, reading posts and giving a “like” here and there. I admit I’m behind on most of your posts.
I have stopped job hunting. The Exec and I spoke in length regarding my position and where I see myself being after graduation; which has now been postponed (yet again) another semester. We are in the works of my role expanding. In fact, I received a very nice raise! One I can live off of. My first thought when he told me was “I can catch up on bills!” The Exec received a promotion and instead of overseeing 3 departments he is now in charge of almost 7. Since his role is expanding he won’t have much time to over see my area. We (more so, him) are in talks with higher ups to have me take over my area of the department! He just doesn’t have time for it and I have expressed plenty of interest to him that my goal is to take it over from him and continue it on for as long as I can. I really hope this comes through! Until then, I’m enjoying the new raise!
Family….sigh… Sister #1 gave birth to a beautiful nephew who will be 3 weeks old tomorrow. He has been in the NICU since he was born. No idea when he will be able to leave. Parents are in a rut. Mom had an accident back in January when a moving truck reversed into her, thus totaling the car and them down a car from 3 to 2. Brother left to college in a different part of the state, leaving them with 1 car (Dad’s). Dad’s car caught fire at a gas station last week. If you live in AZ you may have seen in on the news, the choppers were everywhere. They are now without a car. Dad has a motorcycle, so this will help him to and from work.
I’m going out on a limb here, but my parents have little to no money now and so my siblings (sister) and I took it upon ourselves to set up a GoFundMe account for them. We are hoping to at least get them enough for a down payment on a car. They are struggling enough with bills as it is, so we are hoping the money raised can help them.
My parents have had a pretty rough year. We aren’t ones to complain or say “woe is me”, but it’s just not fair the way they have had life handed to them this year. If you are interested, and again I’m out on that limb of risking my anonymity to help the folks, I can send you the link to the GoFundMe if you are interested in helping or would like to share it: Email: Sweetsugarsb@Outlook.com. The few of you who are now connected to me on my personal Instagram may have seen my post.
As mentioned before my graduation date is delayed another semester. But I’m okay with it. At the end of December I will receive 2 certifications; 1 for Personal Training and another for coaching. I’m pretty excited and this looks to be an easy semester. I’m on the home stretch finally!!
Now…if only I can pass these damn math classes.
