Hey Y'all :)

WOW! just finished catching up.. lotsa new post and ppls :) welcome welcome! :)

Sorry I havent been around much, just trying to get things in order here. Started work, and oh my gosh.... I love it! I actually look forward to going to work now, that has never happened to me before, not in any job. Even the library work didnt turn my crank like this. It may have something to do with the fact its an honest to goodness job, not under the table or periodic, but something I can count on.

Living with my folks, is... well... WEIRD AS HECK!! lol Sometimes they treat us like roomies, then other times, (my mom expecially) treats us like lil kids. I talked to her about that and she said shes a mom its what she does. lol but she will try not to do it too often.

Fred and I are doing pretty good i think. With the current situation and all, we are making it through. We both realize that time for each other is important and that time apart is good too. We dont HAVE to spend every minute of every day together. lol (id like to, but i know its not healthy.. hehehe) We are planning a reception ect for August 9th.

We meet with the gent who will perform the ceremony next week to talk about what we would like to see happen. Thats one stressor outa the way. Papers area lil bit slower. Since I declared personal bankruptcy, I cant sponer him till its been discharged by the courts (blech) Sooooooo.. I have my first councelling session with the trustees and I have a few ??'s for them. Our next step will be determined by those ??'s . We will see if maybe my father can sponser him, job sponsership ect... His skills as a window washer are actually in high demand. Hes been certified to do high rises and would just need to renew his certification. That may be a way to get his papers sooner,. find a window company and dazzle them with his skills.

Sooo thats where my life stands right now. Paying off debts, saving a lil money, getting to know my husband more and more everyday. and falling more in love with him at every opportunity ;) lol

Each day brings a renewed feeling of stability and accomplishment.

TTFN :) Charlene

p.s. working on self esteem issues now, wish me luck.....

Well, it is nice to see you Charlene! Glad to hear you and Fred are doing well. How is the sleeping arrangement coming along? Has he bumped you out of bed anymore? I just remember your post about him not sharing the bed or something. LOL Im sorry. Anywho. Great to see you have a job you enjoy. Not alot of us can say that. Living with parents is weird. I know, I live with my dad with my two little boys. I am currently looking for a my own place now. Finally, after 1 and a half, I can afford to move out. Now, that is being on a very tight budget though. So, I wish you luck with the ceremony and keep us posted on how things are going!! Otherwise, goodluck to you and lots of hugs for you and Fred!
