Getting back on track!

If you haven't noticed, I've made some changes around here. I just didn't think "loving my life as a mommy and wife" was quite fitting anymore. Makin' it as a single momma is much more my style these days :) I also updated the about me page, and revised my 101 in 1001 list, and have a few things to check off of it!

For one, I got a job! I'm waiting tables, but its all good. The job is fun and its bringing in more money then I had before!!! Also, I opened a savings account! Saving money is quite difficult for me. I've never been able to do it in the past but this time I'm determined. I thought I was living frugally before, well now it's a whole new ball game! So its time to start saving!!

I'm excited for this new chapter in my life. I never imagined I would be in this situation, but I am now so I just have to go with it. I find my self saying "what could I have done differently? Where did I go wrong?" But I've got to stop that, I need to stop harping on the past and start planning for the future. I think I would like to go back to school and become an LPN, so that's my next goal to accomplish. I just want a better life for my babies, and for myself :) I'm getting back on the right track, just taking baby steps....


Get a job.
Open a savings account.

Hey GO BACK TO SCHOOL!!! Its tough & I can't imagine doing it with little ones but YOU CAN DO IT!!! I went to school with several single moms!! If you don't have a degree yet, you can look into Pell Grants (money you don't have to pay back!).

Sorry you are having to go it alone but you can do this.

I've read your blog all along even if you never thought I Never kept up with it. I intend to still keep up with it. Your an outstanding mother and one of the most caring people I've ever met. Ciera Danielle you have a great heart and you want a great life and only deserve the best. Keep working towards your goals; I'm sure things will eventually work out with you and your husband. There once was a girl that couldn't be stopped from seeing him or being with him, and I know he still loves you more then anything thing in this world. Keep your head up girl!
