Halloween 2012

             So we have been here in the town of Grundy, Virginia for 3 months now and Halloween is rapidly approaching.  The kids are doing great in school, in fact by the Texas grading system they would both have straight "A's", however our school system grades slightly different and although to me they both made straight A's, David actually made A's and B's. 
              I am doing good in school, I think, we don't actually get grades this year, we get a proficiant, non-profiecant, or fail.  We had a mid-term in Real Properties and in Torts.  The end of this first semster is rapidly approaching and I am feeling good about it.
              Today I talked to a dear old friend, who was not aware of everything that had transpired in my life over the last year and a half.  He asked me a question that I honestly didn't have to stop and think about for the first time in my life.  He asked me if I was happy.  I was able to answer him quickly, and honestly that for the first time in a very long time I was truely happy.  I don't feel the need to conform to someone elses standards, I don't feel that I have to live up to everyone elses expectations of me.  The people I am talking about are not even able to see this posting so if you are reading this it is not you I am talking about ;)
              I truely feel that this move may have been the best possible thing I could have done for myself and my children (yeah mom I know you are here to :) but you decided to come with me they had no real choice).  I am still not sure as to what I will be doing when I graduate, or where I will be heading to take the Bar exam but I do know that wherever it is it will be someplace for me.

Ok so I mentioned in a previous posting about an urge/call for change, well here we go.  On July 6th mom, my 2 kiddos and myself will be leaving Texas for Virginia.  I have been accepted into the Appalachian School of Law and will be there for 3 years. 

Over the last 3 months I have sold off my wonderful goats, my chickens and most of the household items to make this move possible.  In June I was divorced from the man I thought was my soul mate.  apparently he didn't feel his vows were as strong as I did.  Anyway.....

I will post our trip to Virginia and information about our new town as we go along.

The hardest Month of my life by far

I would have to say that January is now ranked up there as the hardest month of the year for me for awhile. Last year we lost Nana in January, Papa's Birthday is in January, and this year we lost Dad in January. Yes Dad passed away January 3, 2012 he got his extra year and then some. Life is hard, in fact I caught myself a couple of times today on emails thinking that I needed to forward that to Dad because he would get a kick out of it, then the truck was acting up and I started to pick up the phone to call him and literally had his number pulled up and was about to dial it.
It's gonna be real hard but we will make it!! I love you Dad, I Love you Nana and miss you both dearly.
