So my job is going well, and I have finally completed all the required classes for my certification. I graduated with my Associates Degree from the College of Southern Maryland. I have been focusing on pulling my head out of the sand and trying to stay positive.
Paul is struggling I think. His contract ended yesterday so he is officially unemployed. Hopefully that won't be for long. He totalled our Jeep 2 days after Christmas so we have one car for our family and that as any of you know can be very inconvenient.
Trae is working at a farm and seems to be enjoying it. His back is healed and from what he tells me only bothers him once in awhile. He isn't dating anyone currently but seems to be content with that as well.
Coty is doing very well. He and two of his friends started their own clothing line. Mostly online but it's the beginning. His website is Dankh.com. They created their own logo and are struggling kids trying to start their own line. He graduated from high school in 2012 and seems to have been making better decisions.
As a family we drove to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We met my sister Liz, her husband Ron and her son Jackie Poo, My brother Johnny, his wife Tammy and their son Jeremy and daughter Kinsey. We stayed in this wonderful cabin. We went zip lining and horse back riding. It was so fun and so good to see my family and spend time with them.
Things haven't been easy for my family but we have each other. We stick together, we love each other and we pull together when things get tough and it makes things easier to get through.
