Update on us

I haven't written forever.  I doubt anyone is still even looking here to see what I have to say.  2012 was a horrible year for me and my family.  I won't even rehash it but if it could happen it did. 

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.

Logan is good, school is good and as usual he is on the honor roll each semester of 7th grade.  He has a girlfriend off and on as most kids 13 years old.  He is totally into music and loves to sing.  He loves his friends and talks to them nonstop.

Sheeva had surgery for a torn ACL.  The Vet said it was hanging by a thread when he got in there but she is a trooper and today you'd never know she had such a serious surgery.  She is spoiled rotten and loves to cuddle anyone who will lay with her.  Her favorite thing in the world is called a bully stick but lord have mercy they stink. 

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.
