Here comes 2008!

Do you ever sit at the computer, with all sorts of stories or things you want to say, and just can't get them out??

That's what had happened every time I've thought about blogging for the past few months.

I could blame the holidays, but it started WAYYYY before then.

I could blame being too busy, but after I get my 7 year old off to school in the morning I'm doing my own thing till I pick my oldest up at 2pm.

I could blame my boyfriend's daughter when she's here, but well, she's just too cute. And I can't blame a 14 month old, she needs attention, she's a baby!

I could blame being stressed about money since we are going for permanent placement of my boyfriend's daughter do to some not so stellar choices from her mama.

And I KNOW that part of it is the stress. I'm worried that we are going to be continually strapped and end up not having what we need to take care of all the court and lawyer fees if his ex doesn't agree in mediation. We have lots of family support from my family that should keep us afloat, but with a lawyer that charges $150 an hour, and the courthouse being almost an hour from her office, the fees pile up fast!

On top of that, we have his income, which is great, but I need to come up with a budget to make sure everything gets taken care of in a timely manner. We want to buy a house within the next year or so, and well, while his credit is good, he doesn't have much, so any late payments hit it harder.

Here's the first of what I hope to be many posts here in the future. Sorry I left you all for so long....but I'm back and raring to get 2008 off to a positive note.
