Yep it's true..... this afternoon I went out in snowy weather and past my G2 road test! Give me a shout if you like this, ha! I am just so excited as I feel such a freedom and sense of accomplishment right now! After getting home from the test I tricked everyone into thinking I failed, then my friend (Marty) got everyone together and we suprised them by letting them know I past and Marty brought out some bubbly so we could celerbrate! It was a joyous event!

First brake!

So last night I went to the banquet hall a few hours early with a team to help set up the place. As I was unstacking the chairs (made from some kind of solid rock/metal) the pile of them tipped over and came crashing down on my left foot. I was knocked to the floor bundled up in pain. Some people rushed over and grabbed me some ice to put on it. I didn't know for sure how bad it was as I was wearing stockings and couldn't get a good look at my foot. But the show had to go on.. so I just tried to continue working as I limped and sat the rest of the night. I felt so bad as I really wanted to help more in getting things ready, I was thinking I had just bruised my toes pretty badly, I was in pain the whole evening but was able to make it through and still made announcements, DJ a bit and take some pictures. The evening turned out beautiful and everyone had a great time. (pictures will come) SO we we got home it was already 2:00 am and I didn't have the strength to go get my foot checked that late at night, so I waited till the morning. But I did notice that my middle toe had turned blue and black... it was so painful. So this morning I went to a walk in clinic to get it checked.... the doctor took one look at it and said " Yep that toe is broken!" I wasn't to surprised as it was so bruised and very painful. But because it's just my toe and not further up on my foot, the doctor just said to wrap it along side my other toes and it will set and be ok in 4 to 6 weeks. I am now referred to by some as "limpy or hop-a-long" Thanks guys hahah! Well it's not bad being that I'm 28 and it's my first broken bone. I'm thankful it wasn't worse!
Here's some ugly pictures to go with this post!

Valentine's Treasures

No, I will not dis or envy those who celebrate this day with all the hyped-up romance, flowers, hearts and kisses! For when thinking about it; why should we gloom with feelings of lost, loneliness and pain? Thinking we have no one to share the joys of this day. For in fact every one of us, if we took the time to think, that there are plenty of people out there who love us and really do care. So to all who think they may not have that "special someone" in there lives, I say think again, for you do have many who think you are wonderful and grand. And to those in my life I'd like to say Thank you for being my friend... this poem is for you!

Valentine treasures are people who

have often crossed your mind,

family, friends and others, too,

who in your life have shined

the warmth of love or a spark of light

that makes you remember them;

no matter how long since you’ve actually met,

each one is a luminous gem,

who gleams and glows in your memory,

bringing special pleasures,

and that’s why this Valentine comes to you:

You’re one of those sparkling treasures!

New year comes with new goals

Lots of things I'm trying to shoot for this year that are new for me. It's the beginning of a new way of thinking and living. I'm trying to find my way and am a bit late in getting started but I'm not letting that worry me. Just looking at the NOW and future to see how I can make steps of progress for me and my son.
I hope my road test will be booked soon (this month) as I've been waiting to take it and my driving instructor keeps giving me the round about and is now saying the only opening is for March 2nd. I'm a bit frustrated as I thought I'd be driving by now.

I am looking into getting a car and need lots of help and advice on this one. Don't really have a lot of money to work with. Need something small and in good condition so it won't brake on me.

I'm very thankful that last month I was able to find a job within a week,working at a daycare! It's a new experience and I'm learning lots. I hope that in some way this will help me get ahead.

I am also considering the option of getting a ECE teachers certification. Just doing the research now and hope that I can find the right thing to plug into. I have more things on my mind and on my plate but right now it's off to bed. Pretty tired as I'm working with the kiddos again tomorrow.

But lastly before I take off, could you keep my health in your prayers as I need to be functioning 100% to do this job, be a good mom, work with the teens in my city, find a car and pay bills. Its the story of everyone's life I know... but I let it get to me sometimes and that's not good. I read up about, not stressing the small stuff (0r big) Laugh more, relax etc. And I do try.... but it seems like I'm picking myself up more then I am at staying up. I wish I could be those people that you read about who, when they put their mind to something they just do it no matter what, they have such self discipline and motivation to actually make they're dreams a reality. I want and need to be like that and be happy too! :-)
