Home sick...

(I layed by the pool all alone today to have some peace and quiet and time to think) Doesn't the pool look refreshing??

On Friday I drove from South San Fran back 'home' to Fresno/Clovis. This time, I am finding it really hard to get back in the car and drive back to SSF. When I met Aaron all he could talk about it was moving away from South City and buying a house and us having a great family together. For some reason, I am thinking that is not what is really going to happen. I agreed to move to South city under the condition that it was temporary. I know he has his son there, but people make it work. I am just really whiny and complaining right now because I am down in the dumps, so please forgive me. I am not going to sit here and bash the bay area. For some people it is the place to be. But for me, it will never be home. I hate that you pay 2 grand for a tiny shack and renting is a must. It is way too liberal for my taste and I find it difficult to find people who share my similar views and beliefs. An ideal weekend for me is laying out by the pool and BBQing with friends. When can you ever do that in SSF with it always being 55 degrees? I dont want my child to go to school in South city. I want to raise them in a more conservative environment. I have so many goals and so many ideas on how I want my life to be but I am finding it hard to get my husband on board. I find it hard to make him really listen to what I am saying about what I want. How do two people come to an agreement or compromise on their future???

2009's Action Plan

Now that I am unemployed, I have a ton of time on my hands. 2 days ago on Oprah, I watched Suze Orman explain her Action Plan to help American's get out of debt in 2009. She provided so much useful information and I am considering picking up her new book. Our challenge is that our expenses significantly outway our income. We have been trying to sell Aaron's Dodge truck for almost a year now and no hits. It is a really nice truck with over 5 grand in extras too! It just seems like no one wants to buy a truck in this economy! What does your family do to get out of debt?

It's been awhile...

Wow, it seems like it has been forever since my last entry. A lot has changed in our lives!! I am no longer employed...Work was getting to be very hard on me, mentally and emotionally which led to me quitting! (I know it's psycho right?!) Especially since everyone and their mama is getting laid off left and right, who in there right mind would quit due to a little harrassment?! ME of course! Then we found out some exciting news! I'm Pregnant!! We are so excited and cannot wait until my first doctor appointment on May 26!! =)
