Saturday Late Night Chatter

Well, if you have been reading my blog for a long time now. I’m willing to bank by now you have been wondering where my NORMAL blogs have gone. At least, I hope you have anyways. I have been blessed with several opportunities to share so many things with you over the past couple of weeks/months. I have totally enjoyed all of them. I just don’t want you to think that all I’m going to do is shove many different products/services down your throat. My blog will NEVER be solely just that!

The reason I know that is because the original reason I started this blog was to share with others my personal thoughts on so many tough topics. I find oddly enough the tougher topics are far easier to talk about than deciding what’s for dinner. If you don’t believe ask my family!! Del gets mighty frustrated with me because I never plan out what we’re going to have for meals. I have no quarrel with cooking anything he wants me to cook (80% of the time), but please don’t ask me to plan out menus. Maybe the reason for that has a lot to do with dreading the whole process of cooking and cleaning up. Usually, if I know what I’m going to have to eat ahead of time for some reason that meal no longer sounds remotely appealing to me by the time I go to eat it. Maybe that’s because I’ve had to dread fixing it all day long..who knows. Am I the only crazy person who has that issue??

The reason I’m still up is because it’s finals week for Del in his TWO classes this term. Bless his heart he’s been working hard on those classes for the past five weeks. He’s still going strong on obtaining all A’s. He may have his moments of ranting out of pure frustration over doing this school work, but he’ll never know how proud I am of him. He’s doing this to make our life even better than it currently is. I honestly believe with every ounce of my being that he would have done this for us had I married him back in 1998. Yea, we’ve had to make some sacrifices since we both started on the college route, but in the long run it will be worth it.

Sometimes I do wonder though if he’s going to resent missing out on so much with the kids since they are young now. However, I also know that I missed out a lot with my first born because I was always working. I did what I could to show her that I loved her (as much as I could allow myself to love her considering the circumstances.) Do I wish I would have had more time with her? Heck ya!!

However, on the flip side of that…my boys don’t think Mommy works hardly at all because they don’t see housework, teaching them, blogging business, and running errands like crazy for everyone as work. Del putting the boys in their place over that subject matter still makes me beam with delight. It also made me want to live up to his words of praise even more. (Although, I do still feel I need more hours in a day in order to truly do all I long to do.) I’m finding out from the Facebook comments I received that I’m definitely not alone in that category.

Well, who is counting down to Sunday for the Wii U?? What games are you getting??

Well, I’ve probably rambled more than I should have. However, just wanted to let you all know it’s not going to be all ads on this here blog. Just remember you never know what is going to come on my screen. 😉 That’s why I called it Tid Bits of Experiences. Let me tell you, there’s all kinds of tid bits of experiences happening in my life! 🙂 As I’m sure there are in your own life. Why don’t you share some of yours with me??

(The usual pattern though in all seriousness has been parenting (kid related post) on Monday, Movie Reviews on Tuesday, Wednesday something to do with marriage, Thursday-Saturday (never know what I’m going to throw out there), and Sunday is usually something to do with inspiration of some kind.)

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.
