Leave of Absence

After a lot of stressing, talking, more stressing and more talking; Eddie and I have come to the conclusion that I need to take a Leave of Absence from work for the summer.  Three and a half months to be exact. Returning September 1st, 2016. It was not an easy decision to make and stressful in itself because we just bought a new car and our payments are more, where was I going to get money since there is no paid leave here?

But thanks to my mother and my sister-in-law it is going to be possible. My mom contacted her boss and asked if I could take in some typing (transcription work) to do at home and my sister-in-law has asked me to babysit her kids part-time. Between the two I should make just enough and can do it from home for the summer and still have enough to pay my part of the bills. In September I’ll re-asses. I got a doctors note and yesterday was my last day till September.

I was so tired of having to talk myself into going to work every day. Mentally it was so taxing I am sure it was adding to making me feel sick all the time gabapentin 300 mg high. I am looking forward to using the summer to spend time with my nieces and getting to know them better and with getting my health better, loosing weight and really putting myself and my soon to be husband and our families first.  [...]  READ MORE

Trapped under ice

Ever wonder what you are doing on the earth? Like, what your purpose in life is? I have been thinking about that a lot lately. I feel so much like something is missing. Like I am not living up to my full potential and that there is something more that I need to do.

I can’t help but wonder what it is. Does everyone think like this? Am I the only one? Sometimes I feel like I just have so many questions. I have been thinking a lot about people in my life that are no longer in my life. I don’t mean ex-boyfriends, ex-friends, or people I have known briefly. I mean my friends and family who have lived and died.

I don’t know why I am thinking about death all of a sudden. I just wonder why some people live long lives but don’t really seem to affect anyone other then their close friends and family and why others are taken from us too suddenly. Why were their lives cut short? Did they reach their purpose? Is that why they are gone? [...]  READ MORE

What’s in a name?

I have to admit I am being lazy and writing up some of my blog posts ahead of time right now. So that I do not fall back into the rut of not posting for weeks, and this is one of them. C’est La Vie! So, what’s in a name? By this I mean A Story About A Girl or storyboutagirl.org. I feel like giving a bit of a back history about the domain name, my blogging and whatever else I can think of related to this.

If you have read my about section then you may already know that the name is based off of an Our Lady Peace (OLP) song called Story About A Girl off of their Gravity album. If you want to check out some of their songs you can check out their iTunes page.
