Staring at a blank page...

I have been so far out of the blogging world for months now that its hard to get back in the groove of things. Life just seemed to take over, so many disturbance's, so many things interferring with the daily grind and also goals that we had set. Every time we thought we were heading in one direction - someone changed the map. Little bumps in the road turned into hills that grew into mountains.
I concentrated on the hands on homeschooling instead of the writing about it, did it help The Red Ranger? Yes, in some ways - no, in others. Did it help me? I don't think so.
There are goals that have worked out, we just have to get a little further. There are goals that will hopefully pan out in the next few months, if things keep moving the way they are. Getting out of our apartment and into a house is a huge goal. The apartment has been sucking the life out of us, gradually over the past few years and then fast and furious the past two years. When you are told by your local police department that where you live is now known as a (and I quote) "known haven for drug and criminal activity"...well it sort of changes everything. It wasn't fantastic before, we knew there were problems but really - in almost five years its gotten that bad...truly makes you wonder.
We are - this close - to buying our home......come on August!!

I really don't want to tempt fate the next few months...I just want to sort of go in under the radar, be good and hope that we are overlooked - no Sauron-eye finding us while we slip into a new chapter.
If only we had a few elven cloaks to shield us, just for a little while.

It has gotten better and it will continue to get better - I have faith in that and in us to be strong enough to get there....but that cloak sure would help every now and then...:-)
