It's been a long long time and I dropped by to check up on all of you! I'm glad to see there are still many familiar faces here that I've missed. An update on where I've been: Life has been busy (as always) and I am doing my best to keep up. I have a full-time job, a part-time job, I attend NMSU full-time and am working on 2 degrees at one time (criminal justice and computer technology). I still have 4 of my 5 children living at home with me. The oldest is in California, working and attending college. The second oldest will be graduating high school next year. I cry everytime I think about it! The twins are as beautiful as ever and already thinking about where they want to attend college when they graduate high school. As for my youngest... well he's just my loving angel that keeps me going when times get tough. If I had as much love stored up in me as he seems to have in him, they'd call me a saint. Can you tell I dote on him much? I have managed to keep a roof over my head and still have 4 wheels to get me around, and as for my health, well getting older comes with a price most of us don't want to have to pay, but I'm not planning on going anywhere anytime soon! It will be awhile before I can finish up my BA and BS and apply it to a govt. level job, and my current jobs suckkkkk, so I decided to do something to make myself feel good about me and something that would make my children proud of me. It was also a good way to give back to the community since so many people have given so much to me over the years. I took 4 extremely hard classes all at once (aside from my math class, computer class, and psych class) last semester, got my certifications and went on to take 3 state exams this past january 30th...... and just found out a few days ago that I PASSED!!!! It has been the worst 6 months of my college career, but I am finally a volunteer EMT for the village of Cloudcroft! Don't ask me what possessed me to get involved with anything that had to do with medicine or saving lives, it's not exactly my thing, nor is it a career of choice, but it IS still an adrenal rush, and I AM still able to give back to my community in a way that makes me feel good about myself. I think it's just what I needed. Aside from just trying to survive this life.... and all the year long processing I had to do when applying with L.A.P.D. and T.P.D., this is probably one of the hardest goals I've ever set for myself, and one that I actually accomplished There's still no man in my life, which is fine. I am at the point where I think it would be too difficult for me to adapt to anyone else being in my life. I have become very comfortable with my independence and don't have a desire to give that up! It does get lonely from time to time and I do soooo miss having someone love me, BUT ... my children love me and I adore them for that. You would think teenagers would be embarrassed to be with their mom of all things but they actually hate when I have class at night. They love having me around and that makes me feel special. If I had a man, perhaps my relationship with my children would not have blossomed as much as it has. I would not trade that in for the world! So that's enough of me. I miss all of you and hope, in my own strange way, that we can keep in touch. I hope all of my friends are doing well and moving forward in great and wonderful ways in their lives. I do tend to keep up with myspace a bit more than anything else since I have family there so you can always reach me there: www.myspace.com/cayliestorm Caylie
