And the Beat Goes On…

It’s been a while since I have been able to just sit down, zone out, and write. I sit in a nearly quiet house, my son sitting opposite me also on a laptop, watching a movie while no doubt keeping his Facebook open. We’ve had interesting news on the homefront, jobwise anyway! Robert has gotten a new job making pizza at Pizza Hut…he loves it. This kiddo and food, I can see it playing an integral part in his future. He’s visiting UNH Thompson school, one of which program involves the culinary field I believe. His friends call him Chef Bentley and the kid loves to cook. I can just see it…black pants, chefs jacket, and pans of fabulous food steaming on the top of the line gas stoves and ovens! Fingers crossed!!

As for me, I am moving onward and upward. There was a position I was hoping would come through as part of my stepping up plan for myself this year. It has come to fruition and include a very comfortable raise…the long term goal being that I increase the money into our household leading to a better saving option that eventually passes on to my kids. Whether it’s too afford another round of driver’s ed for Robby, buying another vehicle which we desperately need right now, or taking a random weekend trip somewhere building on to existing memories full of laughter and pictures, I can provide something new in the coming season for my family. I am so happy…and the work is in line with so many of my personal values. It’s a great fit, a great opportunity, and the highlight is that I get to work with my sister. I’m a happy camper.

Part of the best news is that my oldest son has given up his weakness of “smoking” in the hopes of gaining a great employment opportunity. He has been tired of having to pass on positions knowing he could not test clean. He has decided that his life is going to change, he is going to take his next round of steps to make a big step forward. I’m so proud of him, so encouraged by his decision. I know, especially with his group of friends, how difficult this is proving to be for him. I love it, LOVE IT!

And the beat goes on…the smile, my soul, my heartbeat. The keys to my day both moving forward, the keys being my sons, and each taking a new step towards their future. It’s been a wonderful few weeks, so much energy and positivity! I feel so very encouraged, like so many small pieces are finally coming together for my boys, for their lives, and for mine as well!

Happy Maine Mama! 🙂

    Good for you and yours! I know I’m showing my age, but do they really test for smoking these days! I suppose it provides good motivation to quit, but…. oh my!

      “herbal smokes” i mean…and yes, they do still test. Regardless of the fact that it has become all but legal, it’s still a “federal” offense. That being said, and because we live in Maine, where employment is At Will, the companies that test are also the money makers…so, my son feels it is time for him to man up, make some money, and give up a habit for his own future! Really proud of him, but yes, in today’s world, the testing seems a little much though I understand the company’s logic. Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
