Family history

I’ve decided to do a family tree in my spare time. This project I’ve taken on is massive and might take years to complete but I’m up for the challenge. This family tree will take a lot of research and time but I really don’t mind. I will have to search every data base there is for everyone in my family and my husbands family. With my husband’s family it will be a bit more trickier but If I need information for his side of the family I’ll I have to do ask him. He thinks I’m over my head with this project I have taken on but I don’t care about what others think. I’m curious who is in my family. For instance, If there is anyone famous in my family. I’ve signed up for a website to kick start it off and I’ve only been doing this project for a few days and I’ve got a lot of information to work with so far.

The website I’m working through to do my family tree is difficult to navigate but I’ll figure it out.

Wish me luck and I’ll keep my readers up dated on my progress. Look for further posts.

Breaking the law

I found this on the daily prompt for inspiration; It’s called breaking the law.

Think about the last time you broke a law ( a big one, not just ripping the tags off your pillows). Were you burned , or did things turn out for the best?

There are two stories under this category. First, I was fifteen and dating a much older man. One summer night we went camping with friends (remember I was living in the states at the time) and we were all under age except a couple of adults ( not much role models themselves) and we got very high and extremely drunk. Just our luck the police did  a patrol in our camp ground where we were and you guessed it, we got busted and taken home to our parents in the back of the police car. My parents didn’t do much but a week later I had to go to court and the judge was cruel. Since it was my first offence, he gave me six months probation and a hundred and twenty hours of community service and if I behaved for six months and did the community service, he would wipe the slate clean. pretty much it wouldn’t show up in my file or any place else. I also had to see a probation officer once a week. I had to do on the spot drug testing with all this. I learned my lesson the hard way, that drugs and alcohol don’t get you anywhere and to this day I don’t drink or do drugs.

The second story is: I forged someone’s check and I got caught but luckily no one pressed charges but I lost my job at the time. Stealing only puts in trouble. No more of that for me.

I’m no perfect person we all make mistakes and we learn from them. Even If it means breaking the law and learning from it.

You don’t need to break the law to learn from the mistakes. My advice is don’t get in trouble with the law it’s not worth it.

Reflection time

It’s the end of the year again and it’s time to reflect on what we have accomplished this year. The memories we made with our families and friends. The good times and the bad ones. having wonderful memories and the stories that are funny or teaches a lesson is priceless and we can be thankful for what we have. As we start looking forward to a new year we can look forward to making new memories and new goals. I always look forward to the coming new year and watching my family grow and enjoying the memories that come with that. I love watching my family accomplish their goals. every year is a new beginning so let’s make the most of it.
