So high school was finished for me, and I now had to make it in the "real" world. Funny how we say that, "REAL" world. We forget that we also had 18 years in the real world prior to this. I guess it is all in how you mean it?
My first job after school was, server at Kettle. I worked overnights, and had very little knowledge about it. Eventually, I went on to work at HEB with my mother. My time at HEB brought on a whole new world. It was short time lived, but I worked there. You see that was where I met my sons father, Cory. On March 15, 1999, my son Collin was born, I was 19. While I was pregnant with my son, I went to work at Reading China and Things. Worked there till my son was born, then left. Not long after that I went to work for HEB again as a Cake Decorator. I believe I took my mother's spot, as she was a cake decorator also. HEB was short lived again, and so I moved on with the rest of my life.
Unfortunately, I have had many jobs, probably too many to count on six hands. I have also been one who has searched for my place in the world. I have gone in and out of friendships, few have stuck around for me. Kimberly has been the only one who has put up with me throughout the years.
Well the years pass by, then one day I learned I was pregnant again. I was going to school at that time to be a chef. What a joke!! A chef!! (The indepth veiw of this will be added later, when I talk of my children) On March 11, 2004, Gage Pearson Howard was brought into this world as healthy as God allowed him to be. I gave him up for adoption. The hardest thing I could ever do, but I did it, again, I will never look back and wonder.
Moved on from that experience, and finally found, what many people say, was "my calling," Massage Therapy. So I finally got it together and went to school, again. School lasted about 3-4 months, and then I graduated. Two months after that, guess what? I was preganant AGAIN!!!! I guess maybe I was to be a baby machine also, I don't know? On February 22, 2007, Crista Renee Woodard was born. A healthy baby girl, who has since been a joy in my life.
This is my life in a nut shell. A few points will be addressed over time, that I feel should be something of great importance.
