Used to run a stable and live on a farm, now I am back into banking for awhile. Still have horses and love animals.

Being a single mom... sometimes it sucks

Kylie is a great daughter but she's 15. It is so hard sometimes to be the one and only provider, disciplinary, motivator, and support person. There really isn't anyone else except for my brother who comes to visit on weekends sometimes.

Working full time and trying to manage bills, the house, the horses and a teenager. Okay I am a little stressed, a little used up, frustrated and taken for granted at times.

I have to be firm and stern, setting boundaries and giving the nudges at the right time and in the right direction. I feel like sometimes I am in a row boat rowing against the current with a boat load of people and I'm the only rowing, the only one trying to keep everything a float.
