Single___Parent___Life











I am so excited I got my grade and feedback on My Big Project tonight and I couldn’t believe it. I got full credit for both parts and this is the feedback I got from my teacher about it……………

“absolutely excellent job on your Genogram assignment! Your Genogram by far was one of the most comprehensive, clear and organized that I have seen. I really enjoyed reading your family story and for not being close to your entire family you definitely had a lot of information that you have acquired and gathered. I think that you discovered some very interesting patterns within your family. It sounds like your Grandma’s passing was a catalyst for a lot of developing dynamics. And I am sorry for the loss of your father, it sounds like you and your kids were very close with him. I hope that that project gave you some deeper insight into your family and helps you continue to develop your family dynamics in a healthy and balanced way!”

I was shocked, I expected to get a passing grade but not a very high grade maybe a high C or low B for effort because I did have a lot of information but not a lot of dates and things. Plus I did the diagram with word just kind of free drawing it all the best I could and adding information the best way I could figure out how. I then wrote all that I could think of and knew about my family and who all was involved even though I didn’t have dates for a lot of it. When I checked my grades and seen I had full credit I was happy but when I read the note that was left with the grade I was blown away. Never did I expect that at all. At least there was something positive to end my night on.



{March 8, 2017}   Big Project Update

I finished my project but I think I was in left field on what we were supposed to do and what I did. When I read it I took it to mean something different than what I did. I am not sure how it is all going to turn out for my grade. I read it again when I was turning it in because I had 3 parts to it that had to be turned in and I was trying to figure out where to turn in each part. That is when I released what she was asking for and what I understood were two different things. There wasn’t a lot I could do at that time but I think I kind of saved it and made it what she wanted but with way more detail than what she wanted. So I will probably get counted off on that part. It was just an over all hard project because of the way my family is. I will be happy with whatever grade I get because I did my best to do what she wanted and gave her all the information that I had that she asked for. To much detail is better than not enough right? I know not always and this maybe one of them times. But what is done is done. I think it will be okay. I should go look I haven’t been on since we turned them in maybe I have a grade already. I am kind of scared to look just because I hate to get a not so great grade on something even though I am okay with it because I know I did my best. If that makes since. I haven’t been on line to catch up here or even look at my grades since I was on here last and turned in my project Sunday.

I just looked one the small part I got 20 out of 20. She left a note saying that not everyone has access to their family history but that the idea of the project was to get us to look at what we have and don’t have or what and that she was looking foreword to reading through mine. In this part we were talking about what we thought of the project what we learned and things from it or what. I put that I had to just look up public record and go by what I already knew but didn’t have dates and things for a lot of it. So here’s to hoping for a decent grade on the project it’s self. One good thing it was only 120 points not 220 like it said, it was a miss type I guess. I got 20 so far.



{March 4, 2017}   My Big Project

My big project is due tomorrow at 1159 pm, I have hardly done anything to it. I don’t know if I wrote about this week or not with being sick and not on much. Anyway it is a family tree of sorts but they want much more information than just names on a family tree. I have to put who smoked, who drink, did drugs, abuse, mental illness, divorce, weddings, miscarriages, disease and all that kind of information on it. I have to go three generations back so from my grandparents down to me and my kids. I could use my moms side of the family but there isn’t anyone going to talk about any of that kind of stuff. I know a lot more about my dads side but not all the details or dates for some of it and there is no one to really talk to about it. I don’t know or talk to most of my dads side of the family and all the ones I knew and talked to have passed away the last 5 years or so. I am going to diagram it the best I can and write the story the best I can and put in there that I don’t have anyone to talk to about it. I hope I get a decent grade as long as what I do have is done like it is supposed to be even if I don’t have a ton of information they want.

It is about 1055 pm and I just got the three little ones to bed. My oldest one has had a movie from the Redbox for a few days now she has wanted to watch but hasn’t been able to. She has been waiting on me to watch it first so I can see if it’s okay for her to watch since it is rated R. I finally just told her to put it in and we will watch it together why I work on my project. I really don’t think it is going to be that bad but with the rating I like to at least watch it with her in case it needs to be turned off. Think the rating is mostly for the drinking and drug use. I am not really worried about it.

I thought I would stop here and check in then get to work. I have to go to different sites and look up different stuff before I can even put this thing all together. I am still hurting like I was yesterday. I got stuck in a parking place at the store today because I got to close to the car on the driver side of me. Then I couldn’t get turned around to see behind me to get off of it very well. I finally had to take my seat belt off, stand up and turn around to see behind me.
