We all have those days, the ones where the past just lingers in your mind. The things you should have, could have, would have done....and I have to say I am the queen of second guessing myself. The last week has been just one of "those" weeks. It seems only common that when one thing goes wrong, it all spirals out of control. From personal matters, to stuff with work......you start to wonder what exactly has brought you to this point. The point where you are ready to throw in the towel. It has been 11 months now since we said we were going to get out of this town. Our 8 month goal gone.....our 1 year goal fast approaching. When will it end? Today I am desperately trying to find the answers for the questions I have. How do I get rid of everything, when I can't focus one one thing? Where do we go, when all I want is to not be here? I know that no one but me can answer those questions, but I also know we all have those struggles in our lives, and honeslty, I am completely open to ideas!

Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
