I have really been trying to turn a new leaf and improve life for my family. I have worked so much for so many years, and I really think that because of this my kids have missed out on a lot. I haven’t been there enough to encourage them to get involved in academic and extracurricular activities and I really want to change. I want my children to have everything that other American children have, so I’ve been looking for ways to enrich their lives. I discussed things with my boss and told him that I wouldn’t be able to work as many overtime hours anymore. Luckily he was very understanding and gave me a better schedule. One of the things I started looking into for the kids is Bluff City satellite internet so that they could have more access to education and the outside world. I am also looking for other activities I can get them involved in like music classes and organized sports. I think that now that they have the encouragement they need things will get better quickly. They seem really happy that I am home more now, so at least it’s a start.
