It’s been many many years since I have sat down and wrote a blog post.

Lots of things have changed. After losing my Grandmother in 2007 I was bad off. The more I thought I had control the less life seemed to go my way. 2010 seemed to be the worst. My migraine’s were out of control, my life was not peaceful and I wasn’t the mom or wife I needed to be. Everytime I turned around there was more drama coming my way.  Finally I talked to my headache dr. and she thought seeing a Psychologists could help work through some things I had going on with my life. So I started seeing a lady and I was starting to see somethings going on around me were so unhealthly for me but OMG my kids were seeing all of this crap too.

I finally had to make a choice of who and what I wanted in our lifes. The drama was the first to go… only problem here was that was my mother and my step dad. I had to decide how I would do this and when. I wrote a letter to them and left it on the counter after we did Christmas with them. The letter stated that I loved them but I could no longer enable them. By driving them places b/c they were drinking, getting calls in the middle of the night b/c one of them was drinking and driving and crashed into a tree, and so on. I was sick and tried of being their parent. I have 2 kids and they are who I need to worry about and do for.

So almost 2 years later I haven’t heard a word from my mother or step dad. They chose drinking! It broke my heart a little… being a child around them I knew I wasn’t high on the list of what’s important to them. It killed me to know not even my kids have a place higher than drinking. I’m not sure what would happen if they did decide to come back after 2 years.

proud… i think

something happened last Friday afternoon with my step dad. Long story short he blew up over something so small that I haven’t been able to get over it. I don’t understand how a 48 year old man can blow up on a 12 year old and then turn around and blow up at me over something. I always feel as though I walk on eggshells with him and for a matter of fact my mom also. My normal reaction would have been to call and kiss @ss… well that ain’t going happen this time. I am going to keep myself from being an @ss kisser. Why do I always have to be the “grown up” with them? For once can’t I be the kid with them?! Hell the last 20 years I have been the grown one but not this time.

I seem to be getting better. Still having headaches every day just not as bad. I got my lab results back and my vit. D is super low, so I get to take a pill for that now. My cholesterol is a bit high, so are my triglycerides… oops!

I am getting sad that school is coming so fast. I’m not ready yet. 14 more days.

The kids and I went to the pool today. Trying to start living better, I swam with them the whole time we were there. When the weathers not so darn hot and humid I am going to start walking again. My mil and I had started walking 2 miles before the heat came. I just wish I would stop craving Rolos already.

I also need to sell 3 female Beagle puppies before I go insane. They are the cutest things ever but us having 9 dogs they need homes fast. When they are gone we will still have 6 dogs, yes I said 6 dogs, no I am not crazy (yet). 😉 I must run and make some flyer’s.

Facebook solved my problem. Now once he’s 13 (the age you are to be when joining) I will let him sign up. He didn’t sign himself up for the page. I think a few girls he knows did. Since facebook took care of the problem I will let it drop.

Dd and I went and got her school supplies today. She went with HSM for her lunchbox and backpack. In 19 days they go back. I go back to subbing this year too! Where did summer break go? I wish they still started school after Labor Day like when I was in school.

We picked up College Road Trip today. Very cute family movie. I can see dh being like that one day very soon. 😉 Well I need to sleep.

Yesterday the kids, hubby and I went to a cookout. It was at the couples house who were here the night dh and I were saved. Some other people from church were there also. The kids swam while we talked. As we were leaving dh was checking his voice mail and some other friends were cooking out and invited us over. I love not having to cook and being with friends just makes it all that much better.

I am starting to get nervous about Tuesday. Not sure why really but I am. The headaches aren’t getting any better. Speaking of ones coming on. Later!

Today was the first time I was able to wear a bra all day long since I fried. It was so bad that it only took 9 days to heal. I did learn to spray down with sunscreen after spraying the kids down tho.

Tuesday was a long day.

Yesterday we had a nice time. My cousin and her 3 girls came to visit at the pool. I haven’t seen them since right before Christmas. They are coming back in 2 weeks. I can’t wait.

Ds and I decided to just do a swimming party. It’s just to freakin hot to do anything else.

shh…

don’t tell ds this but he’s got a cell phone! I can’t wait to see the look on his face. Other than that he’s getting clothes and shoes (nike flip flops and Adidas) from us. The in-laws got him a camo mp3 player. My mom and step dad got him some camo crocs, clothes and a Dale Jr. beach towel. They are also getting him some fishing stuff and a new pole or two.

I started shopping at 10:20 am and finished at 7:00 pm. I so shopped till I dropped. I hope ya’ll are proud. 😉

Dd lost a tooth on the way home tonight. The tooth fairy brought her a cheerleader charm. She still hasn’t made up her mind about pee wee cheerleading… deadlines tomorrow @ 6:00.

Can you believe it? It’s 7:25 am and I am up and just about ready to walk out the door. But can you guess why? People here that really know me know I LOVE to shop and that’s why I am up this early. Ds is getting ready to turn 12 and I am going to the “big city” an hour away to shop the day away. 🙂

The kids are going to spend the day with mamaw and papaw at the river camping. They don’t like shopping and I am fine with that. I’ll let you know what I find.
