I said I’d blog yesterday. But the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
I’m fighting a cold and emotions. But, with the exception of stopped up sinuses, I’m managing fairly well. My mom may be getting better, but that’s a whole other paragraph. My girls are doing well, thank you for…
Bless your heart …my mom who acts much like yours….has the problem that I have someone and she doesn’t …. Gets mad if I talk to Bruce sometimes ….
I am tired so tired. Please pray for me. My mom has been sick…real sick (subconsciously I think it has something to do with the 1 year anniversary of dads death and her having trouble dealing with that) the kids have been couped up on the house and juggled around and they are tired. Today I am within 2 minutes of house when I get call from mom that our puppy and Payton had an accident and puppy was struggling to breath. I rush puppy to er vet and he has blood in chest they are giving him lasix prednisone and vitamin k tonight and he should be fine ID he makes it through night but no guarentee he will make it! And btw Shan do you know anyone that does bankruptcy law in Oklahoma?
So this weekend was a first for me…..we went camping. We went to Robert S Kerr Lake and met my husband sister and her husband and their 12 year old boy and 16 year old girl. We had tons of fun…I even built a fire by myself (so I cheated I put wood on the fire that appeared to be dead from the morning before and poked around at it until my wood caught on fire. It worked I had heat. The kids slept in the sister’s camper….Bruce and I slept in one tent and the 16 year old slept in a tent. Payton caught his first fish. And everyone was amazed that I had not gone into Sallisaw and got a hotel room….(I knew I would never find my way and the gates lock at 10….lol) It was nice to get away. It was nice to leave mom for 2 days. I worried about her….but we all made it. Yea!!!!
I must admit, I the ultimate fag hag have never watched glee….I even own the first season on DVD still have not watched it. Biggest loser premiered tonight and it always makes me want to lose weight now if I just had the follow through…..I did catch Hawaii 5 0 and it was good. I was a big brother junkie so glad new tv is coming on!!!
I love all of autumn. Football, crisp air, just the feeling in the air! I am looking forward to fall this year. I had so much going on last year I all but missed it. Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of Shanna’s death. I miss her so much yet still talk to her often. ( now if her husband would quit hitting on me) oops did I type that out loud? I also changed jobs this week kinda. I have been at the same desk for 15 years and I have changed divisions. I don’t always deal well with change!!
So just to spill all my tea…. I met Bruce in October we had our first date October 17. Mind you at this point I am 32 and a virgin. I know crazy… So as it goes I lost my virginity on Halloween was evidently pregnant by thanksgiving and married by Christmas (dec 10) unconventional but it has worked
I have been so quiet lately I know and the only way I have time to post now is I am laying down with emaleigh while she goes to sleep. Payton turns 6 tomorrow, I can hardly believe it!!! He was born on mine and bruce’s 8 month anniversary … Oops. Shannon do you know that story?
This must be your way of making us all blog Shannon! It was so much easier before…lol I so rarely get a chance to listen to music….I know I am odd…but I rarely have the chance. I did follow the link and loved the song!! And I am jealous of the Rascal Flatts tickets! I almost got to go to Lady Gaga last night and at the last minute my friend’s husband decided to go with her….lol. My kid’s are in the middle of their small town vacation bible school tour. They are currently attending their 3rd one this summer 6:30-9 at night….yes! Sounds horrible since I work during the day but they stay with my mom (and my husband….lol) you get the point…they stay with my mom and they are BORED. So VBS does help. I should have read my first post before I added this one, did I tell you all about the turtles? We live in Wellston and the annual Wellston fair with turtle races is the big event of the year. The last couple of years we have not found turtles because they are in high demand for the big event. This year a friend at work brought me two turtles last week. The turtle race is August 27th. Hmmmm what to do with two turtles til Aug. 27th. You guessed they are free roaming my house. My inside cat and dog think I am nuts but they have left the turtles alone since I put them there. The turtles are pretty good at hiding but I am sure that people would wonder why I have random peaches laying around my house. Although yes one of them will only eat meat? last night my son fed him a McDonalds hamburger patty. I think he is a confused turtle!!
LOL together if you can call it that….but hey we are here. I have so missed Shannon’s blogs and the feeling of having a close group of friends from around the country that I could catch up with everyday.
Wow, life since our last blog….hmmm I dont remember when that was but I have had one hell of a past 10 months for sure.
September 9 my best friend Shanna died. Shannon knew her also. Her funeral was September 14th and my mom and dad both went into the hospital the next day. Dad was released 3 days later. Mom was in for about 6 weeks and came home with her left leg amputated below the knee. So she came home around the end of October. End of October it came to my attention that my husband had relapsed on an addiction to pain killers. He is now doing suboxone therapy and doing great. Early November someone called DHS and said my house was messy so I had to go through a home inspection. Guess what I came out fine. Yes it was not spotless my husband had watched the then 3 year old and 5 year old by himself for 6 weeks. However, it was not horrible. The main problem being the weekend before the complaint I said man this house is a junkyard. Well the first thing DHS does is talk to the children and what did my lovely 5yr old say proudly about how is house looked? Of course, he said it looks like a junkyard. So got that out of the way. My dad who had been given 1-5 years to live with his heart in 1992 and 5 years to live with prostrate cancer in 1997 passed away February 2. And of course even with all the extra time we got it was still unexpected. Luckily my husband kids and I all lived with my parents to help take care of them or we would have been moving there now. Mom had another toe amputated two weeks ago, she has a total of 4 left. I know I have had a horrible year but most of the time I still have a smile on my face. I know God will not give me more than I can handle. Yesterday bothered me….Shanna’s husband posted a pic of her babies birthday cake. Shanna and I were pregnant together during my first pregnancy and her last pregnancy. We had our babies 3 weeks apart. And while I know she is in a better place….it hurts me for her that she wasnt here for Jeri’s sixth birthday.
My home life is going good and my marriage, I think it is, I will let you know when I actually have time to talk to my husband. Emaleigh turned 4 and a bitch all on the same day I think. She wants to do what she wants to do when she wants to do it and how she wants to do it. My opinion does not count and is not wanted. I swear if she was the first she would be the only. Cannot wait for this child to become a teenager. I think I should plant some pretty roses in front of her bedroom window so they will be big and thorny by that time. The other day she held her brother hostage with a water hose outside. Yep fun times ahead. Payton played t-ball if you can call it that. He went to all the games at least. He would much rather play with doll furniture and design houses. I do have some hope left he thinks my female cousin looks “sweet” as in hot.
