When Amber asked me to do this I was at a loss for what to write about I could write something deeply personal but when it comes down to it I am insanely private. I guess it's just I worry what people would think Maybe they would assume I am fishing for pity. Or maybe they would think my story is fabricated.
Instead of writing something that could delve into a depressing post I think I will just talk about my daughter. Isabella was born the day before my birthday on August 20, 2007. It was oddly cold that day.
Since that day everything changed. Being a child who had to grow up too quickly I never want her to go through that. So sometimes instead of cleaning up the house we sit around and cuddle. We slack off on cooking elaborate meals and share PB&J. We watch cartoons and sit in our jammies.
Not to say I slack off as a mom but instead of focusing on what is important in the adult world maybe I would rather focus on the most beautiful treasure in my world. My house may not be spotless and my hair may be a mess but I have the most important reward of all. The love of my little girl.
So this did turn into something personal...
and yes... of course thats a RockerByeBaby blanket... ;)
i love you... and im so sorry i have been neglecting you... dont take it personally I have just been SOOO busy... and my lovely readers... i appreciate every one of you for sticking around through the chaos... for those of you that didn't hear me ranting on Twitter... the owners of the house we were renting deciding to stop paying their mortgage... and put our rent in their pocket (enter mean name here)... this leaving are very busy family of for in a bad spot... one day, we got a note on our door saying the house was being sold... a week later the house sold to a private investor... and that night, we got a note on the door saying to call... we did... and had to be out in a week if we wanted any compensation for our troubles... so, we dropped everything and packed and moved... ugh... was a horrible week (10 day process i think)... just total chaos... orders were/are backed up... kids were crabby... mom/dad were crabby... and thankfully nana flew out to save the day... uh... week. Dunno what we would have done without her help... so here we sit now... for our second night totally settled into our new place (that we totally love). Its kinda one of those blessing in disguise kinda situations... way happier here... way more productive... been walking with the boys every day... its just great. So (mean name) house owners... thanks for totally screwing us over so we could get our of your crappy house... Ill post some pictures of the new place later... we have tried really hard to really put this place together :) I like it!
