Gloomy Day

Well what a gloomy day outside today. It is cold and rainy and I am not really feeling it all that much. Another day stuck inside with the kids. Have you ever noticed on glommy days people attitudes are totally different. They seem to be gloomy as well. Well I am feeling gloomy. Sometimes I feel like I'm being punished, am I the only one who feels that way? Really the only thing that can turn my frown upside down is the smile from my kids. They truly bring so much joy into my life (even when they drive me up the wall). I know my other mommies out there know what I am talking about.

On the upside, Jocelyn is being recognized as "Student of the Month" for her kindergarten class next week!

We are so proud of her, she has changed in so many positive ways since school has started. She is a much confident child. She is excited to get up in the morning and get ready for school. I know this will only last for so long (before she ends up hating school LOL) but I am enjoying the whole experience. I don't want my babies to grow up anymore!

So right now my gloomy day is okay just talking about my kids makes me feel so much better!

3.26.11-Saturday Sorrows

So where did the spring weather go??? Last week and earlier this week we were in at least the 60s. Today barely 40 and tomorrow they are calling for snow! What the heck happened???

I'm sitting here freezing my toosh off!

I really want the nice weather to come back and stay!
On another note with this weather, it looks so depressing outside. And I swear it is effecting me in someway shape or form.
I started to cry because my husband was at work. I mean cry like you just told me there really isn't a Santa Claus.
I know I shouldn't openly admit about myself crying, but I need to get it out. It is super weird.
I need some fresh air, but not today, it's too cold out!
Also I have to say, that I am a much happier person with the recent changes I've made in my life.
I've ex-ed out certain negative energy and people, and have to say never felt better.
I just couldn't deal with that drama anymore.
Yay for that!

I really miss having a best friend. It is kinda sad, I feel like I can't really talk to anyone. Dont get me wrong I have friends (who I talk about things to) but I miss having a girlfriend, someone who will be there for me no matter what is going on. Someone to text just because, I just need that BFF thing again.

A girl needs a BFF especially when she gots kids, geez adult converation is needed in this corner here!.

I thought I would just vent about needing a best friend.

Well I have to say I had a pretty good weekend. My husband was home friday through sunday. Friday he called out of work because of another stupid flat tire! But who cares after it was changed I spent time with him. Which was much needed. I feel as if we never get time together (alone or even with our kids in tow). Sometimes he barely gets home in time to see the kids before they are off to bed.

But the weather was nice here as well Friday and Saturday was in the 70s and then Sunday 50s.

Well on Sunday we had our family pics taken, and they came out amazing...another reason I enjoyed my husband being home.

here is a pic...

Wow it has been almost a week since my last post. Well nothing really has been going on in the week since my last post.

But within the last month I had to replace another tire. Yup another freaking screw in my tire! I dont got money flowing out of places :(

The only thing about getting the new tire is that my husband got to take off work on friday (so 3 day weekend). I feel like I barely get anytime with him these days, which sucks because we love spending time together and he loves spending time with his babies.

Well on the good note...tomorrow we are getting family pictures done. This is the first time we are getting pictures done. That is kinda sad but I'm so excited. I kinda wish the temps would be alittle warmer for our beach shoot but I'm so excited!!!!!!!!

Happy Anniversary to me and my husband! 3 years down and a lifetime to go! :)
Well today we took our babies to the zoo, and enjoyed the 70 degree weather. And next Sunday we are getting family pictures done! FINALLY!!!
But I am going to blog about something other then the Anniversary thou...
We have come to the realization that basically really we only got each other. Other family members say they are there but really all they do is tell lies and have broken promises. Years of lies can't make things better. That is why things are the way they are. And maybe if a person could think freely then letting a fly on the wall dictate their life. Time and time again have we been screwed and of course we let everything just brush by, but forget that now. We aren't going to anymore. I guess that is the price we have paid and other people in the family have paid, and has caused a huge rift.
I don't care if someone reads this and doesn't like it...I don't care. You mean nothing to me.
Take it how it is...I'm done holding my tongue.
How can someone call a person their "father-in-law" but not be married or have the last name? Really he meant so much to you, then why don't you call your "mother in law" that is right she means nothing to you, she's dead to you...hmm...really...okay
Okay I think I'm done ranting for now! Maybe I will continue later

He will do anything

This is my little family! And I have to say I truly appreciate my husband for everything he does for us. After the birth of our second child, I returned from maternity leave and went back to working 40 hrs a week. Well 1 day our car at the time decided it was going to bite the dust and not work anymore . My job told me that not having a working car was not an excuse to not be at work (even thou I had 2 kids and lived about 45 minutes away from my job). So they decided to let me go, and I became a Stay at home mom.
So I have been a stay at home mom for almost 2 years now. And I totally appreciate what my husband does everyday. He goes to work, works his tail off, even at the cost of not spending the most time with the children. Some nights he gets off right at their bedtimes,and he is gone to work in the morning before they wake up. He has had to work weekends. Not to long ago he worked almost 20 days in a row without a day off!
I know it bothers him that he doesn't get the time with the kids, but I know the kids understand that daddy is working his butt off for them everyday. I may not get to spend that much time with him either and I complain about it a lot, but in the end he is doing what he can for our family. He is just a wonderful man. And I couldn't be more proud of him!

So here is a picture of my husband holding our first born. As I have said before we found out we were going to be parents while we were in high school. Well our first daughter was born a few months after I graduated High school.
I have to say I have never seen a man so excited about being a father! My water broke at 11:30pm and he just got off work that night at around 7 pm..after working 10+ hours. I had to wake him out of a dead sleep. This being our first child, I was super nervous. He seem to be calm about it all. He was my distraction during my epidural, he help me relax and got me to sleep for 3 hours before delivering. Once it was time for the moment to push and welcome our daughter, he was my coach.
The best moment for me was when after pushing for only 15 minutes, he cried with excitement to see his daughter.
He has done such a great job as a father, and couldn't ask for anything more!

The start of our lives together

So this is us together at my senior prom. I have to say, I got one good looking husband!

During prom, I was expecting our first child. She was not planned but finding out I was pregnant was a true blessing in disguise.

We have made it through the hardships of being teen parents. And have done a pretty good job as parents.

I know that I could not see myself with anyone else, and have children with.

My husband is my rock, he is my knight in shining armor, he is my everything.

He is my best friend and would never regret any of the choices we have made in the 7 years we have been together.

With it being my wedding anniversary this sunday, I thought it would be a good idea to dedicate this whole week on my husband and I.
So in this picture this is us in high school. I was 17 & he was 18. And we have been going strong ever since.
I have to say he wasn't the typical guy I would date, and also when we first met, I didn't like him very much. But he grew on me.
I just want to say that I love my husband very much. And I will end this brief post with a quote.
"Love is like ghosts; people talk about it, but few have truly seen it." And I know this is love!

I wanted to share how I'm such a proud mama!
Jocelyn is in kindergarten. She started alittle late this year due to some insurance issues. About a month late.
The teachers were alittle concerned with were she would be with the rest of the class. She had a hard time opening up and speaking in class, being that it was so new to her.
Well after having a parent-teacher conference, Jocelyn has made a complete 180. She was considered below grade expectations. Well she just received her recent progress report about 2 months after the conference, and she is at/or above grade expectations in everything!
I am one proud mama! Great job Jocelyn!!!

Feeling buried

My household is finally getting over being sick and laundry hasn't been on the top of my list of things. So today I did about 5 loads of laundry :( I felt so overwhelmed by the amount of clothes, towels, etc.
I seriously thought I was being buried alive in clothes. Why haven't the famous laundry fairies not come to my aid?
Doing so many loads in 1 day and having to fold made me realize my children have way too many clothes! Especially my son (who is almost 6 months old). What happened to me and my husband's clothes. I swear it seems like sweats and tshirts is our outfits of choice.
At least I know I wont have to wash laundry for a couple of days. :)

Always feeling like someone is looking over shoulder

I have been having a feeling that people can't be original and come up with things on their own.

I feel like I can't say anything because someone will jump on it and do the same exact thing.

And what is really funny they act like it is their orignial own thought.

Ex. Me buying a shirt, you going out the same day and buying the same shirt (after I showed you the shirt).

Really you are that original, correct?! NOT SO MUCH!

I really want "these" people to seriously get their own lives, and stop trying to copy mine.

I could go on forever about this subject, but I think it would only fuel my fire.

So I thought I would post about HRM. If you dont know what HRM is then let me tell you.
Obviously I meet that requirement
1.being i live in the Hampton Roads Area
2. being how I am a Mommy

Anyways..I joined HRM in January 2010. Wasn't too sure how it would be and me being a shy person, I didnt think I would do much on the site with doing playdates and such. Well I think the turn for me was when the Virginia Beach group needed a moderator. I applied, and of course the admin gave me a chance. It forced me to get out of my shell and start meeting people. And I have to say I've met some amazing women.

This group really helped me in a time of need, when I had just delivered Anthony. I was provided dinner for a whole week by some of the members. To not have to think about cooking for a week meant the world to me.

After my time as moderator, I decided to go on and become a manager. In October 2010, I was given the chance to be HRM's first UGM (UGM=User Group Manager). And let me tell you, I loved that position. It was a true fit for me. And I believe I did a great job as UGM. Well at least hope.

And now I have been named Assistant Chapter Manager. I was on the fence about this position, I didnt know if I was good enough for the position. But of course I had some of my dear friends speak to me and tell me how they trusted me in this new position. And I applied. Having people tell me that they trust, and are confident in me and my abilities, really touched me.

Basically, I'm saying HRM has saved me in a way from being a complete loner. And I have made some great friends!
