Yesterday was an upsetting day :( My cards went out in the first round of the NCAA tournament. We lost to Morehead and I don't know what was worse losing or listening to all the UK fans...UGHHH!!!!! The past week has been a long one. the kids are doing great and I am just so proud to be their mother. I love them both so very much! There was a devastating 9.0 earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. I don't know how these people will ever move past such loss and destruction. Whole families have been torn apart, homes are destroyed, and the fear over a nuclear meltdown and other health concerns has to be crippling. It really helps to put things in perspective. I am so lucky to have a great job and such wonderful children and a supportive family. There are things that I want for myself and for my children that just don't seem to be in the cards right now but the focus needs to always remain on what we do have instead of what we don't. I hope to have a great weekend with the kids. Hopefully the weather will be nice and we will be able to get outside and get some fresh air. Life is good!!

February Update

 I have been slacking SOOO much on this when I swore I would keep up with it. Well Jenna is five months now and gorgeous and perfect as ever. She is having a blast with her brothers and things are going really well. I got some one on one time with Taylor where he schooled me in bowling LOL and Jenna got some one on one time with her daddy and they went and got her a jumperoo from our friend Jenny J Taylor is doing well in school and currently has TWO loose teeth, he is EXTREMELY excited! Jenna has had some tummy issues but hopefully those will be resolved soon. Work has been insane this week we have already worked nearly 5 days and it’s just Wednesday.  Taylor can’t wait for session to be over so his mommy can pick him up from school. J I love that he misses me but it makes me sad to have to tell him that I will be home late AGAIN.  Taylor had his final basketball game where he did awesome. He got a medal and was so proud! Long story short, we had some good time in February. Lots of busy days and nights.Love you all!

 Feeling GOOD!!!

First things first I am TERRIBLE at the whole keeping up with my blog thing. LOL
I guess I have just been having too much fun. These last few months have been some of the most incredible months of my life. My kids never cease to amaze me. Taylor is becoming such a young man and takes such amazing care of his little sister and Jenna well she is just a princess. Part of me feels like I should give in to the stress and the feeling of being overwhelmed because it would just be easier than picking up and doing what needs to be done but the biggest part of me says HECK NO this is the best time of your life. I have been thinking a lot about forgiveness and the past and the people who mean the most in our lives. Lord knows that I still have lots of time before these thoughts will ever start to come together and make sense but I think the Carrie Underwood song “Lessons Learned“sums it up best…”I'm thankful, for every break in my heart, I'm grateful, for every scar, Some pages turned, Some bridges burned, But there were lessons learned.” One could say I have learned my fair share of lessons of the last couple of years. One may also say I should have learned more from them. I don’t regret the fact that I have a loving forgiving heart I am just trying my best to work on making sure I am doing the forgiving and loving for the right reasons and to the right people for myself and my kids. I guess my point is right now I am positive, and things are great. Jenna is almost 4 months old and in a couple of months my BABY boy will be six. I cannot believe how quickly time flies. These kids are keeping me on my feet for sure but I couldn’t be more proud or excited for our future!! I promise I will try to do better about updating! Love to all of you!
