It's been a long time. While trying to think of things for my 5 year olds school Time Line project, I decided to look through my old blog for ideas. Boy did that get emotions going!

Last Oct of 2010, My husband told me he wasn't sure if he loved me anymore. It was tough, but we decided we would make our marriage work. In Dec, he told me he wanted a divorce. In Feb I found out he had been having an affair with his boss. He was in love with her. All the late nights at work were actually spent with her at the bar drinking and what not. There is so much more to the story...things that happened throughout this whole time. A lot of mind games. A LOT of lies.

Needless to say, we are in the process of divorce. 14 years down the drain. He ruined a good thing, tore our family apart and is now not even being a good father. He's become a very selfish person that only cares about himself. With his new cool hair, designer clothing, cologne and social life. He's living single life with a bachelor pad. My how people change. I don't even recognize him.

I'm Still Alive!

Wow. It has been a long time!
So much has been going on since my last entry. Kieran turned four Aug 8th, Chloe turned one Oct, 11th and Nevin just turned 13 on Dec, 4th! I have a 13 year old, People!! CRAZY!

Lately I have been going through some very emotionally taxing times. So please send happy energy my way. Hopefully I'll look back at this time and, that was rough, but we made it through and look at us now! :)

Today we went to my friends. We've been doing this every Monday(or try to at least). It's so nice. Her oldest is Nevin's age her 2 middles are Kieran's age and she also has a baby. The boys play, practice guitar and we all have dinner together. LOTS of boy energy but, fun! I'm really enjoying it.

We got our tree tonight(man it's cold out there!) and I'm SUPER excited to decorate it tomorrow!! Yippee!!! I'm like a kid at Christmas. I just love it. I really need to get a move on my shopping and get better at being sneaky with packages being delivered. Kieran insists on opening boxes and we can't have that!

We'll be visiting Santa sooon! I'm not even going to attempt getting a picture with Chloe on his lap. I know she'll want nothing of it. She gets upset with just normal people tak to her...let alone sitting on a creepy looking mans lap ...hehe! Kieran loves Santa, though. I'm excited for him!

Before I go, here are some recent photo's!

I'm once again feeling inspired to go raw. Maybe not 100% raw, but close enough. I tried this about...2 years ago? I failed miserably! So I'm doing more research and looking into going raw while breastfeeding especially. for any raw foodies out it super time consuming to make meals? I'm really worried about that since we lack time for that sort of thing here. Well, baby steps...starting tomorrow. Going for a green smoothie in the morning and fruits and nuts during the day. Also, time to start weaning off the coffee...not looking forward to that. I have a SERIOUS iced latte addiction. Sometimes(well honestly, almost everyday) my day revolves around getting that latte! I'm going to try. Here I go...again. :)

Fourth Of July

We celebrated Independence Day by going to my father in law's house. It was nice to see family and the kids had fun with sparklers and those cool growing snakes(my fave as a kid!). The men set off some cool fireworks too! Oh, only bad part of the night was when I set my thumb on fire! Ouch! FIL had no ice so I kept my thumb on a cold water bottle until we left, then headed to a 24 hour pharmacy for some lidocaine gel and popped some motrin...that helped so much! Yeah, so that happened while trying to light a twentieth sparkler, that was being stubborn.

The weekend before we went to the Spree. A local carnival our city has and ended the day with fireworks! We thought for sure Chloe would be terrified. She's such a sensitive girl and scares easily, but she surprised us and wasn't afraid at all! Just a little jumpy in the beginning. It was a perfect evening!

Hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July!!!

I'll end this post with some pics. My friend made the tutu that Chloe is wearing and of course I made the bows ;).

Father's Day

We had a pretty chilled Father's Day. It was nice!
Kieran made Josh a cute hand print picture and Nevin walked up to the store on his own and bought him T-shirts and socks..hehe! I sent my Dad's card a day late and included some pictures. He bought a cute little outfit for Chloe that says I love Grandpa. So I had her wear it in the pics.
I'm very glad to finally have a relationship with my Father. I'm glad that I'm able to put the past aside and have in in our lives.
