5:40pm. It’s cold and raining. I’m sprawled out on a sofa bed in my parents’ living room. Sounds of Ivy and Rescue Pup fill the background. I miss my husband.1

This weekend, we moved into our new apartment in the city.2 He starts work at his new job tomorrow. The kids and I are back down south until next weekend. My job couldn’t transfer me as fast, so the kids and I have to spend a week at my parents’.

I’m truly hoping that this week will fly by. There’s still lots of unpacking to do. I still have to put up the tree and take JJ to see Santa. Most of all, I’m ready to start a new chapter of my life.

Birthday via Instagram
2:05pm. It’s Hump Day, which also happens to be the midpoint of my vacation. I took the week off of work for my birthday.

Nothing new has been happening in the world… Well, that’s a lie, lol! A lot has been happening. I can’t remember the last time I actually posted on any of my sites. I’m slowing drifting away from the web. I’m slowing drifting away from life. So let me recap. Read more

Been A Long Time…

It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to post. So much has been going on with work and the family. I still haven’t managed to find that perfect work/life balance. It seems as if there aren’t enough hours in the day.

My father-in-law passed away on Memorial Day. I’ve been helping J deal with that. I can’t imagine what it feels like to lose both parents. Daddy Blake will be missed. He’s one of the first in J’s family to accept me wholeheartedly as a part of his son’s life. For that, I will always be grateful.

I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get here next. I have a review to do for Influenster, so maybe by the end of the month.

Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday, lovelies! It’s been a while since my last update. I’m back to work as of last week[1. That deserves a post to itself…]!

I enjoyed my weekend as much as I could. Both Ivy & JJ picked up colds during their first week at daycare. JJ is doing better, but Ivy is pretty miserable at this point. She also has her sickle cell appointment tomorrow. I’m hoping and praying that she does not have it, but we’ll see tomorrow.

I set up the tripod today and took some self portraits and some photos with the kids. I set up a photo blog, so you can view them all over here, if you would like to.

Happy Thursday!

Wow, I’m slipping on updating this blog. I was actually doing really well. I have been pretty busy. I return to work in 10 days, and Ivy still won’t take a bottle. We’ve tried multiple brands and haven’t found one that works yet.

I’m also still looking at daycare options. The one we used before doesn’t have a spot in the nursery and I don’t want to children to be split up[1. Multiple child discount, anyone?]. I’ve made a few calls around town. I have an option for a home daycare, but she works alone and already has 5 month old twins. I’m more concerned about my babies getting the proper attention.

Hopefully something will come through.
