Summer Vacation??

We are going on a summer vacation starting tomorrow morning (Saturday) and lasting until...Sunday evening. Woo Hoo! We are party animals :)

We got invited to go down to San Antonio for the weekend. This is the weekend the Dallas Cowboys have training camp and it is open to the public. The boys are going to LOVE IT!! Us girls...well, I think we might do some window shopping. Lord knows the budget doesn't allow for real shopping :(

It will be fun, none of us have ever been to San Antonio so maybe it will be a teaser of a future (longer) vacation.

We are sharing a room with another couple...6 people in one room...should be interesting.

Wish me luck!

I came across a picture on Facebook today of someone who changed my life forever. It's funny how something can spark a memory and take you back to a certain time and place. Make you become obsessed with finding more information. Make you want to...well, destroy everything they have. Make you not want to be a better person.

I am completely sick to my stomach right now and don't know how to shake these feelings.

So I will focus on the good in my life. Focus on the things I have overcome and know that I survived.

I love my husband and my family. I am truly blessed with the things I have in my life.


kinda weird

It's kinda weird right now. I almost feel as though maybe the medication isn't working. I feel myself wanting to do nothing but sleep. I feel myself drawing inward. Nothing spectacular is going on right now that has me extra overwhelmed....I'm just really sleepy.

Problem here is that I can't take a whole pill to try to combat this problem...because well a whole pill makes me sleepy. See the problem?

Perhaps all of this is because our favorite monthly guest is about to make an appearance...who knows. Maybe this is just my hormones running amuck and the medicine is doing it's best.

Good news...i'm not a crabby crazy lunatic. So I guess its working. Now...I think i might crawl under my desk and take a little cat nap.

OMG...my kids are hairy. I mean gross kinda hairy!

The Boy has hair "everywhere" and has for a while now, but ugh! I'm not ready for that.

To make matters worse...The Girl...has started to get hair under her armpits. GROSS!!!! EWWWWWW!!! She's only 9?!?!?!!? Really? So now I have to figure out when she is supposed to start shaving. That is just crazy scary.

She finally noticed it this weekend....she's amused by it. Her dad is a little bothered that we are closely coming up on this stage of her life...

WHOA!! April 29....i'm a bad blogger

Holy moly i'm a bad blogger. Ok, let's update and get this show on the road

It's been two months since I started this medicine...and I feel like a normal person. Well, I feel like what I think a normal person might feel like.

The good side: I don't feel stressed out, I don't feel like a lunatic, I have a LOT more patience with everyone, I guess the best way to describe me now is...eh, whatever. I'm not a zombie or drifting along in a fog...I just really don't care one way or the other. It really is kinda nice, because now when the hooligans are loud and obnoxious, I just kinda watch them and laugh with them. The Man is now the one that does most of the yelling at them. It's kinda nice not being the one that flips out all the time. Not that he flips out, he just gets aggravated...and I don't :)

The bad side: The medicine makes me very sleepy. A whole pill makes me struggle to stay awake and I yawn all day long, but is GREAT for the appetite control. A 1/2 a pill doesn't make me sleepy but doesn't curb my appetite either. So as the doctor says, 1/2 dozen one way 6 the other. I guess you have to pick your battles right?

I love it. I sleep better. I feel better. I think better. Good grief...so this is what it feels like huh?

The kids are already so incredibly bored staying at home this summer...so i think that we might try the library this weekend and the arts and crafts store...i refuse to buy anymore games...their brains are turning to mush.

We have spent most weekends out by the pool or over at someone else's house by the pool. It's freakin HOT in Texas...that's really the only place to be :)

Photography is picking up again for the summer...I have already booked a few weddings and the family portraits and senior portraits are starting to pick up as well. Busy Busy girl!!
