11:15 a.m.I was just perusing the web and stumbled across a good book interview, and contest, for the new fiction book, on a FXS family, by Maureen Lang, The Oak Leaves. Check it out here!
Matt didn’t hate me when I picked him up yesterday. I was happy. I did notice that the 3rd shot gave him a nice little bruise. So that was probably what made him so devastated. He leaves today for a weekend with his Granna & Poppa. I’ll get him home Monday evening.
Rachel and I are going to have some mommy-daughter time. She was making out a list last night of what we should do. Everything started with “go shopping.”
Tomorrow at 3 we get to pick up my step-son, Austin. I’m stoked. I miss my step-kids so much. We get Lauren the following Saturday because she has camp this upcoming week.
My brother and his wife are coming up to visit this weekend too. They had their first baby in January and I still haven’t had a chance to see him yet. So I’m really excited about seeing my first nephew!!
And I have been married for 11 months today. It still feels strange sometimes but I love being married. I had single mommed it so much in the past that it takes some getting used to having someone lend an extra hand. I still feel guilty when I ask him for help with something. When I had surgery in March it about killed me to have him doing everything. I love being cared for though. After childhood years of going from one home to another to a very unstable 20′s it’s nice having that unconditional love. I thought that I would never get to know what it felt like.
My bff is heading for her annual mission trip to Guatemala. I am never happy about her going. I worry about their unstable government and natural disasters. They just had an earthquake hit there! But I know she loves it to the very core of her soul. And I just know one day she is going to 1) come back with a newly adopted child (or two) or 2) not come back at all.
Well, I better get my booty to work. My system crashed so hopefully its back up!!
