Sorry for the absence...

>> Tuesday, November 9, 2010

Hey everyone!  I do want to apologize for my absence from the blogging world for the past month.  I REALLY try not to post things that will bring my blog down, so instead I haven't been posting at all...I figured that instead of multiple lengthy semi depressing blog posts, I will stick to the short and sweet versions all in one post.  LOL  The following is a list of the good, the bad, and the ugly that has been going on in my life and in my head since the beginning of August. 

1. I got to go to BlogHer '10 with one of my best friends Lis from A Trucker Wife, and we got to drive in a Brand New Chevy Equinox sponsored by Chevy!!

2. That Friday while in New York for BlogHer, I got a call from my mom letting me know that the following morning my grandmother was going in for brain surgery.  She had a hemotoma on each side of her brain that needed to be drained.

3.  Monday after returning from BlogHer we went to see my grandmom in the hospital.  While leaving the hospital at 9:30pm, Bubba B was walking through the parking lot with my mom about 25 yards behind Neil, Princess K and I.  Bubba B was trying to step on my moms shadow, their feet got tangled up resulting in both of them falling.  My mom pretty much fell on top of Bubba B, and when she did, her knee snapped his femur.

4.  My 3 year old energetic, can't sit still for 2 seconds baby boy was in a spica cast for 6 weeks!  Now, if you have never seen a spica cast, (which I hadn't until my baby was wearing one)  He was in a cast up to his ribs, down to his right ankle, and down to his left knee.  He was in a semi sitting position, and had a stabilizing bar connecting his legs around the knee area.

5.  We tried to buy a house so that we could start fresh with things...I SERIOUSLY need to go through everything in this house and get rid of like half of it!  Not only that, but we have equity in this current house that could make us debt free other than house and 1 truck payment...

6.  We failed at buying a house that would have made us debt free because our credit sucks...

7.  I have been holding together the sanity of the family b/c my husband is beyond over his job, SO I have been carrying the added stress on the inside and trying to be positive and keep him out of a funk the whole time he is home...

8.  Princess K finally got her allergy testing done...She is allergic to many things.  We knew she would be because Neil and I have both had allergies since we were very small, and Princess K and Bubba B have them as well...She is now on Singulair and a 20 day round of antibiotics for a sinus infection...

There is more, but that's all I can think of with this migraine...I know things could be TONS worse, and I really have been trying to stay positive with everything that has been going on, but it is seriously getting to the point where staying positive is kicking my butt...

2010 has been a shitty year for everyone I know. It's almost over and I know 2011 WILL be better! Hang in there and I'm always here for you

So sorry for all you are going through! I have missed your writings since you have been away and was wondering where you were! May your Thanksgiving and Christmas be less eventful than the months leading up to them!
Much Love

Don't give up hope! There will be better days ahead. Keep on loving your family and put one foot in front of the other. Some day you'll look back on all of it and talk about it like a distant memory. Your son might even laugh about it then.
We'll be looking for your postings.
