Happy V-Day!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  I hope your day was full of love and happiness!  The girls and I sent Ben his Valentine's Day package last week and it arrived today, I couldn't have timed it any better actually if I had procrasinated any longer about sending it it would have been late.  Like everything lately I am not really motivated to do a whole lot of anything......I woke up at 1:30 am this morning trying to figure out what I was going to send to daycare with the girls, yeah I forgot about their Valentine's Day party at daycare.  But because I am sometimes ahead of the game I found some Valentine's treat bags bought on clearance last year, filled them with candy and we were golden!

I received 2 dozen 21 red roses from my husband, they are absolutely gorgeous and smell amazing!  Thank you!!!
And now the girls are in bed and I am enjoying this.........

Cheese, Crackers and Wine!
 Not having a pity party, just enjoying my quiet time!

Not the best but I can't find my little camera and it's really hard to take a self portrait with the big camera!
 Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

Sorry I'm Not Sorry

Months ago my Sister blogged a post titled "Sorry I'm Not Sorry."  I have been meaning to copy her for a long time and I have finally gotten around to it.

I know I have been MIA for the past couple of months.  My life has been a roller coaster and I have been kind of a disaster.  I have been angry, sad, happy, distant, loving and cold.  There have been many comments made most of which hurt my feelings, but today I'm Sorry I'm Not Sorry.
  • I want to be by myself, I don't want company.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • My kids are the most important things in my life, no one else.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • I enjoy time to myself, like all by myself, no phone, no email, no texting, no talking to anyone.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • I can't relax if my kitchen counters are dirty.  Learn to deal with it.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • I cry.  A lot.  And sometimes it is for no reason.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • I finally like love makeup, cute clothes and jewelry.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • I put on makeup, fix my hair, and dress cute for myself, no one else.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • I love my family and I love spending time with them.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • I would rather have tea parties than go to the movies.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • I curse like a sailor, I can drink with the boys and on occasion I will take some of your Copenhagen.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
  • Love me or hate me, I don't care.  Sorry I'm not sorry.

This next year is going to be a huge challenge.  I know this, there is no denying it.  But I plan to "own" who I am this year.  Love it or hate it, I am me, I won't let anyone make me feel guilty for feeling the way I do.  So you know what?  I'm sorry I'm not sorry.

Hi everyone!  I have been MIA for a while, life has been crazy!  So I thought I would let you all know what has been going on.

My husband left 2 weeks ago to begin his deployment.  So I have been adjusting to life as a single mom again and the girls are trying to adjust to not having their dad home, which isn't going very well :(  The day before he left Taylor got sick, luckily it was only a 24 hour bug and I only had to take 1 day off of work.  But unfortunately both of the girls are sick again with fevers.
Last weekend was so nice, it was 70 degrees so we got to play outside, unfortunately this past week has been horribly cold and we have been stuck inside.  We have cabin fever something awful!

I am going to try to be better about blogging again, I think it will be a good outlet for me.  I haven't done anything crafty in so long because I haven't felt like it, I guess you could say I have been preoccupied and anxious about the deployment.  So my goals for the next month is to make a new wreath for my front door and get started planning Kielyn's birthday.

So for now we are taking it one day at a time!
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
