Looking forward to Thanksgiving and to all our holiday fun November and December.

Slowly getting all the Christmas list checked off for kids. Hope everyone had a wonderful day!

Erasing Family

it’s so incredibly sad to poison children’s minds against those who love them. Keeping them away from loving Grandparents not even saying goodbye before moving out of state.

When kids get cut from not only their fathers life but grandparents, aunt, cousins and other siblings it’s disgraceful. Those who are dishonest run far away and isolate those they are trying to convince and makes it easier to live their false fake made up reality when all those who lived the truth aren’t around. I feel so sorry for all the kids and grandchildren kept from their loving family members. I also pray that they don’t repeat the same lies and hateful ways that the controlling narcissistic parent has taught them. Love and truth is the only way to live keep hearts open. Be honest and love those in your lives more than you hate their parent or grandparent do not keep innocent children from receiving the love they deserve. It’s so sad especially in cases when the parent that does this is the one who chose to end marriage who also had an affair with another married person before leaving the marriage who stole cheated and tried to paint the other as the monster to cover up her own guilt.not only kept kids from father and loving grandparents and family members but acted like dad was deadbeat when he not only paid his support and got zero contact with his children but sent gifts that she never gave them cards and letters it’s something I will Never understand. What I think is worse is when parent has a breakthrough with child and they apologize for not standing up for them spend seven months talking to them every day and accepting gifts and saying how much they matter and enjoying the love and support during their pregnancy from their father and step mother and siblings especially since their own mother wouldn’t even take them in while their apartment had mold during her pregnancy or not be considerate when her daughter was experiencing morning sickness was just acting like a spoiled brat and decided to throw a fit guilt her grown daughter until she literally cut her dad our iced him out completely as if all the I love you meant nothing. Let him pay for a trip to visit her and her family and hotel room for them out of town that they never used cancelled last minute to make mom happy. Dropped out of younger siblings lives completely and when Dad contacts just dead silence and never a care about how this hurts him. I just pray this doesn’t become a pattern and it’s not taught to our granddaughter. Saying a prayer for all people suffering from this. Keep loving keep praying and keep your heart and minds open.

It’s been busy so much going on sorry I’ve not been on since Halloween.

Last week my daughter was line leader had snack and share day which was fun. I hit my 250th Class at Pure Barre and celebrated with my friends.

I picked Savannah up early on Friday so my husband and I could get on road by 3:30pm.

My mom watched the kids for ya at our house so we could get away for a couple of nights. We went to one of our favorite spots.

Laguna Cliffs in Dana Point we got in and went to bar for easy dinner and drinks and had a nice relaxing. Night

Saturday we slept in which we rarely get to do and then headed to brunch and then my husband dropped we off at the spa and he enjoyed some wine at the bar.

I thoroughly enjoyed my massage and facial couldn’t remember last time I got a massage my ache muscles needed it.

After that we met up I had a drink with my husband then we relaxed more before getting ready for dinner and heading out to a great spot overlooking the ocean to eat dinner.

We didn’t stay out too late came back rented a movie in our room and got a good nights rest.

I. The morning we just grabbed coffee and headed home stopped on way to look at outdoor kitchen areas and BBQ’s and to stop for lunch.

We got the kids and we’re excited to be back I had a Tuck in Glow class at 6:30pm so Jeff hung-out with kiddos so I could get in my workout.

Monday I had a nice lunch with my instructor and another gal from barre class Kellie. It was nice having some girl time. I had so much laundry and house cleaning removing Halloween decorations and putting up thanksgiving items.

Yesterday my good friend Barbara hit the 500 club at the Barre so me and Sheri and Barbara went out after to have some girl time and celebrate Barbara at coffee.

Monday I almost forgot Savannah led the morning prayer at her school it was oh so sweet.

Our yard is getting worked on the concrete and grapefruit and dead orange tree removed dirt put in and soon grass new trees it’s coming along nicely.

Brandon had football last night tonight and tomorrow is last practice before his last game if the season.

Savannah enjoyed Soccer after school on Monday Cooking class after school yesterday and Dance class after school today.

My poor husband has been so stressed with Drama that has been stirred up at his business he’s too old to have to deal with so much he is already in blood pressure medication me and the kids don’t want to see him have a heart attack from work stress.

I’ve been getting tons of compliments from all the females I know saying my body is looking great so even though I’m not down to 26% body fat yet or even under 130 yet i know I have muscle and am toned my abs are stubborn and some underarm fat around my breasts is annoying but at 135 and 29% body fat I’m doing ok.

I’ve been missing my bestie she’s been coaching girls basketball and not down here much since of her schedule.

Hope everyone has had a great month so far! I have so much to get done still have a great night hugs 🤗

Today was quite a fun day😊🎃 Our day started getting dressed up for Halloween getting our son to school. Then we took Savannah to school my husband went to get us coffee before heading to meet me at Savannah’s school.

He decorated his trunk up great for the kids trunk or treat. I took some good pictures of Savannah and her friends before and during the Trunk or Treat.

Then I headed to do my 250th Pure Barre class and was so happy to have so many of my dear friends come to support me and cheer me on.

After that I went and got a turkey bacon avocado sun sandwich for lunch before heading back home. Sold more items on poshmark today too always nice 😊

After getting the kids from school got Savannah ready again for more trick and treat fun and have her some dinner first.

She had fun at our church doing Trunk or Treat and games. Then we took her for yogurt and we let Brandon play on Xbox since his trick or treat plans fell through.

I had a healthy delicious salad for lunch. Got my car cleaned before picking Savannah up from school.

I got my desk organized and cleaned kids rooms. Made the kids and I Enchiladas they were tasty. Watched my TiVo in the bath at end of night. Little Orange County Housewives was a nice way to unwind.

So Wednesday I had to drive to Rosarito with my father after dropping kids to school. We got there in decent time stopped at immigration to see about temporary visa they didn’t think we had everything we needed.

So we went to his house had dinner later that night he was told we did have everything and to go back in morning so I was exhausted just knowing this as it meant cross border and then cross back to do this then cross one final time ugh.

We got up early I was ready to leave before 7:30am once my dad was ready it was closer to 8:30am. It was not a smooth day we went buzzing around everywhere in and out of border from place to place and nothing got accomplished.

Then we drove back to the desert and I picked my daughter up from school. I was so mentally and physically exhausted. After spending time with kiddos and getting them situated my husband and I went out for dinner and saw Hunter Killer which is a great movie.

Saturday morning Jeff and Brandon had to leave early to drive to Victorville for Brandon’s football game. Savannah and I had her Dance class & Halloween Party to attend.

When boys got back I had dinner ready me and kids enjoyed it my husband was exhausted and needed a night out so I stayed in with the kids. Brandon watched his Alien movies and Savannah and I watched Disney Jr.

it took me forever to fall asleep. Today I was tired but got some rest before going to my Pure Reform class. Then we all went to the Golf Cart Parade to support our Tru Hero Truman who is so brave at 3 battling cancer and has such a great infectious smile and positive attitude. We all had a late lunch afterwards.

Then we went home Savannah and I napped. The boys went to the movies and Savannah and I stayed home ordered in Pizza and watched Hotel Transylvania 3 and Frozen.

Savannah had an upset stomach so I cleaned her up for bed and got her to sleep. Brandon and his lack of cleanliness has organized backpack and room was an all night project it’s now 12 am and I just got done dealing with that.

I’m hoping for a pleasant peaceful week! Right now Brandon has lost his phone and all electronics.

I’m hoping we all fell good in morning all get good nights sleep and that he can actually keep up with school work and chores.

Hope everyone had a great weekend ! 🏈🏡🙏👯‍♀️
