So got up this morning enjoyed hanging with kiddos. Our contractor was due to come by and get garage work done he later informed me they weren’t coming today. 

My best friend came to visit and brought me coffee what a sweetheart. My hubby was supposed to head home this morning but his workers did not show up until 1pm so he was stuck until then. But thankfully he’s going to be home tonight. 

My parents picked up the kids and took them out of town with them. I miss them so much already. But glad they are having fun with their grandparents. 

Was hoping for a date night with my hubby tonight but he’s gonna be home late. Maybe a movie if he’s home before too late. 

Happy to see our kids growing up even though it goes by way too fast. My son got his schedule for school can’t believe he starts 6th grade. Our daughter starts pre school next month. So happy she will get some structure, fun and learning. 

This week I will get both kids school paperwork turned in. Next week we get our sons school uniforms. Our daughter has her two year old check up. Then it would be nice to get out of town and have family time. 

I need to go to Pure Barre everyday that I can. There was a 20th high school reunion planned. But it fell through which is a bummer. There is a low key dinner getting planned now. I can’t believe how quickly 20 years goes by. 

It’s crazy to see everyone in different places in life some people have kids in college some have high school kids I have a soon to be 11 year old and a 2 year old. A couple of people already have grandkids. Then there are those who are just now getting engaged and married and pregnant. 

It’s a a very cool thing to see everyone and I hope it happens. After I became a mom and was raising my son on my own. I let my social life and friendships fall to the waist side. I don’t regret losing touch with most people because they just weren’t mature. 

But there are a handful of great gals that left an imprint on my heart and were excellent friend to me and I wish I had made more of an effort bo matter how hard my situation was during that time period. 

The best decisions I have made were very hard. Having my son knowing I’d be all alone raising him best decision ever. Second best decision was breaking off engagement knowing the person was not right for me and my son. I knew I wanted forever and that it was worth waiting for. 

Not long after I met my husband and after two and a half years we got engaged and married and now have added our beautiful daughter to our happy family. 

I was watching OC Housewives last night and watching that stuff makes me wonder if I really do want more than one or two close friends. Those ladies are so cruel to each other. 

I felt for the one dealing with her weight I have struggled after the birth of my daughter and actually since right after getting married with my weight and body image. 

I get very insecure at times especially when working out. I am very critical of myself and never feel like I am killing it. I sometimes feel like people talk about me or don’t think I am strong enough or doing enough. 

I really wish my little one would complete potty training but I don’t want to pressure her. She brings up going pottt day and night but rarely does go on the potty. 

I would be thrilled to travel more I want to go on tropical vacations and go back to Europe and South America, back to New York and Chicago and many places I haven’t been yet. 

I would love an adult only trip to Disneyland with my husband that would be fabulous. I am still hoping to finally go back to Las Vegas haven’t been since 2005. Want to see some shows eat great food and shopping. 

I have done my best to teach my children and to make sure my son knows to not be too shy or scared to go after what you want and to make sure he doesn’t live with regrets. 

Both our kids have the biggest hearts sweetest smiles and they are the light of my life. No matter am how sad, upset or even depressed I can get when life gets tough. I just hold them close hear their laughs or see their smiles and sweet faces and I know I am truly blessed. 

Missing my husband hope he’s home soon. 

Have a goodnight everyone and thanks for reading. 🙏🌻🏡
