Back from Vacation

So we left on vacation Friday August 04th we spent a night in Pismo Beach and three nights in San Francisco which was so much fun. 

After that we went to visit Stanford University where our son wants to go to college. We also stopped in Sacramento to see my Aunt Julie and her husband Doug so they could meet our little one for the first time. It was great for all of us since we hadn’t seen them since our wedding. 

We headed for June Lake stopped in Carson City to spend the night get some rest the Holiday inn Express was very clean comfortable and I would stay there again in a heartbeat. 

We then spent Wednesday through Sunday there and we enjoyed going to Gull Lake going on a boat. Bowling at mammoth rock n bowl and pizza night. Our youngest bowled for the first time it was so cute. 

Always lots to keep my husband busy working while we’re there though. He goes back Tuesday busy busy. We left yesterday and stopped to see my best friend and the family at her home. Then we took the kids to Ruby’s Diner for a delicious dinner. 

Was happy to be home but exhausted. We definitely need to call bug guy to spray house and house needs a deep clean. I have dishes going and laundry. I am feeling a little under the weather today but trying to enjoy time with our kiddos. 

Frozen, Elaina of Avalor, Mickey Mouse clubhouse and lots of the lady bug girl books. Getting energy back and kids will enjoy Katie tonight while my hubby and I get out to dinner and a movie before he has to leave town for work again. 

He’s been out all morning getting new tires for my car and my oil changed he’s the best love him so much. We are so close to the kids starting school. Want to do another Disney trip or two and I want to also let Brandon have a sleepover or two before school starts. 

Getting my Stitch Fix box tonight since Jatie was nice enough to pick it up for me on Saturday. I need to make a trip to grocery store and Costco this week. Get rest of school items for kids. I need to get back to Pure Barre. 

I am so blessed that our son adores his little sister and helps with her a lot. Thanks to him I get more cleaning done and I get to shower cook and much more when normally she’d hinder me from doing it. 

She’s growing up though and getting more independent everyday. I am excited for her to start pre school and learn more and make new friends. 

I got some amazing news this weekend my Aunt Janne does have cancer and it’s stage 4 but the prognosis is not just months to live which we were told before. She has up to five more years the doctors say with the treatments they put in place for her. It’s Breast Cancer so I need to note my new family history at my next doctors visit to be safe. 

I love my Aunt so much and am so excited that we will be able to celebrate all the holidays, birthdays and just everyday good times with her for up to five years. 

Well we never received a thank you for the fifty plus wedding gifts we sent to my step daughter Jeffs oldest Haley Ronci and her Husband Drew Logan. It looked like a beautiful wedding we would have loved to attend. 

We wish them the best and it’s unfortunate that after divorce people decide to erase not only fathers from their kids lives but grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins and even new siblings that they don’t acknowledge. I pray for this to not be so everyday not just for my family whose so deeply affected but the thousands of families being erased everyday by loved ones. 

Family is family even if you don’t acknowledge them and it’s never right to keep kids from their family or to talk poorly about family members and spread lies just because your divorced and clearly an unhappy person. I feel sorry for those who are mean spirited and negative and try to take others down because they haven’t let go and moved on. 

Forgiveness is something people need to learn they need to learn not to act like they are God.  No one is perfect and when you hold on to anger it’s like a cancer that eats away at your life. 

I have had many people cause pain in my life and I’ve forgiven and moved on. I think that’s why my happiness although not ever minute if everyday as I am human and get sad depressed and upset at times. My happiness shines through and I am happy to have the wonderful people in my life friends, family and extended family. 

I am blessed with two beautiful kids an amazing husband who is the best dad ever to our kids. Three step daughters who are in my daily prayers and I wish them well in all they do. Are sweet Charly pup who is back home with us today. 

I want to work on getting in shape even more when the kids start back to school. Getting our house completed with decorating organizing etc. 

I feel a zit coming on my forehead ugh hate those but Vacation food not the healthiest so oh well it will come and go now that I am back to healthy eating. 

We just watched Wreck it Ralph such a cute movie. I need to shower and do my hair and clean up for date night. 

My little one is napping  so time for me to get cleaned up while I can. Hope everyone is having a great day😎🙏🏡🌻
