Updates on all my previous posts

-my sweet Linc is a walker! :) he will be one on December 21!!

-Bri is a favorite at school and excelling to a grade level above her own! So proud of her!

-i got a "new to me" vehicle! A 2012 Chevy equinox. I love it!

-i turned down the job offer in Minneapolis. It was at the VA hospital. I really wanted it, but I wasn't ready to move away. I still rely on my parents for help and if I moved away, we'd hardly ever get to see them.

-i still use Isagenix. I use it for maintenance-keeping my weight at a consistent number. Unfortunately though, I don't get the chance to hit the gym very often.

-i am still looking for a full-time army job. Maybe reclass into a different specialty. Not sure yet, its a lot of work.

-as time goes on, I thought I was healed up from my divorce and accepting the fact that I am a single mom, but in all honesty, I am still mighty bitter. My sweet littles didn't even get a phone call on thanksgiving. I am sad for them and their lack of relationship with you know who. I have left it up to him to be present and it's getting to be less and less. Apparently having a girlfriend means you can ignore your responsibilities. I'm tired of dealing with it.

-and lastly, due to my extreme anger and bitterness, I have taken it upon myself to talk with a professional who can challenge my thinking. I am going to have to deal with you know for the rest of my life with my kids, the least I can do is change my thought process so it's not a miserable subject for the next how many years.

-but other than that sore subject, things are good! My kids and I are good! (Minus being ill) and we are blessed to have what we do have! :)

Single mom problems

Aside from my bitterness towards you know who, I've dealt with being a single mom quite well.

However, tonight (its 1am), I am officially wrecked! Linc, bri, and I all are recovering from the stomach flu. Linc has been awake more than he's slept since Wednesday. I have yet to get a full hour of sleep since then. And tonight, my friends, he is relentless. He certainly does not want to go to bed. I've tried everything!

Times like these are when I could really use a hand, especially when I have also spent the last few days sick as hell. Not to share too much information, but can you imagine being mid diaper change and having to throw up right then and there? So what do you do? Puke in the trash can while holding your wiggly monster and hoping he doesn't roll over and pee! On top of that, your 7 year old standing witness asking if you're okay... she's so precious but I sure wish she didn't have to see that.

So all I can do at this point is continue to take care of my babies and pray that we get better fast!

And a post thanksgiving shout out- thank you to my mom for all of her help with the kids and for making a delicious meal for thanksgiving! Even with sick kids, it was still a good day. I am so thankful for my kids and family. They are truly amazing people and I am so fortunate that they are mine. And to my friends, I am thankful for each of you and the times we do get together and sorry I am not around all that often! I still love you! :)
