Goin' for a splash....

The kids and I are going to Coco Key Water Resort today, with some good friends. I'm going to try to get in the water with them. You see, I hate cold water, so I'm often a party pooper! Luckily they will have friends to play with if I chicken out. Besides, I will need to snuggle my friends beautiful twin babies!

Things are good with my dad he is making progress at the treatment center. I'm cautiously optimistic.

I just found out I have gained 12 pounds in a couple years, plus I had some to lose before I gained that. I'm going to kick my butt in gear, and get in shape. Just wait you'll see!

I also get to go to San Diego in November. It has to be my all time favorite place, and I've been to Cancun. Can't wait!!!!

Cold, rainy, and it's really gettin' me down...

Did I ever tell you my daughter is kinda funny...or gross...

She didn't kill it... I promise

Yes, she did find all these creepy crawlies in one day... she's the creepy crawly whisperer

Wish I could be a more consistent blogger, not that anyone reads this that I know of anyway. If you do thanks, sorry I'm so boring :0

Just feelin' kind of depressed today. Wondering why so many people get to have more babies and I don't. We have spent $6,000 down the drain trying to conceive for the last two years. Hopefully we will start our adoption in December, but I'm just feelin' low today. It feels like it's too big of a mountain to climb. I can't imagine how we will get $13-17,000 more saved up. We have a huge chunk saved up now, that will just get us started.

Spent last week putting my father in a homeless shelter while he is waiting to go to a different treatment center. Nothing like being called at 9 in the morning and being told your father is on a greyhound bus, and he wants picked up at 6 p.m. Over an hour away from where I live, when I had a million things going. But, hey, lets mess up another day of my life, who's counting anymore. I'm so thankful that I have a Heavenly Father that is always there for me!

In other news... we went to Vala's Pumpkin Patch a few weeks ago. Love that place! School is going swimmingly. I've made it two months living with my in-laws, one month to go. If only we could find a place to rent that was decent, and in a safe part of town. I'm running again! Yay!!!! Not losing any weight, but I'm just going to keep pluggin' away.

Have a good weekend!
