Fall...what is that????

Born and raised in Arizona, I really don't get to see Seasons, per se. We have hot or cold, and that's about it. But today I walked out and it was 50 degrees outside and I was all giddy. I love when it's freezing! And then I noticed our tree. It was so pretty. It's glowing with gold all over.

Who says we don't get seasons here in hell?

This is proof that we do, thank you very much!

I'm scared...HOLD ME!

Today my baby girl is a TEENAGER!! How did this happen??? I can't believe it's already been a year since I wrote this blog post for her when she was 12.... CLICK HERE

Where did the time go? Scott always tells me I'm going to miss these days of the kiddies being little. I really never believed him until recently. I am already longing for the days when they were babies and everything was so new and exciting.

Now I'm faced with hormones, boys, junior high, boys, high school, boys, driver licenses, boys and the list goes on and on.

Excuse me, I think I'm going to throw up now! I'm not feeling so well.

Thank God for Medical Miracles!!

That is what the neurosurgeon told Scott on his last visit. You are a Medical Mystery and a Medical Miracle.

Today is the 3rd Anniversary of Scott's stroke. When I think back to that time, it makes me sad :( Even anxious. But then the day passes and I realizes that what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. Not that I'm happy that this happened but if Scott hadn't gotten sick we would have never known he had underlying issues (blood pressure, kidneys, etc)...so like his nurse told me the day after his surgery...try to look at this as a blessing in disguise. Now I wouldn't go that far as to say this was a blessing but it's true, there were some issues disguised. He didn't know and I would have really hated for him to wake up one morning and have a heart attack and never have the chance to correct it. Now that would be tragic.

This is Scott just weeks after he got out of the hospital, doesn't he look great!

So instead of letting life stand still and letting this date in history define me/us as some victim (even though I like to think it made me stronger, maybe it softened me, maybe it hardened me...maybe just maybe I don't take little things for granted anymore, like breathing on your own), no, I'm going to look at that time as a blip in our life that straightened us up and put us on the path to healing. I tell myself often not to dwell on the negative raw emotions of the events of that time, they are just to painful, but to put what happened to our family in perspective and move on! Without healing and moving forward, there's no hope and I don't deal well with a hopeless situation.

So Happy Anniversary Scott! Happy Anniversary to your 3rd year on a new lease on life...I'm so glad you survived so I can torture you some more :) I love you! More than you'll ever know!

I'm the WORST Blogger

I started this blog to keep our extended family updated on our progress and to have a somewhat journal of my children's life...well, I'm failing miserably. It's hard being a mom with 4 kids and a Facebooker...haha, seriously I need to get a grip on that addiction STAT!

Why O Why Do I Live HERE?????

I seriously cannot handle this heat. I'm suffocating! I can't leave the house because I feel ill...and when I do I almost don't even make it home. And don't even get me started on what you smell like when you peel your clothes off after being out all day. It's like living in a literal hell. If it wasn't for our families, we would move. I don't care that we have nice winters...is this really worth it? NO NO NO NO NO!!! No, I tell ya, it's NOT!

So if you see some lady shrieking down the street covering her body screaming "I'm melting"...Don't freak out..it's just me!

Can you tell I don't like the heat?

Where Have You Been???

I've been getting this question alot...and I have no real good answer....I've been busy, but I could not begin to tell you...with what. I need to get back to blogging though. I've missed so much and my online journal to my kids is severely lacking. It's like they just missed 6 months of their life :(

I'm going to do a big quick recap in my next posting and hopefully I can keep up with this darn thing. I need to prioritize it though. It's important to me...so I need to JUST DO IT!!!
