Moving Day...

So... yesterday was the big day.

I moved out of my house into a new little place. It is a huge adjustment, and I am not sure how I feel about it yet.

Things are moving along, and althought I know both Hubs (wow, I guess I need to change that name) and I have made the right decision, these are still uncertain times.

I appreciate all your kinds words and support. And would ask you continue to keep us in your prayers.


Mom, I wouldn't know what to do without you. You are my backbone through this process! You make me laugh when I am crying, and you pick me up when I have crumbled to the floor. You are so much more than a mom! You are the greatest friend a girl could have! And I love you!!!

L, damn girl, you have done so much I just cannot thank you enough! Coffee makers, free glasses (and hershey kisses), making kitchen cabinets looking fabulous, and always an ear to hear my woes :) I love ya! And it means the world to me to have you as a friend!!!

And T, you have given me so much advice, and done so much stuff I don't even know where to begin to thank you! So... thank you! Just thank you!!

This blog is my outlet...

So therefore... you blog readers... are my friends. With that said, I feel like I have been leading a double life and I feel it is time to share a little of my true life with you.

Over the past months, Hubs and I have decided, it is best for B, and ourselves that we not remain married.

Hubs and I are very good friends, but we are not very good married people. We feel that B deserves to grow up with two people that love each other and can show him what a true marriage should be.

This has been an extremely hard decision to come to and it has been a long, winding journey, that we are both still going through.

It is also the reason, my blog posts have been few and far between.

As far as B is concerned, we are both his parents, and we still love him with every ounce of our beings, so we are going to do our very best to be the best parents we can be. He is our main priority and we hope he knows just how much his Mommy and Daddy love him.

I would ask that you pray for B, myself, and Hubs through this VERY difficult time. It has been so hard on everyone, I can only hope it gets better soon.


Your little Italian!

Babies and Momma's

My IBF Kelli sent this to me, and I just had to share it. Beautiful!!

*Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

*Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

*Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles.

*Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck and I will buy you one if he comes by.

*Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I have made where you are concerned.

*Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them.

*Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys.

*Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you were born and how much I love you..

*Just for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub andnot get angry.

*Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars. *Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite TV shows.

*Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be grateful that Godhas given me the greatest gift ever given.

*I will think about the mothers And fathers who are searching for their missing children, the mothers andfathers who are visiting their children's graves instead oftheir bedrooms, and mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms watching their children suffer senselessly, and screaming inside that they can't handle it anymore.

*And when I kiss you good night I will hold you a little tighter, a little longer.. It is then, that I will thank God for you, and ask Him for nothing, except one more day

11 Months!!!

Well, since today is St Patricks Day, I find it very fitting that Mr Man is feeling quite green :(

He is doing so many things at 11 months, it saddens me his big day is spent feeling so crappy. The think he has the flu, so we are just going to have to wait it out.

Some things he is doing.

  • He mimics everything you do, like says no, no, no, or laughs when you laugh or kisses you when you give him kisses.
  • He runs around everywhere, he finds he can get places much faster this way
  • He squats, picks up something, then walks off with it
  • He LOVES Mochachino. He goes up to him, so he can kiss his face, and he will just laugh and smile!
  • He has 4 teeth - top 2, bottom 2
  • He does art projects at school
  • He knows what a cow says
  • And he gives the BEST high 5's around!!!

Overall he is just a joy. I just wish he felt a little better to celebrate with me.

One day, love bug, you and I will share a green beer :)

OH MAN and my favorite song. In. The. Entire. World. PYT!! And guess who sang it... HELL YEAH. Danny Gokey! Oh man, this night could not get any better!

Not to mention there were so many good singers tonight. I am so pumped about this season.

My First Post From Work...

It's lunch time people... get your head out of the gutter :)

Today, has been awesome. Extremely productive. Super energetic. And kind of relaxing.

I love what I am doing, so it makes the day fly by.

Right now, I am eating soup at my desk, and most of the office is out to lunch. I can't say this is a bad thing, as most of the time - as a stay at home mom - you are shoving food in your mouth while trying to feed the munchkin.

Although, I miss Mr Man like nothing I have ever felt before, I feel relieved I have a job in this economony and that I get some me time.

The only thing I am worried about is the fact that on the 17th of this month Mr Man will be 11 moths. DID YOU HEAR THAT... one month away from his very first birthday. Aaahhhhh! Ok... slightly freaking out now!

Not to mention, my grandmother and all my awesome family comes in town on the 17th of March (for my Nanny's 85th birthday) so I will have zero time to plan this bash.

OMG I don't know what to do. Must. Get. That. Together.

Ok... moving on. Back to work folks.

Have a good one!

My first day of work

Could not have gone better!!!

The Owner, the office manager (his wife), and the VP, all took me out for lunch and we chatted about golf and the batchelor. It was awesome.

The hours are AMAZING - especially for the work I am in. The people are really nice and everyone was very helpful.

Not to mention, I get to really start tomorrow and jump on the phones. WOOT!

I think this is going to be an amazing experience, and I am so excited I got this opportunity.

Tomorrow's the Day!!

My very first day of work, since Mr Man entered the world :)

I am excited and nervous and hopeful things are going to go well!

I am sure when I get there, I won't know what to do and where to sit and so on, not to mention all the first day jitters, but after tomorrow, I am sure it will be smoothe sailing!

I am so excited to start my career again.

Working in an office, smelling coffee throughout the day, people talking on the phone, commuting, all the things most people hate, I am looking forward to. It has been a long time and my mind and soul are ready for this journey.

Woo hoo!

I'll blog tomorrow evening to let you know how it goes :D

The first day...

Well, the first half day of daycare... went surprisingly well.

Mr Man has had a stuffy nose (from teething) since Friday, and I was worried it was more or a cold this weekend, but the drainage is clear (sorry... TMI) so I proceeded with the plans and dropped him off this morning at his daycare.

He went right to the nice lady and was playing around. I don't even think he looked up at me.

I gave him a kiss and walked right out the door. The tears welled up in my eyes a little, but I peeked in one last time before I left, and he was just happy as a lark. Playing on the ground with the other kids, like it was no big thing. Oh Mr Man, you are such a big boy! Where did time go??

I picked him up at 1pm and he was asleep in his crib (adorable!) and the ladies were so nice, they had his bag packed and everything was being cleaned. It was so sweet.

Tomorrow he will stay for a little longer than half the day, and I know he is going to do great! My mind is truly at ease with this daycare and this process, I know when I start work Wednesday, I will be able to concentrate and not worry about my love bug.
