I'm Back!!

I don't even know where to begin.

First off I didn't realize I started the posts with my parents' ashes and then dropped off the face of the earth for 5 months.  I really, really, really want to get back into blogging again.  Let's just see how it goes.

So updates, starting back in October-ish...

~Annabel started school!  She loves it, her teachers tell me she's their favorite, she's speaking more than ever, she's developed and adorably sassy personality.  She's really becoming her own little person now.

~Annika loves kindergarten.  She's super advanced for reading and gets to check out the "big kid" books at the library.  They talked about skipping her to 2nd grade but I don't want her to next year, I'm worried she'll feel too "young".

~Our house sold in January.  We have now been separated since June 2015, our divorce will be finalized on May 3rd.  I will address this a bit in another post another day.

~The girls and I moved to a wonderful apartment only 5 minutes away from the beach.  It's an older complex but so far we are loving it.  The girls now share a room with a bunk bed and they love it.

~I'm doing good.  Really I am.  I'm happy besides the occasional stress I feel from being a single mother and getting very few breaks to just breathe.  But it is getting easier.  I need to learn to ask for help which I hate doing, especially since I no longer have any family locally.

So again, sorry for being so sporadic with my blogging but I'm hoping to get back to it now!


  1. Hey chick!! Nice to "see you" around again! I was so sorry to hear about the separation/divorce. Happy to hear everything is going well for you though. Having no family around is so hard, couldn't imagine being a single mom on top of all of that. We have exciting news, if you haven't checked out my blog you may want to do so now. ;)

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your separation and pending divorce. That is so sad. And the house we watched you guys build just a few short years ago Glad to read that you are doing ok. Must be so hard, I can't even imagine starting over.
    Hope you continue to blog more regularly. It's been a few weeks now since I updated mine.
