I know I haven't posted anything in a while. This is not due to the lack of things to talk about but more not knowing how to express my thoughts in words. The biggest thing in my mind right now is realizing how I just couldn't make it as a single mother. I am so thankful for a husband who plays an active roll with the girls once he comes home from work in the evenings. He has been out of town for the last 4 days and gets home late tonight....yeah!!!!! We made it. Don't get me wrong, I love my girls to death and enjoy doing so much with them but come 5:00 or 4:00 in my world right now I am just done or need a break from the... "MOM, you make me do everything!" Kylee's latest phrase right now as I think she is realizing that I'm not here to just be at her beck and call. or, "Mom, I'm so bored!" Or, "no mom you're not incharge I can do what I want." Trust me, I really do love this girl to bits but she is sure testing the waters right now. However, my husband is coming to my rescue. He gets 20 vacation days a year right now and we often use them for family trips or when his family comes to visit or for the trip he just took to see his brother that just got back from his mission....all great great things! But I want a vacation day too! I'm heading back to Florida!...don't kill me everybody...I know I was just there. Skylar, is staying home with the girls while I spend a few days with my mom and sister. I'm just beyond excited and can't believe we've pulled this off. It has been one crazy year with Lexi and me both trying to recover and one emotional rollercoaster. I'm nervous to go and am trying to have everything in order. I know Sky can handle it but you all know how much I worry about everything. The goal is to just fully relax...something that is difficult for me to do. I'm always thinking about something or knowing I should be spending my time differently but in these conditions I better pull it off. Thanks Sky for allowing this to happen. You definitely win the #1 husband award from me!
