a recap....or short version of the last few months that might end up a long version....

so i've been using the letter format, which i like very much, but i think i'm gonna break that habit for just this one post because there are so many things that i would like to say and they are kinda pouring out and wouldn't really even sound right in letters.....

i moved out in april. it was the hardest and longest thought about decision i have ever made. it has been so up and down and well....... all over the place i sometimes feel like i have to sit down just to think straight.

i have been angry and sad, happy and cheerful, frustrated and scared and a whole host of emotions.

so lets recap....

i moved out in april into an apartment, my first time living alone. i took very little with me and had to learn that when you decide to make macaroni and cheese because your eight year old loves it, you should make sure you have a pot in which to boil the water.

after you run out to the store to get the pot as well as a spoon because you remembered you would need something to stir those noodles, and then you get home and cook it ....

well wouldn't it be funny to learn you dni't own a colander either....

sending you back out to hte store to purchase said colander.

anyway, suffice it to say, i have finally stopped realizing the basic essentials i don't have, i think i am mostly stocked up.

the rooms are furnished, yes we finally havea couch to sit on, which was totally worth the wait....

and even though our mattresses are still on the floor, we are happy.

we enjoy spending days together by the pool, making tacos together, going to the movies together, laying in bed reading books together and just being mother and son.

my family has been amazing and just last night my sister gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, and all of us were there surrounding her and i was thinking to myself, how lucky am i?

my heart is full dear friends.

though sometimes i express my frustration and anger here, i have so much more to me than that. i have been taking a crap load of pictures, which i love to do and will eventually get it together long enough to share some on here....

things are well with me:)

Good deal! I'm happy to hear some great things going on in your life right now! I know times can be very tough - I had to repurchase a ton of things and learn to live alone again after I left my 1st husband. Girl, if I lived near by, I'd give you a house-warming party!
