Since my last post I've...
-Been to Cabo San Lucas. (Pre swine flu, yet during the drug wars. Still, a wonderful trip.)
-Survived MASSIVE changes at the office.
-Been to Disney countless times. God love the Annual Pass!
-Realized that my mother is mentally ill and is no longer capable of taking care of herself.
-Affirmed my never ending love for Mister who has spent hundreds of agonizing hours trying to get my unemployed, uninsured mother the help that she needs.
-Potty trained Sir. (Ma'am potty trained herself at 18 months. By 2 she had a pretty high success rate. I deemed myself "The Most Amazing Mother in the World" and KNEW I would have the same success with Sir. While I still think I'm a pretty amazing mother, I now realize that I am not "The Most" and that Ma'am is the AMAZING one! Sir took awhile to grab hold of the concept but he's now an expert. At two and a half, I am done buying diapers for him!)
-Gained 30 lbs. Yes, 30. Gulp.
-Started working out.
-Read probably 100 books. (I've always been a bookworm. Southern Chick Lit and mysteries are my favs.)
-Had my car detailed. (Yes that is a big enough deal to make this list. Poor Buffy looked like an unloved street urchin.)
-Started coloring my own hair. Every 4 weeks. To hide the grey.
-Started having my under arms waxed. I'm on the 3rd go round and think I like it!
-Completed my Provisional Project and Provisional year in the Junior League. (Yes, I was the oldest living Provisional alive.)
-Watched Ma'am graduate from Pre-K.
So there you have it. I have spent the last few months, living my life. There have been some ups (Cabo, potty training, graduation), some downs (my mom, my work, my mom) and some downtime (Disney, books, gaining 30lbs). It's not glamourous and carefree, filled with excitement or luxery; but one thing that it is full of is love. And at the end of the day, I may not blog or return calls but I love every day and know that I am loved. And that's good enough for me.
