Bringing on the New Year

Happy New Year Everyone! I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. We gained a puppy, our youngest turned one and oldest six, our 3-year-old is reading, my marriage is stronger than ever, my family has grown by one person, and school will be over this new year! I can’t believe all the amazing things we have done and we have in store for this new year.

 

I’m going to be improving myself now this new year. I have goals set and I am sticking to them! I have started using this new face mask and it has been AMAZING! My skin feels so soft after them. They’re made by pureandsimpleformoms on etsy. They’re seriously the best thing ever and the best part is that they are all organic. So, you’re not putting any chemicals o your face that will make you have a rash or something in that nature. Personally, they work wonders for me and I hope they do you as well. I go to the gym 5-6 days a week and started to really work hard keeping up with maintaining and losing the weight rather than gaining! Especially this holiday season.

I also got my new planner that I am so excited to start using! I now have a planner for pretty much everything. Everyday life, cleaning, organizing, holidays, financing, letters to my kids, mood tracker, and also my faith journal. Yes I have decided to regrow in y faith and become a catholic. This is where my spiritual guide has lead me and I am excited to see how far it takes me. This year has been full of new changes and this new year will only continue to get better.

 

I’ve learned to just get along with other people. Some people will never change and it’s better to get along with people than to constantly bicker. Especially for my children. They deserve the world and that what I am going to give them. No matter how hard it may get sometimes it’ll all be worth it when they grow up. They may not remember much when they get older about what presents they got, or where they went, but they will remember how you acted and towards people they love.

 

This new year is going to be a great one for me and I am excited! I cannot wait for things to start happening and changing. They’re so many new surprises coming and I cannot wait to share them with you all. This is going to be my best year yet! I’m not going to make this post long because I know everyone has goals to set and is going to star5t working towards them today, right? Let’s make this our year!

 

Happy New Year

Been a long time but here’s my post

Nonna and Miss Marlene

I know it has been a long time since I have last written a blog, and for that I am sorry. We have been super busy at our house preparing for a little surprise that I will announce at a later date. My daughter has also been pretty ill lately. She had what started out as a small infection on her leg and ended up having to have surgery and has now been in the hospital for almost 4 days because she cannot keep anything down. My mom has been such a huge help during this time. She is sitting here now while I type on the computer (don’t worry mom I am listening to my homework video) and do my homework/blog. 

My husband has been working crazy hours lately, our son’s birthday is coming up, we celebrated our anniversary, planning for our vacation, my father-in-law is getting worse, and it just seems like everything is falling apart. You want to know how I keep pushing through it all? I look at my children. That’s my why. They are why I do so much and try to make everything perfect for them. Yeah my kids may not remember their birthday parties where we had real live princesses there or how this toy story party is going to be a big one, but that’s what I like to do. I like to see my kids happy. Having Marlene in the hospital right now has been killing me. I hate seeing my baby so sick and not being able to do anything for her anymore. It started off that she was just in so much pain, and now has turned into something so much worse. They have her on iv fluids but she isn’t having many wet diapers. Plus, when they try to feed her, she can’t keep it down at all.

My family has been a true blessing through all of this. My dad is watching my son as we speak, my mom is watching Marlene so I can type, and tomorrow their Uncle is going to watch Liam if we have to stay the night again. BEST PART COMING UP. The girl’s mom let us facetime the children while we are in the hospital. It meant a lot to me. It truly did, because for once Marlene was actually happy and smiling to see her sisters. I was shocked but even more so thankful. It meant a lot to see Marlene happy and smiling to see her sisters. It was a breath of fresh air after nights of her being miserable. Maybe this is a stepping stone for us. I hope so!!! (:

Thank you to everyone who is on my Instagram and Facebook that has been praying for my family lately. It truly means a lot. Hopefully we can go home tonight and if not today then tomorrow. I will indeed keep everyone updated on Facebook and Instagram as well. remember to never hesitate to message me!

 

Love and peace always,

A Sick Mom

Hello Friends!

Today I woke up so sick! I could hardly move without wanting to vomit! My wonderful husband though decided to take 3 out of the 4 children to the gym and then the store, this way I could stay at home and rest. Well he had a meeting for work tonight; which meant me alone with four kids. I wont lie I am so glad they are in bed now! It was a long 3 hours without him.

The kids refused to eat, they didn’t want to pick up their toys, and it was non stop! They were whining over everything. I love my children more and more every day, but sometimes a mom needs a break. It was wonderful being alone with our daughter Marlene, but I would like time all to myself. Moms don’t get sick days. I didn’t get anything done today! I have been slacking on the housework and everything. We just got back from vacation, it was wonderful, and I am still in vacation mode. I don’t want to come back yet.

My wonderful husband cooked dinner for the children before he left and all he asked was that I make the bread sticks. Needless to say I’m so sick I was busy doing other things and burnt them. It was a good laugh when he got home though. Things are very rough in the household right now with me being sick and having all 4 kids plus my husband being home. I need to get back on schedule that way my house is somewhat back to organization rather than looking like a tornado went off in it. I know it drives my husband insane and I honestly feel bad, but I will get back to it once I start feeling better!

If it wasn’t for my husband today, I have no idea how I would’ve gotten through the day. It has been really stressful and busy. With him by my side though I know we can accomplish anything. He helps me when I am feeling down and just need someone to be there for me. He is truly my rock and I couldn’t ask for a better person to have by my side right now.

A little mom to mom rant

You know I had this whole blog written about this woman I couldn’t stand, and i was about to post it until i realized how petty i was being. I need to stop letting these little things bother me so much. Its just hard working hard to get where you are and others get things handed to them. it drives me insane anymore. I started this blog to help others like me. step moms who aren’t involved because they cant be, women suffering from endometriosis, women suffering from  failing marriage, how to manage having a manipulative man, dealing with an abusive man, managing mayhem daily, all your planning needs, and basically anything else that you want t talk about.

I was excited how many views I got on my regular wordpress blog the first night, and th is why i decided to make this one. I hope that people will start seeing the honesty behind my blogs and why I write them. I want people to know someone is always here and will always care. I went through a lot of struggles in my past and now look a me. I’m a stay at home mom blogger, who hopes and prays that her blog will take off one day.

Im beginning to realize more and more in my life that I overthink a lot. I need to just slow down and hold on, because its never an easy ride. Life is tough, but so am I. I have been doing a lot better since i started to make my own planner inserts though. I really like the way they turned out and am excited to start making more. Doing those little things don’t let the other little things bother me. I get to preoccupied.

heres to hoping and praying my blog will soon flourish and be everything I want it to be.

Loving Life

Sitting here tonight doing my schoolwork, yes I’m in college, I started to realize how truly lucky I am. I have a wonderful husband who works very hard to support our family. We may fight and really dislike each other at times, but we will always love one another. We have a total of 4
