Remember the time...

Remember the time when I was 17 and driving to work and I was crying so hard that I didn't see that guy on a bike? Yeah, I was scared but don't worry, I pried his bike out from under my car just fine. His name was Freddy but all his friends called him 'Spazz'.

Remember the time when Ellie was 3 weeks old and I left her for the first time and my car broke down in the middle of the intersection of State and 3900 S? I was crying that time too AND I started to lactate. That was awesome, I was sad and my car was big time out of gas.

Remember the time that I was undecided about the H1N1 vaccine and whether or not I should give it to my children? Ultimately I climbed down off of my fence and frankly, it just feels good to make a decision. The children were brave and now are vaccinated and this Mom feels at peace.

Remember the time that I stopped blogging because I was all over the map on the inside? There's only so much a girl can do to conceal that garbage and putting any type of coherent thought on the internet during that time is not one of them. It's been a while and I've just accepted that I'm a work in progress.

On the B Side: Life is good. This girl right here has tons to be thankful for and today this girl...she *feels* it.

Yay, you are back. So many of us struggly, but it is nice to read the words that sometimes we cannot write ourselves. I was worried.

I totally understand not writing much online because it's just not the kind of stuff you put out there. I was looking through my blog the other day and noticed a major change it what is posted. Now it's all about my kids and the stuff that "happens", not so much about what's really going on inside my heart and head. Someday maybe I'll start writing about that stuff again, but today I'm just grateful to know someone else understands and that I have beautiful kids to write about! :)
