Where In The World Did You Dissappear To?
Well, that's a very long story in which I will not dive into quite yet.  What is important is that I'm back, I feel the need and desire to write again and share with others.

So two weeks ago marked my 11 year anniversary with my husband.  I am happy and proud to announce that as there were some points where 11 years didn't seem possible.  My Monkey's are 7 and 4, 1st grade and Pre-k.  Time really does fly.  Actually a quote that I heard yesterday that I am now reflecting on is that....

The days are long, but the years are short.

How true that is.  They may make you want to pull your hair out, but in the long run you don't remember those times.  Just as it is that the pain you felt during labor and childbirth is almost as if it has been numbed completely and all you can do is vividly remember the experience, but the pain isn't really there.  The love, the joy, the pride and accomplishment overwrites any pain.

The same holds true in a marriage.  There may be really really rough times, but when you start to get through them, when they become a distant memory, it's almost as though the pain and heartache never happened, like somehow maybe it was all a bad dream that you just can't shake.

In the end what matters is that in life no matter what the circumstances, however painful, we will get through, we will forget the extreme pain, but hopefully somehow we'll be able to hold on to just enough memory to keep us moving forward and growing and prospering.

I love Vampire's!
So I have to admit that I have been into the Twilight series, the True Blood series, and now The Vampire Diaries.  I do not know why, I guess as a mom of 2 I need something to put my mind on vacation for a few hours a week!  What I do want is to read the series of books that goes with True Blood, and The Vampire Diaries series. I read the Twilight series in quite a short period of time and absolutely loved them.  MORE than the movie!

These will be put on my wishlist of things to read!

Nothing like reading a good series of books during the Cold weather all snuggled up on the couch!

Monkey Kisses Is Back!!!!
I have been missing in action because I was working full time with no computer access. The opportunity arose where I can stay home and watch my niece that was born in July full time.

I am so excited because going on my 3rd week and I am loving every minute of it. I am able to stay home with my boys as well. I am doing some preschool work at home with my 3 yr old, and my 5 yr old is off at Kindergarten half day. I get to bring him to the bus stop and pick him up and not have to worry about rushing back to a job where he has to sit until 6 p.m.

I feel absolutely blessed to be able to be back home taking care of my family. I do however plan on pursuing other endeavors to try to make a little extra income. So here I am catching up, starting back on my blogging adventure that I began a few years ago, having to take a break, but now I am back!

It is going to take me a little bit of time to catch up and get back on coarse, but I am going to try!

Toddler Woes
OH MY! The hitting, the biting, the potty training, the ability to cling to a leg while it's moving, the "mine's". So frustrating. The stage is not so much fun. The fun part of it, is the way they make you laugh. I guess that part comes with it to make up for all of the distress a parent of a toddler experiences!

On another note, my 2 month old cell phone's screen is becoming fuzzy. I need my phone. I may have to go to a service center for my phone to get fixed. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. WITH WORKING, 2 kids? When possibly am I supposed to drive 45 minutes to the closest service center to get my phone fixed?

Wow Almost 1 Year Since I've Posted Last.
Well to sum it up, it's been a rough road. Ups and Downs, Bumps and Hills! Cory had gotten tubes put in his ears, and this past January Guy had to get his tonsils and adnoids out. He was contracting strep from we dont even know where about 2 times a month for a while!

We had some other family issues, but all is mending and on the way up. There has been so much that has happened. My brother-n-law died from a suicidal drug overdose which he was involved in a hit and run, and no one could find him. When they finally did find him he was gone. It was really awful. My neice of 4 years of age is left without a father. It is truly sad.

On a better note, our children have been much healthier lately. I also am still working at the preschool. I have a home in a classroom so it is nice to get to know the children and work with them almost every day. It's hard to hold a job and a household all together.

My husband has been placed on nights permanently for a while which has really taken a toll on our family. The company he works for has been going down hill and layoff's left and right, so if nights it is, then nights it is.

I miss writing on my blog, and I plan on coming back and taking some time to journal my life again. To get involved in a group of other bloggers who as well share their lives and interests!

I've missed being here and I hope to make time to be back!

WOW... Talk about being behind...

I haven't posted since April????

That is nuts!!!!

So here is what has been going on. My job is going well. It took a while for all three of us, me and the boys to adjust to the new changes. Cory has had tubes put in his ears and his adnoids removed recently so hopefully that helps out with all the problems he's been having.
Of coarse right after the surgery he caught a virus which consisted of a nasty cold. Then little Guy caught it.

We've opened our pool and have been trying to enjoy the outdoors. But amongst all of that craziness we ripped out all of the carpet on our 1st floor and put pergo. Painted and got a few new things and it looks AMAZING!!!! I dont even recognize my home when i walk in sometimes but it looks awesome and will be so much cleaner without carpet which collects EVERYTHING.

We are now about ready to rip out the carpet in Cory's bedroom and lay pergo. Then we will be transitioning Cory to his big boy bed.... Yup you heard right... I would have preferred to do this in about another year, but he climbs out of his crib and that scares me.

I hope I can catch up more frequently.. :-)
