Wearing my 'Big Girl' Panties!!


Life is such a busy thing huh?? I feel like I have not slowed down since I got back on my feet last November!! Problem is, I have been soo very busy that when I have a moment, or a day with down time, I tend to sleep the day away knowing how much my body appreciates the rest....this leads me to the disorganization of my house ~ The Thanksgiving / Christmas decorations are still not put away properly!! I was very focused on work, home and kids until I fell in love last summer and that changed everything, even my priorities a bit... My house is in more of a disarray as I am traveling more so I am not home to take care of it like I used to... My son Garrett is awesome and helps out tremendously!

My sweetheart and I are in limbo of sorts.. we HATE being apart, but with the economy like it is we cannot even consider changing jobs much less our geographical location...school is still in session until early June so we are taking it as it comes... cherishing every moment we have together on our honeymoons...#27 was yet another AMAZING weekend together ~♥~

I have been putting all of our photos in an album and we have one FULL already!! I don't think I had this many photos of my ex-factors in years of marriage... We both enjoy the camera and document our time together with lots of fun!! Its almost like if I don't get them in an album now they will stay in the packages like Savanna's baby pictures still are.. I feel soo very guilty, Garrett has an awesome baby book, journal and lots of photo albums and Savanna has a half completed book and no journal and the photos still need to be put in albums... that's the way it goes with the 2nd child...

Savanna is growing up soo rapidly!!! She is all of a sudden 'girlie' with her hair and make up and clothes and even has a crush on a boy!!! Slow down my little princess!! I am not ready for her to grow up yet...

Garrett is trudging thru the last high school credit in his classes...He chose to finish school at an alternative school instead of traditional high school and I just wish for him that it was easier.. I am not prejudice at ALL and have raised my children to not see color where people are concerned but he is the ONLY white kid at the morning session of these classes and I know its not a great environment for him, bad spirits & all! He is going to check out the local community college and I am praying that there will be another option for him that is better than what he is dealing with every day...

My hair is growing long again... I am always ready to cut it off at this point b/c it does not hold the curl for a 2nd day and I HATE putting lots of product in my hair.. My hair was 'stick' straight all my life until after I had my daughter.. then my body chemistry changed and the white hair grew in and it was curly as could be!! I have learned to deal with it and having high maintenance hair is NOT my thing... but I do have beautiful hair so for that I am grateful... now I just have to decide if I am going to go see Pete and let him do his magic or not! I LOVE ALL things GIRLY!!


Work life is crazier than ever! 'Tweety Bird' is just that, and screws things up more than she helps out but I am not the one paying her soo.... I just have to let it go!!

I caused some drama of my own the weekend before this last one (not really intentionally but non the less I could have refrained) Now I just have to deal with the aftermath and see what is clear after the dust settles!! I am reading a book about 'Mean Girls all grown up' and it has been most enlightening!! I try to practice the Golden Rule on a daily basis and its amazing to me how many people are just out for themselves without a care in the world for those around them... I wish sometimes I could give the world just a little therapy... everyone would benefit :) and the world would be a happier place because people would realize how important it is to learn self love... then everything else falls into place! Dream on Sarah........
I Love My Blog and miss it when I don't have more time in my days / weeks to unload all the CRAZI thoughts racing through my head.. I still journal at night when I cannot sleep.. Good thing I don't have Internet @ home right now.. I may never get to sleep! I am comfortable wearing my BIG GIRL Panties, how about you?????

You have always had a way with words. I have missed your blogs but as we both know life happens sometimes. I am so very happy that you have found a true love. I know that you will be happy together someday soon and as we both know we need patience and there is a reason for everything. Your kids are better people simply because you are there Mom. What a great way to grow up knowing that you are able to discuss life and your own journeys. I know that I have had a better life because you have been in mine. Our friendship has gotten me through some very ruff times and I am very grateful and pray that someday we can live close and spend time together again. Love you dahling. Thank for being you.
