today, my baby took his girlfriend to his senior prom. last Saturday, my baby girl turned 20. its bittersweet, his sister came to see him don his tux and to take sibling pictures. my heart swelled. my eyes welled...he was all smiles, my baby, as he looked at his girlfriend in her beautiful red dress. I got to meet her today, Emily. a sweet young woman. my son used to look at me with love in his eyes. now, now this beautiful girl in the pretty red prom dress, her hand in his, gets that honor. its bittersweet...today, my heart swelled...my eyes welled..

so this year has been full of insanity. changes. and events. ive taken up yet another hobby...quilting... I spent a month in Texas this past summer with my best friend from high school. best friends since we were 15...pretty amazing considering I grew up a military brat. I got to see tons of things in San Antonio and catch up on years of girl stuff..lol.. I have been stitching quite a bit lately and thanks to Meari, I joined a monthly stitch along. I have enjoyed the little charts and they have come out so pretty...working on getting pictures posted. I have just recently gotten . use of a laptop...mine is disabled thanks to the dog eating the cord...don't ask...heather has been traveling with her boyfriend and his family and is getting the opportunity to see different places. I'm happy for her. but I miss my baby girl..kyle has been struggling with depression.. it has been very difficult but he is now being treated and doing therapy so hopefully he will be doing better soon. ive turned heathers room into a craft room.. it presently looks like a hurricane went through it...but it was being used as a catch all room so I decided it could catch all of my craft stuff!. I won an embroidery sewing machine and hope to get it set up and running soon.... spend a lot of time with my dad and stepmom. he has been fighting with his health lately and hasn't been doing so well. finally he is starting to feel better.. thankfully!... my blood pressure is still insane at time but I'm plugging along.... hope everyone is well..dont really know if anyone even reads my blog anymore.....

Hopefully this year will be calm hopefully. I am going to try and be a better person, a better listener, friend, mother, wife and daughter, I am goimg to try and not worry so much about what other people think or want but concentrate on what my family and what I need. I want to learn new crafts like felting this year. Last year I learned to crochet and how to use a long arm quilt machine, I'd like to learn macrame too. I have already bested myself, I've done four small sanman originals charts so far this year! I pray everyone who might come across my blog, has a wonderful happy safe new year!

As usual, i say i will try and post more often and keep everyone updated..Last year sucked..thats being nice...February i had my hysterectomy, March 5th, the day my beautiful baby turned 16, i was in the hospital having my thyroid removed. it turned out to be cancerous but thankfully no radiation was needed..i recovered from my surgeries and returned to work the end of April. three weeks after returning to work, i fell and tore the ligaments in my ankle which required me to have ankle reconstruction surgery...I have been on light duty since May 4 2012...and i continue to be on light duty because my ankle is taking its time healing...Positive side note..David has gone One year and 5 months alcohol free.. I am very proud of him! I have gone 11 days without a diet coke. I am trying to wean myself off of them because they are not good for my bp..I have been through the wringer with my bp this past year. i had to have a ct scan done to rule out a tumor on my adrenal gland and thankfully it came back negative.. my doctor has tried different meds and finally started me on a clonidine patch as well as my three bp pills i take daily...so far this week my bp has been within normal limits..so heres hoping!! Kyle is growing into a good looking young man and Heather is beautiful as ever..i am biased though...they are good kids. Heather has a boyfriend, Skylar he is a good kid and is crazy about Heather. ahhh young love..i remember it well. Jazzy is pregnant. she is going to have pups any day now. she is huge :)
