~In the words of the Grammar Snob.....I tend to curse and make little things seem like BIG FREAKING THINGS and overreact and think the world revolves around me. BUT! I can be sweet and charming sometimes. You should focus on those times.~

I yet again have not had the time to blog recently. With work, school, kids, and trying to get some sleep in here or there, I just haven't had the time. So here's an update of my world.

Cori is enjoying the end of her school year. She has made so many girl friends this year, which has me breathing a sigh of relief. She is still swimming at Teacher Lynda's where I work. She is incredible! I think she will be a way better swimmer than I ever was....and I was good!LOL She has also been taking a gymnastics class with her friend, Sierra, once a week and will be taking more ice skating lessons this summer, as well as being on Ironwood's swim team. I'm really looking forward to watching her swim meets! She is growing so tall and beautiful. I am making a goal to spend more one-on-one time with her this summer.

Ethan is still my best boy. He is the sweetest thing on the planet. I love him so much! I won't go into detail of all the medical issues we have been addressing with him, but I feel we're making progress. He just recently got glasses for reading and is so cute in them! He will also be swimming and Ice skating this summer along with Summer School. We made the decision not to hold him back after all. I'm really not sure if it's the right decision, but I don't have a clue what the right one is! He is behind academically because he has had such behaviour issues this year. I really hope that with my mom's help, and a teacher next year who will be more understanding, we will be able to get this very bright wonderful boy up to where he needs to be. I'm determined to love that kid enough to help get him through life!

Georgia, or Lil g, as I call her is one spunky little girl. She finally acclimated to preschool and her teachers are please with her progress. She will be going to Paseo Verde next year because Mrs. Hailey is being transferred there. Mrs. Hailey has been such a blessing to all 3 of my children that I can't imagine putting Lil g anywhere else. I get to spend a lot of one-on-one time with Lil g, and we just have so much fun. She's as ornery as they come! She will be doing swim lessons this summer and skating lessons with the other two as well. I know she's excited.

As for me I am getting ready to enroll in summer school. I'm also preparing to enroll in the Phlebotomy program at PC next Spring. I'm on the road to nursing school but need to take the necessary stepping stones so I can have a decent job while I'm in school. I'm still working at the pool about 10 hours a week or so and hosting karaoke several nights a week. Both things work well in my schedule so that my mom can watch the kids while I'm working. I wish I could find something else to fit in my schedule that would bring in a bit more money. Things are super tight, but I think they are for everyone. I'm looking into donating plasma and other things that might help. Too bad I'm too old to donate my eggs! LOL I make pretty cute kids! LOL I don't think many people read this, it's really more of a journal for me. I need to take a minute and be thankful for a very special person who has come into my life. I'm not ready to put out too many details to the world, but I have been becoming closer and closer to my friend, Rob. He is becoming my closest friend, and dare I say, perhaps the man I will spend my life with. He came in and restored something that shattered in me when I was very little. My dad wasn't around hardly at all. He didn't help my mom support us very much. And after a minor falling out I haven't spoken to him since right after Ethan was born in 2003. It's sad, and I wish it were different, but him not being in my life killed something inside of me at a young age. I had very little faith in men. Rob has breathed some new life in me and has given me a sense of hope. I am looking forward to introducing him into my life with my kids and my family. Now for the couple people who are reading this DO NOT PANIC! I am not rushing into anything anytime soon! I'm being careful and cautious, but know that I wouldn't introduce a person into my kids' lives if he weren't the best thing for me or them.


  1. Hi Gigi,
    Thanks for the invite to your blog. Great to catch up on you and the kids. You are a busy girl. Your kids have grown so much since you used to send the monthly letters. Are you scrapbooking at all? I haven't since Nov. Rob? Alan? I can only guess here.
    Sending you some sweet cyber Sunday hugs to you and the kiddos.

  2. Hey Gigi!
    I was going to leave you a note on FB saying, what the heck witht the private blog!? But then I saw your email. Thanks for the invite!
    It is great to hear the kids are doing well and most of all that you are! Rob sounds like a great guy! I think things are tight for a lot of people...so you just keep on keepin' on!!! :-)
