I know I've been almost "missing" from all of the social media networks I'm a member of, I know I've been ghost from my blog, I know that I've abandoned everything that helped me, and I allowed myself to sink into a meaningless pit of pity, because a series of unfortunate events, just attacked my world and made it a little unbearable. I've been unmotivated, and there is no excuse for that. I'm holding myself accountable and telling each and every one of you who subscribe, read, or follow my blog, that I apologize. I hope you ALL can forgive me....
I do have a little news that did give me a little pick me up the other day...
~*I'm going to be published in the ALL YOU MAGAZINE Back to School Special Edition!!! Oh, ok, it's just going to be a quote, but my name will be in a magazine no less, but not just ANY magazine, MY FAVORITE magazine!!!*~
Then on the very same day.... I learned that I won a Mr. Clean Gift Basket from Mom Central!!! YEAH!!!
What have I been up to since I've been ghost... Aside from becoming extremely addicted to SIMS Social on Facebook...
I went to see my eldest nephew graduate, it was hard not to get choked up, why? Let me break it down to you really quick like, I am the youngest child, and being the youngest child you usually get served with the odds and ends of chores, tasks, duties and yes, responsibilities! When I was in High School, Jaylen was born, and he was the most beautiful, loving, smart little boy I had ever seen. Jaylen was my responsibility, I watched and cared for him for the first 3 years of his life while my sister had to be a responsible adult and take care of and help maintain our household (being the oldest), but being a part of Jaylen's life wasn't just a responsibility to me, it was like, Jaylen was my own. (WAIT) As I grew older, the love we shared remained, but distance came between us, we're not as close anymore, but I still (OF COURSE) want nothing but the best for him. So in remembering this small young, beautiful, loving, smart boy, and knowing that he's about to be an adult in a just few short months, and watching him graduating from high school,well it just blew me away!
I went to see an Advanced Screening of Madagascar 3 with Isabella, (THANKS GOES TO CROWDTAP), I thoroughly enjoyed it, note that I said I thoroughly enjoyed it. Isabella was stoked, completely, in awe of the movie, but two things happened that I didn't anticipate. #1 she didn't like wearing the 3D glasses and at first refused to keep them on, so while I WAS enjoying the movie in all of its 3D glory, she was looking at the blurs across the screen. #2 She learned the reason for the 3D glasses and began wearing them, just before she fell asleep. You see, traveling down to Washington, D.C. was a great idea, especially since it was for the advanced screening of one of her all time favorite movies, but getting up really early in the morning to see a movie that was right in the time frame of her nap.... BAD IDEA! So at about 3 quarters of the way through, she zonked out. Poor thing, but no fret, we will be OWNING this movie the first day it comes out.
Preparing for my daughter to graduate from ELEMENTARY SCHOOL! (CLARIFICATION), I have 3 daughters and 1 Son. My daughter Janelle will be graduating from ELEMENTARY SCHOOL?! Isn't that crazy! It won't be for another 3 years until Isabella ENTERS Elementary School!!! Which means ALL OF MY KIDS will be in HIGH SCHOOL!!! OMG, now I'm losing it. I digress, we bought Janelle her first dress, she chose it, she tried it on, she loved it!!! I loved that she LOVED IT! She's not by any means a dress girl, a show her legs girl, but for her graduation, she said she wanted to try something different!!! I'm so proud of me for NOT forcing her to try or be something she didn't choose for herself and look what it go me, my girl will be looking the part for her graduation! I love that!
Well, I've said a lot this post, thank you for understanding, being patient and sticking it out with me.
Until Next Time,
